Did you go skiing?

January 5, 2021

This was the question we were asked all day. Hate to break it to ya but we were the nerds snowshoeing yesterday! It is something that I can tick off my list but it’s probably more of a one time thing. So here’s the scoop…. Have a plan on where you’re snowshoeing: We didn’t and it would’ve been a game changer Don’t be afraid to ask the rental…

Whale Watching

September 23, 2020

Since it’s Thanksgiving weekend, I’m going to shoutout good days spent with family. Whether it be randomly driving to Cypress a few days ago with my sister, going for a bike ride along the River with my dad or a random adventure with my mom, I’m so grateful for days like these. At the beginning of this month, on September 6th, I took my mom whale watching. This…

Pinnacle Hotel Review

July 8, 2020

A few Saturdays ago, I went downtown for a girl’s weekend. We decided to stay at the Pinnacle for its location and view! Preliminary Evaluation: For the price (after we split it), the night we had, the close proximity to Granville and of course the view (deal breaker!), I’d recommend! Service: Our initial experience was upon arrival when we phoned to ask about parking. The lady was very…

Kelowna AirBNB Review

June 9, 2020

Two weekends ago I went on a mini road trip with one of my best friends. Most AirBNB’s aren’t fully booked right now so there were plenty of options! We came across this cute one located in the beautiful Upper Mission area of Kelowna. We had a lovely 2 night stay here & thought I’d share some details. If you’re looking for a clean, modern and affordable place…

Hotel Belmont Review

February 15, 2020

“The Party Hotel”. Vancouver’s most modern, hype and aesthetic hotel. 1 night, two double beds, for my sister’s birthday weekend As per usual, here’s the scoop, real & honest, sometimes petty and always personalized. A big reason for booking this hotel was because of the way it was advertised online. The way its targeted towards a younger, spunkier crowd through the bright coloured pictures and fun décor is…

Sutton Hotel

November 30, 2019

At the end of last October I had the opportunity to stay at the Sutton Hotel in Vancouver with four of my best friends! We all enjoyed our one night stay & had a great experience. Like anything, with the good, there’s also always room for improvement. Most of the stuff in my reviews are to be taken lightly as I purposely critic in a satirical way &…

Lake Whatcom AirBNB

September 12, 2019

Last weekend I went on a little adventure with my mom for her birthday! Instead of hanging out downtown, we opted for a little AirBNB near the water. This is Quin’s Lake House.  As you can see it is one of the most charming and tranquil place you’ll find on the website, that isn’t too far from the lower mainland.  The Atmosphere As soon as we walked in,…

MAT Trip 2017: Third Day at Warner Bros

July 8, 2019

This post has taken awhile to publish. Mostly because I had written the whole thing somewhere and misplaced it before I could type it up. One of the most irking things is losing work that you put effort into and I tend to become unmotivated to restart. Definitely a habit to fix. So here I am, rambling aside, this is what went down this day. You start this…

Skipping through mini suns

October 5, 2018

Mother natured allowed for the sun to radiate through and illuminate the beautiful fields (plus the lower mainland!). These random days of sun are so glorious knowing that there will be an ample amount of showers to come. The Chilliwack Sunflower Fest has since passed, but I thought I’d share a couple photos we took while walking among the rows. Lately I’ve been trying to make an effort…

MAT Trip 2017: First LA Day

June 28, 2018

Thought it was about time I shared about my sister and I’s trip to L.A. last June. Yup, it’s been over a year oopsie! Okay, so this trip was fairly last minute since we had just planned it about a month prior. Since I had just graduated a few days before it was time to fly on over there I couldn’t have more more excited. That plus the…

My Stay at the Beverly Hills Peninsula

July 5, 2017

A little over a week from now my sister and I were spoiled teenagers and lived an absolute California dream. That’s right, instead of our Aunt flying down to Vancouver, we took a trip to LA the land of amazingness to experience a new culture and of course for some adventure. Our first night was spent at the Beverly Hills Peninsula which is extravagantly posh and exceeds expectations. After walking through…

Sheraton Vancouver Hotel Review

December 31, 2016

4.5/5 stars Unlike some of the other hotels I’ve stayed at downtown, I didn’t get a chance to fully explore the Sheraton. My stay consisted of two nights both of which were enjoyable. Upon arriving it was a quick check in and the room was easy to find. Unfortunately the first room we entered did not meet our expectations therefore we upgraded to a different one. That room…

Hopping into Rivers With Horses

May 3, 2016

       As I mentioned on social media early today, I was fortunate to join a trail ride with some family members today. The weather was beautiful (30 degrees!), the scenery was amazing & the company was lovely. Personally I really enjoyed it because I haven’t ridden a horse for at least a year & missed it I’ve always wanted to ride through a creek/river and that was…
