New Orleans

New Orleans: Photo Diary



It’s been a while since I’ve been somewhere for the first time and until my most recent trip, I didn’t realize how much I miss that feeling. Earlier in the month, my cousins and I decided to take a trip to New Orleans.  I’m not even sure why we decided on New Orleans as our destination but I’m really glad that we did.

To be honest, I didn’t know much about the city other than, it was hit really badly by the hurricane a few years ago and that they’re known for having amazing food and great artist, oh and Mardi Gras!

I was open to just taking in as much of the culture and its unique beauty during the time that I was there.

I really don’t know how to explain New Orleans other than it’s like no other place that I’ve visited. At moments it made me feel like I was in Miami because of the palm trees, Paris because of the patio set ups outside of the restaurants,  Portland because of the architecture in the Warehouse district and the Caribbean islands because of the colour palettes – it’s truly magical!


Mother’s Restaurant (the food was amazing here!)

A huge thing that made my experience in NOLA so exceptional was, the people! I’m not going to lie, I feel like the people in New Orleans restored my faith in humanity (seriously). Everyone was so friendly and so accommodating, it was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. To know and hear about all of the things that some of these people have endured with hurricane Katrina and to see how positive they are, it was so beautiful and refreshing!

I feel like the universe wanted me to see this city for many reasons and I’m so glad that I was able to.  I’m not sure if I shared this on the blog before but I’m really into connecting with higher spirits and I’ve always had a fascination with psychics and their practices since I’ve been a kid (it’s not for everyone).  I ended up doing some research on a boutique before arriving in the city, that provides psychic readings, spiritual guidance and sells crystals, called Earth Odyssey.

One afternoon while exploring the city, I ended up right in front of the store and decided to check it out! Luckily for me, they had an opening for a reading with their psychic and without hesitation I did it! It was honestly one of the most amazing experiences I have had and the reading was very accurate. If you’re into that stuff and happen to be visiting NOLA, I’d recommend stopping by.

As always, I took my camera and iPhone X  around with me for you guys to get a glimpse into my trip! Feel free to scroll down and see some of my personal highlights.

Until my next adventure,

New York

Through The Lens Of My iPhone X : New York Fashion Week Men’s


Fresh off my return from Men’s Week in New York, I’ve put together my latest photo diary for you guys! This trip to New York was like no other, filled with magical moments, a constant high and energy rush that words can’t describe. From presentations to runway shows, to meetings at the Empire State building to random nights out, I literally got a taste of everything except time to relax (but who needs that?!) haha!

The week before heading to New York I got my hands on the latest iPhone X and I decided to wait until my trip to truly test it out! I heard great things about the X but I didn’t realize how much of a beast it was, until using it. It took a minute for me to adjust to the new system (taking screenshots is different on the X haha) but after I got the hang of it, I was more than good to go! My favourite thing about the X… the camera (obviously)!

The camera on this phone literally made this work trip so much easier for me. When you’re attending fashion week events, everything happens so quickly and as a blogger you’re trying to see and capture EVERYTHING! Usually, I find myself  switching between 3 devices to capture the best content –  which can be stressful. This time around, I was able to solely use the iPhone X during  shows and presentations.

Instead of telling you guys all about it, I’d rather show you. Every photo in this blog post was both shot and edited using only my iPhone X and the apps I have on it – isn’t that crazy?

If you love blurred backgrounds in your street style photos, you can create that effect easily in portrait mode and can also create that effect with the front camera too (elevate your selfie game)!

These images are highlights from some of my favourite moments during Men’s Week. From hanging out at the LAB SERIES lounge at Men’s Day to getting a tour of the Sean John showroom, to lunch at Freds, to cocktails at the King Cole Bar to working on an exclusive project with Perry Ellis (more on this to come) see it all below!
