LIQUEFIED

Elodie Parthenay Fashion Blogger Glow Cleanse Smoothies-2

After long weeks of overindulgence (caused by a deadly alignment of Fall + the flu + Daylight Saving Time + Babycakes’ treats), I’m back on track, pursuing the healthy lifestyle that I love. One way for me to feel re-energized and to reboot my relationship with food to a good place is doing a liquid cleanse. No cayenne pepper and hunger pains here: only organic ingredients and healthy nutrients. I told you before about my love of Glow Cleanse, the Montreal company delivering fresh 1-, 2- or 3-day fresh smoothie cleanses right to your door, but what you might not now is that the menu changes every season. Yup, new smoothies every 3 months!
The lovely Tiffany, who owns Glow Cleanse, hooked me up with the brand new Fall menu, and I couldn’t wait to try it. The 12 delicious smoothies kept me satisfied for my 2-day cleanse (even if on the last night I longed for something to chew), especially the new “Opaline Elixir”, a velvety concotion of cashews and avocado. I can’t even describe how heavenly it tastes!

What’s your favorite smoothie recipe? Let me know – I’ll be in the kitchen, blending cashews like a crazy person.

Lately I’ve been trying hard to focus on what Canadian winters have to offer, and not fall prone to my usual reject of dark days and cold hands. The one thing that I’m most excited about? Busting my beloved Theyskens’ Theory coat of the vestibule closet, and draping myself in its soft, comforting warmth. Funny how your perspective can shift with the right incentive.

…AND THAT’S WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING!

“Wait… What do you do exactly for a living?” has been a reoccuring question lately. And for some reason, it always surprises me – I guess I’m just too used to being surrounded by fashion people and magazine geeks. So let me explain quickly what I spend my time doing (I mean, when I’m not playing Zelda/riding around on my motorcycle/rolling on the floor with my dogs).

Officially: I’m the Fashion Editor-in-Chief of Canadian magazine Clin d’oeil.
Theoretically: I’m in charge of establishing the fashion direction of the magazine, and to manage the fashion section as if it was an independent magazine that I was the Editor-in-Chief for.
In practice: It consists in writing (or commissioning then editing) all the fashion features and fashion news, creating shopping pages, kepping on eye on the current trends (whether they’re from the runway or from the streets) and turning them into inspiring content for the readers, and last but not least, conceiving and producting the photoshoots that you’ll find both inside the magazine and on its cover.
tl;dr: it’s as much of a creative position as it is a managing one, it’s nearly as draining as it is rewarding, and each day is different than the next one.

I’ve been doing this for the past 6 months (remember I had gone freelance 2 years ago?), which explains why my posting here has been a little hectic lately. But, to make up for the fact that I haven’t been around as much, here’s a sample of projects that I’ve worked on over the last few months: all “my” covers (because I’m not creating them in a vacuum – I’m lucky enough to collaborate with the BEST team in the world, as well as some artists – photographers, stylists, hair & make up artists – who are out of this world), and some of the editorials that I love the most. Which one is your fave?

Psst- Yup, those are the Dufour-Lapointe sisters  gracing the 3 alternative covers of Clin d’oeil’s current issue (available now on newsstands/on iPad): Maxime in Stella McCartney, Chloé in Denis Gagnon and Justine in Chanel !
