I love this time of the year for watching tons and tons of horror / suspense / thriller / all around moody films. They are my absolute favourites (as I've shared before herehere and here)! David Fincher is one of the very best contemporary directors in the genre in my opinion. I love his whole filmography but have a special soft spot in my heart for Zodiac. Based on a true story, the film weaves a sophisticate yet creepy tale around the quest for the identity of the Zodiac killer, a serial murderer in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1960's and 70's. Jake Gyllenhaal is flawless as the lead character of this unconventional investigation and author of the book the film is based on, Robert Graysmith. A must see if, like me, your favourite part of Halloween is scary movies!

I haven't blogged in a long long time because things have been a bit... chaotic. Ok, fine: very chaotic. It's so much easier to blog only the good moments and happy memories. However real life has ups and downs, and the past 3 months have been amongst the most challenging of my life.

See... my husband and I are currently separated. It took me 90 days to be able to simply write this down here. Being married has been an amazing journey in my life so far but challenges have inspired us to take time apart and re-assess. It's been a few months full of heartbreak, sleepless nights and way too much chocolate, but I am finally seeing the light, very very slowly. For the first time this week, I am feeling a little like myself again. And not the "myself" family and friends want me to be, but the one I am truly, deeply in my soul.

Summer is my favorite season and was there to cheer me up every morning, let me swim in countless pools, lakes and rivers and shun it's warm sunlight right into my heart. I think one day, once the heartbreak has subdued, I will be able to look at this Summer as a crossroad in my life, a turning point before many wonderful things could cross my path. Hard adventures that made me stronger. And for that they are more than worth being remembered forever. Virginie XO



I recently had the opportunity to spend two weeks in Montreal for my new gig and got to celebrate my birthday in my hometown with close friends. There were a lot of reasons to celebrate and it felt like a really whimsical time, sparklers included! A lot of magical things happened, of the magnitude of things that shift the future forever, and I feel beyond blessed. Makes getting older a bit smoother.

I am also so very grateful for the warm welcome the Montreal Rodeo FX team had in store for me. I mean: have you seen this birthday installation? I hope I remember this time forever. Virginie XO



Surpriiiiise! I am joining the Rodeo FX team and will be working on AMAZING film and television projects from their Quebec city studio. W O W !! These photos are from the studio inauguration a few months ago, when we were invited to pose with the Emmy the team won for Outstanding VFX in television for Game of Thrones. To say I was geeking out is a major understatement! I'm a huge fan of the show and very grateful for the opportunity to join this studio. Cheers to new adventures! Virginie XO



Please meet my new favorite: Dr. Mindy Lahiri!  She is so cool and kind of the cutest. She is a bit... unconventional at first, but it's surprising in a good way to discover her to be so liberated, unapologetic and politically incorrect. SO refreshing in a TV world full of super beautiful people and really high pitched skinny girls! I cannot wait for season 4 to hit Netflix Canada on February 22. Virginie XO
