I've had such a jam packed awesome week that I thought I would take this opportunity to do a week in my life post! This one will be a little longer than seven days due to the nature of the week (I know I know, first "week in my life" I do and I'm already breaking the rules). It was my birthday week and I had a lot going on so we'll be doing a week + 2 days in my life if that's alright with you guys :) #9DaysInMyLife
What can you expect in the rest of the post? EVENTS, COLLABS, SCHOOLS, MEETING MASTERCHEF USA WINNER?!
It's all down here! ;)

6PM: Later that evening I attended the launch event for BOUTIQUE SKIN ENVIE with my bff Leah! Boutique Skin Envie is an online shop that sells professional skin care products.

9PM: MY DINNER (which I will give its own paragraph cause there's a lot to say)
DINNER BY DINO LUCIANO, WINNER OF MASTERCHEF USA
I am a HUGE Masterchef fan. I watch the show religiously, it is one of the only shows I watch on television. I never have time to sit down and watch TV so I usually record the show and watch it eventually when I have a free hour. So I watched the entire season OBVIOUSLY and Dino was my favourite from the beginning. So when he won I was over the moon. AND THEN he announced he was coming to Montreal and I just had to be there. So Kayla, my sister and I bought tickets to the dinner and... it was last night!
We had a five course italian vegan menu and it was great (I've included pictures below)!! It was my first full vegan meal and I was really impressed. It was delicious and filling. I kept tasting and describing the experience as if I was Gordon Ramsey haha. During the night, I got the ONLY tour of the kitchen by Chef Dino himself. I was freaking out a little bit. He was wearing his Masterchef apron!!! After dinner, we went to talk to him and take pics. He even wrote me a note! Needless to say, it was an amazing night. Dino is an incredibly kind person. One of the nicest people I've ever met. He had personally sent me the invitation to the event because we had been talking and he knew I wanted to come. Such a sweetheart. All in all, we had a great time and it was probably one of the best nights of my life.
Stay in touch Dino!
Hope to see you soon xx
