Keep it stylish

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”.

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.
