Miami Look Book

Miami is known primarily for two things beautiful beaches & beautiful people “real sweet faces” as Will Smith once so eloquently put it. While for North-Easterner’s such as myself it’s the perfect vacation getaway- given our proximity, it’s also a nerve wracking endeavour to always be looking your best while on vacation. It’s a city which is truly all about what you’re wearing, where you’re going & who you’ll be seen there with. I’ve been travelling to Miami my entire life & I feel pretty well acquainted with the vibe in America’s favourite party city. While I was there for two weeks in Febuary, I curated a look book of sorts for those of you travelling to the beach for the first time.

The 15 Most Instagrammable Spots in NYC

It’s been a year to the week that my boyfriend David moved to New York City on a project.  With the current situation being that there is snow on the ground in April in Toronto it’s safe to say I am horribly nostalgic for New York City summer (something I have not been shy to wax poetically about on Instagram stories).  I fell absolutely head over heels for New York while flying back and forth all last summer and I am dying to go back.  As I don’t have any current travel plans to go there, I’ve decided to make…

Thanksgiving’s Coming on the 4th of July

This year my nation celebrated it’s 150th year (yes, Canada is a baby).  Since January we have been celebrating this milestone.  Our birthday falls on July 1st, so I actually ended up spending this monumental anniversary south of the border in NYC for 4th of July, while last year I was in Boston for Canada Day.  David recently moved from Brooklyn to Manhattan and we got to watch the fireworks and get a view of the Empire State Building (lit up for 4th of July in red, white & blue and on Canada Day in red & white) from his…

Bright Lights, Long Nights

At the risk of making a few enemies, I have long considered New York City overrated.  Not to say that I didn’t appreciate the city, but have always thought it garnered more attention than it deserved, considering all the amazing and beautiful places I have seen (& those I have yet to see).  Despite this, I find myself falling more and more in love with this city with each visit.  Each time I come back I feel more at home and more comfortable navigating the subway and different neighbourhoods.  I’m finally beginning to see through the rose-coloured glasses of the…

The City

I took advantage of the May 24 long weekend in Canada to visit my boyfriend, David in NYC.  I had been to the city twice previously, my last visit was about a year and a half ago and before that I had been in my final year of high school.  This weekend was, I feel a much more intimate visit between myself and the city.  My first visit was packed with sight-seeing, dictated by the school chaperons.  My second visit was very brief, only two days in the city before moving on to the nation’s capitol.  I really enjoyed this…
