How spoiled were we today? We had the best weather in Toronto!
Started off this magnificent day with a nice lakefront run with my partner in crime @offneraurelien. He’s a great running partner!
Following our run, we grabbed a late lunch on the patio of the Drake Hotel. Always good food and good drinks at the Drake. We continued our day with a little ballad along Queen west and I stopped by Jacflash to grab a brand new One Teaspoon Superman Bodice bikini for my upcoming vacation in California. I’ve been seeing the bikini pop up on my instagram feed and needed to get one for myself. I love the cut, the straps and the hot pink is adorable! Can’t wait to rock it in Venice (not surfing in this though ;))!
We finished off our walk with a little stop by Bellwoods, which was even more packed than usual. No surprise here! All in all, another fabulous day! Stoked for our vacation next week but also really enjoying the weather in the city. Now… movie night?!
Happy to finally be wearing shorts today! For my outfit, I mixed shades of blue, florals and also black and gold accessories. Love stacking two of my favorite necklaces: the Biko Colby necklace & the Uranium Sign necklace.

I spent this past weekend in Montreal to visit my family and also for a few fun meetings. Though it was absolutely jam-packed with family jams, I had a little bit of time to myself on Friday morning to do one of my current favorite things: go for a run! It had been a while since I had gotten the chance to run in the big Seaway park, which is located right on the waterfront in St-Lambert. As a kid, I spent countless evenings walking the dog there, biking, practicing soccer, etc. Friday morning, the park looked just as pretty as it always has. The view of Montreal from the park is pretty stellar!
On Friday afternoon, I was delighted to finally go meet the lovely ladies of Uranium. As I’ve mentioned before, growing up, all the MusiquePlus VJs wore the coolest t-shirts, jewels and accessories from Uranium. Over the years, I’ve followed their evolution from afar and what an evolution it’s been. Their newest office located in the west end of Montreal is big and fun! The entire staff young, super sweet and outgoing.
The lovely Jessika gave me a tour of the office. Not only is it an office, it’s also a design space, a showroom, bar, shipping room & more. Uranium produces everything locally. Their slogan “Locally Produced & Positively Energized” definitely rings true! Though based in Montreal, Uranium has reps across Canada and now also across the United States. I love their idea of having four distinct collections: Beauty, Strength, Love & Creativity. Each season they produce approximately 10 necklaces, 7-10 earrings/rings/bracelets as well as t-shirts and accessories for each of their individual collections. I like that most of their designs can be worn by both men and women. They’ve also been collaborating with a bunch of different artists and their latest collaboration is with Montreal singer-songwriter Coeur de pirate. Proceeds from the sale of her designs go to the St-Justine Hospital Foundation for children in Montreal. And to top it all of, the company’s owner and designer Mary-Eve couldn’t be radder!
Uranium will be at the Francofolies in Montreal in June and have a bunch of other events and cool projects in the works. Looking forward to seeing them all again soon!
I spent the rest of the weekend eating good food with the family and enjoying some quality time with my mom. Wishing a Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there today! Grateful every day for my hero of a mom! Je t’aime xo
