Lark Hotels: 21 Broad

During elementary school, one of my favorite articles of clothing was my worn-in Nantucket white tee. This prized possession was gifted to me following one of parent’s many sailing trips. At the time, I didn’t have the slightest clue where this mystical island was located (my geography knowledge was quite limited at that age) but I always dreamt of visiting Nantucket one day.

The super soft and eventually holey tee was a scenic photo of  a beach with colorful umbrellas and boats sailing the horizon. The image above could have not been more identical to my old tee (minus a few sailboats). When I spotted these colorful umbrellas at Galley Beach, not only did I appreciate the simplicity of the scenery but I was immediately brought back to my aspiration of visiting Nantucket (let’s just say the nostalgia was at an all time high)! read more

A 3 Day Guide To Nantucket

Nantucket has always been a summer destination I have dreamt of visiting one day. I’ve built this charming New England island up in my head year after year and I can now excitedly confirm that it exceeded all my expectations … and then some.

Last week, my friend Kaylee (@theblondielocks) and I had the opportunity to visit the island once and for all. With only three short days on the island, we made sure to soak in all that it had to offer. Whether it was dinning at the most talked about restaurants around town or visiting the most instagramable locations, we hit the ground running the second our plane landed. read more

Travel Diary: Boston Edition

Growing up on the east coast of Canada, driving down the Atlantic Coast through New England was not an uncommon adventure in my family. With pit stops along the way, including an array of quaint towns in Maine and New Hampshire, I always looked forward to the final stop at Boston.

There is something so inclusive about Boston that makes you feel a part of the spirit as soon as you step off the plane or in my case growing up, the car. Whether it is the excitement amongst the locals after a recent win by the Bruins, Red Sox, Patriots or Celtics (could this city be any more stocked with sport teams?) or the feeling that anything is possible after visiting Harvard University or the MIT campus across the river in Cambridge, Boston always leaves me with an excitement that is difficult to replicate in other cities. read more

The Canyon Suites

The winters are long and cold here in Canada so the thought that I would be escaping the great north to spend a weekend in the dry heat this spring not only warmed my heart all winter long … it warmed my bones. Although I have visited the desert once prior, I can’t remember too many details as I was so young. However, what I do remember quite clearly (at such a young age), was that I was going to re-visit as an adult to take advantage of what a weekend in the desert truly had to offer. read more

The Rosseau: Mind & Body

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of escaping the hustle and bustle of Toronto and headed to the beautiful JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka. Although I knew heading up north to cottage country would be relaxing, I didn’t predict I would find such calmness while engaging in recreational activities.

I must admit, I am not usually adventurous or activity-oriented on a weekend holiday. However, laying low can sometimes descend into endless hours of scrolling social media and finishing those loose ends from work. Therefore, I wanted to make sure my time at The Rosseau wasn’t jam packed yet was still a positive distraction from my every day commitments. read more
