W Montreal Double Take

Hello Darlings,  Upon checking into my room and a quick soak, I was ready for a night on the town! With an itinerary filled with adventure, I was as excited as a little kid on a Christmas morning. The first event on the list was a meet and greet at Bartini in the lobby of W.  Luckily, my closet friend and a colleague Miya joined me on this trip.

Memories For Life with Palm Bay

Hello Darlings, During the last few days of summer came a trip that usually wraps up all the memories of warm weather adventures!  While we all wish that the summer never come to an end but then again, some things are just out of our hands. To bid summer farewell and celebrate the great moments that it did brings us, the girls and I like to get away together for a few days. Over the years it has become somewhat of a ritual especially as we got older and life took its course. While in our teenage years where each one…
