My Olistika Experience

Do you see yourself as a person who is not afraid to try new experiences? 
Do you look at things with an open mind? 
If you answered yes to these questions, you should try Olistika. 

What is Olistika?
A new concept wellness centre (Toronto, Ontario) that combines aromatherapy, reflexology & reiki to deeply but gently balance you mentally, emotionally and physically.
Back in December, I had the opportunity to try a session. I won't lie, I was nervous. But I was really interested in seeing what it's all about. This non-­invasive technique energizes you using  a combination of Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Reiki. It's completely natural. My session was conducted by Filippo Conte- owner of Olistika. He made sure that he explained everything to me in advance before we got started. The most important thing is that he made me feel at ease. The whole concept of accessing your ‘holistic toolkit’ was something totally foreign to me.

What happened in the session?
It was a combination of Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Reiki. Coolest part was that I able to pick my own blends for aromatherapy. Filippo customized it and got it right on the first try. I should add that these essential oils are 100% vegan. The reflexology part was very calming. It involves your feet, hands and head. The main point of reflexology is to get you to relax and on the path of healing. Did you know that points on your feet, hands and head link to different parts in your body? Lastly, the star of the show- Reiki. It is "a natural hands-on energy healing technique that deeply but gently balances you mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually by releasing blockages you carry, removing obstacles and restoring your depleted life force energy." I swear after my session, I felt EXTREMELY peaceful and re-energized!

I also left with three lovely products that I use daily:

Olistika MIST Lavender- Spray
Since I have bad sinus issues, I usually mist it in my face. But it can also be a room spray, sprayed on your pillow (to aid sleep) or on your body. Did you know that lavender is antiseptic, bactericidal, anti-fungal and a anti-inflammatory?

Olistika SPECIAL BLEND Healer- Drops
This is amazing on wounds/scrapes. Just apply one to five drops: "the goal is to apply gently, to cover the entire wound and surrounding area (to .5-1" around), to leave a light (dry) sheen of oil on the surface of the skin". It's important to apply two or three times daily.

Olistika SKIN BODY BLEND Winter- Rollerball
You can apply this lightly on skin your face. My favourite place is under the nose. It can also be placed behind the ears, temples or wrists. Apply day or night.

If you're in Toronto, I'd recommend that you visit Olistika for a unique experience.

Introducing ArteStile!

Are you looking for a super cute set of tweezers? I have the perfect brand for you!
Try ArteStile!
ArteStile professional beauty tools are uniquely designed with a patented baked enamel finish for an exceptional in-hand feel. Professional nail Trims, Files, Scissors, and Tweezers are hand-crafted in Italy of the finest stainless steel. The tips and blades are perfectly aligned and hand-filed for lasting performance. 
I'm embarrassed to say this but I'm a tweezer junkie. I constantly buy them and lose them! Some days I have five and others I can't find any. I'm always looking for one that is durable with a nice grip. I have very thick hairs and those dollar store tweezers don't help.

Now these products are exactly what I was looking for!

I love the fact that Artestile is a Canadian Company!
They are also free of lead & nickel.

I'm so happy that this set came in a bright red pouch. It will be really hard to lose this. As long as I remember to put these back in the pouch when I'm done, I will have no issue!
*Fingers Crossed*
Overall great design & product!
Each item is $24.97

Social Butterfly ManeTeeze by T&M Review

Don't you hate the fact that your hair "soaks" up smells like a sponge! Nothing is worse that leaving the house and fearing that everyone smells that curry chicken that your mother just cooked. Haha- I know I can't be the only one who thinks that everyone can smell it.

Now that I'm older, I appreciate a product like Mane teeze.
Mane Teeze by T&M Hair Perfumes aim to freshen your hair, invigorate your spirit and unlock your inner diva at any hour of the day. Delicious scents with a higher concentrate than average perfumes adds a long lasting fresh flavour to your hair for up to 12 hours.
Social Butterfly gives off a sweet vanilla scent. I like the fact that the scent is not over powering. If you don't like vanilla scented products there are two other options: Black Widow & Haut Mess. Haut Mess is actually my favorite because it's chocolate and caramel scented.

In a fashionable 50ml glass bottle, Mane Teeze by T&M Hair Perfumes can conveniently be toted around in your gym bag, purse or clutch.

I like the bottle but I wish that they had a travel- sized option. Recently, I went to a BBQ and got the unfortunate seat beside the BBQ. My hair smelled like hamburgers & chicken! Before I left to go to another venue I lightly misted my hair. Since I had a huge bag, sticking it in there was no problem.

If I had my mini over the shoulder bag, I wouldn't have been able to fit it in there. I could probably transfer some to my mini atomizer.

You have two options to purchase ManeTeeze: Online or at a Blo Blow Dry Bar.

How do you deal with hair "odors" other than washing your hair?

Check out GlossyBox Canada!

My Glossybox Canada Ambassador Kit

Beauty boxes are taking over! The most recent box to enter Canada is GlossyBox. I remember drooling over the UK boxes and awaiting their arrival here.

GlossyBox is similar to other boxes:
  • Stay up to date with current trends/discover new brands.
  • Free delivery.
  • Five exciting product samples each month.
It differs with:
  • $15 a month price tag.
Overall, I noticed that this box is the highest priced out there (in Canada) but after looking at what you can get in the box I totally know why.

For example: Full-sized items such as WELLA Ocean Spritz in the June box retails for $16.99 and Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55 is $15.99. One item basically covers the price of the box. Consider the other four items a bonus!

The idea of a 6th surprise item in your box is a great deal as well.

If you love trying out new products and you're on a budget, I would recommend this box. I also want to add that you can cancel your GLOSSYBOX subscription at any time within 14 days prior to delivery. I hate putting stuff like that out there but I have had a bad experience with an American box and  it's good to know your opinions. Whether or not you use it..
