Whistler is an amazing place. I've just returned from my first day of skiing, where I'm proud to say I made it off the nursery slope and onto some proper runs (due to a fantastic ski coach called Dave and a total lack of regard for my own survival).

Bears Spotted: 0 (apparently they're in hibernation)
Face Plants: 1
Brushes With Death: 0

Satirically, I'm a total disgrace. I've managed to squeeze myself into my old ski clothes that hadn't left the attic since I was fifteen. If I were to do one of those "Letter to my Fifteen Year Old Self" things, I would probably just leave it at "Seriously, end the shopping habit at Roxy. It's really not doing you any favours. And it now makes the twenty two year old me look like a total prat on the slopes."

Check it:

However, I can't blame the whole ensemble on my fifteen year old shopping choices. The t shirt is from Daydreamer LA (I'll show it to you again soon - I promise it looks adorable when not styled with hiking thermals), and I bought the hat today. I love this hat for two reasons:
  1. It is high-vis, and will therefore be really helpful when Search and Rescue are looking for me in ravines, and
  2. It makes me look like Big Bird.
Maybe this evening I'll put on something more glamourous to head into town. Or, I may watch chick flicks and gorge myself on room service. I'll keep you informed. 

Have you ever visited Whistler? If so, I'd love some recommendations of must-visit places?


P.S. Several of your lovely comments on my last post (seriously, thank you, you're all total dolls) complimented my nail varnish. In case anyone's interested, it's Rimmel Lycra Pro in 420 Aqua Cool, and the whole range is currently 2 for £5.99 at Superdrug. Get involved, ladies. 


  1. You have such a lovely blog! I love your little header, it's adorable. Lovely post! :)

  2. Whistler is my favourite place in the world! I am so jealous have a fantastic time :-) xo

  3. Ooh, have a nice time!

    PS - I know this is a bit late, but I've just been reading all of your holiday posts and they're all really cool and amazing, so I need to comment on them in consecutive order, and we'll all just pretend I commented on them when I was supposed to!


All love notes are gratefully received. If you have a burning question, though, it would be better to hit me up with an email.
