One thing I enjoy about Vancouver is that aside from franchises, chains and box stores, we have a wide range of independently-operated and locally-owned shops. One of such establishments is Wish.List Boutique on Broadway at MacDonald. It is a joint venture by a mother and daughter team that specializes in bringing designer beauty products, jewelry, cosmetics, and lingerie to Kitsilano.

On November 17th and 18th the entire store will be 25% off as they host a shopping party from 5:00pm – 8:00pm each day. Stop in to take a look around and have a drink or a mini-makeover while you shop.

In honor of this event they have offered up a giveaway for my readers. The prize package (valued at $80) is filled with goodies from Wish.List as well as a gift card to spend at the boutique.

If you would like to enter to win this prize, please leave a comment listing your favourite accessory or beauty item for fall and winter. A chunky scarf, pendant necklace, carry-all handbag, scented candle, lotion… you name it.

I will draw one winner November 23rd at 12:00pm. Wish.List Boutique is located at 2811 West Broadway in Vancouver.

Update The winner is Martha!

    The accessory which is paramount to one’s wardrobe has always been gloves and gloves are my absolute favourite. One can just never have enough pairs of gloves–every imaginable shade, fabric, texture….gotta love winter just because of gloves! They keep your manicure lasting longer, your honkin’ 2-carat zeezees safe from getting chipped, and germs away from your fingers while you reach for cash. It’s a tad difficult to text message in them (I’m 60 and arthritic) but gloves are the ultimate accessory–get out there and get some gloves!
