    My Ultimate Travel Bucket List

    50 of the top places and experiences I have on my travel bucket list It has been a while since I put together a post and I thought why not start with something light and inspirational. The initial reason that I started my blog was because I would often get travel questions from friends. I used to just share notes from my phone, but I thought if my friends were interested, my travel tips could appeal to a wider audience as well. I get so hyped when someone goes and visits somewhere I suggested and falls in love with it. I tend to be a planner, so I used to…

    Finding the Perfect Fit: A Guide to Bras and Bathing Suits for Busty Women

    Finding bras and bikinis has always been challenging for me. I remember in middle school when all the girls got to look at cute padded bras, my only option was something that a grandma would wear. Getting cute bralettes at La Senza girl was not an option for me. It was very frustrating. Department stores were really the only place that I could find something in my size that didn’t have loads of padding. Bathing suits were just as challenging. I would actually wear one-piece bathing suits the majority of the time because they had full coverage (and this was before one-piece bathing suits were cute). Luckily there are way…

    Embracing the Mid-30s

    Navigating Life’s Transitions at 35 It has literally been years since I have written a blog post. The last post I did was a 2021 round-up similar to this post, where I reviewed all the lessons I learned. So why now? My attention span is at an all-time low, I have a constant need to multi-task and my best friend reminded me the main reason I started my blog was to share all of my travel experiences. Nothing brings me more joy than introducing my friends to new restaurants or offering them travel advice; I get second-hand excitement for them. So, you have heard it here first, my Nashville post…

    Yearly Roundup & Goal Setting for 2022

    I am sharing all my wins and lessons from 2021. And for 2022 the goals that I set and my new years resolutions. 2021 Roundup What a year 2021 it has been. I have mixed emotions, the year felt endless, yet gone in a flash! In 2020 I tried something different and I put together a list of some of my favorite personal development tools. Mostly because I was disappointed at the lack of “goals” I actually achieved. If I had to choose a word to describe 2020, it would be restorative. It was time to slow down, do less, and learn to nest at home. How Far I Have…

    Kelowna Beer Crawl

    A Walkable Brewery Tour of Downtown Kelowna There is nothing I enjoy more than a well-thought-out plan! It only seemed fitting that for my weekend visit to Kelowna I map out a brewery tour route. I went to high school in Kelowna and I can’t believe how much it has grown! It has been a pleasant surprise to see how it has transformed over the years; Breweries, cideries, new wineries, and restaurants have been popping up all over, almost giving me big city vibes. There are quite a few options for guided brewery tours in Kelowna, if I was a tourist I may consider booking one so that I could…

    Summer Essentials: Add these to your shopping cart

    Everything you need to make the most of the summer season. Summer is by far my favourite season, it is no secret that I live for the beach. Most weekends I spend the majority of my time outside working on my tan. As a seasoned summer lover, I did a round-up of all my essentials, especially because outside adventures seem to be the main source of entertainment right now. My Summer Essentials Hexagonal Flat Lens Sunglasses A good dupe for the Ray-Ban Hexagonal Flat Lenses with a way nicer price tag. These retail for under $20, are super compact and are polarized! I keep these in my purse for afternoons…

    Home Tour – My Living Room

    The coziest room in my home, after my bedroom, of course. A look into my bohemian-inspired living room. This is typical of me, but after I finished decorating my living room, all I kept thinking is how nice it would be to have been if I had gone with an all-white theme and stuck with neutral colours. I know, so annoying. I can never make up my mind. I think I am too messy for a white couch though. I am the first to admit that I tend to go for design over function, but for a living room, I really wanted it to be comfortable, functional, and have a…

    No Make-Up Look

    I have been trying to ditch the makeup, purely out of laziness. Like most people, working from home has created an endless routine of sports bras, messy buns, and no makeup. When I have to leave the house, I really have to push myself to get ready. I hate the feeling of removing mascara from my eyelashes at the end of the day or looking in the mirror, only to discover that crusty crumbs of my mascara are now dusting my undereyes. Determining which occassions garner a prepped face was becoming very challening. I decided that a scaled back, low maintenance routine was needed. Don’t get me wrong, I love…

    The Perfect Bar Cart

    Bar Cart Styling and Bar Cart Essentials for Your Next Cocktail Night When I first started re-organizing my living room, I came to the conclusion that I had just enough room to put a bar cart in my dining area. Considering 2020 had me doing most of my entertaining from home, it seemed like a necessary progression. To be completely transparent, I am in no way an expert at crafting cocktails so this is my beginners guide to stocking your at home bar, while also making it look aesthtically pleasing. As a newbie to the cocktail world, I did extensive research on all the bar cart essentials. My starting off…

    How to Build a Skincare Routine

    Beyond cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, what other active ingredients do you need for your skin? A Complete Guide on How to build a day and nighttime skincare regime. My skincare routine consists of buying whatever fad products are in the market and then waiting for them to die out. JLo has me fully convinced there is a fountain of youth and I know it is not filled with olive oil. My approach has been mostly trial and error, but I do get quite a few questions on my Instagram about my skincare routine and I have really been limping through it. I took it upon myself to scour the internet…
