Happier with Avion

I have been collecting RBC Rewards through my RBC Avion card for what feels like forever. When I was younger, I held on to the points in case I needed to take an emergency flight home to Portugal. Because RBC Reward points don’t have any flight restrictions or blackout periods, I always felt safe knowing that I could travel whenever I needed to. Now that I’m older and I can afford emergency flights, this year I used some of my points to buy a ticket to Lisbon for Christmas & New Years! It was very exciting to see what it was like to use my points for some fun travel – especially at a peak travel time like the holidays. Booking my trip was a…

Road tripping to Ottawa

Hey babes! A few weeks ago my blogger bestie, Alex & I travelled to Ottawa to explore around! We both have never toured around Ottawa and it was a great place to visit for a short road trip. This short roadie was probably one of the best I’ve had with a friend in a long time! We were lucky enough to team up with Acura Canada and drive an Acura RDX, which was CRAZY insanely good on gas {we’re talking not even a full tank was used}, very spacious for all our luggage and of course smooth to drive. When we arrived we quickly checked into the Novotel and hit the ground running.  We were very interested in checking out the Nature Nocturne at the…

Grand Canyon

Hey Loves! Over the Christmas holidays I traveled to Las Vegas with my family! It was such an amazing experience. I had never been to Vegas before so I was one of those crazy tourists with a selfie stick in hand at all times snapping photos of literally everything!

I walked to strip many times, went to a Cirque show, saw Steve Aoki perform at Omni nightclub, played slot machines {where I won a bunch of money} and  one of the best and scariest experiences I had was to visit the Grand Canyon! It was the most surreal places I’ve ever visited. I must say this is something…

Le Chateau goes to Dubai

Hey Babes! As you know I headed to Dubai a few weeks ago with Le Chateau to check out their newly opened store in the largest mall in the world! When we think largest mall, we think West Edmonton Mall, but no the Dubai Mall is literally a 3 day excursion! With over 1,200 stores, a zoo, ski slope, ice rink, aquarium and so much more, Le Chateau has definitely found a great new home! With so many luxe brands like, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada, Le Chateau is right up there next to them. You literally can spot the store from miles away. With a bright lit up entrance, similar to when you walk into Dior, to a shiny new marble floor and very…

A Princess in Óbidos – Portugal

Óbidos is located about 15 minutes from Peniche, and is one of the most beautiful castles in the area.  Walking the streets and castle walls, any girl will feel like a princess!  Could you imagine if you were one of the 3,000 people living in Óbidos? How many could say they live in a castle? Oh the dreams I have! With it’s well-preserved medieval architecture & cobble stone streets Óbidos is a hot tourist destination.
