The Freshest Ladies

DSCN0583The salon has went through, and is going through, changes.  We have expanded, I had a baby, we’ll be hiring for two positions… It’s been a while since I had posted anything and it’s funny how much I missed writing.

IMG_0168There was so much that I thought I would want to say for this first entry back, but I think I just want to thank the ladies I work with.  They have all played a very important role in their own ways during the past two months.

DSCN0580I’m grateful that I work with women who understand the type of business I want to run and they do what they can to enhance the experience for all the clients.  I appreciate each and every one of these ladies and I know that all the goodness and changes that Freshair Boutique has went through wouldn’t have been possible without these 7 ladies.

Christie, **Chloe, Amy, **Heather, Andrée, **Tessa and **Olivia, thanks girls!  That’s the fresh perspective…

Flowers in your hair

IMG_3528

With weddings, grads and a butt load of summer functions coming up, flowers are a natural way to change it up!  You can pin one in on the side, or fashion a nifty crown.  Any floral accent will translate to so much more.

For crowns, you’ll need thin long stemmed wild flowers that are pliable and easy to twist up.  Bits of twigs and berries are a nice touch as well.  The type of event will dictate the type of flower to use to help accentuate your look.  You may not wear a flower crown as a guest to a wedding, but maybe at a gathering at the lake…  A cluster of roses may work nice in an up do for grad, but not as well to a baby shower…

The type of hair you have will also help you make a decision as to what plant you would place in your hair.  As simple as it is, it’s that simple!  Light haired ladies need light weight flowers. Thick haired gals can wear any type because thicker hair can support a thicker or sturdier flower (as well as lighter types).   As you guessed, I would advise you to chat with your stylist about some fun things you could do with your hair this upcoming summer season.  Check out oak & lily sometime and see what they might recommend.  Give it a try, that’s the fresh perspective…

WHO’S ON YOUR TEAM?

Being that it is the New Year, we all take the time to reflect.  We reflect on our weight, we reflect on our love lives, we reflect on our families and friends.  Basically, now is when we attempt to give our lives a total over-haul.

All of this New Year’s stuff got me to thinking about my friends, or more-so, the ladies in my life.  I am very fortunate (some may say I’m lucky) to come to work every day and spend time with the gals on my team.  It’s no secret that I love sports because I think it mirrors so many parts and aspects of life.  Winning and/or losing.  Practices, coaches, and meetings… The success or failure of teams strictly rely on the players, or the group that the team consists of.

Chloe Hodgson, Andrée Lavergne, Pascale Forest-Axford, Renée Girard, Amy Zacharias, Rochelle Senior and Christie Peters (in no particular order) play on my team and I think we have the best starting line-up.  I’m of course biased, but if any of you got to spend time with any of these women you would be changed.  They all have an easy ability to be themselves and appreciate it.  They all have a sense of what it means to be a part of something. They all know the meaning of love.  They all have been to work with little to no make-up on…

Without even knowing it, they make me want to be better.  Without even knowing it, they make me believe that I am already a part of something.  Without even knowing it, they have softened my heart.  They know now.

Who’s on your team?  Do the people that surround you daily, have a way of making you see that there is beauty around, always?  Do the people you hold close have a way of making you stand up? Tall?  Do the people you love know that you love them…?

While you’re evaluating how many pounds to lose, or how you can be more efficient, ask yourself…  That’s the fresh perspective…

Team Freshair, you are loved.

Found this picture today.  It’s one of us at the holiday lunch I had at my place.  What’s up with my face?  Anyways… We take so much for granted and I never want to forget how fortunate I am, and how much love is in my life.  Thanks girls for being the best co-workers!

Peace
