Guide to Ontario Lavender Fields

A bouquet of dried Lavender, could there be anything more fragrant and pretty? Yes, actually. How about ENTIRE FIELDS full of Lavender?! Rows and rows of the gorgeous purple plant in full bloom – it’s probably one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen, and a total Instagrammer’s paradise! It’s been on my bucket list for a while to visit the bountiful Lavender fields in Provence or England. But I never realized that we have so many Lavender fields right here in Ontario! I discovered that there are actually more than 20 Lavender fields within driving distance of Toronto!…

Travel Guide: New Hampshire Highlights in 3 Nights

I’m a city girl at heart. I love the frenetic energy and the convenience of having so many coffee shops and restaurants at your fingertips. When I travel, if I’m not heading to another major city, you can find me on the beach in some place exotic (as you can see from my last travel guide). But, I must admit, there are times when it’s nice to change up the pace and connect with nature – go somewhere where you can’t see directly into your neighbour’s house. A couple weeks ago, I was invited to visit the state of New…

Travel Guide: 4 Tips on How to do St. Barths on a Budget

Visiting St. Barths has been a dream of mine for many years. Call me an elitist, but maybe it has something to do with the fact that it’s one of the most exclusive places on earth, or there’s a Nikki Beach on the island (and it was once one of my lifetime goals to visit all the Nikki Beaches in the world). But let’s be honest. My fiancé and I aren’t made of money; and with a wedding on the horizon, we weren’t looking to set ourselves back. Despite the otherwise hefty price tag, it is possible to visit St….

Eating My Way Across Ontario with Metro – First Stop: The JUNO Awards

Anyone who knows me well knows there are 3 things in life that I love the most (aside from my fiancé and pizza): food, travel, and music. So, when Metro offered to take me on an adventure this past weekend to Ottawa for The JUNO Awards—giving me an opportunity to get a HUGE dose of music, food, and travel all at the same time—I was like, “Hellllllll, yessss!” How Metro is Celebrating Canada’s Sesquicentennial In celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial (which is just a fancy way of saying 150th anniversary), Metro is putting together a series of 7 local events, called…

Our Staycation in the Penthouse Suite at The Thompson Toronto

As if getting to staycation (yes, it is a verb) in a suite at the Thompson Toronto wasn’t cool enough, you can only imagine the look on our faces when the girl at the front desk told us on check-in: “you’ve been upgraded to the Penthouse Suite”! Well, our eyes probably lit up brighter than a Christmas tree! The Thompson Toronto is one of our favourite places in the city and this staycation couldn’t have come at a better time—with a mere 3(ish) months before our wedding and when the last 6(ish) months for me have consisted of day in…

Mexico Travel Diary

I’m not sure if I should call it good timing or just plain old good luck. But I just so happened to join my new firm a couple of months before an all expenses paid firm retreat to Playa Mujeres, Mexico! I really lucked out, since I had no travel plans on the horizon for the rest of the year, and this trip happened just as the travel itch was starting to set in again…HARD! I’m not usually one for vacationing. I prefer to travel. Visiting different cities, taking planes, trains and automobiles, sightseeing, making itineraries, researching accommodations, and discovering…

Windy City Travel Guide

It’s long overdue, but I’m pretty excited to be posting my very first travel guide! It’s kind of ironic that this is my first, considering travel is one of my passions. On average, I take at least one, but often times two, big trips per year. But, with all the developments over the last 6-8 months, like getting engaged and now saving for our wedding, my fiancé and I have barely traveled for the year. Apart from this trip to Chicago, we don’t have any other travel plans on the horizon until next year (which makes me really sad). My fiancé had the opportunity to…
