THE TRUTH BEHIND ITWORKS!! - MY FIRST 30-DAY JOURNEY!!




Those of you who are following me on social media and checking my blog regularly - know that I have been trying selected products from ItWorks! the last month.
I actually had a chance to get introduce to the brand right after my son was born-trying their amazing wraps (my sincere ThankYou to Tanya Valk!) but just recently I've seen results of people using selected products for 30/60/90-day challenge - and I was amazed by their results!


Last month I've had a chance to meet such a lovely person - Shayba Lee Kennedy - who I partnered with to go on a journey with ItWorks! again trying their Greens, Thermofit, Formula FF and Defining Gel!
I really like the products - and thought I would share my results(picture was taken this morning!) but I think it would be even better if I would implement their amazing body wraps - so stay tuned as we are going to continue my journey for the next 30 days - and we will be adding their crazy amazing wraps:-)

For more information about products and more info - please contact Shayna directly!
She is amazing!

BEAUTIFUL FEYA CANDLES ARE MAKING A CHANGE IN THE WORLD!!






Just recently I've had a chance to discover new company called Feya Candle Company thanks to power of social media. Because I love fragrances and candles - I was inspired while browsing their Instagram pictures and thought that it would be great to learn more about the brand as well as to check their candles!!




Feya Candle Company first began as a big dream to change the world.  Founder - Sarah Mullins wanted to honor the legacy of her Grandmother and Aunt who helped raise her and chose to name the company after them. 
 With a knowledge of candles and having ran a retail storefront for 3 years, Feya was launched as a nationwide wholesale-only company with a mission of delivering a meal to a child in need for every candle sold. 

 Available in boutique shops in over 20 states, Feya then expanded to online retail sales so anyone, anywhere is able to purchase a candle and help change the world.  They have hand delivered meals to impoverished communities in Haiti & Nicaragua, as well as City Missions all over the United States.  
What is so important - they hand deliver so they can guarantee the money is being used for food and they can personally make a difference by meeting the families and working in the communities. I am amazed by the number of meals they have been able to deliver so far: 12,417!!!

Feya Candles are 100% soy candles with all natural wicks, available in 12 fragrances.  
The benefit of soy candles is a longer burn time (approx 50 hours per candle), cleaner burn (no black soot or smoke) and a stronger fragrance.  












My sincere ThankYou note to Feya Candle team for sending me a gift of their TOP4 Best-Sellers, including Sage&Lemongrass, French Vanilla&Amber, Sandalwood and Pear Spice!!
My house is going to smell so beautifully this summer!!!

And to all of You who love candles as much as I do - together with Feya Candle Company - we've created special PROMO CODE to receive Your 10% OFF your online purchase when you use the following code:  FASHIONCALGARY

Happy Shopping:-)

NEW SHOPPING DESTINATION IN ASPEN/CALGARY - WELCOME TO HOUSE OF LALEH!!!



Last week I've been invited for the preview of new boutique located in Aspen community, in Calgary, called Boutique Laleh. They've had their Grand Opening happening last Saturday but I wanted to share the excitement in advance:-)

Boutique Laleh (meaning "The house of Flowers") is an upscale women's clothing boutique owned and operated by Samantha Nyakudya, that carries Ready-to-Wear (RTW) designer and casual/contemporary apparel & accessories for women. In addition, you will also find designs created by the store owner - Samantha - called The House of Laleh INC. When it comes to brands selection - you will find it very interesting for sure - as the boutique carries brands from LA, UK , such as  LA LUX, Hera, Caribbean  Queen and to name a few.



What I found very interesting about the place is the concept itself - the boutique owner - Samantha- wanted to open an exclusive space that is almost like a personal closet where you can just walk in, find something you love and leave happy with something unique. The energy in the place is very relaxed and comfortable for sure!! (plus after seeing all the clothing and accessories selection - you won't like to leave!).






Boutique Laleh provides services such as Style Assessments, personal shopping, and special ordering to customers during store hours and by personal appointments. Boutique Laleh’s innovative Style Assessments and educational emphasis in helping women develop their personal styles will definitely enhance the store reputation as a truly unique boutique in #YYC!!

Excited for the Grand Opening(after some shopping:-)

To learn more about the Boutique Laleh- check the brand on Social Media, including their Instagram profile at: Boutique Laleh : Houseoflaleh as well as their Facebook page.

TRUTH ABOUT "ItWorks!" - MY PERSONAL JOURNEY!!!



OK - so...some of you probably heard about brand called It Works!- and one of their most popular product- wraps!! But for those of you who haven't had a chance to hear about it - well-I've decided to share with you some information about the brand, their products - and...my 30-day journey - sharing my honest opinion about products I - together with Shayna - chose to achieve my goal!!


As a new mom (well - Baby Olivier is already 16 months - I cannot believe how time flies!) two of my biggest concerns are absolutely my "after-baby" body as well as hair&nails!
With my busy lifestyle - being a mom, working full time, working out and some other things - one of the hardest things is sometimes achieving this "last step"goal.

Although I am happy about my body -there are few things that I really would like to improve - especially tightening the skin around my belly, arms as well as getting healthier hair&nails (unfortunately I am still loosing lots of hair and my nails became very weak) - I've decided to test few products during the next 30 days!





I am going to test: Berry Greens, Ultimate Thermofit & Formula FF, Defining Gel as well as Hair Skin Nails treatment!!
Berry Greens are packed with nutrients and antioxidants 

Made of 38 different herbs, vegetables, and nutrient-rich superfoods. The variety of plants and nutrients in this jar is MUCH greater than what most people would be able to find, buy, prepare, and eat. Not only that, but with each tiny scoop (or two) you get more than 8 servings of fruits and vegetables.
The Greens can help detoxify your cells, which makes them a great supplement to take in combination with a weight-loss program or the It Works! skinny wrap. Not only that, but the plants found in Greens have an alkalizing effect on your body. If you’re unfamiliar with what is in greens, check out my detailed post about the subject by clicking here.

Ultimate Thermofit - Helps boost metabolic rate with the power of hot peppers, promotes increased calorie burning as well as having antioxidant benefits of acai berry. 
The Formula FF - absorb about one third of the fat and oil and help balance your blood sugar spikes that promote fat storage. It blocks some of the fat & carbs from meals , helps balance healthy blood glucose level and reduce cravings. It is designed to be taken up to an hour after meals

Defining Gel - improves skin firmness and helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite, loose skin, stretch marks, and varicose veins. It deeply hydrates, softens, firms, smooths and tightens to give you more youthful looking skin all over your body. The ingredients promote… Lipolysis. This literally means “fat-breaking”. The plant extracts and botanicals get into the fat cell and chop up the large fat molecules into little ones, which are now allowed to leave the cell. They are then burned up as energy somewhere else in the body, which is one reason why we want you to be well hydrated while you are using the applicators. This will help circulate the little fat molecules that are being released. This is HUGE and very important to know because the applicators (Body Wraps) are literally promoting FAT LOSS during this process!

STAY TUNED - as I am going to share with you my results after 30-day experiment with ItWorks! products!

But if you have any questions about the products, about the brand - or if you would like to try them yourself - make sure to contact Shayna Lee Kennedy - in Calgary - through her website here
