Good morning from a very, very snowy #HamOnt!
Lots of the white stuff fell from the sky and swirled around for most of Monday, leaving us with yet another winter wonderland out there. And then there’s the cold, too. This week is going to be particularly freezing, but at least the snow stays nice and clean? Silver lining? Sure, let’s go with that.
With all the weather excitement over the past few weeks, it’s easy to forget that we are actually at the end of January, and while the end of winter isn’t exactly in sight just yet, it’s a nice reminder that this too shall pass and we will see the sun and feel its warmth again!
And, what comes after January? Well, yes, February. And if you’ve been out in the shops you might have noticed that pink and red have exploded on the scene which means yes, Valentine’s Day is (nearly) upon us!
We know, we know, you’ve probably got some deep feelings about V Day, it’s one of those holidays that tends to polarize people. But, love it, hate it, or feel ambivalent about it, it’s impossible to ignore, so perhaps just make the best of it by indulging in some of your favourite treats – with or without a Valentine!
Aveda wants to help you find a gift for that special someone, and if that special someone is you, even better!
Visit Willow or Aveda.ca to see our Valentine gift sets which this year prominently feature Cherry Almond Softening shampoo and conditioner. And we think that’s just perfect. It’s a gorgeously sweet, fruity, and floral aroma that makes you think of chocolate covered cherries or candy hearts! Not to mention the pretty in pink packaging that has won our hearts time and again! The limited edition Gift of Cherry Almond is a fantastic gift idea for someone you love, or, again, if you’re in the market to be your own Valentine you could do a LOT worse than this gift pack with the shampoo, conditioner AND the signature Aveda paddle brush. Swoon!
A nice little touch if you’re browsing the website looking for gift ideas, there are a couple of cute video tutorials for date night hair and makeup ideas! What a nice treat!
If you’re undecided about how you feel about the whole V Day idea, it’s ok. You’ve still got time, and we recommend a little self-care in the form of an Aveda gift for yourself, or whatever makes you feel good. You just can’t go wrong loving yourself, and whether you do it with a purchase of something new, or you simply take the time to do something you love, we’re behind you 100%!
Have a great week, friends. We’ll be back on Friday with more bloggy goodness for you all!
