Fall in New England: Woodstock and Queechee, VT

Visiting New England in the fall has been on my bucket list for a while. We spent three days road-trippin’ through this gorgeous autumn-lover’s paradise this October.

Fall in New England: Shelburne & Stowe

I’ve always wanted to experience the New England fall. Autumn is my favourite season at home, and the Americans just do it much, much better. So, after a short, but sweet, stay in New York City, we hopped on a Greyhound bus to Boston to collect our car. By the way, I would THOROUGHLY recommend […]

New York City Part 2: Downtown Manhattan

  New York is honestly one of my favourite cities in the world. A cliché, I know. I’m really not a city person – I find them stuffy, crowded and stressful. You could say New York is all three of those things, but for some reason I just don’t care and always want to go […]

BUT I’M SO EXCITED FOR THE PÂTISSERIES”. Now, let me just start by saying […]

Happy Halloween! (Now can we get excited for Christmas?!)

Happy Halloween! When I was little, we didn’t really make a huge deal out of Halloween (other than watching Hocus Pocus – one of my favourite films of all time), but thanks to my American brother-in-law it’s now an annual event for our family. We get together, carve pumpkins, and my sister makes us a […]
