Style Secret: Aveda Institute Vancouver

 

I received the best colour and cut of my life when I was in Lisbon, Portugal. Despite the language barrier, we were able to communicate and I received exactly what I asked for.

It made me realize that my hairdresser at home maybe wasn’t all I thought she was. Maybe I had become complacent going to her for so long that I never even realized how unsatisfied I was until I was forced to try someone new and it made me remove my rose coloured glasses.

Style Secret: Shop at Winners

Vancouver is a great place to live if you like to shop.

There are amazing boutiques, fabulous department stores, and one of the most expensive retail shopping strips in Canada (Robson Street) – all within a few blocks of each other.

With so much selection throughout the city, I often find myself frequenting the same stores out of pure habit, one of them being WINNERS.

When I mention I regularly shop at WINNERS, people often respond with, “I can never find anything there,” or, “How do you do it? It’s so unorganized”.

Style Secret: Makeup Splurge vs. Save

I have a few guilty pleasures I like to indulge in.

Chocolate, red wine, trashy television, ’90s playlists and makeup. Oh boy, do I ever like my makeup.

Like many people in this day and age, I am a contributor to the every growing beauty market. A market so large that it is estimated to reach $265 billion in 2017.

When Your Resume Reads “Server”

I’ve been back in Vancouver for about a month, and after enjoying the last few weeks of summer, the time has come…

It’s time to get a job.

Finding a full-time job is essentially having a full-time job. From the job searches to the resume re-dos, the thought put into cover letters, and the added bonus of social media profiles. Finding a job is a lot of work, especially when you are determined to get the job you want.

Style Secret: Barefoot Blonde

Recently, I’ve received many compliments on this hairstyle but sadly, I can’t take credit for it. Well, I can take credit for doing it, but not for creating it.

I, like so many hairstyle-inept individuals, have learned how to do our hair under the guidance of Amber Fillerup Clark aka the Barefoot Blonde. Amber is a former hairstylist turned full-time blogger and my go-to-guru for everything hair.
