I’ve been making the round here in Montreal. Checking in old contacts and chatting up new ones. I stopped by the offices of 1milk2sugars PR, lead by Priya Chopra, who you may remember was Girl of the Week back in 2010. The team of “Sugars” (as they so cutely call themselves), are situated in an open and airy loft on Prince street. I sat down with each Sugar to find out more about their personal style and loves.
My style is… I lived in Milan for a while, so I’m really into black. I love basics with a touch of bling. I find that so classic, it goes with every look.
Favourite shoes… Rachel Roy flats with a bit of bling. I got them in New York, they’re comfortable, fashionable and affordable.
Beauty essential… I’m a big hair products person. The one that really works for me is Pureology oil. It’s natural and it has coconut.
Currently listening to… Usher’s Scream, I also love Chris Brown and hip hop.
Summer drink of choice… Processo all the way, all the time. And my one coffee in the morning, a latte.

Xina Cowan, Account Manager
My style is… Very casual, sometimes boho, sometimes rocker. My style has changed a lot over the years. Comfort is really important especially in the summertime. I use to be a compulsive shopper, now I pick and choose.
Favourite pairs of shoes… All Saints boots I got in Miami back in March. I got a killer deal, they were reduced from $350 to $130.
My beauty essential… I use the oil-free NARS primer.
Currently listening too… Sam Roberts. I’m also really into the 80’s right now, Duran Duran and Simple Minds.
Summer drink of choice… Mojito.

Catherine Woron, Sales Manager
My personal style is… Very classic and minimalistic. My favourite colour , if it is a colour is black. I then like to accentuate it with a splash of something like a great lipstick colour.
Favourite shoes… Jeffrey Campbell black leather wedges, they’re comfortable and you can wear them with jeans or a cute dress.
Beauty essential… Erno Lazlo Shake-It Tinted Treatment, it’s like a base and a toner. I put it on before my makeup. It’s a primer with a bit of a tint.
Currently listening to… I’ve been only listening to artists from the UK. I’m obsessed with Girl in the Mirror by Cheryl Cole.
Summer drink of choice… Gin and tonic.

Patricia Albano, Social Media Manager
My style is… Feminine and pretty classic. I do like to keep on trend, when I opt for the trendier in the moment looks, it’s mostly through accessories.
Favourite shoes in your closet… A pair of stunning Badgley Mischka heels, I had to practice walking for a good month before I could pull them off. They’re charcoal, satin with this beautiful gem stone on each side, ruched on the top going towards the crystal. I’ve worn them once and now they just sit in my closet and I like to look at them.
Beauty Essential… GM Collin, I use their entire skincare line. It’s from Montreal. I love their moisturizer, face wash and toner.
Currently istening to… A lot of Coldplay. I’m going to see them in concert. I’ve seen them twice and have been blasting all their CD’s.
Summer drinks choice… The classic mojito or raspberry mojito. And a sour apricot brandy, if you can find someone who makes this. It’s like a cool take on an amaretto sour, instead they use apricot brandy and add a bit of sour to it.
