Home For The Holidays! Lima, Peru

16 Dec

Marca Peru LogoI’m super excited to be writing this blog post from my home country of Peru! I was born in Lima, the capital city of Peru, and moved to Canada when I was 7 years old. Even though I have spent most of my life in Canada, nothing will take way what it means to me to identify myself as a proud Peruvian!

This is my first trip home on my own as I always come with my family, usually over the Christmas season. The fun part about this trip is this time I get to do it my way! I will be visiting various restaurants, cities, attractions and venues during my stay. Fortunately, I will be going on all these adventures with my family; therefore you will get an idea of the top places to visit from top locals!

Peru On A World Map

Peru Map with CitiesPeru has made a strong mark on the world stage by winning various awards in 2013. Usually, when you hear about Peru, there is a direct link to Machu Picchu; since it is one of the 7 wonders of the world. Travelers that visit Machu Picchu fly into its capital city, stay for a day or two in Lima, then skip towards Machu Picchu. Lima, Peru and its surrounding areas have SO much to offer and experience! Especially during the Christmas season as it blooms with cheer and spirit.

In 2013, Machu Picchu, Peru was named as number 1 on a list of the” Top 10 World Landmarks” by Trip Advisor. For the second year in a row, Peru also won the World’s Leading Culinary Destination  by the Wold Travel Awards, among other honourary awards. Not just saying this because I’m Peruvian, but the food is delicious here!

Marca Peru

Marca Peru is a promotional program created by the Ministry of Tourism in Peru that is made up of 3 parts; tourism, investments and exports. Of course, we will focus on tourism in this case. It was launched in 2012 with the following video:

This video caught my attention as soon as I saw it and since then I have been so intrigued, even more than before, about all that my country has to offer. Even though I was born here, the country is constantly changing and growing so quickly so there is so much for me to visit and learn about every time I come back.

From nature, to culture, to adventure and gastronomy, you can find all the info on the Marca Peru Travel website.

Throughout my visit, I will be writing about different experiences in and around Lima, Peru. Stay tuned to learn more about what this beautiful country has to offer. Whether you are Peruvian or a tourist, I promise to make my posts super insightful! After all, it’s true what they say, everything you need is in Peru!

With Love,

The Next Chapter

23 Jul

I’m back!
Yes, I know… It has been a while!

I had to put my beloved blog on hold during my last year of university (you may know how crazy busy that time gets!) and following that I took some time to launch my career; which I have done successfully.

You may notice that I have changed the name from “The Fabulous Life of that PR Lady”  to “A Style Soiree”. I did a little bit of a re-brand for various reasons. I have grown personally since my last post and I want this blog to grow with me. I have also branched out from PR to a career path that also involves advertising and marketing; as well as other very versatile roles.

Why “A Style Soiree” you ask?

I wanted to blend fashion, beauty, travel and wonderful every day experiences into my lovely blog; essentially mixing in my lifestyle and turning it into a delightful soiree – a social gathering of fun!

I hope you enjoy my upcoming posts and all that my next chapter has to offer.
If you’re new to reading my blog – Welcome to my style soiree!

With love,
Christie
