I could not resist taking these pictures, the place is fascinating! The café itself offers so many options, from fresh juices to pastries, to coffee... The staff is very welcoming and the music playing is similar to old jazz (I can't exactly tell) so it was the icing on the cake! Love. S.

This title is a reference to HAIM's album that I can't stop listening to, and it's been a favorite of mine for the past year. I discovered HAIM when they were djing at the H&M x Osheaga party last July, and their 80's vibe mixed with some R&B and a modern sound is just the bomb! This outfit makes me think a little bit about what the girls of this band wear: Leather jacket and super edgy outfits. I remember that during their gig at H&M, Estee (one of the sisters of the band) was wearing a super cool leather jacket over her shoulders, over a dress that had cut-outs on each sides, and it was a fantastic look. After that, I promised myself to get my hands on a jacket similar to this one, and yesss I got it;) Now I can have a super badass look on an everyday basis, and for this look I decided to accentuate it with my Castles Couture romper and a very special location. The rocks were actually bigger than me! Love. S.

I ordered the beef tartar to start the journey and it was delicious. I hadn't eaten a tartar in a long time so this one was pretty satisfying; it was a beef tartar with horseradish mayo, grainy mustard, capers and pickles. For the most important part of the meal, I ordered the "Chicken 'Red hot' Buffalo Blue Cheese Sauce". The waitress told me beforehand that the taste of the blue cheese was really present in this meal, so I had to like it, but I thought that on the contrary, it didn't not taste this much. It was really good anyways! I finished with a brioche bread as a side. At this point I was full, the portions were not that big, but they were very nourishing so it was perfect. For those who wants to know, my friend ordered the carrot ginger soup and the "goat cheese nuts crusted spice honey".
Overall the food is comfort food at its best, and the restaurant is very well located (in the heart of Griffintown), so I will definitely come back. I was also really excited with the decoration. All the plants, the white walls and tables, it was picture worthy!;) Love. S.
*Oh and there is also a take out option...

Summer holidays are here, but I am already thinking about organization for my work space and for the next school semester. I haven't been organized enough in the last few months and this lack of control really showed here on the blog, and at school. Now I am prepared to be on the top of my organization game. You Tube videos and blog posts really helped me acquire some tips and tricks to maintain a good organization, and today I will share with you the tips that I tested and approved (they work and I am still using them).

Print publications are such a nice thing to collect. It is sad to think that most publications will soon be only available on tablets, like Lucky Magazine. I've kept so many issues of great magazines, and I will continue to do so for a long time... For the past week, I've been on the hunt for the new Harper's Bazaar UK July issue, but I think it is not out yet. On the cover is the lovely Alexa Chung, my icon for the last 3-4 years. Too bad that this cover is only available for the subscribers because the picture is stunning, but I am sure that the one from the newsstand is just as pretty.
I like that for most things we are switching to numeric, or just using technology in general, but I feel that things like magazines and books should be kept in paper. The feeling of holding new paper or old paper with a story is one of the best, I would be really sad if it disappeared. I know that it is for ecological and practical but there is something so calming and romantic about holding a story in our hands.
What do you think about this whole print/numeric debate? Love. S.
