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.

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.

SOME LIFE CHALLENGES

Lifestyle

A little life update

Turns out, being in a Canadian/American relationship isn’t the easiest thing ever. There are some challenges that are a bit more out of my control than I’d like to admit.

Today’s video covers my relationship, why I am always traveling, marriage… all the real for realz stuff.

This video is also a bit different than most of the vlogs I’ve been filming lately. Feels like it has been a while since we’ve just sat and chatted, so wanted to try this new style of video so we can hopefully get to know eachother better :). It can be a wee bit hard to connect when I am out and about adventuring and vlogging!

So yeah, if you liked this style of video please leave a comment and let me know!

BEACH DAY IN TULUM

Lifestyle

Made it to the beach!

HOW GORGEOUS IS TULUM?

I feel like they’ve figured out my aesthetic (and every other millennial’s.) Cute, pretend rustic, healthy organic food, and mezcal cocktails up the ying yang. This is the place to be in Mexico, that is for damn sure.

Made the worlds shortest vlog the other day at the beach, mostly because we were just getting festive all day long and not doing too much of anything. Recorded anyways, because I want to share it all. 🙂

One thing that kind of sucks rn in Tulum is the mass amounts of seaweed washing in. The seaweed has turned the normally crystal clear water dark red. It kind of looks like blood and low key creeps me out. Also I tried to swim in it (cuz im desperate like that) and the bugs were ABUNDANT so I bailed on that real quick.

But other than the bugged up seaweeded up water, was V impressed with the beach in Tulum.

This was our first day visiting it as our Airbnb is about a 20 min cab ride from the area. (more on this later.)

Anyways, hope you enjoyed today’s vlog!

FLYING ON NO SLEEP

Lifestyle

Ok so turns out, pulling an all-nighter at age 27 is NOT THE SAME as pulling an all-nighter at 20. This is something new I discovered this week. When I, being the smarty pants I am, decided to fly to Tulum on no sleep (like, literally didn’t sleep the entire night) it was the roughest day I’ve had in a while.

At age 20 when I would not sleep one night, the next day I just wouldn’t feel so great. At 27, you can SEE IT IN MY FACE. Everything hurt, I looked wrong (yes, just wrong) and I think I am fighting a cold because of it.

Oh the joys of getting older.

Regardless of my sleep deprivation, I decided to vlog my trip from Vancouver –> Tulum anyways. And yeah… the video above is what we got lol!

Plus I added in a little AirBnb tour from Tulum, so you can see where we are staying. There will be more in upcoming vlogs, I was pretty out of it this entire video so it wasn’t exactly the most organized lol!

Anyways, hope you enjoyed the vlog!

LEARNING TO VLOG

Lifestyle

Turns out, ain’t that easy…

hahahahah omfg this video was so brutal to film/edit. “Reacting to my old videos” was so cringe-worthy.

I WAS SO AWKWARD.

And the worst part? The videos I was reacting to are less than 6 months old. I can’t deal with 6 months ago Robyn.

So yeah, if you want to laugh with/at me about my extreme awkwardness in my old videos….. watch the one above.

BUY MY NISSAN

Lifestyle

Selling my Nissan X-Trail!

This is by far my favourite video I’ve made yet! lol figured I might as well make fun of my car, while simultaneously selling the HECK out of it. haha

Anyways, if you are in the market for a reliable adventure-mobile, watch the video above or email me at buymynissanvancouver@gmail.com. If you aren’t in the market for a new (and sexy) ride, still watch the video because in my biased opinion it is hilarious.

My boyfriend told me he likes to watch how funny I think I am. But I mean, if I dont think I’m funny who will?! Always gotta be your own cheerleader ya know?

OK OFF TO VLOG ANOTHER EPIC CANADIAN DAY!

byeeee <3

PIZZA THERAPY

Lifestyle


the first Vancouver, Canada vlog!

Here we areeeeeee! Back in ye ol’ Canada eh.

Today’s vlog will be the first from my Vancouver series this summer. Kind of stuck to the basics for this one, Gastown, Yaletown, etc. Because I was having a PMS day and couldn’t deal with much adventuring lol.

For what it’s worth, pizza really does help LOL. (watch the video above and that will make a bit more sense haha)

Hope you liked this video! Make sure you leave a thumbs up if you did 🙂

BACK IN BUSINESS

Lifestyle

All the dongles have arrived!!!! Vlogs are BACK BABY!

Ah yes, the glorious day when you solve all your technical issues and can finally VLOG AGAIN!

And today’s vlog is highly embarrassing. Mostly because it does not do great things for my reputation as a competant driver. Evidently, you CAN crash a car while you are not even in it. It really does take talent.

LOL.

fml tho. I accidentally got this on camera and debated editing it out. Maybe I should have considering I wasn’t techhhhnically insured to drive this car (TECHNICALLY…) but YOLO right?

So yeah. Watch my new vlog from Nosara, Costa Rica to learn more about how bad I am at driving. Good times all around.

hehe.

OK off to go workout!

pce n’ blessins.

THE FULL STORY

Lifestyle

Why I am in Costa Rica, and what it’s like to date across boarders.

Okayyyyyy so I was hella nervous to tell this story. Not entirely sure why since I am just explaining how I followed the rules like a good girl.

NONETHELESS.

It took a bit of courage to hit upload on this one for some reason haha. 🙈

So pretty please with cherries on top, head over to my Youtube Channel and leave a like + comment on this video!

This was a bit of a different style of video for me, and I really feel like it’s my best one yet. 💪🏻

First, I shared the FULL story behind my Costa Rica trip and the unique challenges associated with being in a cross-boarder relationship. (I’m Canadian, and my boyfriend is American.) I know other people have experienced similar things when dating between different countries, and it’s so rarely talked about! So I wanted to be the one to do it. Naturally. 😉

Second, this is also a vlog from our day spent in Montezuma, Costa Rica. I really liked Montezuma (even though it was small and super hippie lol) and wanted to share the experience with you.

So yeah!

Watch the video above to learn about what it’s like to be a Canadian dating an American. And how we have figured out how to spend more than 182 days together at a time.

Thanks for being here! Love you to the moon and back. ❤
