My Girls

Written by: Marina Bastarache Montreal - April 19, 2018

As I wrote in my very first article, I wanted to create a blog that’s true to who I am one that’s honest, real, and showcases a girl gang of true friends who are all passionate about their art and the topics they write about. I know you can find their bios on my website, but I wanted to take the time to personally introduce them to you.


 ARIANE – Fashion

Ari is my stylist and confidant. We’ve been friends since we were 12 and she has played such an important role in my life. Ari is a HUGE part of me and I can’t imagine a career without her by my side. She brings me joy, love, and reassurance. She makes me stronger and better in every possible way. (Plus, she has two adorable baby boys that I love dearly).

 ÉLOÏSE – Wellness

Elo and I go way back to our waitressing days. Elo is sensitive, big hearted, and loves themed dinner parties. Like most girls in their twenties, her head is swimming with unanswered questions and she’s looking for her purpose. Just wait until you read her posts, she writes BEAUTIFULLY.

 JADE – Travel

Jade is my favourite travel partner EVER. We’ve spent so much time together that she’s become like a sister to me. My love for her is unconditional. She’s always willing to try new things, visit new places, and meet new people. It’s thanks to her that I’ve had the greatest and most beautiful travel adventures.

 SHANA – Cooking

Shana is short for Shana banana. Friend, super mom, freaking trophy wife, and a crazy talented dancer to boot. Added bonus: she’s a whiz in the kitchen (just talking about her skills is making me hungry). She’s one of the 10 most inspiring women in my life. It’s simple, EVERYONE loves Shana banana!

 VANESSA – Culture

If you’ve never heard Vanessa sing, you’re missing out. She has one of the most beautiful voices I’ve ever heard (no joke). She’s incredibly kind and gives so much to the people she loves (often a little too much). She also has a talent for life – she sings, dances, acts, writes, AND she’s funny as hell!

 SOPHIE – Beauty

Sophie is my makeup artist and hairstylist on all of my projects. If I could have her with me 24/7, I would. She has an eye for beauty, is super trendy, and everyone in Quebec wants to hire her, which shows how amazing she is. But most importantly, she’s nice, she listens, and she cares. She brings me homemade soup and goes out to buy me coffee. Plus, we love to talk about our doggies (hi Carmen and Cannelle!).

I hope you’ll learn to love them as much as I do. They are more than just beautiful, they are also strong, smart, brave, and overall extraordinary.

Cheers to my women.

Cheers to Nana.
