Travel Essentials: Packing for a Ski Trip

Hello Darlings, For a girl who likes to change her outfits as often as her mind becomes a problem when travelling. Planning for a sunshine getaway is a breeze, just a few bikinis, sundresses and sandals and et voila you’re packed for fun in the sun. On another hand, packing for a ski vacation is more like a frost bite. It is a slow and brutal process that takes much elimination and in my case, upgrade in luggage size.

W South Beach with my Amex SPG Card

Hello Darlings, Somewhere between the leaves falling and the first snow fall, was my fantastic vacation to South Beach.  Thanks to my trusty Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express, I was able to purchase my flight and hotel stay with my hard earned Starpoints. I took off from Toronto Pearson Airport to spend five days in paradise enjoying the warm ocean breeze and the sandy shoreline with one of my close girlfriends.

South Beach is like a Disneyland but for adults, it is an absolute playground in the midst of palms trees and ocean breeze.  In the midst of the Art Deco stunners, South Beach (Sobe) is a winter playground for dreamers and skeptics alike. By day absorb the beauty of the turquoise waters. In the afternoons stroll through the art deco buildings to admire SoBe’s golden era…

My SPG Amex Card: The Faster Way From ‘I Wish’ to ‘I’…

Hello Darlings,  No matter how many times I travel, I still feel that same rush of exhilaration each time I pack my bags and board a plane. Nothing compares to the experiences that we gain while travelling. Immersing yourself in a new and sometimes exotic culture or experience provides a deeper understanding of oneself that cannot be attained at home. As Anaïs Nin said, “We travel, some of us forever, to keep other states, other lives, other souls.” Travel is a big part of my life, even if it is usually for business. Amongst all of the things that I…
