What's New

What are you doing for Earth Month?

April is Earth Month. It always amazes me how dirty everything looks once the snow melts and we start seeing the mess that we left behind, the one the snow so beautifully covered up. It isn’t beautiful now, it’s darn right ugly. What a great time to get out and start cleaning up our neighbourhoods from all of the littler that has settled onto the ground. Each year my kids spend time picking up trash at their school on Earth day- which is officially on Monday April 22.

I took a quiz on Earthday.org to see what my carbon footprint is. Here are some of the things I am going to change this year.

  • I will water one of my plants with left over water/ice from our drinking glasses.
  • I will sweep my sidewalk, driveway, and garage instead of spraying with the garden hose.
  • I will turn the water off while I brush my teeth.
  • I will eat food from local vendors.
  • I will plant a garden.

What will you do?



Is It Ever Going To Be Warm???

Really?  This is the question I keep asking myself when I look out the window or step outside.  I have had enough.  We are seeing clients come in, freshly tanned from the tropical vacations they have taken. Their hair a little lighter, and skin a little darker.  They have been sun-kissed.  How are you all coping with this late cold and blustery weather?  If you have been on a warm vacation, tell us about it.  If you haven’t, tell us how you are coping with this lovely weather.  We would love to help one of our lucky followers get out of the winter doldrums.  Comment and like our post on our Facebook page and we will enter you in a drawing for a $25.00 gift card.

Warmest Regards,

Lori Novak


I don’t know about you, but I am ready for this new season.  Now if we could only push a magic button that would put “Spring” in the air (I would have pushed it a month ago).  Just because the snow is on the ground doesn’t mean that we need to confine ourselves to our Uggs and Wool Sweaters.  Let’s kick winter out, with pointed flats, and sexy high heels. Here’s what we need to get into the spring groove.

For women this season it is all about being feminine.  Soft curls, full bangs that accent our eyes, and brightening up our hair color is a must.  Have your stylist try a new color blocking technique on you- I know you will like what you see!  Look at AVEDA’s limited edition spring collection, bright and vibrant.  We are also seeing lots of corals and gorgeous shades of green, both for make up and in clothing.

Look out April, we are ready for you.
