That’s right, we’re talking about a DREAM trip for two to Hawaii where you will be living the good life at BOTH the Fairmont Kea Lani and the Fairmont Orchid!! Many of you know by now just how much I love both the Fairmont Kea Lani and the Fairmont Orchid. In fact, I love these resorts SO MUCH that we try to sneak a visit in at least once per year. Hawaii is by far one of our top destination getaways as a family.

Both of these resorts offer a unique experience and they’re both equally as stunning in their own ways. Not to mention they have the best drinks and food … ahem … and my FAVOURITE breakfast, the tofu scramble!

I’m also OVER THE MOON to let you know that the amazing team at will be covering the flights to and from Hawaii PLUS island to island travel during this trip. If you’re looking to book a trip in the near future (to escape this chilly Canadian weather!!) offers the best deals on vacation packages and is a one-stop-shop to find the best travel deals such as Vacation Packages to the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii (😉), and MORE!!

If you’re looking for a great gift idea to spoil your loved ones this holiday season, give the gift of travel (I can taste the Mai-Tai’s already!) with’s gift cards! Travel gift cards make a great holiday surprise as the one who gets it can plan whatever trip is best for them, and it’s a little more personal than just cash. There are different amounts available depending on your budget and express shipping – which is great for those last-minute shoppers out there!

  4. i love what you give back to your community especially mama’s for mamas. I am a single parent. My amazing son is 39 . I still remember how I struggled to feed him as he had to be on soy milk , I thankfully had great friends to help but I sure had a lot of tough times and to have a place like mamas for mamas would have been a godsend. You and your team are all angels.

I think you would become his bestie too lol . 😉😉
