Waking up at the Thompson with Origins


Last week, I had the opportunity to spend the night at the Thompson with a small group of bloggers to experience the glory that is the new GinZing line from Origins. Staycations are key when your schedule leaves little room for relaxation, so I jumped at the mention of lavished dining, cozy movie nights and calm mornings laying under the sun (that is yoga for those of you who may have a different approach to the art). 
The long weekend (a personally implemented holiday, not a statutory holiday in case you were wondering why you found yourself at work at 9am) started on Thursday around 5pm when Angela and I arrived at our beautiful room with the warmest welcome and a bundle of Origins products. We got settled in, sampled the GinZing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer, *LOVED the scent*, and headed down to dinner. Dinner was hosted by Colette's, in the most lovely and intimate setting with five other bloggers; all talented and inspired so you can probably imagine how our dining experience involved a lot more than simply eating. For those of you familiar with Colette's, you know how difficult it is to leave without snapping at least one photo of the decor, the food, the drinks, pre-dinner photos with friends, *cheers* photos with pretty cocktails....you get the picture. On a side note, dining with content creators is great because you need not worry about being judged for taking photos of your food and it's totally socially acceptable to be on your phone 😅

Following dinner, we headed to the lounge to sample cocktails inspired by the GinZing line, and eventually made our way down the theatre for a private screening of Clueless! Such a classic. The night wrapped up pretty late; and the only thing exciting about a lack of sleep & an early start to my morning was waking up with the caffeine infused Energy-Boosting Moisturizer and Refreshing Eye Cream

A calm morning of yoga under the sun, followed by parfaits and smoothies was the perfect way to start my Friday and end the short but sweet staycation. 


I've been wearing nothing but Origins GinZing products since my stay at the Thomspon last week and my skin is loving it. I've completely replaced by make-up routine with the SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer and I'm living for the natural glow!
