This year has flown by, I swear the next time I blink it will be Christmas morning. One of my favourite parts of the holiday season is finding and giving perfect presents. Here are some of my favourite gift ideas, click on the pictures to learn more:
Are you constantly busy and on the run? I sure am. From school, to consulting, to blogging, to working out, to volunteer volleyball coaching, to spending time with friends and family, my time is limited. I love to cook, but it requires a lot of time and energy, making it sometimes impossible. Finding quick, yummy and fresh meal options is always a score! When the opportunity arose to to collaborate with Edo Japan, I couldn’t wait to explore their offerings. Continue reading “Edo Your Heart Out”

Ryan and I had a delicious dinner at Quattro when we were in Whistler. Quattro is an Italian restaurant in Whistler Village ( it also has a sister location in North Vancouver). The restaurant has an elegant ambiance and Ryan and I were both impressed with the extensive wine list. Over the course of the evening, the manager/sommelier explained that the staff would be visiting Italy in the fall for some further wine research. At Quattro, they take their wine very seriously, ensuring a very high quality and high value selection. Continue reading “Where to Eat Whistler: Quattro”
Being from North Vancouver, Whistler has always been a popular vacation spot for my family and our friends. In the winter, the skiing is amazing and in the summer there is so much to explore. Typically I have participated in similar activities when I have visited, but this trip Ryan and I had the opportunity to do something completely new, Vallea Lumina.

I had a blast attending the Theatre Under the Stars 42nd Street Preview Event on Tuesday night with my friend Lina. We had the opportunity to meet the cast before the show as well as other bloggers/youtubers and actors. I had so much fun chatting with other like minded creatives. We enjoyed a complementary local wine tasting and some popcorn before heading to our seats to enjoy the show. Continue reading “Theatre Under The Stars”
To make the most of our long weekend, Hailey and I planned to hike Brandywine Falls. We invited my Mom for the adventure too and headed out Monday morning. Brandywine Falls is located in Whistler. I had been to the lookout before but never the hike to the base. The fact that the hike was all the way in Whistler had discouraged me a little bit. However, the drive is unparalleled in beauty and time passed by very quickly ( especially because we were listening to a podcast about America’s First Female Serial Killer, Hailey’s favourite!).

Vancouver Hidden Gems is a series that will highlight some of my favourite Vancouver spots for food, drinks, entertainment and more.
Every week my friend Hailey and I try to go on at least one new adventure. One of our latest favourites was the Bowen Island Lookout Trail. This trail is located on Cypress mountain. I hadn’t been to Cypress since the winter and forgot how long it takes to drive up the mountain. Though the drive takes a while, it is incredibly scenic and definitely pumped me up for the hike!
