Spa days are one of my absolute favourite things to do, especially with a girlfriend! My great friend Jillian and I spent the afternoon at the amazing CHI Spa at the Shangri-La Hotel in Vancouver and had so much fun getting spoiled and catching up.

We started our day lounging on the pool deck sipping on the yummiest smoothies, then headed in for a light lunch before switching into our bathing suits and hitting the hot tub.  After soaking and enjoying some fruity bubbles we headed into to get our massages...we both wanted to experience treatments from their new Sense of Adventure Menu offering traditional spa techniques from Asia. Jillian went with the Royal Duality Massage (2 sets of hands, yes please!) and as I had great memories of traveling to Thailand with my sister and getting massages there, I went for the Thai Massage - and it was divine!!

After the massage it was wonderful to take some time to relax in the steam room (each suite for the massages are stunning, with private bathrooms with soaker tubs & a steam room - heaven!) and then enjoyed some delicious tea before stepping back into the real world.

The day was an absolute dream, and I am so excited to that I have teamed up with the CHI Spa to offer you a chance to win a Thai massage at the CHI Spa for yourself! You can find more and enter via Instagram here. (Jillian is offering a giveaway too, make sure to visit her site for more info!)

Each month I round up a few of my favourite pieces from the best Australian shop, Beginning Boutique and I am obsessed with this month's picks! This grey tee is actually my top pick, it is so comfy and looks cute with a skirt but would look equally cool with denim cut off's or boyfriend jeans & heels.

A little white dress is a must have for summer...so easy to wear with flats during the day and perfect with a pair of heels for night...I especially love white eyelet, so romantic! Mules also have a special place in my heart, too, and this two toned pair go with absolutely everything, you can't go wrong.

I have been a long-time fan at Urban Outfitters, and now that they ship to Canada, I am one happy online shopper. Check out their summer collections here or shop my look below.

Between photo shoots, meetings, events & travel, I don't often have time to enjoy a shopping day, so when I do get the opportunity to head to the shops it is so important to have all of my favourite stores in one place.

I spent the day at Park Royal shopping up a storm, visiting BCBGMaxazria (where I bought the maxi dress I am trying on in the photos, so perfect for summer weddings!) Anthropologie (the only Vancouver location to now carry the Petites Shop, so exciting!), LOFT, Michael Kors & Sephora (Where I had a Colour IQ Session, and learnt that the Sephora at Park Royal is the only one to offer free beauty classes - I am definitely heading back for the Day to Night Smokey Eye Tutorial.)

Park Royal is just so pretty to walk around, and with new shops coming in all the time (Stuart Weitzman will be opening in July, can't wait!) it is a must visit in Vancouver. I love that it is so close to the downtown core as well, just a quick zip across the stunning Lions Gate Bridge and you are in shopping heaven.

After shopping I had a delicious lunch on the Cactus Club Patio right by the water fountain and small pond in The Village at Park Royal. It was so beautiful & relaxing, the best way to end a successful shopping day!

I am always on the hunt for things that make everyday tasks easier, so of course I was so excited to discover the brand new virtual marketplace app, breez. I am a huge online shopper so this app is a dream, allowing you to buy and sell new and pre-loved items, all from your phone. 

I teamed up with breez to sell a few of my pieces (you can download and shop my closet here) and we had such a fun day doing a photo shoot and celebrating the launch of the app at the breez Trading Post. Jill & Kiara are also selling their goodies on the app, make sure to take a peek at all of our curated shops, these two have some amazing pieces and there are so many beautiful things to discover including some stunning furniture  - I definitely have my eye on a few things already!

See what I have in my breez shop by downloading the app here & happy shopping!
