Coming Soon…

The last few weeks of my life have been a whirlwind of emotions and excitement. As of June 28th, I am an engaged woman, and as of a week ago, the banquet hall deposit is down and I am set to marry my best friend on July 1st 2018!

Of course the rollercoaster must come down after going up, and it’s also been a tough time working too many jobs and having to give up on a few freelance projects I had planned with White Umbrella Media and the #mynewgirlgang project. Continue reading Coming Soon…

How To Ruin a Tour, But Leave A Great Impression

If you’ve been keeping up on Instagram and Twitter, you know we took a trip down to Las Vegas about a month ago and had the opportunity to escape the city to see the Grand Canyon in Arizona for a day. It was great to finally experience The Strip, see the zombies sitting in casinos at 6:00am (still, or already?), drink a Fat Tuesday while walking down the street, make $40 off of $10 at a Roulette table (at our hotel, Caesar’s Palace), get a tan by the pool, and take every risky photo possible at the Grand Canyon.

Though my Instagram feed would imply that the trip was perfect from start to finish (isn’t that the point?), there was definitely a hiccup. Continue reading How To Ruin a Tour, But Leave A Great Impression

things to keep in mind when booking your beach vacation

Being a little bit of a beach addict, I can’t help but take off down south as soon as I get the chance. It may sound crazy, but sometimes I actually prefer the liberty of taking an all-inclusive vacation over an adventurous trip elsewhere. You literally lie on a beach all day reading books, and not having a single worry. Don’t get me wrong, a euro-trip is amazing, but there is so much preparation that goes into it, and then so much you want to accomplish during the trip, that it doesn’t feel much like a vacation at all (which isn’t a bad thing either!).

why I will NEVER book with Expedia again

I have a lot of experience with booking travel plans due to my past competitive dancing career. I was literally heading to Toronto Pearson Airport twice a month, whether to fly out to Calgary to compete for a weekend, or a 2-week trip around the world for training and world championships. I’ve been through it all. And along the way, I’ve tried a lot of the 3rd party travel sites. Last year I had a less than pleasant experience with Cheap-O-Air, but surprisingly, my recent experience with Expedia takes the cake. Continue reading why I will NEVER book with Expedia again

travel: hotel vs. airbnb

During our 17-day trip to Europe, we had the opportunity to stay in both hotels and also in an airbnb listing. If you are not familiar with airbnb, it’s a website designed to help you find apartments to rent out wherever you go, in a safe, certified way. You get options of renting out a room, or a full place to yourself. Although I probably don’t have nearly enough airbnb experience to judge it so quickly, I have enough travel and life experience to make some conclusions. Continue reading travel: hotel vs. airbnb

Amsterdam: Van Gogh museum

When you think of Amsterdam you usually think of Dam Square, perhaps the coffee shops, Heineken beer, and of course the Rijksmuseum showcasing the city’s well-known “I amsterdam” sign. But low and behold, just around the corner are a few other museums, one of which is the Van Gogh museum. With it’s newly renovated entrance, it’s quite the sight from the very first moment.
