EIFFEL & HERMÈS

  Octobre avance à pas feutré sur le tapis de feuillage défunt. L’attente au milieu de cette majestueuse chambre n’est pas si exécrable. M. White m’a laissé seule avec mes pensées. Son horaire débordant de réunions d’affaires me laisse visiter Paris sous mon parapluie. Je me laisse tomber sur le lit blanc colossal qui meuble […]

BRIDAL BEAUTY PREP ROUTINE

We are already LESS than one week away from the BIG day…  Action, action, action. There is no time for an introduction. Time is ticking! Here is my bridal beauty prep routine. I started a healthy food (eat your greens) + lemon&water routine a month ago. Gym, pilates and yoga were also added to my […]

LE PARFUM DES LILAS

Le petit chaperon rouge,  me lisait-elle chaque nuit avant de fermer les yeux. Le parfum des lilas me poursuivait. 
Le mois de mai fleurissait grâce aux pluies printanières.
 Elle me surveillait de loin et priait pour moi à travers ses yeux fatigués. Son chapelet de bois de cerisier glissait entre les cicatrices de ses mains […]

ROYAL BLUE BLOOD

Depuis deux ans, c’est la même histoire. Montréal, New York, Paris. Mr.White, Cuddle King, Nelligan. Toujours le chiffre 3. Le chiffre 3: les trois mousquetaires, trois petits cochons, les trois souhaits du Génie, les triplettes de Belleville, etc. Alexandre le Grand, il eut des idées de grandeurs, mais il était considéré comme un barbare aux […]

WEDDING DIARY #1 DRESS SHOPPING

Subject no 1 : Wedding Dress shopping.   AHHH, isn’t so exciting? For me; shopping for a birthday dress can sometimes take weeks. It took months of Pinterest time, google search, sample sales and ¨I want to try the most expensive one¨ to finally find my dress. It was a long process and it wasn’t so […]

OPHÉLIA

Un silence flottait au-dessus de mes pensées. L’odeur de l’eau emplissait ma tête. Mon regard reflétait la glace. Mes yeux se posèrent sur mon double. L’éclair d’un instant, je revis un enfant. Les yeux creux et l’âme blessée, ne sachant plus où aller. Ce regard forestier m’enveloppait soudainement. L’enfant égaré n’est point un mirage. Simplement, […]

PAUL, CHARLES ET ARTHUR

    Seuls les Verlaine, Baudelaire et Rimbaud de ce monde comprennent le mal de vivre de Nelligan. Les poètes maudits auxquels je me réfère sont des êtres incompris.
Incomprise, je suis victime de ma propre existence. Ligotée sous une impuissance lourde qui coupe le souffle, son haleine empeste le camphre. Salons et cafés littéraires ont […]

TEL UN OBJET

Je pensais partir. Peut-être rejoindre ma grand-mère pour quelques temps. Il l’a vu dans mes yeux. Il a vu mon échappatoire et il n’a pas su se retenir. -Putain, tu n’es qu’une imbécile. Même ta mère te le dit. Tu ne peux pas continuer à fuir les problèmes. Aucun pays chaud ni soleil ne pourra […]

ROSÉ & MIGNONETTE

Le ciel de Montréal est si joli, me dit-il en levant les yeux vers les strates de nuages aux multiples teintes rosés.

5 REASONS WHY YOUR MOM SHOULDN’T BE YOUR WEDDING PLANNER

25SHARESFacebookTwitterSubscribe Moms always know best.

TO LOVE OR NOT TO LOVE?

  I don’t know if it’s the weather “à la merde” here in Montreal or if it’s the winter blues because my brain is frozen. I cannot sit down and write. Every writer has a moment where inspiration lets him down. Everyone knows that a blank page has an open heart to blame. Loves makes […]

NATURAL LOOK 101

Being ¨au naturel¨ is not only on the outside but on the inside also. I love being myself and I embrace it. I laugh so hard I definitely scare off the elephant in the room. Some people judge, so what? I am who I am and you are who you are, with all your flaws and [...]

HALF TIME

  I needed a break from all this fashion frenzy. Anna Sui’s romantic bohemian spirit makes me want to go buy a flowy dress. Never mind, i’ll stick to my Balmain’s check jacket. Snow is insisting to stay a little bit longer, even though Spring/Summer trends have arrived in every store on Fifth Avenue. I’m […]

L’AMOUR AVEC UN GRAND K

La St-Valentin approche et les vautours se rapprochent… Seule ma plume ne fane pas sous l’humidité de la literie. L’effluve des roses n’est pas assez puissante pour m’attendrir. Ton corps l’est. Les grands auteurs sont souvent plus près de l’Amour que les Humains… m’a dit un jour Nelligan… L’amour avec un grand K. Kate je […]

FRENCH FRIES À LA BARDOT

AN OPEN LETTER

WHAT’S LOVE ? And there she goes again with all the right and wrong questions because she really means it when she says “I have no clue.” Love…That four-letter word I don’t know anything about except for what I share with my friends and family. I know. I know. It’s obviously not the same thing. […]

LUSH BATH BOMBS

Something I’ve been very much into as of late are bath bombs and essential oils. There is just so much variety, flavor and color.
