I’ve been on the travel mode again. A friend couple and us drove down to Toronto. It was my first time touring North America’s fourth largest city – only Mexico city, NYC and LA beat Toronto in size.
Toronto has many similarities with New York. Yonge Street compares to Fifth Avenue, Dundas Square made me think of Times Square. They had a hefty Forever 21 just opposite another shopping hot spot the Eaton Center. Toronto has a lot happening construction wise. Sky scrapers are being built. That’s a sign of a city going forward. I grabbed a cup of Starbucks and walked around, marveling at all the snazzy graffiti. Big city inspires me to push my fashion experiments. I took home extra energy to walk down my daily catwalk – when catching my transportation off to work.

I got to see Niagara Falls a while back. Boy, was it chilly. Fashionistas have to adapt to the weather constraints. With funky accessories and juicy colors you can do a lot, even if you’d have to sport a winter jacket in the middle of spring.
Niagara Falls do look better from the Canadian side. All that water rushing down is quite impressive. I like when nature makes me feel small. It’s a healthy feeling, I find.

Now that all the glam people are crowding the French Riviera, we girls have to have our party, too. Here’s a look at my visit to Cannes a few years ago. The city is quite small. We strolled at the seaside where the festival venue is located. I also remember a gigantic seafood salad across the street from the center.
I had a cocktail party to go to. So LA red lips it was. Los Angeles is a place where people dare, and I dare, too. I love bling-blingy accessories. I need to be noticed by what I wear.

I decided that it was about time ‘Fashion Night Out’ come to Quebec City, Canada, too. So I invited my best friends over for a soiree of wine, food and trend talk. We discovered our unique color maps and had passionate discussions about style and life. Enjoy the pics. Next glamour evening will be soon. Will you join us?
We al have our key words. The ones that we bounce around the most often in our talks with friends and such. You know, the word cloud that you can see in the side bar of this blog. The key words of our lives define us, and they also change throughout time. When you get a grip on your key words, you can gain precious information about being the unique you.
So what are my key words? I’ll try and list up some sweet things that make my heart throb… New York, pink (duh!), Starbucks, dark chocolate, red wine, champagne, latino music, coffee shops, deep discussions and Jesus. These all coexist in unorganized harmony.
I need New York in my life because it symbolizes a place for dreaming. I need pink because it boosts me and lets my soul free – to be who I really am inside. I affectionate Starbucks since I love the concept of it. When I used to browse Paris, on those solitary walks I’d pop in a Starbucks and get a cup of American sweetness. When at the beginning I had tough times here in Quebec City, I’d rejoice over the proximity of a Starbucks. I’d dress pretty and make a trip over there, journaling in my magazine and gathering my strength to make it one day farther.
I felt chipper participating the Quebec City Fashion Sale. The cruise ship terminal at the water front hosted clothing lines and accessory carriers most of whose goodies are made locally.
I found some snazzy earrings from Euphony. They have a store on Saint Jean Street downtown – now I’ll have to go check it out, too.
I really wanted to treat myself to this sequined little mini-skirt-of-a-number by Signatures Quebecoises. They just didn’t have my size.
I loved this cute booth by Kollontai.
