Jungle Feva’

_W7C5266 Los Angeles, California

TGIF my little chickens! I hope your week has been kind to you, and that the weekend has even sweeter things in store! As you may have noticed from my Instagram feed, the husband and I have just returned from Disney World where we celebrated our second wedding anniversary and had a magical time. No, it doesn’t get old. We are now on the last leg of our little vaca in Miami and have been consumed by our computer screens, so imma keep this one short so mama can hit up the beach and do vacationy things. Who am I kidding, spending the entire remnants of our trip on YouTube watching Jenna Marbles videos sounds like FACKING HEAVEN. Back to bidness, this little #OOTD was shot in LA in the jungle looking gardens of the Chateau Marmont, as we were heading out to Giorgio Baldi for dinner. We thoroughly took advantage of every opportunity we had to stuff our faces while visiting Lalaland before Coachella, and I think it’s about time we trigger your travel cravings and share our favourite food spots, with you don’t you think?…Who knows, maybe in a week’s time we will present you with a new #CCeats food guide for LA. This is all speculation of course, but you know…who knows? _W7C5308 _W7C5260 _W7C5303 _W7C5274 _W7C5271 _W7C5298 _W7C5315 _W7C5284 _W7C5294 _W7C5324 Flower stripe child

Open Festival Season

_W7C5630 Indio, California

The time has come my little chickens! Festival season is in full bloom and I’m here to bombard you with all of it’s wonder and magicalness. We had the lovely pleasure of attending Coachella once again this year, and it truly was a weekend to remember. From epic desert dusks to spotting every fairy featured supermodel I’ve ever dreamed of looking like, it was picturesque to say the least. Because the festival was in fact a three day long event, I will be sharing all three silly #OOTDs I pieced together for the eclectic occasion, and today marks numero uno.

Having knowingly rented a convertible for our time in California, I was partly thrilled and mortified to see my husband roll up in a banana yellow mustang to drive down to the desert. Several hours of sunburns, sandstorms and embarrassment later we finally arrived to the festival, and it was just like I remembered it, but overpopulated with famous people. Last year we attended the second weekend of Coachella, which I guess is less celebrity friendly, as this first weekend seemed to be some sort of convention for people that make me nervous. After spotting Aaron Paul, Daphne Groeneveld, and Zoe Kravitz during my first four minutes on the grounds, I became friendly with the margarita booth and my anxiety seem to subside rather quickly. Here’s the rule, don’t go up to them, and more importantly don’t later have FOMO for not going up to them. We lived by this all weekend long, and had a great time admiring these creatures in their natural habitat. Pretty sure Coachella is more LA than LA is.

I’m not sure if any of you know this, but I quite like food. In fact I booked this Coachella trip, while on day 6 of my 10 day Master Cleanse last year, simply to attend to a grilled cheese craving from one of the festival’s food trucks. When I bit into that sandwich, boy oh boy did I hear the hark angel sing. As for the music, well, we weren’t originally thrilled with the lineup this year, Guns’N’Roses excluded, but we discovered some new folks and danced to some known folks, that made us rethink our original apprehension. From girl grooving to Ellie Goulding, and having a total existential moment during M83, our first night was a Coachelluccess! Ya, let’s forget that “pun” happened. Highlight for me, aside from the grilled cheese, had to be the song I shared with you folks below…K, now go listen to it!

Sweet April Showers?

_W7C2541 Montreal, Canada

I hate writing these weather post, but really right now? I feel I have no choice but to acknowledge the chilly elephant in the room and bitch about mother nature. After spending the majority of 2016 in Miami, I was looking forward to finally spending time in our hometown. Can’t say I’m too pleased. How can I describe the current temperature? Wet shit maybe? Seriously, its rainy, its snowy, its slushy…its just plain old yucky if you ask me. Can you believe tourism is a thing here? I mean yes its beautiful architecture and yada yada yada, but Montreal ain’t no exotic land. We have literally not taken a second since we stepped of that plane in our homeland of Canada, and mama needs some vitamin D to keep going. Thankfully with Coachella around the corner, we will be leaving the tundra for the desert of Palm Springs, and I can promise that this time I will not be complaining about the heat! We have so much exciting news and posts to share with you, from new city food guide, to amazing collaborations, and I cannot wait to take you kids along for the ride! Until then let us gather together and perform some kind of anti-rain dance. Springtime, we are very fuckign ready for you. _W7C2437 _W7C2566 _W7C2506 _W7C2456 _W7C2472 _W7C2514 _W7C2500 _W7C2438 _W7C2588 _W7C2570 Still unsure about this mismatched greens situation

Ireland #TBT

_W7C6329 Ireland

Happy Saint-Patrick’s day everyone! May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, may good luck pursue you each morning and night…and beer, I wish you great beer. Today, being one of my favourite holidays, I thought what better way to celebrate then to share our adventures in the Emerald Isle itself. Last summer we had the great pleasure, of visiting Ireland to celebrate my 24th birthday, and it may have been one of our greatest trips yet. Our mothers in tow, we spent a week driving all around the island of Ireland from south to north, and saw sights (and pubs), experienced the culture (and pubs), and made memories that have a good chance of lasting a lifetime (except the ones we made in pubs). The luck of the Irish followed us from Dublin, to Belfast, and we truly had a magical time…and many pints of Guinness as well. Along the way we snapped a couple #OOTDs that remained unpublished until now. I thought what better time then to share them with you now, as well as a few pictures from our road trip to remember. Also on this special holiday I thought I’d leave you with a few words of wisdom… You can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning… _W7C5378 _W7C5399 _W7C5381 _W7C5491 _W7C5549 _W7C5512 _W7C5626 _W7C5643 _W7C5646 _W7C5719 _W7C5704 _W7C5837 _W7C6117 _W7C5990 _W7C6161 IMG_8308 _W7C6285 _W7C6270 _W7C6325 _W7C6278 IMG_8317 IMG_8286 _W7C6344 _W7C6369 _W7C6391 _W7C6396 _W7C6418 12304332_10153701812930450_763209895028578394_o IMG_8364 12307587_10153701813725450_5488783441244037941_o 12339085_10153701813135450_1902410547975918873_o IMG_8497 IMG_8508 _W7C6637 12339345_10153701814425450_7475745730929294825_o IMG_8554 _W7C6685 12322632_10153701815420450_689179082859015852_o 12291857_10153702835285450_7404177763287724744_o IMG_8578 They’re in order…you’ll figure it out…
