Zero Waste - reduce, reuse and recycle

January 20th, 2012
  • +1

This morning my husband mentioned that I should watch a segment on "The View" regarding a family that has changed their lifestyle to "Zero Waste". They literally only collect a mason jar full of garbage within a year. It is pretty amazing. My husband knew that I would be interested as I am always looking for ways to be environmentally friendly. We have one garbage bin and some weeks have only ...

Drive careful another winter storm warning is in effect

January 19th, 2012
We moved here almost 7 years ago from Ontario to get away from the cold and the snow....-20 C with the windchill is not fun at all. It wasn't back east and it's no better here in BC. Then to add another 10-15cm that we are expected to get, and to top it off with freezing rain. All I can say now is ....Drive careful, if you don't have to go anywhere tomorrow it might be a good idea to stay hom ...

Looking for stylish new glasses check out Site for Sore Eyes in White Rock

January 18th, 2012

Looking for stylish new glasses check out Site for Sore Eyes in #White Rock. We love to support local businesses and this is one I have mentioned before and felt it was worth mentioning again. Last night before Yoga I took my daughter to get a new pair of glasses and as always she has a hard time deciding which ones she would like as there are so many exquisite pairs to choose from. When you ...

Bank of Montreal's 2.99% is it a good one?

January 17th, 2012
The Bank of Montreal recently came out with a 5year fixed rate of 2.99%. The lowest we have seen from Canadian banks. A few of the other major banks are looking at matching the rate or offering something similar.

We have had a number of people asking us about what we think. Everyone should be very careful before getting too excited about the rate and make sure they sit down with their mortgag ...

Donate your old bras to Mexican breast cancer survivors

January 15th, 2012
We all have them...old bras that sit in the back of the drawer and never get worn. You don't know what to do with them because you can't just donate them to a thrift store and if you're like me you feel guilty throwing them in the garbage. (I like to recycle or give away as much as I can.) 

Yvonne, the owner of Malary's in #Cloverdale will be heading to Mexico soon to help out more than 500 b ...

This ones for the ladies...all about bras

January 13th, 2012

I want to give a special thank you to Yvonne and the rest of her staff from Malary's fashion network in #Cloverdale. She was kind enough to open up her shop for myself and a few friends, family and colleagues. We all enjoyed ourselves and came out with a few great new pieces from her shop to add to our wardrobe. But I think the hit of the night was learning and then experiencing Yvonne's "Tab ...

BC tax Assessments are in

January 12th, 2012

By now everyone should have had their BC Assessments come in the mail. Surrey and White Rock residents saw their tax assessments go up between 7-8%. Whereas Langley City only increased by 1.5% and the Township almost 3.5%. I have had a few calls from Surrey clients upset with their tax assessments having increased as much as much as they did. I thought it was worth reminding everyone that if ...
