Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and family! Friends down South will have to wait another month. This year, I have so much to be thankful for. BTW, our move went extremely smooth!

Now that we are settling into our new home, I’m freaking out about Christmas and all the Holiday gift sets that are coming out in stores. Like the Naked Vault Vol 3 gift set above! It’s like a Naked junkie’s dream come true!

Summer finally has arrived in Vancouver with temperatures near 30 °C. It feels like the only place to stay sane is in the pool, beach or anywhere with air conditioning running 24/7. It is also this time of year that much more special in BC. It is really having a vacation at home. It is a time to find somewhere local to getaway: Vancouver Island, Tofino, Summerland, or the Okanagan for some tasty wines. But while we plan our mini-staycation, here are some good ol’ internet stuff!
