Peach Beauty Pick – Tangle Teezer

One thing I have always been very picky about is my hair care products. I have thick, wavy hair that has a tendency to go frizzy without the right serum in it, has great hold when styled and sheds a lot when I brush it – either wet or dry. Lately, I have noticed that my hair has been shedding a lot more than it used to. I don’t know whether it is my age that has changed my hair or that I am putting my mane through more wear and tear these days, but it came to a point where I had to become picky about BOTH my hair products and my hair tools, including my brushes and combs.

Luckily, I was introduced to an amazing new hair care comb through my daytime job as a lifestyle brand publicist. This hair tool that my mane and I met for the first time with delight and never turned back on is the one, the only Tangle Teezer!

TangleTeezer

Tangle Teezer launched recently in Canada at Sephora and was deemed one of the most compact and stylishly innovative hair tools by several prestigious media outlets around the world. After using it for the first time through my damp wavy hair after a wash, I could see why. The comb’s memory flex teeth glided gently through my hair without causing my hair to pull out, break, or painfully detangle the knots. I used my Tangle Teezer a few hours later on my dry hair after I had been outside in windy weather and it gracefully smoothed out my windstruck hair and quickly restyled it with a few brushes of the comb’s bristles. This is why it has remained a permanent fixture on my bathroom countertop.

Aside from Tangle Teezer being extremely gentle and well designed for detangling hair nicely, smoothing out locks and avoids pulling out any strands, the comb is super compact! It can fit into even small purses and can travel easily. The click-on, click-off cover keeps the memory flex teeth clean, dry and protected from any dust particles, dirt or from being bent or damaged. Lastly, it comes in amazing colours – from bright, vibrant shades to sexy leopard patterns – to match your favourite hue or even your personality.

Lastly, it is only $25! For $25, it is well made and you are able to see and feel the quality right away, from the first use.

This hair care tool is definitely a keeper in my collection!

It’s Fall! Time to Get Back to Your Roots

As a proud Canadian, I’ve spent my entire life trying to embrace all seasons, even the coldest ones. Yes, the winters can be harsh, but the fashion can be fabulous. One brand that has been a great cold weather staple and screams Canuck spirit is Roots! Ever since I can remember, I have been a huge Roots girl. From my days as a toddler running around in my matching baby pink Roots sweat suit to sporting my worn-in grey sweatpants with the beaver logo on the thigh at sleepover camp to having my Roots tuffs (the BEST hiking boots) go in and out of style a dozen times in my shoe collection.

Being Canadian and wonderful, Roots has maintained their old-school classics, such as the sweatpants and hoodies dressed in vintage logos, and has incorporated more trendy and dressed up items into the mix. After a recent visit to their store, I fell in love with some of their newest items that would make as wonderful additions to anyone’s closet.

Here are some of The Domestic Peach’s faves for the fall… and winter season, for that matter:

LARCH COAT, $128

This warm tunic jacket feels like you are wearing a sweatshirt but is cut nicely and can be dressed up or down, depending on your outfit.

GALLOWAY CARGO PANT, $88

New Picture (2)

Slip into these pants and it feels like a stretchy yoga pant! Fits like a glove, comes in classic black or a cool cabernet colour, and has interesting detailing, such as fun pockets.

FLANNEL SHIRT TUNIC, $78

New Picture (3)

Nothing is better for fall than a cozy flannel shirt in a plaid pattern. I admit, when this trend came back this year and was reminiscent of 1990s grunge, I was excited.

CALLAGHAN JERSEY HOODY, $52

New Picture (9)

For all of us who have grown up with Roots in the 70s and 80s, this is a great hoodie. It has the vintage worn-in logo on a classic Roots sweatshirt – can’t get much better than this.

FRENCH TASSEL PONGO, $228

New Picture (4)

A new season, so it may be time for a new purse! This crossbody purse is fairly large, has cute tassel and hardware detailing and comes in the perfect autumn colour of Cinnamon.

Perfect Picture Pic – Roses and Candlelight

Last night, I attended a wedding of one of my close friends and celebrated her marrying the man of her dreams. To add to the warm, whimsical feel of the entire evening, all of the guests and I were surrounded by beautiful floral arrangements of pink and soft candlelight. Here is a beautiful part of one of the table centerpieces – different levels of crisp white candles with small vases of faintly pink roses. Gorgeous and classic.

A Pumpkin Pail of a gift!

One thing I am kind of a sucker for is cute home or hostess gift ideas. The presents are always adorable and practical and leave the hostess or new homeowner with a big smile on their face after receiving. A gift idea that is usually a winner in this category are items of the bath, body and home fragrance nature. With Fall only a couple of weeks away, I came across a great gift that is both fall-themed, deliciously scented and comes at a great price point.

It is the Bath and Body Works Pumpkin Pail – Picks from the Patch gift set:

IMG_3341[1]Fall is one of my favourite seasons for themed fragrances, from the sweet scent of pumpkin to the tart twinge of apples to the spice of cinnamon. This amazing 9-piece gift set is $40 and serves up the following fall selections from Bath and Body Works:

Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Body Lotion, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Shower Gel, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Fine Fragrance Mist, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Mini Candle, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Deep Cleansing Hand Soap, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Gentle Foaming Hand Soap, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Mini Candle, Spiced Pumpkin Cider Mini Candle, and Pumpkin-coloured Shower Sponge.
