INTRO

INTRO

Intro

My outfits come from a huge variety of stores. From the very high-end stores to things being sold on the streets. I get some of my clothes from places where people wouldn’t generally shop for clothing. Oh, and I can’t forget about the online shopping! … I absolutely  love online shopping. The Intro outfit is an outfit that can be worn to a ladies’ night, out on a date, or even to the movies.

MONTREAL MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS

MUSEEE DES BEAUX-ARTS DE MONTREAL
MONTREAL MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS
1380 Sherbrooke Street West

I had another opportunity to visit Montreal this weekend, and this time I can share with you all my experience. Every time I visit a big city I like learning more about the place. One of the ways I do that is by visiting popular spots. On Friday, most of my day was spent at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
I saw spectacular exhibitions but nothing was more breathtaking to me than the Jean Paul Gaultier Love is Love exhibition displaying haute couture wedding dresses inspired by different ethnicities. How obvious that my favorite exhibition has to do with fashion! In a museum full of art fashion was my highlight. Well fashion is also another form art… If you are in downtown Montreal don’t miss this exhibition before it’s gone.

LAVELLE TORONTO

I have promised my readers more posts from Lisbon. But since I have been back home for a while I wanted to give my readers a break from my Portugal trip and updated you all on some of the things I have been doing lately.
I enjoy discovering new places in the summer, and today was no different. Lavelle is a luxurious restaurant, with a lounge area, pool and an outdoor bar roof top. Sitting 16 stories high Lavelle has one of the best views of the escarpments and the famous CN Tower due to the great location. What do I like about this place? Well first of all I enjoy patient and friendly service. The workers really make an effort in giving customers the full Lavelle experience by being very informative and suiting your needs specially regarding reservations.
Taste some of the most refined cosine by famous chef Romain Avril and don’t forget to make reservations way ahead in advance because this place is always packed specially in the summer. Come picture ready and don’t forget to take that Instagram perfect shot.

For more information pleased check out Lavelle’s website at http://chezlavelle.com/

Cascais – Lisbon, Portugal

Within approximately 31km away from Lisbon you will find this old and new style homes municipal called Cascais. A very prestigious area full of beautiful historical sculptures, amazing restaurants, shops, the Cascais Shopping and of course the breath taking Cascais beach.
A lot of the rich and famous live in Cascais. Many influential people in  Portugal prefer this quiet area to live and relax, over downtown Lisbon.
Portugal’s constructions are a mix of modern and ancient infrastructures. The beautiful colors of Cascais are very captivating for locals and even more for tourists because at times gives you the sense of being in an older historic town with a modern twist.
Although my main reason to come to Portugal was for the gastronomy, I was too busy eating and forgot to document majority of the food. My next post I will talk about the amazing places I have eaten at and some more site seeing I did while I was there.

The Hype Of Freeport Lisbon Fashion Outlet

LOCATION :
Avenida Euro 2004, 2890-154
Alcochete, Portugal



I know its hard to believe but shopping is the least of my concerns when travelling. There are only two places so far that I go crazy for shopping: US and Canada.
If I end up going shopping while on vacation I end up going to a very hyped mall or an outlet in that region usually highly recommended by other tourists and locals. So that’s how I ended up in Freeport Outlet.
If I buy something while I am away it has to be something special that I would have a hard time finding in Canada.
Although many people told me about Freeport and the great shopping experience I just couldn’t feel the same. I spent most of the time sitting down because I was tired of the long walks due to the structure of the outlet.
I ended up leaving with a full belly since lunch ended up being at a very delicious restaurant in the food court.
Perhaps I went at a time that didn’t have a lot of the latest fashion I tend to gravitate towards. If you are visiting Portugal and end in this area check out the Freeport Outlet to have your own opinion of this hyped outlet.

Lisbon At Night

Is this my first night post?
I believe so. Most of my posts have been during the day since pictures tend to look nicer with good lighting.
How do I come up with my outfits ideas?
Well I get this question all the time and people always tell me that I come up with different and cool combinations.
Since I love fashion so much, I have fashion on my mind all the time. I guess just as a musician has a song in mind, or like an artist is always thinking of the next sketch, or as a soccer player is always thinking about the next move and as a chef is always thinking about the next recipe. The same happens to me, I am always thinking of my next outfit.
I start with a nice pair of shoes. Many people start with buying the clothes first but I work my outfit around the shoes. So I buy the shoes first for motivation for putting the outfit together. These Zara heels inspired me to create this night look or “boss lady night look” but I can also come up with an office look based on this heels.

So Lets talk about Lisbon night life!

We can’t talk about Lisbon’s night life without mentioning the party scene where everything happens, Bairro Alto. This part of Lisbon is full of restaurants, bars and clubs. Most people in Lisbon have dinner at 8:00PM pushing for the party scene to start very later.
It is very common in areas such as Bairro Alto, Alfama where you can hear the traditional music of Lisbon – Fado, and Cais do Sodre to find locals and tourists having alcoholic drinks in the middle of the streets without being interrupted by the police. Giving the impression of how people in Lisbon are very relaxed and care free.

I have dreamed of coming to Lisbon, Portugal since I was a very young girl.
Besides the amazing company, the food is what brings me to Lisbon, Portugal. Portuguese food out of all ethnic foods is the best in my opinion.
I will be uploading a post specifically to talk about the delicious gastronomy I have been tasting since I have been here.

Praca do Comercio
Commerce Square

If Lisbon was New York City then Praca do Comercio would be Times Square. This square of the city is a very popular destination for tourists that come to Lisbon. The famous Santa Justa Elevator, a variety of shops, street entertainers and a wide range of restaurants with authentic Portuguese dishes makes Praca do Comercio the place to be.

I thought that this man was a real statue

With spring on it’s way, and believe me its on its way! This is a great time to shop for the end of the season sale. I bought all my items on sale. This whole look is under $100. Please check the stores above for similar styles because when items are on sale sometimes they vanish from stores.

Unfortunately this year the “Do Not Touch” signs were more present. I had the feeling that last year people could go inside of more cars, get the feeling that you own it and get a picture taken.

Walking away from these prices like…

This year’s show was from Friday, February 17 until Sunday, February 26. Although the convection center was strictly focused on the car show, many people wonder what more is there to do in the building?
After the car show, me and my amazing partners in crime decided to go for dinner at the Azure Restaurant inside of the Inter Continental Toronto Center hotel also locate inside of the same building. What an amazing meal we all had!
The hotel is very clean, luxurious, unique design and topped up with excellent service.
