The Teen Age.
It's a period of time when life throws many curve balls. You never seem to know what's coming and you always need to be prepared. Your emotions are a rollercoaster and every day is filled with drama! And this is just for the parents!
The Teen Age was born from the need to find clothes for my teenage daughters. Buying clothes that they wanted to wear was close to impossible. They just couldn't find anything 'out there'. Everything was too fancy, frilly, skimpy, old-lady-ish, baby-ish, or just plain ugly. Then there's the problem of finding clothes that are comfortable, age appropriate and ethically made but also doesn't break the bank.
Our first summer collection has been designed with all these things in mind. Young teen girls who want an easy-to-wear, comfortable weekend wardrobe. Not too fancy. Not too frilly. Not too skimpy. But just right.
When you’re a teen, you’re always searching for ways to look your best. The rumour mill is full of recipes, products, and potential cures that could either work miracles for your complexion - or prove to be complete myths.
To save you the pain and disappointment of bad advice, we’ve set out to bust myths, and confirm the cures - so you can save face without fuss.
Becoming a teenager isn’t easy. A whole lot of changes come through at once; affecting how the body works, how we look and how we feel. It turns life upside down – sometimes in both good and bad ways.
The most telling sign of this ‘coming of age’ and internal turbulence shows itself in our skin. Back in the ‘good, old days’ of of being a pre-teen, we were usually lucky enough to get away without a blemish. But puberty brings about signature spots as time passes, and it’s only natural to see these hormonal changes pop up every now and then; it’s all apart of making the beautiful transition from girlhood to womanhood! And it’s actually very exciting.
With the right skincare routine for teens in hand, all of those spots and dots – from acne to blemishes and beyond – can be easily managed. Let’s walk through the why, the what, and the how, shall we?
"Do I have to have salad?"
The question I am asked nearly every dinner time.
I'm not sure why they bother because the answer is always a resounding "YES!" but I guess they can always live in hope.Salad. It's the one thing that can cause a major battle at the dinner table in most households with toddlers and teens (and maybe even husbands)! So when I came across a business that made salad look sexy and so delicious, and then discovered that they also families with kids, I knew I had to ask them how salad consumption at their mealtimes rated.
