From October 20nd to October 30th you can chose from packages that are available in three categories for both men & women:
  • Salon
  • Spa/Medi-Spa
  • Health and Wellness
This week, I had the opportunity to visit Deco De Mode- Beauty Bar for a Beautylicious promo.
It's such a lovely space on Scollard St.


I got the $50 Gel Toe Pedicure deal.
Ladies- Just because it's Fall that's doesn't mean that we have to neglect our feet. Plus it's gel so I know that it will last longer. I used OPI gel Red.


My first impression of Deco de Mode was that it was super clean and swanky!
I loved the comfortable pedicure chairs & decor. There are three main services that you can get here: Waxing/Threading, Nails & Lashes. I'm totally excited to go back and try their lashes service.

Cards based on your personality from Socialcirclecards

How many times have you gone out and forgotten your business cards. Or met someone influential totally by fluke and didn't have a card to give to them. What about this... Have you gone to an event- hit it off with the head of the company they asked for a card and you have nothing to give them. This has happened to me quite a few times.

For me, business cards are something that I never remember to bring with me. I usually keep a few(3) in my wallet but once they all get used up, I always forget to replenish. I recently had the opportunity to get some really cute cards done by socialcirclecards. These are networking for the trendy. These little card contain all of your social networking handles. Each card can hold five social media contacts. You get your name in the middle surrounded by your email, cell, facebook and instagram deets.

I was attracted to these cards because they're really unique and eye catching.
There are eight different categories to choose from:
  • artsy
  • bohemian
  • classic
  • edgy
  • glam
  • preppy
  • trendy
  • business cards
I went with Olivia ($34.95 CDN) because I felt like it was best suited to my personality.
With my order I received:
  • 2" scalloped-matte stock-double sided customized cards with my info
  • Personalized case wish I love!

This idea is extremely smart because you can clip it to the outside your bag or keep it in your purse. Also within seconds after handing out my card I always get compliments on how cute and different they are.

Dermablend Professional is now in Canada!

As a makeup artist, one product which I would see in a lot of kits was Dermablend. I had the opportunity to attend an exclusive launch of Dermablend in Canada! Starting on October 8th, they are now sold exclusively in drugstores.


If you don't know anything about them please know that they're the #1 Dermatologist recommended camouflage brand in the US. Also known for their high pigment content and blendability.


They have been around for over 35 years changing lives by addressing all skin concerns:
  • redness
  • dark circles
  • uneven complexion
  • vitiligo
  • rosacea
  • tattoos
  • scars
  • acne

Even if you don't have any of these issues. This is for anyone who desires full coverage. Brides who have a problem with their makeup running would really benefit from using this product. The line features a good range of powders, foundations and concealers. FYI I'm in one of darkest shades in the line- Cinnamon.  Not sure if this is for you? Think about it this way.. It's dermatologist tested, allergy tested, sensitive skin tested, non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic and fragrance-free. 
In other words.. you need to get your hands on this ASAP!

NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm LUXE & HAVEN

I love NUDESTIX! Their Eyebrow Stylus Pencil & Gel is the ONLY product that I've been using straight for a YEAR! Or their Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencils - which have become a staple in my makeup kit because they show up so beautifully on a camera. A lot of people are branching out pf their matte obsession and are trying out products that are more hydrating.  But I currently need products for my clients who prefer more of a natural lip look.

Welcome NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm ($28.00 CAN).

What's the key word to describe these:
MOISTURIZING

LUXE & HAVEN
Layer it on for more colour and shine.
Shine without the stickiness.

SWATCH

Containing rapeseed, vitamin E, cotton seed, soybean and sunflower oil.
