Weekend In My Life (Vancouver)!!

This weekend I decided to create a post about my home city and what a weekend in my life is like here!! I work Monday to Friday so I always try to enjoy my weekends as much as possible!! The weather in Vancouver has been so nice recently so this weekend I went to the beach a bunch and really tried to soak in the sun while it's here.

I went for dinner at Cactus Club on friday night & to a place in Yaletown called Tavern!

On Saturday morning I went for brunch at a place my family frequents called the Reagle Beagle and then for coffee at a great place downtown called Quantam:
Today (Sunday) I was able to get over to Granville island for coffee with a friend and it was so great!! Granville Island is amazing because there are always street performers which is super relaxing for a Sunday morning.

Five Trip Essentials That I Never Leave Behind!!

Weekend Away in LA 2.0!!

While I was in LA this passed weekend the weather hit an all time high with a record breaking 44 degrees celsius... It felt crazy like a heat wave. I went to LA for four nights and as usual had the best time! I went to great restaurants, and had a great experience. The main restaurant I was there for was CATCH LA, they just added many new items to their menu and the venue is literally beautiful.









Food:
CATCH LA: I got the opportunity to try a bunch of different things while visiting CATCH LA. The crispy cauliflower and "Hit Me" cake were my two favourite things that I tried on the menu. I love the atmosphere of CATCH LA and yet again had the best experience. CATCH is overall an incredible restaurant and I would for sure recommend you to try it out! It's located in West Hollywood on a roof top.


TLT Mexican:
We stumbled upon this place called TLT in Westwood! The food was amazing and the prices were very fair. We also got to try one of their mango drinks which is not in the…

Weekend Away In Whistler!!

This weekend I went to Whistler! It was an awesome time (even though it rained most of the time). The highlight for me was when we went up the mountain on the gondola to the peak and walked the new suspension bridge and had poutine too! We saw a few bears while we were on the gondola on the way up. It was cool to see the mountain when there isn't a ton of snow on it! The new suspension bridge is cool but it's really shaky which kinda scared me! I would definitely go on it again though because it has a great view! While in Whistler we also went to a hot tub on the lake which was obviously super relaxing and nice!

Here are some pictures from the top!









Since I knew we'd be hiking around a bit I threw on all my favourite RYU gear which included their new varsity shirts to match a ton of schools! Mine is yellow and blue for Queen's University as you can see!! The shirts are super comfy and I really like how they match my school colours too!



Overall it was really nice to get …

Hiking The Squamish Chief!!

This weeks post is about the Squamish Chief which I hiked on Sunday! It took about two hours in total but it was pretty tough! I expected it to be a bit easier. There's ladders you have to climb and ropes and it's a pretty high incline! We went to the first peak. The view at the top is so nice and of course makes the whole hike worth it! The Sea To Sky highway that we drove from Vancouver on is such a nice drive too! We got really lucky because it was so nice out and right when we got to the bottom and got in the car it started to pour rain!!

Here are some photos from the top!!

How To Stay Positive!!

This topic is so hard to write and give advice about because I feel like different things work for different people but this post will give you an insight into how I try to stay as positive as possible and maybe give you some tips that may help you! I know sometimes it can be really hard to be positive and happy! I try to think as much as possible of how short life is and always ask myself if what I'm struggling with will matter in two to four years?? If not, try to forget about it!!

1. Go for a run/walk/workout! Fitness is so good for your mental health.

2. Read a good book. Recently I have been reading Twelve Rules For Life by Jordan Peterson and it has been a great distraction.

3. Remember that your positivity depends on what you allow your mind to think about! If you are thinking negative thoughts, distract yourself by thinking of positive things! This can be hard to do but it can be done!

4. Write what you're feeling down! I know you don't always feel like talking out…

My Week Away In LA!!

Just got back from LA so I thought this week I would share some pictures, restaurants, a hotel recommendation, some night life recommendations, and how great my trip went! Two friends and I went to LA and stayed for a week! We met great people there and had a lot of fun!

Below is a picture from a place called Carrero Cafe! They're specialty is to print whatever you want on the top of your latte! It was really cute and the coffee was great.



We also went to an awesome cupcake place that has a cupcake ATM outside! It is called Sprinkles Cupcakes and it is a must go if you are ever in LA! Sprinkles Cupcakes is located in the middle of Beverly Hills! My personal favourite cupcake is the red velvet!
On our second last day we went to the Beverly Hills Hotel! The food was great and there are a lot of good picture opportunities there too! I got the Strawberry Waffles and they were so tasty!
I don't have too many pictures from going out as far as night life in LA but we went to Nighting…
