One of the reasons why I love winter so much is because of the holidays. I love the feeling of winter slowly taking over and everything starting to light up around you. I enjoy going shopping during this time and of course, I love planning dinners with families and close loved ones. Amongst all the planning, the holidays sometimes don’t go as planned and I am left with bills to pay post-holiday season. This happened to me some years back and I was left paying bills for months.
As this is Mikael’s first holiday season, I wanted to prepare ahead of time and set up a budget for holidays. Luckily, I had my PC Financial World Elite Mastercard to get me started. What I love about the card is earning 3X the PC Optimum points and being able to redeem them for PC products. To top it off, the PC points can be redeemed at @loblawson, @Joefresh, and @shoppersdrugmartofficial to name a few.
My honeymoon was one of the best vacations I have ever had. We touched 3 continents in 3 weeks and explored so much before starting our journey together. We booked our Honeymoon 4-5 months before the travel and were luckily able to get all the best spots. While it was Sarmad’s idea to explore Asia, I was more fixated on Dubai. So we decided to make a trip to both countries plus made a short visit to Europe’s very own romantic city Paris. This was back in August 2015. Now when I look back, it’s important to me to document the journey on my blog. Let’s have a look at my honeymoon guide and the hotels I stayed at.
When it comes to wedding highlights, I have so many moments but I am going to be sharing my favourite ones here. Coming from a Pakistani family, I had a long traditional wedding that lasted for days in Toronto. The amount of work that goes into planning is overwhelming but I am glad how it all turned out and I was definitely satisfied at the end. I basically had three main events, starting from Henna day (Mehndi), to main Shaadi day and finally the reception (Valima). Here’s a preview from each one of the days:
