Hair Painting at Medulla & Co.

Categories: Beauty

My friends at Hair on the Avenue (salon in Yorkville) recently opened a second location with an entirely new concept, called Medulla & Co. on trendy Queen Street West. This lovely new salon/retail space offers luxury hair services free of harsh chemicals as well as a unique collection of lifestyle products and accessories. Owner and Lead Colourist, Luis Pacheco shares his time between both salons – I needed a touch-up on my my ombre so I decided to visit the new spot!

TD Automated Thanking Machine

Categories: Lifestyle

Card in, cash out – for many it’s business as usual at the traditional ATM, but, recently, for some TD customers it was anything but.

Looking for a unique way to express its gratitude to customers, TD decided to turn to local TD branch employees for ideas. Local employees tend to know their customers pretty well, including their aspirations and dreams over the years. With the help of these employees, and an Automated Thanking Machine, some customers received a very special and meaningful thank you.

A just released video, entitled #TDThanksYou, captures the unexpected and very personal way TD thanked its customers. Watch as TD takes an Automated Thanking Machine, some excited employees and unsuspecting customers, a handful of beloved celebrities, really special gifts and the element of surprise to create an experience customers and employees will never forget.

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Salt Spray

Categories: Beauty,Haircare

I don’t know about you, but when summer humidity arrives, I have a hard time keeping my hair straight and I don’t want to use hot tools everyday. As we spend our weekends at the cottage or the beach, quick and simple hair solutions come in handy. I know it’s easy to throw my hair up on a hot summer day, but I prefer textured, beachy waves. Alas, we don’t all have an ocean at our disposal to get that effortlessly textured look, but Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Session Label Salt Spray makes it easy to achieve the desired effect at home.

I always thought that salt sprays should only be used on wet hair, but you can actually use it on dry hair to create beachy waves too. I find it easier to shape or scrunch my hair to the level of wavy that I prefer when it’s damp, but using it on dry hair creates a softer, matte finish.

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Session Label Salt Spray provides just enough manageability for that imperfectly tousled look and it actually makes my hair feel thicker and fuller too!

Stylists love using this product to create texture and grip for various styles, especially updos because it creates volume without that sticky residue that other styling products leave behind.

You can buy Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Session Label Salt Spray at various salons – find one near you using the Salon Finder online and rock those beachy waves this summer!

MINKPINK Southwestern Sundress

Categories: Fashion

I don’t consider myself a country girl, but I knew I had to come up with something for the Calgary Stampede earlier this month. I didn’t want to go full western with plaid and denim cut-offs, but I wanted to add a little country to my own dainty style. This MINKPINK southwestern sundress has the perfect amount of country charm with a subtle Navajo print.
