St. Regis Hotel Vancouver
Vancouver, you were so lovely. My friend, Enocha and I snuck off for a few days to the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada. We had so many adventures during our short stay, a few of them being visiting the Capilano Suspension Bridge, biking around Granville Park, taking a road trip to Whistler, lunching at the revolving restaurant, "flying" over Canada, a sunset boat trip and so many more! We were armed with nothing but our experience passes from the tourism board and a great sense of wonder. With the passes, we were able to do all of the activities I listed above. I never knew what a gem Vancouver was but it truly is a city with a sparkle in it's eye. It has everything from haute cuisine to local "artsy" neighborhoods. If I had to sum it up, I would say that it is a combination on San Francisco and Boston - two of my absolute favorite cities here in the states. Of course, where you stay while you're in town is the most important thing. Which is why I partnered with the lovely St. Regis Hotel Vancouver. Their property is a 5 star experience all the way. Enocha and I would have half an hour long chats with the concierge every morning. They graciously helped us plan our day trips and gave us all of the inside scoop on the best local hot spots.  Also, I don't know if you guys are aware but I totally I have this thing with breakfast. It is my FAVORITE meal of the day. The St. Regis not only offers it complimentary with your stay, but they have 3 different types of breakfasts that you can choose from, catering to those with a craving for sweet or savory. They definitely know the way to a girls heart! We had our meals in our room every morning so that we could lay in bed while devouring our bacon and eggs. The room was clean, bright, and oh-so comfortable! All of that to say, if you find yourself in Vancouver, or "Vancity" as the locals like to call it, St. Regis Hotel is a great place to check in for the night. 

I hope you enjoy this travel post! I will be recapping part two of my Canada trip very soon! Have you been to Vancouver? I'd love to hear about some of your experiences! 

Have a great weekend!

  3. I love this dress and plan to purchase. We have similar body type/measurements. Would you be able to let me know about the fit/ whether you purchased a size small or x-small? Xo - Amanda

    1. In the red dress I'm wearing a small, I would recommend and X-small though for a better fit. The striped dress I am wearing a small. It fits pretty snug so that one I would keep the same size. Hope this helps!
