Just before Christmas, my dear friends Alicia + Alex took me up to Whistler to celebrate my engagement (they’re the best!) We were treated to an amazing night at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler (if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen my stories of the two bedroom suite they hooked us up with!) After some celebratory champagne, we got dressed up and went for dinner at Basalt. We had planned to go out and potentially go dancing, but ended up watching Gilmore Girls in bed (isn’t that better?).

The next morning after brunch (and a first snow!), we headed up to the Scandinave Spa. I had literally been dreaming about it since moving to Toronto and was so excited. We were one of the last ones to get in and spent the morning soaking, relaxing, and napping.

Just thinking about it makes me want to do it again. Have you guys ever been to Whistler? Let me know in the comments.

PS Speaking of getaways, A and I are headed to Palm Springs today! I’m so excited for some sun and relaxation – we have both been working like crazy and were sick last week (ugh). I also have a vacation makeup tutorial coming up on Wednesday… stay tuned!

      Thanks love! I bought an XS. Because it’s a bias cut, it is quite slinky, just so you know! But I absolutely love the dress 🙂

    Hi! What time did you get to the Scandinave Spa? I’ve heard you need to go relatively early in order to get in

      We didn’t end up getting there until 1030-11am, and it was a Saturday morning, so probably the busiest time to go. I would recommend 10am if you can swing it? Otherwise, if you get a massage or something, you get unlimited access to the baths all day 🙂 Enjoy!

    Hi jill! I love your clothes! Question; do you get everything or almost everything tailored/hemmed? Which clothing items do you think usually need tailoring the most? I’m always skeptical of buying clothing online especially pants and dresses, because im so short and it so annoying to tailor everything to my size!

      Hi Maggie, thank you so much! I actually don’t tailor that many of my clothes, although I do believe that hemming/tailoring something can really make an outfit. I think that pants/jeans are the thing that need tailoring most – if they’re cropped, they should end at the smallest part of your ankle. It’s super slimming. Online shoppping can be hard, but just make sure that you can return the item when you buy it – I also sometimes buy a few sizes and then just send back whatever doesn’t fit.

      I hope that’s helpful and let me know if you have any other questions!

      xx Jill
