There's no place like home

Litia Wilson is shaking things up with her new home cleaning business Peachy Clean.  

You know how the old saying, "There's no place like home" right, but Litia believes it’s time for change, so the new saying will be, "There's no place like a clean home."

Peachy Clean understands that a clean home is much more than just a dust and mop.

They pride themselves on service and exceeding expectations. They understand it’s the small things that have the biggest impact, in that way they aim to leave no fruit unturned in making sure your home shines and is always Peachy Clean.

CBC just reported that a UBC and Harvard study found that time makes people happier than buying material things.  

I could have probably saved them a lot of money by sending them my first video, and maybe you should contact Peachy Clean so you can get some time back yourself.

Happy one-year anniversary to The Beauty and Shave Parlor.  

Courtnay Scott created this new upbeat salon on Yates Road after extensive training took her from New York to L.A..  

It is modern salon for today’s man and woman that offers a full range of classic barbering services.  

You need to check out the website because it is too much to list what Courtnay, Ashleigh and Nicole all specialize in but let me tell you they know what they are doing.

Go celebrate with their awesome staff at their retro shop Saturday evening.  

Congratulation to Dr. James Whillans and Dr. Nicole Barbary because they are celebrating 10 years of changing and saving lives through Wellness Chiropractic this Saturday.

LifeWorks Family Chiropractic focuses on improving the performance of your nervous system so that you can reach higher levels of health, vitality and joy. Not your average chiropractor, eh?

Come and join them this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2.p.m. They will be having an outdoor barbecue with live entertainment, fun activities for the kids and an opportunity for you to send in your friends and family for a check-up for only $10.  

It’s all coming up Koren this week.
The Kore Four dreams became reality this past month as Kennedy and I became owners alongside their parents Suzann and Tony Koren.  

The Koren family are so excited for this new venture that they are inviting all of us to celebrate with them at their grand opening this Saturday.

Champagne will start pouring at 4 p.m. near the Delta Grand.

Center of Gravity is back this weekend.  

If you recall, last year I needed to look up some of the headliners and that made me feel a little bit older than I wanted to, but this year I am all good because Snoop Dogg is performing Saturday night.  

COGFEST 2017 will still have all the fan favourite sports again this year; beach volleyball, basketball, freestyle motocross, skateboarding, and BMX, plus another lineup of today’s hottest artists performing across two stages, and much, much more. 

This is an amazing summer must do event.

Don’t forget about the Sugar Plum Ball this Saturday night.

It is circus themed so I am sure the pictures are going to be even more glorious then last year. 

Make it a great week!
