Beauty Moment | Charlotte Tilbury Quick ‘n’ Easy 5 Minute Kit
At Her Vancouver we receive a lot of beauty samples and it’s often a quick rip and swipe before heading out the door that composes our product testing procedure. More often than not, the product is just okay, not worthy of mention. However, once in a while we get stopped in our tracks with a “Wam jam thank-you ma’am!” magic beauty moment. This time that ma’am worth thanking  is Charlotte Tilbury. Not too long ago the products used by beauty maven and make-up artist to the stars, Charlotte Tilbury, became accessible to the masses [...]

Interviews | Joyce Murray, Woman in Politics
The upset in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the lost opportunity to elect the first female president of the United States caused Her Vancouver to dive deeper into our understanding of what it means to be a woman in politics. We decided to bring our examination to the grassroots of Canadian governance by interviewing Joyce Murray, the Member of Parliament for Vancouver Quadra. Her Vancouver selected Joyce, not because we have a personal affiliation with the Liberal Party of Canada (we don’t), but because of her pioneering work on environmental [...]

Interviews | Vanessa Leigh Founder and Publisher of ION Magazine
Her Vancouver has been in the publishing industry under various guises over the last decade and so it came as a huge surprise that we only recently met Vanessa Leigh Founder and Publisher of ION Magazine at an industry event. In this case we were well aware of Vanessa’s baby before we met the mama. ION Magazine has a cult following of music, art and fashion lovers. It was a sad day for print diehards when ION switched into an online-only format but regardless, we continue to hover over ION’s art [...]

Language Arts | Vancouver in the 70s
Her Vancouver was in Chapters Indigo for an event when we came across this amazing visual record: Vancouver in the 70s: Photos From a Decade That Changed the City. The exclusive images were compiled from The Vancouver Sun photo library and the book includes essays by long-time Sun News Research Librarian Kate Bird and former Sun journalist Shelley Fralic. Not only is Vancouver in the 70s a rich historical record of a rollicking decade buoyed by political upheaval and cultural evolution, through images of females as reformers, it reminds us that Vancouver [...]

Social Studies | Local Vancouver Woman Goes Missing
When a local woman goes missing Her Vancouver pays attention. Where and why is she gone? Does anybody know? Is it a continuation of the long history of violence against women or did she just check out of her life for a while. We noted the news of Florence Leung’s disappearance. She is a 32-year-old woman who gave birth to a baby boy 2 months ago. The news that she is a mother of a young child is bound to elicit sympathy and concern but this information also opens [...]

Home-Ec | Try Our Cranberry Apple Crumble Recipe
  This cranberry apple crumble recipe is the ultimate desert on a chilly winter’s night. We recently cycled by the cranberry fields when they were drowned with water, creating a sea of pink. Workers were knee deep in the field, gathering up the floating berries. While Vancouver may not have tropical fruits growing in our backyard, various types of berries are always in season. We love the mix of sweet and tartness in this cranberry apple crumble recipe and for an extra bonus, it’s gluten-free and made with low calorie [...]
