Yep, you read that title correctly – I just turned 35, and two months before that, I had my first proper facial at the Wedgewood Hotel & Spa (845 Hornby Street, Vancouver). I was told by my esthetician, Anny, that, technically, having had microdermabrasion and doing my regular facemasks can be considered a facial, but this was a proper facial and I was going to love it. And I did!
We leave for the UK in less than a month, and I officially have Christmas and travel on the brain. Aside from some travel toiletries, I’m all set with what I need for the our trip. (I’m also done my Christmas shopping – woot!) But Black Friday and Cyber Monday have got me thinking about what I or any of my travel friends would feel fortunate to see under the tree or in our stockings. So here’s a little gift guide – clicking on any of the images will bring you to their respective shops.
The temperature has officially gone from crisp to chilly in Victoria and I am here for it. It’s time to get cozy! I’ve loved unpacking and feeling hygge in all of my cozy sweaters and scarves, and my feet are such happy campers in my slippers.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are upon us. Are you ready? Have you been exploring the pre-sales? Love it or hate it this retail weekend is a fantastic opportunity to Christmas shop in a #GetThrifty manner; particularly online.
This year, I’ve decided to a significant portion of my shopping from the comfort of my own home or on my lunch break. I briefly touched on online shopping in my Holiday Season Survival Guide last year, but wanted to expand on it a bit (and share some ideas and deals!). It’s a philosophy that ingrains itself more firmly for me every year – convenience, no people mowing you over to get that last pair of shoes, and it takes a fraction of the time.
