Want to WIN a gift certificate valued at $200 from Hair Free Laser Institute? Head over to Fraser Valley Now on Instagram to ENTER. https://www.instagram.com/fraservalleynow

Hair Free Laser Institute - 12 Days of ChristmasThe Hair Free Laser Institute provides medically and FDA approved laser technology for permanent hair reduction using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). This technology is also used for:
• improved skin appearance for Rosacea,
• flushing, sun damage,
• age spots,
• skin texture,
• photo aging which is referred to as Photo Rejuvenation, and
• acne.

Various hand pieces are used with the IPL laser which focus on different levels of the skin where controlled flashes of light penetrate and are absorbed by either the hair follicles or the pigment within the skin. It is usually a series of treatments (8-10) to reach satisfactory results. Individual results may vary.

All areas of the body (except directly around the eyes) can be treated. Treatments are relatively pain free and can be treated quickly. It is effective on all skin types and can be adjusted based on hair color, texture and body location (gray or white hairs will not be destroyed since there is no pigment in those follicles). If you have waxed, plucked or tweezed please wait 4-6 weeks before coming for your treatment.

At the Hair Free Laser Institute, we employ friendly, knowledgeable and certified laser technicians. We strive at earning your business by offering the lowest prices available for IPL technology with our monthly specials and low-price guarantee.

We have 8 clinics, 3 of which are in the Fraser Valley, BC. Our Fraser Valley clinics include:
1) Langley (Walnut Grove – inside the BUHF Beauty Boutique) 20178 – 96th Avenue Langley, BC V2Y 0K1

Want to WIN a gift certificates valued at $25 from Whimsy’s Jewels? Head over to Fraser Valley Now on Instagram to ENTER. https://www.instagram.com/fraservalleynow

Hello Readers!

My name is Sasha Van De Keere. I am the Lead Designer and Founder of Whimsy’s Jewels. At one point in my career, I was a business consultant and travelled regularly across North America. I wanted to find jewelry that was presentable for clients, affordable and wouldn’t tarnish or change colour. Surprisingly, I found this combination really hard to find! Out of frustration, I started to make my own jewelry. After a few months of wearing my jewelry, I found friends and family asking me where they could get the jewelry I was wearing. I was stunned that people wanted to wear the jewelry I created! This was the beginning of my little company.

On July 15th of 2016, Whimsy’s Jewels had begun – a customer inspired, affordable and hypoallergic jewelry company. I chose to have a whimsical flair because the word whimsical means playful, quaint and fanciful. I think everyone of us has an aspect of whimsical to them! I set out to make jewelry that could appeal to many different styles, could be made with higher quality metals so that they could be used for long wear and could be affordable. Our pieces are led and nickel free and range between the prices of $5-$30. We aim to have something for every style and price range.

Customer inspiration is at the heart of what we do. If a customer is the first one to buy a necklace or pair of earrings, we will name it after them! It’s incredible to share in some of the stories of why customers named their pieces what they did. We are constantly doing polls and votes with customers so that we can release new pieces that reflect their hopes and desires.
My personal favorite part of this business is being in markets. There’s nothing I can compare the feeling to being in markets, meeting new people and building relationships with customers. We love being in the community and being part of the weekends to so many people. You can find us at markets anywhere from Coquitlam to Harrison Hot Springs from May to December! Along with markets, we have an online store where you can shop with us at any time of the day. We also only ship for $2 anywhere in Canada!
Thanks so much to the customers we have met for your continued support and love. We couldn’t have done this without you over the last 2 years! And we are SO excited to meet new customers in the future!

Merry Christmas to you and your families!

Want to WIN a gift certificate valued at $25 from Peace & Harmony Naturalz? Head over to Fraser Valley Now on Instagram to ENTER. https://www.instagram.com/fraservalleynow

Peace & Harmony Naturalz - 12 Days of ChristmasPeace & Harmony Naturalz is geared to providing natural, chemical free body care products such as creams, lotions, specialty creams for eczema, soaps, bubble baths, make up, bathbombs as branded items we also carry a variety of body care products, jewelry, serums, EcoSoy candles, gem trees, incense, reclaimed wooden signs and children’s products that are handcrafted by local artisans. We love supporting small local handcrafted businesses. We love to support Community Services Best for Babies program as well as the Abbotsford Hospice Society. It is our goal to bring in a refillery in the near future to help our environment to cut down on waste.

I have been in the natural health industry for 25 years. I’ve been making my own products for myself and friends and family during this time. A couple of years ago my father passed away and I moved in with my mom to help look after her. I was starting to get quite busy with making my products so I decided to look for a small space to manufacture and just sell online. However every time I thought I found somewhere, something happened and it wouldn’t work out and that’s when I said to myself “whatever happens, happens and is meant to be”. As I was driving away from the last place I had looked at, feeling quite defeated I drove past this retail space with a for rent sign in the window and thought what the heck why not call. I met with the landlord the next day (still not thinking about opening a store) we had a great conversation and that’s when I decided to open a retail store. I jumped in head first and I’m so glad I did. I’ve been open for 8 months now and have met so many incredible people, artisans and customers. I’m in my happy place 😁. Along with my own line of products I have many local artisans with theirs as well. I love working with talented, like-minded people and I’m proud to support local small business.

