CAROLINE DHAVERNAS Actress~ On Lipstick, Surf & Oysters

CAROLINE DHAVERNAS~I recently interviewed my lovely friend Caroline.You know her from Hannibal & Mary Kills People. We worked together ten years ago on Off the Map in Hawaii and became forever friends. We've had countless adventures traveling, hiking, surfing and laughing until our bellies ache. Here she shares with us her lipstick obsession, Montreal hangouts and the art of Zen~surfing.

1. CURRENT OBSESSIONS?                                                                                     

How beautiful a cloud of smoke looks....

2. MOST COVETED PRODUCTS FROM DAYDREAMERS collective?

Denise and I have spent so much time together in Hawaii so I have to say her SUMMER collection for all of our beach essentials.

3. DESERT ISLAND DESIRES?
A live Cuban band made of hot salsa dancing Cubans.

4. HAIR DO?
The ocean air is the best tool! Nothing to be done! Kind of perfect for the day when I will be stuck on the desert island with the hot Cubans, cause you know, no electricity and all...

5. BEAUTY RITUAL?                                                                                              

Hot pink lips for hiking days with Denise. 

6. ON THE MENU? 
East Coast (represent!) oysters. Apparently my mother craved them when she was pregnant with me. That's probably when the love story started. I could eat oysters every day and never get bored with them.

7. SCENT MEMORY? 
As a kid, I loved to draw with a purple violet scented crayon and whenever I smell that flower in a perfume or cosmetics, it takes me straight back to those blissful moments where nothing else existed in the world but you, the paper and the exciting possibilities of color. Scent is the most intriguing and mysterious sense.

8. ALTER EGO?
Professional champagne drinker.

9. ROAD TRIP? 
Driving from Montreal to the Magdalen Islands (Îles de la Madeleine). I'm usually not big on road trips since sitting still drives me bonkers, but this drive is so beautiful and includes ferries from which you can see whales, so what the heck, a little madness never killed anyone. 

10. BUCKET LIST? 
French kissing with an amazing kisser. When that chemistry lights up, holy smokes, that's what life is about.

11. ZEN ZONE?
Thinking about surfing.

12. COLOR INSPIRATION? 
Periwinkle blue and burgundy, side by side, makes the hairs on my arms stand up like an encore.

13. BEAUTY SPLURGE?
 I just bought a crazy Chanel lipstick, Rouge Allure Ink in 212 Metallic purple

14. BOOKSHELF? 

Chroniques du hasard by Elena Ferrante, an Italian writer.

15. HOTEL CRUSH?

Salt in Greece, on Milos Island.

16. LOCAL GUIDE~MONTREAL

La Binerie: For breakfast or brunch. An institution in Montreal. The restaurant has been around for 81 years and offers a unique experience of Quebec's culture and typical comfort food.
Les Rapides Park: a migratory bird sanctuary in the city by the water. A beautiful walk in the spring to see mother bird and her younglings on the river.
Gypsy: Café/bar. I go there to read scripts and work on my computer. I love the restaurant's design and the food is great. 
❥Byblos: Iranian café, amazing food, filled with light. Feta and dill scambled eggs with fresh mint tea...YUM! They also have a trunk filled with toys for kids in the back: very fun and practical.
L'Express: another institution in Montreal, classical French bistro. The quality and service are impeccable.
Le Mousso: One of the best tables in Montreal.
