About Pretty Little Flip
After three successful live-in house flips as husband and wife, Sandy & Andrew are about to tackle their biggest project yet; building a custom home from the ground up!

Welcome to Pretty Little Flip.

A new home & lifestyle blog that follows the life of Sandy with her husband Andrew, as they attempt to build their new home from the ground up, on-time and on-budget. All while juggling trades, inevitable construction delays and an incredibly tight budget.

Sandy is a TV makeup artist turned house-flipper. She went from designing faces to designing spaces. Her experience of over a decade working as a makeup artist and beauty expert, allows her to see a house like a face without makeup; a blank canvas waiting to be transformed with a beautiful makeover. Sandy runs their flipping business as the designer and project manager; she finds the properties and handles the designs of the new spaces, while ensuring everything is on time and on budget. Andrew is the muscle behind their operation - and although he has a full-time day job, he spends all his spare time working on their house - except when the Toronto Raptors are playing, of course.
