THE FACE BAR
The Ten Spa team has partnered with Beverly Hills Medical Esthetician to the stars, Tricia Dikes to bring The Face Bar to Winnipeg. Their mission is to revolutionize skincare that is often too costly and time consuming. The Face Bar has condensed the facial process into 4 different 30 minutes affordable, high quality and most importantly effective services for everyone.

The Face Bar also offers affordable, professional-grade skincare solutions. They dispense their own curated selection of face cleansers, scrubs, toners, face moisturizer and body care products in whatever amount you choose with no expensive branding or packaging to hike up the price. New products available weekly in-store.
Feel good about giving Mom something special and beautiful AND give back. We love the line of jewelry designed by Hilary Druxman that offers a portion of the sales back to non-profits. It’s a fantastic way to raise awareness and give back. Our favourite this spring is the ALS Society of Manitoba Necklace, Teamwork. The design features a perfect square that reveals four lines of symmetry, evoking harmony, equality, balance and coordination. Whatever cause is near her heart there is something Hilary Druxman has created that Mom can connect with. Shop HERE.
BRENE BROWN: The Call to Courage (NETFLIX)
How about carving out the gift of time to watch an uplifting exploration of humor and empathy with Brené Brown on Netflix.CA. In this latest talk, Brown discusses what it takes to choose courage over comfort in a culture defined by scarcity, fear and uncertainty. What a fantastic opportunity to ask questions of our moms and discover what she views as courage versus what our definition is. There will be a variety of answers and we just might learn more about the woman we call mom from her experiences as a woman in her own time and place and what she learned about taking her space and creating ours too.
If mom is an audiophile the gift of vinyl is perfect. We love the collection at London Drugs. Shop online and pick-up in-store or go in to the St. Vital Centre store and peruse the collections just like it was 1990.
WORDS OF INSPIRATION
A gorgeous new collection of poems about being a woman. This book is a celebration of womanhood in all its dimensions, including love, beauty, friendship, motherhood, work, ageing and so much more. Featuring illustrations by one of our favourites Karolin Schnoor, and the writing of the likes of Cole Swensen, Margaret Atwood and Naomi Shihab Nye. Available at Tiny Feast.
Shoe Therapy: Fluevog Day is Coming Up!
May 15th is a day every well-informed Fluevoger marks on their calendar in red, blue, teal and sometimes, glitter. After all, International Fluevog Day combines the love of Valentine’s Day, the excitement of New Year’s Eve and the fellowship of St. Patrick’s Day into one ultimate celebration of unique soles for unique souls. If you want to delay some gratification for Mother’s Day and take mom shopping on May 15, I’m sure she will be game. Eveline Street Clothing in Lockport is your Fluevog headquarters locally.

No matter what you choose to gift to mom this year, she will love it.
