I experienced Bombay Brow Bar for the first time this past week, and am hooked! Slightly more expensive than a drop-in threading salon, it’s worth it. Excellent service, perfectly balanced brows, modern Indian ambiance. I chose rose water oil for the relaxing forehead massage, but imagine the aloe-scented option is lovely too.

It’s amazing what great eyebrows can do to enhance your face!

3 locations in Vancouver. Brow shaping starts at $24. Book by phone or online. 

2) Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Conditioner

For those of us who dream of luxurious, voluminous, silky long hair, Moraccan Oil’s Extra Volume Conditioner is a great choice. I’ve found that it adds subtle volume while still detangling and hydrating beautifully. And the scent! Makes conditioning a sensual experience.

Colour safe, contains antioxidant argan oil and nutrients. Free of sulfates, phosphates and parabens. Find at a local salon, or online.

3) Chai Tea

No, not your chai tea latte from Starbucks. Spicy, complex, truly authentic Indian Chai Tea. There’s nothing more comforting and warming on a cold winters day.

Want to try making it at home? Check out this recipe from  A Spicy Perspective. 

4) Cranberry-Orange Loaves

I came across this recipe in Martha Stewart Living magazine and thought these little mini-loaves would make great holiday gifts for neighbours. Baked them this morning and am very pleased with the results. They keep for 3 days, and freeze for 3 weeks if you want to pre-bake them. With dried cranberries and tons of orange zest, my house smells amazing right now.

What are you loving this December?
