About Me

I started Loulou's Views in 2007 (yes, back in the original blogging days before Instagram!) so friends and family could keep up with the day-to-day happenings of my life as a mom. I've always loved writing and sharing my views on everything from parenting to beauty and travel, so blogging was a natural fit for me. 

My lifestyle blog is for people who share my love of travel, beauty, shopping, and style. I'm a product junkie and a shopaholic and I truly love spreading the word about brands, companies, and hotels I love. I hope you know you'll always get the real deal with me--I am super passionate and enthusiastic about the things I post about, here and on my Instagram page. 

A little bit about me: I graduated from Carleton University with a degree in Communications and received my Broadcast Journalism degree from Loyalist College. I spent several years working in television and radio, completed an internship at CBS TV in Washington, D.C. and Entertainment Tonight in Hollywood, California, and have been working as a Communications and Marketing Advisor for the federal government for many years. 

My biggest accomplishment is being a mom to my two boys, who are 16 and 13 years old.

Escape to Chicago: Where to Stay, Dine, and Shop

I had the great pleasure of once again joining Choose Chicago on a press trip to experience the vibrant city of Chicago. Chicago was recently voted the Best Big City in America and as usual, Chicago was a dream, and I can't wait to return. (To read more about all the fun things to do in Chicago if you're planning a trip to the Windy City for your next holiday escape, you can read my article in Canadian Geographic Travel ).  Here are a few highlights that'll help you plan your next Chicago trip with ease--how to get there, where to stay, where to dine, and what to do:  Porter Airlines Travelling during the pandemic can be challenging, but my flight with Porter Airlines made the experience smooth, comfortable, and safe. I had all the necessary documents with me (proof of vaccination and rapid test for entry to the USA) and Porter took care of the rest--I was met with excellent service checking in, and in-flight (we loved our flight attendant so much!) along with tasty snack

Mommy and Me Monday!

Why do weekends go by so fast? Monday is here yet again - and it's always a bit of a bittersweet day for me. On one hand, I love getting dressed up and going to work, going to the gym during the lunch hour, shopping, or lunching with friends -but at the same time, I miss my boys terribly when I go to work! Nothing is as sweet to me as weekends with my boys. Waking up together, taking our time to get dressed, and doing whatever we want. Yesterday, we went to the sugar bush and it was amazing - the kids had the greatest time, and I was even able to get in a picture with them! The truly amazing thing is that we're all looking at the camera and smiling! You all know this is not something that comes easy with children, right? Now I'll be able to look at their little smiley faces all day long... Hosted by the lovely Krystyn for Mommy and Me Monday!

Taking care of our skin is really important, and now that winter is over, it's time to get our skin ready for spring and summer.
