We were in Montréal last weekend to celebrate my niece's first holy communion and also to celebrate Mother's Day. Montréal is a city where they have the expertise in breakfast places or brunch as what we call in Toronto. One of the pioneer in such breakfast food restaurants is Eggspectation. What did we expect in Eggspectation? Well, more eggs cooked in different kinds. I ordered one of the best in Montréal, the eggs Benedict with Montréal smoked meat with fresh hot coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. I loved how the eggs were cooked and their hollandaise sauce was the perfect kind. Other members of my family ordered the Québec speciality, breakfast poutine while the others remained traditional with the American breakfast and the french toast with the Québec maple syrup. Montréal never fails to feed us well.

From Bon Bons to Macarons At Nadège

 One of the best things that ever opened at Yorkdale Mall is  Nadège Patisserie which is one of the best patisseries in Toronto that produces the ever colourful and delicious macarons, bon bons, chocolat, pastries and the most beautiful cakes. They also have a variety of macaron flavours from kalamanzi (Filipino lemon), rose, champagne and the classic pistachio and chocolate flavours. Just looking at the pastel colours of the macarons, rainbow colours of the bon bons and the lovely colours of the cakes makes me want to live there. I will definitely come back for a visit even though it was quite a walk around the mall to get there. 

Spring Tulips

 Spring is a season of renewal and rebirth. Just like our tulips now blooming in our garden in different colours and breeds. Spring is a season to wear colour in red, yellow, orange, purple, white, green and pink. It is time to go out and enjoy this spring season and gardens. 
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.
- Ecclesiastes 3:1

Spring Fashion Style

 Shopping for Spring is always so fun and inspiring as it is the season to really wear colour. I'm enjoying all the spring colours from orange, peach, pink, yellow, green, light blues, red, white, cream and black.  The window displays at Yorkdale Mall, west of Toronto, show case all of these colours plus more whimsy feathers from Prada, floral prints at Holt Renfrew, orange hues at Chanel and sandals with pearls at Stuart Weitzman. Just window shopping here delighted my spirit.

Spring Floral Style

Spring is one of my favourite season despite the allergy season. The floral tops, mini skirts and shorts are so pretty, feminine and uplifting to the spirit. Love the colours in pink, coral, greens and beige that is showing in spring windows especially at Zara. What inspires and uplift your spirits during Spring? 

Brunch At Le Select

 Sometimes a Sunday brunch at Le Select Bistro is food for the soul. Brunch is a relaxing way to enjoy the food, the drink and the company of wonderful family or friends. Le Select Bistro in downtown Toronto is one of the truly authentic french bistro in town. They serve one of the best and freshly baked croissant in town. Their Brunch Menu covers some speciality food from every region in France from the typical Parisian escargot, steak frites, confit de canard (duck) to the choucroute garnie a L'Alsacienne from the Alsace region. Their wine list offers a variety of french wines from every region of France too. The whole place is decorated with art from french artists. I truly enjoy coming down here just to eat and enjoy the place. When the weather gets warmer and the sun comes out, their patio will open soon.
