This month I had the pleasure of celebrating Women’s International Day which is something that is very near and dear to my heart so much so that we decided at Bella that we were going to celebrate all month long. Did you get a chance to checkout our Facebook page to see our famous women quotes? Which one was your favourite? Send us a message and let us know!
We started the month off with our fabulous draw (make sure to check out our Facebook page for our daily updates!) of the Celeste serum and our very own Céleste Lévis’s CD. The City of Timmins is so proud of the things that Céleste has been able to accomplish in such a short period of time. She is our own shining star. Congrats to Manda Lavigne who won the contest!
Inspiring women has always been a passion of mine. I think that women need to help each other achieve their goals in order for us to succeed together. Sharing each other’s stories along with the ups and downs that got us to where we are is how others will start believing in themselves and take their entrepreneurial spirit into full swing.
I live by the motto:
“Dream. Vision. Set Goal
Make it happen
If you don’t believe in what you do then no one else will. Believe in yourself and things will happen for you.
I had the honour last year of speaking at the “I Am” conference that was held at Thériault high school. The conference consisted of different speakers from different field talking about their success and how they got to where they are today. Being able to organize this event that has always bee
n a dream of mine and to speak about my journey and my business was amazing to me. I always believe I could achieve what I set my mind to and it was very important for me to share that with other women.
Speaking at this conference has encouraged me to pursue different avenues in my career and expand my horizons. I have had the honour of mentoring and assisting my daughter to pursue her dreams and passions while being by her side every day. I am very eager for her to come back from maternity leave to see what else we can accomplish together.
I am thrilled to announce that we will be doing an Women Empowering Women’s series and I will be showcasing wonderful women from the community who have established themselves in the city as business women, parents and community leaders. Make sure to watch our fist episode with Celeste Levis, and watch out for our second one coming out this May with special guest Karine Briand.
Make sure to stat tuned into our Facebook and Emails this April, we have lots of fun stuff coming up. Including the Home Show and Sportsman Show here in Timmins. I have brought in lots of new products from different companies that are just fabulous and I cannot wait for you to see.
Have a good day Bellas!
February Recap! ❤️⭐️https://bellaestheticsandspa.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/giphy.gif 499 264 Bella Esthetics & Spa Bella Esthetics & Spa https://bellaestheticsandspa.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/giphy.gif
This last month has been a month filled with family time here at Bella Esthetics. We celebrated some big birthday milestones, valentine’s day and family day weekend. I hope you were all able to spend some time with your families and loved ones this month. Let me share our month with you!
We celebrated my Mom’s birthday, the big 8-0 this year! We spent some time together celebrating her life surrounded by family. My sister Danielle, who is currently in Florida, came up to surprise my mom at her party. The look on my mom’s face was priceless; she was smiling ear to ear. She was extremely excited to see us all together in her honour.
Her birthday was not the only big one year, my dad also turned 80!!!! We all got together to throw my dad a surprise party, and was he ever surprised! My dad’s birthday was February 17th and he was lucky enough to head down to Florida and avoid this cold weather we’ve been getting. Have fun in Florida Dad!!!!
Family birthdays were not the only ones being celebrated this month, a few friends, clients, and my nephew also got to party and celebrate themselves on their special day. The whole month of February exploded with birthday love for all those celebrating.
Just for you Bella’s we had a great draw for a free manicure this month! (did you see our Facebook contest? Make sure to check out our page… we have a few more surprises up our sleeve this year). We wanted to thank all of you for the love and support through the contest! We loved reading your comments. Congratulations again to Jane Deyne who was the winner of the FREE manicure!
Our month got even busier with the long weekend for family day. It was a time for us to regroup and spend some time in nature. I took a long walk with Lia, the two dogs and of course my beautiful granddaughter Camille. We finished off the weekend with a nice bonfire to warm us up and had a blast sharing the kitchen with everyone for our meals. My favourite part of the weekend (other than family time of course) was the muffins we made. SOOOO delicious!!! They were Carrot & Apple muffins… I’ll give you the recipe below and you can tell me how they turned out on our Facebook page.
Thanks for checking in Bella’s and I look forward to hearing what you have done for your family day weekend!
SNEAK PEAK! … We believe that empowering women is very important so we have decided that we will be celebrating Women’s Internal MONTH… that is right celebrating all the wonderful women out there the WHOLE MONTH!
