Vinales, Cuba

I’m an avid user of Airbnb. I’ve stayed in Airbnbs big and small all over the world (or at least in North America and Scotland…) and I’ve found that they provide so many luxuries that you can’t find at a hotel or hostel! It bums me out that so many people are too nervous to try out Airbnb because I feel like you’re missing out on so many cool opportunities! That being said, I totally understand being apprehensive about it. I started out renting an Airbnb (entire apartment) with a friend, then alone, then staying in a single rented room with a friend… and I’m still apprehensive about staying in a single rented room alone! But these are the reasons I would 110% consider trying it out, if you haven’t already:…

March in Instagram! ✴

I’m sure you know the drill by now but in case you don’t – each month I share a little ‘behind the scenes’ of my Instagram. This year all my Instagram captions are lyrics to a song that relates/has the right vibe to go with the picture. You know when you feel a connection between music and a memory or a place or a feeling? I thought I would stick to lyrics so I could ~maybe~ better communicate the feeling of the picture.
Are you guys even READY for all of the Cuba pics? I have ONE more to post tomorrow and then my theme is officially moving on. I’m already sad about it.

Cuba Travels | Thunder Bay to Havana to Viñales

Hola amigas! I’m sure by now you VERY well know that I was recently on a trip to Cuba, aka one of the BEST things I’ve ever done. I was seriously already mentally planning my trip back when we were driving around the island. I initially planned on doing a LOT of filming while I was there but a big ol’ whack in the face of anxiety at the beginning of my trip put me off, and once I was back up to normal I was just to enamoured with the place to be bothered – sorry! I DID manage to vlog pretty much the whole time, I knew I would kick myself afterwards if I hadn’t. This is my FIRST Cuba Vlog, where I’m traveling from home (Thunder Bay) to Havana, spending the night there, and then going to Viñales. For a LOT of traveling, I still think it’s pretty good! Most of what you see here is Old Havana and our tour around the Viñales Valley – GORGEOUS place. It NEEDS to be on your Bucket List.

 
I’m proud of the editing but I JUST discovered that you can use VSCO to edit videos now, so I’ll FINALLY have some colour gradient editing on the upcoming Cuba vlogs! If you’re interested in travelling off the beaten path in Cuba, here’s an article I wrote called ‘Beyond the Beaches: A guide to exploring off-resort Cuba‘.

A New Take on Traditional

This is by far my favourite outfit post that I’ve ever done. A few months ago I (finally) booked a trip to Cuba after years of pining to go, but even before the flight was booked I picked up this dress – THE dress. It has so many hints of traditional Spanish women’s fashion that it breaths life into the outfit and just emanates an ambience of Spanish style. It’s one of those pieces that you buy because it gives you a feeling and a vision, and I just knew it would be perfect for my trip to Cuba (and future travels!!) Are you ready for it? …
