I messed up…

I never thought I would be the kind of person to lose their passport but… I messed up! A month ago, sitting in the comfort of my home back in oh-so-cold-Canada, I thought going from villa to villa in different cities seemed like a great way to see Bali. Airbnb even made it extremely easy for us to do so but… Yesterday, as I was sitting by the pool in villa #4, it all didn’t seem so great anymore! You see, when the owners asked us to fill up a little information sheet that required our passport number I suddenly realized I didn’t know where my passport was… Beginner move! I. Messed. Up. I wish I had a picture of our room 5 minutes after we checked in; It was a mess! I emptied both my suit cases on the floor and turned everything up side down at least 3 times before I ALMOST broke down crying (but I didn’t). At that point, I jumped online to figure out where the nearest Canadian Embassy was. …

Excuse my jet lag

It’s been a week, I know!
In my defence, we took so many flights to get to Bali that we’ve only been here for 5 days…
Ok! 5 days is long enough to write a simple blog post but Ive been SO jet lag!
This will be one hell of a blog post though, I promise!
Buckle up because this is the story of our first week in Bali!

Help, I’ve got the blues…

I leave for Bali in less than 3 days and if my ticket was refundable, I would probably be thinking about it right now… In other words, I am scared as F*** and I want to back out! I often leave the comfort of my home for the comfort of all-inclusive paradises or nice hotels around the world but it’s my first time leaving on an adventure by myself for 2 months. This isn’t like what I’ve done in the past… Far from it! Dont get me wrong, I will have comfortable beds to sleep in and sometimes they will even be in nice little villas but somehow it feels different and that scares me. Maybe it’s the fact that I will be on the opposite side of the world for 2 months or that it is my first time not travelling to major cities and being on a budget… Who knows?! At this point, I am even scared of the many flights we have to take to get there and I have never been scared of flying… Help! It …

Conrad Sewell – Montreal

I’ve been away for quite some time now but I couldn’t be happier to be back talking about such a talented artist. I got the chance to catch Conrad Sewell’s set at the Corona Theatre in Montreal as he is currently on tour with Andra Day. Unfortunately, I could only stay for a short amount of time as I had another event to attend. I would’ve loved to see Andra’s performance but Conrad killed it and Im glad I could make it to his set. I feel like a 12 years old fangirl writing this but I am pretty much certain that I am IN LOVE with him!! You’ve probably already heard a ton of his songs but if you haven’t seen him live yet you haven’t seen anything. He is mind blowing! He’s got a ton of energy and one of the strongest voices I have ever heard. The way he hit both some of the highest and the lowest notes is what impressed me the most! He’s also got a super sexy accent …

58th Annual Grammy Awards

Music’s biggest night ended just a few minutes ago and it is safe to say that it was one for the books! Miss Taylor Swift opened up the show in a very sparkly outfit singing her latest single Out Of The Woods. She was as fierce as ever and her vocals were as strong as they always are, if not more! Kendrick Lamar then won best rap album and left the stage to Sam Hunt and Carrie Underwood who performed a medley of some of their newest songs proving that country will always have its place on the Grammys’ stage. Ariana Grande then introduced my fellow canadian The Weeknd with a very questionable joke. None the less, he went on performing two of his biggest hits in two very different settings. He even ended his performance with an acoustic set that got him a standing ovation from his fellow musician friends. Andra Day and Ellie Golding followed up with a very strong performance full of girl power! Beautiful women with graceful yet strong voices, what …
