My Stay At The Westin

@christianconfidential

Hi guys, I’m back on the blog today to share a cool travel post and contest that I’ve partnered on with Marriott International in celebration of Canada’s big 150! Marriott International decided to team up with a few canadian bloggers and have them visit various cities across the country to explore and take in some of Canada’s most known and hidden gems. For me, coincidentally, I was asked to visit Ottawa, which is actually my hometown so I was more than happy to participate. I’ll be sharing more about my favourite places to visit and things to do in a later post but for now I’ll be giving you guys a glimpse into my stay at The Westin (a hotel apart of the Marriott International family), and giving you guys the details on how you can potentially stay here as well by entering Marriott’s Epic Canada Adventure Sweepstake!

Whenever I’m looking for a hotel to stay at in a new city, I always pay close attention to the location. Is it central, is it easy to get to, is it safe, are there good restaurants close by etc.. If you’re like me, then the Westin is perfect for you. It’s centrally located, easy to catch a cab, tons of tourist attractions nearby and has good restaurants (The Shore Club is located inside the hotel) and shopping literally steps away (Nordstrom anyone?!).

When designing my experience at the Westin, I wanted to make sure that I got to experience the best that they had to offer. I ended up staying in a beautiful Junior Suite that had floor to ceiling windows aka a lot of natural light and the perfect view of the Parliament. The Westin hotel is all about making sure their guests move, feel, work and play well. Whether you’re looking for healthy food options, spa services, dinner recommendations (the concierge staff was so helpful), a proper gym (they have two and a pool), or comfortable meeting space, the Westin has it all covered! Additional perks of staying at this hotel, is that they have a run club that guests are encouraged to participate in and car service (sponsored by Cadillac) that you can have access to when booking certain suites.

Now, let’s talk about this contest – Marriott’s Epic Canada Adventure Sweepstakes! The contest launches today (June, 22nd) and will be open for four weeks. All you have to do to enter is visit Marriott Canada or SPG Canada. There will be a total of 5 contest winners from Canada and the United States, 3 of which will win ‘epic’ adventures at Marriott Canada locations and 2 will win ‘epic’ adventures at Starwood Canada locations. What’s included in these ‘epic’ adventures?  Flight and accommodations for the contest winner and a guest, $1000.00 CAD spending money and a complimentary experience/activity.

I’ll be crossing my fingers for you guys, good luck!

Hi guys, I hope that your week has been off to a great start! I’m back with a new style post that I’ve teamed up on with Canada Goose to showcase one of my favorite items from their SS16 Collection. Their Brookvale jacket totally speaks to my lifestyle –  it keeps me warm,  it’s super light & very versatile (aka, it’s available in black)!  It’s the perfect jacket to throw on if you’re heading to the gym, running errands downtown or grabbing lunch with a close friend.

Christian Confidential x Forever 21Christian Confidential x Forever 21It’s beginning to look and feel a lot like fall in Canada, which means it’s time to bundle up and accessorize to stay warm while looking your best. I got the chance to be a little more creative with this style post by collaborating with my Forever 21 family on a little video called ‘Lifestyle Meets Fashion’. (click here to see the video)  In this video, I incorporated some of my fall fashion essentials such as knitted cardigans, black denim, chelsea boots & a few accessories. This is the perfect outfit if you’re on the go – allowing you to stay warm, comfortable and stylish at the same time!

Another Fashion Week has come and gone in Toronto and If you work in the Canadian fashion industry , last week was probably one of the busiest times of the year for you.  I know for myself it was jammed packed with attending shows, fittings, castings, social gatherings, after parties and everything else in between. I had a few different looks that I put together for the week but I wanted to showcase this all black get up that I put together, it was definitely the highlight of them all for me. I’m not the biggest enthusiast for turtlenecks but I decided to put it into play with a black blazer, marled knit joggers and my suede chelsea boots. I think in the end, the look came together really nicely – giving off a very dapper look while providing comfort all at the same time. The Turtle Neck | Style PostThe Turtle Neck | Style PostThe Turtle Neck | Style PostWhat I’m Wearing
