ShowOff 2013 A Celebration Of Hair Fashion

What a blast!

BeautyCouncil, L'Oreal, Goldwell, AGhair and City TV put together a sight that was a feast for my eyes

10 Vancouver Salons with 5 minutes to ShowOff. They could have up to 5 dancers or Models on stage and showcase their hair, makeup, clothes, presentation and music

I decided to go fairly casual as I was concerned I would be quite active and didn't want to be uncomfortable. I wore pink in honor of Look Good Feel Better. They do exactly what they say, help cancer patients look good and feel better about themselves while in treatment

The Venue: the historic Vogue Theatre in downtown Vancouver, BC

Sorry, couldn't take the shot without adding the Orpheum...the good old days of Granville Street

Talia Beckett from Pink Pearl PR was gracious enough to invite me, and give me full backstage access

This is the swag bag waiting at my seat

Full of product, nom nom

They had a twitter screen set up to catch the hype, Catherine Barr a local columnist tweeting away

Backstage was sooooo fun!

Only... just my dream camera

Have I got something on my face?

OMG, WOW! I'm not sure how to describe it. I didn't blink I was afraid I'd miss something. The theme this year was "natural glamour" what? on another planet maybe.

I highly suggest adding this to your next years list of not to miss events

Thank you to Talia Beckett from Pink Pearl PR for inviting me

Cypress Mountain Ski Review Vlog

Had a great day of skiing today

Carla - 8
Me - 6

Did not like the hassle of parking.  Alot of walking or ski skating involved to get to the village. I stopped skiing here years ago because of this and found it has not changed. We went on a monday and thank goodness or we would have had to park along the mountain road and walk an even longer distance. It is a very busy mountain

Once we got to the village and runs they are FABULOUS!. If you don't mind what it takes to get started you'll love it

The weather was great but we've had alot of rain and warm weather so the snow was pretty heavy, not the mountains fault just our luck

We never did go inside the Lodge which is new since we've been. Looked pretty spectacular though

There are two mountains to ski. We stayed on the side with the most sun. The other side which is the Olympic side was in the shade all day.

I found the way the mountains are situated even on the sunny side we came into shade alot. Of course its always icy in the shade so that was a bit tricky

Over all I still prefer Seymour. The way the mountain faces you get full sun all day on every run when it is sunny. Its also less popular so parking is a snap and never a lineup for the chairs. Now keep in mind the runs are shorter but still lots of fun

You be the judge

Lots of high end vehicles in the parking lot

We had a long way to skate to the village

New lodge

Old lodge

The Olympic side. We didn't ski there because it was in the shade all day. At one point I was questioning where all the jumps are...of course on the other side

Lunch break with an awesome view