My great friend Celeste Lévis is our special inspiring women for the month of March. For those of you who don’t know her Celeste is a great singer from Timmins. She has our rising star and we are very proud of everything she has accomplished. We will be having a draw for a bottle of Celeste product as well as her CD make sure to checkout our Facebook page for more information on how to enter.
Wishing all my Bella’s the best. See you later! ❤️
A New Year for Accomplishing New (And Existing!) Goalshttps://bellaestheticsandspa.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/yougotitdude.gif 500 331 Bella Esthetics & Spa Bella Esthetics & Spa https://bellaestheticsandspa.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/yougotitdude.gif
Happy new year, Bellas! I hope each and every one of you enjoyed a fabulous holiday and are feeling renewed and rejuvenated for the new year ahead of us! We trust that Santa was good to the Bellas this year as I’m positive all of us made the nice list!
First of all, I truly want to thank those of you who supported our open house days in the month of December, both at our spa on December 9th as well as those of you who took advantage of our online open house sale on the following Friday, December the 16th. I was truly overwhelmed by the amount of support shown to me throughout the community and we hope to have aided you during the hectic last-minute holiday shopping season!
For those of you who weren’t already aware, 2016 marked my first Christmas as a grandmother and this made for a very special occasion. From my family to yours, all of us would like to wish you a very happy and successful 2017!
Once the calendar had officially marked the beginning of the new year, myself and a few good friends got together for a fantastic evening of food, drink, and laughs by the barrel! As stressful as the holidays may get at times, I am always extremely thankful and grateful for all of the amazing people I am blessed to have in my life, both on a personal as well as on a professional level. Here’s to great memories and to making many more new ones!
If there’s any downside to the Christmas holidays, it’s the fact that once the time off concludes, we have a tendency to put a ton of pressure upon ourselves to stick to our resolutions. We must always keep a positive frame of mind and set realistic expectations of ourselves so we aren’t sabotaging our attempts to hit our targets before we’ve even gotten started!
I read an interesting article recently that spoke to the reasons behind why we often fail when it comes to our ‘to-do’ lists. According to IdoneThis, a company which sells progress-tracking software, 41% of to-do items are never completed.
Here’s a huge reason why: people often fill their to-do list with far too many items. This can lead to anxiety and worry that doesn’t end up resulting in a whole lot of accomplishment. Also, a big problem is that we are often giving ourselves way too much time to complete our goals. Too much time to finish something? The more likely we’ll continue to put it off.
One of the most enlightening items from the article (at least for me) came with a simple perspective-challenging sentence: “Only 15 per cent of the things that people accomplish start as planned to-do items. That means most of what is accomplished – 85 per cent – is never even on the list.”
Wow. Think of that figure the next time you tell yourself you aren’t worthy of a bit of credit. Because we are constantly facing new events, new interruptions, and new challenges – oftentimes, things that can pop up out of nowhere which become immediate priorities – so much of what we are accomplishing never made it to our list in the first place.
As the article suggests, when creating your to-do list, write out the next step you’ll need to take to get you closer towards your goal. This makes your endgame a lot more attainable as you now have an action in place for your next step rather than looking solely at the ultimate final outcome.
On a similar note, I’d like you to take the five minutes required to watch this video entitled, “Take Responsibility for Your Life”:
Beyond the incredibly inspiring clip above, the folks at Fearless have a few fantastic recommendations on how to find the motivation to change your life and create a new YOU for the new year!
- Fear of change
- Not wanting to be uncomfortable
- Fear of insecurity
- Feeling worn-out
- Fear of failure
- Lack of time
- Too busy
- Fear of not being good enough
- Feeling overwhelmed
None of these are insurmountable!
TAKE SMALL STEPS
- If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the huge change ahead, take one small step at a time instead. What one small action can you take TODAY that will help you to move forward NOW?
HIRE AN ACCOUNTANT
- Not a financial accountant but a trusted individual who can hold you accountable for your actions!
EMBRACE THE DESIRE YOU HAVE!
There is simply no good reason why 2017 can’t be the best year yet for all of us! One of my main goals for 2017 is to continue helping to keep your skin, body, and mind healthy while providing the occasional motivational boost along the way!
With last year’s launch of our new website and online shop, it’s only right that I do my best to give back as much as possible in thanks of your continued support.
Have a great year, Bellas!
Please Donate to Local Families in Need this Christmas!https://bellaestheticsandspa.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/christmascharlie.gif 400 300 Bella Esthetics & Spa Bella Esthetics & Spa https://bellaestheticsandspa.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/christmascharlie.gif
Hello again, my wonderful Bellas!
