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.

February in Instagram! ✴

February was a BIG month for me! I *finally* got to go to Cuba over my winter reading week and I’m still reeling from the experience. As you may know, Cuba’s WiFi situation is a bit weird, you pay for cards that allow you to log in at WiFi hotspots. There are hotspots pretty much everywhere: restaurants, hotels, downtown areas, etc., so it’s not completely unmanageable, my sister had WiFi for most of the trip, but I decided to just let it go for the week I was there. As a result, there’s a big gap in time and content on my Instagram for February… whoops! Friendly reminder that my goal this year is to caption Insta pics with lyrics from songs that fit with them.
*note captions run from most recent to least recent, top to bottom, left to right*
‘the first time in the darkest little paradise’ its true isn’t it? It was my first day and firs time in Cuba, an island paradise ✴ ‘are you ready for it?’ pretty much just are you ready for all my cuba pics ✴ this wasn’t captioned with lyrics bc it was a #AD!!! I do #ADs now! who am I????
‘I didn’t mean it + you didn’t see it’ V-day outfit post plus I was listening to a lot of rep that week ✴  ‘everybody’s got somebody, I just want to be alone’ Niall lyrics to promote my valentines day bake sale, very festive, no? ✴ I used this picture to enter a contest and also bc I love it but there were no lyrics used
#AD pt 1 ✴  ‘is this enough or are we just burning ashes’ my Meet Jo Totes promo post also I LOVE this song ✴  ‘its 2 o’clock on the edge of the morning’ I rewatched sing street after getting into UCD bc I wanted to make myself sad
‘we’re running with wolves into the wild again’ aka its 2018 and I have no clue where the heck ill be in 3 months time ✴  my photo submission for the #GoOverseas scholarship to Ireland ✴  my last post from my January in Instagram.
So this time I broke it down by groups of threes, is that better than the big lump of pictures I did for January? I think I like it better but let me know what you think! How did your February go? On one hand I’m so happy that we’re closer to Spring but on the other my allergies are already acting up and I’m out of school with no jobs lined up in less than two months now so………..!
Tune in next month to see a heck of a lot more of Cuba! It was INCREDIBLE! I’m working on a little something for it but I want it to be just right so you’ll have to sit back and wait for awhile. PS – what are you guys watching on Netflix lately? I’ve been bingewatching tons of foreign shows because holy heck! Europe knows good TV! I recommend Babylon Berlin and Cable Girls (if you haven’t already seen Dark, if not – prioritize that!)

Travel | Phoenix Park, Dublin

As you may know if you’re following me on social media, over my fall reading week I paid a visit to my friend in Dublin. One of the top places on my list of things to do and see was Phoenix Park because hello??? Deer are my favourite animals! If you don’t know what Phoenix Park is, it’s basically Dublin’s version of Central Park – except it’s about 10 times as big, and is home to about a million different places to adventure and explore. I personally just wanted to go visit the deer, but we could have easily spent the entire day there walking around. If I lived in Dublin, I would absolutely be going there for picnic dates. So much potential for adorableness. Anyways! Here are some of the pictures we got, sorry for not-so-great quality, my iPhone 6’s battery is DONE, and I forgot a memory card for my camera so we used my friend’s iPhone 5 (I think?!) I think they still turned out really nicely though!

Lifestyle | Shopping for Glasses Online

I recently purchased a second pair of glasses for ‘back to school’ – basically, I bought my original set of glasses from my optometry office, they were hella expensive and hella generic and I wanted something more distinctive but I didn’t want to spend another $400. (yikes – thank god for coverage am I right?!) Like all things that I want to buy for cheap, I looked online. I found a few different eye glasses websites but decided to go with ‘Eye Buy Direct’ for a few reasons….

Explore Thunder Bay | Kakabeka Falls

Spring has SPRUNG! I think it’s about time I hit you all with another post about my hometown. I’ve been trying to slowly showcase some of my favourite places around town – you can check out my other posts & videos here. 😊

Last night Tyler and I decided to head out to Kakabeka Falls for a little date night. Kakabeka Falls is about 20-30 minutes outside of Thunder Bay driving out on Oliver Rd past Murillo. It’s an adorable little township with the absolute best waterfalls in Northern Ontario. The waterfalls are lined with really well kept trails and sight seeing spots.

There’s a little bridge – one for walking and one for driving – that goes across the waterfalls to more trails on the opposite side. Kakabeka Falls is also home to some favourite hiking spots in town. You can do a short hike to a place called “Little Falls” where there’s a very tall but low-flow waterfall (perfect for adventuring on!) Since it was already around 7pm we didn’t do any hiking but I’ll certainly be going back soon 😊…
