In Rotation: “Early Morning Dreamer” #callmejonz #inrotation #newmusic

I live for those five or ten extra minutes in bed where I just lie awake and think before starting my day.

Mural Fest 2014

Recapping “Mural Fest 2014” on the blog today… #callmejonz #muralfest2014 #montreal #streetart #festival

Processed with VSCOcam

So I have been noticeable absent from the blogging world…I have a very good excuse though. I was busy living and mentally capturing events as opposed to documenting it. I was also very busy with work and some other tasks. But alas I am here again!

One of my favourite festivals that took place so far this summer was Mural Fest. It took place from June 12th-15th along Saint-Laurent street downtown…

Spring calls for… “Florals & Fruit” #callmejonz #freshprints #fruitsandflorals #thrifted #fashion

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Outfits of the day have gotten a tad more complicated. I love spring and summer but sometimes I find I still have those go to items that somehow make their way into my outfits during the weak…that special scarf, those favourite flats or that camel colored cardigan. Admit it you have your faves as well!

Well the other day I opened my drawer and saw neglected articles of clothing…more specifically…

A trip to the U.S Capital of Washington, D.C

"A trip to the U.S Capital of Washington, D.C" #callmejonz #washingtonDC #wanderlust


What I love most about D.C is the historical aspect of the capital. Weekend trips tend to fly by so quickly so I promised myself that this time when I went to Washington, DC I would make it my aim to visit Capitol Hill again and the monuments. It was Memorial Day weekend in the states and my sister, her boyfriend and I decided to go on a quick trip to visit my cousin who had recently gotten…

Bookworm: The Fault in our Stars

Finally finished this one…and it’s a tear-jerker…”Bookworm: The Fault in our Stars” #callmejonz #bookworm

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

This month’s read goes out to John Green’s young adult novel The Fault in Our Stars.  I was a bit hesitant to start reading this one, because I heard it was pretty sad, but when a good friend suggested it to me and proceeded to lend me his copy, how could I say no? And so I gave it a go. He did again warn me that it was a real tear-jerker, and boy was he right.

The novel tells the story of Hazel…

Those who wander…

"Those who wander…" #callmejonz #travel #personal


I can’t believe that summer is already here. In a way it serves as a reminder that time is really flying by but on another note it excites me to know that festival season is right around the corner. It seems like just yesterday I was thinking about what I would be doing this year, where I would be, and with whom. I think as I get older I have come to the realization that I am growing as a person,…

Canadian Tulip Fest in Ottawa

Stop and smell the…tulips every once in a while :) …a trip to the “Canada Tulip Fest in Ottawa” #callmejonz


The Canadian Tulip Festivalruns from May 9th- May 19th in Ottawa and in Gatineau and when my sister had an appointment in Ottawa this past weekend, we as a family decided to drop everything and take an impromptu trip across the Ontario/ Quebec border and head to Ottawa. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the previously forecast rain held off. So in other words it was perfect. Although I was a bit…

Juliette & Chocolat

Satisfy your ultimate chocolate cravings at “Juliette & Chocolat” #callmejonz #foodism #foodie #julietteandchocolat


Sometimes we get so caught up in our busy schedules that we seldom have time to spend with friends. Coffee dates offer the perfect opportunities to catch up with friends.  This past Friday my friend and I decided we were long overdue for such a catch up session so we decided to set a coffee date. There are so many cafés and little coffee shops in Montreal to choose from, but I was not…

La Goudrelle, Mont St- Grégoire

Recapping cabane a sucre season at “La Goudrelle, Mont St- Grégoire” #callmejonz #cabaneasucre #foodism #foodie

Processed with VSCOcam with x1 preset

As cabane à sucre season comes to a close, it is a reminder that warmer weather is just around the corner. This year I’m not so sure if warmer weather is on the way but I sure hope so. Cabane à sucre (sugar shack or sugaring off for anglophone) normally runs throughout the month of April and there are several locations in and around Montreal and is pretty much a yearly tradition for Montrealers.…

A Trip to Rustique

Perfect place to satisfy my sweet tooth…”A Trip to Rustique” #foodie #rustiquepiekitchen #callmejonz #montreal


Last week Friday it officially felt like spring; the sky was blue, the sun was shining and the streets were bustling with activity. After what felt like the longest, coldest winter in what seemed like years in Montreal I was happy to finally be able to leave the winter coat and boots indoors in favour of some lighter apparel.

I wanted to take advantage of the weather and meet up with some…
