INSPIRE: Five Fun Finds of the Month

We enjoy making treats, but we also enjoy finding them on the internet. With so many hilarious, thought-provoking and entertaining websites, we sometimes miss the coolest ones. Here’s a list of our five fave finds of the month. We think you’ll enjoy them!

#1 Famous Magazine First Covers

Oh, how times have changed! Although we’re partial to our glossies, we adore the vintage fashion drawings that used to grace the cover.

#2 Mealtime Myths

Indulge in your morning coffee worry-free! It isn’t as bad as they say. Phew.

#3 Hot Spot Destination

Want to get away in the New Year? Bali is definitely an option! We promise you’ll love it. Could you bring us, too?

#4 Cute Homes

We’ve never seen a home so adorable! This home is in Portugal and costs about the same as a family car. When can we move in?

#5 Chocolate Treats

We love chocolate so much that we’ve found a list of 35 ways to satisfy our chocolate cravings. We always prefer BeaverTails though!

EXPLORE: Whistler

Happy December! Jack Frost is nipping away across Canada, and we couldn't be happier because colder weather means winter sports! Whistler got a lot of buzz for the last Olympics, and it's still a top spot in Canada for a winter wonderland getaway. Aside from hitting the world-class slopes and eating piping-hot BeaverTails pastries there are some other great activities that you won't want to miss.

Take an incredible 4.4-kilometer gondola ride that zips you from Whistler mountain across to Blackcomb. One for the record books, it boasts the longest unsupported span (3.024 kms), the highest lifts of its kind (436 metres) and is the longest continuous lift system in the world.

Surrounded by a spruce and cedar forest this outdoor spa is the epitome of relaxation. Relax in hot pools, eucalyptus steam rooms and Finnish saunas, then refresh yourself in crisp waterfalls, showers and baths. All the while breathing in the fresh country air. Top it off with a massage and you're likely to float all the way home.

Exercise your mind and learn about the two different BC First Nations cultures whose traditional land overlaps in Whistler. See incredible handiwork including woven goods and totem poles, and pick up some Native art in the gift shop.
