RIP Jean Beliveau a.k.a Le Gros Bill

Tonight, the city of Montreal is in mourning and so I am.

Earlier today, we lost an icon, a gentleman and probably the classiest man to have ever played in the NHL.

Jean B

When I was a kid, I often heard my pops talking about the several charities they were involved with together and I still remember my dad’s face lighting up when talking about Jean Beliveau.

My dad was not one to give out faux praise, so you knew when he did; it was for real. Jean Beliveau was one of rare ones those Dad praised.

I have always been in awe of him and every time I have seen him, he always had a kind word and always took the time to chat with me; the last time was a couple of years ago at the Bell Center.

From what I am reading & hearing today, he was like that with everyone and that is why the city of Montreal is in mourning tonight.

My dad and him were a lot of alike: classy, humble & unpretentious. So today, I feel like I lost another father and I am definitely not alone in feeling that way.

Thank you Mr. Beliveau for being you and thanks for all that you did for the city of Montreal.

The sky above Montreal is a little less bright tonight as it is missing it’s biggest & brightest star. RIP Jean Beliveau

Happy Halloween (31/10/2014)

“Halloween wraps fear in innocence,
As though it were a slightly sour sweet.
Let terror, then, be turned into a treat.”

Wishing you all a Happy & safe Halloween !

I thought this one was appropriate in light of what happened in Ottawa yesterday.

Clinique Bonus Time at Sears

It’s time for another Clinique Bonus. This time it’s at Sears and it runs from October 16th, 2014 to November 4th, 2014.

To get the bonus, you need spend $ 31 or more. It comes in two choices of palettes: pink or purple. I went with the purple as I went with the pink for the bonus at the Bay a couple of weeks ago.

I was in need of eye shadow primer and lip gloss (a girl can never have too much lip gloss).

  • All About Shadow — 02 Moderately Fair
  • Long Last Glosswear — 10 Air Kiss

The bonus comes with a cute make up bag.

Included in the bonus:

Different lipstick — A Different Grape
All About Shawdow Trio — 10 Going Steady
High Impact Mascara — 01 Black
Clinique Happy Perfume Spray
Repair Uplifting Firming Cream
Dramatically Different Mosturizing Lotion

All in all a good haul for a $ 48 dollar purchase.

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m still recuperating from our Thanksgiving meal from yesterday.

A great time was had by all.

Today, I’m thankful for my family and my friends (real ones and my imaginary internet ones). I’m also thankful for new beginnings.


“I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land.”
