Hyatt Ziva Cancun

A few weeks ago I received a text from a girlfriend asking if I could do two weeks in Australia with her on a whim. Andddd this is why we are friends! I told her my big vacation budget for the year had been spent. So, we settled on a long weekend in Cancun with…

Hôtel Saint-Marc, Paris

Do your hotel requirements include a velvet furniture playground, highly-lacquered honor bar, vast breakfast options, Art Deco accents, and a location in a quiet are of a city in turmoil? Then, let me introduce you to the charming, Hôtel Saint-Marc in the second arrondissement. Green Velvet: The breakfast room was simple, but still instagramable. Teal…

Andaz London

A few weeks ago, mum and I commenced the London portion of our European tour with a stay at the Andaz London- Liverpool Street. We left Paris a day early feeling uncomfortable by about everything going on in that city at the moment. I called Andaz to add a night to the room and they…

Her Majesty’s Pleasure

Her Majesty’s Pleasure. Can you think of the better name for a bar/spa establishment?? Especially after my sis told customs that she was in Toronto for pleasure. Well, then! Pleasure we must find! And that we did. The super girly looking bar lured us in from the street while we were waiting for our dinner…

Gusto 101

Two weeks of eating out every meal in Toronto was certainly an aggressive endeavor, but hey someone had to do it. After honestly, many a mediocre meal, the final night my sis and I dined at the often recommended Gusto 101, which was absolutely fantastic. I’m not sure if they take online reservations, but they…

Thompson Toronto

After a few days in Mexico, I stopped home, swapped suitcases and headed to Toronto for two (very long) weeks. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to see my bed before. Or cook. Or nap. Or read. Or anything at my house (except unpack). I spent a chunk of my time at the…

Best Regift Ever: 353 Degrees North

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope that everyone had a safe and charming holiday, surrounded by loved ones. As usual, lots of travel in my end of the world, this time to see some far-flung extended family. We went out to dinner, so I don’t even have one, tiny little recipe to share with you this year. Though,…

Restaurant Review: Cuca

With the Bali trip finally winding down, Julie and I decided that we’d better splurge on our last night and have a truly memorable meal. We really hadn’t spent much on wine or food this trip at all, so it felt like it was time. Cuca next to the Belmond Jimbaran Puri was in our…

Jimbaran

“I do not stay at the Intercontinental. Everything I got is not a rental.” – Drake Usually a lady after Drake’s advice, if not heart (did you hear he’s been buying up Birkins for his one day wife?? Right here, Drake!), I had to disagree with his Intercontinental mantra. While I previously agreed with Drake,…

Ubud Adventures

Ubud definitely out perfomred the Canggu and Seminyak areas for us. We out performed as well. Feels like we did so much in the four days we had there. Here’s a glimpse in photos. Day 1:  I was riding solo as my diseased friend stayed back at Origin to sleep and take a bath. My…

Origin Ubud

A few days later we headed toward Ubud via a VERY nauseating ninety minute cab ride. Everyone said Ubud would just charm our pants off; we couldn’t wait. Our hotel, Origin Ubud, was a very nice start to pants charming. Open only for about a year and with just a handful of rooms, it was…
