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. 🎁🎁

Welcome to DAY 12 of our giveaways!! Can you believe this is our LAST day left??? JK. We have TWO bonus days coming at you because I just can’t help but to spoil you all rotten!!! And we have something super special in store for you today….. 

Today we’re gifting a relaxing STAYCATION IN THE CITY. Rejoice!!! I teamed up with THREE incredible brands for this one: 1) Spa Utopia is providing a package valued at approximately $719.00 CAD, 2) Comfort Zone has added in their MY PRIVATE SPA COLLECTION valued at approximately $575.00 CAD and 3) the Granville Island Hotel is providing a TWO-night stay at one of their King Waterfront view rooms valued at approximately $900.00 CAD!!

I wanted to make this a relaxing weekend staycation in the city for you and your love with everything you need to rest and relax…especially after the two years we have had.. Am I right? 

Here’s a cute story and why today is so special… Gary and I had our FIRST date at one of Vancouver’s most unique hotels, Granville Island Hotel… no NO we didn’t stay there, who do you think I am??? LOL. But it was actually me who suggested we go for dinner there after we grabbed drinks at a couple of hot spots. And I’m SO glad we did, we had an absolutely amazing time sitting outside on their GORGEOUS patio, getting to know each other in one of the most magical, secret gems in the city!! It’s a beautiful boutique hotel nestled in Granville Island and only STEPS away from the Public Market, local artists and shops, the seawally, and so much more!!! So I couldn’t think of a better partner to kick off our 12 days with than by giving YOU the chance to stay here with your love! It brings me right back to where it all began. I guess you can say I’m a bit of a hopeless romantic. 

The lovely Spa Utopia’s Retreat Package is a 3 ½ hour relaxation DREAM which includes their Signature Massage, “Designed for U” Luxury Facial, and a Luxury Manicure with Paraffin Treatment. PLUS an additional 70-minute Tranquility Wrap. Spa Utopia is LITERALLY a utopia, haha, they’re super eco-friendly and have such a wide range of services. They actually have a whole range of massages for Women’s Health & Wellness!!! This includes therapists who will develop a treatment to help your body to improve strength, flexibility and stability to prepare for pregnancy, and then help your body to adapt all the way through the third trimester and even postpartum. They also offer massages for healthy breast care and to decrease pain and tenderness. Talk about spoiled!!!! 

Comfort Zone’s MY PRIVATE SPA COLLECTION is a LUXURIOUS face and body kit that includes everything you need for a thorough at-home spa experience, including serums and creams and all the hydration your skin could need. Comfort Zone has quickly become my favourite skincare brand for SO many reasons!! I love the benefits, the smell (how natural it smells but so fresh at the same time with no yucky chemical fragrances) and how hydrating some of their products are!!! You really feel like you are nourishing your skin. Such a luxurious package to enjoy on your weekend away.
