Welcome to Hollywood

Hello Darlings, Good and bad, there’s no place quite like Hollywood. And during Oscar weekend, I surely experienced my fair share of both!Starting with the bad, since it’s the ugly stereotype and also impressively terrible. Staying at a hotel at celebrity ground zero on Sunset Boulevard, almost directly across from where Vanity Fair hosts their Oscar after-party, one could expect a self-indulgent and raucous crowd.

California State of Mind

Hello Darlings, After an elimination process with at least dozen pairs of shoes,  I finally successfully packed for my ten day trip to sunny California then wintry British Columbia! No girl loves to play favorites with her shoes but even when packing for two seasons, there is no option but to bring only a few pair!

What Do Ladies Drink?

Hello Darlings, I enjoy the guilty pleasure of drinking yummy cocktails or wine at parties. While it’s socially acceptable, people definitely do pass judgement based on what they see you drinking – not to mention how much!! So with a few Oscar parties to attend this weekend in Hollywood, I thought to make my own little practical investigation on the topic: What Do Ladies Drink?

Near or Far: Quebec City

Hello Darlings, Near or far, a big part of enjoying a healthy and happy life is making time for the occasional weekend getaway! Whether it’s a spa day, a road trip, or a beach getaway doesn’t so much matter. The key is treating yourself once in a while, and last weekend was my own much needed winter getaway in beautiful and historic Quebec City.

Packing a Carry-On

Hello Darlings, As travel has progressively become a big part of my life, so have the hassles of packing. Recently, I finally embraced the benefits of travelling with only a carry-on bag, and without much whining have learned how to pack strategically. Asking a girl to compromise on a pair of shoes is as terrible as the thought of losing a cell phone! One word: terror!
