One of my favourite places to be in the world? It might be surprising, but it’s right here at home. Toronto and the surrounding area is the place I grew up, where a lot of my family lives, and where nearly all of my friends are (except for a few stragglers and travellers that I don’t get to see half as often as I’d like to). It’s also the place of some of my favourite traditions, including the Annual Fata Skate.
Loving up my city a little bit more before I head out to the United Kingdom on Sunday evening! ✈️ I love the CN Tower views, the bustle of downtown, and the Christmas shopping that I can’t seem to stop doing, but I’m more than happily trading it in for a week to see the lovely UK! 🇬🇧

Having lived in the beautiful city of Toronto for my entire life, it’s an understatement to say that my love of food has led me to discover the city’s most swoon-worthy eateries. Particularly during my stints of downtown life (read: university and my past job in telecommunications), I was easily able to try a bunch of different restaurants around the city of Toronto, and quickly began to take mental notes of which were the ones that I should be returning to time and time again.
Whether you’re a Torontonian yourself, or coming to the city for a visit, here is a list of my go-to places in the city for both food and dessert:
Recently, I’ve found many of my fellow bloggers have been asking me about my go-to travel communities for building a following, networking with other creatives, and gaining engagement. The more I think about it (and discuss it), the more I’ve been noticing that there are several favourite communities that I turn to.
Getting stuck in a dead-end job is one of the most frustrating things in the world. Sadly, it’s also something that happens to just about everyone at some point in their lives. Of course, just because you’re stuck in a job that you don’t care about right now doesn’t mean that this is the way things are always going to be; however, if you really do want to find a more fulfilling or interesting career, then the only way to do that is to start putting in the right amount of effort. With that in mind, here are some steps that I took, and you can too, to find yourself in a more satisfying and fulfilling career:
With the positive feedback on my bucket list post on Asia last week, I’ve decided to publish two travel posts this week! Today’s post features another bucket list destination of mine: the beautiful state of Colorado.
After the amazing time I had adventuring through Alberta last summer, I’ve been obsessing over finding my next physically-demanding vacation. Colorado is one of the great year-round travel destinations that North America has to offer; lovers of the great outdoors will be right at home here with plenty of both wintertime and summertime adventurous pursuits — all set in stunning scenery, from the towering Rocky Mountains to the high desert of the Colorado Plateau. Rent a car, and you can enjoy countless magical drives through the countryside as you pass through the mountain towns. So, let’s run through just a few of the attractions you can visit and the sights to see in this beautiful part of the world.
Unfortunately, I’ve not yet been able to find my way to Asia in my travels, but throughout the week, I’ve been thinking a lot about finding my way over there in the next couple of years. Of course, this means that I’ve found myself searching through all of the amazing things to do in this part of the world, particularly in South East Asia. Whether you’re looking for a family beach holiday or a rugged backpacking adventure, you’re certain to find what you’re looking for in this part of the beautiful continent. Here are just a few reasons to explore this region of the world.
