Support

The people in our lives that help us do what we do should know that we appreciate them.  I feel like it’s a given.  I’d like to thank every single client who has ever patronized our shop since we were born 5 years ago.  We turn 5 on Monday and are celebrating at the shop ALL DAY Tuesday.  Come down and check it out!  Come say hi!  Come get a tour!  Come and have some snacks and fancy drinks!  Come and wish us well!

Holidaze

I’m dreaming of the day I can wear open-toed anything and bare my arms.  I’m dreaming of the hot sun and sand between my toes.  Some of our staff are on holidays as we speak.  What are you up to?  Heading anywhere warm?  These photos remind me of a warmer time.  Happy day of Love!

tumblr_mifjc5rnZU1qze3kto1_1280Here’s a note.  Short and sweet.

Hi,

Don’t forget to take some time for yourself right now.  Life is real crazy and sometimes we forget to take time.  It doesn’t matter what you do or how you do it, just do it.

Hot Holidays!

beach-girl-sea-sun-sundown-Favim.com-117530Are you setting off to a warmer climate this winter season?  Are you prepared for the changes that the heat will do to your hair and skin?  As you pack up your bikinis and sunscreen, make sure not to forget the products that protect your hair, skin and nails.  Leaving an extremely cold climate to an extreme warm one is lovely for your hair/skin/nails when you’re on your way, but as you return??

WELCOME TO THE NEW AGE

tumblr_mucngz6ikt1qaonh9o1_5002015 is here!  Resolutions, begin!  I’m amazed at how fast last year came and went.  What a trip!  I delivered a baby in 2014 and we expanded the shop in 2014.  I d-jayed (I dunno how to spell Dee-jay. Sorry) in a night club and took a train for the first time.  What’s 2015 going to bring?  I do have a few tricks up my sleeve…  For me, 2015 will be the year of my big chop (again).

Family Ties

mom, dad, amd 2/3 brothers.

mom, dad, and 2/3 brothers.

Now that the holidays are pretty much here (my last day is the 23rd) family members and loved ones start to stream into the city in a steady trickle.  I’m sure there are many people headed to the airport this weekend.  Maybe you’re picking up a family member, or getting away for the 25th, the airport is a buzz.  The city is alive and you can feel the energy in the atmosphere change.

Christmas is around the corner and my family and I enjoy it with a good dose of basketball.  I know it’s bizarre but our family tradition does include a good dose of sports.  As 2014 comes to an end, I’m again reminded about how important my relatives are to me. We expanded our family by one this summer as well!  To be able to just unwind, rest, and love all these people makes me feel complete.   I’m excited, I’m grateful and I’m very happy.  Happy holidays to all of you from all of us!

Winter is coming

tumblr_m91x63WYaD1rszhtyo2_500We’re almost there folks.  Almost submerged in the freezer-like winter.  What have you done to prepare yourself for this?  Did you pull out all your winter clothes?  Did you dig out that toque?  I have just purchased some waterproof winter gloves.  This is different for me  because I’m a leather glove kinda lady.  Apart from being a leather glove kinda lady, I also loathe the cold.  The leather, simply isn’t cutting it anymore.  It isn’t warm enough and they stiffen in the extreme cold.
