Lazypants


The C&C Girls headed to TNT Hazelton Lanes the other night to the Rebus Productions Ltd. expansion launch of the Lazypants collection which includes items in new washes and colours. Jessie and Leah sopped cocktails provided by Tag Vodka and Smartwater with the who’s who crowd from the media, fashion and retail industries.

Lazypants is already available in 18 different colours and now you can pick up the originals in a variety of acid wash colours. The acid wash design changes colour as the product ages. Every piece will have a slightly different tint as it is an incredibly hard wash to manufacture perfectly. Hoodies are also a new addition and come in both original and acid wash colours. Moving in a more fashion forward direction but continuing with comfort comes the Skinny Lazys. They are comfort and style mixed into one whether you are lying around on the couch or out with friends.

Rebus Productions Ltd. and Lazypants had a fine list of sponsors that made the launch event a huge success: Aidan Shipley, Amsterdam’s 416 Beer, Burt’s Bees, DJs Hippos and Humans, Elle Cuisine, Fold a Sole, Matt Feinstein Photography, Miracle 10, Ovarian Cancer Canada, Revlon, smartwater, T By Daniel, Tag Vodka, The Sweetest Tart, Uber and vitaminwater.

The product is currently available online at www.lpants.com and in select retailers in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, New York and Los Angeles.

Wheat Belly


C&C Girl, Jessie Sulidis has always suffered from food sensitivities and doctors couldn’t explain what was interfering with her digestive system often just resorting to labelling her with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). The IBS medications didn’t seem to work and finally she took advice from a fitness coach and her mother who had recently read the hype about the book Americans are calling the latest breakthrough in Health, Wheat Belly. Jessie decided to follow the book by eliminating wheat and gluten from her diet and has seen the most amazing shocking results in only 2 weeks of the removal.

Renowned cardiologist, William Davis explains how eliminating wheat from your diet can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems.

Millions of North Americans consume food products made of wheat resulting in millions of them experiencing some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges and digestive issues. “After cutting gluten and wheat from my diet I lost about 4 lbs of bloating and water weight that the gluten was storing in my body from being unable to digest properly. I saw the abs and muscle tone I had been working so hard at at the gym since September appear after just 2 weeks of elimination. I don’t get an upset stomach after eating anymore and I can comfortably fit into my tight dresses for a night out without worrying about the belly bloating that came after eating each meal. This has really changed my life and I recommend everyone reading a copy,” said C&C Girl, Jessie Sulidis.

The book Wheat Belly is a step-by-step plan to navigate an enjoyable wheat-free lifestyle by educating you on your transition and process. Millions of men and women have experienced life-changing transformations in their health and overall well-being by say goodbye to wheat.  Check out the book that has all of America talking: http://www.wheatbellybook.com/wheatbellybook/bps/index?keycode=222188

The C&C Girls got to meet and visit with so many unique entrepreneurs and created a favourite list!

 
The event was sponsored by the Colaneri Estate Winery, where they treated C&C Girls' Jessie and Leah with four different Italian inpspired Canadian wines all paired with a delicious cupcake by Trina's Cakes .Colaneri offers an amazing experience on their wine tours and is located at 348 Concession 6 Road, Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The creator gave the girls some samples to take home which they loved the fresh scents and how well the product keeps the skin moisturized through this cold weather change. The beautiful, light, fresh-smelling scents are non-oily, yet full of moisture. Follow them on Twitter: @LOVEFRESH

Healing Sol

The C&C Girls spent the weekend getting pampered at the comfy and elegant Healing Sol spa in their 2500 square-foot home-like facility. The girls found themselves surrounded by fountains, hardwood floors with beautiful leather couches with flowers before being swept away into one of their 5 spa treatment rooms where they received manicures and pedicures. This wasn’t your typical pedicure or in and out treatment you receive at most nail salons. The staff spent the hour really pampering by their 20 minute intensive foot massage followed by paraffin treatment in a massage chair. It’s really the ultimate experience.

The Healing Sol was founded on the principle that beauty isn’t just skin deep. They specialize in providing services beyond aesthetics by offering their clients a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. They help bring balance and inner peace and help you feel and look your best! The spa not only offers the best in manicures, pedicures, waxing, facials and body treatments, they also offer yoga and holistic treatments to help rejuvenate your sole!

This is definitely a perfect Christmas or Birthday gift for mom or your favourite girlfriend! Check out the Healing Sol on facebook and twitter or by visiting their website at: www.healingsol.ca
