Montréal

A travel post on Montreal was long overdue on the blog considering it's a city I've visited many times on family trips, work trips or as you've recently come to know, impromptu winter adventures. Without a doubt though, our recent trip there was notably the most special. So I thought I'd share six "Montreal Musts" while imprints …

Outfit Ideas for a Tropical Wedding 

We recently attended our friends’ destination wedding in beautiful Punta Cana. The funny thing about this occasion is that I used to work in the destination wedding industry for almost four years, consulting the travel plans of hundreds of destination weddings yet this was my first time attending one as a guest. So I was …

Punta Cana

I miss filling in the "Passport" section of my blog. When I first started this blog, sharing my highlights and photos from my trip to Turkey was my favourite type of content to share. As my blog evolved, I nurtured other categories I equally enjoyed, like my event styling, DIY projects, beauty reviews and recently, …

The Beaches of Lebanon

I’ll never forget the reaction of my Grade 4 teacher when I showed her a photo of my recent trip to Lebanon during our Show & Tell session. The photo showed me standing in front of the iconic Hard Rock Cafe guitar, in Beirut. I was so excited to pass this photo around to show …

Ehden

I think it’s common to feel a sense of pride when we talk about our country of origin or birthplace, especially when we no longer live there. Reminiscing about our hometown ties us to our identity and our culture, and explains a lot about who we are, no matter how detached we may be from …

Gallery of Vintage Travel Posters

The bare and beige wall above our couch desperately needed some colour. After browsing uninspiring wall art in home decor stores and online, we had the idea of creating our own little gallery of travel posters. Not just any travel posters - we wanted our gallery to represent the destinations we've ventured off to in …

Istanbul

We spent a total of six nights in Istanbul. It was quite the magical journey back in history. A perfect blend of and new, East and West. We spent most of our time in Old Istanbul, Sultanahmet. We visited the Old Sook, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (the Blue Mosque) and the Hagia Sophia Museum, which …

The Turquoise Seas of Antalya

Antalya is easy to fall in love with. As much I would go back to Istanbul in a heartbeat, I would have to say that my favourite part of our Turkish trip was our three relaxing days in Antalya. Situated in the south of Turkey along the Mediterranean sea, Antalya is known for its beaches …

The Ancient Ruins of Ephesus

The historical and cultural richness of Turkey is well apparent when you visit Ephesus, the ancient Greek-turned-Roman city situated in western Turkey. Its ruins and colosseum brings you back thousand of years BC and almost makes you feel like you're on the movie set of Helen of Troy. Well organized and affordable, this is a …

Our Turkish Hamam Experience

Any woman loves being treated to a spa, so when you visit a country that is historically and culturally renown for their traditional spas, there is no missing out on this must-do activity. Hamams have been around for centuries since the era of the Ottoman Empire and have become a staple representation of the luxuriousness …
