My Go-To Travel Outfit | Hiking in Ireland

Function Over Fashion: a minimalist approach to styling while travelling

I am NOT someone who overpacks when they travel. I travel on budget airlines which charge you even for a hand luggage carry on. On my latest adventure to the West coast of Ireland to do some hiking, I packed everything into my small and beloved Lululemon backpack. It fits perfectly under the seat of the airplane. Bear in mind that the trip was four nights, five days, and included city days and countryside hiking days. I needed a LOT of variety when it came to my clothes… Or so you would think. I managed to find basically one outfit that worked under all circumstances. Admittedly I did not look fantastic and chic in the cities, but it was good enough!

Traveling in Viñales, Cuba

Hola amigas! As promised, here is my second Cuba vlog AND! It’s edited in VSCO! Colour grading on my amateur youtube channel?! What?! I love it. What do you think? Did I go overboard? Do you like it better? I don’t know!!! Either way, come along for a little day of adventuring around Viñales and see everything the beautiful valley has to offer! I’m honestly SO happy we decided to travel here to stay for a few days rather than doing a day trip. It’s easily one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been in my entire life. I can’t believe how skeptical I was now, I thought it would be quite off the beaten track and hard to navigate but it was SO travel-friendly. I can’t say enough good things about it, so just watch the video and see for yourself!

Quick Travel Tips!

Our Airbnb in Viñales arranged a collective taxi to take us to and from Viñales. It’s well over an hour drive, and this made it a lot more affordable. At the same time, you sacrifice the advantages you’d get with a regular taxi. Regular taxis are new and comfortable, collective taxis are old, loud and don’t have A/C. Not a dealbreaker for us, but maybe for you. 

Our Airbnb hosts also helped arrange some things for us to do. When we arrived we immediately whisked off for a horseback tour of the valley. It was absolutely stunning and our tour guide – their family friend – Rollo, helped us get a good understanding of the area. 

Airbnb hosts are your everything in Cuba! Read reviews to pick ones that will help you plan.

Phoenix Park, Dublin Travel Diaries

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. Here’s my little travel diary from Phoenix Park, Dublin!…

Fika Cafe In Kensington Market, Toronto

fika x6

Fika is just one of the cute little cafes I ended up visiting while in Toronto way back in 2016. I loved so much that I had to share. I originally found the Fika Cafe in Kensington Market on a Buzzfeed article. Then, I visited in 2016, and now I try to go back anytime I’m in Toronto. It’s in a great location, right in the heart of Kensington Market! You can head there for breakfast and then explore the market or vice versa. Kensington Market just keeps expanding, and expanding each time I go. Luckily, there’s always somewhere new to explore. If you’re visiting Toronto for the first time, Fika Cafe in Kensington Market is a must!…

Thunder Bay’s Botanical Conservatory

Friends! One of my favourite places is Thunder Bay’s Botanical Conservatory. It’s been awhile since I posted something non-beauty related, and I was just looking through my pictures and came across the some from here in the conservatory! It’s an absolute oasis in the city. Whenever I’m there I feel like I’m in another world. I’m Alice in Wonderland. It’s perfect.
