On The Eve

On The Eve

Ohhh, I love New Year’s Eve. A sparkly dress, a vintage beaded bag, and a bottle of champagne. What’s not to love? New Year’s is a glorious affair, even if you stay at home and watch the boats go by.   With a menu that’s […]

Holiday Look: Glitter

Holiday Look: Glitter

As I was pondering sparkling eye offerings in The Beauty Boutique for the holidays, the lovely SA expertly guided me across the aisle to the Stila counter and pointed out the Glitter & Glow Magnificent Metals on display. Oh, glitter for grown-ups. There were 8 brilliant shades […]

Holiday To Do

Holiday To Do

It’s Christmas Day! We even got a white Christmas!!! It was what we would call a skiff of snow in Saskatchewan, but it was BC snow nonetheless. I fear it will likely be gone soon  as the sun is now shining. But white dappled evergreens and mountains […]

Holiday Look: Red Lips

If a sparkly eye is not your beauty game plan for the holidays, a Red Lip is a classic choice. I’m guessing you have more than a few reds in your stash you can pull out now. From scarlet to bruised berry, there is a red to suit everyone and every […]

Kristin As Clementine

Kristin As Clementine

Dame Kristin Scott Thomas, 57, dazzled in Dior at the Darkest Hour premiere in Leicester Square London, December 11. Her metallic midnight-blue, double-breasted silk wrap coat, strewn with golden stars and constellations, was not only fashionable, but practical for the snowy London weather. Ankle-tied black heels set off the […]

Fine-ally

Fine-ally

It is rare for me to finish a bottle of shampoo; I never get to the bottom before I move on. So it goes into the shower and my thick-haired sons have glossy, healthy hair as a result. But as for me, I’ve tried a […]

A Little List

A Little List
