INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

Vancouver sometimes can be really expensive, and therefore we stop attending places that we used to go when we were at home because they were way cheaper.

Finding a cheap place for both men and women to get your hair cut here can be quite difficult and it’s  way too expensive.

This week, I would like  to show you an interesting , nice and cheap option for those who can’t afford expending lots of money for taking care of their hairs.

There is a hair training centre in West Broadway at Cambie, where you can get a very good price for their services.

For example, for both men and women, Shampoo, Cut and Blow Dry  is $9 dollars for short hair and $10 dollars for long hair. 

Additionally, If you want to request flat iron you’ll pay $15 dollars, instead of $10.

Hair Up and Evening Styling starting from $35.

Conditioning treatments available from $10 ( conditioning or clarifying treatment) to $25 (clear gloss treatment).

Perms and colors are available from $25 and up and hi-lights are also really cheap, starting from $45.

  • The best: It’s very cheap if you compare it with another hair dressers.
  • The worst: all the services are performed by students, but they are always supervised by professionals.

Check here all the services if you are interested.

Name: Future Hair Training Centre

Address : 512 W Broadway, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1E9

Telephone: (604) 709-6055

Hope it helped guys.

Best,

Grouse Mountain Hike! Part 2

Hi everyone,

Well like Laura said, the hike up Grouse mountain was brutal! But it was so worth it when you reach the top and  see the view. You appreciate it so much more because  it took so much effort getting there! But the hiking up the mountain is not all you can do at Grouse Mountain. There are lots of activities to keep you busy the entire day!

When we got to the top the first thing we did  was take pictures of the beautiful view, and to also take a much needed rest. After grabbing something to eat and sitting in the sun, we went to explore the rest of the mountain. We started walking and soon discovered that there is lots to do.

There was a Lumber Jack show, where they show you how they cut wood and how they climb trees with a band. When we arrived, the show had already started and was almost over. There was this very funny guy, pretending to be stranded on one of the big pole they use to show how to climb a tree. I won’t go in to a lot of details, you just have to go up there yourself, because it was hilarious! The show is hosted three times a day.

There was also a bird viewing show. We got to see some amazing birds up close. There was a bird that was doing it’s third show and did not want to cooperate and flew up an electricity pole. It took a lot of convincing from the trainer to get the bird down again. There was also an eagle and at the time of the show a wild eagle flew over and they started gawking at each other! It was a totally awesome show!

There is also a grizzly bear habitat. Unfortunately we did not see any grizzly bears, but there was a wild black bear walking around.  Because the black bear was walking around they closed the walking path to make sure that everyone left him alone. So we decided to take another walking route! And it was totally worth it!

Have you ever seen snow in June? And I am not talking about a little bit of leftover snow but enough snow to  make a snowman! So we did! Before starting on the hike we asked people who where coming back what they thought of the trail. They said that there was a bit of snow so we decided to walk anyway. But there was a lot more snow than we thought!  I had never seen snow in June before so that made it extra special.

At the end of the day we took the gondola back down. This was the only thing we had to buy that day. So we had an amazing day for only $5.00 (not including transport).

I really recommend everyone to go to Grouse Mountain! I had such a amazing time and I also recommend everyone hiking up the mountain. If you don’t want to hike up the mountain but would still like to enjoy a day at Grouse Mountain for $39. 95 you can go up and down the mountain with the gondola. This ticket also includes a ride on a chairlift, giving an even better view and access to all of the shows and other activities at Grouse Mountain.

Café Crêpe

I think I’m in love. With crêpes. This weekend, I went for another stroll down Robson Street, however I didn’t get very far. The sweet, sweet aroma of chocolate drizzle, strawberry and nutella made me stop dead in my tracks. Could it be? Love at first bite…

I had always seen the red lights that hovered above this little restaurant on Robson street, but had never stopped to order anything. Usually I eat lunch before heading out for some shopping, but on Saturday all I could think about was food! As soon as the smell of melting chocolate and fresh cut strawberries reached my nostrils, I was running towards the express window at Café Crêpe.

Importing the tradition of the classic European café to North America, Café Crêpe specializes in Parisian sweet & savoury crêpes. There are so many different types of crêpes to try at this hub, it can drive a hungry person mad! In addition to crêpes, they also specialize in french baguette sandwiches, and grilled Italian panini.  As an international café, Café Crêpe also offers world classics like half-pound certified Angus burgers, pommes frites (french fries),thin crust pizza, and a full traditional breakfast menu that includes Eggs Benedict and an exciting variety of omelettes, among other specialties. In addition to serving exceptional Italian roasted coffee, Café Crêpe is fully licensed, offering a vast selection of alcoholic beverages and cocktails, along with select beers and wines.

Everyone NEEDS to try something from this restaurant. Although a little pricey (depending on what you order), you will not be let down! I still dream about this crêpe.

Enjoy your eats!
