Style Jaunt: Puerto Vallarta series with Flare & Transat

1-IMG_0795My favourite thing to do when traveling (um, other than finding amazing food spots, of course) is shop. I love to shop so much that I carry a giant purse, bring a packable duffle bag with me for my purchases, and make my boyfriend pack light so that I can share his suitcase if I shop too much (he’s the best). I just love discovering authentic and local items that you can’t find in your home town to remind you of your international adventure.

The Fall Colour Report

 

fallIt’s the perfect time to see fall colours in Ontario! Algonquin Park is already at peak viewing time. There’s nothing more disappointing than going on a lovely fall drive only to discover that all the leaves have fallen off and the fall colours are over.

Don’t let that happen to you! There are two awesome websites that I recommend to check the status of the fall colours. Parks Ontario has a dated report that tells you the status of the fall colours and leaf coverage at each of their provincial parks.
