7. All You Are Robes
Wrap mom up with something to make her feel comfortable, confident, and sexy. It's time to acknowledge that no robe exists in the market today that is feminine, flattering and still fully functional. Either it's a factor of clinginess, slinkiness, or bulkiness -- there's always something in the way making robes not the most practical loungewear item for reality. All You Are is here to change that. Designed for life, the collection of robes is inspired by women who wake up every morning and choice by choice give the absolute best of themselves all day. Founder, Kena Paranjape, set out to design the robe she wanted -- one that was chic after a shower or over your PJs but still worked with and enhanced your life. She's talking slim sleeves, a built-in belt, and a fabric that is cozy and comfortable enough yet never clingy. The All You Are robe was designed for flipping pancakes, playing with kiddies, opening the front door, and spending a lazy Sunday in.
"Mothers work so hard to create and cultivate our family nests. Our robe was designed with them in mind...so that they can do the things they do so well with ease and also feel as beautiful as they truly are while doing them." says Paranjape.
The Robe - $125
A built-in belt defines your waist and never gets lost.
Slim, three-quarter length sleeves won’t get in your way.
Deep pockets are functional without the added bulk.
100% cotton French Terry (sweatshirt material!) is absorbent and cozy but not clingy.
And a secret message under the cuff (your possibilities are endless) is a reminder of All You Are.
Fits true to size.
8. Pretty in the City - Give the gift of glamour this Mother's Day with Toronto's first lash and brow bar.
At Pretty in the City, their artists are highly skilled at creating natural looking sets of lash extensions that last. When done right, lash extensions are every girl's best accessory. Using special tweezers to apply lash extensions expertly to each individual natural lash, PIC's extension sets will allow you to wake up look effortlessly gorgeous every day, without ever appearing over-done. While they offer several different services for lashes, such as the Classic Natural set and Volume Superlush set, our favourite option for spring/summer is the new Hybrid set. Pretty in the City's Hybrid lash extensions are a combination of the Classic and Volume sets— creating beautiful and noticeable results, without being over the top.
Microblading is a relatively new technique to North America. Using a manual hand tool, your artist will etch a pattern of lines that mimic your own hair growth pattern while implanting pigment simultaneously. The result: natural looking brows that blend in with your existing brow hairs, and that require virtually no maintenance. With Pretty in the City being voted one of the best places for microblading in Canada and Toronto by Fashion Magazine and BlogTO, you know you're in the best of hands.
Ombre Powder Brows
Ombre Powder brows are just the opposite of a hair stroke brow done with the microblading technique. The end result is a soft powder shaded effect, much like the look of using brow powder. The artist is able to control the amount of colour deposited, from very light and soft colour, to much more bold, saturated colour. This technique is done with a permanent makeup machine. If you want soft, consistent pigment all summer long, Ombre Powder brows are for you! Or, if you can't decide between Ombre Powder or microblading services, and you want a softly shaded brow as well as individual hair strokes, opt for the combination brow, which uses both techniques for optimal results.

She is a bestselling author and health expert for North America's leading publications, television and radio shows.
It began in 2003 when McCarthy embarked on her own healing journey as she had been struggling with symptoms of hormonal imbalance for five years. Even though she embraced a 'healthy' lifestyle, she was still dealing with thinning hair, dry skin, digestion issues and irregular periods. After years of following a conventional medical approach, it was at that point when Joy chose a different path that would transform her life.
In 2006, she continued on her healing journey and it became clear that in order to fully heal, she needed to leave her high-stress career in marketing, and fully embrace her passion, and enrolled in the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. Throughout the three years of study, she started blogging to inspire people beyond her immediate circle and and in 2009 Joyous Health was born.
By 2013 Joy had grown the business and was now taking on clients consulting, touring the country speaking at various industry events as an expert, and developed her own line of products. She also launched her first online program, Joyous 10-Day Detox; a line of natural and organic body care; and, most importantly, her husband Walker joined the team full-time. He left his corporate job selling fancy cars and returned to his entrepreneurial roots to join Joy in the day-to-day efforts of running Joyous Health. By 2014 Joy finished her first book, Joyous Health: Eat and Live Well without Dieting. It was published, and became a best-seller. This book was a celebration of real food, life and proving that healthy eating can be delicious. In 2015 Joy and Walker welcomed Vienna Beate The Jordan into the world, and joy continued to inspire and motivate in the kitchen, and was creating more deliciousness so my whole family will be well-nourished. Joy then launched her second book, Joyous Detox, and is filled with recipes to help readers feel energized, bloat-free and gorgeous helping them break away from sugar, dairy and gluten.
Joy continues to live in Toronto with her husband Walker and their daughter Vienna. Her passion and excitement for helping people live healthier, happier lives comes across in everything she does.
