Fashion Meets Art – Mugler Couturissme Exhibition at Musèe des Beaux-Arts Montrèal

Hello, hello!

Today I have something a little different to share with you – a selection of photos from my visit to the Thierry Mugler Coutuissme exhibition at the Musèe des Beaux-Arts Montrèal (Montreal Museum of Fine Arts). If you follow me on Instagram, you might recognize these photos from my Stories. [info in italics taken from the MBAM website]

Thierry Mugler Couturissme

Premiering in Montreal, Thierry Mugler: Couturissime brings together more than 150 garments made between 1977 and 2014, most of which are being shown for the first time, as well as a wealth of unpublished archival documents and sketches. One hundred or so photographs by such world-renowned fashion photographers as Helmut Newton, Sarah Moon, Pierre et Gilles, David LaChapelle, Paolo Roversi, Herb Ritts, Dominique Issermann, Guy Bourdin and Richard Avedon, to name a few, round out the show. Each of the immersive galleries has been designed in collaboration with talented artist-designers and set designers, including Michel Lemieux, Philipp Fürhofer and Rodeo FX.

 

If you get a chance to go see this exhibition in person, you should! I’m probably going to go back for a second visit – so many beautiful details to look at!

Thanks for reading,

abrashattitude.com have a beautiful day!

Disclosure: All photos taken by me, and I paid for my ticket.

I’m back!

Hello, hello!

I’m back from my mini vacation, and the blog will return to its regular content on Friday. I was in Nova Scotia with the Mister to visit my parents, and attend my cousin’s wedding.

Where my parents live, there are beautiful trails and lots of deer – we came upon two in someone’s yard snacking on the trees and shrubs. These were taken from across the road so not as to scare them away:

I had planned on keeping up with all of your blogs – reading and commenting, but failed at this, so I’ve loads to catch up on.

Have a beautiful day!

Mini Clothing Haul

Hello, hello!

Today I have something a little different – a peek at the clothes that I bought last weekend. I went shopping with the goal of purchasing one or two blouses that would work with what I already had in my closet. I haven’t bought myself any clothes in so long! Here’s what I got (all at 20% off):

1. Printed jersey t-shirt

Mini Haul (H+M) April 2018

2. Flowy printed blouse (Anna Glover X H+M Collab) – I love this type of blouse with jeans, skirts or shorts. I wore this blouse on Wednesday to a client meeting with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans.

Mini Haul (H+M) April 2018

3. Floral printed collar shirt – it is weird, I don’t usually go for prints that often, but this season I saw SO MANY prints that I really liked. Again, I can see wearing this one with several jeans, skirts or even shorts in my wardrobe. This photo does not do the print justice at all.

Mini Haul (H+M) April 2018

4. Printed shirt dress (Anna Glover X H+M Collab) – This not something that I would normally try on, let alone buy, but I really liked the print and decided to try it on and LOVED it! I can picture wearing this with a cute pair of flats or sandals (or more likely flip flops).Mini Haul (H+M) April 2018

Bonus – a little birthday gift to me from me:

Every year, around my birthday, Softmoc has a Friends and Family sale (usually 25% discount I think), so I bought myself a new pair of Vans slip-on sneakers to replace my old pair. I think I had my last pair for three years and they were so worn out!

Mini Haul April 2018 - Vans

So there you have it,  my mini clothing haul. Hope you enjoyed something a little different than my usual reviews.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Scentuals Rejuvenate Ultrasonic Diffuser Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Rejuvenate Ultrasonic Diffuser from Scentuals that we recently purchased because my Aromagem from Saje had an unfortunate accident. [info in italics taken from Well.ca]

This post was supposed to go up yesterday –  I had forgotten to schedule it  and didn’t realize until this morning – oops!

 

Scentuals’ beautiful Rejuvenate Ultrasonic Electric Diffuser is a wonderful modern addition to any space. The natural wood finishing and warm LED lights add an inviting touch to any environment while scenting the air delicately with pure essential oils. Brighten your home with scents that move you.

  • Max water level 600ml
  • Mist level options: High, Low
  • Runtime 20 hours on lowest setting
  • Automatic safety shut off when low water levels are detected

Scentuals Rejuvenate Ultrasonic Diffuser

We chose this one because it had a large capacity water reservoir, and variable mist setting. It has been used daily / nightly since we got it.

It makes a little bubbling noise occasionally when the water level gets low, but overall I find it to be a fairly quiet diffuser. It is easy to fill and clean, which is always a plus.

Scentuals Rejuvenate Ultrasonic Diffuser

We just ordered a second one on the weekend, so we don’t have to move this one from the living room to the bedroom all the time – I missed the mail delivery yesterday, so I’ll be picking it up today after work.

 

Do you use an essential oil diffuser? What is your favourite essential oil (or blend)?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

These are the Columbia Minx Mid boots, and they have are waterproof, breathable, and toasty warm (up to -25F / -32C). They are super lightweight and the soles feel bouncy!

Monthly Watch Club Review

*PR SAMPLE*

Hello, hello!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a little unboxing in my Stories from Monthly Watch Club. They contacted me and asked if I wanted to try out one of their watches – funnily enough, I actually needed a new watch – so of course I said yes!

[info in italics taken from their website]

Monthly Watch Club

For as little as CA $33.00 ($25 USD) a month you will receive a new custom made watch that is yours to keep. We work with watch makers from around the world to provide you with amazing watches at an amazing price. You will never receive the same watch twice. Start building your collection today!

 

MonthlyWatchClub2

I received the September watch which has a gold coloured face and hands, a date dial, and brown leather strap. It is a lovely looking watch, and is comfortable to wear.

The watch arrived in a padded envelope and packaged in a black gift box.

Monthly Watch Club

I think that this would make a great gift idea for people who collect watches –  they have subscriptions for both men and women’s watches  – there are several subscription options: month to month plans, 3 months, six months, and 12 months.

MonthlyWatchClub

One of the cool things about this company is that they give back:

Monthly Watch Club cares about the entrepreneurs struggling around the world, that’s why we are partnered with Kiva to provide 10% of all profits going towards people building businesses around the world.

What do you think about a monthly watch subscription? Do you wear the same watch all the time, or do you have a collection?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
