Looking at this picture of my daughter basking in the glow of the magic hour on Varadero Beach @paradisusvaraderoresortandspa is making me want to go back, like RIGHT NOW. Thankfully @sunwingvacations makes it easy with weekly flights from #Ottawa to #Varadero all summer long. 🌴Want to know my favourite resorts?

Ah, the magic hour with @sbsailing was a perfect way to end the day in Santa Barbara. Over on the blog, I share how to have a perfect day in Santa Barbara from sunrise to 🌅. ☝️Click the link in my bio to read more. #ad #seesb #americanriviera #VisitCalifornia #sailing #california #magichour #Sunset #takemeaway #wonderfulplaces #passionpassport
We've come to realize that aging is fun, and it doesn’t have to be a hardship. It's when we can spend more time taking care of ourselves. I’ve started using Revitalift Cicacream recently. It’s infused with Centella Asiatica (aka Tiger Grass), a
plant from ancient Chinese medicine and used for centuries as one the world’s natural remedies for aging. I love how it hydrates and plumps up my fine
lines. Check out my blog to find out more of how I’m embracing aging, while still taking care of myself. #ad #cicacream #lorealskin #beauty #skincare #selfcare

Cheers! Over at Life in Pleasantville I’m sharing why I think @etstfoodtour is one of the best walking tours I’ve ever done. A combination of great food, wine, beer and spirits tasting, plus history and quirky tidbits, it’s a great way to spend a few hours in Santa Barbara.

It’s Cinco De Mayo 💃 so I’m throwing it back today to an amazing trip we took with @SunwingVacations to @DreamsPuertoAventuras with friends. I think about this stunning natural pool a lot. I think we spent more time here than at the pool. Can you blame us though?☝️Click the link in my bio to see the video we shot with Sunwing! ☝️ So fun 💃 Do you have a favourite place in Mexico? Where is it? #ad #Sunwingmode #1totheSun #Kidcations #Mexico #PuertoAventuras #RivieraMaya #instatravel #familyvacay #travelwithkids

The sun setting outside the Crown Plaza Ventura Beach Hotel. Talk about a beautiful closing act California, I wished I could freeze this moment forever, but an IG shot will have to suffice until I return to find out what other amazing adventures you have waiting for me. #VisitVentura #VisitCalifornia #DreamBig #California #sunset #beachlife #californialove #itsamazingoutthere #travelawesome #instatravel #dametraveler #waves #paradise #instafun
Do not, I mean DO NOT miss the Santa Barbara Courthouse when visiting Santa Barbara. It offers amazing views of the city from the top, and although there is an elevator, I highly recommend you take the stairs to catch all the stunning features of this building on the way up. I grabbed this shot on the way in, I have no idea what the celebration was, but it was framed for Instagram, don’t you think? #SeeSB #VisitCalifornia #AmericanRiviera #DreamBig #SantaBarbara #California #wonderfulplaces #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #californialove #itsamazingoutthere #travelawesome #instatravel

When I walked into my room @thelandsby in Solvang, California, I actually talked out loud to myself in disbelief saying “Oh.Shut.Up.” because come on, Look at this room? It’s the most California style room you could ever imagine with sleek decor, natural wide plank flooring, white shutters and this amazing seating area. I want my whole home to look like this room now. Positively dreamy. #SYVibes #VisitCalifornia #DreamBig #california #luxuryhotels #thelandsby #wonderfulplaces #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #californialove #itsamazingoutthere #travelawesome #instatravel #hoteldesign #luxuryliving #escape #instatravelling

🐴 Giddy up! 🐴 The horseback tour through the 1000 acre Fess Parker Ranch in Santa Ynez Valley is a must-do when visiting the area. A true working ranch, be prepared to see plenty of cattle, donkeys, and horses of courses ;) A slice of heaven, all you can see for miles around are mountains, valleys, and vineyards. A note in advance, this is where junk in your trunk can come in handy because there is no denying that 90 minutes on a horse when you’re not used to it, can cause some discomfort. I’m happy to report though that Fess Parker wine can help 🍷 . #SYVibes #VisitCalifornia #DreamBig #california #winecountry #fessparker #ranch #horses #wonderfulplaces #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #californialove #itsamazingoutthere #travelawesome #instatravel #instahorse #horsestagram #horsesofinstagram #ranchlife

The surf culture in California is something to behold. From the of youngest of kids to seniors, surfers flock to the coast looking for the perfect wave. I *still* have not tried surfing but there is no way that I’ll ever return to California without giving it a try. I will admit, I was super jealous of this guy heading into the water.

I did not regret this. If you ever find yourself in Santa Barbara, you NEED to make a reservation to dine at @santomezcal_sb. Without a doubt this is the best Mexican food I have ever had in my life. Don’t miss the Queso Fundido, but other stars on the menu include the Ahi Tuna Ceviche and the Ceviche Verde. Start the meal off with a XL Hibiscus Margarita. #savorsb #seesb #visitcalifornia #dreambig #foodlover #foodgasm #foodporn #eatingfortheinsta #instafood #tasty #yum #mexican

⭐️ Welcome to Hollywood! What's your dream? Everybody comes here; this is Hollywood, land of dreams. Some dreams come true, some don't; but keep on dreamin' - this is Hollywood……….⭐️
West Hollywood is California’s most walkable city with an amazing ranking of 91 according to Walk Score. So when you come here pack your most comfortable shoes, charge your camera, and be prepared for an eclectic neighbourhood packed with fascinating history and gems like this public suburban garden at the top of @restorationhardware_ . Look at this view? Le Sigh. You’ve got me with stars in my eyes Hollywood.  #visitweho #dreambig #visitcalifornia #hollywood #prettywoman #california #instatravel #wonderfulplaces #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #californialove #itsamazingoutthere #travelawesome

Where to begin with this epic press trip to #VisitCalifornia. Perfect weather, stunning landscape, people so nice they’re practically Canadian, foodie paradise, and wine. Oh that wine. I am already plotting multiple trips back to get more Cali in. There’s just too much to see and such diversity from one area to another, that it’s impossible to absorb it all in just one visit. #dreambig #visitcalifornia, #seesb #california #passionpassport #santabarbara #hiltonsantabarbara #pacificocean #traveldreams

I have been California dreaming for what seems like an eternity, and the moment has finally arrived. Tomorrow I fly to LA for six amazing days in Cali. I have SO many preconceived notions in my head, I can’t wait to see which ones are accurate and which ones I’m dead wrong on. What do you think of when you think of California? #presstrip #visitcalifornia #dreambig #visitventura #syvibes #seesb

I’m fairly certain, like 99% certain, that if I ever return to The Islands of Tahiti I will get a tattoo. I was absolutely obsessed with the tattoos the Tahitians had, each one telling a story that connects generations, and passes down history. Do you have a tattoo? Is it meaningful to you? #LoveTahiti #EmbracedByMana #FrenchPolynesia #Tahiti #SouthPacific #traveldeeper #wonderfulplaces #travelwriter #travelgram #postcardsfromaroundtheworld #wanderlust #travelphotography #worldplaces #traveller #Moorea #darlingescapes #traveldiary #tattoo #takemetotahiti

You only need to take one look at my IG story today to understand why I’m losing myself in photographs of sunny places today. Animal Kingdom at @waltdisneyworld is one of my favourite places on earth, especially the Kilamajaro Safari. What’s your favourite attraction at Walt Disney World?
