Mountain High - and giveaway!

So, sometimes judging from my comments, and well, the feedback of others, I get the impression that I write too much because no one seems to read my posts lol. Not that I blame you - my attention span is quite short myself!

And thus, for brevity's sake I will only say a few words about my recent trip up to Whistler Mountain last weekend (not in any order) followed by lots of pics. Be prepared to scroll!

*Gorgeous weather

*Blue Hair died in a hotel sink

*Leather jacket

*Cage sandals

*Fab hotel

*Chairlift over glacier crevasse = Fear of heights = panic attack

*Conquering fear of heights (sorta)

*Luge track



*Chair lifts in the summer

*Peak to Peak Gondola (above the ground is 436m/1427 feet over Fitzsimmons Creek) YIKES! Panic attack again


*Watching Star Trek movie (again) with a bottle of New Zealand wine (speaking of New Zealand, have you check out my updated NZ posts on my travel blog here?)

*Eating KFC/taco Bell on the train tracks in Squamish

*The new and improved Sea to Sky Highway

*Top of the world


Jeans: Hudson; Tops and Dress: Forever 21; Purse: Mango; Shoes: Dolce Vita

Love the photos - and the blue hair turned out well, it's always fun to do that kind of stuff (temporarily!).

I would LOVE to get in on the contest for your store :-D You have so much awesome stuff on there.

Doreen said...

Love the photos!! You're beautiful!! ;)

Please count me in for your giveaway. I'd be so stoked to win.

Anna said...

It looks like you had an amazing weekend! I am so jealous!

Sher said...

Luge riding is so much fun! And the sled goes better on the cement tracks. Now that they have to replace sections with that hard plastic from Switzerland, those sections make it go slower. Great bear shots BTW :)

And what new stuff? I blogged about your store this week...but you've been gone :)

Marietta said...

I didn't even know you had a store!Congrats for the 100 anyway! :)

GOSH that is high! Wayyy to high for me! Gorgeous pics love! Blue is fun color, but alas I do not have enough balls to die my hair a bright color. Kudos to you.

Okay that seriously looks like the most fun place on earth! The scenery, the chair lifts, the luge and the BEARS!!! How cool! And I love the blue tips. Wish I could do something cool like that.

i love the blue hair!

have you seen the new host of "how do i look?". she had black hair with big blue chunks. at first i thought i was seeing things, but now i realize it's blue. and very awesome. i have dark hair. i think you've inspired me to (temporarily) give myself some blue hair as well.

LN said...

Enjoying the updates!

Anika said...

Gorgeous pictures, darling :)
Also, know what you mean about 'writing too much and short attention spans'...haha.
The Whistler trip sounds like (and looks like) it was a complete blast.

Such pretty pictures, I'm inspired. Love especially the focused sunglasses one. Bless.

Oooh, chance to win a $30 voucher? Love.

But I love reading all you write! You're an excellent writer! Pictures are definitely a nice bonus though.
Thanks for the nice comments. Nice to know some people still read my blog lol. I shouldn't neglect the poor thing... you lived in Kamloops for 2 years? What for?

And I must know. I've been on the hunt and have searched high and low for a motorcycle jacket. Where did you get yours?! It's awesome!

This looks so fun, especially the luge track. I've always wanted to do that. The sights look amazing, too.

Haha, yeah, your posts can definitely be epicly long. I kind of like that, though.
