STUFF I'M LOVING!
One of the roles of a Style Coach TM is to search out great products and advise others how well they work. I will be adding items regularly as I scope them out so check back often and try them for yourself!
AVEDA brilliant TM Medium Hold Hairspray is truly a treat for the senses! Whoever thought a hairspray could smell this amazing? Never mind it's great holding ability, I spray it on to breathe in the aromatic extracts of jasmine, rose, certified organic ylang ylang and other pure flower and plant essences. Get it at salons that carry Aveda products or online.
Essante Organics is an amazing company based in Phoenix, AZ that prides itself on providing clean, non-toxic products ranging from essential oils to health supplements to green household cleaning products. One of my favorite products is their anti-aging liquid hand soap called Hand Candy, made with pure, USDA Certified Organic essential oils, white tea leaf extract, coconut oil, verbena leaf extract, passion fruit seed oil and many other amazing things from nature. I love all the anti-aging botanicals that moisturize your hands as you clean. Truly a winner in my books and you will probably feel the same.

Eminence Organic Skin Care is one of my favorite skincare lines. It is an amazingly nutrient-rich line of skincare from Hungary sold in upscale spas all over the world. The Firm Skin Acai Cleanser is one of my favorite products because it is anti-aging and smells amazing. The acai berries, blueberries and raspberries account for it's great scent. Acai berries and blueberries are a rich source of antioxidants that refine your skin resulting in a smooth, glowing complexion. Seabuckthorn promotes elasticity and botanical hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps fine lines and wrinkles. Cleaning my face at the end of the day is something I actually look forward to now! Search online for spas in your area that carry Eminence products, or order it from online distributors.
If you're a fan of shower gels, you have to try THALGO Marine Shower Gel! This is the 'creme de la creme' of shower gels, no question. It's energizing, intoxicating, invigorating and smells amazing! I know I've said this before but it's true. The scent will rock you. Literally. It's a staple in my bath area and the only one I buy. It's divine. Thalgo products are sometimes difficult to find but Spasation Spa's in your area might carry it. If you can't find it locally, definitely search for it online.
I have used almost every nail polish brand from drugstores to spa's but could never find a long-wearing formula that actually worked until now. My boss recently turned me on to Morgan Taylor, a brand I'd never come across before. I purchased a few bottles and I'm so glad I splurged! Morgan Taylor has a higher price point but is well worth the extra coin. I noticed the difference in the quality of the formulation right away. It glided smoothly over my nails and looked like a specialty manicure only a spa could duplicate. It also didn't smell as pungent as a lot of other formulations. Thank you Debbie for the tip! I'm officially hooked! Morgan Taylor is the nail polish brand I will encourage everyone to try from now on.
If you ever find yourself in Edmonton, Canada make sure you stop into Nu2You Consignment Boutique at 7510 Gateway Boulevard. Here is where I found this beautiful Rebecca Minkoff large almond leather Nikki hobo bag. As you can see, it was in mint condition when I purchased it. The original retail price was $495.00 but I only paid $100.00. Everything in this amazing shop is in like new condition as all goods received from consignors are inspected by a minimum of three people. One of the first things you will notice when you walk through the door are all the bright hues on the beautifully organized shop floor. The customer service here is excellent and the staff are ultra friendly. Definitely add this boutique to your shopping excursions while in the area!
