Hello Lovelies! Since the weather out there is getting frightful, I thought today would be perfect for a little Throwback Thursday to our travels in South Africa and walks on the beach, when there was sun on my face and sand beneath my feet. :) Yes.. would definitely be there instead right now. Or anywhere that has a beach. With sun. Sign me up!! We have so many memories of time spent by the ocean as kids, it’s like there is a lifetime full of special moments in the memory bank. But there’s nothing like making new memories and finding those unique moments in every new day. I absolutely love this look – so casual and easy-going. Simply take a cute top (that could be either dressed up or down), and throw on your favorite pair of jeans for a stroll along the beach. In the summertime, these classic leather Tory Burch sandals are a definite staple in my wardrobe. They go with everything, and are super comfy to walk in! After the sun sets, it gets quite cool by the water. So I always have a cozy knit sweater handy for just such an occasion. What are some of your favorite memories that you’ve made this year? Xo

Check out the video of our afternoon at the beach here!

Hello lovelies! And happy Wednesday to you all :) One of the things I absolutely love is shopping at the waterfront, strolling through the craft markets and stopping in for lunch date. So today on the blog I am sharing a memory from our time in Cape Town earlier this year, spending time with the family at Primi Piatti. The V&A Waterfront is one of my most favorite spots in Cape Town, and we always try a new spot to eat! This time we stopped in at Primi Piatti, which has amazing views over the ocean. It was a chilly day, so of course, I opted for the warm, delicious baked mac & cheese :D Plus, a latté! Best way to keep warm. Love being able to look back on these memories, and excited to go on some more foodie travel adventures soon! <3

Hello Lovelies! So you probably know by now that I am a huge sushi fan!! Today on the blog I want to share with you the amazing time we had out at Azuridge Estate Hotel for their Sushi & Saki event where we got to try our hand at making our own sushi, and connecting with some incredible people along the way.

The hotel is located a few kilometers outside of Calgary in the Priddis area. It was a beautiful drive, and really felt like a mini vacation away from the city! The hotel is absolutely beautiful, with big bay windows and high ceilings, nestled away in the Alberta foothills that roll out to the Rocky Mountains. Azuridge is surrounded by 13 acres of beautiful forest and is a stunning location for any event. A true home away from home!

To start the night we all got our very own chef hat, because of course, you have to look the part! The staff at Azuridge were so much fun! They showed us how to prep the rice, and what exactly goes into making the perfect sushi rice. Our first attempt was at a California roll, topped with beautiful green roe. Next we had some fun making a selection of nigiris – salmon, tuna, and shrimp! After making as much sushi as we could, we sat down to dinner to enjoy our creations.

To start, we each received a miso soup, which was amazing!! So flavorful, and the ingredients were top notch. Next we each got our own sushi plates, plus some extra made by the hotel sushi master – just in case ours didn’t turn out so well. To drink, we had the option of warm or cold sake and I also opted for a big cup of green tea. After all the sushi was either devoured or packed away in to-go containers, we got a big plate of traditional Japanese desserts for the table. I love trying out new things!

To top it all off, my favorite of the evening, was a delicious scoop of green tea ice cream, served inside of an ice cube. Amazing! At the end of the night we were all treated to the loveliest gift bags with our very own bamboo mat and wasabi. We also got to keep our chef hats, of course! Such an incredible evening, and definitely excited to be back for a good long stay at the hotel. What is your favorite experience from Azuridge? <3

Last week we spent a few days discovering the beautiful Phi Phi Islands, or as they say, “Koh Phi Phi”. After almost 3 weeks in Phuket we decided it was time to hit the “ocean” in search of some new adventures. During our time there we found so many unique places and with a little bit of digging we were able to have an amazing time.
