For New Year's I made my monthly trek up to Kitsilano Beach in Vancouver. Home to my boyfriend, Lululemon, Ryan Reynolds, and a thriving beach volleyball community, I'm convinced Kits Beach is the only part of Canada where a California flower like me could survive!
So how does a summer-loving beach girl like me stay warm in Vancouver in the midst of winter? By playing indoor beach volleyball at 6Pack, riding bikes to artsy Granville Island for warm chicken noodle soup, saying hello to dolphins & tropical fish at the Vancouver Aquarium, getting a workout snow tubing at nearby Cypress Mountain, and searching for the best latte in town. And the winner is..... the Vanilla Latte at JJ Bean in Granville Island. It tasted like toasted marshmallows and came with a heart made of foam. The only part of the trip that wasn't warm? The annual Polar Bear Swim on New Year's Day. Brrrrrrrrr!
