Halo Espresso Bar

Happy Labour Day Babes! 

It has been a hot minute since my last post but I have been SO crazy busy up here in Toronto! I did make time to collaborate with a new coffee shop that just opened in Mississauga though and I am super psyched to share it with you guys.

Halo Espresso Bar is about to become your new favourite spot to grab coffee in Mississauga. They opened a little over three weeks ago and are already gaining so many loyal fans. How could they not with some of the BEST coffee I have had in the GTA!?

First off Halo roasts all their own coffee in store. I love coffee shops that do this, it really makes for a better coffee. So that caught my eye and heart right away.

They also make all their cookies and pastries fresh in store. How delicious do these all look? Trust me when I say they taste even more amazing than they look if that is even possible!

The actual store is also too cute! I love how open and airy the entire place is. Plus the lightening is PERF for pictures aka the Gram ;)

If you're not into coffee than you could get this refreshing iced tea which is FAB and super low cal. They even have cold pressed juices for all the juice lovers out there.

Halo has also recently added food to their menu. I personally tried the Turkey Breast Croissant and it was DELICIOUS. I would definitely recommend!

My Stay at Hotel Sorella

Hola Babes!

I am so excited to share 1 of the two hotels I got to stay in while I was in Houston. So consider this part one of my hotel posts!

The first hotel stop on my Houston trip was Hotel Sorella. This gorge boutique hotel is located right in the middle of the CityCentre which is PERF because all the best shopping and food is literally surrounding the hotel. The location is a definite winner.

When you walk in, you walk right through the gorgeous lobby. It has so many places you can just lounge and work on your computer or scroll on your Instagram ;)

Now lets talk about the room because y'all, it was perfection! Literally one of the best rooms with the best view ever!

I love how spacious and open the layout was. It has such a modern sleek vibe, which I was definitely loving. The bathroom was SO WELL LIT! It made doing your makeup a freaking breeze. And obviously the VIEW THOUGH!

After I unpacked, I just hung out for a bit to unwind and relax. I ordered some room service because hey, a girls gotta eat! Then it was time to hit the pool!

Sorella has one of the most gorgeous pools you guys! I could have spent my whole stay lounging and swimming. Look how pretty that water is, it calls to you!

From the pool I went back up to my room and got some dinner delivered to me because I'm definitely too lazy to go out and get my own, like who does that? Shoutout to Pizza Hut for always coming through :)

The next morning I woke up after having one of the best sleeps in my Sorella bed. It was so hard to get out of bed, seriously you guys I wanted to stay in all day!

I finally got up and showered. Of course I had to take a second and take in the view, I obviously am obsessed with it :P I put my makeup on and then went to check breakfast because I am literally always thinking of food!

Can we just take a minute to admire the stunning breakfast that Sorella has though?? Like look at this yumminess y'all *insert heart eye emojis*. So. Many. Options! I went with fruits, a chocolate croissant, and one of their sweet potato scones. Of course coffee because like who doesn't drink coffee at breakfast??

I honestly don't have anything but positive things to say about Hotel Sorella. The hotel and everyone there who helped me was amazing. If you are looking for a place to stay on your next visit to H-Town definitely check out Hotel Sorella, you won't be sorry ;)

Pod Hotel Times Square

Hey Babes!

Happy Sunday!! I hope you guys are having a great Sunday Funday so far. I have been spending mine catching up on work and emails after all my traveling last week and weekend. If you follow me on Instagram then you know I was in Toronto and NYC last week and even though I am hella exhausted it was SO worth it ;) Manhattan is ALWAYS worth it. Speaking of, I am so excited to show you guys the awesome hotel we stayed in while we were there.

Pod Hotels has officially become my all time favourite hotel. This was the first time I ever wanted to even spend time in my hotel while in Manhattan. It could also be that I was hella exhausted but I think it was definitely because of how freaking gorgeous everything was.

Lets hop right into the cute lobby because it is SO artsy and unique. I am obsessed! Also, how cute is this magnetic board!? So perfect for the Gram am I right?

Now lets talk about my aesthetic AF room. It deserves SO much love because it was insanely adorable and made this blogger's heart so happy because of all the white everywhere ;) And those pops of red are everything, red is my favourite colour in case you didn't know.

The desk in the corner was so handy especially for working on my laptop because you know a bloggers work is never done! Between the chargers at the desk and the stinking cute charging station by the coat/bag hooks you could charge EVERYTHING which deserves recognition!

The bathroom was really cute and again the white aesthetic, can't go wrong! It was also VERY well lit so doing my makeup was a breeze. In fact the whole room was actually amazingly bright.

I honestly and truly have nothing but praise and good things to say about Pod Hotels. Everything was gorgeous and everyone was so helpful and friendly. I would stay with them again in a heartbeat.
