Last Wednesday we were on and poppin' at our new Toronto location in Trinity Bellwoods, we're one block south of the HOTTEST area's of the city. When Steph from BlushPretty suggested we needed a larger location we quickly (like in seconds) totally agreed with her. She and Elaine searched the city for an addy deserving of our beautiful client base, there were a few losers to say the least. But then the email came through with a Trinity Bellwoods address - 777 Richmond St West. We share the GORGEOUS space with The BlushPretty team, with 2 entrance doors both businesses can operate within the studio. Lovely Lashing Lynda originally trained and working out of the FCL Burlington location at 520 Guelph Line will be working her magic out of the FCL Toronto space. We're super proud of Lynda, she has grown into a true lash professional and decided that this shop is just the right location to showcase her talent. If you're looking to get lashy with it, give us a holler 1.855.721.7108 or book online.
I'm not going to front, my skin in my 30's is like an alien on my face. It feels different, looks like someone I used to know and has become difficult to get along with. I've been pretty lucky in skin department and although I use good products - I've never really thought much about skin treatments. Then I turned 30 and skin treatments went from the back to the front of my mind. This is where Stephanie Daga skin guru and founder of Fresh Beautiful - The Skin Studio comes in . . . or rather comes to the rescue. My skin was SUPER dry and not so nice to the touch so we went with the Preserve + Nurture combination. First the skin was cleansed and then we got to the good stuff - CRYSTAL MICRODERMABRASION. Sloughing away the dry layer of skin first - we did 2 passes over the skin. I was expecting it to feel like sand paper but it didn't feel like that at all. Next step was a cooling hydrating mask that felt like it was sent from heaven. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better - the cold therapy part started. I swear my skin opened right up to let the goodness in - my face was tingling and if I didn't know better I think I was already producing much needed collagen. Making sure to follow instructions - leave your face make-up free until tomorrow, stay away from sunlight unless wearing a good block and don't touch your face ( this one was not my fav . . . my skin was so glowy I wanted to run my fingers all over it !). The next day I woke up and stumbled over to the mirror - my fiancee looks over at me and says "wow you must have had a great sleep, you look so rested". After biting my tongue and NOT saying "So every other morning I look like a hag ?", I thought he was right my skin looked plump and the red around my nose and chin were gone. I sat down to start the daily application of foundation etc and after reviewing my face I decided a little bronzer and blush was all that was needed. Thats right people - I left my house without concealer or foundation, call the papers and hire the marching band. Here's the straight good ladies - there's no point in spending a bundle on expensive creams if it isn't getting to the layers of skin that need it. Also give this a whirl before drilling and filling - frozen faces are not hot. Fresh Beautiful - The Skin Studio will deliver . . . hands down, ask my gorgeous skin !

Just in case you were wondering weddings are not the only time of the year to appear flawless. I had a MAJOR need of flawless in August when Flirt Custom Lash Studio celebrated it's one year anniversary. There was only one person to call . . . Lindsay Daw from Dawlface Makeup Artistry. In she came ON TIME and PREPARED for a total overhaul - I felt bad for her. After asking some important questions I didn't even think about like : what are you wearing ? What colour are your shoes ? (GAWD I love this lady !), are we going for glam or subtle ? After mixing, testing and double checking in the light - I was HOT !!!! if I do say so myself. I received a TON of compliments that night and really Lindsay was the one that deserved them. Because sharing is caring I now present to you Dawlface MakeUp Artistry - don't say I never gave you anything !
