Akyra Manor, Chiang Mai | Travel Diary

On our Asia adventure we took off from Phuket to explore beautiful Chiang Mai, Thailand. Here we had the absolute pleasure of staying at a gorgeous hotel called the Akyra Manor, Chiang Mai. This is a boutique style hotel, but is definitely not lacking in luxury. The hotel is very hip, and definitely a place to be seen at happy hour. Their rooftop Rise Bar is maybe the most stunning rooftop I’ve ever been able to enjoy a cocktail (or two) on! *This is saying a lot considering I spend most of my summer evenings rooftop hopping back at home.

Baba Beach Club | Travel Diary

Our second accommodation on our adventure in Phuket was at the glamorous and relaxing Baba Beach Club, Phuket. I was blown away by the kindness and hospitality on this property. We checked into our Villa and were so taken back at how modern, spacious, and beautiful the design was. This beach club embodies true luxury. To make it even better, it’s conveniently located just a quick 20 minute ride from the Phuket International Airport.

I have been lucky enough to travel quite a fair bit in my lifetime, but this year taking on a trip to Asia was my most exciting adventure yet. The journey from Canada to Phuket, Thailand takes roughly 18 hours. Our journey started with 15 hour flight to Hong Kong and then 3 hours onward to Phuket.

Staying in Paris | The Hotel Edition

You know what they say, Paris is always a good idea…

I put so much time, love, and effort into finding the perfect places to rest my head while staying over seas. Last week I took my first real trip to Europe with my boyfriend. The trip was my birthday present to him for his 21st which made me want to take all the little details into consideration!

Hot Spots – Los Angeles

In February I took off to Los Angeles for my reading week (aka a week you get off from university to “read” – but no one actually does that) so my mom and I headed out west for an adventure!

Miami | Hidden Gems

Wynwood Walls – Urban Graffiti Art Miami 

This past weekend I got to take off to Miami for a quick getaway with my boyfriend. We spent a lot of time at the beach, and pool trying to soak up as much sunshine as possible. Don’t forget I live in the Great White North, (otherwise known as Canada), and honey it is COLD. All this to say, even though we spent a lot of time eating, shopping, and tanning…aka the things I do best in this world – we did go on some adventures and found the dopest neighbourhood in Miami. If you find yourself near South Beach or in Miami anytime soon, I HIGHLY recommend you check out Wynwood. This neighbourhood is so cute, trendy, and chic. It is a neighbourhood that has recently been restored, and is now a total hot spot for celebrities, and tourists alike. Every building is covered in beautiful murals and graffiti. The entire neighbourhood is gorgeous and alive with art! The opportunity for photo shoots here are truly endless…lol. There are so many local coffee shops (my boyfriend and I went to Miam Cafe for breakfast and had some excellent sandwiches), and there are also adorable shops. We even found a pop-up Daniel Wellington store where they were handing out cute balloons! Win.

BUT what totally got me hooked on this area were two notable spots…

Toronto | Me & My City

Toronto, the beautiful and exciting city that I call home. I am obsessed with Toronto. I think it is such a vibrant and diverse city. I grew up here, so it has always felt like home, but I moved downtown to the heart of it all when I started going to Ryerson University.
