Travel Wish list

The husband taking photos while in Cancun,Mexico in 2015

Do you have a travel wish list ? Every year I make a long list of places I would love to visit with my family or by myself. Unfortunately, I don’t make it to every place on my list due to lack of time and or money.Traveling and decorating our home are two things I am planning to invest and focus on this year.Today, I’m sharing a few travel destinations I would love to visit in 2017. The list includes cities from around the world and within Canada. I must confess that going through airports is not my fave thing to do, especially with recent events.  Last year was fantastic; we were able to go to New York, Mont Tremblant, Great Wolf Lodge as a family. I went to Dubai with my sister, and Boston to visit my family. Not bad for a year.

Plus size resort wear

Are you headed on a little winter getaway on a tropical island ? With the weather reaching well over -10 degrees these days,  everyone is headed somewhere tropical. I have no vacation plans so far , however that won’t stop me from daydreaming.“On vacation, you can wear all the colorful and casual clothing that you like, but you must always be elegant” Christian Dior. I could not agree more with the above statement. Vacation is the time to let loose, but still  look chic. Read More »

Great Wolf Lodge – Grand Wolf Suite review

 Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls rooms (Grand Wolf Suite) see more on mycurvesandcurls.com

Over the holidays, we traveled to Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls. After hearing so much about this amazing place, we finally decided to take some time off to have fun with the kids. December is a birth month of my first son, what is a better gift than having a good time an entire weekend in a place that is geared toward kids. I can’t wait to tell you all about our trip in an upcoming post, but first, can we talk about our fabulous room? Read More »

Dark Denim + Poncho // Casual Winter Travel Outfit (Plus Size)

 Winter travel outfit ideas- mycurvesandcurls.com

Happy New Year loves ! I hope you all had a fantastic end of year. I’ve been a little M.I.A as of late because I am not a fan of the end of the year. Ever since I reached my 30s, I go through some anxiety especially during the last week of  December. I always think about all the things I could have accomplished the last 12 months. Time never waits for anyone. With that being said, I still grateful for all the opportunities I received over the last year.

Visiting Dubai for the first time ? There are so many things you need to know before you book your ticket.  I visited Dubai last May and it was one of the most beautiful cities i’ve been to so far. The laws and culture are very different from what I am used to, but that never stopped me from taking this trip of a lifetime. When you love traveling as much as I do, you have to be open minded and very receptive of other cultures. This list is based on what I’ve observed and learned from tour guides during my trip.

Dubai Desert Safari Experience – What to expect

Dubai Desert Safari-what-to-wear

Picture shot with my Samsung Note 5. No editing

When I booked my flight to Dubai, I knew that going to the Dubai Desert Safari was one of the things I had to do before I left. It’s not everyday you get to ride a camel or watch a belly dancer right? Finding the right company was a job of his own. Dubai is a tourist destination , the options are endless. There are some good ones and some not so good ones. Most tour companies offer relatively the same kind of experience. Depending on what you can afford, your experience might be slightly different. Do your research and read reviews before booking anything. I booked my tour via viator.com.

Traveling in Comfort and Style: What to wear to the airport

What to wear to the airport from cold to warm ( plus size)As you probably already know I am currently on a trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi with my sister. I will tell you more about our vacation later, in the meantime see all my photos on Instagram. I love travelling the world and discovering new places and cultures. I remember when I was younger, I used to dress up for the plane ride. When I said dress up, I mean nice dress, heels and everything like I was a celebrity. I hope you caught the sarcasm, because no one can dress like those celebrities with high knee boots and heels coming from the airport like they’re shooting a movie. I can’t say I do not envy them , but that is just not real life.

A Mini Vacation in Mont Tremblant Village & Ski Resort

As mentioned before, I’ve decided to embrace winter and do more winter activities with my family this year. A few weeks ago, we visited one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to, The Mont Tremblant village & Ski Resort. We had actually scheduled a trip there back in December, but had to cancel because of a snow storm. I am glad we’ve finally made it there right before the end of the season.
