Pura Vida

When I left for Greece in May, I promised myself that I would travel more, I spent too long focusing on work and not enough on seeing the world. In September I starting planning my next great adventure, Costa Rica 2016. We leave on January 1st, not a bad way to start the new year if you ask me. Pura…

The Stylist Suite

I love movies. Like, a lot. Every year on Christmas Day, my mum, my brother, and I go see a movie, it’s our tradition. Movies are the perfect escape from a rainy day, a bad break-up, a fight with your best friend, or a day with no other plans. One of my favourite things about living in Toronto is that…

Roosh V Counsels Followers to Break the Law

That turned out to be Astro Palace, a small piece of paradise in Fira, Santorini. Originally I had…

Mykonos – Little Venice & Paradise Beach

  When we arrived in Mykonos we decided to take a little walk, although there’s no such thing as a little walk in a country wil so many hills, we wandered down to the sea where we discovered Little Venice. Little Venice is a grouping of cafes against the sea wall, in some places you can put your feet up on…
