When I first started blogging, I had no idea how to make money blogging. I didn’t even know you could ACTUALLY make an income from your blog unless you were a huge blogger with millions of fans and followers.

At the beginning of June, I was invited for a staycation at Toronto’s new Hotel X. I realized the only thing better than a staycation is a staycation with your best friend, so I knew I had to invite Tracey along.
