Going “back to school” brings a lot of changes with it, and we took the opportunity to review our beauty routine. The trend is to look very natural; it is better to put our best natural face forward than to hide behind a mask. For reasons of authenticity, we are as much looking for balance in our self-expression as we are in our relationship with the environment. Our favorite products of the season are natural and we were also interested in the ecological alternatives. Discover the simplified beauty routine and the favorite products of Marianne Caron, makeup artist.
At the Strøm bistro, we offer you a menu without making any compromises: healthy AND tasty at the same time! To extend the pleasures of summer, we thought we would share our favorite summer recipe with you: our delicious fennel salad with oranges, kalamata olives and marinated salmon offered at Mont-Saint-Hilaire. A touch of freshness as the month of August comes to an end! Enjoy!
Going back to school can be a source of stress, why not prepare yourself adequately. We spoke with Isabelle Huot and she shared with us her basic rules to eat well despite a busy schedule. Whether it is to prepare lunch or choosing a meal at a restaurant, by following a few simple guidelines, it is possible to eat better in order to perform better! If you are interested to learn even more about this subject, we invite you to attend one of the conferences “Eat to perform better” by Isabelle Huot at our upcoming one day retreats on September 8 at the Strom Nuns’ Island or on September 15 at the Strom Mont-Saint-Hilaire.
While relaxing on the banks of “lac des battures”, it is possible to hear and see different rare species of amphibians, birds and mammals. We had the pleasure to talk with the staff of “Nature-Action” to learn more about the creation of Nuns’ Island, the “lac des battures” and the diversity and richness of its wildlife. Happy reading!
