My Hot New Mima Double Stroller

With the arrival of baby number 2, a horizontal double stroller seemed a bit cumbersome for little me to be gadding about with. I found an amazing vertical double stroller! Mima is a European brand, new to Canada, that is gorgeous looking and very practical. George, my oldest child sits in the top seat and underneath I have bassinette attached that can be replaced by a seat when the time comes. Check it out at Trendy Strollers in Montreal or go to

Barbarella Spa for a great Spray Tan!

I love my Barbarella spray tan! The solution is an organic, oil-free, alcohol-free & fragrance-free sunless tanning solution. There is absolutely no haze while you are being sprayed and no smell! It is completely free of parabens and is all-natural. To see the ingredients go to The tan is sprayed by a technician & takes just 5 minutes. You can choose 'The 90 minute until you shower tan' or 'The 8 hours before you shower tan,' great options and the tan still develops! I just love the color it produces, no streaking, it's an even glow and you can decide how dark you want to go. It lasts on me 10 days with moisturizing and guess who wears the same spray tan ? The Kardashians! If you have any questions email me!
Barbarella Spa is located in the Plateau, a very laid back environment, at 2063 Saint-Denis, H2X 3K8, Tel: 514 266 2277 for an appointment.

Bella Clinique for the perfect complexion!

We all desire that flawless skin only the A List Celebrities seem to strut down the red carpet or display in magazines. Well I have found the secret & the best part is you can get the facial treatments here in Montreal by Jennifer Brodeur, who actually performs the treatments personally to the stars in Los Angeles. The Max Plus LED Machine, created by Jennifer, gives amazing results which are safe, non invasive & with no risk of hyperpigmentation. It treats skin rejuvenation, acne, gets rid of age spots & sun damage, significantly tones and tightens, boosts collagen production, minimizes lines and wrinkles and basically gives you that porcelain looking perfect complexion. After a series of 6, skin keeps getting better up to 9 months afterwards. I go for the treatments regularly, love the results and see why her clients are Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Anniston to name a few! My friends are in awe of my complexion!

Trendy Strollers

So as time crept up I started doing my research on baby furniture & strollers. The best place I found was Trendy Strollers, where their selection, knowledge and level of customer service was by far the best I had found in and around Montreal. I chose a lovely Mamas and Papas Mylo pram and stroller which was lightweight when lifting it, easily convertible from pram to stroller, light to push and looks plush!
Trendy Strollers also has a fabulous selection of gorgeous baby furniture. I ordered a stunning Young America crib in french antique white and a matching dresser with changing table. I also invested in an Essentia Baby Jeanius Mattress, made from organic denim and topped with a natural memory foam for a comfortable and healthy sleep surface. When you are a first time mum and have no idea where to buy, allow me to have done the running around and research for you ... visit Trendy Strollers .... 4050 Jean Talon Street West, Montreal, Tel: (514) 807 4906

Orla's Tips For The Perfect Fake Tan

Always exfoliate your whole body very well with an exfoliating mit and some soap the morning of your tan. Just before the tan is applied at the spa put some vitamin E cream on your knee caps, elbows, feet & hands (especially!). If you have a blemish or mark that has absorbed too much of the tan, once the tan has been apllied take a cutip, dip it into some eyemakeup remover and carefully swivel the cutip on the blemish and reduce the color. A bit of mac coverup matching the color of the tan also helps the day after. Wearing loose fitting clothes is key after the tan is applied! Wait till the following morning to shower and always moisturise with cream mixed with a drop of Johnsons aloe vera gel oil! The tan will last you a good week.
