…Discovering up North…

It never ceases to amaze me how large Canada is and how little of it I have discovered since moving here 15 years ago. I know many people, including myself would love to explore this big and beautiful country of ours, but unfortunately reality doesn’t always allow us. Many of us don’t have enough vacation …

…The Fashion Hunt…

“Hi my name is Mamy and I am a shopoholic”! I should probably locate a shopaholic anonymous group and join their program as soon as possible. I honestly think I have a problem when it comes to shopping. I guess the more accurate statement is I have limited amount of restrains and if it was …

….Summer Strolls…

Last weekend I randomly ended up on Laval St. in Gatineau. I was on my way home after this event and I remembered wanting to check out this umbrella exhibition I keep seeing on Instagram. I never do anything in Gatineau even though I live there. Ottawa is divided into two provinces but I work …

About two weeks ago I ended up helping my friend Jen Bernard who is a photographer. She usually works on wedding pictures and other styles. Right now she wants to focus more on portraits. She just built a studio at her house and it was nice to see how a photoshoot worked behind the scenes. …

…A la recherche of a New Spot…

The other night I went to a nice restaurant that I had never been to before. Lately, I’ve been making an effort to avoid my typical dinner spots. There are so many nice restaurants in the city and I tend to keep going to the same ones and ordering the same things- How boring! I …

Yesterday I went out to grab something to eat with my one and only Brunch Queen! I swear this girl knows all the best places to have brunch in this city and it’s been fun discovery all these cool spots with her on the weekends. I’ve been sick for a few days, so I was …

…My very own Kelly Moore Bag…

I am in love with taking pictures; photography has become my new favourite hobby. Of course after shopping but then again photography is free so maybe this is a better option haha. Unfortunately, we’ve had such an AWFUL winter this year so I had no desire to walk around outside and take pictures. I also …

…House of Targ…

Last year, I joined a really cool blog called Apt 613. It is a blog that is dedicated to uncovering the best of Ottawa’s arts and culture. They give people the opportunity to contribute by writing about various events happening in the city. This year they started 613TV, which have mini web series called the …
