In addition to making my living through social media + brand partnerships, many of you know I also have my own production company. It is a creative agency that specializes in digital media content for brands, hotels, and tourism boards around the world. We have worked with several brands throughout the past few years, and I wanted to share a video in collaboration with the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora. Also, if you are interested in how to get and execute brand partnerships on your social media, you can check out this 4 hour course in collaboration with my photographer Michael Moretti, and industry experts Sidewalker Daily, HERE.  


I have traveled to so many different parts of Mexico my entire life, but never had been to San Miguel De Allende. This colorful local town is a few hour drive from Mexico City, and when I got invited to experience it for the first time with Azaria Travel, I was excited for the opportunity. On another note, I am DYING to go to Mexico City and can’t believe I have never been! It’s such an amazing culinary city, and the foodie in me has been itching to go for years. It has an incredible street food scene as well which is very much my vibe. I was going to try and squeeze in a few days to Mexico City when I went to San Miguel, but I thought being in a big city during the pandemic might be risky so I ended up opting out. San Miguel had little to no cases when I went January of this year, and the small town went above and beyond safety measures to keep it that way. The …


I am SO thrilled to finally post my 2nd VLOG from French Polynesia. This is from my 2nd trip there in September 2020. It was one of the only “big” trips I took last year during Covid- I show how it was to travel during the pandemic, a lot of the “BEHIND THE SCENES” of shooting and creating content for the brands, resorts and tourism boards I work with, and I try to give a good sense of each resort I stayed at to help you make decisions if you plan to book a trip there. I really hope you enjoy this VLOG, it’s one of my favorite ones 🙂 also PLEASE SUBSCRIBE to my YOUTUBE CHANNEL. I spend so much time shooting and editing these VLOGS, and it would mean so much and help a lot to get more eyes on my videos! if you subscribe to my channel, you get a notification anytime I post a new video so you don’t miss any!

I’ve sat on this for awhile. It’s been a year and a half since my trip to Cook Islands! I kind of half assed doing a VLOG- but since I’m going again for the 2nd time next month I thought I’d slap something together before my trip there, and at least put this out there. I really want to start doing more Youtube content even if the videos aren’t amazing. I  want to always be uploading consistent and constant content for you guys, so it would mean so much if you would support and subscribe to my channel! It will help motivate me to release more video content and all the tutorials you ask for! Anyway, enjoy this VLOG from the beautiful Cook Islands!

Cuba has been on my travel bucket list for as long as I can remember. When I went back to Trinidad for Carnival back in March, I decided it might be a good time to squeeze in a Cuba trip after because I was already out that way. I went with amazing photographer and good friend of mine Michael Moretti, (@Moretti) and we decided to just go and create with no strict itinerary. Cuba is such a unique and fascinating place. I’ve traveled the whole world and I found there is no place like it. Its history has so much depth and is so complex; I felt all kinds of mixed emotions when I was there. On one hand I was so excited to finally be there- the Cuban culture is just as vibrant as the the city of Havana. Colorful vintage cars, fruit stands and graffiti/ street art on the walls of the buildings…the city is just so full of life and color its like a dream. I also found the energy of the …


I have always considered myself a storyteller. That’s how I know the best stories have plot twists in them. Four years ago, I thought I had my storyline mapped out. I was in a happy relationship, working as a producer for E!’s Fashion Police, and living comfortably off steady paychecks. One day I woke up, broke up with my boyfriend, quit my job and dropped all that hard-earned stability for a plane ticket in pursuit of a new adventure. Armed with corporate-job experience that deepened my understanding of the production and storytelling process, I continued to blog (which I had done on the side during my corporate job) about my food, travel and lifestyle passions. Fast forward to present day, and this dream has become more of a reality. Over the years, I have learned about various tools that better showcase my style, as well as which kinds of content are truly engaging for my followers. While much has changed in my style and the “method behind my madness,” if you will, my ultimate goal …


Just got back from Tulum, and already getting so many questions on recommendations on what to do there, where to go and obviously where to eat 🙂 Thought I’d share my favorite spots with you guys. I highly suggest renting a car when arriving in Cancun. You can rent a car for super cheap, and it gives you the flexibility and freedom to do whatever you want on your own time and not have to rely on finding taxi’s everywhere you go. Tulum is a 1.5 hour drive from the Cancun airport and it’s a straight shot on the highway basically. It’s an easy drive. Tip: Check to see if your credit card provides rental car insurance benefits. You can decline their insurance and use your CC’s- I would print a copy of the insurance terms your CC offers and give to them in a hard copy form. Good way to save money, and most of the time you can get crazy cheap deals at any rental car company at the Cancun airport. THE REAL …


Everybody goes to Morocco- at lease everyone in my world of travel blogging. I’ve never been to Morocco and I’m DYING to go,  its on the top of my list.  I was planning a trip to Morocco this past October and changed my mind…I chose to travel to Tunisia instead. I hadn’t seen anyone I know travel there before, therefore I was interested in it. I was in Italy for two weeks and ended my trip in Sicily, which  is just a short one hour flight into Tunis. I decided to spend 3 nights in Tunis, and 5 nights in Hammamet, Tunisia. I really didn’t know what to expect but I was curious about the culture and excited to learn about it. I found the people to be warm and genuine, and overall I felt good vibes everywhere I went. Tunisia is a Muslim country in Northern Africa bordering the Mediterranean sea and the Sahara Desert. They speak Arabic and French. I recently got the new EOS R camera from Canon and was eager to …
