The Perfect Weekend Itinerary For Visiting Prince Edward County

It’s very hard to scroll through my Instagram these days without stumbling on a photo of Prince Edward County. Could it be because of the gastronomical delight, wineries, the antique shops or the art galleries? I must say it really piqued my curiosity. I have lived in Ontario for ages but never visited that side of the province.

A few days ago, we packed and headed to Prince Edward County for the perfect family getaway. Yes, friends, the County is not only for lovebirds and wine lovers, there are plenty of activities available for families. It only took us a few minutes of driving around to create an endless bucket list of things to do as a family. To help you plan your next visit, I’ve put together the perfect weekend itinerary to exploring and experiencing all the good things the County has to offer. Grab your tea, wine, coffee or whatever you have in hands because this is going to be a long and detailed post. Read More »

Apple Picking At Chudleigh’s Farm

I am starting to feel that little chill in the air. That could only mean one thing- sweater weather is here.  You know what else that means? Fun Fall activities are near. Grab your baskets and prepare to be amazed by the scenery as I take you to a  fun filled day at Chudleigh’s Farm. What a difference a year makes! Last year when we went apple picking, the kids were so much smaller. I never knew that documenting our little life through this blog would bring me so much joy.

Toronto’s Newest Water Park: Wet’n’wild

If you’re looking for a place to get wet and keep the kids busy this summer, you must visit Toronto’s newest water park,  Wet’n’Wild. A place for the entire family to swim, drink, eat and swim some more. Those of you who follow my Insta Stories must have had a glimpse of our fun day at the park. When it comes to amusement parks, whether it’s indoor or outdoor water parks are my favorite.  First, because there is nothing better than being in the water on a hot summer day. Second, because I am not a big fan of thrill rides. Insert all day spent at the lazy river. Read More »

Where To eat In Toronto: Kellys Landing

The Landing Cure

I love discovering new restaurants to eat at in the city. The food scene in Toronto is one of the best in the world.There is always somewhere new to go, something new to try. Last week, I was invited to taste the delicious food and drinks at Kellys Landing Bar Grill Hub located just a few feet away from the Union Station in downtown Toronto. Such a convenient spot for those of us who live outside of the city. The proximity of the restaurant to the Air Canada Centre and Rogers Centre also makes it the perfect place to grab a meal or enjoy pre-or-post-game entertainment. Read More »

A WEEKEND GETAWAY IN GREY COUNTY

Sometimes the best adventures and most beautiful places are just a few hours away from home. Most days, I dream about long walks on sandy beaches in the Caribbean or a day exploring the souks of Marrakech.  The truth is, right here in our backyard and just a few hours away from Toronto, lies an amazing place called Grey County.

Let’s be honest, traveling overseas or down south can be expensive and with the low Canadian dollar, it makes sense to stay close to home. If you’ve never been to this side of Ontario, I am sure you’ll consider a little weekend getaway after reading today’s post. Read More »

Family Friendly Resort in Jamaica: Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa

Jamaica! Jamaica! Jamaica! You were everything I imagined and then some. I just came back from an amazing kidcation trip with my family thanks to Sunwing vacations and the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa in Jamaica.

First of all, if Jamaica is not on your short list for your next family vacation, do yourself a favor and add it, your kids will thank you later.The kids were a little jealous when I took my trip to Punta Cana with my friend back in March. So when this kidcation opportunity knocked they could not be happier. Read More »

12 Black Travel Blogger Accounts To Follow On Instragram

I am always looking for inspiration. Instagram has been one of those places where I found the most amazing fashionistas, decoristas and travelistas. As I mentioned in previous posts traveling and taking care of our home are two of my priorities this year. I follow quite a few travel bloggers on Instagram and Snapchat. The fact that I am taken from country to country all from the comfort of my home is unbelievable. What was life before Snapchat? Out of all those accounts I follow, only a few of them are black travel bloggers. I thought it would be fun to go on a quest to find more of them. Read More »

Escape to the Dominican Republic with Sunwing Vacations

Dress available here

A few weeks ago my friend Mo from Miss Lion Hunter and I escaped to an amazing trip to the Dominican Republic with Sunwing Vacations. I don’t remember the last time I’ve had a girlfriend getaway, so this opportunity was definitely welcomed with open arms. I caught the travel bug at a young age since my mother worked for the tourism board of Mali and traveled around the world almost half of the year. Though I only have pictures to remember those days, I feel the best when I am away exploring other cultures or simply lying on the beach getting my melanin on point. Read More »

DIY Cover Up With Pom Poms ( kaftan)

How to make a pom pom cover-up kaftan- Chic Punta Cana all inclusive all adult resort

I few weeks before my trip to Punta Cana With Sunwing vacations, I started looking around for cover ups. I wanted a fun and colorful one that I could wear both in and out of the beach. Sadly, the ones that really caught my eyes did not come in my size. I am sure you know the rest of the story. Frustration and anger started to get the best of me. To think that in 2017 we still can’t find what we love when it comes to clothing is unbelievable. With my minimal sewing skills, I made one for myself and this is the result. It was inspired by this Pom-pom Trim Beach Cover-up that Merrick Art made a few years back. Check out her post for all the instructions on how to make your own cover up. Feel free to also check these stores on Etsy  for some options. Read More »
