I don't know about you but there are sooo many things I'm obsessing over lately! As we transition into the late summer months, these pieces will work as amazing staples for the upcoming changing seasons!!!
WOW...was that a lot of back and forth last night or WHAT?! I honestly had no idea who would pick who by the end of this episode!!! Michelle K??? How could you possibly make someone want to jump off a balcony and injure himself? I feel like that could have been SO much worse…thank God he’s ok!!!!!
I really didn’t think that Lacy was into Marcus based on last week….she made it seem like she was CRAZY about Robert last episode! Because of that…I was pretty certain that Robert would be going home….but HE STAYED!
Which brings me to Dylan! I kind of understand where he was coming from…he arrived and was immediately latched onto Elise because she was obsessed with him, and he never had a chance to get to know anyone else or explore other connections. When he finally voiced his opinion, Elise took it WAAAY to far with a steamy ocean make out with Chris. To be honest, I think Dylan was probably relieved that she did that because it gave him the FREE pass and allowed him to see what else was out there!! Elise's speech was just too much! The reactions of everyone were HILARIOUS to watch! Do you think Sara wanted to stay true to Elise, and that’s why she didn’t give Dylan the rose??? I totally thought she would give it to him!
Marquel telling Michelle that he would change things about her…like her love of drinking, was a COMPLETE turn off. You should never say that there are things you would change or prefer to be different about anyone! It’s just rude! However, he is sweet and darling, so hopefully it will all work out!
I’m so excited to see who else arrives! Sayonara Ben and Dylan!!!!!!
HAPPY MONDAY my loves!!!!! The sunshine gods have still been so wonderul to us on the West Coast...and this cheery #JHforPriv Buttercup tank is my FAV piece to wear on these hot summer days (and ps...it comes in black too!)

I haven't shared a recap of any Love it Or List it Vancouver episodes in a while....so here you go!!! AMERICA, how are you liking the new season so far?! Today I'm taking you into Susan and Harvey's home, and oh my, did I love this transformation! We were able to turn this house into a space where this growing family had room to entertain, relax and enjoy!

If you know me, you know I ADORE the sun, and I basically LIVE in it when I'm home in Kelowna! Every time I step into the beautiful Project Skin MD South Granville location, I immediately feel rejuvinated and in good hands!!! I recently paid a visit to their Sun Event to learn more about sun damage and what I could do to reverse some of the damage the sun has done to my skin.
I'm sure you already know that skin cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers in Canada. I know I'm guilty for feeling invincible to the sun, but I can't stress how IMPORTANT it is to take care of your skin, and protect the ONLY skin you will ever have!!! Sunblocks and sunscreens are soooo important, and you should be wearing an SPF on your face every day, to protect from every day sun exposure.
In the summer, dullness and pigmentation are the most common skin complaints. For dullness, you may want to invest in a deep cleaning electronic brush to use multiple times a week, just to ensure your skin is extra clean before moisturizing!
For pigmentation, which is a direct result of skin damage, there are options to reverse the damage done!!! To help correct and prevent early signs of sun damage aging, Project Skin MD recommends either IPL Photorejuvination or Clear + Brilliant® Permea treatments. For more significant sun damage and signs of aging, treating your skin to a Fraxel® re:store DUAL treatment is best. This procedure got its start here in Vancouver, and it rids of the damaged cells to reveal more even, youthful and healthy skin! Pretty amazing if you ask me!!!!
To help my lovely readers with their skin damage and pigmentation, I have teamed up with Project Skin MD to give away a Pigment Balancing Masque, valued at $180, which will help control complicated pigmentation!! Complete the steps below to enter! Contest restricted to residents of the Lower Mainland. Take care of that skin, ladies!!!!!!!
