Photo Finish

I have always envied those women who have flawless skin.  Not the women who seemingly have taken cosmetic application classes and can beautifully apply the exact amount of makeup to provide the coverage of a clown face, and yet not look like a clown. There is a definite art to that as well, but what I am talking about are the women, who without makeup, have beautiful skin.

In the naivety of my youth, I believed it was just something you were born with (or without). Gene Pool Winners. Gene Pool Losers. As I have grown older, I have discovered that indeed there are ways to drastically improve the results of the genes we have been given. You can take great care of your skin by drinking lots of water, using sunscreen, etc.

But, another way to have a naturally improved skin tone and luminosity is to get regular facials.  If you haven’t had a chance to indulge in one, today’s deal is your chance. Get your voucher for a IPL Skin Rejuvenation Photofacial combined with a Microdermabrasion Facial at Laser Bëauty Co. and give yourself the gift of beautiful skin.

Bring your Memories to Life

The advent of the digital camera has changed the face of photography forever.

My kids wonder why we took so many pictures with our eyes closed back in the 70’s. The explanation (which won’t include the phrase LSD) will take some time…

We only had rolls of film, some with as little as 12 exposures.  You had to take pictures sparingly, and only found out how the photos looked once the whole roll was finished, which, depending on the amount of pictures a person liked to take could be months into the future. Once the roll was full it got “sent away” to a lab and after about a week you got the packet of pictures back, at which point you could check to see if your eyes were open in the picture.

So, for example, if your birthday was in July and your Mom didn’t finish the roll until she captured you in your Halloween costume, you would find out in early November if your eyes were open in the photos of your 10th birthday party, or even if there was a finger in front of the lens. Or, if God forbid, someone had opened the back of the camera and let light in. Then, you got back absolutely nothing. The super thin packet was surely a sign of doomed film. You could hope that someone else may have gotten a couple shots, or you better have a good memory. Little too late for a do-over by that point.

Enter, digital photos. Now, like so many other areas of our lives, we can get instantaneous feedback on how we are doing. We can see right away if the light was bad, if the flash didn’t work, if the head got cut off or if Joker Jo has decided that bunny ears would be the most hilarious gag ever.  We can even bribe the kids into getting a great shot. “If we get a great one, you can do a super crazy goofy shot too!”

So, with regards to today’s deal, you can now shoot pictures to you hearts content, and when you finally get the best photos you have ever seen in your life, (and you will know right away!) you can make them into a book of art. The folks at Photobook Canada can take your photos and make a photobook that you will actually look at and it will remind you that you have yet another talent.  Taking pictures with eyes wide open!

Lash Out

You know there is a whole world out there I know nothing about, and I believe having the humility to admit it is the first step in gaining knowledge. I mean, how much luck have you had enlightening a person who “knows it all” already.  I know the answer…”Not much”.   BTW that is not me being a know it all, it just so happens I Know That!

Anyway, in looking around the web for inspiration for this entry I stumbled across this post about famous (and legendary) beauties who shaved…their faces. Who knew?  (Turns out I know the answer to that as well.  Not ME).  Well, I am not going to judge, but let me say this, I have enough other things to deal with, so I for one can be counted out in terms of adding this to my regime.  At least until men routinely shave their legs.

Anyway, this all started because today’s deal is for those of us who are looking to streamline our beauty routines. Right now you can get a great deal on eyelash extensions at Cutis Cura in Maple Ridge.  Imagine waking up every day with lashes that look completely natural, but are long and lush.  Forget mascara and the accompanying clumps.

Plus the time you shave off your morning make up routine can be used for something else.  Like shaving your face, if you are so inclined.

The Perfect Foil

In literature a foil is a pair of characters whose differences illuminate the important characteristics in each other. Think Jekyll and Hyde, or Othello and Iago, or if you are of a younger mindset,  Donald Duck to Mickey Mouse.  In any event, the set up is such that you see the differences in order to enhance the main story.

Now, I realize that when a hair salon is referring to foils, they generally mean it in the literal sense.  They will use actual foils to separate your hair and create colour enhancements.  However, in the literary sense, the foils do indeed create a contrast that causes us to see a change in the entire style and look of your hair.

So, today’s deal is the perfect foil to drab, outdated and plain colour. The professional stylists at Highland Salon & Medi Spa can use foil to create the perfect foil.

Eyes are the Window

It has been said that the eyes are the window to the soul, which is the reason we ask people to look at us while speaking to help determine if they are telling the truth.  Well, the truth is that our eyes are expressive and as the frame to your eyes, your eyebrows and eyelashes play a part in the show.

So, today’s deal for a professional eyebrow threading or waxing at Dadi’s Beauty Salon is just the thing to make sure that your eyes are expressing what you think they are.  Honest.
