Vanessa Lamont

Also known as Miss V, Vanessa has brought her love of coffee, dancing, and bawdy sense of humor to a variety of roles at LUSH. She started working her moves on the shop floor in Victoria, BC, and crossed the ocean to Vancouver to take the reins as the Customer Care manager. From there her witty wordplay landed her the dream job of LUSH Times Editor. She also had the honor of working with the Charity Pot team, before moving on to start the Content department. The proud winner of the "Most Inappropriate Comment" award is putting her passion for LUSH and words to good use, we hope so anyway. When she isn't tip-tapping on the keyboard, Vanessa can be found drinking (more) coffee, perusing the local Farmer's Market, riding her bikes, going for long walks with her dog, or practicing her dance moves.

It's the first long weekend of Summer!

Posted In: LUSH Life

And yes, technically it's still Spring for another month. And we know that our US friends have to wait another week for a 3-day weekend...

But those are just minor details! What's more important is that the warm weather and sunshine are finally upon us. The days are long and languid. Gone are the memories of cold, rain, sleet, and snow. Even if it was only last week.

We're dreaming of bicycle rides, the Farmer's Market, picnics in the park, lazy naps in the sunshine, BBQ's, gardening, chalk drawings on the sidewalk, watermelon and popsicles - every fun-filled, carefree activity we can think of to pack into a long weekend.

After months of feeling cooped up inside it's time to get outside and enjoy green spaces, friends, family, and the neighborhoods we live in. Now 3 long days are before you. Are you staying in town, or heading out to a lake or seaside locale? Or are you packing your hiking boots and getting ready to scale a mountain? Wherever you go, or whatever adventures you get up to - enjoy every minute! And please don't forget to protect your skin with sunscreen and a hat!
