Staff Holiday Favorite

Amanda Wolf, body care team member, has selected today's Holiday Favorite.

"If I were to choose an item from the store to give or receive, it would have to be the Juice Beauty To Go Kit. It's a great way to try the whole line, and is great for all skin types. The kit is $29, and totally in my budget.  I think my sister or mom would love it---I know I would!  I recently started using Juice Beauty, an organic juice-based line, and my skin is soft and happy.  It comes with some of my favorite products including the Green Apple Peel and the Nutrient Moisturizer, plus a bamboo wash cloth!"

Staff Holiday Favorite

Nikki McClure's Endeavour 2011 Wall Calendar: Twelve Unique Papercuts

Today's holiday favorite comes from Molly Breitm√ľn, massage therapist.
"Nikki's art celebrates the simple and precious joys of life. The great thing about her gorgeous calendars are, once they have been used, you can frame the months as wall art so they get used again (and the paper was already recycled once before that!). Nikki is a local artist and donates her talent to great causes around Olympia and beyond. I like supporting her while gifting her calendars to my family and friends."
Nikki's calendars have become a staple in kitchens, offices and schools.  Each image is an original papercut, cut from a single piece of paper.  They are printed on acid-free paper using soy ink.

Nikki features strong images of everyday life, each with a powerful verb that inspires to action.  This year's verbs and phrases: Behold, Make Eye Contact, Expect, Endeavour, Praise, Ready, Choose, Source, Shelter, Accept, Exercise, Give.

We'll be closed for Thanksgiving! November 25th

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. ~W.T. Purkiser

Staff Pick of the Week

This week's Staff Pick comes from Ariel Birks, body care buyer.

"I love tiffins! I use my tiffin every day I bring lunch to work and I haven't found a meal that can't come along inside one of these stainless steel lunch boxes. I've had combos like borscht, sour cream and piroshki; stir-fry, rice and chutney; and the good old soup and a salad with dressing in my tiffin. The stainless steel is great because it doesn't get a lingering smell that tempts you to throw it away like other plastic wares. Great for a student or anyone with an out-of-home lunch hour."

"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives."

Staff Pick of the Week

Our Staff Pick this week comes from Gayle Lueckenotte, massage reception team leader, who has chosen Seasons of the Soul herbal flower oils from Flower Essences Services.

"I first tried the Mugwort Moon Magic last winter during our severe cold spell.  Often in the evenings, my feet would get so cold that I couldn't get to sleep--even if I put on socks and used an extra blanket.  While Mugwort Moon Magic is most often used to encourage the menstrual cycle to be more regular and harmonious, it is also warming and nourishing to the circulation.  It benefits all cold, conjested areas of the body--especially extemities such as hands and feet. So, I started rubbing the oil on my feet at bedtime and then put on a pair of light-weight socks to keep the oil off the sheets. Soon, the chill was banished and I was able to sleep comfortably through the night."

*During the month of November, all Flower Essence Services products are on sale.
