WHAT: I really found a gem of a vintage shop this past week when I visited The Chief Salvage Co. for the first time. This store has a stellar selection of vintage treasures and jewels displayed to have you looking every way... including up! The owner, Cody, frequently updates the store's tumblr and instagram pages with her latest finds. So, if you're a quick draw on-line, you can secure great finds faster than you can get to the store. This makes me happy 'cause I don't live in Toronto, but I do have 'connections' (you know who you both are!) who live up the street, who offered to be there as fast as my little fingers can text!

It's no secret that I really don't like winter much. I detest the cold and my skin really takes a beating. So when a friend of mine told me to try her Moroccan Hammam spa products last seen here , I didn't hesitate.
Rooted in the ancient concept of Roman baths, these products left my dry and winter damaged skin re-hydrated and glowing. My favorite is the Moroccan Lava Clay; a multi-purpose product that once added to water and made into a paste, can be applied to both the body and hair. The results were refreshing (literally).
Creating the perfect Hammam spa experience in my home has now become a part of my weekly ritual, thanks Amal. buy it here
If you want the full Hammam spa experience, her products are used at Shangrila Toronto
