Bijou Baby Girls Dresses

Bijou Baby: The perfect little dress

Bijou Baby is a darling online dress boutique run by Vancouverite, Sabrina Pizzolato. They have the cutest little dresses, perfect for wedding time, summer time , photo shoots or any time. They are very affordable and my daughter LOVES wearing them over and over. Here are a few words from Sabrina:

“Bijou Baby  was created shortly after the birth of my second daughter. With a new baby and a two year old at home, I found that I just did not have the time to shop in the traditional sense; the girls were on opposite feeding and sleeping schedules so shopping outings (or any other outing for that matter) was challenging!
On the rare occasion that I was able to get away for a short while, I found it difficult to find pieces for my little girls that were timeless and unique. As a result, Bijou Baby was born; a way to find beautiful, vintage inspired pieces for your little girls from the comfort of home.

Please feel free to contact me through the link above; I would love to hear your feedback.  Enjoy your shopping experience and I hope that you find a piece for the Bijou Baby in your life!”

They are the perfect little dress for any occasion! New stock arrives all the time so contact Sabrina for any specific requests.

BC Helicopters Vancouver

BC Helicopters: On Top of the World.

BC_Helicopters_mountain_wedding (2)

BC Helicopters brings people to amazing and remote places so they can experience the wondrous beauty around them. Mischa, the pilot, tells me that one of his favourite parts of the flight is the first moments after landing. He opens the door and the look of pure joy and amazement on passenger’s faces makes every flight worth it. We should know, I think we spent 15 min just ooo-ing and awww-ing at the views when we’ve gone up this past summer. We wanted to give Ashley and Verlon Mundall, of Dragonflight Photography, a HUGE thank you and shout out for the introduction to Mischa, as it was their engagement session when we first met Mischa.

Mischa knows where all of the cool and unique spots are. What’s really amazing is to think that in some places he takes you, you may very well be the first person to ever set foot on that mountain ground. We’ve seen lakes so blue and clear, they shine like gemstones. It’s one of the greatest experiences we’ve had and it’s not something that is easily forgotten.

The moment you get out of the helicopter, you’re perched on some of the highest peaks of the coastal mountains, all you can notice is how quiet it is. Not a sound. No cars, no traffic, no voices, nothing. And the air is so clear and clean you just want to lay down and soak it all in, in silence. It is certainly my happy place. I used to be a beach girl but after getting to experience the atmosphere up there, I can’t wait to go back.

Not only is Mischa a great pilot, instructor and videographer, he’s also been lighting and photo assistant extraordinaire on our past trips. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend it. You’ll want to keep going back, again and again!

Here are some videos that he and his team have shot of the amazing beauty up in that region. It does not disappoint!

The most amazing valleys.

The bluest lakes I’ve ever seen, even more than the Rocky Mountain lakes.

Scandinave Spa Whistler

Scandinave Spa in Whistler: The perfect place to relax

Scandinave Spa in Whistler has been a place we’ve been hearing rave reviews about for years. We’re so excited to be visiting there for the first time this winter. Their belief is simple, “to create a space of well-being where you can relax in the heart of nature”. Sounds pretty good to me! This spa resort is engulfed in a spruce and cedar forest on the edge of Lost Lake and Spruce Grove parks and overlooks incredible mountain vistas and the Whistler/Blackcomb valleys. Recognized for their energizing and relaxing effects, the Scandinavian baths have many health benefits. Their unique methods of warming, cooling and relaxing will cleanse the body, stimulate blood circulation and release endorphins.

We have heard people going here as part of their honeymoon, couples’ retreats, bridal party gifts and even just treating yourself. We’re very excited to be going here and we’ll give you a full report!

Check out their video for the full experience:
