Have you…

heard of Bentlily? When I receive my daily poem from Bentlily, I truly believe my blood pressure lowers. Samantha Reynolds is a power house in her actual entrepreneurial venture called Echo Memoirs, but somehow it seems in her spare time she writes a poem every day.

Here's how the bathroom looked before...

and here's after!

To maintain a light, airy vibe in this Vancouver reno, designer Nancy Riesco designed two floating vanities in bleached oak — a practical his-and-hers solution.

Real Estate Swap?

While I have been approached by buyers and sellers to swap real estate in the last few weeks instead of buy it, there was a real swap that took place on May 30th! If you weren't there, it was fun as usual. Over 50 people attended the bi-annual clothing and accessories swap.
