Travel Blogger

Hi I am Marisa! Also known as “The Daydream Diaries”, a travel & lifestyle blogger from Canada

The Daydream Diaries is an online destination where the love of travel meets the love of style. It is set to inspire you to take an adventure, add a new place to your bucket list or simply take you away from reality for a second and into a great daydream. Marisa gives you insight into the best cities, travel hacks, & hotels. As Marisa has grown though, the site has steadily evolved  as well. It has flourished into a truly diverse lifestyle destination which also covers fitness, wellness, and parenting tips 

Marisa Mercanti was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and is proud to still call Canada her home (despite suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder).  Her love of travel, fashion and design brought her to New York where she studied and then interned at Teen Vogue to living in Los Angeles where she worked alongside Sharon Sacks planning fancy parties for Hollywood’s A list. While building her corporate career, she also built an online presence through The Daydream Diaries and has become one of Canada’s top travel bloggers. Marisa continues to share everything alongside her husband Aaron and her little daughter Chloe who is 1 years old !
