Latest Outfit: Summer Dress-ing

Striped summer sun dress

I initially hesitated posting these photos because this outfit is pretty much the same as one from last year, with a few slight accessories tweaks. But then, that's the beauty of a dress like this. It's a timeless and flattering style, an instant outfit, and something to look forward to sporting every summer. I've been wearing this dress about once a week because it's such an easy piece and doesn't even need ironing. Every summer wardrobe should have a frock like this (or three!).

My Experience at CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La

CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La

CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La is an oasis in the midst of an urban jungle and arguably the most luxurious spa I've ever visited. (And I've visited quite a few Vancouver spas.) I was there last month to try out the Sea Therapy Facial, a new anti-aging treatment which rejuvenates and hydrates skin with certified-organic whole seaweeds, marine minerals, and ocean mud. Hmm spas and seaweed facials—it's a tough gig, but someone has to do it.

Best of Summer Beauty from P&G

Top summer beauty picks from P&G Beauty

In the streamlined realm of summer beauty, glowing skin and clean, shiny locks go a long way. (Just throw on tinted lip balm, a fresh nail polish colour, and oversize shades and you're good to go!) I've been test-driving and loving these new essentials from P&G Beauty for the last month. Terrific for surviving summer, yes, but also for year-round use.
