Why We Keep Going Back To Iberostar Varadero

varadero beach

Three years ago my family took our first beachy, all inclusive vacation to Varadero, Cuba. My dad worked with our travel agent and he was confident that he had found the best hotel for our family's needs and was excited to go. Me? I was just looking forward to escaping escaping Canadian winter. Well, we had a great trip. The staff were warm and welcoming, the weather warm and sunny, and the beach flawless and safe. Since then we have returned twice. Curious about what keeps bringing us back to Iberostar Varadero? Keep reading!

I Am Not Going On A Diet

2017 resolutions

This year my New Years resolution is not to go on a diet, its to make a lifestyle change. 2017 is a big, huge, exciting year for me and I want to be able to embrace it fully, and take photos I will be excited to show my grandkids one day. Diets are easy. Lifestyle changes are hard. I want to share the start of this journey with you. Keep reading, and if you want, feel free to join me.

Books I Read While On Vacation | Inspired By Netflix

vacation books

One of my favourite things to do while on my annual vacation to Varadero is to read. I find that in my every day life I just don't have enough time to delve deep into a book, and I wish that was not the case (more on that in an upcoming post). Keep reading (ha...ha...ha) to see what I read in Cuba.

DAVID'S TEA | Holiday 2016 Collection

davids tea holiday 2016

One of the things that that I love, but don't really talk about on my blog is tea. I actually really dislike the smell of coffee, so tea is how I get my warmed up caffeine in. I am pretty open minded when it comes to tea, though my favourite is a nice straight green tea. The other thing about tea that I am obsessed with is mugs! I love mugs. I use ~fancy~ tea mugs to hold my makeup brushes, and have such a huge stash in my kitchen its not even funny. One of my favourite places to get my tea is at David's Tea! Not only do they have more flavours than you can imagine, but their teawear is so so cute. Today I am sharing with you some pieces from their Holiday 2016 collection! Enjoy!
