A Little ‘Me Time’ With Aveda

In Beauty, Fashion, Lifestyle, Local by wR23Fs2Sqi52 Comments

You guys, there’s nothing more that I love than taking a little ‘me time’ but I have to admit lately, life has been too busy for any ‘me time’. So the other week, I decided enough was enough, it’s time to recharge my batteries. And I did just that at Aveda Institute Canada in Winnipeg, located in the heart of the Exchange District.

Time to get glam with my stylist Ali, who is just a gem and so much fun. We talked about my day-to-day style and she went over a few Aveda products that would be beneficial for me to use. Like Air Control™ hair spray which creates a flexible, lasting hold without the yucky stiffness or crispiness of regular hairspray. This is perfect for me because I often like to style my hair with loose, soft curls/waves and this product helps to hold and maintain them for a couple of days. And that’s exactly what Ali gave me, nice big soft curls that lasted for several days. Oh and did I mention the amazing scalp massage you get with all services, unless of course you’re getting a color treatment.

Next stop was with Dorothy, who worked her magic on my face. I mentioned to her that the dry winter weather was really taking its toll on my skin and she quickly suggested some products that would help ease my concerns. I love that their products, ranging from skin care to hair care, are as organic as possible and that Aveda continually strives to increase their naturally derived ingredients.

And of course, I had to take home some of the wonderful products they used on me. One of my favourites is the Tourmaline Charged Hydrating Creme , it’s so nourishing for dry skin.

What can I say, it was an afternoon of pure bliss with my stylist Ali and make up artist Dorothy. I’m truly impressed by Aveda, from the products to the staff and their mission, my experience was amazing. I left there feeling truly refreshed. I highly recommend you check out Aveda in your city.

Our mission at Aveda is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society.

At Aveda, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.

How do you recharge?

Have a great week guys!

  3. Aint nothing wrong with a bit of ‘me’ time..good on you to get replenished during these harsh winter months, our beauty regimes is so important during these times, and I’m constantly looking for ways to put the hmph back into my skin…I’ll be sure to check out on Aveda products. Hope you are still feeling your glow! Have a gd wk hon! ( :

  4. Definitely looks and sounds like you had a great time. I’ll have to look into those products you mentioned because I suffer from dry skin during the cooler months too. However, it’s good you were able to steal some me time. That’s soooo important in this day and age of all work and no sleep. I love cinema. Massages. Shopping of course. Those are the 3 ways I keep my sanity in check. Have a great weekend beautiful lady.
