Travel Therapy: Burlington, Vermont

A few weeks ago, I took some time off work. The plan was to eat, sleep, and do absolutely nothing. However, by the second day of my staycation, I was sick of being indoors, so I decided I was going to travel to a new city. Since it was an impromptu plan, I chose a state that wasn't too far--Vermont.

Vermont is known for skiing and other outdoor activities. However, I chose to go to the metropolitan city of Burlington. I absolutely enjoyed my time in this beautiful New England city. The people were extremely friendly, and everywhere I went, there was a warm smile to welcome me. 

Burlington is a college town, so it was bustling with a lot of activities. From the colorful buildings to the serene Lake Champlain, there was something charming in every nook and cranny. Below are some of the pictures I took. I Hope you enjoy them.

Church Street Market Mural
Church street market place is the famous shopping district in Burlington. While the street was filled with the typical  retail stores (GAP, Macy's etc),  I  spent few hours exploring some of the quaint stores available.

Ben and Jerry was founded in Burlington, Vermont. While the original store is no more, the one pictured here is not too far from the first location.

I am obsessed with signage and I thought this was a pretty neat sign
Lake Champlain Chocolate: I took a free chocolate making tour here and was treated to a history of the company and free yummy chocolate.
How cool is this!
Another gorgeous  and colorful building

Follett House built in 1840 is reminiscent of the White House--no?

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?


Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
