How Nick Chavez stays on top of his hair game

Nick Chavez returns to The Shopping Channel today with his 4-Piece Diva Glamour Collection at an amazing Today’s Showstopper price of only $47.99.

One way this hair maestro stays on top of his game is by still working in his salon, cutting and styling client’s hair. By interacting with clients Nick Chavez continuously learns what women want when it comes to their hair and this helps him develop the best products for them and for you for each visit to The Shopping Channel.

Oily? Dry? Normal? Determining your skin type tips from Scott Vincent Borba

A question I hear often is “How do I determine my skin type?” After all, this is a question that needs to be asked and answered when you desire healthy, youthful and glowing skin.

There are several easy things you can look at to determine your skin type. If your forehead and nose tend to get shinier later in the day, and your cheeks and chin look dry you have a classic t-zone, combination skin. If you tend to flake and look dry you are most likely a dry skin type.

Normal skin is skin that doesn’t get too oily or too dry. A good test you can use is to pat a tissue on your face and look at the amount of oil and sweat that comes off. The pattern on the tissue and the amount of moisture collected is usually a good indication of your skin type.

Have your own skincare question? Tune into The Shopping Channel on Friday for my BORBA Skincare shows. From deep-wrinkle fighting formulations to lip balms with nutraceutical benefits, I’ll have an exciting line-up that will change the way you think about skincare.

See you Friday,

Small seasonal updates for your home

Category: What's hot in Home

When the seasons change, its not just fashion that needs updating. Home designers also focus on a rich, warmer palette. We know it’s not likely that you’re going to redecorate your whole house every season, but there are some small changes you can make to bring that warmth to your house, without the expense of a complete redecoration project.

(1) Paint
If you have a neutral space, why not add some punch with an accent wall? Paint is the least expensive way to create a dramatic impact. And while we love open, airy spaces in summer, in winter people want warmth and coziness. A single wall in a rich deep tone can help create that cozy atmosphere.

(2) Lighting
During those long summer evenings, you may not have needed much lighting in your rooms. But it will soon be dark by 6 o’clock and you’ll definitely have the lights on more times than not. Make sure you have a variety of light sources in a room (sconces, table lamps, floor lamps and overhead lighting) and in work spaces, ensure you have task lighting. If you have not done so already, change all your bulbs to CFLs for greater energy efficiency.

(3) Slipcovers, cushions & throws
Even if you’re not looking to invest in new upholstery, you can update the look of your sofa with a slipcover. They’re removable and washable, so you’ll have no worries when you spill that hot cocoa!

I love nothing better than coming home after work, running a bath and curling up on my sofa in my PJs with a throw and the new season of my favourite show. It’s easy to update your room by simply adding a throw pillow here and there and a soft, luxurious throw.

(4) Accessories
You don’t have to keep everything out at once. Even in my small apartment, I put away some accessories and rotate objects season-to-season. You’ll be amazed how much more you appreciate your possessions when you move them around or put them away for a short while. When they’re out, in the same spot, for too long, you simply become blind to them.

In Fall, I like to fill vases with branches and create autumnal arrangements using natural accents like pine cones, dried corn, ornamental gourds or pumpkins. Candlelight goes hand in hand with winter nights and I love a fragrant candle to conjure a warm atmosphere. Of course, never leave candles burning unattended.

Happy decorating!

O on the Go: Rogers Chinese Lantern Festival

I just love breathing in culture in the city of Toronto. I know, I know, that’s not the only thing I am breathing in, but regardless of the smog and pollution, the Rogers Chinese Lantern Festival is a reason to visit the cool waters of Ontario Place.

With only one week left to visit the festival, I headed down to enjoy bright lights, architecture and a little history 101 refresher on the many structures of the world. Paris, India, Russia and the Artic, the Rogers Chinese Lantern Festival is a great way to explore the world at the footsteps of Toronto, Ontario.

The festival also features a world of animals, dinosaurs, and marine life, as well as a special glimpse at some of the world’s architectural wonders. 32 majestic sets will take you around the world in 80 minutes, as each continent bursts forth in the brilliant form of these intricately designed, colossal displays.

To find out times that it is open visit http://www.chineselanternfestival.ca/

Some of those ferocious dinos reminded me a bit about my co-hosts. Decide for yourself!
