Montreal Victoria Weened

I spent about a week planning things to do in Montreal for this past Vicroria Day long weekend, and of my list we probably did 3 things, and even those were the most unplanned plans I have ever done on a vacation. I am not someone who is spontaneous on a holiday, getting lost is not fun to me :) I am used to the Chevy Chase vacations that my dad used to take us on where we would be going from one attraction to another. Vegas to the Grand Canyon to Hoover Dam to Meteor Crator to Death Valley...all in a couple days. That is what I'm used to, but trips are about compromise in what you are going to do.
Here is a photo montage of my time in Montreal :)
I managed to forget my camera in the hotelroom for most of the first day, but definitely made sure I had it the second day.

My day started out with breakfast and coffee at a quaint little eattery called Ben and Florentine:

I just finished a 3 day upholstery workshop and it was amazing! I learn so much in those 3 days that I am planning on taking the whole 7 level course.





All I need to do now is refinish the arms and screw them back on! It is going to look amazing!

Shopping State Side

My excuse for a girls road and shopping trip turned into a 12 hour shopping marathon! My friend and I spend about 9 hours at the Carousel Mall in Syracuse. Yesterday was the first day that I bought a dress I wasn't completely enamoured with. Usually I only buy pieces that I love at first site on myself, but yesterday I broke my rule. I wore my new dress to work today, and got a few compliments, but am still not sure about it. I will post that one seen :)



I fell for this ring the moment I saw it! It reminds me of a pattern you would see in a church on the confession booths. Very ornate and gothic.


I bought this as a kick-around dress for the summer. It will be cool and comfy for those really hot summer days that we always get.


I liked the pattern on this dress, but it was made of polyester and wouldn't stop clinging to my legs. Sorry about the blur, it looked clear on my little camera screen!

Ring: Forever 21; Red dress: H&M; black dress: H&M

Road Trip!

Off to Syracuse with my girlfriend to get our brides maid dresses fitted. What a perfect excuse for a girl's shopping trip! I will hopefully have some changingroom outfit shots for you when I get back :)

I thought this watch by Haurex was really interesting. I have never seen one where the dial and face are off-centre. It looks like a beautiful mistake.
