W Scottsdale: Perfect Girls Getaway

Hello Darlings, At the first sight of snow the suitcases were packed and we were on our merry way seeking sunshine. After a direct 5 hour flight with WestJet we landed in Phoenix airport where the sun was shinning and the car was awaiting for us. After a 15 minute drive, we were at the beautiful W Scottsdale — our home for the next 4 days. With a vibrant art scene, fabulous golf courses and magnificent resorts Scottsdale was described by New York Times as a “desert version of Miami’s South Beach.” And rightfully so! It is no wonder that within the…

Montreal: Cirque du Soleil Kurios

Hello Darlings, What’s a better way to spend a Friday evening if not over delightful food and the magic of entertainment. Now that calls for a great weekend! On a calm Friday evening back in Montreal while FrancoFolies de Montréal festival was taking place, I had the pleasure of enjoying the delightful meal at the trendy Taverne F in Quartier des Spectacles.

Cirque du Soleil – Zumanity

Hello Darlings, Las Vegas has always been a city of extremes! Unlike any other city, this one can deliver on all types of fun even for the most demanding types. Whatever your little heart desires can be found in the Sin City! On first night of the trip, I was looking forward to seeing a Cirque du Soleil show and after a little research I decided on Zumanity. It is not a typical show but one that depicts the sensual side of Cirque du Soleil and features risque subject matter. It is sexy! This mature audience (18+) show explores human sexuality…

Dressed by DUY

Hello Darlings, every so often a girl needs a “Cinderella night” — an evening where she gets dolled up for a fabulous night out with her prince charming. The event doesn’t so much matter as does the ritual of getting herself ready, since the effort and attention to detail that goes into planning that perfect night is often what creates the most lasting memories!
