L.A. livin' + an amazing giveaway!

As I'm sure you've already guessed, these photos weren't taken in Vancouver.

I shot this look during the final day of my recent Southern California trip — which, of course, included a quick trip to Los Angeles. 

Having grown up predominately in SoCal (I lived in Orange County from preschool through middle school, and San Diego for university), I've always felt a special connection to the state. But, since moving to Vancouver, I haven't felt the pull to return quite as strong as I did during my last visit. 

It may sound odd, but this time, it just felt like ... well, home. 

Maybe it was just a pull of nostalgia, the pretty palm trees — or it could have just been the delicious break the trip afforded me from the daily grind. 

I mean, I KNOW I'm not the only one that feels like their day goes from 0-60 about 30 seconds after waking up each day. 

Some days I don't have the time to curl my hair let alone get my hair coloured. Which is why I'm so excited about a new contest from Schwarzkopf Professional.

In celebration of the company's IGORA COLOR10 hair colour — which gives full-coverage colour in 10 minutes (#believeit!) — Schwarzkopf Professional is giving away a Gift of Time contest. 

One lucky winner will receive a $1,500 prize pack including a personal chef for a day (can you even IMAGINE!?), a complimentary IGORA COLOR10 colour service for them and a friend, a $500 prize pack from Schwarzkopf Professional AND a $50 gift card to eLuxe.ca. 

Now THAT'S a contest I'd like to win. 

To enter, visit www.WinTheGiftOfTime.ca.

Good luck!
