Spring Break (or any trip) Packing Guide

Image
March is officially here, which means that Spring isn’t far behind. Before we get there though, it’s that time of year where many people travel for a week to escape to get a break from the cold weather: Spring Break. Now this annual migration is popular among college students, but we’re not talking about a Spring Breakers type situation for your getaway. We’re talking about a rejuvenating, family friendly Spring vacation. So, if you are traveling this time of year, we compiled your very own packing guide. 


At this point, you’ve got your destination picked out and it’s most likely somewhere warm and sunny. Although depending on where you’re going, it may not be 80 degrees every day. The temperature could fluctuate and get down to the 60s, especially at night. 


Tip 1: Prepare for the weather and pack a variety of clothing options.



Of course, the essentials like shorts, short sleeve shirts, and tank tops will make their way into your suitcases, but you should also bring some long pants, lon…

Looking for Valentine's Day Date Ideas? Look No Further!

Image
Valentine’s Day is approaching, and there are two types of people around this time of year. First, there's those who love everything about this holiday and the romantic gestures it includes or there's those who think it’s a commercialized holiday and only care about the discounted chocolate on Feb. 15. Now there’s nothing wrong with either, but this blog post is definitely catered to those who enjoy Valentine’s Day since we’ll be giving you some date night ideas for you and your special someone. 

Dancing Skip the club (unless that’s a Valentine’s Date you’re into, you do you) and take a real dance class or find some live music to make up your own impromptu dance to.

Ice Skating Now, this activity may not be the easiest, with balance and whatnot, but it just will give you an excuse to …

Fall/Winter Fashion Must-Haves Part 2

Image
Last November, we wrote a precursor blog post to this one, where we outlined other fall/winter fashion essentials (sweaters and scarves). However, to be able to include all the season’s essentials, it would be too much for one blog, so we decided to split them into two parts. This is our second one, so if you want to catch up on the first post you can read it here: https://www.tlcsalonandspamilford.com/2018/11/fallwinter-fashion-must-haves.html Beanies Beanies can be boiled down to two different styles – with pompoms or without, sure there are many varieties within each category, but we’re going to keep it simple. This accessory is perfect for any fall/winter occasion, not only to keep your head warm, but to add a little flair to your outfit. 
Without Pompoms: Beanies without pompoms are usually not as wintery and can be worn in more situations than ones with pompoms. They can be dressed up and dressed down from a nice sweater to a flannel, these beanies can be worn with either.

12 Days of Aveda

Image
This time of year is filled with holiday themed music, and one of the songs you’re most likely to hear in some way or form is the “12 Days of Christmas.” You know, the one that lists all the presents some lady is getting for 12 days of Christmas. Well, that song was the inspiration behind this blog post, because we decided to take that popular tune and turn it into the 12 Days of Aveda, featuring Aveda’s special gift packages for the holiday season.




On the first day of Aveda, my true love gave to me “A Gift of Rosemary Mint.” This gift set features three rosemary mint products: shampoo, conditioner, and hand/body wash. Each one contains the scent of organic rosemary, peppermint, and other flower and plant essences. 








On the second day of Aveda, my true love gave to me “A Gift of Shampure.” With Shampure’s hand/body wash, body lotion, and moisturizing crème, you’ll be able to give (or receive) the gift that calms the senses. The combination of 25 flower and plant essences like lavender a…

Fall/Winter Fashion Must-Haves

Image
November is here, which means autumn is in full swing, but it also means that winter will be here before we know it. As the leaves fully fall from the trees and the snow begins to leave the ground covered in a white blanket, it’s time to stock up on these fall/winter clothing essentials.

Sweaters
Sweaters are the staple of every fall/winter wardrobe and while almost everyone owns at least one of these clothing items, there are so many different kinds of sweaters to choose from (and it doesn’t hurt to own one of each so you can always mix it up).
Turtlenecks: This sweater style may have been popular in the 90’s, but that doesn’t mean it’s out of style now. On the contrary, turtleneck sweaters are a popular winter staple even in 2018. Not only are there so many ways to wear them, they are perfect for a variety of occasions: from work, to causal wear, or those holiday parties you’ll be invited to. 








           Cardigans: As one of the most versatile type of sweaters, you can style them in so…
