Shopping Diary: June 2009

DA VINCI’S HOME This West Van haven of shabby-chic recently expanded, more than doubling in size and introducing new home-décor lines to an already impressive line-up. Think tabletop accessories by Michael Aram and Beatriz Ball, plus personal-care products like Voluspa candles, triple-milled soaps from Gianna Rose Atelier, and home fragrance diffusers by K. Hall Designs. 1461 Bellevue Ave., West Vancouver, 604-921-3344.


WINK BEAUTY LOUNGE Vivian Ko Gooch, owner of this Gastown beauty emporium, is the go-to girl for semi-permanent eyelash extensions (just ask her legion of drag queen devotees). Haven’t you heard? False lashes are the new fake breasts, so you want a full and natural-looking set. 67 E. Cordova St., 604-696-9465.
