Happy Friday everyone! Hope you are having a great beginning of January and most importantly, I hope you are staying warm.
For those of you who have recently started following Pearls & Caramel and for the others who are curious to revisit some important milestones of my blog, I thought I'd share with you last year's most popular posts.
2014 was a year full of delightful surprises and great encounters.
I had the honour of meeting Lubov Azria, the talented BCBG designer during a private dinner to celebrate the brand's 25th anniversary.
I took part of the #Jelefais campaign to raise awareness for breast cancer.
I had the chance to take my first helicopter ride thanks to Bombay Sapphire.

I was invited by Tiffany's to discover their latest T collection months before the official launch.
I noticed a surprise wedding at the 25th-anniversary bash of MARIAGE Québec .
I was so pleased to attend the Montreal vernissage of one of my favourite artists, the colourful Britto.
I got to wear a bright red nose in public at the Nez pour vivre event.
I celebrated the first edition of the soirées FashiOmnistas at the Hotel Omni Mont-Royal.
I was intrigued to try Madonna's luxurious face treatment at Dermapure
I attended the lavish Bow Tie Affair organised by Experience Old Montreal to support the cause against prostate cancer.
I did a fun photoshoot with New Social Class and another one to showcase a chic little black dress from the ELLE by RW&Co collection.
I was invited at the first Gala Relève Mode at Collège Lasalle where I met a lovely 15-year-old girl who created the "Sugar dress" with tiny pastel macarons.
During a Neutrogena event at Habitat 67, I saw a fantastic soap replica of the iconic housing complex built by Moshe Safdie.
I discovered the new Birks Bee Chic collection at their garden party.
I went to the Oysterfest for the first time and it was so much fun!
I put together a chalet chic table decor with chic holiday ornaments from Rona.
I was invited at the opening of Leonce et Lena, the satirical political comedy by Les Grands Ballets.
I channeled my inner Parisian at the Cocktail à la Parisienne hosted by Holt Renfrew and Maison Ogilvy.
I celebrated the 10th anniversary of Jouviance with the most decadent chocolate cake from Maison Christian Faure.
And of course, I bought quite a few dresses, some dashing blue heels, had many chocolate ice creams, took lots of pictures of my cat (like this one, this one and this one), tried lots of skincare products and countless lipsticks, ate many oysters and plenty of dark chocolate.
But most importantly, I met the most wonderful people. As I am writing this, I feel beyond fortunate for all the wonderful projects I have had the chance to work on and all the amazing opportunities that came my way in 2014. I would like to thank you again for your support, it wouldn't be the same without you.
Enjoy this recap and see you soon!
