House De Creme De La Creme
Oh hot damn, was I feeling spicy last week. I was sitting in my favorite Vietnamese place in Sherwood Park (my home town), and enjoying a nice bowl of Spicy Noodle Soup. Low and behold across the street I saw a super cute store that I had never noticed before. I like to think of myself as being in the know at all times and was annoyed that I hadn’t heard of this place sooner!

Enter Creme de la Creme a beauty lounge, blow out bar, custom makeup store… basically the best thing to hit Sherwood Park since the Costco Gas Station.

I booked an appointment for three days later and went in totally not knowing what to expect but judging from the website, knowing I’d love every inch of it.

The store is gorgeous and decked out in gold, Tiffany blue, and enough chic details to flatlay until your heart is content. I literally wanted to spend hours in there posing on the chaise lounge and pretending to answer the cute vintage telephone at the desk. Yes, I am that person.

Unfortunately, work had to be done. I had a photo shoot booked for noon at the gorgeous Fairmont and needed to GLAM DA FUQ UP. The lovely Sondra got to work and gave me a perfect blown out bob using Davines products. It was sleek and chic and she even tamed the hell out of my baby hairs.

House De Creme De La CremeI opted for a full face of makeup that would hopefully put Kylie J to shame. No curve was left uncontoured and the “Paparazzi Ready” style makeover was exactly that. How cute is this place with blowouts called “Va Va Volume” and house made Mink Eyelashes called “Saucy”. This place was totally on brand for me and life will be good if I can just go back and buy allll the things.

As I was getting my makeup and hair done by Sondra, the owner Akousa came in and told me her story. We just hit it off and I was crazy impressed with how much she knew about beauty and basically what women want.  She is a branding and marketing genius knowing full well that girls can appreciate the product just as much as the packaging. I love meeting bad ass women who see a market for something and just go after it.
House De Creme De La CremeI left the salon/store/spa feeling too sexy for my own good.I think the guys at the Fairmont Valet were super confused when this hot piece of ass walked out of her old dirty green mini-van. I’m just so glad there is somewhere local to go for my makeup and hair needs, mama is happy.

Creme De La Creme is the perfect spot for a girl’s day and I’ve already gathered the masses to go back and make our own lipsticks. Super affordable, interactive and just different than getting manis-pedis. YAWN. I’ll bring you guys along for the whole shabang via Instagram, don’t you worry.

I had a blast at Creme De La Creme and will be back way sooner than later. Check it out! If you are an Edmonton local you definitely need to stop by and see what I’m talking about. VA VA VOOM 😉

Some days you just gotta indulge, you feel me? I have a huge problem with brand loyalty and love trying out new things. I don’t think I’ve EVER purchased a second bottle of a foundation, or only stuck to one kind of protein bar. I just gotta try it all, kinda like Pokemon for shopping. […]

Strangely enough, I don’t have much to say right now. With no big travel plans for March I’ve just been vegging/ carbing out, and binge watching my fav TV Series.  Whether it’s the weather (-27 today?!?!) , my shoulder injury, or just pure laziness, I have felt anything but creative. So instead I decided to […]

Is anyone else unmotivated lately, just want to stay inside and not shower for days? My yoga pants are seeing a lot more of my couch then a studio, that’s for sure. I’ve never watched this much TV in my life and consider myself an expert at this point. When it comes to my TV series […]

Bermuda was beautiful. I loved how blue the sea was, and spent most of my trip catching up on much-needed sleep. That being said, it was also really chilly and for someone who uses a space heater when coming out of the shower, it definitely wasn’t beach weather. So what did we do? We ate, […]

I’ve traveled solo. I’ve traveled with groups.  I’ve traveled with boyfriends. I’ve even traveled with my mother. But never have I had an experience like I had on my NYC trip.  For this one I traveled with a friend. Not wanting to give too much away (I’ll save it for my tell-all memoir), I’ve instead […]

What a trip. China was great. It was weird but great, I saw things I had never seen before, and then some. Despite the spitting, chewing, slurping, burping, elbows in ribs, and general lack of personal space…. I still found the people very hospitable. When I work with hotel’s or restaurants I usually am taken to […]

Hey, party people. I’m coming to you live and well from 40,000ft in the air sitting all cute and bougie in first class….  probably above Iraq or somewhere equally as terrifying. Maybe not tho. I’ll never claim to know world geography. So if you follow me on Instagram, you would have heard or seen that […]

Travelling isn’t easy. If people say it is, they are either lying or on Zoloft. As I write this I am in Vancouver waiting to go home after my 13-hour flight from China…. sounds shitty? Well, it gets even worse. My flight to Edmonton is canceled due to an ice storm. So not only am […]
