CANNES TRAVEL GUIDE

August 20 2015
Cannes Travel Guide

South of France is my first point of entry to France. I’ve been to Cannes for both work and personal almost every year and I joke that I know the place more than my in-laws. I did have a wonderful introduction to the city when my in-laws showed me around and took me to their […]

HAVANA TRAVEL GUIDE

July 28 2015

Download Clumsy Chic 5-day Havana Travel Itinerary We travelled to different parts of Cuba and Havana was an easy favorite. Although, the time spent at the beach was wonderful, there’s nothing quite like feeling the pulsating energy of Havana. It’s a treat for the senses. For photography enthusiasts like Anthony and I, we found ourselves […]

IN-FLIGHT TRAVEL ESSENTIALS

In-Flight Travel Essentials

I’m not a frequent flyer but I like to be super prepared when I do fly to feel comfortable especially during a long-haul flight. With our recent trip to Cuba, I was dreading our 14-hour flight to Montreal plus a 4-hour flight to Cuba from Montreal. To keep myself sane, I made sure I pack […]

TRINIDAD, CUBA PHOTO DIARY

July 7 2015
Trinidad, Cuba

Anthony and I arrived in Trinidad,Cuba after a 4-hour journey from Varadero. We were greeted by the rural charm of the city and felt like time stood still the moment we stepped out of the bus. A family member of the casa we were staying picked us up from the bus station. We made our […]

BEST WAY OF PACKING FOR A TRIP

June 25 2015
Packing Light

I’ve learned two things about packing light after my one month escapade in Asia with a carry-on. One: you always pack more than you need. Two: your reach out for your most comfortable item over and over again (in my case, it was my ripped denim shorts). Now, I keep these two things in mind […]

TRAVEL BUCKET LIST- CUBA

June 18 2015
travel bucket list

Cuba has long been on my travel bucket list, and it’s always been my plan to visit the country well before it turns into a tourist hot spot once the U.S. embargo has been lifted. After this announcement was made, Anthony and I changed our plans to go to Morocco (sorry Morocco!) and booked a ticket […]

PARIS TRAVEL DIARY

March 26 2015

The last time I was in Paris, I was there only for three days to find a wedding dress. Pretty romantic reason to go that was made even sweeter with a cute fiancé in your arms. We climbed the Eiffel Tower, sat in a cafe, and placed our love locks at the bridge. Years later, […]

PRINTEMPS 150 ANS

March 24 2015

As if spending time in Paris isn’t romantic enough, I was serenaded into falling madly in love with the city this weekend. A stay in a hotel suite overlooking Palais Royal, eating deserts for breakfast at La Maison du Chocolat and getting decked up in designer duds exclusively designed for the Parisian department store Printemps Haussmann. […]

WEEKEND TRAVEL ESSENTIALS

January 20 2015

Whether it’s packing a carry-on for a month long trip or packing for a special event (Cannes Film Festival) I’m all about packing smartly. I’m off to Dubai for 24-hour business trip to celebrate Inglot’s Fall In Love collection, and with a jam-packed schedule, I brought only my essentials on-the-go items. Making sure I swiftly go through airports […]

CHRISTMAS IN BERLIN

January 6 2015

Why did we spend Christmas in Berlin? It was pulled out of a hat, literally. Let me tell you the story. Deciding where to go on a holiday as a family (in my case, my in-laws) feels very much like taking part of the UN summit, where all members agree to disagree, yet no resolution […]
