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‘.

At A Crossroads | Life Update

I first got into the blogger scene because I loved reading about and learning about other peoples lives. (I’m super nosy that way) But in all seriousness, it was like getting a chance to meet a Taylor Swift song in person. You felt like you were seeing yourself in the people you were following, and you connected with them in the same way you connect with the lyrics in a T-Swift song after a heartbreak. The personal feel to a blog is something I feel like blogging has lost touch with. Up until now, ArcticSabrina has been pretty bleak on th personal front, apart from a few very sparsely uploaded personal posts, you guys don’t really get to know me. Maybe it’s super vain that I think you might like to, but whatever. At the very least these posts can be little check points in the story of me. My life right now is at a huge crossroads, it’s something I’ve been spending a lot of time working through, thinking about, and talking about, so I thought it would be the perfect time to let you guys in.

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? …

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????
IMG_0668
‘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
IMG_0667.jpg
#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
IMG_0666
‘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!)

VLOG: Trinity Bellwoods and Tattoos

I know it’s technically blogmas but hear me out okay! This is a video I made from my trip to Toronto back in October and it’s really cute and makes me laugh a lot so I wanted to share it with you.
It shows some of my favourite places in Toronto and has a lil bit of the Harry Styles concert, a lil bit of a tattoo and so many other funny memories!

Moments Behind the Blog Day 6:
Behind this video specifically: when we were at Screemers (a haunted fair) and we went into the very first haunted house the very first scare scared my friend SO BADLY that she jumped fully into the air. We were linked at our arms and she fully jumped with her feet out to the side to defend herself. It killed me and I spent the rest of the walk through just dying with laughter instead of being scared by things, it still makes me laugh.
Your question of the day: Have you ever been to Toronto? Have you been anywhere in Canada?! Thoughts?

A New York City Getaway

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

At the very end of the winter holidays, my sisters, my mom and I jetted off to New York City to kickstart the new year. New York City holds a soft spot in all of our hearts I think. After years of mixing and matching on our trips there we finally all made it out together. We only spent three and a half days there, but they were – like always – jam packed. One day we walked over 25 km. That’s right, over 25 km in a city where there’s a cab on every corner – never again….
