Coffee Break: Café Lali

Since the arrival of our little fluff ball Kimchi, we have had very few calm moments to ourselves. Last week, we decided to go out and explore in Pointe-Saint-Charles and St-Henri on a fairly rainy day while leaving the fluff ball at home for some R&R. We rarely every go down that way, and it…

Out & About: Bref, “C’est du papier!”

Dernièrement, je suis allée me promener dans le Mile End pour visiter ma boutique préférée, Bref Mtl, pour son vernissage de la nouvelle thématique “papier”. Comme on approche tranquillement du temps des fêtes – just saying, mais il reste 84 jours avant Noël – je commence à faire mes listes d’inspiration pour mes cadeaux tout en…

Out & About in Toronto: Kensington Market

When you visit downtown Toronto, you’re guaranteed to be told to check out Kensington Market.

There are so many artists that will be in town for this two week festival, you would honestly need to have the superpower of being a multiple places at once, or…

Out and About: Revolution x MBAM

We had the immense pleasure of being invited to the grand opening of the Revolution exhibit put together by the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal. From the moment I set foot in the hall, I was brought back to the moment my parents bought me my first Beatles album…

On teste: Vernissage “Bougez!” de Bref,

Ok, je vous le cache pas, il y a une histoire d’amour entre moi et la boutique Bref, … Désolé ma Sweet Patate (aka Marie-Ève) de te l’annoncer en même temps que le monde entier, mais j’pense que t’avais des soupçons! Pour ceux qui sont nouveaux et qui n’ont pas vu notre article sur le…

On teste: Marché Cool Cool Market

Le weekend dernier, j’ai eu la chance de découvrir quelques nouveaux artisans lors du Marché Cool. C’est le temps de l’année où que les marchés commencent à devenir de plus en plus fréquents, avec toutes sortes de thématiques et artisans. Le Marché Cool se distingue de ces marchés pour quelques raisons; ce sont les artistes-même…
