Viva Las Vegas!

I recently took a trip to Las Vegas; it was my first time! The city was definitely sensory overload in every aspect; from the lights & décor, to the casinos & the shows, there’s an intermingling of the opulent and the tacky. The shopping was insane and at times overwhelming – even for a turbo shopper – but I picked up some great pieces.

I attended a Halloween party at Tao in The Venetian and revived my Disco Queen costume from last year.
I added a DIY crown to the costume to change it up, check out how I made it HERE.

It was an adventure exploring most of what Vegas had to offer. I have to be honest and say that Las Vegas is not my favourite city what happens in Vegas should definitely stay there!

Bicycles Vineyards

This past long weekend was filled with gorgeous weather and wine tours in Niagara on the Lake. Considering the great weather, touring from winery to winery via a bicycle made for the perfect day. It became less about the wine and more about being outside, enjoying the scenery.


While in Aruba, I came across an environmentally conscious street vendor with a unique idea. The company is called do good Aruba and they re-purpose glass bottles sourced from local businesses, to create drinking glasses, tumblers, and vases. Aruba does not offer a viable glass recycling program, so these do-gooders were inspired to take matters into their own hands. The distinctive up-cycled pieces add character to your home decor or bar, while helping to support a great cause. I really love this initiative!

Flying Fishbone

On our last night in Aruba, we decided to check out the Flying Fishbone restaurant, and it did not disappoint. We experienced a romantic dinner on the beach in fact our feet were in the water with a gorgeous view and an exceptional meal. We started with the Peruvian ceviche and the seared tuna tataki, followed by the sirloin steak with lobster tail. The plates were surprisingly generous, and the accent of sand and ocean complimented the atmosphere. Couldn’t think of a better way to end the trip.
