Portugal Travel Diaries: 10 Things to do in Lisbon

Happy Tuesday! You guys seemed to really enjoy my last post on top 10 things to do in Marrakech, so I figured why not do one for Lisbon as well? We spent quite a bit of time in Portugal split between Lisbon, Porto, and Sintra that I might just do a specific post for each city. I feel like I may regret this once I start and find out that I have to write all of this 3 times over, but who knows, maybe I’ll enjoy it!

When we went on our trip a couple of weeks ago, we kicked off the first 2/3 of it in Portugal, and instantly fell in love with the country. We’re already making a list of all the places that we want to hit up the next time that we go back (the goal is in the next few years), and I’m so excited – probably even more than our next destination! Hopefully this speaks volumes of the phenomenal country, because there are literally no words to describe how much we love Portugal!

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.

I Took a Piece of #NYFW Home With me Thanks to Club Monaco

I Took a Piece of #NYFW Home With me Thanks to Club Monaco

On me: Top, Skirt, Coat – Club Monaco / Bag – Prada (similar here) / Shoes – Cartel Footwear (similar here)
On Aney: Turtleneck, Vest, Skirt – Club Monaco / Bag – Chloe / Shoes – Zara (similar here)

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.

Calgary Travel Diary: Stampeding with GMC

Dress – Muche et Muchette / Boots – Cartel / Bandana – Zara / Hat – Smithbilt Hats

A few weeks ago, P and I had the pleasure of going to the Calgary Stampede for the first time ever. Thanks to GMC for taking us there, we had the opportunity of experiencing the rodeo first hand, and exploring the wildnerness of Calgary. If you remember a couple months back, towards the beginning of this year, I went with a bunch of girls to Banff to check out the view. Albeit being wintertime, the landscape was unbelievably beautiful. I made a solemn promise to myself that I would eventually be back in the summer just to see how beautiful the views are unobstructed by snow.

Top 10 Favourite Coffee Shops of Toronto

Top 10 Favourite Coffee Shops of Toronto

I took a little bit of a hiatus from blogging and went to Mexico over the past week. Oddly enough I didn’t drink much coffee while there, which is completely out of my character. Coming back to Toronto signified the necessity of coffee in my daily routine and I realized that although I’ve visited many different cafes across the city, I’ve never once really shared my opinions or my favourites with you – my readers. And it doesn’t help that I constantly get asked which ones are my favourite. The problem is that whenever I’m put on the spot, I can’t really come up with which ones I like the best. So why not have it all in one place that I can easily refer back to for anyone who ever wants to know?

So without further ado, here are my top 10 favourite coffee shops in Toronto – and in no particular order, I simply organized them alphabetically for easier sorting. Who knows, if I’m not too lazy, maybe I’ll start ranking my favourite cafes in relation to areas of the city as well! Because although there are only 10 here, there are definitely a lot more that I’d highly recommend that you visit!
