Please meet my new favorite: Dr. Mindy Lahiri!  She is so cool and kind of the cutest. She is a bit... unconventional at first, but it's surprising in a good way to discover her to be so liberated, unapologetic and politically incorrect. SO refreshing in a TV world full of super beautiful people and really high pitched skinny girls! I cannot wait for season 4 to hit Netflix Canada on February 22. Virginie XO



I'm always a bit late at doing my yearly retrospect (see 2014 here, 2013 here and 2012 here) but 2015 was particularly hard to do. The last year was challenging in many many ways... but after a few power yoga sessions and a screaming freeing exercise in the middle of the forest, I'm finally ready to look back with peace, be grateful for the chance to grow and move on! I'm focused on making 2016 a great year and I'm already SO excited for the new opportunities I have coming up in the next few months. Best (belated!) wishes for the new year everyone! Virginie XO



I've been obsessed with suspense films lately and Basic Instinct is one of my current favourites! Skip the sequel though, it's really disappointing. Virginie XO



This year we decided to have a very low key Christmas and stay in the Côte-de-Beaupré where we currently live instead of heading to my father's farm, close to Montreal, as we usually do. Ramiro and I have held this tradition for years of doing an outdoors snow adventures on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and this year was no different! Photos above are from Christmas Eve, we enjoyed the most breathtaking sunset in Saint-Ferreol-les-Neiges. You know I'm all about them pink skies.

On Christmas Day, we headed to one of our favorite places, the Baie Saint-Paul beach, for a stroll and some sea air. We are getting unusually warm weather here this year and it was SO lovely. And beautiful! Last time we spent Christmas here, it was f r e e z i n g.
Ramiro is going through a panoramic phase and inspiring me to explore more with the option on my Iphone. They are so pretty don't you think? Happy Holidays everyone! Virginie XO



More photos from Cuba because honestly, it was beyondo! I love that there were so many mangroves in the garden, the gardener made the cutest little origami animals and flowers out of their leaves.

Our hotel also had a little lagoon where I watched the sunset every night, it made me feel like The Little Mermaid (and it was also a great spot to bird watch). Our veranda also overlooked the lagoon, the last pic is our view through a 80MM lens. I haven't had much time in 2015 to indulge into my photography hobby and it was really nice to be able to reconnect with my camera on this trip.  Virginie XO
