The following is a special guest post by one of my *favorite* co-workers, Cherry!
Caryl Baker introduces Uptown Girl collection-inspired by hardworking, strong, independent women!
Each selection reflects a city-inspired ‘story’
L’Oréal Paris is rolling out the red carpet at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival!
In addition to being a major sponsor and official beauty partner, L’Oréal Paris is releasing a nine-product limited edition TIFF Festival cosmetics collection (to be released in drugstores and mass retailers across Canada).
I know the title is completely unappealing but hear me out….
I tend to stay on top of my skin care and beauty routine. However due to the recent ‘tidal wave’ of life events, I glanced at my calendar last week to discover my last facial was nearly 6 months ago!
I went straight to my gmail account to access my address book when my eyes happened to fall upon my inbox. And what do I see? August promotions at SITAMAA. I called and made an appointment for the Sunkissed Facial and the Golden Touch (body exfoliation with massage).
This was my very first Aveda facial and I was so pleased. I had a fantastic consultation with my skin therapist and my facial included products that addressed the concerns I had mentioned-hello customized! The products I loved the most were from Aveda’s “Green Science” line. The facial was thorough, enjoyable and included a double cleanse,application of PCA gel (which does tingle by the way) toning, masque, extractions, facial massage, moisturizing, and application of sunscreen-not in that order!
The body exfoliation was wonderful as well. I really needed a good thorough scrub down. A 30-minute massage afterwards (with warm oil) was a definite bonus. I had my therapist work on my back. Goodbye stressful work week (or stressful work month….did I mention my company is up for sale? Can we say anxiety?)
Now, I don’t like to throw the ‘G’ word around-glowing that is, but I have to say my face is looking mighty angelic these days. Overall, my skin feels so clean and light. These 2 treatments were exactly what I needed, when I needed them!
If you are in Toronto, and feel like indulging, you should give SITAMAA a try!

*I paid for these treatments and the opinions are my own, whether you like them or not!*
It’s no secret that I love being blonde. Being blonde doesn’t come easy OR inexpensive-it requires upkeep and adherence to a pretty tight maintenance schedule. When I don’t take care of my hair, it shows-almost immediately.
Decorating has always escaped me…..and now that I’ve moved into my first home, it’s time to do a little home decor 101!
Sunday IS a fun day when you get your nails done and have a LOT of new products to talk about!
and it went a little something like this:
