Fading Bloodlines Expedition to Myanmar

Last year I became involved in a project that fascinated me from the moment I heard about it. I was told there was an ancient form of art performed in the country of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) for centuries that was about to go extinct. The artistic medium? The tattoed faces of the women in…

Mexican Hacienda Yaxcopoil

If there is one thing I always try to seek out, it’s unique travel experiences that are specific to that region. While researching for my trip through the Yucatan Peninsula, I became obsessed with the idea of staying at a Mexican Hacienda – essentially an estate (typically that had once been a plantation in its heyday) that…

How to Have a Girls’ Workation Weekend

  When you just need to get away from it all, but don’t have the time for travel days. When you want to bounce ideas off someone who just gets it. When you could really use some girl time.   What do you do when you find yourself needing all the above? You book a…

Visit Valladolid, Mexico

The first time I visited Valladolid, Mexico, was just to pass through. Only a few minutes of driving along some side streets was enough to make us vow to come back. I tacked on a couple days to the end of our Yucatan road trip to explore the cute colonial city further. I won’t lie,…

Pretty in Pink | Merida, Mexico

If there is a pink wall I will find it. So when an entirely pink hotel pops up in my Mexican trip planning search, I was sold. The Rosas & Xocolate Hotel in Merida, Mexico was enough of a destination to turn my originally-planned all-beach vacation into a road trip just to make a pitstop at…

Guide to Granada Nicaragua

Perched between the dormant Mombacho volcano and the fresh waters of Lake Nicaragua, the city of Granada is rich in colonial heritage, colourful architecture, great restaurants and bars and due to it being a relatively new travel destination, it will also have you feeling as if you stepped back in time. To begin our adventure we…

The Top of the Rock NYC

Although I had been up to the Top of the Rock in NYC before, it never disappoints. The 360 degree view over Manhatten is unbeatable, especially with the Chrysler building front and centre. This time around, I pre-purchased tickets for the opening time slot in an effort to beat the crowds, and we had a…

Chunky Cable Knit Vest in West Village

I have a love/hate relationship with chunky cable knit sweaters. As Fall is in full swing (and Winter if you’re in Canada!), women are walking around looking incredibly chic in cozy knit sweaters. While a good chunky knit always catches my eye folded on a store display’s shelf, I am constantly disappointed every time I try…

Wool Trench in NYC & Spontaneous Plans

One evening walking back to our hotel in NYC, we came across the most magnificent balloon backdrop decorating the entire facade of a cafe. I stopped to ask the woman setting it up if this was a grand opening of some sort given the elaborate display of balloons. She said it was for a fashion…

Postcard from NYC

NYC is truly The City That Never Sleeps. After a whirlwind long weekend in The Big Apple, arriving back to our downtown-Toronto neighbourhood felt like a quiet sleepy town in comparison. But that is part of what makes it so wonderful, isn’t it? The constant commotion, the energy, the sheer chaos. It’s definitely a place that warrants…
