In just a few short days I’ll be escaping the tundra that is Toronto weather and heading down to the beautiful island of Barbados to soak up some sun. I was in Barbados last year for a family reunion and completely fell in love with the island. Our reunion, however, was jam-packed full of events […]

A few weeks ago, I attended an event-“Visit San Antonio”- at the lavish Arcadian Studios. The event was a celebration to the culinary delights of Mexico with the celebrity chef of San Antonio, Chef Johnny Hernandez. “My hope is to share with our customers what I love most about Mexico: the vibrant culture, its hospitality […]

I’m the type of person who often takes on more projects than I can handle; something that I’ve struggled with since my days as a newborn photographer. Over the years, I have learned the importance of saying “no” because I know the stress that comes with having more work than I can cope with is […]

A few weeks ago I ventured out to Ottawa for a quick weekend getaway and stayed at the Westin Hotel. While I did spend a bit of time experiencing what the hotel had to offer, I also ventured out to explore Ottawa as well. Our nation’s capital has the county’s most national museums and is […]

The Westin Hotel in Ottawa is a truly relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Located in the heart of Ottawa, the Westin Hotel is conveniently located near a number of city’s local attractions. The atmosphere is homely and minimalistic, with an array of neutrals with small pops of colour.

Vegas is filled with so many unique places to discover and explore. On my last visit, I found myself chatting with a local photographer at an industry party. I mentioned that I was looking for a cute local coffee shop and he recommended I check out Gäbi Coffee and Bakery, I decided to stop in and it did not disappoint!

Vegas is a regular destination for me, and I found myself in the bustling city this past week for a photography conference. Personally, I’m not a fan of staying right in the middle of the commotion on the strip, so this time, I scouted for a bit more of a retreat. Along my search, I found the SLS Las Vegas and hit the jackpot.

Tulum Mexico is a bohemian dream located just 1.5hrs from Cancun. The town has a laid back and relaxed vibe. While Cancun, Playa Del Carmen and Maya Riviera take the top spots for most visited areas in Mexico for tourists, Tulum is not a destination that should be overlooked here’s why.

On my recent trip to Tulum, I stayed at the Aruma Hotel + Boutique. The hotel is beautiful and is situated right in the heart of Downtown Tulum, close to everything, including restaurants and shopping opportunities. The town has a laid-back, bohemian vibe with some of the best service that I’ve experienced on my recent […]

Prior to hopping on the plane to Florida, I was home in Toronto, and it was bitter, cold and -20 degrees. Leaving the cold behind, I made my way to the CIRC Hotel in Hollywood, Florida and just 10 minutes away from the Fort Lauderdale International Airport and just a short drive to Miami.

Sometimes, you need a staycation at home. Toronto is where I hang my many hats, but I desperately needed to venture out with the Do The Daniel Toronto team for some serious rejuvenation. The city is buzzing with tons of shops, eateries, and unique hotels, but the state-of-the-art Toronto Marriott Markham had great reviews and […]
