WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS

“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Fortunately this news is too exciting not to break the code. My partners and I attended The Spa Conference in Las Vegas, which is the holy grail of all spa shows. Over 21,000 people attend and the show had over 600 vendors from around the world. Everyone in the beauty industry should experience this show at least once. The objective of IX SPA BAR is to find innovative niche products, and did we ever! We met a gentlemen, let’s call him James Bond and we were introduced to a prototype of a breakthrough beauty product! Unfortunately, we can’t go in details just yet, but I’ll say this my friends… STAY TUNED!

Anti Aging Face Oils

Anti Aging Face Oils

Volcanic Essential Oils by Essentials Bali were founded in 1992 by Ms. Maureen A. Treacy. The Volcanic Essential Oils were created after Ms. Treacy suffered burn injuries and unsuccessfully tried many remedies to heal her skin. As a result, the Australian native created her own products of organic, all natural blended essential oils which are harvested in volcanic soil. This amazing creation is a top seller at the Four Seasons Hotels in the UK and Malaysia; it has also won numerous awards including Spa Product of the Year. IX SPA BAR has now introduced these nourishing and healing organic face and eye oils into Canada. IX SPA BAR has also paired these organic plant extracts with the Volcanic Ash Mask to bring you an innovative new spa treatment. Click HERE for more information.

Volcanic Ash Mask

Volcanic Ash Mask

I often enjoy going to spas to experience new treatments that are being offered, and to get some R&R. When I visit the spas, the “go to” treatments I always seek out are facials and body wraps. I am always intrigued by the different benefits of each body wrap on the spas menus. Some claim to firm, others moisturize and some body wraps are for detoxing.
I usually wonder to myself, why can’t I get all the benefits in one body treatment?

Now you can! The new Volcanic Ash Wrap is a full body treatment which exfoliates, firms, detoxes and helps with cellulite all in one treatment. This fabulous full body treatment also includes using warm towels on the feet, and a face firming mask while wrapped in the glorious all natural clay, coming straight from the Volcanoes in Alaska.

The disadvantage of other body treatments is that there is a disruption in relaxation time because of having to shower the product off half way during the treatment. With the Volcanic Ash Wrap, you can enjoy your full relaxation time as it is not necessary to get up. Warm towels are used to massage this mask off the body to help exfoliate and detox the skin. Get ready to be amazed!

It’s time to add the Volcanic Ash Wrap to your treatment menu. Click HERE for more information.

Baby Foot Canada

Baby Foot Canada

While attending a spa show late last year, I was drawn to join a crowd around a booth, with women in bare feet displaying their peeling skin. The name of the product is Baby Foot, and according to the women, after one application of the pre saturated booties to the feet, the dead skin should peel off and reveal the soft smooth skin.

Although I was skeptical, I just had to try it! Three days later, there was absolutely no change to my feet, however on the fourth day I was amazed that the dead skin on the bottom of my feet had started to peel. This product really does work, and, I might add very well! The peeling lasted for about 5 days, but it was well worth it, the results were fabulous! I had no idea that my feet could have felt so smooth again; just like babies feet! Click HERE for more information.

Organic Living

Organic Living

When you hear the word organic you first think of internal benefits and what you are eating.

We need to be aware and educate ourselves on the external benefits of organic living.

We should all be taking this new lifestyle one step further by using organic products on the outside of our skin.  Volcanic Origins has been around since 1988 and after one application of this amazing volcanic ash clay you will notice instant surface detox and lifting of the skin.

The microscopic particles actually penetrate and attach themselves to toxins and impurities, pulling them out of the skin.

We all need to remember that when people are in need every dollar helps.  Even if we cannot afford to give, sit back and put yourself in their shoes.  Each of us has seen destruction all over the world and you never know when someone close to your home may be the one in need.  Please give to the Philippines in their time of need.  Remember that every dollar counts and no amount is too small.

Run For Sick Kids

Run For Sick Kids

The past 15 months have been so busy between moving, getting married, selling my day spa, opening a distribution company….

One incident that stays in my mind is when my niece Brooke was born 25 days before my wedding. She was born with a cyst on her left lung and only one week after her birth, she had to have emergency surgery at Sick Kids Hospital. Though this was a very tough time for the whole family (especially my brother and sister in law) we all pulled together and with prayer and grace my niece is a healthy 15 month old.

In September members of my family and I ran the Toronto 5K to raise money for Sick Kids. It feels good to challenge myself and raise money for a great cause.

To the left is a picture of my niece on my wedding day. 21-09-12
