I don't know how the weather is where you are but here in Montreal winters are harsh. By the time March comes around it is TIME for spring to show up! While the weather have been milder in the last few weeks it is nowhere near skirt season yet. So here I am, pretending.

My sweater is thrifted. I bought it in my hometown thrift shop and it's originally from Walmart's brand George. Obviously it's nothing "prestigious" but it actually feel like it's pretty good quality.

The skirt is from Renaissance and I'm not sure what the original brand is. I had been looking for a skirt like this for a while and I was so happy when I found this. I've been seeing this type of skirt all over Instagram last summer and I'm assuming (and crossing my fingers) that it will still be in style this summer. The only things missing from it is cooler buttons. Right now they are the same red as the skirt but I'd like them to stand out a little. Maybe I'll change them to turtleshell button if I can any that'll look good with it. Also, it has pockets! Always a plus!

My boots are from Walmart. They're not the best but I really needed some mid-season boots and did not have much money to spend (and didn't have luck at the thrift stores).

I hope you've enjoyed the outfit and sorry for the mess and the box of litter in the background 🤷‍♀️










Hi again! I'm back with an other dress your tech post.

I have a new set of 10 phone wallpaper for you. This time, it’s all bird view style sceneries.

Photos are from Pexel, quotes are from around the web.

Send me a screenshot of your phone if you end up using one of those. I hope you'll enjoy them!












Hey there! I'm back with an other video. I'm definitely still learning (hello bad lighting!) but this time around the editing was way smoother.

I hope you'll enjoy the video!




I love cocktails. I love drinking them (in moderation), I love to look at recipes and I do, to an extend, enjoy making them. What I mean by that last statement is that i do enjoy mixing a simple cocktail but when it gets too complicated I tend to get lazy. Anyone else? I guess it’s not just cocktails but also recipes in general. I hate finding a really tasty looking cocktail recipe and then looking at the ingredients only to realize I would need to buy 3 different liquors to be able to recreate it. And my mini bar is pretty well stocked, I think. And it gets expensive, too.

That’s why when I decided to work on a cocktail recipe for this post I wanted to do something really simple. Something that would not involve a fancy simple syrup that I would need to make the night before and that would only include one type of alcohol.

Gin’s my fav so I decided to go with the classic Gin Tonic and add a simple twist to it. You’ll see, it’s super simple.


Ingredients:
  • 3 sprigs of cilantro
  • 2 inch piece English cucumber thinly sliced
  • 2 ounces gin 
  • Tonic water 

Instructions:
  1. Place the cucumber and cilantro at the bottom of your glass. 
  2. Muddle with a muddling stick or the handle of a wooden spoon. Fill your glass with ice. 
  3. Pour gin over ice, top off glass with tonic and stir.


Don’t forget to leave your feedback on it below and tag me on Instagram if you make the drinks!


I bet that just like me you've heard about audible for a long time and though more than once about subscribing. But subscriptions are adding up and at the time (having only 1 and a half revenue for the both of us) I wasn't ready to pay the price.

I don't exactly remember how, but I found out I could get (almost) as much audiobooks as I wanted for no fee at all. Yes, completely free. When you think about it, it makes sense, because it's a library subscription. Obviously you don't own your books, which is fine by me, since most of the books I've been reading I'll probably won't read again anyway.

How does it work? I subscribed to the BANQ, Bibliotheque et Archives National du Québec and downloaded the Overdrive app. I know lots of other library do offer the same service, so if you don't live in Quebec you'll probably have a little research to do (you can also search directly in the app).

It work like you traditional library would. You have a number of days to read the book and to return it, but you don't have to drive there, just click a button. For the new and most popular books you'll have a wait list, but in my experience I barely ever waited longer than a week to have access to a book (except for the Harry Potter books, these are taking forever). You'll also see how many people are ahead of you.

I think it's a great option if you, like me, are on a budget. Sure, you won't always get the book you want when you want it. And you don't own the book either. But on the other hand, it's free, and that's what I'm all about.

With physical books, I'm an extremely slow reader. I will actually forget I'm reading a book and go weeks without touching it. In a normal year I might ready 2 to 5 books. That's not a lot. How many books would you guess I've read last year? Over 30 books.

Here are some of them :
Dark Matter by Blake Croush
The Girl Before by Marie Rutkoski
The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
Harry Potter books 1 and 2 by J. K. Rolling
Yes, Please by Amy Poehler
Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

The app history doesn't go further back because I changed phone 🤷‍♀️

I hope I helped some of you with this post and happy listening!
If you're following me on Instagram you've probably seen many photos of our new apartment. I say new, but we've moved in July so I guess it's not that new anymore... My favorite room, and the one I post the most photos of, is definitely the living room.

One disclaimer before I get any further in this post: As you'll see in some photos my place is kinda messy. I know I have a lot of stuff and I definitely need to KonMari my place a little but I've been wanting to do that type of room tour post for years (even in previous apartments) but keep pushing back because it never looks perfect enough, never tidy enough or whatever. No more. This is how my place looks. I love my apartment. It's not perfect, I still have to work on it but that's okay.

The building dates from the 1930's and there's a lot of original features: the floors, the moldings, the wooden doors and door frames... I love all of it!

I still haven't decorated much. So far there's frames above the TV and the one in the stairs (not so sure of that one). All the other walls are bare but I kind like it, to me it looks very clear and minimal. I'm planning to add a little more, but I definitely won't go crazy with it. The one place I feel is really missing something is the wall above the couch but I still don't know what it needs.

I'll try to do some updates when I finally install the shelves next to the window or when I find something to go above the couch. Talking of that wall, do you have any ideas? I'm a bit lost to be honest, I have no idea what to do with it...






















Sooooo... I recorded a video and posted it on YouTube.

*Don't know what else to say*

*Too anxious to think of anything*

...

ugh... Here it is! Watch it and don't leave mean comments?
