Today's Vancouver Mom: Dee Clarke of the Joy of Style

I live in the West End with my husband, Chris, our very sporty 12 year old son, Ryder, and our grouchy cat, Rosie.

I lead a double life. I am a Fit 4 Two® Pre and Postnatal Fitness franchisee/instructor as well as a Personal Stylist/Personal Shopper and co-owner of The Joy of Style.

Dee’s favourite spots around the city

Akira Sushi

They have black rice and ever since we started coming here I can’t eat any other kind of sushi!

Greenhorn Cafe

East Van in the West End. Hipster. Artsy. Friendly. Tiny patio. Great lunch spot.

Delany’s Coffee House

The best place to grab a latte or blended coffee drink before heading to English Bay.

1105 Denman St, Vancouver



Simple yet creative, fresh and delicious Italian food. Incredible pizza and pasta. Definitely worth waiting in the line up for. No reservations. Go early if you are bringing the kids.

Inspired Spanish tapas. My mouth is very happy here!
