I feel so lucky to live in beautiful British Columbia, and especially in Vancouver, because Whistler is only an hour and a half away, and once you get to Whistler it feels like you are a million miles away from everything - it is so serene and beautiful and magical, I love making the trip as often as I can!

I grew up snowboarding, so it is always such a treat to get a chance to go snowboarding and feel the sunshine on your face and just spend a wonderful day outside getting so much fresh air. 

We headed to Whistler (even the drive is breathtaking - seeing where the mountains covered in snow meet the ocean - Seriously, I highly recommend anyone who hasn't explored Vancouver & Whistler to make the trip, it is out of this world!) for a two day adventure, staying at the amazing Nita Lake Lodge for our two nights which is nestled right beside the lake, making for a breathtaking view with your morning cup of coffee!

We headed up the mountain both days snowboarding as many runs as we could fit in (the weather was amazing with blue skies & fresh powder, heaven! My favourite run was Cloud 9 on 7th Heaven) and after a full day on the hill, enjoyed such a delicious dinner at Aura Restaurant at Nita Lake Lodge.  It was just so lovely to walk around the village, as well - And have a beer on the patio after a long day on the mountain.

There is so much to do in Whistler, it is wild. You can see my other Whistler adventures (it is super fun in the summer, too!) here , here here & here.

I am obsessed with cream...spending lots of time traveling (in airplanes and hotels which can really dry out your skin) in the sun and snowboarding can really do a number on my skin - especially my hands. I discovered Skinfix Ultra Rich Hand Cream and it is honestly something I can't do without!

It is super rich yet is light & quick absorbing, so it doesn't leave your hands feeling greasy at all, just hydrated & soft! It has natural coconut and sunflower oils along with vitamin e so it is really soothing. All Skinfix products are also cruelty free, which is always so important and makes me love them that much more.

I am also addicted to the Skinfix Vanilla Mint Lip Repair Balm...it keeps my lips hydrated and smells so good!

Even in the winter, I love wearing romantic, flowing dresses & skits...I am a permanent summer girl!

This is my version of a "cozy" winter look...I am still such a fan of crop tops because they are so easy to wear with high waisted skirts, jeans & shorts (and are super flattering) and this sheer skirt is one of my all time favourites - so romantic and ethereal.

When I was younger, I actually wanted to grow up to be a Paleontologist (Was obsessed with Dinosaurs & India Jones!) so I fell in love with Rexy The Coach Dinosaur, naturally!

Coach Executive Creative Director Stuart Vevers created Rexy (and an entire story & friends to go along with her...yup she's a girl!) and after appearing on a men's sweater, everyone became a fan.

I love this cute Rexy Puzzle, but if you are looking for something to wear, you can find Rexy & her friends on everything from tee's to jackets to bags to charms.
