Solo Lisa Reads: February 2019

Round-up of recommended books for February 2019: Robyn Harding's The Party, Aimee Molloy's The Perfect Mother, Shaun Francis's Eat Move Think, Mindy Mejia's Everything You Want Me To Be

I caught the flu from Hubs even after getting the flu shot, and although the virus came and went quickly it left the worst cough. The only upside to being sick for most of February? More time to read. These books (which I received from publishers for review or bought on Kobo ages ago) were interesting enough to keep my attention even through a medication-induced haze.


Solo Lisa Tries: Eliane Hair & Spa

As I said in yesterday's post, a pre-Valentine's Day visit to your local salon is always a welcome idea, whether you're gearing up for a romantic night on the town or you just need to show yourself some love with a little self-care to get through the long winter months. I was definitely in the latter category when I stepped into Eliane Hair & Spa on a sunny Saturday morning. I'd been under the weather with a terrible flu, and I definitely looked and felt run down when I stepped through the doors.


Solo Lisa Tries: Lily & Roo Nail Salon

Valentines Day-inspired gel manicure from Lily & Roo Vancouver

After Lunar New Year, the next major February highlight is Valentine's Day! Whether you're celebrating over a romantic evening, doing something special for Galentines Day, or you just need show yourself some love with a bit of self-care to get through the long winter months, a trip to the salon is always a good idea. I recently had the privilege of trying services at two new-to-me salons in Vancouver that are definitely worth checking out if any or all of the above apply to you this Valentine's Day. First up? A gel mani at Lily & Roo.
