Well you have one in YouTube Vlogger, style guru and chic Montrealer mom Mel Soldera. A longtime shopper and fan of The September, Mel shared some of her fave things with us (we love how she spends dream Sundays)…

1. Favourite destination?

Barcelona is my favourite city in the world but a very close second for me is Hong Kong.

2. First designer purchase?

My Louis Vuitton Pochette Accessoires. I saved up so long for that bag! I still have it and use it today even though it’s almost 20 years old!

3. Flats or heels?

Heels 100%! I’m so little that I don’t feel comfortable in flats.

4. Last vacation?

New York for work and Punta Cana for pleasure.

5. Favourite fall trend?

All the bright colours and animal prints.

6. Guilty pleasure?

I have two! Champagne and sea-salt dark chocolates.  

7. Makeup kit essentials?

Laura Mercier Translucent Powder, Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation and Anastasia Brow Wiz.

8. What’s on your playlist?

Maluma by Mala Mia; El Amante by Nicky Jam; Mr. Brightside by The Killers; and I’m Real by JLo. I love a mix of all kinds of music!

9. Favourite scent?

Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey is my all-time favourite but Baccarat Rouge 540 by Francis Kurkdjian is a very close second.

10. Dream artwork?

Anything Banksy.

11. Last supper?

My mother’s lasagna followed by her homemade lemon cheesecake.

12. Best thing about Montreal?

The multiculturism is my favourite thing about this city.
