What To Consider Before Booking a Hotel

Hello Darlings, Spending a few weeks traveling Europe was everything I had hoped for – no drama – just tons of fun and adventure! It was leading up to the trip that presented the challenge. Choosing destinations was a breeze, but accomodations not so much. What qualities does one hunt for in a hotel given the unlimited options in an unknown country? Our route was Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and Czech Republic. Plenty of places to discover and each one with it’s own distinct character. Creating an itinerary for every country was rather easy with the help of my Lonely Planet…

Ste Anne’s Spa, Countryside Escape

Hello Darlings, “Busy” has become the new “I’m well, thank you” to every “how are you”. In fact, a recent study in the Journal of Consumer Research argues that a busy and overworked lifestyle, rather than a leisurely one, has become the new aspirational status symbol. Who cares about beachfront vacations, when you can work overtime!? Complaining about being busy and working all the time has become an incredibly widespread phenomenon, and one that is impossible to sustain. I’ve learned it the hard way. You cannot perform at your best by being constantly stressed. It’s important to me to maintain a…

Porsche Camp4 Canada

Hello Darlings, This winter has been a snowy one and not very kind to drivers. The other day as I was driving home in yet another snow storm when I encountered black ice. Despite having winter tires and a four wheel drive car, I quickly began to lose control. Luckily, despite the momentary panic I knew exactly how to respond. It came as an instinct. My instincts followed the very steps I learned back at Porsche’s Camp4 Canada as a guest of Porsche  Centre Oakville.When a movement is repeated over time, a long-term muscle memory is created. It allows you to perform the task…

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…

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…
