Spotlight On: Storm Sister Spatique
A few weeks ago, I made reference to a really great neighborhood spatique in St. Paul. It's called Storm Sister and is helmed by the fabulous Becky Sturm. She knows everything there is to know about the products on her shelves, which makes shopping at her place fun and informative. I walked out of Storm Sister with a huge stash of beauty products that she helped me choose, and a head-full of information about all natural beauty products. Becky doesn't carry products that are made with unnatural ingredients, and she taught me a lot about exactly why parabens are so evil (I'd obviously heard they were...but didn't quite understand why.)
Becky loves to talk shop about all things beauty, and one of the coolest ways she interactes with her customers is through a program called Beauty Clunkers. Go through your drawers and cabinets or wherever you squirrel away bottles and palettes of products that you bought but never quite got the hang of. Give Becky a call, set up an appointment, bring your stash in and she'll teach you how to properly use or re-work your products. She'll tell what's a lost cause, what's a keeper and can recommend alternatives that you'll actually use. She'll even toss in a gift certificate for 50% off an item and a few samples. Win-win.
Doesn't that sound like a fun thing to do with your girlfriends? A little Beauty Clunkers party. For you Bombshells located in and around the Twin Cities, head to Storm Sister for a well-edited selection of makeup, hair, nail and bath products. Totally worth it.
For everyone else, take a peek at Storm Sister's online shop. I recommend:
Blissful Bath Hand Polish
John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk*
Softees Microfiber Towel (this towel has cut the dryer time of my hair in half. Seriously.)
