Miami Beach Travel Diary

I'm officially back from Miami Beach and here is my travel story full of photos.
My boyfriend and I were suppose to go to New York during the Valentine's Day weekend, but when that was cancelled last minute, he surprised me with a trip to Miami.
Obviously I was bummed that our New York trip was cancelled, but way more excited to head somewhere warm rather than stay in -25 degree weather. 

During our trip we stayed at The Miami Beach Edition which was stunning. Everything from the lobby, to the pools, to the restaurants it was luxurious.

I mean seriously look at this lobby^

It was true bliss, and I'm very sad to be back in the cold Canadian weather.

My Carry-On Travel Toiletries

My Carry-On Travel Toiletries

Lately when I've been traveling I've been able to fit everything in a carry-on and I find it way more convenient to have a purse and carry-on, rather then check a bag. The main reason why I prefer having a carry-on is because I can't afford my checked bag to ever get lost. Usually when I travel I'm collaborating with companies and have crucial pieces of clothing I need to advertise. If I lost a bag it would be hell and I would be very unhappy blogger. The only negative with just a carry-on bag, is you obviously have to make sure any of your lotions or liquids are under 100ml. I've come up with this little collection of all my toiletries in carry-on size. These are actually all my favourite products, so I was thrilled to find all of them in carry-on sizes. The little spill proof bottles are especially great if I'm going somewhere warm for my sunscreen or body lotion.
