Need a new suit?

(Alexander Wang Resort 2013)

Looking for a new swimsuit for your next beach vacation?  How about the newest collection from the master of urban sportswear?  Yes, yes, Alexander Wang probably made the best swimwear collection this spring with sleek silhouette and athletic details in neutral shades of black, white and taupe.

I personally love the white mesh combo one piece (which can double as a body suit and worn with a maxi skirt this summer).  The racerback and zipper detail is just perfect!

Black & White is always classy, but Veronica Zoppolo somehow manages to make it look naughty.  Is it the lips or the cat eyes?

SHOPPING - Zara Shoe Haul

I'll admit it this much: I have a substance problem...with shoes!  I can't walk away from beautiful footwear...especially on SALE!

All I wanted was to get Ayden a few pairs of jeans/pants on sale at Zara and I walked away with:

  • Camel suede western ankle boots (they look great with skirts/dresses too!)
  • Embellished black leather moto boots (perfect for strolling around in style once my little Olivia will be born)
  • Nude suede kid-heel with embellished ankle straps (saw another woman tried them on and they're simply too pretty)
  • and 1 pair of belted corduroys for Ayden...

And all that for a mere $165 with taxes!!!  So you can't really blame me...blame the Zara for having fabulously styled and priced shoes in my size!


(Nike Free Run+)

Let's say that despite my addiction for shoes, I generally don't spend much time at Footlocker!  In fact, I only own one pair of training runners (converse and wedge sneakers not counted) and it was purchased almost a decade ago...time to upgrade?  Yes, please!

So, I've decided on a pair of Nike Free Run+ in fuchsia pink.  Now, is it silly to buy a new pair of runners just for to and from my yoga classes and have absolutely no intention of jogging/running in them?

_(Ham) Bar

My girlfriend invited me for brunch today at Hambar, a cute restaurant inside the Saint-Paul hotel in Old Montreal.  Given the name of the place, I presume they would serve ham, among other things for brunch...good enough!

Well, they celebrate ham!  5kgs full leg of various ham were hung at the entrance and there's a cold cut section at the back, right next to the glass wine storage.  We were very tempted to order a platter of charcuterie (every other table ordered and it looked so good) but knew we would never finish it.

Instead, I opted for the smoked salmon on english muffin, avocado, poached egg and creamy goat cheese and my friend ordered “Pain perdu” with wild mushrooms, poached eggs and parmesan.  Ayden had french toast with pears and caramelized pecans.  Yummy!

This weekend...

I plan to do the following: watch SATC (all 6 never gets old) and eat fresh strawberries dipped in Nutella!

What will you be doing this weekend?


I accidentally came across Hedvig from The Northern Light on Chictopia and have been following her blog for a little over a month now.  This London girl sure knows how to dress the part, even while being pregnant (actually, that's what caught my attention - her fabulous maternity style...and she's due around the same time as me!).

I love her androgynous style: sexy, boyish and totally nonchalant!  If only I was 5" taller (you know, closer to your average 5'10" model figure), maybe I could have pulled off some of her looks too!

Feels like Spring?

(Chanel Spring 2013 Collection)

It's still -30 °C outside, but the new Chanel Spring 2013 makeup collection is already out!  The colours are beautiful and I'm really looking forward to try the 571 Fracas vernis nail boost my winter grey spirit!  Although a little Barbie-ish, it might just be the exact blue-pink shade I've been seeing on the runway.

I must say it's quite a challenge to dress (with some sense of style) while being pregnant, especially when you're due in a little over a month!  Lately, I find myself in leggings and t-shirts most of the time. Maybe it's because nothing fits me; maybe it's because I'm getting lazy; maybe it's because of the freezing cold Canadian weather!  Either way, I've not been very inspired to dress properly.

But today, it's my birthday!  I guess I should be putting some effort...even though it's just gonna be a casual family dinner.

Knock Knock!

Who's there?  It's the UPS guy with a parcel at my doorsteps!  I think I know what it is...and YES!  It's my birthday gift - Pamela Love Talon cuff in silver!

Thanks hubby!  I love it! I love it! I love it!!!
