Fancy Some Pink Bubbly?

Feb 27, 2012

If you are in the mood for something light, sweet, pink and effervescent, you will enjoy what I have discovered today: Chantepom.

This lovely non-alcoholic beverage is in fact a sparkling apple and cranberry must made from freshly picked apples on the Lamarche Orchard in St-Joseph-du-Lac, Québec. It's seriously delicious, festive and affordable ($5.99).

At my next dinner party, I will definitively offer it to my friends who choose not to drink. And I might also indulge in a nice glass of bubbly next time I take a long bubble bath.

You could also add some sliced strawberries to make it even more sweet and pretty. Try it, you might like it too!

Cheers everyone!

Statement Necklace

Feb 26, 2012

 This year, my New Year's resolution is fashion-oriented: to focus on accessories (jewelry, scarves belts, bags AND shoes) and find key pieces to compliment my wardrobe.

So to kick-start 2012 with elegance, I have added a bold and beautiful statement necklace from Stella and Dot to my collection, the Isadora pearl bib. I love the soft blend of grays as well as the sparkle effect created by the combination of pearls, the hematite chain and the faceted glass beads.

Stella and Dot is featured among the 500 fastest growing companies in the USA and is praised for its innovative business model as well as its irresistible style. In fact, you can purchase their jewelry directly on their website or by attending a trunk show organized by one of their affiliated stylists.

I am eager for them to ship to Quebec but until then, I will be doing all my shopping with the help of my friends in the States...

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!