Want to WIN a gift certificate valued at $30 from the Nature’s Pickin’s? Head over to Fraser Valley Now on Instagram to ENTER. https://www.instagram.com/fraservalleynow

Nature's Pickin's - 12 Days of ChristmasBefore moving to Abbotsford, Nature’s Pickin’s became known to us as the “market off the highway”. It was the one stop our family made to pick up buns and deli meat, and fruits and veggies, for our day trip to Cultas Lake or road trip up the Coquihalla. We knew that they had everything we needed to keep us fed and satisfied and it was easy to get all in one place.
As we began to call Abbotsford home, Nature’s Pickin’s quickly became our home market. Still to this day my younger kids call it the goat market as they are thrilled to see goats up on the barn roof to great them. This is a nostalgic feeling for us as we often visit the Coombs Market goats on the roof we we’re on Vancouver Island.

Nature’s Pickin’s has become a regular weekly grocery stop for us since Costco is just down the road. First stopping at Costco for all our large items we need and then off to Nature’s Pickin’s for our fresh produce, dairy, egg’s and my favourite tea from Karla’s Speacialteas. Even my American family always makes a quick stop in on to stock back up on fresh snacks on their way to visit.

I am thrilled to always see Nature’s Pickin’s involved within the community at special events, charity fundraisers and school functions. I even found them serving up the most delicious homemade soup for the racers at the Valley Vertikiller trail race this past Fall on Sumas Mountain. What a welcoming sight after a grueling race.

When Nature’s Pickin’s Market opened their doors in the summer of 2000, their dream was to bring local farmers with their bounty of fresh local fruit and vegetables to a “farmers style market that was available year-round. To add the offerings, Nature’s Pickin’s Market added a deli and a butcher shop featuring local beef, pork and chicken. Doug and Caroline opened their doors with the hope of providing Abbotsford with an abundant variety of Locally Made and Grown products which they have succeeded at. Being strong advocates of supporting local farmers, Nature’s Pickin’s Market works directly with farmers bringing their product in store, the back door is always bustling with deliveries of fresh local produce, from apples, strawberries, and kiwi’s to potatoes, green beans, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and so much more. The 100 Mile Diet, in the Fraser Valley, can be easily taken to task.

From Farm Fresh Produce to Grass Fed Beef raised right behind the market, to the many talented food artisans that create unique products proudly made in the Fraser Valley, Okanagan and Vancouver Island; it is easy to see why supporting Local is a passion for Nature’s Pickin’s.

As the winner of the “We Heart Local” Award for Favourite Store to Buy Local three years in a row, it’s no secret that you will fall in love with the local offerings at Nature’s Pickin’s.

Want to WIN a your own pair of Armidilly arm covers? Head over to Fraser Valley Now on Instagram to ENTER. www.instagram.com/fraservalleynow

Hello Readers, my name is Val.

Armidilly - 12 Days of ChristmasI am a runner and a bit of a fitness nut, living in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia where the weather endorses year-round outdoor exercise. After years of training and races I have worn a variety of athletic apparel, not only for running but for cross training and other sports too.

Armidilly Arm Covers have become one of the mainstays of my active and leisure wardrobe because they are such a versatile accessory. You can wear arm covers with a sleeveless top, short sleeves, or even under a light-weight long sleeve top for extra warmth in cooler weather.

They are designed long enough to cover your knuckles for cold and chilly morning rides, in lightweight fabric for Spring and Summer temperatures, and heavier weight fabric for cooler Fall and Winter temperatures. Select styles have a thumb holes for positioning lower on your hand and sweat cuffs for wiping your sniffles. Other styles include a pocket for your phone, a mesh for breathability or reflective strips for visibility in darker weather.
Armidilly’s are very versatile and are great for men, women and children. They can be worn for pre-activities, such as waiting for your Pilates class to start, for post-activities, like cool down at Yoga, and even at leisure times while enjoying a coffee or smoothie with your exercise cohorts. Sport, dance, golf, and running enthusiasts will love a pair of Armidilly’s as unique as they are.

Best of all Armidilly offers a crazy selection of prints and colours! The fabrics are bought locally and in small quantities so it would be very unlikely for you to see someone with the same Armidilly as you, unless you bought them for a team event.

I encourage you to take some time and have some fun finding the right Armidilly that speaks to you. The unique pattern names are inspired by lyrics of songs played while I designed, cut, and stitched your arm cover together. Perhaps it’s the pattern or the name of your new arm cover that speaks to you, but your active and leisure wardrobe will never be the same.
