Virgin Hotels San Fransisco

If you follow me here (or anywhere), you’ll know that there are very few things in this life that I love more than travelling around this beautiful world (my dog, snarky pop culture commentary, and my boyfriend). As part of my travels, I’ve been fortunate enough to stay at some pretty amazing hotels around the world. But very few have…

Living the Butler Life

It’s back to life, back to reality in my world but the past four days have been the absolute best. We arrived at Sandals Montego Bay on Thursday afternoon, after passing through customs we were met by our butler who brought us beer and had a car ready to take us to the resort. PRIVATE CAR AND A BUTLER?! From…

When Travel Plans Change

As any frequent traveller knows you can’t guarantee anything and plans are often broken or at least altered, it’s all part of the fun. So when I received a call from my friends at Sandals Resorts letting us know that our trip was changing to a new location, I decided to go with it. I’m going on an epic trip…

Sandals Here I Come!

It’s no secret that I have been dreaming of flying away to the Bahamas to meet the swimming pigs! I even suggested that people start calling me ‘Bahama Mama’ which didn’t quite catch on (sad!). But was has been a kind of a secret, if you haven’t been paying attention to my Facebook and Twitter, ย is that I’m heading to…

All you can eat & Drink… for the Children

Ten rock star chefs. Ten rock star local brewers. One exciting night featuring UNLIMITED food and drink samples. With all proceeds going to War Child. So, basically, I’m asking you to drink for the children. Your desire for delicious local brews paired with lip-smacking creations designed by some of the best chefs in Toronto will help children in war-affected communities…

About That ATV Accident

Now that I’m finally back to work and a regular schedule (not drinking mojitos every day) and my wounds have healed (mostly) I think I’m ready to talk about the ATV accident, in more detail. You might think rolling an ATV and ending up in a Costa Rican hospital would ruin a vacation, you would be wrong. On our third…

Sloth Sanctuary Part 1

We’ve finally arrived, after an ATV accident (more on that later), a flight on a tiny prop plane, and a 4 hour drive through the rainforest we have arrived. We are at the Sloth Sanctuary. I’ve been dreaming about coming here since Vice first introduced me to this magical place… In fact when I interviewed for my current job I…

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…
