How to stay hydrated on a 16 hour plane trip.

September 12, 2016

I once took a plane trip to Italy (approx 16 hours of travel time) and didn’t take any skincare products or toiletries with me. When I landed, I left the plane feeling…gross (for lack of better terms). So needless to say, I made sure to never make that mistake again! The next time I took the 16-hour journey, I made sure I was prepared. And it made all the difference. When I left the plane, I felt refreshed and energized,…

Milan, Rome and Venice Travel Guide.

September 9, 2016

When I was in university (4+ years ago!) I did an exchange semester in Italy. Milan to be exact. While living in Milan for 6 months definitely doesn’t make me an expert on the city, I think I’m somewhat qualified to give some sort of guidance/tips on the city right?  So when Julius a friend and colleague of mine asked me for some things to do on an upcoming stopover in Milan, I jumped at the opportunity to offer my…

That’s why when I was in Italy just a few weeks ago, I made sure to pay attention to…

La Festa Della Donna.

March 8, 2016

Whenever I think of International Women’s Day (or La Festa della Donna as they call it in Italy), one story always comes to mind. When my cousin Erica was 4 years old, she received a mimosa flower on March 8. It was from a Gaetano, a boy in her class that liked her, and his attempt to get her to notice him. Sadly, his attempt for attention didn’t work, but this story is exemplary of what is so special about…

Campari Soda: My Go-To

January 19, 2016

Did you know that in Italy, you can buy Campari Soda pre-made in a single serve bottle? Yep, I saw it when I went to Eataly and was totally jealous. Here in Canada, we have to make our Campari Soda the old fashioned way (the horror!). So I’m here to share my go-to drink with you.  When people ask me what I’m drinking, 9 times out of 10 my response will either be Campari Soda or Aperol Spritz.  Campari falls…
