I am wondering if anyone knows where I can buy clear beads to use in a make up brush holder. I can't seem to find them at Michaels but maybe I looked in the wrong area.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I apologize if this photo is huge. I'm posting through the app as my work computer won't let me log in.
Some of you may have seen these pictures around the city:
He went missing in September... I can't imagine what his family must be going through. I figured the least I could do was spread the word. He went missing in Coquitlam but it seems like his family thinks he even could have wandered downtown.
Here is a link to the Facebook page. (In case anyone is curious, I posted this to Tumblr, too.)
What are some good stores for suit shopping in Vancouver? I'm looking for something conservative, of course, but I don't want to look frumpy or out-of-date... which I'm guessing will be a danger in the cheaper-suit range.
How much should I expect to spend on a decent women's suit? Ideally I'd like an answer in the form of "price range $x to $y will get you a suit with these characteristics, price range $y to $z will get you a suit with those other characteristics". I'm ok with cheaper materials, but I don't want something that's going to fall apart really quickly.
I've got an hourglass-ish figure: bust 106cm (42in), waist 87cm (34in), hips 117cm (46in). So I'll need to get the suit tailored for it to fit well. I've heard that buying a cheap suit and getting it tailored is a good idea anyway. What tailor/seamstress should I go to? Any suggestions for brands/stores with suits that fit well for curvier women?
In a couple of months I plan to send some personal belongings from Vancouver to Massachusetts, US. The overall weight is below 100 kg (several boxes). Could someone recommend me the best way to do that? I do not move the entire apartment with furniture etc and not sure what "movers" company (or whatever it is) could deal with that <100kg weight.
Thanks in advance - I would appreciate any advice.
I live in a "garden level" basement suite in a house that hasn't been renovated since it was converted in to a rental in the 70s and the darkness of the place gets me down sometimes. While I was away for the Christmas holidays my boyfriend painted the living room and hallway and then surprised me when I came home (how amazing was that??). This has really inspired me to spruce the place up a little. However, I really know nothing about decorating. I am on a budget, I am not particularly crafty, and I find it difficult to find "treasures" while wading through junk at thrift stores (but I am always amazed by what my friends can find). I don't really have any art but I do have decent photography skills and a pretty good collection of hiking and travel photos and I have a bunch of plants. That's my starting point. I would love to hear ANY suggestions that any of you may have. What kind of stores should I check out? (I just got a gift card to Anthropologie, but if I didn't have the gift card the store would be waaay out of my price range). Are there any particular thrift stores that have decent art/decorative items? Where can I buy cheap but nice picture frames? Are there places where I can buy framed art prints that are not too pricey? What are simple items that can turn a room around and where can I find them in Vancouver? I am working with brown carpet, wood beams that go up the walls and across the ceiling, and a partial brick wall (with no fireplace). Any time I think of furnishing a home on a budget I can ONLY think of IKEA. Please help me broaden my horizons!
P.S. I hope I don't come across as some kind of princess here. I fully appreciate the fact that I have a roof over my head and all the heating and electricity I can dream of and relatively cheap rent. I would just like to make it look a little nicer.
1) Used parenting books. Are there any used bookstores you know that have a good parenting section? Books on midwifery, birthing, stuff by Penny Simkin, Dr. Sears, etc, not the fluffy stuff. I am a post partum doula and I'm trying to beef up my collection of recommended books to loan out to expectant parents. Due to my nerdy and environmental nature, most everything I have purchased is in ebook format. Only now am I seeing what a bad investment that was going forward lol (p.s. if you've got these types of books I'd be willing to purchase them from you)
2) Best place to get a new Telus phone/contract/signup THIS WEEKEND. So, what I mean, is I have gotten most of my phones in the past from Future Shop but I went in there today and there were temp staff that couldn't answer questions and since I'm buying an expensive phone and an expensive plan I want to feel confident in my salesperson. Any suggestions?
I seem to recall going to actual sticker shops when I was a kid - do those even still exist?
My Google-fu is failing me, other than online cafe-press type shops and places in Vancouver where you can have like 100+ of your stickers custom made, but I'm looking for a bunch of different ones and not ones I design myself...Any ideas?
I gave proper noticed, and paid rent for November, and informed the landlord in advance I would be gone for most of November, but would be back before the end of the rental period to clean, and turn in the keys.
I went 3 days before the end of the rental period was up and she had cleaned the place herself and left a note saying she did so.
Now she sent the damage deposit with 50 deducted for cleaning.
Its not a ton of money, but it seems wrong she since entered without my knowledge and cleaned before I had even moved out.
