when i'm driving in my car and that man comes on the radio.

my next section of my canada adventure is a slightly smaller style based snippet.
after having another brunch (such a hard life) j and family newman went for a wander and didn't do that much, but in the evening we went to j's gig for his band continental rhythm in a rather nice cafe.

dress | pull and bear
boots | boden*

i've had this dress since last summer and with my new boots purchased with my uniform allowance (i couldn't resist i mean look at them they are perfect!) it was the ideal warm evening outfit.
admittedly i did feel a liitttlleee like i was from texas in this outfit, but i don't really see anything wrong with that...

a short but sweet snippet today, i have two more instalments of adventures lined up before they come to an end.

life is a bit hectic at the moment as jay and i are in the process of moving soon and my organisational skills with working full time are still left to be desired but i will do my best to bring you a regular dose of dad jokes and silly poses

montreal one 21
this section of my adventures takes place when we arrived back in montreal, j decided that after we need to clime 'the mountain' (rather large hill) quite a few hundred steps later with red faces we reached the top and i lurked in the shade being the pale person i am.
the views a pretttaaaayyy nice, i couldn't resist a 'helloooo canada' picture like the big tourist i am!

tee | forever 21
skirt | topshop
hat | urban outfitters
sandals | primark
bag | cambridge satchel company

this outfit is one of my favourites of the summer, i got this skirt when it was still chilly but i knew it would be a summer favourite, plus its jazzy. whats not to love.

in the afternoon we went for a wander round the fine art museum, the faberge exhibition was absolutely beautiful, excellent for magpies like me. plus they had faberge sausage dogs, my two favourite things, but the eggs were the shining stars of the exhibition.

for dinner we ventured out to steak frites which was absolutely devine, cooked to perfection and the waiters refill the bowl of chips in front of you at regular intervals much to r's joy.
j and m took us to a james bond/mad men style secret bar called big in japan which is hidden behind an unmarked door next to a hipster pizza restaurant. strong vintage cocktails served by waiters in bow ties (some with really good hair) even though it was 9 on a thursday evening the place was chocablock!

take the night to an open road.

quebec 17

what happens when you spend two weeks in the land of maple syrup and pastries, you end up about a stone heavier (pretty sure they were going to make me book two seats on the way home)
thats right folks i went on a family newman adventure to canada (french canada to be exact as i know you like all the facts)
this post (and the next few) will be pretty long and picture heavy so grab yourself a tea and a croissant just for good measure.
i'll start with a little back story (told you it was going to be long) 
as you all know i am a lady with many many cousins, well my cousin j met a beautiful lady called m on his travels many years ago and moved to montreal and married her. shortly after j moved his brother b decided to join him in canada and now lives in quebec.
papa n likes for us to go on holiday and visit family and friends so we can have our own personal tour guides and he decided it was about time that went adventured to canada. 
okay have a break with some photos...

just a quick note to say this was on of the best burgers i have eveeerrrr had, if you are ever in quebec take a trip to chic shack, plus they have nice lights and jam jar mugs which are all good things in my book.

chocolats favoris a confectionary shop but also has the best ice cream invention EVER, you chose your ice cream and then they dip you ice-cream in melted chocolate which you can also chose the flavour of. oh my laawwwdddd it was incredible, i seriously want one right now.

most of our time was spent exploring the city and eating (allot) but on our last night we managed to get tickets for cirque du soleil, it only seemed fitting as quebec was the city it was started in. the show was incredible and i won't lie i was humming the tunes all the way home.

now a newman holiday never seems to be normal, this one was no exception. our hotel (well apartment) owner informed us that the what looked like a bar underneath our room was infact a burlesque club to be opened in 2015. 
i tell you what though he sure knew how to make a cracking breakfast: crepe, croissant, fresh fruit with maple syrup and home made jam every morning. if only i could have it for more than a week!
also being the incredibly pale being that i am i burnt my scalp and had to make a little hat purchase in urban outfitters. 
that probably enough for now, i have a few more posts in store for you that include outfit pictures for your viewing pleasure (i hope..)
