Tips n’ Tricks

Things I’ve learned along the way

Home for the Holiday

Christmas is a time for laughter and joy. It’s a time for eating, drinking and relaxing with family and friends. A time to embrace giving but also secretly relish in receiving and as many couples know, it’s also the time of year to compromise on what side of the family to spend Christmas with.

Style Secret: Clean Out Your Closet

 

A girl can dream.

My closet looks nothing like the ones in the magazines, or the above picture for that matter (which is Whitney Port’s closet if you were wondering).

Personally, I would refer to my closet as poorly designed, cramped and a source of mild frustration but also, one of my favourite places.

I love waking up and deciding what I’m going to wear, but seeing as I don’t have a lot of space, I need to make sure I use all items within.

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”.

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.
