Coco for Tulum | My stay at Coco Tulum

It’s no secret that I love travelling. When it comes to escaping winter, there is no better way to do that than to fly to a Caribbean destination. Tulum has always been on my list, and I was ecstatic to finally get a chance to visit. The first thing I usually look for in any new destination is boutique hotels…

Cozying up with Pasta at Cafe Nervosa

I know I’m not alone when I say that pasta is one of my all-time favourite comfort foods. What I love about pasta is that so many layers of flavours can be combined to create different dishes, yet no matter what, it always holds a little taste of home…I guess that’s why they call it comfort food! Another great thing…

Gluten-free Pancake Cups with Strawberries

These are probably best baked! I tried to pan-fry them, and it just wasn’t the same as baking. I have a few friends who are gluten-free, and when I bake, I like to think of who would want to eat my cooking while keeping in mind their dietary restrictions. I’m so glad these turned out great! This is the third…

Field of Flowers

It looks like summer in Toronto is here to stay, and you won’t hear me complaining! More warm weather only means more adventures and new places to explore under the sun. I recently went to Andrew’s Scenic Acres with Darlene and found this gem of a location. A literal field of flowers – the kind I can only dream of! And…

Gare De L’Est Brasserie | Toronto

Parisian fare? Oui, s’il vous plaît!   I love everything Parisian, especially when combined with one of my favourite things — food!  I stumbled across this restaurant a few months ago when they were in the early stages of building and renovating their space at the corner of Dundas and Carlaw. My friend lives in the building across, and I’m…

End of summer | CNE

The CNE (Canadian National Exhibition), or as us Torontonians like to call it, the “EX”, is an ode to another summer passed as it runs every year during the last two weeks of August and into the labour day long weekend. What better way to comfort the summertime sadness than with food, fun, and games? The trouble is, it’s quite…

Açai Smoothie Bowl for Breakfast!

This recipe was inspired by the açai bowl I had when I went to Hawaii. I had my first açai bowl from Haleiwa Bowls in North Shore, Hawaii. It’s not the exact recipe, but this was inspired and remind me of the one I had. There are different types of açai that you can get to make the smoothies: frozen,…

Water Lilies

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged here. I haven’t gotten into the groove yet. I’ve also been travelling to a couple of places since early this year – that means more content in the coming months! Nevertheless, I’m trying to blog today. Yesterday, I returned from my trip to Paris and every time I come back from that wonderful city…

Lunch with The New Girl | Oretta Toronto

One of the best pasta’s I’ve had in Toronto – al dente – reminds me of the pasta I had in the Amalfi Coast.  With new encounters, you never know what’s going to happen. I decided recently to start a personal blog to share some of my “archived” photos that have not seen the light of day and to share…

How to back up your personal photos | Unlimited storage

I posted about Google Photos on my photography Instagram about two years ago, but I thought I’d post it as a blog post to share. I highly recommend this app: Google Photos. Nowadays, mobile storage has a considerable size since everything is transitioning to mobile technology. Two years ago, I wanted to find a way to keep/backup all my photos…

Venice Beach, California

Last summer, I visited Venice Beach for the first time with my assistant after photographing one of my couples’ engagement session in San Diego. We drove from San Diego to Venice Beach, which took about 3 hours with a little bit of traffic.   We stayed at Hotel Erwin. The hotel is close to the beach and has a beautiful…
