Evolution of Smooth

I have been a fan of EOS lip balms since they came out a few years ago. I remember going to the drugstore after school to buy one, and I used it all the time. Then I got Disney limited editions and other ones, so I built a small collection over time. My little sister also got a little collection of her own, so I can say that in my house we really like their products! That's why I was thrilled when I received this lip balm from their new collection Visibly Soft. 

Not only their balms are very nourishing, but they also smells like heaven. the one I received is the flavour Coconut Milk, and it's smells like I was on vacation. This lip balm is also 99% natural with a lot of benefits like vitamin C, so I guess my lips are in good hands for the rest of the winter. Have you tried the new EOS Visibly Soft lip balms? Love. S.

Gwyneth & Ralph and Russo

Just like the other day for the Grammys, I've decided to show you my favorite dress from the Oscars, and no surprise, it's pink again! This time, Gwyneth Paltrow is the lucky girl...I just love the huge flower (so Carrie Bradshaw), the baby pink color, and the one shoulder! After a little bit of research, I noticed that Gwyneth wears pink to most of the galas she attend, that's just awesome, and I love her even more!

I would totally wear that dress if I could, because it is elegant, sophisticated, and so girly! The dress is from Ralph & Russo, a British couture house that is known for Beyonce's costumes on her Mrs Carter tour... ok that is just so amazing! Love. S.

Café Parvis

So here is a place in Mtl that you definitely have to try... Café Parvis. Like most of the restaurants I try, I discovered it on Instagram, and I was immediately tempted. Their main speciality is their salads and pizzas, but they also have dishes like tartar, polenta, and much more (that I have to try for sure). Every plates is photogenic and the food is as fresh as summer. I also tried one of their fresh juices that was made with an asian pear and basilic! This restaurant is located downtown close to McGill station, and it offers a great healthy alternative. Oh and it looks really cute too, you will love it!

Doppelgänger

Growing up, I was sometimes compared to three actresses (that I love and admire, so believe me I took it as a compliment); Phoebe Tonkin, Leighton Meester, and Natalie Portman. I learned English through H2O, an Australian tv serie for kids, and Phoebe Tonkin was one of the main mermaids of the show. She was not my favorite at that time, but my friends kept comparing me to her and I just couldn't see it. One of my friends even told me that she was going to draw a portrait of me, but she actually just trace over one of Phoebe's pictures, and I didn't see the difference. A few years after came the Gossip Girl phenomenon. Blair was my favorite so I used to dress a bit like her, with bows in my hair and a very preppy style. So many people (still even today I receive some comments about that on my Instagram) told me that I looked just like Leighton Meester. Honestly, I think that we make very similar facial expressions, because you know, I loooved Blair Waldorf so much I just wanted to act like her.  And then, one or two years later, as we were receiving our school identification cards, my history teacher told me "You look like, you know, the girl in Black Swan?", and it literally made my day, Black Swan is a wonderful movie! Even two weeks ago, one of my friend told me that in her new Dior ad she looked just like me. So now Natalie Portman looked like me right?

After thinking about it for many years (it all started when I was in elementary school), having all those doppelgänger was totally flattering, but really influencing in some way. Having all those "icons" that look like you, but better and older, it is only natural for a young teenage girl that she has to do everything she can to look just like them. Now I take it as a compliment and I just find it funny, because those three women are more than inspiring, beautiful, and talented.

Do you have any doppelgänger? Love. S.

Read

Just before Christmas, I published a list of 6 books that I wanted to read during my Christmas break (The Man Repeller, Girl Online, How to Be a Parisian Wherever You Are, Humans of New York, Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde and Not That Kind of Girl), but I managed to read 3 of them. I can't say enough that books shape our thoughts and make us learn so many great things (plus this is also another way to learn words). Those three books made me think a lot about life and diverse subjects that can affect anybody. Since one of them is kind of like a memoir (Lena Dunham's book), it made me feel like I had a direct and very private access to her life. Reading is something I wish I had more time for, but for now I'm just suggesting that you read those three books, and I am sure you will learn a thousand things.

Two dreams I carry since I am young is to be part (or create why not) a reading club, or write my own book... Love S.

Denim

Let me introduce you to my favorite pair of denim I own. To be honest, it took me sooo long to find a distressed pair that I liked. Since summer 2013 I'm desperately trying to find an awesome pair of boyfriend jeans, but so far my quest has been in vain. Those, that are from Zara, are the ones that are closer to the look I'm looking for. The color is a perfect baby blue, so stunning when paired with light pink or even a white or black top!

The only thing that bugs me is that the distressed parts are falling apart, but I guess it gives some edge to my look;)

Pretty in Pink

There was not a lot of dresses that caught my eye on the red carpet this year at the Grammys, but Rihanna's dress was perfect. She was wearing Giambattista Valli and stole the show on the red carpet (in my opinion).  I just love the glow that she has with that pink colored dress. Honestly, it made me want to wear pink... so today I'm wearing a pink sweater;)

No one really stood out on the dress side except her, what did you think of the red carpet last night?
