Hello there 2018

Hello 2018!

It may sound cliche to celebrate the “new year, new me” mentality and while I can agree that it can be a bit of a scapegoat, I am so excited for this new year and what I’m working towards in it! I’m so excited to say Hello 2018!

2017 wasn’t a bad year, but it wasn’t amazing and that’s what I plan on making this year! I want to really work on myself, on making positive changes and working towards my own future.

Parma Café Now has Brunch!

So, I love brunch. Totally unashamed to admit that I am that basic on Saturday morning who already knows where she’s going for brunch and has the snaps ready to go. Guilty and unashamed. Well, it’s also no secret that I LOVE Parma Café. So imagine my excitement when I was invited to their media event to taste their new brunch menu!

 

Honestly, I say this about most things at Parma but, everything way so delicious!! The bagel sandwiches were perfectly made, fresh and didn’t fall apart the second you bit into them. 

The lattes were delicious, but that’s just a given at Parma. 

The Parma Grilled Cheese is made with smoked cheese and is out of this world. Honestly one of the best grilled cheeses I’ve had at a restaurant, I just had them take out the tomato cause I’m really not a fan. 

Their Parma Breakfast sandwich was so well made with fresh ciabatta buns and a perfectly cooked egg. 

Their croissants and chocolatine were so fresh and soft, I had to stop myself from bringing a dozen home with me. I can confidently say they were some of the best breakfast pastries I’ve had in Montreal.

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.

Le Fix Bar Opening

I had the pleasure of attending a media event for the opening of Le Fix Bar, the first blow-dry and beauty bar to open in the West Island. Anyone who knows me knows that I rarely venture out of the downtown area often. I can’t even remember the last time I went out to the West Island for anything other than visiting family. This event had me leaving the comfort of my downtown solitude, in style of course, and heading out west.

The night started out at Juicyyy Lab in St Henri where we were served delicious watermelon juice and gin creations. After some mingling, all the guests were then chauffeured to DDO to Le Fix Bar  by limo; just a casual Thursday!

Walking in to Le Fix is like waking in to a glamorous girls only club. It’s filled with stations where you can get your hair blown out and styled by one of the many talented hair stylists and then head over to the nail stations where you can get your nails done with gel, shellac, or regular nail polish. They were offering pedicures, manicures and some delicious snacks from L’Gros Luxe. Also featured in Le Fix Bar was the new, second location of Juicyyy Lab, serving more delicious, signature drinks. They definitely get 5 stars for both taste and presentation!

This night was a fashion girls playground. Everywhere you looked there was someone getting their hair done, nails done, a massage or just enjoying the delicious, and instagram worthy, treats. I myself got my hair blown out and it looked fabulous! I am so lazy when it comes to my hair so it felt so nice to have someone wash and style it and it felt even better once I saw the outcome! I am SO picky when it comes to my hair and the stylist I had styled it exactly as I asked.

I recently took a break from gel manicures, my nails were in terrible need of a breather, so I was a little afraid that they wouldn’t have many options available for regular nail polish. Luckily for me they had a variety of different colours, including a pretty light pink colour that I chose to go with!

After everyone was sufficiently glammed up, the limos arrived whisking everyone back downtown. The party continued at Somwhr Liquor Lounge in the Old Port. The bottles flowed and the music blared and the night ended on the same party note that it started on.

Feel It On The First – Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Alright ladies, listen up!! We all know how much cancer sucks. It takes the people that we love, it ruins lives and families, it’s terrible. And since October is #breastcancerawareness month, we’re going to do just that and raise some awareness!

Now I’ve been lucky enough to have never been affected directly by breast cancer. The women in my family have never had it and no one close to me has either. I also however, have never done a self examination on myself. Ever. As I write this I am embarrassed to admit that at 24 years old I’ve yet to take the time to exam my own body. Well today, all of that changed.

Sunday Delights

This weekend I was lucky enough to attend a popup shop suitably named Sunday Delights. A delight it was! Between the open, airy space and all the young entrepreneurs there promoting their brands and showcasing their work, it was an excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

It was so refreshing to see all of these young women representing themselves and their work so proudly! After attending the TedxMontrealWomen conference on Saturday (absolutely inspiring and there is a post coming on that soon!) it was amazing to see all of these young women band together and arrange a day to help promote and support each other! Every vendor there was encouraging the guests to visit each table and all the ladies had only positive things to say about everyone showcasing there. It was the perfect girly afternoon!

50 Things About Moi

A friend of mine did a post like this on her blog and it inspired me to do the same. I can say now that finding 50 things about me to speak about was not easy. I do find myself pretty interesting but fifty fun facts is a lot. Here they are in no particular order!

1 – I consider pizza to be it’s own food group and could live off of it happily.

2 – I am an avid reader and have trouble understanding people who don’t enjoy reading.

3 – The Harry Potter book series is a HUGE part of my life and shaped my childhood. They are my biggest obsession.

4 – I get bored very easily.

5 – I love bright colours and patterns yet always end up wearing dark colours and neutrals.

The Perks and Pitfalls of Interning

Since graduating from fashion marketing last spring I have interned at two separate public relations companies. The great thing about interning is that generally you do not have a specific position so you’re able to be hands on with different projects and help out in all different fields. The job that you’re doing tends to be less in depth than it would be if you were an actual employee, but you still get to have a taste for the field that you plan to be working in. Interning with a company lets you act as a fly on the wall. You’re able to see everything that goes on, you get first hand experience as to how the field really is and you can gain valuable knowledge for when you are actually working in that field. Generally speaking, your internship will be one of your first “real” jobs after finishing school.
