hop to it

French Rabbit wine has finally arrived in BC, and we say, hop along the bunny trail to your nearest LDB for a carton (we’ll explain) of this fun French sipper.

seattle without the battle

September 27th, 2006

A fun girl’s getaway to Seattle’s spanking new Hotel 1000 with its high-tech rooms and luxury tubs is definitely in order this fall.

Timed to the pre-Christmas sale season, chauffeured on a private coach, and organized by someone else, well, it sounds like a dream getaway.

Dream no longer.

West Vancouver’s new all-women travel company Women With Wings has organized just such an exc ...

September 26th, 2006

With one of our vitamin v gals about to take the plunge, we thought we’d share some words of wedding wisdom. Herewith, our top 10 wedding trends:

flat out

September 25th, 2006

Just when you’d perfected your bouncy bombshell curls this summer, pin-straight hair is again the rage for fall.

But if you managed to make yourself into a frizzy, female David Lee Roth with flat iron use last time around, relax: new technology has arrived.

The KQC X-Heat ceramic styling iron creates gentle infrared heat (just like those new saunas you keep hearing about) that goe ...

now hear this

September 22nd, 2006

We’re always up for a tear-jerking love ballad, especially when it’s sung by Canada’s Ron Sexmith.

‘Ron who?’ you ask. How this epic songwriter has slipped just under the radar for so long is a mystery, but that’s all about to end with this album. So where’s he been? Oh, just playing London and Paris and hanging with his biggest fans, like Coldplay’s Chris Martin, ...
