Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

On Friday I got a special post-Christmas purchase I made for myself online.  I picked up this bias cut cami which I already own in olive green and love (also, it's sticking to my New Years Resolutions because it's 100% silk).


When I got home I whipped up some of my favourite two-ingredient pancakes but added a scoop of vanilla protein to it (I alternate between doing that and not) to tide me over till dinner.


Outfit deets:  F21 sweater, Smart Set reversible cami (just got it in grey as well and loving it!) & F21 necklace (similar & better quality).

Marco and I went out for an impromptu dinner to The Keg Manor which was delicious and your girl cannot pass up a good cocktail so a Keg sized Caesar it was.

More photos after the jump...

On Saturday morning we packed up the car and headed up to Mont. Tremblant to spend the weekend.  When we arrived, we got a complimentary upgrade to the Westin, which is arguably the nicest hotel in the village!  We were stoked and the above was our view from the 5th floor.



We got a few runs in on Saturday and then we...


...hit up our favourite spot, La Forge, for chili in a bread bowl for me and duck wings and fries for him.


Outfit deets:  Nitrogen cardigan (similar), Lulu's tee, Sirens leggings, Rampage boots (similar) & Garage beanie (similar, love this in cream).

Afterwards it was back to the room to nap and relax for a bit before hitting the hot tub and then out for a super late dinner at 11pm.


Outfit deets:  H&M zipper snood (old; similar and now on sale) & Burton Horizon jacket (in orange/plum).

We ended up at Casey's because everywhere else was closed, kitchen-wise.  I had the chicken taco salad and Marco had the rotisserie quarter chicken meal.


The next day, after a tip from a few people we met in the hot tub the night before, we got up at 7:30am to hit the slopes before everyone else (when you stay at the Westin, you get a special pass to use the lifts at 7:45am versus when it opens to the public at 8:30am).  Well, that's pretty early for a Sunday but we managed to make it to the gondola at about 8am, however, it seemed they were letting any and everyone on; the line was huge!  Regardless, we eventually got on and did a couple of runs.


On our third time up, on a different chair lift, we ended up being stuck on the stop-and-go lift for 45 minutes.  It was awful as it was freezing rain and so cold.  When we finally got to the summit, we were chilled to the bone so inside we went for a couple hot chocolates.  After that, we rode down, packed up and headed home in horrible freezing rain driving.



When we got home I whipped up a couple sandwiches: BLT with garlic sauce for Marco and a tomato/avocado with hummus for myself.



Also, this happened.  Gah.  I broke two nails this weekend, one each day and I'm not even sure how but it's the third nail in four ski trips so...


Not sure what this one is called as there is no sticker but it's a metallic navy

...I, sadly, decided to remove my acrylics at home.  I was planning on having them filled this week but as we are planing to ski frequently over the coming months, I figured it's best to go back au natural, for now at least.  I loved having the long nails, it was a fun change however Marco is happy I've taken them off.  On that note, I did film a video on how to remove your acrylics at home which I will share as soon as I get it edited together.


Sunday easy dinner: tilapia with Caribbean fish spices, quinoa & fresh beets.


Hope you had a great weekend!  We are supposed to get a crazy cold one this week, I'm talking -27C!  Ack--give me strength (and my mitts...and scarves and hats and boots!).  Cheers xo

Super fun! I read your 2014 recap and LOVED it and commented with some very heartfelt thoughts but for some reason I did not see the comment posted...too bad!:-) The two reversible cami's you featured her from Smart set are they true to size? I want to pick up a couple and usually wear a size small.
TIA - xxoxo

If you decide to have your nails professionally done again, you may want to consider the porcelain gel nails; they look more natural and are much better for your real nails than acrylics are. Also, if you go for the rounded square shape, rather than the pointier shape you chose this time (which looked nice btw) they won't break as easily. You should also consider shellac polish which costs maybe $5 more and also doesn't chip as easily as real polish.

@Cassandra: your comment on the 2014 Recap posted and I replied to it!! You are soooo sweet, thank you for that, it's still there, not to worry. The Smart Set camis are def true to size, I grabbed a medium and it's a perfect fit!

@Ashley Page: Thank you! I have never tried the porcelain gel but have done shellac many times before (even considered purchasing my own UV light about a year ago but decided not to). I love the almond/pointy shape, which was the reason for the acrylics but definitely the reason they were breaking :( wah wah. Maybe in the Spring I'll rock them again or maybe, just maybe I'll finally grow my own nails :P (haha, unlikely). Thanks for your comment.
