When your career involves traversing the globe for inspiration, you learn pretty quickly what your travel essentials are. Just ask lifestyle and travel influencer Zaynab Bajwa, aka @thenewyorknest. Zee, who is also restoring her 100-year-old home, invited us to join her for a day during a recent stay at Canopy by Hilton Toronto Yorkville where we chatted about fashion, design and everything in between. Top takeaways? Go big or go home — for jewelry, that is — and green design accents are the way forward.
