A close friend of mine, recently returned from a trip to Nicaragua and she told me it was one of the best adventures she has ever been on. She shared with me, that it had exceeded her expectations in every way. Still not on the tourist's radar, she told me that it was fairly easy travel around, gorgeous beaches, and nice little hotels spotted throughout the country.

I love film festivals and love documentary films even more. I find this genre of movies more engaging and interesting that major box office flicks. They matter, and here's why.

Menswear is all about building a closet with investment pieces and less about trendy items. Look for top styles that are bold in colour and cuts, and don't be shy to wear pieces with prints, as this will show your innate fashion sense.

The best travel looks are made-up of comfortable yet stylish pieces that can be worn in a variety of scenarios. Simplicity is key. I designed a comfortable black dress thinking of travel. You can pair it with flip-flops for the beach or with leather sandals for dinner. Add a nice scarf and some jewelry and you have created a different look with the same dress.

When travelling, the skin can become rather dehydrated. Often at times, the business, associated with travel can add stress, which also interrupts your skin's natural levels of moisture production. If flying, or spending more times outdoors, the water levels in the skin can also be robbed by recycled air and the environment (sun/ wind).

For me, the best part of traveling is when I chat with the locals. I learn from them what life is like in the town or city. Where do they eat? What shops do they visit? It can be an amazing way to explore a new destination. I asked those very questions to locals in Victoria, and here's what they told me.

Video takes up a lot of memory. Either when you are shooting video or when it is stored on your computer. I know there have been a few times when I have been in the middle of shooting a video and the caption on my DSLR camera screen says "memory card full."

Recently, I was lucky enough to speak with Linda Ly owner and founder of Onyx Aesthetics Studio. Linda shared with me the hottest trends for nails this spring and also the top tips for shellac manicures and pedicures. I love shellac polish.

If you need to go to a different location to shoot a video, you will be surprised how quickly the weight of the gear can add up (trust me having a great bag can make it so much easier and faster to get to a new location and set up quickly).

Studies show sloppy/degraded video can be tolerated as long as the sound is solid. The converse isn't true. Have a beautiful image but your sound is distorted, echoes or inconsistent? Nobody will watch. Invest in learning how to capture good sound and acquiring the tools to do so.

I love spring! The colours are brighter and the layers are lighter. There are so many new styles and trends out this season. Pastels are big, men's watches are on-point and you can never go wrong with a nude shoe.
