Tropical or winter vacay... which is your fave? 🏝❄️ To be honest I enjoy both - love hanging out on a beach and in the ocean but equally, I looove getting bundled up and cosy and it’s always so magical when it snows! .

Can’t get through a day of Christmas shopping without a tea break. It’s hard work! ☕️ .
.
We’ve lived in Yaletown for almost 4 years (3 different apartments, all within a 3 block radius!) so it’s safe to say I love the area! There’s so many nice cafes, restaurants, fitness studios and shops and it’s a great spot for holiday shopping and dining 💫 
I finally visited @chaleteamerchant last week and it is the cutest place. Their Mint Majik blue tea is amazing (as is their Matcha) and the space is beautiful, it’s definitely a great spot if you’re a tea lover. 
Have you guys been there yet? . .

Dear Santa... All I want for Christmas is a Jeep and a puppy. I’ve been a good girl this year so if you could fit those two small pressies in your sleigh that would be just wonderful 🤭 Thaaaaaanks!! What are you asking from Santa this year? 🎅🏼 .

Every year I say i’m not gonna go mad with Christmas shopping, but then every year I end up with huge big bags of shopping + I go a bit crazy. Anyone else do the same?! 🙈 I just like buying gifts!! .
.
I kickstarted my holiday shopping this week and found so many great gifts around Yaletown (and maybe 1 or 2 for me too!) I might be biased as it’s my neighbourhood, but there are so many great local shops and dining spots, you’ve got everything you need in one place. .
.
 I visited @finefindsboutique, @thecrossdesign and @shoephix and picked up some great goodies, many under $50. Check out my IG Stories to see what I got + for some gift ideas!

Oooooh it’s chilly outside ⛄️ We flew out to Ontario to stay at the @woodscanada Woods Parka Lodge this past weekend and it was so beautiful! Woods have built the yurt specially to celebrate the new Alverstone Expedition Parka, and the really cool thing is that the yurt has been built using the same materials as the jacket to showcase just how warm it is.

The decor was absolutely stunning and it was such a cosy stay. Plus, it was made even more magical by the blanket of snow that we woke up to in the morning. Talk about the perfect wintery adventure ❄️ #WoodsParkaLodge #WoodsExplorer #ChekSquad

So Dad, about that rule of no swimming with sharks.... 😆

This was the coolest experience - swimming with both pigs + nurse sharks in one day was a dream come true 🦈 🐷 
This was shot on my iPhone X from @telus - can you believe it? We were told we weren’t able to use our professional camera at the Cay but fortunately the camera on the X is pretty amazing so we were still able to grab some cool shots. ————————————————————————- A few tips for shooting pics with your smartphone... 1) Make sure the camera lens is clean! It gets grubby so easily + a smudgy lens will ruin the shot. ✧

2) Editing makes the world of difference. I edit my pics in Lightroom, I prefer the desktop version but there’s also a free mobile app which is brilliant. Snapseed is great too as a more basic editor, as is VSCO for filters. Editing allows you to clean up the image and really make it pop :) See my IG Stories for the original shot pre-editing! ✧
.

3) Lighting will make or break your shot. Shoot in natural light where possible, my fave time of day for shooting is sunrise and sunset when the light is the softest. You can capture some really beautiful shots using Portrait mode too! ✧

What are your best tips for shooting with your phone?

First winter adventure of the season ❅

Bundled up in the beautiful new @woodscanada Alverstone Expedition Parka from @sportchek. 
Going from the tropical Bahamas to snowy Ontario was a biiiiit of a shock to the system so this jacket was very much needed!! 🥶 
Anyone got any exciting snowy trips coming up?? .

Exciting announcement!!! The @the.mclachlans and I are hitting up SAYULITAAAAA, Mexico in February!! We can’t wait to splash around in the sun and sand all day with our babes, and replace the cameras in our hands with margaritas and tacos. BUTTTTT having the love and passion for our job that we do.. we are of course dying to find a few couples who are RAD and down to catch a sunrise or sunset with us - having us capture your love under that gorgeous Mexico sun. If you or someone you know will be in the area the last few days of January or the first week of February - email us and let’s get in touch!! Ps this will be my first time flying with Atticus - he is 2, any advice?? 😅

✧ In a world where you can be anything, be kind. Kindness costs nothing, after all ✧

It’s the @wemovement #WeDay today in Vancouver and although I can’t be there to support, I wanted to still share a bit about it as it’s such an amazing day to empower young people to create positive change. .
.
One very prominent topic is Cyberbullying, which sadly so many young people experience nowadays especially on social media. It’s on us to empower young people to speak out against cyber bullying, and remind those who are experiencing it that they don’t have to put up with it. Bullying in any form is never ok and no one has the right to bring you down. .
.