Thank you to everyone who showed up to our spa for our customer appreciation open house event!

I’d like to thank EVERYONE who was kind enough to bring along their donations in support of this incredibly important cause!

A Very Happy Thanksgiving to All!https://bellaestheticsandspa.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/thanksgivingdance.gif 450 300 Bella Esthetics & Spa Bella Esthetics & Spa https://bellaestheticsandspa.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/thanksgivingdance.gif
Hello again, Bellas! I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and was able to spend some time with their closest friends and family! We are so blessed to enter into a new season of change by marking it with a special family holiday where we reflect upon all of the things that we have to be thankful for.
This year, we took the opportunity to give back to some of the less fortunate members within our community and I want to start by saying that NONE of this would have been possible without the support and generosity of my Bellas. Thanks to your help, we were able to provide a bounty of food and groceries to two terrific families in need as well as the Timmins & Area Women in Crisis! TAWC is an organization that I have been working alongside for some time now and I can’t thank you all enough for your exceptional acts of kindness! I am so proud of all of my clients for contributing to this endeavour and you will forever have my gratitude!
Have a look at these pics of my daughter, Lia, and I as we get set to make our way through our list of deliveries!
Look at all that food! Great job, Bellas! ?
We wanted to enter the season on a positive note and we truly thank you for your assistance in helping us to accomplish our goal! To maintain the positivity, we’d like to bring your attention back to our amazing and user-friendly website consultation tools! They’re free, easy to use, and will help you to match the best products available for tackling your problem areas! As we prepare for the Autumn and the accompanying dipping temperatures, it is important to remember that our skin will require extra nourishment and hydration in order to combat and protect against the harshening elements.
For those of you who are unaware, the goal of the Bella Esthetics & Spa site isn’t to simply generate a large volume of cold sales, we are most interested in supplying you with the products and regimens that best compliment your own personal lifestyle. In order to accomplish this, we’ve made three complimentary tools available to our website visitors that provide an immense amount of value – each of them coming free of charge!
See my video below for a more detailed explanation!
The first option is to use our online consultation form. Once you fill out all of the appropriate fields and attach a headshot of yourself (sans-makeup), I (Lynne) will follow up with you directly to discuss the products that best match your skin type. This is a one-on-one online consultation and all information is kept secure and confidential and will only be seen by me.
For the more experienced client, the option to consult with the Dr. Renaud Product Table is always available. Please be aware of the tabs across the top as the table defaults to its general skin care section.
Finally, and perhaps the most fun to use, is the option to use our interactive face tool. This face functions through a simple point and click where the user clicks upon their problem area, enters some information pertaining to their skin type, and the appropriate product is served up immediately. We worked hard to get this tool up and running and would love to hear some feedback on it from our users. Have you tried it? Did it provide you with an enjoyable experience? Is there anything you feel we can do to increase its effectiveness? We’d love to hear from you in the comments!
Another big component of the Bella philosophy is to strive to consistently educate our audience so that they can lead altogether better lives! We want to share important information that bolsters the confidence of our Bellas and has them feeling more in control of their physical and mental well-being!
A recent internet debate propped up as to whether or not its necessary to clean your legs in the shower…yes, we couldn’t believe it ourselves! Ha ha! However, we aren’t laughing in order to shame people, it is just always surprising to discover how different people are from one another when it comes to their hygiene and care routines. Put simply, it comes down to a matter of proper education and information sharing.
It may surprise you to learn how many adults fail to clean in and behind their ears when cleaning their face! Did you know that it’s better (and safer) to clean the inside of your ears with a washcloth rather than a Q-tip? I have always felt that putting a little added care into your daily face cleansing regimen can keep your skin looking healthier and younger with just a few extra minutes!
Please take a look at the tutorial I put together in relation to the proper cleansing of your skin!
As I’ve already mentioned, Thanksgiving marks our entrance into a new season and doubles as the last major holiday prior to Christmas! So, as it can be a very tumultuous time, we want to do our best to ensure our Bellas are making a healthy and graceful transition!
This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for family, great friends, and my amazing Bellas, all of whom provide me with more motivation and inspiration than you could ever hope to realize! All of you provide the fuel I need to keep my engine going and every comment, like, or piece of feedback I receive from you means the world to me.
I sincerely look forward to continuing to build upon our already beautiful relationship and hope you enjoy a fantastic week as we navigate through this fabulous October weather!
