24 Hours in Vernon, BC with Buick

Earlier in December, I had the pleasure of flying out to Vernon, BC to test drive Buick’s brand new 2018 Enclave. If you remember awhile back, I joined GMC in Calgary for the Calgary Stampede to test drive some of GMC’s 2017 releases, and I had such a lovely time that I obviously had to say yes when Buick reached out to me for the 2018 Enclave Press Trip. If you’re not familiar with Buick, it’s a North American automobile retailer that falls under the GMC family.

I’m not typically the biggest fan of 24 hour trips since the flights back and forth usually take quite the toll out on me (blame the aging me for not being able to cope with quick-haul trips), but when the itinerary included some driving time in the new Buick Enclave (coupled together with a spa experience), the obvious answer was an emphatic yes!

Shadowed

When it comes to finding success as a content creator, Instagram is definitely a huge contributing component of it. I’m sure that by now that the algorithmic change has affected everyone, and has even caused some of the best creators out there to resort to immoral and non-ethical tactics to grow their following. Everyone knows and understands that the larger the following, the more attractive your account can be. Unfortunately, regardless of how hard we try to break that mold to prove that we’re more than just a number, somehow the game always goes back to that metric. So today I wanted to share with you some of my favourite tools that I always use when it comes to ensuring that I’m maximizing my presence on Instagram. Hopefully this will help out at least one of you out there that are considering beginning your Instagram journey, or are looking for a change to your regular method of marketing yourself on the platform!

I fully plan on getting Kobe some delicious Christmas-themed snacks this year alongside a little teepee to replace his crate. What are your favourite places to get presents for your pooch?

An #MDVPHoliday17 - Dine & Unwind

It’s been a crazy year to say the least. At least it’s that time of the year when I can finally relax a little bit with my crew. Every year close to the holidays, Peter, Mel, Dave and I take some time off and spend a weekend together exploring the city. We go out for a fun dinner, and just essentially appreciate our time together as a group – #MDVPHoliday. Last year we had a crazy fun weekend and this year’s #MDVPHoliday17 was just the same to say the least.
