There is never enough reasons to celebrate - especially Birthday!!!And this year is very special to.....Tiffany & Co who celebrates its 175 Anniversary!!!
On September 18 1837. Charles Lewis Tiffany founded a “stationery and fancy goods emporium” known as Tiffany, Young and Ellis and sold a wide variety of stationery items. The name evolved into Tiffany & Co. in 1853 when Charles Tiffany, “The King of Diamonds”, 
took control and focused on jewelry.

Whether it is the iconic Tiffany Setting, the Tiffany Diamond Audrey Hepburn wore for the 1961 film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, or the distinctive Tiffany Blue Box, this jewelry house has been a part of every girl’s dream.
“Since the early twentieth century, the world has been enchanted with Tiffany glamour. In the 1961 Hollywood classic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, Audrey Hepburn personified Tiffany style… 
Today, Tiffany’s exquisite designs continue to exude sophistication and elegance in magazines, in films and on the red carpet.

Many of us don't even realize that is was Tiffany&Co that introduced the engagement ring that became part of the most important decision in people's life.

Last Tuesday, I got an invitation to spend a wonderful morning at "Breakfast at Tiffany's" at Tiffany's boutique in Chinook Centre/Calgary. Together with selected bloggers(also my friends), in beautiful settings, my eyes could cherish the moment of looking at the beautiful Tiffany's creations and designs.....and of course trying them on!!!

In honor of its 175th anniversary, Tiffany & Co. unveils RUBEDO™ metal, a new jeweler’s metal. RUBEDO™ metal is the first such creation in Tiffany’s history and takes its place among the most beautiful metals in the world.

At the 1878 Paris fair, Tiffany became the first American silversmith to take home the Grand Prize for Excellence, awarded for its ingenious Japanesque silver of inlaid mixed metals and complex alloys of gold, silver, copper, bronze and platinum.

Tiffany 1837™ RUBEDO™ jewelry designs inscribed with the signature of founder Charles Lewis Tiffany are available for 2012, in celebration of Tiffany’s anniversary year, at select Tiffany & Co. stores worldwide and at Tiffany.com. 


Guerlain’s Christmas 2012 makeup collection was inspired by the brand’s fragrance Liu. 
It is  Olivier Echaudemaison’s  interpretation of the scent which was created in 1929 by Jacques Guerlain.
Liu is a  hymn to femininity and true love,which was inspired by  the heroine of Turandot, Puccini’s opera. 
The story is about the  young slave who chooses to commit suicide rather than reveal the name of her master with whom she is in love.  The scent symbolized the power of secrets.

This collection includes:
LIU, Perfumed Shimmer Powder Face, Body and Hair 
The notes are: luminous aldehydes, a sensual armful of roses and a caressing base of vanilla,
 iris and woody notes.

LIU, Eye And Lip Calligraphy Palette 
This collectors item was inspired by the art of calligraphy and Asian beauty rituals. It includes two shades for the lips – carmine and blue-toned red,  three eye shadows with an iridescent powder texture – bronze, copper and white, and a  matte black powder liner that can be used wet or dry.

MÉTÉORITES PERLES DU DRAGON, Illuminating Powder – Pure Radiance 
The shades are:  pale pink and beige to even out the complexion, white and gold to illuminate, plum and rosewood to brighten areas of shadow and erase fatigue.
MÉTÉORITES WULONG, Exceptional Pressed Powder 
‘Matte shades – three light, medium and golden beiges to even out the complexion, and a pink to refresh and revive – are paired with two white and gold illuminating shades that enter the scene to add subtle radiance.’

Last week I received an invitation from Sothys Paris to experience one of their signature facial treatments - C Renewal System - at one of the Spa's in Calgary - Victoire Esthetic.
It was my first time visit at the Spa and I have to admit - I had such a relaxing time while I was there!
The idea behind my trip to the SPA- was to share my honest opinion with You - both about the treatment as well as about the place!!

C Renewal Treatment aims at fighting with the process of aging, where the skin is attacked daily by aggressors in our environment and resulting in loss of vibrancy, elasticity and youthfulness.

I was so excited when I entered the Spa and i had a chance to meet both the Owner - Barbara as well as Spa Manager - Karen, who is also an esthetician doing my facial that day. The procedure took almost 2 hours - and not only I had a chance to switch off from my daily craziness but also what a big difference I could see looking at my face right after leaving the treatment room - my skin was definitely more radiant and hydrated!

But that is not the last step - to continue the procedure and achieve best results - I received 
the C Renewal Set to use every evening at home for 2 months. As we all know, it is the night time when the repairing and regenerative functions of the cells are more concentrated, making it the optimal time to fight the visible signs of aging. The C Renewal Line utilizes H2CR (Cell Health Restoring Complex) which contains messenger plant peptides and powerful natural anti - oxidants.

Kit includes: * C Renewal Microdermabrasion Mask, 6 doses: A self-heating microdermabrasion to exfoliate skin giving it a more even tone. * C Renewal Double Renewal System , .5 oz: A glycolic acid base peel to soothe and repair the skin. * C Renewal Continuous Renewal Care, 1.7 oz: Renewing night cream provides a glowing and revitalized youthful appearance the following morning.

If You are interested in trying the treatment on Your own - now You have a chance to WIN this exceptional SPA experience at Victoire Esthetic in Calgary!

All You have to do is send me an email to abasak@fashioncalgary.ca and share 
"what is Your favourite SPA treatment and why"????
The most interesting email - is going to WIN the Gift Certificate at the Victoire Esthetic (http://www.victoireesthetic.com/).
