I had the pleasure of tasting Montreal's famed Chef @martin_juneau dishes and was pleasantly surprised when he presented me with a personalized signed cookbook! A beautiful and memorable evening! #thefoodtease #foodiegram #chef #cheflife #restaurant #foodblogger #foodie #gratitude #gatineau #gatineaurestaurant #lovemyjob #nomnom #hotinthekitchen #luxlife
  • Being surrounded by thousands upon thousands of marigolds during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead Festival) and taking part of the festivities @xcaretpark in Mexico was a special and memorable experience. @xcaretpark has a variety of activities to experience during the festival. It is believed that the scent of the marigold flower guides loved ones who have passed on, to find their way back home during this special time. An amazing press trip! #tbt #thefoodtease #press #presstrip #diasdelosmuertos #dayofthedead #festival #travel #travelpic #travelgram #travelphoto #travelblogger #instatraveling #onceinalifetimeexperience #marigold #mexico #mexicanfestival #gratitude #bucketlist #traveling
