Shay Mitchell is having an Eat, Pray, Love moment. As her fellow Canadians tough out a harsh winter, the 27-year-old actress took a well-deserved holiday and jetted off to Bali for a glamorous, sun-soaked vacation with friends.
Last week, the Pretty Little Liars star embarked on a 30-hour journey to the faraway Indonesian island, sharing photos from her glamorous voyage – complete with champagne and Louis Vuitton travel goods – on Instagram along the way.
The brunette beauty has been embracing a boho-chic aesthetic for her exotic retreat, rocking paisley skirts, colourful ikat prints, a slew of sexy bathing suits and several pairs of designer sunglasses.
The Mississauga, Ont. native also went sightseeing during her trip and was especially inspired by a visit to the Pura Luhur Uluwatu Temple. She shared a photo from atop the ancient Hindu monument – which is located on a cliff and features sweeping ocean views – along with the following quote from Elizabeth Gilbert’s book, Eat, Pray Love:
“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it.”
In another snap, the actress can be seen mingling with local children. “The people more than anything have made this trip one of the best,” she wrote.
In fact, Shay has been having so much fun, that she recently decided to extend her vacation by two more days.
It’s been an incredible year for the Canadian starlet who, aside from amassing millions of Instagram followers and curating her own lifestyle blog, Amore & Vita, launched her own capsule collection of graphic tank tops and tees with eLUXE in December.
