EMMA’S TOP 10 THINGS TO GIFT YOURSELF

‘JUST BECAUSE’

It may not be Valentine’s, Christmas or even your birthday, but that’s okay, because we don’t believe that you need an excuse to treat yourself. Why not treat yourself to something today, regardless of when your next celebration is. Celebrate today, just because! Consider it part of your self-love / self-care regime.

We have picked out a few of our favourite things to give you some inspiration, the next time you decide to spoil yourself.

AGE OF ADELINE (MOVIE)

$8.99 ($4.99 used)

 
 

Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) has miraculously remained a youthful 29 years of age for nearly eight decades, never allowing herself to get close to anyone lest they discover her secret. However, a chance encounter with a charismatic philanthropist named Ellis Jones reawakens Adaline's long-suppressed passion for life and romance. When a weekend with Ellis' parents threatens to expose the truth, Adaline makes a decision that changes her life forever.

This is probably one of my top 3 favourite movies…maybe even my absolute favourite! I think I pretty much fell in love with Blake Lively after this movie. And I love that even though the movie brings you into present day, her character she is still very much in the 1920s!

BRITISH GALAXY CHOCOLATE

$14.59

 
 

YUMMMMM!

One of the things I miss about living in England is Galaxy chocolate. It is ever so slightly more delicious than Cadbury Dairy Milk (only just), although, I wouldn’t say no to that either.

MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA (BOOK)

$19.77 ($8.39 used)

 
 

In the 1920s, 9-year-old Chiyo gets sold to a geisha house. There, she is forced into servitude, receiving nothing in return until the house's ruling hierarchy determines if she is of high enough quality to service the clientele - men who visit and pay for conversation, dance and song. After rigorous years of training, Chiyo becomes Sayuri, a geisha of incredible beauty and influence. Life is good for Sayuri, but World War II is about to disrupt the peace.

I remember shopping with my friend and she recommended this book. It didn’t seem like a book I would be in to, but holy moly was I wrong. I could not put the book down! And now the movie is on Netflix, YAY!


.4.

TARTE MASCARA

$27.14

 
 

Do it for the "are those your real lashes?" This jet-black, vegan mascara with a molded brush grabs & coats even the tiniest lashes for more volume.

This is my go-to mascara…I just LOVE IT! This mascara really does do what it says. Since becoming vegetarian in 2015, I have been on the search for vegan products. Tarte is definitely my brand of choice for makeup.


.5.

DAVID’S TEA (FAN FAVOURITES)

$32

 
 

This gorgeous gourmet tea gift box was made to entertain. With three sachets each of 12 of our most popular teas and infusions, there’s truly a tea for every mug. 

Includes: Buddha’s Blend, Cherry Blossom, Cinnamon Rooibos Chai, Cream of Earl Grey, Earl Grey, Electric Lemonade, Forever Nuts, Green Passionfruit, Honeycrisp Apple, Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, Super Ginger and The Buzz.

Forever Nuts and Cream of Earl Grey is my absolute favourite and they both team really well with the Galaxy chocolate!!

‘BE YOU’ HOODIE

$65

 
 

Medium Grey Poly-Cotton Fleece Pullover Hoodie with White Draw String. It's made with a super comfortable blend of 60% Combed and ring-spun cotton and 40% poly fleece, 30 single and 10.8 oz. It has Kangaroo pockets, ribbed cuffs and waistband, and is side-seamed. 

I may be a little bias since this is from my store, but they are seriously the comfiest hoodies I have EVER worn!


.7.

60 MINUTE ‘INFUSED WITH LOVE’ REFLEXOLOGY SESSION

$70

 
 

Reflexology is a form of body work that reduces body stress via the nervous system. Specific thumb and finger techniques are applied to reflex points that correspond to all the organs, glands and body systems which are mirrored on the feet, hands, ears, and face. 

I was having troubles with my forearms and wrists due to pole fitness, but after 30 minutes of Misty working her magic on my hands, it really eased the pain.


.8.

‘TWICE AS NICE’ DRESS ME SESSION

$100

 
 

If you are like me and just don’t have the time to be trawling through racks of clothing just to find the perfect item, you will probably LOVE this experience!

Twice as Nice is a consignment store in Parkland County and they offer private one-on-one ‘dress me sessions’…so basically, Lisa uses her expertise as a stylist, listens to your wants and needs, and finds you the perfect outfits! How awesome is that?!


.9.

‘ARADIA FITNESS’ POLE CLASSES (8 WEEK PROGRAM)

$160

 
 

You will be introduced to the perfect mix of pole work and sensual movement... transforming your mind and your body. This class includes an important mix of our yoga-fusion workout as well as strength training on and off the pole. You will learn a variety of pole dance spins and transitions and how to combo them together into mini-choreographies. By the end of your first 8 weeks, you could be strong enough to master your first invert, to give you a taste of life upside down!

Enjoy your own journey, take your time learning and do not compare your journey to others. Most of all, you are here to get fit and have fun!

Hello, my name is Emma and I have been a pole addict since July 2018!! It is the funnest and most rewarding form of exercise I have ever done. I can just feel myself getting stronger and stronger, and you usually walk away with quite a few souvenir bruises!!
