When I got my first email from Kari - the owner of Glo Antiaging Treatment Bar in Calgary - it already sounded interesting. And after our first phone conversation - I knew there are is a great synergy between us - because we both are passionate about what we do:-)

Those of you who didn't have a chance to read my earlier posts related to Glo - well its a new clinic in Calgary offering wide range of beauty services through one of a kind communication with personalized program targeting client's individuals needs.

When we first met in late July- we had one-on-one consultation after which together with Branda - aesthetician and also co-owner of Glo - we've created customized plan getting my skin ready for our annual big gala - Fashion Calgary Portrait Campaign Gala happening first week of November.
Being a business woman, blogger, stylist and mom - we had to create a plan that would cooperate with my schedule - and we did it:-)
Once every 3/4 weeks I had HydraFacial treatment followed by Venus Viva (face) the following week. These two treatments were chosen to help with the texture of my skin, getting rid of some pigmentation and sun-damaged spots - and just to get my GLOW back.
In the meantime - whenever I had time of course - I was stopping at the clinic for 25minutes lymphatic drainage - after which I felt absolutely amazing - energized - and less "puffy" (as you know ladies how it feels sometimes:-)

The Glo was not only the perfect choice to get customized beauty plan for my skin - but they were also amazing partner&sponsor for our annual campaign and the gala event!
Thank you Kari & Branda for sharing your passion, vision and for trusting me/us in our vision!!!
Absolutely in love with your place!!

The Big Day - 2016 Fashion Calgary Portrait Campaign Gala

Thursday, October 20, 2016


I think most of us- women - loves everything that sparkles - including jewellery and.. diamonds...and although I had a chance to attend many interesting events hosted by worldwide known brands - I think the one I just attended this past Wednesday was definitely one of the most unique ones hosted by Brinkhaus Jewellers in Calgary who partnered with Forevermark and organized The Diamond Journey – an exclusive event to celebrate the Canadian debut of the Forevermark Exceptional Diamond Collection. 

My personal tools - learning about diamonds

Forevermark is the diamond brand from The De Beers Group of Companies with over 125 years of diamond expertise - these diamonds are carefully selected and come from sources committed to very high standards ( only less than one percent of the world’s diamonds are worthy of the Forevermark inscription – an assurance that each diamond is rare and beautiful).

What was really interesting was the fact that I could learn about the craftsmanship of the Forevermark brand as well as having an opportunity to sort of rough diamonds  (with specially prepared kit of tools:-) and of course – trying on jewellery   (my favourite - yellow 23 carats diamond)!

My special ThankYou to Brinkhaus Jewellers & Forevermark for having me being part of this one-of-a kind diamonds journey.

Earlier this year I had a chance to connect with friend of mine-Judy Mikeska who was telling me about this amazing skincare line I should try , called Rodan+Fields.
Its been on the market for some time and I heard about the brand before - but never was a big fan of "those type" of skincare brands. However after seeing some results online - I thought I should give it a try.

After some waiting time for approval from Rodan+Fields head office&marketing team - Judy was able to get me the Reverse 60-day kit to try (I choose Reverse as my skin had lots of sun damage and brown spots-especially because of hormonal changes after having a baby).
Reverse Regimen exfoliates, visibly brightens, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and defends against sun exposure for a long-term solution to get a radiant complexion.

My Rodan+Fields Gift from Judy:-)

The Reverse Regimen features 4 full size products, including Deep Exfoliating Wash, Intensive Brightening Toner, Dual Active Brightening Complex and Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen.
I was very happy with the first use of the line - products are easy to apply and left my skin feeling fresh and smooth.
And after using it for 60 days - I can visibly see the difference - especially with getting rid of the dullness of my skin and getting my glow back!
Now - I am ready to try some more products from Rodan+Fields - already thinking of trying Redefine Overnight Restorative Cream used together with Rodan+Fields AMP MD Roller (that roller micro exfoliates the dead skin providing 35k opportunities for product to access the skin).
