FOTD, Cafe Olimpico and Forza Azzurri!!!

Like any self-respecting European, when Euro Cup time rolls around I drop everything and go watch the game. Especially during the last week when the tension mounts up and the quarter-finals start.
Of course I took my BFF, (Italian and proud of it), both major Azzurri fans, headed to Cafe Olimpico, on St. Viateur, installed ourselves inside and watched the England-Italy game. The atmosphere was amazing. The place was packed with people, the espresso was as delicious as ever, the baristas fun and happy... ah, I felt like home.

Best espresso in town. Strong flavour and thick crema, just the way I like it.

Lisa had the idea of using MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack to "tattoo" ourselves! Genius! It didn't rub off the whole day yet it washed away beautifully with a bit of olive oil.

Lisa chalked her hair blue...

As for make-up, I'm just wearing Annabelle BB cream (can you tell I'm obsessed with it?) MAC Fluidline in Wholesome, Nars Orgasm Blush and MAC MSF in Petticoat.
I kept the lips natural with Clarins Lip Perfector, my go-to lipgloss these days.

Lisa's nails. What a tribute :)

Seriously, watching a game at Olimpico is something you must experience as a Montrealer. Having their coffee is routine for me at this point. I always leave the place happy and jittery.
We'll be back Thursday, and hopefully Sunday for the big final.
