Terrasses Bonsecours Grand Opening

I have to believe that the sun came out in full force last Thursday just for the partygoers at Terrasses Bonsecours. It was the hottest day we have had yet, it was the sunniest day that we have had yet and it was was the perfect way to kick off terrace season.
Drinks were flowing, appetizers were being served and the sun was shining down HARD. Upon arrival I asked if I could be seated somewhere more in the shade and the look the hostesses gave me was hilarious. I am a pale ghost by nature and I believe in protecting my skin from the sun at all costs; I’m that pale girl who wears sunscreen daily, invests in hats and tries to stay out of the sun during peak hours. Guilty.

Le Fix Bar Opening

I had the pleasure of attending a media event for the opening of Le Fix Bar, the first blow-dry and beauty bar to open in the West Island. Anyone who knows me knows that I rarely venture out of the downtown area often. I can’t even remember the last time I went out to the West Island for anything other than visiting family. This event had me leaving the comfort of my downtown solitude, in style of course, and heading out west.

The night started out at Juicyyy Lab in St Henri where we were served delicious watermelon juice and gin creations. After some mingling, all the guests were then chauffeured to DDO to Le Fix Bar  by limo; just a casual Thursday!

Walking in to Le Fix is like waking in to a glamorous girls only club. It’s filled with stations where you can get your hair blown out and styled by one of the many talented hair stylists and then head over to the nail stations where you can get your nails done with gel, shellac, or regular nail polish. They were offering pedicures, manicures and some delicious snacks from L’Gros Luxe. Also featured in Le Fix Bar was the new, second location of Juicyyy Lab, serving more delicious, signature drinks. They definitely get 5 stars for both taste and presentation!

This night was a fashion girls playground. Everywhere you looked there was someone getting their hair done, nails done, a massage or just enjoying the delicious, and instagram worthy, treats. I myself got my hair blown out and it looked fabulous! I am so lazy when it comes to my hair so it felt so nice to have someone wash and style it and it felt even better once I saw the outcome! I am SO picky when it comes to my hair and the stylist I had styled it exactly as I asked.

I recently took a break from gel manicures, my nails were in terrible need of a breather, so I was a little afraid that they wouldn’t have many options available for regular nail polish. Luckily for me they had a variety of different colours, including a pretty light pink colour that I chose to go with!

After everyone was sufficiently glammed up, the limos arrived whisking everyone back downtown. The party continued at Somwhr Liquor Lounge in the Old Port. The bottles flowed and the music blared and the night ended on the same party note that it started on.
