Last weekend I had a fabulous girls-getaway in Montreal with my friend and Montreal based stylist, Marie-Claude. We had the pleasure of attending the W Montreal’s Pit Stop Lounge on Saturday afternoon and later that evening, the VIP party at the hotel’s stunning Plateau Lounge.
At the W’s lounge, we were treated to various beauty stations where we had our hair, nails and make-up done by some of the city’s top specialists. We were spoiled with Champagne, gluten-free sweets and music by Dj Florence Masson as we enjoyed each station and perused some of Montreal’s top beauty and fashion brands.
Never one to say no to pampering, I was completely in my element. It was an exciting event to attend and get all dolled up for that night’s party. First stop was nails by CND – Creative Nail Design – I chose a fuchsia purple that I instantly loved. Next, on to hair by La Rousse Espace Beauté. They were set up in an airstream right in from of the W and every person who walked out looked gorgeous! I got an up-do, which is rare for me, and I was thrilled with it. If you live in Montreal (or are visiting) – they are worth making an appointment with.
With a glass of Champagne in hand, the lovely ladies at Wonderblush gave me beautiful and dramatic eyelashes fit for an evening of glitz and the wonderful makeup artists at Guerlain gave Marie-Claude and I glamorous looks – featuring sultry smokey eyes (if only I could do them as good as they did!).
The lounge was bumping and celebrities, media personalities, and fashion bloggers were amongst the attendees. It was such a pleasant surprise to run into Ottawa’s own Derick Fage, who recently became a host on Breakfast Television Montreal, and his lovely wife, Monika. They seemed to be having just as much fun as we were!
After an afternoon of relaxing and fun at the lounge we headed home, with a generous gift bag full of gorgeous goodies, for a wardrobe change before returning to the night’s event.
The VIP Pit Stop Lounge at the Plateau was the place to be with flowing Champagne and great vibes as everyone bopped to chill sounds by DJ Erica Rhone.
W Montreal, you sure know how to throw a party!
