Staycation, most of the time it means vacation when you don’t have the money to go somewhere else. It’s my case this week  since I’m keeping my money for my next trip in October.  So here are some tips to enjoy that time with yourself in your hometown!

  1. Grocery

Before starting your staycation, the first day go do your groceries and get everything you will need for the week. Buy the food you like and don’t forget your favourite snack and of course some wine bottles! Plan, so you don’t have to get out for that during the week.

2. Treat yourself

This is the perfect time to take a day at a spa, treat yourself and take an extra treatment, whether is a massage or another body treatment!  Bring your favourite book and enjoy that moment with yourself to completely relax!

3. Treat yourself economic options

You don’t have the money to go to the spa? Then take this opportunity to go at a hair salon and treat yourself with a nice brushing, they often offer a glass of wine while you have your hair being washed, a good compromise right? You can have this for less than 20$ in most of hair salon. Another option is to get a manicure/pedicure, again just a little treat for yourself! Of course the most economic option is to do this at home, take a nice warm bath, apply a face mask and relax!

4. Free activities

All cities have free activities to offer, free day at the museum, free concert, I’m sure you can find great activities for free! Here’s a link for 50 free activities in Montreal  For your city just type on google “free activities to do in” and add your city!

5. Read & Watch

This is the perfect time to finally read that book waiting for you on the shelve and that TV show that your friends are always talking about. Go to your Netflix account and start a list to watch for the week!

6. Friends

Most of us have friends that don’t have to same work schedule than us, and it’s always hard to find the perfect time to see them. Now you have the time, make this week the perfect occasion for reunion, schedule a brunch or a shopping day with your friend!

7. Never have the time to do things…

We all have a list of stuff we never have the time to do whether is at home or in life, take this opportunity to scratch them on your to-do-list!

For my part, I’m planning to do Yoga every day, read, go to the spa and taking it easy with a glass of wine every night!!! If you have great staycation ideas to share don’t be shy!!

Tips For Packing Smart Part 1

As you may know, I’m starting my vacation next Friday and my boyfriend and I are doing a west coast roadtrip! Starting with Seattle, we will spend three nights there, then three nights in Portland where we are going to eat lots of donuts from Voodoo Donuts yeah!! Then,  we will take the road to San Francisco and we will make a stop in a small town on the way there. We are going to spend our last four days in San Francisco, I just can’t wait!!

I have been wanting to do a post on what to bring in your luggage for a two-week light travel for a while. I did a couple of backpack travel so I’m quite good at packing smart now! For part one I’ll start with what to bring on the plane,  here’s some of my tips!

What to bring on the plane:

First, for taking the plane, you have to dress comfortable. My best plane outfit include a nice pair of sporty legging, dark ones, black or dark grey. For the top, the best is layering. Start with a good looking but comfortable tank top, cause it can be hot during the landing and depending where’s your destination it can be hot outside too! Then as a second layer use one of your favourite long sleeves. For my part I have a black long sleeves henley shirt, it’ perfect! Always bring a nice scarf, this is a key items for travelling smart, on the flight you can use it as a blanket! During your trip you can use it as a blanket at the park, as a picnic tablecloth and of course when it’s a bit chilly!

On your feet depending the season, wear a pair of shoes or boots that are easy to remove for security check at the airport. During summer a nice pair of Birkenstock is the best! Now in your bag, use a good size tote and bring:

  1. Your favourite book (not too heavy)
  2. Earbuds for a movie or your music
  3. Your Ipad, Ipod, or whatever you have to listen to your music!
  4. Hand Sanitizer
  5. Light snacks; dry fruits, nuts, chocolate, granola bar.
  6. Bottles of water, you need to keep hydrate cause it’s really dry on the plane!!
  7. A rich face and hand cream and use it right before you board.
  8. A pair of comfy socks (cause it’s always freezing on the plane)
  9. A good size scarf
  10. Headache pills (just in case)
  11. Eye mask and a neck cushion

First Fall Shopping From Summer Sales? Yes it’s Possible!

This weekend, I went shopping to see the new fall collections but I ended up buying pieces that where on sale! I was inspired by the newest lines, but I found some very beautiful pieces in the sales sections that are just perfect for my first autumn looks. So here are some tips for fall shopping in the summer sales!

Here are my findings:


A plaid shirt is an autumn classic. During the summer you can find them in lighter fabrics and they are currently on sale. You can now wear them around your waist and take them out for the cooler evenings. Plaid shirts will be a perfect fit with a lot of styles this fall, go with red and navy tones, they’re a must! This one comes from Zara, but you can also find similar ones here at Mango and here at Asos.


Long blazers and long jackets will very trendy this fall. I found this one at Zara, it has a boyfriend blazer look and it’s perfect for this fall. You will find some at Zara, Asos here or this one from Cheap Monday at ShoBop. Do not hesitate to wear it with jeans for a casual look.


A good basic is always good to have. This long sleeves jersey is perfect not only for fall, but throughout the winter. For now you can wear it with your denim shorts and boots, sexy;) You will find some here at ShopBop, here at Need Supply Co. and here at Asos


For a new pair of jeans, go for something out of the ordinary because they are on sale! This is a Phillip Lim inspiration for wich I paid the tenth of the price here at Zara, the original is now also on sale or you can go for a ripped look like this one at Pull & Bear


And finally a piece that you can wear throughout the year, stripes or sailor tees. This one is from the J.Lindeberg men collection that I will wear loose with the sleeve rolled. It’s perfect for those cool summer evenings. This fall it can be worn with your favorite shorts, cute wool socks and a jeans jacket! You’re going to find some here at Need Suppy Co. at Asos here and here at Madewell

And now I hope my tips will help you enjoy the latest summer sales this fall. Happy Shopping! xxx
