When Harry met Meghan

You probably know by now that HRH Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged (yeah). 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle engagement

I wasn’t very surprised about this news but I was so happy for the couple. Actually, any happy couple that is happy and in love, I am so happy for them. In that last sentence, I wrote the word happy 4 times!! It is refreshing to write this word.

 

 

 

Back to the happy couple.

 

 

 

They represent our generation. I really don’t understand the fascination with the fact they are an interracial couple. What’s the deal. We are in 21st century people. Why can’t “the media” concentrate on the fact that they are two caring, humanitarians that happened to have met on a “blind date”, clicked, connected and fell in love? 

 

In Canada, I haven’t read much about this fact, but in The States and in The UK, I witnessed that there is still some work to be done regarding discrimination and racism.

Their joint interview with the remarkable journalist Mishal Husain, “career goals”, was like having dinner with friends that are telling you oh my god we are engaged!!” They were happy, nervous in a good way, chatty, loving, and funny.

Funny Prince Harry and Meghan
 

I really was so damn happy when they spoke as a team. They want to conquer the world as a team. They are not afraid of humanitarian work, or of being the people’s Prince and Princess with a twist.

 

 

For us, Meghan is our home girl because she spent so much time in Toronto (except I’m from Montreal, but close enough) and she has really shown that she can integrate herself easily with some help of her friends of course.

 

I always enjoyed her blog, The Tig, because she was a foodie, she enjoyed fashion, and she didn’t take herself too seriously. It was an inviting blog. Another aspect that I integrated into The Chronicle, it was so important to me. 

She is another woman that I thought hmm, she is easy-going,and chill like me and a few of my girlfriends, with this fire in her eyes to fight (like Angelina) the good fight, no matter what.

They are both lucky to have found each other and with HRH Prince William and The Duchess of Cambridge, we may see a new era ladies and gentleman. I think they could bring out the best of one another all together. 

 

Prince Harry and Meghan are in love and they are ready to rock this world. We so need this right now. The sky seems less grey suddenly. I will follow their charities closely and maybe (I got nothing to loose), one day, I could interview them. 

Alright, alright…

You are all laughing and rolling your eyes. 

You never know!

 

Like the two of them, they probably didn’t know they would find each other and realize they found their perfect partner. 

 

In British Royal history, we do know of some couples that were deeply in love, but couldn’t be together because of Royal protocol and the timing wasn’t right. In 2017, we are witnessing a new mentality in the royal family. We all had previous relationships that didn’t work out and maybe we got married and unfortunately, a divorce was the solution. Again, kept reading about how Meghan was married and she is now a divorcee.

So what?

 

What matters most is the personality of the person, the fact that she has her heart in the right place. Let them enjoy this happiness and be supportive, like we are supportive to our friends that may follow the same path.The only difference is that your friends are not part of the biggest royal family of all time.

 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

It’s our time, as a generation, tojoin them in bringing in a new chapter into this story called LIFE.

 

 

Love is all you need

The Gals 

It’s been a while since I wrote a fashion post… 
Fashion sketch
What is happening with me? I’m a die hard sports enthusiast with a flare with fashion. 
That’s why I want to write about this fabulous Canadian company that I fell in love with 5 years ago.
Their message is why wait for the man of our dreams (sort of) to give us that shiny rock, a diamond, when we can treat ourselves with one and put it on our right hand. I was so on board with this mentality!
The Right Hand Gal rings
The Right Hand Gal is a Montreal (yeah!) based jewelry company that two passionate sisters have built in the spirit of empowerment, with such beautiful, simplistic jewelry designs. 
Necklace Right Hand Gal
Shawna and Randi Herlich are the two sisters behind this successful Canadian brand.
Their creations are so nicely done and so comfortable. I just can’t get enough of watching their website.

And, the gals are some of nicest people I have met. I met them in Montreal at Billie’s store on a December night in 2013. They both helped me pick up a nice ring in order to bring an outfit to life.

Until now, when I want to feel I could conquer the world, I wear it with no other jewelry. 
Mission accomplished!
A few actresses, musicians, and public personalities are big fans too. I will leave you the pleasure of Googling their names to find out or go to the Gals website.

This Monday, my post is an ode to my favorite gals. We can be sure the gals will surprise us in 2018 and we will still be amazed by their talent.

Gals forever!!

Erdem pour la vie

Quand je pense à Erdem, je pense à la classe, la romance, la délicatesse et la beauté.

Erdem 2013

Ce designer qui a conquis le coeur de Cate Blanchett, Marion Cotillard, Meghan Markle, Alicia Viander, Keira Knightley, Julianne Moore (que j’adore), la Duchesse de Cambridge et  la première dame du Canada Sophie G. Trudeau.

Ce montréalais qui a grandit à Montréal et à Birmingham en Angleterre détient un baccalauréat en arts en Mode de l’Université Ryerson de Toronto et une maîtrise du Royal College of Art. Je respecte énormément qu’il ait fait des études universitaires pour perfectionner son art.

Erdem M

Il a appris des grands de ce monde tel que Vivienne Westwood et de Diane Von Furstenberg. Deux grandes femmes de la mode avec deux styles très différents mais que les deux ont la même adrénaline qui coule dans leurs veines pour la réussite.

J’aime les motifs qui n’a pas peur d’utiliser sur ses créations. Autant que c’est classique, il y a une bonne touche d’audacité avec la dose exacte pour captiver notre attention.

Je n’écris pas cette chronique comme une expert en mode mais plutôt comme une admiratrice.

Erdem printemps été 2017

 

On peut sentir dans les créations de Erdem est la personnalité paradoxale de Montréal. Je m’explique. Montréal est le meilleur de deux mondes. Il a un côté très européen et un côté très cosmopolite. À mes yeux à moi, Erdem Moralioglu représente la même chose et plus encore.

Continuons à encourager nos designers de chez-nous. Même si ils sont super connus et en demande, je crois qu’il n’y a rien mieux quand des admirateurs de leur ville et de leur pays les encouragent soit en achetant si ils peuvent leurs vêtements ou bien d’en parler entre nous et de les encourager en utilisant les médias sociaux.

Erdem, tu continueras à me faire rêver.
