Mermaid Island – Aruba!

 

Hands down, so far, Aruba has got to be the most BEAUTIFUL island I’ve ever been to so far. I know that I have a lot of favourites, but this one takes the cake. I’m a hugeeeee fan of beautiful beaches and I don’t like a beach that’s too crowded to the point where you have to  struggle to seek out where to place your towel and belongings. Plus in reality, I really just want to be able to take shameless selfies in peace without being judged. LOL.

And luckily, Aruba has just that. Secluded private islands with flamingos and silence! ugh, heaven! I have NEVER seen a flamingo up close and personal like I have in Aruba. You can basically take pictures with them, of them, or you can also feed them if you’d like. What i really liked about them (the flamingos) was that they didn’t bother you for food like some other animals are known to. They did their own thing and only posed for pictures if you called them to. It was almost like they were trained. But they’re not, I asked. lol Continue reading Mermaid Island – Aruba!

Carry-On Luggage – Checklist!

Don’t you just hate when you forget to pack something? or even just forgetting something important period????.

Well, at some point, we’ve all pretty much have been there and done that. I find it to be even WORSE when you’re miles away from home and you realize your damn charger is still sitting on your bed. *insert mad emoji face here*.

So, to help avoid this issue, I’ve created a quick and easy to follow checklist of things you could pack in your carry on luggage. I myself won’t dare to even pack without following a pre-written list these days. So if you don’t have one, or need help writing one… you can use mine as a guideline or even just to grasp some sort of idea as to what to pack in yours… so here we go!

Mermaid Island – Dominican Republic!

Let me start off by saying that I absolutely loved my stay in the Dominican Republic! It’s such a beautiful island. The colours are absolutely amazing! I’m talking about the trees, the peacocks, the flamingos! They have it all! And to top it all off… they had a variety of food to choose from. Continue reading Mermaid Island – Dominican Republic!

A Mermaid’s view – Scarborough bluffs!

This year, I spent my entire Canadian Thanksgiving at the Scarborough bluffs in Toronto, Canada. And I must say, it was my best thanksgiving yet. It did take about 20 minutes to find the damn place, lol. But that was because the area was so large and there were plenty of back streets and houses to drive past in order to find this beauty. Continue reading A Mermaid’s view – Scarborough bluffs!

Mermaid In The City – Miami!

Miami, Miami, Miami!

Miami is definitely in the top five of my “favourite cities to visit” list. It is such a gorgeous city, it hold a special place in my heart. With the best drinks, great views, yummy food, and the hottest night clubs around, who wouldn’t love Miami?. Right.

In real life, Miami REALLY looks like those fancy “Miami vice” video games with the fast cars and gorgeous woman. There is just tons of stuff to do in a city like Miami. I find this great, especially for those who simply want to celebrate a cause, or even if you’re just looking to have a good time with a couple of friends. Miami is the city for you. I wouldn’t recommend travelling to Miami alone though. It just seems like it’s more of a city you’d travel to with your friends. Plus it’s pretty fast paced. I can only imagine what the dating scene in Miami is like. shouldn’t be too complicated. lol Continue reading Mermaid In The City – Miami!

Beautiful island, with friendly people and breathtaking views! I would highly recommend going sightseeing off the resorts. Continue reading Mermaid Island – Cuba!

L.A! One of my favourite places to visit. Anyone who knows me, knows I have an obsessive palm tree fetish and my gosh these babies are everywhere! L.A is like my third home. Right behind the big apple. So where do i start? First off, there is so much to do in L.A. So many places to see and eat! I find the food out in L.A to be a little healthier. Lots of juicing companies & vegan choices to select from. So if you’re leaning towards a healthy place to visit, L.A might be for you. Next, the sunshine! The weather in L.A is always great. Being from Toronto, I find that even on their coldest day , the weather is STILL pretty rad to me. Continue reading Mermaid in the City – Los Angeles, California!

Jamaica is one of the most beautiful islands I’ve ever seen! There is simply so much to see and do on this particular island. It’s great for people who love sight seeing. The food itself is amazing and the views are even better. The music is relaxing and overall gives you that Bob Marley relaxing vibe. The people on the island of Jamaica are extremely friendly. If you ever plan to visit Jamaica, you won’t be disappointed. Continue reading Mermaid Island – Jamaica!

Costa Rica is one the most naturally gorgeous and purest places I’ve ever been. It’s the place where you can expect to see sloths and monkeys roaming around on trees. Which makes it an excellent choice of destination for animal lovers. Continue reading Mermaid Island – Costa Rica!
