Only one more sleep until I’m heading on a super early (way too early) flight to New York City! I can’t explain my excitement. New York is a city that I cannot wait to visit, each time. I literally crave the city and once I’m there, all feels right. I’ll be spending one full week there with Alex and need to do my best to not over-pack. Luckily, my new luggage is a little smaller than my usual case so I won’t pack as much. Today I’m sharing my tips and tricks on how to not over-pack! I need to pack…

What does an interview or date (the “or” is debatable) have in common? The dreaded question, “so, tell me about yourself” by someone you’ve just met. Where do you even begin?

Photo via Street Scout Me. Walla Walla is the town so nice, they named it twice! Earlier this month I traveled to Walla Walla, Washington with Travel About Magazine, Sabrina, Maneli and Elise for a quick girls getaway. With all of a us needing a quick break from Vancouver, we wanted to head somewhere without travelling too far or spending a lot of money. Walla Walla is a great place to go for delicious food and a wine tasting room on every corner. Let me preface this post by saying that I actually don’t drink wine but that’s not to say that I couldn’t join my wine drinking gals…
