D-

11:15 PM: "GRADES ARE UP!!" read a message from Val, a girl I met in my macroeconomics class.

Shock. That was fast... a mere two days had passed since we wrote the final exam. 

I jumped out of bed, grabbed my laptop, logged onto my university portal. Nothing. No grades.

"They're not there!!" I practically yelled into the phone as soon as V answered. 

"Check your e-mail, Kate."

There it was... the most anticipated, yet most dreaded e-mail of the year. The Excel attachment would reveal my grade for the last undergraduate university class I'd ever take...

The Little Pink Dress

Every girl probably has an item of clothing hanging in her closet that is both her best friend and her worst enemy. For me, it is a pink Dolce & Gabbana dress that my parents bought me in Italy a few years ago. The first time I wore it, it was for M's 40th birthday bash. It was hell getting it on, only because I was feeling really bloated that day. M made me do exercises in the dress so that it would stretch a little. It kind of worked...

It's finally over.

Allow me to introduce you to a side of me that you have never seen before! This is me in 'studying for finals' mode!!! With exams behind me, and an undergraduate degree under my belt, I''m officially back to blogging... and will never use the 'I have to study' excuse again! WOOHOO! 

Seriously though, you'd think finals are killing you? THIS is what I looked like this morning at 5 am... after spending my waking (and sleeping) hours with my head in my books, literally! Hot, I know. Two bottles of Powerade and about six coffees later, I wrote my Financial Management exam... it's finally over.

Are you a magazine junkie?

One of my favourite things to do at the beginning of every month is to stop by Shoppers and pick up my favourite magazines. We all know that magazines can add up to a pretty hefty bill, especially if you're getting a few of them! Here in Canada - mainstream magazines such as Cosmo, Vogue, and Vanity Fair can run you anywhere from $6 to $15 per issue! 

When I heard about Digital Magazines, I was a little skeptical about reading them online. Thanks to Chantelle of Belle Chantelle and Zinio I was able to give them I try, and I don't think I'll be going back to paper copies any time soon!

Dad

Here's to the man who puts up with all of my ridiculous requests...
To the man who believes in me no matter what
To the man who puts me first
To the man who loves me unconditionally
To the man who would drop anything to come pick me up
To the man who speaks to me in French... for no good reason
To the man who makes hilariously bad jokes
To the man who sees no fault in me
To the man who has cried in front of me
To the man who puts up a good fight
To the man who has given me everything

To the man I can't imagine living without...

Watch This

Santa (a.k.a. mom & dad) got me this beautiful limited edition Michael Kors watch for Christmas last year! I've never paid it proper homage on my blog, so here it is! Isn't it the most perfect colour?! I have a two tone silver and gold watch, but it just doesn't compare to this beauty!  The brown metallic colour isn't typical of Michael Kors, so I always get tons of compliments on it... and for good reason!

SuWu Montreal - A Must Try!

Zach Macklovitch and Nathan Gannage graciously hosted the grand opening of their new restaurant on Wednesday, SuWu (located at 3581 St. Laurent), in Montreal. The place was buzzing with media & socialites, and it's no doubt that everyone was impressed by the fabulous food, drinks and old-school hip-hop vibe. The restaurant boasts a vintage meets urban decor and is set up with quaint tables and lounge areas throughout.

Celebrating

Hi there!

I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter. 

This year, I spent the Holiday with my entire family (all 35 of us!) at my Fairy Godmother's house. The event was especially important because we not only celebrated Easter but also my Grandparents' 70th wedding anniversary! Yes... 70 years of devotion for one another & above all, devotion for the family they built together!
