Why Priorities Matter

Hello Darlings, As I’m sitting in my office and flipping through photos from my recent family vacation to our beloved St. George Island, I began to think back on the last 8 years. For the past 8 years we’ve made it a tradition to go back twice a year to this little slice of heaven. It has been my retreat from the difficult times and also a highlight when everything was going wonderfully. It has also been 8 years since I’ve started writing here and a year since launching, TryMus Group. So much has changed in those years and I…

W Punta de Mita, Mexico

Hello Darlings, As Charles Bowden once said, “summertime is always the best of what might be.” Where better to escape to for a birthday celebration from the bustle of Toronto than an oasis of jungle with a close friend. Over the years it has become my tradition to escape to a new destination for my birthday. For the past number of years it has been to numerous beautiful W properties all over the world. There’s something about a familiar feeling in an unfamiliar territory. This year, it was Viva la Mexico! This being my second time and Shayla’s first, we were…

Being a good guest is knowing how to put your best qualities on display. From knowing when to back away from the wrong conversation or what kind of flowers to bring…

Ritz Carlton Montreal, Luxury Defined

Hello Darlings, The beauty, history and elegance of Europe is simply calling my name. As much as I would love to put my life on hold and take a month-long European vacation, but sadly, it’s hard to get enough time off with my schedule. Between the meeting, shoots and events the closest that I will get to Europe right now is browsing Instagram or Google Maps. Since Quebec is probably as close to Europe as one can get without leaving the country, I opted for the next best thing: a short trip to Montreal. A city I called once a home and an escape…

Setting 3 Year Goals

Hello Darlings, The day after my 25th birthday I felt like a weight of the world has come crushing down on my shoulders. Not sure what changed within twenty four hours but on that day two years ago it all did. It’s as if the switch went off in my mind and the priorities have shifted or perhaps I finally established some. Within the past two years I have struggled in finding myself and envisioning what I want my life to be. It was during that classic dilemma of “20s are for making mistakes” and that “the 30s are the new 20s”…
