Beauty & The Bargain

Beauty schools, or more  properly, cosmetology schools not only  provide the  next generation of stylists, but provide folks on a limited budget or simply looking for a great bargain, affordable beauty services.  MarkdownMom recently visited Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota for a little pampering.

The Aveda Institute offers not only hair styling and hair cuts, but facials and message, and waterless manicures.  Plus they use their fabulous line of products to achieve your beauty refresher or makeover.  Prices are usually 50% below the market.  It can get crowded on weekends, so MarkdownMom recommends if at all possible make an appointment during the weekday. And when you do,be sure to tell Mike & Courtney “hi” from MarkdownMom!

Let Your Fingers Do The Talking (VIDEO)

Going to a state fair not only gives the fair-goer an opportunity to experience  new deep fried food entries,  famous celebs at the grandstand shows,  special competition events, and farm animals, but also booths offering new products.  Okay, some products are over-exposed product infomercials, however, a number allow a venue for local and innovative products.

One new beauty product MarkdownMom especially liked was the Migi Nail Art™ Designer Nail Art Pens.  This is an opportunity to discover that inner artist in you and create your very own unique fashion statement with your nails.   Your nails are canvas on which you can create your own living works of art with an endless palette of colors. All the tools you need come in one kit for around $25.

UK Brings Urban Chic to Plus Size Beauties

MDM’s FIND OF THE DAY for ALL SEASON FASHION is UK-based clothing and accessories store: SimplyBe.

Finally, there is an online store that offers chic fashion choices for young plus size women: sizes 10 to 28.  Online or in catalog, you’ll find blouses, T-shirts, tunics, skirts, dresses, vests, shrugs, sweaters, jeans, dress pants, jackets, suits, evening wear, swimwear, shapewear and lingerie,  wide calf shoes, purses, belts, and other accessories!  Simply Be sells several brands including Joe Browns, Cool Britannia, Angel Ribbons, Abigail, Jeffrey & Paul, Anna Scholz, Sole Diva, and more!  All clothing is well-designed, cut/fitted, and true to size.  Usually the colors are accurate, however if you are ordering from the catalog be sure to look at the items online too (MDM noticed a few color variations from catalog to online).

Items can be fairly pricey and if you are ordering from out of the country you’ll like encounter custom’s fees in addition to sales tax which is mentioned in their online policy but not stated on the print-out receipt.  However they usually offer several discounts to save you cash such as catalog and online promotional codes ranging from 20 to 30% Off (not permitted to use more than one code).  You can save even more if you wait for end of  season sales such as the 70% off SUMMER CLEARANCE SALE going on right now.

When selecting clothing and accessories outside the UK, MDM recommends looking for unique fashions that you could not find elsewhere and look at the fabric.  Select natural fabrics such as silk, wool, 100% cotton (or high percent cotton to polyester).  Acrylics tend to pill after washes or over time.  When you get items, read the directions.  Some outfits say that the color in the fabric may bleed;  you will need to pre-soak them in cold water then wash before wear.
