Candice Maddy Fridman is a travel and lifestyle writer and freelance editor who lives in Montreal with her peke Henry II.
What I Do, Job-wise: Travel + write + edit + create.
What I Do, Fun-wise: Hang out along the canal with Henry the dog, drink wine with friends, browse markets (both food and flea), learn hip hop moves via YouTube.
My Motto: Make it beautiful.
My Anti-Motto: Proceed with caution.
The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Was either Christopher Reeve as Superman or Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell – the chronology is inexact – followed shortly by Marlon Brando in Streetcar.
My “celebs to make out with” list: Mads Mikkelsen, Nicolas Cazalé, Vincent Cassel, Joaquin Phoenix.
The Most Played Song On My iTunes: For You by Angus and Julia Stone.
Last Book I Read: How Should a Person Be by Sheila Heti – it was just as good the second time around.
My Most Worn Item of Clothing: A pale cream chiffon shirtdress with a swing hem and thousands of pearl and flower appliqués. There isn’t an occasion it won’t rise to, or a first date it hasn’t been on.
Beauty Products That I Hoard: Becca Luminizer in Opal, Dermalogica Skinperfect Primer Spf30, Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector and an arsenal of brow grooming products (it takes a village!)
I smell like: Jo Malone Orange Blossom + Tom Ford Neroli Portofino + Acqua di Parma Arancia di Capri (summer) / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille or Diptyque L’Ombre dans l’eau (winter).
