kitsfest in vancouver

Visiting and being part of KitsFest for the first time this summer was an unreal experience. The whole premise behind this yearly summer festival is for Vancouverites to come together as a community, get outside and get sweaty in the sun! There were dozens and dozens of vendors promoting their products that fit into a healthy lifestyle as well are 3 tournaments that happened over the weekend - basketball, tennis and beach volleyball.

I have this exact same Babolat tennis racquet so I had to get a picture with it the giant version!

My brother is a total coconut oil fan and has been constantly feeding me knowledge on how healthy it is. Did you know you can whiten your teeth with it? Take a teaspoon of coconut oil and swish it around your mouth for 20-30 minutes. It's a little gross at first but you get used to it. This is the 'pulling' technique which the Natives used to do years ago. No word of a lie, this works better (and is less expensive and abrasive on your teeth) than whitening strips.

Now that my whole family is on the coconut train, we have boxes of ONE Coconut Water at home. At KitsFest they were handing them out all day which was amazing.

As I was walking along the beach, I found a Vancouver Beach Nuts serving fresh coconuts. I hate to say it but nothing beats the real thing!

Yoga on the beach at sunset hosted by Lululemon? It literally doesn't get anymore West Coast than that! At about mid-afteroon they took down all the volleyball nets and strung white balloons that were tied on a long rope between each volleyball post. I thought this was a magical sight until I saw hundreds of fellow yogis covered head to to in colour on their mats on the sand beneath the balloons . . .
