Eva B. Café-Boutique.

Sorry for the lack of updates! I've been busy working.

A couple of days ago, my sister and I went thrift-shopping. The store is called Eva B. and it is located on St-Laurent Street. It is a pretty known thrift shop in Montreal.

*The entrance of the store

I really like the store because it has a friendly atmosphere. As you go in, they would always offer you something to drink or to eat. There are also places to sit and to hang around. They sell all sorts of things: pieces of clothing, jeweleries, books, costumes, etc. You can find absolutely EVERYTHING in it. Even though it is known for being a thrift store, Eva B. still sells new and unworn clothes.

We didn't stay there for long. I tried a pair of pink jeans but they didn't fit me and I didn't really keep looking for anything else.

*Some of the masks they have.

*Everything in the messy pile of clothes at the back of the store are all $1!

If you are interested in checking out the store, the address to Eva B. is:
2013, boul Saint-Laurent Montreal, QC H2X 2T3

I'm Back!

I know I know, I've been away for a while. After a few days, I finally got my internet back! In Montreal we had a storm a few days ago, the electricity at my house snapped for a second and my internet and home phone then stopped working. My parents have tried to unplug, to replug the internet DSL and blablabla and everything but finally we had to call the technician. We finally got the internet back yesterday!

As for me, I've been busy working. I'm already done with school :) Now I basically spend 5-6 days a week at Tommy. Today was a day off for me, so I thought of posting something here so you guys could be reassured that I'm still alive, haha.

Hopefully you guys are doing alright as well <3

P-S: Just thought to share a typical conversation that usually occurs about 10 times a day at Tommy that annoys the hell outta me:

Janet: The total comes up to ___ $
*Hands the client the credit card terminal*
Janet: Press "F1" to confirm the price, then enter your NIP.
*Client presses "OK" 5 times*
Client: It doesn't work.
Janet: I SAID PRESS "F1"
Client: Oh, okay.

Oh yeah, so basically I was just talking to the air, eh?

Never Say "No" To...


These are macaroons from Patisserie De Cascogne. It's a pastry from Montreal founded in 1957 and it is still one of the best known pastries in town. Oh how delicious they look!

I've eaten only the strawberry one :) It's absolutely yummy! If you've never eaten one, you should DEFINITELY try.

Anyhow, it's been a good weekend. I've taken the weekend off since I'm sick, but I went to the doctor and she said I'll be all good in a few days. I studied alot and today I went to the library as well.
4 days of school left for me, I can't wait for summer vacation!!!!
I hope you guys had a great weekend! <3

You Will Never Be.

Recently I have been listening to a song on repeat. It's called You Will Never Be by Julia Sheer. She's a young talented artist who shares her music through YouTube. If you have time, check out her YouTube channel!

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.

Happy Tuesday!

The city of Westmount.

Since it was a pretty sunny day on Tuesday, my sister and I went walking in Westmount Park. Westmount is a city in Montreal not too far away from downtown. It is mostly a wealthy residential area. My elementary school was located there so walking in Westmount Park again brought back many memories.

Oops this one's a little bit blurry; I was walking and trying to take a picture at the same time. (I'm the one with darker brown Oxford shoes!)

My friends and I used to go there even after the curfew, (we were like, 10 years old?) just thought it would be cool to do something illegal and not get caught.

Selwyn House School: a private independent boy's school (for Kindergarten to grade 11), seeing them going in and coming out of there reminded me of Gossip Girl, yep even little 7 years old boys have to wear ties! And after school, you'd see all the parents waiting out there in their Porsche and BMW's to pick them up.

Westmount Public Library: it's a very beautiful library, it's not very big, but usually it's not crowded.

During summer, it's a actually surrounded by water. And now they cut down the tree in the middle, the tree's probably too old and cracked. I used to climb up on the tree and read there all the time.

As you can see, it's already April but I'm guessing we're still far away from having a 30 degrees Celsius day. In fact, it's snowing today... :( awww I hope you have a better weather than me, wherever you live!

PS: Happy Easter! Enjoy your long weekend. As for me I'm working Friday, Saturday and Monday... how fun.

@ Starbucks.

Quick post today! Right now I'm mostly busy with school, but I'm still going to try to update as much as possible.

If you had been reading my blog, then you would know that I love to study in coffee shops. So on Monday I went to Starbucks in downtown to study! It had been a productive day.

But the sad news is that my sister actually got her Coach wallet stolen IN that Starbucks. We didn't really see who took it, but we stayed there the whole afternoon so it must have been someone who took it (We suspect one of the Starbucks workers... but that's another long story). She had EVERYTHING in that wallet so it really sucks for her =/..

Hope everyone had a lovely Tuesday! And for the students... well, keep studying! <3

* Yup that's my left arm and my cellphone right there.
