ode to sweets :)

Last night, went to a friends place and because we didn't know what to have for dinner, we settled on popcorn, nachos and chocolate. A nice, balanced dinner!

Here is my ode to all that is bad for your insides, yet great for your taste buds

Goodbye Lil Peanut

Last night, after getting home from work, my baby girl Mika passed away in my lap. I miss her terribly, though I am happy to know she is running in green fields eating all the almonds, bananas and avocados she can!

Let's recap a beautiful photoshoot I did with her.

I miss you xoxo

Fall 2010: the perfect sweater is fall and to those of us who love fashion, it is the best time of year! My main challenge of course is resisting all these temptations that we call clothing. I particularly have a weakness for sweaters and can always seem to justify purchasing these, especially thinking ahead to the chilling winters in Montréal.

I was browsing online, and in the stores and came across a few items in which I would love to add to my own closet. My favourite sweaters happen to be the ones with the cool, retro designs, and I am absolutely loving the animal knits.

Enjoy some of my finds :)

wilfried van winden

Check out this unbelievable hotel which literally appears as a stack of houses. This can be found in Zaandam, the Netherlands.  I would love to see what the inside looks like. Not yet ready, but opening this fall. Check out more about WAM architecture at

sunday morning walk around

The past weekend was a sidewalk event on St Laurent between Sherbrooke and Mont Royal. My friend and I decided to take a walk down the street, through Chinatown to Old Montreal and then back up for a drink on a terrace. The weather was perfect, maybe a touch too hot, but otherwise a great day to be walking and shooting (and eating ice cream which of course we did!)

Here are a few images I happened to snap and a couple I played with to add a certain je ne sais pas!

Notre Dame 2

Hotel Place d'Armes

I also brought my analog camera with some lomography film. Of course, it will take time for me to both finish the roll, and get it developed. Those images will make an appearance later on :)
