We caught up with our good friend, Roslyn whose wellness and self-care regime is always on point and who also happens to always be effortlessly chic. She showed us around her dreamy Montreal apartment and neighbourhood, where we chatted about style and DIY beauty routines.

What are some choices that you make (or aspire to make) in your life to live more sustainably?
I really like  finding a good garage sale ! Finding beautiful pieces and original items as opposed to paying more for an item that is essentially an updated version of the piece you can find at a good garage sale or thrift shop is much more satisfying . Plus you know you won't see anyone else wearing it! It is something I want to continue to do more of.

What's your personal style philosophy?
Dress for how you feel ... Or want to feel. I would say I have two: comfy - stick to basics, or I like really feminine classic  looks that make me feel strong and confident !

Whats your Systeme de Valeurs? (code of ethics and values that you try to live your life by)
I think since the first time I heard the golden rule "do onto others as you would have others done onto you" it really stuck with me and I try to live by this as much as possible !

What's one possession that you could not live without?
Omggggg that's so tough. I have a few, but hair conditioner or a leave-in is something I can't live without . It brings my curls back to life!!

Word on the street is you're really into natural beauty and haircare. What's your go-to DIY beauty and / or hair remedy?
DIY for hair is definitely an Aztec clay hair mask I make at home !!! The best remedy to bring curls to life !! 20 mins in this mask and you have perfect defined curls !!! I also really like making homemade flax seed gel !!!
