and so marks the beginning of our birthmonth, the lead up to the day that is really truly our most favorite. narcissistic as it may, we just adore it: november (the sole appearance of woman’s letter, the symmetry of numbers). scorpio, through and through.
while we’ve yet to suffer (cum enjoy) the fate of dating a scorpioned sting, we find ourself attracted, pulled towards other scorps in the platonic sense. as if we tune into a fellow frequency amongst a crowd, sense their complication, need to feed the fire. there’s just something about them, always sending us into cravings of their company.
it was almost five years ago we stumbled into oft-extolled gee beauty, our inner gorgeous perhaps just as in need of rescue as indeed our eyebrows were. and it was within this little rosedale gem we found something extraspecial, to which we now return on the monthly: sweet wonderland of services treats and treatments, from some of the best in town. no one but natalie has touched our brows since 2006. mum slash beauty guru miriam mans the makeup brushes, and what she can do to your face in half an hour is as striking as it is transformative. a bevvy of beauty, all of it delivered consistently in gee’s chic and breezy style (and brought to life as one of the most visually stunning brands this strategist has yet seen). it’s basically impossible to leave gee beauty not feeling beautiful, and looking it too. brasandranties recommends.
this week, gee is turning five years old, and to celebrate they’re making you feel as gorgeous as you are. each day (starting, uh, yesterday) they’ll be offering one of their signature services, en gratis. as well, they’re capping off the celebration with (what we thinks is) the best news yet: the opening of 6, the big vision of an already-established eye for curation: a boutique right next door. see you there, gorgeous!
