Boss Quotes for my Boss Ladies

Some of you may not know this about me but I am ALL about female empowerment. I really cannot think of something more beautiful than women supporting other women. I love reading a memoir where they’re talking about the women who have inspired them or the women who helped them out along the way. And sometimes, we just don’t feel all that powerful or boss-like. We feel like everything is against us and we just don’t want to leave our bed. It happens. So for those days, remember these boss quotes and kick that days ass.

Summer Bucket List

I love the idea of a bucket list, but it’s something that I’ve never put much thought into. Sure, I’ve made a list of things I want to try out and places I want to see but that’s for my entire life. Recently, I had a friend post about how they make a summer bucket list every year and I thought it was such an interesting idea!

AFA Reading List – July Edition

I know that I already posted about the books I want to read this summer but it’s barely July and I’ve already read all of those books! I’m so big on reading and it really is an amazing way to meet/connect with people! You can learn so much from someone from their taste in books. So, since my “summer reading list” barely made it to summer, I’ve decided to make this something I do on a monthly basis, my own AFA Reading List!

Sometimes it will be books that I need to read, sometimes I’ll include books I’ve read that I really suggest others read and why. I just think that reading for pleasure is something that is so easily overlooked and it really is a great way to bond with others. I mean, there are few better feelings than suggesting a book you love to someone who in turn loves that book and then you get to talk about why you both love it!

So, without any further babbling, here is my July reading list!

A Fashionable Approach – A Lifestyle Blog

Well hello there,

I would like to officially introduce myself to everyone. My name is Krystal and I am the one behind the scenes at A Fashionable Approach. Since starting AFA, I’ve been a bit all over the place with my posts and really inconsistent. I’ve realized that just because fashion is in the title, doesn’t mean that it needs to be geared towards only fashion. Which is why I decided to relaunch myself as a lifestyle blog.

Terrasses Bonsecours Grand Opening

I have to believe that the sun came out in full force last Thursday just for the partygoers at Terrasses Bonsecours. It was the hottest day we have had yet, it was the sunniest day that we have had yet and it was was the perfect way to kick off terrace season.
Drinks were flowing, appetizers were being served and the sun was shining down HARD. Upon arrival I asked if I could be seated somewhere more in the shade and the look the hostesses gave me was hilarious. I am a pale ghost by nature and I believe in protecting my skin from the sun at all costs; I’m that pale girl who wears sunscreen daily, invests in hats and tries to stay out of the sun during peak hours. Guilty.

Summer Reading List

Now that I am finally on vacation and don’t have mandatory readings or papers due weekly, I can finally get bucket reading for the enjoyment of i rather than for a grade. I am an avid reader and love nothing more than starting a book only to realize that several hours have passed and that I have been lost in a fictional world.

I love biographies, memoirs, true crime stories, novels – I love them all! The beginning of summer is generally the time I use to catch up on all of the books that I have been adding to my “must read” list that I keep stored on my phone (it is never-ending and only gets bigger, despite the amount of books I keep crossing off of it).

Biscuits and Confetti

Last weekend I had the pleasure of trying out Biscuits and Confetti. For anyone who hasn’t visited yet, Biscuits and Confetti is a kid-friendly cafe/creative space located on Sherbrooke Street in NDG. Anyone who knows me knows that I am more likely to end up somewhere adult-only than kid-friendly, so I was a bit skeptical when trying this place.

Bring on the cheese, please!

I know that I’ve already talked about one of my favourite go to cheese places, Mlt Down, in a previous post – but I had to give them some more attention. They’ve recently started serving burgers and I promise you, they are not to be missed!

I’m not the biggest burger enthusiast, so I really wasn’t expecting to be that impressed. I rarely order burgers when out at restaurants and it’s even rarer that I actually enjoy them. When I received the invite to test their burgers, I was somewhat excited because I know that these guys only produce quality items but I was still a bit skeptical as to whether or not I’d really enjoy it.
