LONG DISTANCE LIFE

Lifestyle

lol excuse the clickbait title

Gotta keep things dramatic for YouTube, you know how it isssss.

SO yeah, my video schedule got a bit messed up due to some horrid food poisoning I got a few days before we left Tulum. Now, I am back to health and in Vancouver! Very nice to be able to eat and drink water again. Montezuma certainly got his revenge on me……….🤢 tmi? 😂

MOVING RIGHT ALONG.

I am actually really enjoying the cool weather here in Vancouver right now, it’s a nice change to the blistering heat in Mexico.

Filming something very exciting today, that will be live on Sunday! Gotta go get ready for that, so I will talk to ya soonies.

EATING BUGS IN TULUM

Travel

NEVER. AGAIN.

This was probably Troy’s favourite thing he got to witness. So evil.

That’s what love is though, right? Making your partner consume gross bugs? Yeah… something like that.

Ok team, new vlog for you today. This was SUCH a fun day, minus the bug eating incident. We managed to find Pablo Escobar’s old hideout in Tulum, which was definitely one of the coolest things we saw.

Hope you enjoy this video!!

Me posing about at Kin Toh

Hey bloggity friends! How are you today?

Happy to share today’s vlog with you – it was such a fun day and I love being able show you what things are REALLY like, outside the instagram post. You know?

Highly recommend trying out Kin Toh restaurant in Tulum. The venue itself was a whole experience AND the food was super delicious! Also if you want to sit in one of those fancy “nest” seats…. make sure you grab a group of friends before you go. $700 USD min spend is a pretty penny. It’s so weird that literally nobody talks about that on social media. SO many people are posting photos up the ying yang from the nests at Kin Toh but nobody mentions you can’t actually eat there without agreeing to a min spend. $700 USD was for the “worst” nest, the nicer ones only go up from there. Either way, we had a beyond fabulous time at Kin Toh. Definitely my favourite meal of the trip.

Can’t wait to talk to you again, thanks for being here!

i QUIT

Lifestyle

After a year, I’m finally ready to talk about it…

Literally took me one full year after saying “i QUIT!” (obviously I did not give my resignation in those exact words lol but for dramatic effect let’s pretend I did) to make this video.

Even after publishing this and explaining why I left my 9 – 5 job, I feel like there is still so much left unsaid. For example, the many more “whys” that I didn’t have time to include/didn’t feel comfortable including (yet…)

There is also the question of HOW I did it. This in itself was such a major endeavour I couldn’t possibly have fit it into this video. If you want to know the “how” behind saving up enough money to be able to become comfortably self-employed, let me know. I will make it happen for you. It was just too much to put in this one.

Anyways, I asked my YouTube viewers to comment on this video telling me more about what they do for a living and who they are! I would love to know more about YOU and what you do, or wish you were doing! Feel free to leave a comment here or leave one on my youtube. I want to get to know you better 🙂

Ok hope you liked this video!

Talk soon.

SUYTUN CENOTE, TULUM

Travel

Suytun Cenote, Tulum

Well this was certainly a neat day.

AND BY NEAT I MEAN IT WAS EPIC. Beyond epic. I can’t even believe a place like Suytun Cenote exists. Truly felt magical.

This ended up being a weird two day vlog, but I think it worked out okay as a mini weekend episode? Maybe? What u think…

ANYWHO.

I posted about this on my instagram/facebook pages yesterday but wanted to address it here too. These last few months I’ve put my focus 100% into vlogging so that I can improve my skill and make fun episodes that I want to watch with friends and family. Vlogging is super fun, and I love it the mostest. BUT, something I really want to start integrating back into Skinny Belle is more personal videos. The goal being getting to know eachother better and talk about the stuff that isn’t just sunny travel videos. You know, the messier stuff. LIFE stuff.

Sooo yeah! If you have any topic requests, slide on into my dms or comment below or email me. Whatever you like 🙂 (no subject is off limits 🙂 )
