Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday but it can easily turn into a hot mess of sugar and sweets. There are so many other ways to show love and appreciation to the people in your life that don’t involve a sharp jolt of insulin or the inevitable crash that follows.  Here are some ideas for gift ideas that don’t involve any sugar at all from some of our favourite shops.

This exciting show is in Vancouver with matinee and evening performances are now scheduled through March 5, 2017. Select tickets are 15% off and can be purchased here.

The Joy of Style

I had the opportunity to explore my love of fashion with Dee and Mara of The Joy of Style. A style makeover is really the gift of self-care and self-reflection. It’s an opportunity to discover joy in the way you dress and redefine how you are perceived by others and yourself. Whether it’s a style party or a personal consultation these ladies know how to help you feel even better in your skin and your clothes.
