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…

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…

For me it all started with immigrating to Canada when I was 10 years old and learning English as fast as I could. Being able to belong was all that mattered to…

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. She was covering the experience for TheYouthSociety.com — a women’s lifestyle site I co-found in 2014— and you can read all about it here.  After a few martinis and making new friends, we set…

W Montreal Renovation

Hello Darlings,  A few months back in a city I used to call home, a few of us met together for a celebration. For years W hotels has been my home away from home while travelling, and in particular the one in Montreal. Prior to moving to the city,  W Montreal and I have spent many weekends together. After a year or so of being away from Montreal, it was a pleasure to be back and to celebrate the grand renovation. A handful of media from North America was invited on The Double Take trip to experience not only the property but…
