Are we hallucinating or Shay Mitchell literally having the best/busiest summer ever? She rocked the cover of Seventeen magazine’s July 2012 issue and met with fans at an exciting signing in New York City. She then jumped out of a plane in an effort to draw attention to human trafficking and help raise funds for the Somaly Mam Foundation. Oh and somehow in between all that she kicked major butt as Emily Fields in the intense Pretty Little Liars Season 3 mid-season finale. (She even stabbed “Nate” in self defense!) Well, after such an adventurous summer a girl definitely deserves a break, and Shay knows the perfect way to unwind.
In her upcoming beauty spread in Self magazine, the Pretty Little Liars actress — who talks about a getaway in which she “pretended to be a Tahitian girl” and put a flower in [her] hair” — shares her secret to rest and relaxation. It all begins with a luscious fragrance. “Exotic scents transport me to vacation mode,” she says. Add in some rays. “I’m from Canada, but I will always choose sun over snow, palm trees over evergreens,” she reveals. And then come the treats. “Hand me a coconut water and I’m officially on vacay,” Shay jokes.
So tell us, lovelies: What’s your favorite way to escape? What’s your favorite indulgence? Dish away in the comments!
