Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Mexico

Hello Darlings, Dozens of outfits found their way to my bed and favourite sandals scattered themselves all over the bedroom floor. Although it was about 1:30AM, I was just then pulling out my suitcase to pack for a 6AM Toronto to Cancun Interjet flight that day. With Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” blaring from my Beats Pill and a glass of Amarone in hand, I was a in blissful state knowing that just few hours from now I’ll be on a beach. It wasn’t so much the beach that induced the type of excitement that I also experienced the first time…

Becoming a Single Working Dog Mom

Hello Darlings, A single working dog mom – yours truly! As much as I despise that term, it does categorize me fairy well. It took me a year of coming to terms with that title and not feeling like a complete failure. And after two weeks of dog sitting a second pup recently, I finally came to realize that I’ve got this. It’s a full adjustment having to look after someone outside of myself and they say that a millennial just can’t. Prior to welcoming Luna into my life, a favourite line from just about everyone was, “Say good- bye…

BirdO, LOT42

Hello Darlings, In my past life, art was a prominent part of it. While it may feel as if ages have gone by, it was only in 2011 that I stepped my foot into a dream opportunity — Sotheby’s. As I walked into their Toronto office, the five years that I spent at University of Toronto specializing in Art History and Architecture seemed worth it. For a while it was. In fact so much that before ever getting there I was planning on going to Sotheby’s Institute of Art to complete a Masters Degree in Art Business. Little did I…

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Hello Darlings, It was one of those shaky landings but the unfolding view never ceases to amaze. That’s the thing about New York it always has a way of surprising you regardless of how familiar it may be. Just two weeks prior,  I was on the same tarmac of Newark. This time I was back to attend the iconic Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, for the first time. To say that I was excited would be an understatement. Well, excited and with a touch of nerves. How can a girl not be? Mingling with the likes of Nicole Kidman and Kendall Jenner is…

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…
