Cherry blossoms are blooming and the days are getting longer, making it the perfect time to slow down and soak up the sun! The Art Gallery Café is a local favourite, tucked away in the heart of downtown. It’s a perfect place to sit and enjoy a coffee, lunch or even a glass of bubbly.  My favourite part? They don’t offer Wi-Fi, encouraging people to connect with each other and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

A full day of shopping can definitely leave your locks looking a bit dishevelled—I know my hair is a static mess after pulling clothing on and off! So I couldn’t be more excited for the arrival of Blo Blow Dry Bar in Topshop on Granville. Choose your look from their hair menu: my personal favourite is Pillow Talk (sultry and tousled), but Red Carpet is the perfect pick-me-up before a night out.

I love a cup of joe as much as the next girl, but once I’ve hit my daily espresso limit, I head to Small Victory Café in Yaletown, which now carries cold pressed juices by Nectar Juicery. I love the energy boost I get from the Daily Greens juice blend.

You can’t miss the new 3,000-square-foot Wilfred boutique on Robson Street. The space is whimsical and elegant, a perfect fit for the vintage-inspired, timeless designs inside. My Wilfred must-have: the Daria leggings. They’re super comfortable, perfect with flats or heels and the best for travel, whether you’re on a plane or just on the go.