@Telus have created a TELUS Wise Digital Pledge and for every pledge taken they’ll donate $1 to support #EndBullying programs across Canada so we can rise above + put an end to Cyberbullying. It’s so quick + easy to do, the link is in my bio if you wanna take the pledge + it’s a great way to support 💫 . [Ad] #TeamTELUS .

✧ “And while there are countless ways that we rip ourselves off, there’s one way in particular that is, without a doubt, the most rampant and the most devastating of all: we invest everything we’ve got in believing that we’re not good enough.” ✧ .
.
Anyone else really resonate with this? 
I recently wrote a very honest blog post - it’s all about how I lost confidence in myself and my work last month, but also how I managed to shift my thinking,  get back to my positive self + get myself out of my funk. 
Turns out this happens to the vast majority of us at some point - so if you’re feeling a similar way, hopefully you find it useful and it’ll help you to get back on your game. You are definitely not alone ✧

“Motion is better than stasis. When you take action, you learn, you build skills, you get freer. When you stay still because you’re afraid to make a move, your self-worth wanes, your doubts fester and breed more doubts, your courage atrophies. Suit up and head out.” ~Danielle LaPorte

It’s almost the weekend. So suit up, head out and have fun!

Oh BC, you never fail to amaze me 💫 
4 years ago exactly, we left England to go travel around Southeast Asia. At the time it felt like a very temporary decision - we were gonna explore Asia, spend 1 year in Canada then go back home.

What was supposed to be temporary actually ended up being permanent and it’s amazing how many opportunities and changes have occurred because of that decision to get out of our comfort zone + travel. .
.
What we often forget is that every single decision we make diverts us on a different path. No matter how big or small. It inevitably opens a new door and invites a new outcome - sometimes it’s a good thing and sometimes it isn’t - but the smallest decision can have a huge impact later down the line. So especially during those times when you feel like your efforts aren’t getting you anywhere + things aren’t moving, remember that those small choices and decisions may one day make a world of difference. .
.

Of course, decisions always involve sacrifice too - ours meant we had to leave our amazing friends + family and that was and still is really tough. But if you want it enough you find a way to make it work. 
I’m so grateful for everything the last 4 years has brought - that decision led to us moving to Vancouver, me starting my blog, living our absolute dream life + it resulted in this amazing online community. Thanks to all you people who continue to support everything that @mchutch5 and I do. You’re all amazing ❤️ .

The dreamiest little breakfast spot 🌴 This was on the patio right outside our villa, it was so pretty and peaceful! Definitely wish I was here this morning! 
Anyone got Ubud on their travel list?! .

As much as I love travelling to far away places, British Columbia is so so beautiful in itself. 
Where else can you live in the world where you have mountains, ocean, city, wilderness, glacier lakes and the most incredibly vast views and landscapes right on your doorstep?↟ ↟ ↟

That’s part of the reason why we decided to stay here and get Permanent Residency... there’s so much to see + do and we just fell in love with the West Coast ❤️ .
.
Did anyone else also visit Vancouver then fall in love and end up staying/moving here?!? 😅 .

“And I realize that no matter where I am, whether in a little room full of thought, or in this endless universe of stars and mountains, it’s all in my mind.” ✧ ✧

If i’m totally honest with you, i’ve been feeling a bit stuck in my head recently. I’ve actually got ideas + inspiration coming out of my ears, which is great, but there’s been a lot of moments when i’ve thought, “My best just isn’t good enough.” 🤷🏽‍♀️ .
.
One of my biggest strengths is that I always strive for more. I learn what I don’t know and master what I do. I’ll do whatever I can to make shit happen. 
But equally, that’s one of my weaknesses, because it means that i’m extra EXTRA hard on myself. My expectations and standards (of myself) are so high, more and more it seems these days, and sometimes my inner critic really just takes over to the point where it just makes me a bit sad.

I’m so fortunate to have the best mentor/soundboard/friend/hubs in @mchutch5 and he always manages to crush that inner critic and get me out of my head. 
@soulcycle is also my saviour - it’s not just a workout, but almost like therapy in many ways and I find it always gives me that extra bit of confidence and self-love when I need it. The feeling of empowerment and strength it provides is really wonderful. .
.

I’m slowly learning to be less harsh on myself and understand that these expectations and standards are just in my mind. My best actually IS good enough. Ultimately our mind is our biggest limitation but it’s also our biggest power - so we gotta not let it stop us from going after we want 💫 
Just wanted to be super honest + real with you guys - Does anyone else ever feel this way? If you do, you’re definitely not alone! What do you find helps you to get outta your head?

Resting beach face 🌊 
PS. I look calm but about 5 seconds after we shot this I had to bolt it up the beach as the waves were insane and would quite literally sweep you off your feet. Anything for a nice pic hey😆
