October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and we put together a cute pink set as our survival kit this month! $6.80 from each kit sold will be donated to Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. This weekend is the last to pick up this set, so don’t miss out! They make great gifts too! :) In the set you will find a Sweet Cheeks face mask in powder form (mix it yourself with water, yogurt, tea or cleansing milk for instance), Pink Marshmallows Body Butter, a Pink Sugar Bath Treat and a Pink Peony Bar Soap.
Speaking of all things pink… ModCloth has put together this fantastic set of pink dresses! I can see at least 5 dresses and one pair of shoes that I want! :D Haven’t tried ModCloth yet? You should! Fast shipping, adorable clothes, friendly service and great prices! Me love!
This fall we said goodbye to two girls that has been with us for a long time! So sad!
Julia, who started helping me out back in 2004 when it was only me working in the shop, left us to go back to school. She is now taking biology (my kind of girl!) and psychology at Memorial University here in St. John’s, and she is doing great! Congrats on those fantastic mid term results Jules!! :). Always so much fun to be around, and our fashion icon. Beautiful, smart and funny! We will miss her sooo much!
Andrea started working with us in 2007, and from the get go she was a product making machine! She had a background in the restaurant business, and you could tell the way she was cranking out products! She is as hilarious as she is gorgeous and we will miss her dearly! I am so proud of what she wants to do in the future, so I almost forgive her for leaving us :) Here we see her practising her famous Hollywood-Movie-Star-accepting-her-Oscar smile! Love you Andrea!
The only good thing with goodbyes is the hellos that will follow. Two new girls has joined us, and they are fitting right in with the rest of the crew! We are so happy to have you aboard Chantelle and Andrea!! We asked them to tell us a bit about themselves, so here we go:

Hello Chantelle and Andrea! Goodbye Julia and Andrea!
Happy Friday! This Fabulous Friday we have the favorite of one of our customers! Stephanie Ralph emailed me about our Whipped Sugar in the Sweet Cream scent:
Just wanted to let you know about one of my favourite products (hard to pick a favourite, I LOVE them all!). It’s from the Smoothie line, Sweet Cream is my favourite scent, it has a soft, romantic and pretty feel to it, makes me feel good when I’m wearing it. My Fav product in the line is the whipped Sugar. I have always had dry elbows, and feet, and I have tried everything, with no success. I keep a jar of this in the shower and use it on my feet, elbows, and legs, and it makes everything soo soft. I just love it, and smells amazing to boot. As an added bonus my husband uses it to clean his hands after a long (dirty) day at work as welder and it works wonders (and it doesn’t have a harsh smell like other cleaners he has used). I hope you found my tips useful, especially for the men in our lives :).
Lots of love to all the ladies of TVAL, your awesome!

If you have a favourite product you want to share with the rest of our Tvål family, email me a little write up about it (why you like it, how you use it, etc).
