7. Coffee in Bed: I told Ben that all I wanted for my birthday was a good strong cup of coffee in bed…nothing beats it.
8. Granville Island Growing up, Saturday morning meant Granville Island, a coffee-mocha-chocolate chip muffin and feeding the birds. In all my travels I have never found anywhere like the Granville Island Market- from the vendors to the food to the buskers, live shows, children’s market, theatre, and fresh flowers…..rows and rows of fresh flowers. It fills every sense with beauty.
9.Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela. This is
one of THE best autobiography I have ever read. It was informative yet completely entertaining, written by one of the most amazing people to have graced the political stage. His personal character and determination inspire me as he spent a life fighting for a better life for all South Africans (most of which was in prison). I strongly recommend.
10. Kiehl’s I got hooked the year after we got married when I was working on Robson Street in Vancouver. Their Gentle Foaming Cleanser is just that, gentle and I like that their Ultra Facial Moisturizer has SPF15. For a little indulgence try their Lavender Bath Foam. I have even got Ben hooked on their Men’s Aftershave Balm. I kid you not, he just remarked today, “this is like the bottle that never ends.” Because while the price tag may turn you off, you only need a little so they last a very long time.
