W Skin Care – Microdermabrasion + LLLT (Cold Laser)

If you follow Lainey Gossip, you’ll know that she loves and raves about Lorinda Zimmerman’s W Skin Care services as the anti-aging and facial miracle worker. I recently had a chance to try out their famous double blast treatment at the original Vancouver location, and loved the experience. It’s known to attract Hollywood actresses who actually fly down from LA just for the day for appointments. The unique combination of microdermabrasion and Low Light Laser Therapy (LLLT) is heralded for its effective yet natural looking results.

I am very wary of youth-seeking treatments like botox or fillers as they have the tendency to come out looking too severe and obvious in that “you’ve had work done” way. Which is why I really like Zimmerman’s restorative approach to skin care. Non-invasive, and more focused on enhancing the skin’s natural radiance vs. dramatically changing one’s face.

Mad about Plaid

When I was in junior high, I was dying to get contacts. I thought glasses were clunky, and an immediate indication of your nerd level. But after years of wearing soft lenses 7 days/week, I’ve learned to love and look forward to those few days a week where I just let my eyes breathe.

Here’s an outfit I wore with my deep brown wayfarer frames and comfy plaid flannel shirt.

Breka Tasting

After my initial post on Breka Cafe, I was contacted by head pastry chef Ann Cao to come in for a private tasting. As a previously impressed patron, I was happy to oblige.

We met, and chatted over a lovely lunch of smoked meat paninis and fresh fruit with granola topped yogurt. The granola is actually made in house, and I’m told it’s frequently asked for by customers who’d like to purchase a whole bag (which sadly, they do not offer at the moment). Vancouver food blogDSC_0086-4

Leather Vests & Top Knots

I’ve recently fallen in love with the loose high top knot. It’s just such an easy and effortless way to pull your hair into something presentable but still chic. Not as polished as a classic bun, but looks great and takes only minutes to do.

Keratin Hair Smoothing: Salon Haze

During the holidays, I was approached by Salon Haze to come check out their fairly new West Broadway salon. They invited me for a complimentary hair service to review on my blog. Since I wasn’t looking to get my hair cut or colored, I opted to try their keratin smoothing treatment.
