Natalie Langston


Ho ho ho and a Merry Holiday Season to you all!! This is Santa Natalie here 🤶 reporting to you LIVE from the shipping desk, and do you know what that means? It’s time for my 🎄 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAYS!!!! 🎄 My little elves and I have been working around. the. clock. to make our SIXTH year in a row bigger and more amazing than ever. I promise, it’s going to blow your socks off. We have GREAT prizes to share, all from brands that I’m so excited to be working with (33 in total!!!) and amounting in total to over  $18,000 CAD in value! Eeeeeeeeee!!! So keep an eye on my blog since that’s where I’ll be posting details about the prizes and how to get your hands on them. We’ve REALLY outdone ourselves this time. Oh, and did I mention that we have not one but two (yes, TWO) bonus days???? That’s FOURTEEN DAYS of giveaways happening on my BRAND NEW SITE. I am SO excited to finally be sharing this with all of you after months and months of planning, plotting, calculating, swatching, and keeping it alllllll under wraps 😉 Building a new site has been a huge priority for me so that we have a place to hang out that really feels like home, and you’ve all been such a great support over this past year that I wanted to give you the BIGGEST and WARMEST thank you I possibly could! This is going to be SUCH an amazing year!! I will see you RIGHT HERE from now until December 14th with a new giveaway EACH. DAY. 🎁🎁

So, without any further ado… (drumroll please) we’re kicking off the SIXTH annual 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways with a TWO NIGHT luxuuuuurious getaway to Victoria. But not just any place…. We’re sending you to the Oak Bay Beach Hotel… *swoon*. This hotel is recognized by Condé Nast (hello, Vogue) as not only the #1 Top Hotel in Canada but also the #19 Top Hotel in the WORLD. Oak Bay Beach Hotel has generously gifted a TWO night stay plus a $100 dining credit, to a value of $1,300 in total.* What a way to start us off!!!

The Oak Bay Beach Hotel is nestled on the shores of Victoria, overlooking the Salish Sea and the breathtaking snow-capped Mount Baker in the distance. Minutes away is the Oak Bay Village, where you can find quaint boutique shops, cafes and galleries. The hotel itself is known for its award-winning Boathouse Spa, heated seaside mineral pools, FARO Handcrafted Pizza (drool), and other world-class services. Not to mention, the 100-room hotel features complimentary self-parking, Nespresso Coffee, and customized K’Pure hand sanitizer in the room and huge spa-inspired bathrooms. Okay okay I’m sold, LOL! Sign me UP. (Okay but for real… don’t be surprised if you spot me living my best life in one of those seaside mineral pools when you visit 🤪.)

I love that the hotel is set apart from all the hustle and bustle so you can really have a sense of zen, yet is minutes away from Oak Bay Village for when you want to do some shopping, check out some art, or grab a coffee and people watch. I’ve been wanting to stay here for a while now, it looks SO beautiful and SO luxurious. Victoria is one of Gary’s favourite places this time of year and it has quickly become mine too. There is something that’s truly so special about this town, ESPECIALLY when it’s all decked out for the holidays. It really makes the magic of Christmas feel so alive. It’s like a Hallmark movie come to life 🎄

But actually, we (Gary, myself AND the boys) will be staying here in the new year!!! Around Valentine’s Day. And let me tell you… I’m basically counting down the days. I’m not sure if I’m more looking forward to visiting their award-winning Boathouse Spa and or the heated seaside mineral pools, but I guess I don’t really have to choose, do I? LOL. Gary’s going to be all. over. their FARO Handcrafted Pizza. (I love that this hotel answered the age-old question, What’s more relaxing: a spa or a pizza? With the answer: BOTH 💕)

I also love that their guestrooms and suites offer complimentary parking, which can totally add up over your stay!!! It’s so hard to come by these days, and sometimes parking further away while trying to save a buck just ends up eating into your precious time to relax! I also LOVE Nespresso Coffee and that they have a recycling program. And for the customized k’Pure hand sanitizer…. k’Pure is my FAVE (and miiiight actually be a hint for one of the upcoming giveaways 😉). Oak Bay Beach Hotel really thinks through all of those little details and knowing so helps to put my mind at ease so we can TRULY enjoy and experience the best of the Pacific Northwest. 

Also, I want to give them a shoutout for offering a special BC Residents Rate. One of my biggest takeaways from this past year is how important a sense of community is, and supporting one another whenever we can is a huge part of that. What a great way to encourage (safe) tourism within the province and help BC Residents to treat themselves after such a tumultuous year!! This kind of thing really warms my heart.

With beautiful guestrooms and an even more beautiful view, I am so honoured to be sending 1 lucky prizewinner (plus their guest) to this OUTSTANDING and peaceful destination. The Oak Bay Beach Hotel will be such a treat and are looking very forward to having YOU visit.
