Morocco Travel Diaries: 10 Things To Do in Marrakech

Marrakech or Marrakesh, however you spell it, it’s a world of a difference from North America. I definitely wouldn’t recommend Morocco to the traveler unaware, or someone who’s just dipping their feet into the travel world because you definitely need to be comfortable with yourself, strange environments, different cultures, and easily adaptable. Truth be told, it’s a wonderous country with so much to discover, but it took me quite awhile to get settled in and comfortable with my settings before I felt that I could explore inhibited.

That being said, I have a phenomenal experience (and will be recapping it in a travel diary soon!), but wanted to highlight my top 10 must-dos for any future travelers that are considering Morocco as a destination.

With all of the traveling that I’ve been doing lately, I found that it was best to sit out this season’s New York Fashion Week in exchange for some downtime with Kobe and my friends. One of my friends who was house and pet sitting for us while P and I were away jokingly mentioned that she’s been living in my place more this month than I have been, and although I know that it was only a joke, it really hit home (no pun intended) in regards to how little time I’ve been spending in Toronto.

3 Weddings; 3 Dresses

3 Weddings; 3 Dresses

We’re past Labour Day, which essentially means that summer is over, but that doesn’t mean that wedding season is even close to being over! It’s crazy how long wedding season lasts for (May – October), and I’ve had the pleasure of attending quite a few over this summer already that I figured, why not share some of the fantastic dresses that I’ve worn throughout the summer? Essentially 3 weddings, and 3 dresses. Hopefully to inspire you the next time that you attend a wedding.

This will be for anyone who’s already been to their fair share of weddings and have run out of ideas of what to wear, all the way to the first time wedding guest. Trust me, inspiration runs thin sometimes when all I want to wear is a cute white summer dress, but I shouldn’t be upstaging the bride.

Staying Up All Night at the Thompson with Origins

Last week, I finally did something that I was in dire need of for a long time – a staycation. As a marketer and blogger, I’m literally working 24/7. When most people get to wrap up work at 5 and head out to hang with their friends, I rotate from my 9-5 to my 5-9. I’ve never been one to stop working since lack of productivity leaves me feeling anxious. Though this may appear to be a positive trait for some, I sometimes feel like it’s a curse. I’m always left hunting for the next thing and I never give my body the rest and relaxation it deserves. So when Origins approached me to join them on a staycation at the Thompson Hotel, I knew that naturally I deserved it!

I’ve spent the last couple of months making a concerted effort to integrate more colour into my life. I have to say that it’s definitely freeing! Sure, I still gravitate towards my neutrals, but it’s been really nice to be able to now pick from other colours in my closet besides just black, white, beiges, and browns. I won’t lie though and say that I’m now wearing every colour under the rainbow because I definitely am not. I’ve recently only begun to incorporate pinks, reds, and florals into my attire and I fully blame my blogger friends for it! Everytime I’m around Tee or Camilla, they’re wearing the cutest floral dresses and I’m left with serious FOMO due to my lack-of-colour of a closet. Thus, inspired to start wearing more colour and florals. Trust me, it’s a breath of fresh air.
