I grew up in Toronto. My dream of being able to learn how to surf dated back to “Blue Crush” and “Soul Surfer” – but the closest thing I had to it near home was braving the Great Lakes during winter in the middle of a windstorm. No thanks. Besides, the California coastline and beaches of Hawaii seemed much more appealing at the time.

Do everything, one thing or nothing at all. This is your trip – and anything you do sets you up for the perfect escape.

That’s what I love about Tofino. You can set out to have a weekend to shut off and unwind, pack it with adventure or have a bit of both in the mix. There is literally no wrong answer.

If you’ve followed my shenanigans for a while – you know that I’m no stranger to taking on a new city solo. I don’t mind being alone – it’s grounding for me to be away from other people and just be with myself. In fact, it’s my way of recharging. It’s one of the reasons […]

Whether this is your first trip to the City of Angels, or a friendly trip back to a place that’s starting to feel like home – there’s always something new to do here.

Grab your girls, and let’s kick this series off.

Welcome to #TheGirlsTripSeries.

Three days in London. Three. Freaking. Days.

Was it short? Incredibly.
Do I wish that I could have stayed longer? 100%
Did I go anyways? Duh.

Ford Canada recently launched their 2018 Ford EcoSport to the world, and they took the celebration nation-wide by driving the car from coast to coast! Check out my leg of the tour from Thunder Bay to Winnipeg!

Quiet neighbourhoods, the beach is steps away from your door and there is no shortage of amazing spots to hang out at. Here are 6 of my favourite spots in Kits!

Remember watching cartoons when you were a kid and seeing four presidents’ faces carved into a mountain.  Yes, that’s Mount Rushmore – and it exists in real life.  I drove by to give a quick hello to the fellas and it’s definitely cool to check out in real life. BUT, I’ve got three things that you’ve got to add to your list of “must do’s” when you’re in the Mount Rushmore state.

Because you’re going, ok?

Ok.
