Ok so now that I am back to work all I can keep thinking about is my weekends. I really like my job but cmon free weekends are awesome!
Recently, I spent the afternoon in Montreal. Really it is the perfect weekend or day trip from Ottawa, only being about 2 hours away and with so many hip, beautiful and fun things to check out.
So first up I went to Boutique 1861. If you have never been it is a must go store!!!
Whether you are looking for the perfect work outfit, cocktail dress or just window shopping it will not disappoint.
1861 is this cute little vintage eclectic inspired shop that makes you feel as though you are stepping into Marie Antoinette’s personal(modern) walk in closet.
Sursly, the amount of blush pink in this store is a millennial’s dream!
After all my shopping, I worked up an appetite and walked about 100 feet down the street to Juliette & Chocolate
Oh em gee, it is positively the tastiest and chocolatiest cafe and restaurant I have ever been.
It is not for the faint of heart though, visiting Juliette is like a walk into a grown up Willy Wonka factory! So much chocolate, in so many ways.
And then a walk through the town before you make your way home.
There are so many great places to pop into or stumble upon in Montreal that can make anyday an adventure.
