April 2014

Enchanted Bohemian Bohemians are free spirits and thinkers. They like to challenge the normal every day philosophy and arts. Throughout history bohemians have personified a culture and idea. During the first part of the 20th century it was the French philosophers and literary critics that started a revolution. The women followed suit with how they dressed. Paul Poiret challenged the traditional corseted look and created a new exotic woman. Women wore tea gowns in the afternoons. Then Coco Chanel and the flappers came in to produce a new simplified silhouette for the modern active woman. Today, we think of bohemian as the 1960s & 1970s approach to fashion. In this issue we take ideas from all the above eras and combine them with fairytale fashion. We believe the modern bohemian is an enchantress who knows power through fantasy and femininity.

Ahh, Spring is here. Time for adventures and pretty fashion. This issue is dedicated to the magic of style. I love to discover the underground movements in fashion and bring them into the light. Fairytale is a theme I keep seeing from journalists and designers for their runway collections. It is becoming more and more popular to design a line based on folklore. To my delight I have discovered the FAE Nation. It is a whole culture based on Faery Folklore. As a kid I was fascinated with faeries. Probably started with Tinkerbell in Peter Pan. Then I discovered Grimm Fairytales. When I think of woodland weefolk, I dream of flower wreaths and flouncy whimsical dresses. This Spring/Summer join in the Fairytale movement and live out your Once Upon A Time...... Editor In Chief, Heather Sonrisa

Radiant Skin Time to bring your skin out of winter into the Spring Time. Let a little sunshine through your dreary winter look. Slough off the dead layers and let new radiance shine through your face. This April we have chosen some beautiful products that aid in new skin production and lead to a new radiance coming out. Radiant skin is the new trend in caring for your most precious asset - the face. A lot of attention is being given to youthful glow whether your young or have young mature skin. All women want to look their best. So the first place to start is what you personally want to achieve with your Spring look. Age is always a factor but everyone progresses in life differently so you really need to asses your personal skin needs. For twenty to thirty some things fine lines are not really a concern but taking care of your skin now will aid in it not developing those pesky little additions later. For the 40+ sexy mature woman we need to start a serious skin care regimen. Paying attention to the type of skin you have is firstly important: oily, acne, dry, combo, or sensitive are a few of the most prominent factors to consider. I have slightly oily and highly sensitive skin. Next you should consider the pigments in your skin: fair, light, medium, or dark. Within this category are many elements that make up your true skin color. Darker skin tends to not wrinkle or sag as much as lighter skin. I have light skin with lavender and peachy undertones. Now you need to consider any cosmetical concerns you have: acne, eczema, wrinkles, lines, sagging, or rashes. I have occasional breakouts with very small lines on my forehead from sun damage. Here at Marvelous Mode we are constantly being sent Marvelous Beauty Products to test out and review. For Spring we wanted lines that cater to bringing out skin radiance and refreshing Winter skin for Spring. We chose Garnier for cleanser and retinol lift serum, Ahava for skin renewing serum and Peter Thomas Roth for serious hydration relief. These products were a delight and worked beautifully. See the next page for the details and links to get these Marvelous products.

19 The Clean Line of daily facial cleansers is refreshing to the senses and face. They offer exfoliators & cleansers for the different skin types. We loved how the skin glowed after each use.

#Tip: Try using

different ones for morning & night to see just what is right for your skin.

Clean+ Balancing Daily Exfoliator

Clean+ Smoothing Cream Cleanser Clean+ Purifying Foam Cleanser

This skin product is for smoothing & revealing more radiant skin. Retinol works and is healthy for your skin. But patience is needed as it will start taking effect on lines at about 4 weeks. But it is lasting and worth the wait. Be sure to wear spf out in sun as retinol makes the skin sensitive.

Ultra-Lift Target Line Smoothe Tightener + Cream

Vitamin C skin products hydrate tired dry skin. This works while you sleep to reveal refreshed skin.

Ahava has a great product in a little bottle. It immediately refreshes the skin and leaves a feeling of ahhhh.

Celia Birtwell & Ossie Clark

Celia Birtwell & Ossie Clark are known as the go to designer of the stars during the swinging 1960s & 1970s London set. Celia’s romantic fabric designs combined with Ossie’s retro bohemian styles were a match made in fashion heaven. They dressed the original 1970s bohemian couture set of the Stones, Talitha Getty, Marianne Faithful and Paloma Picasso just to name drop a few. Their styles are even more relevant now than then if that is possible. She resumed designing for Uniqlo recently and it sold out in a heart beat. We hope she does more as we love her esthetic. Here are a few of their original designs found at 1st Dibs. Also, visit her site for her vintage finds which sale quickly.

Hair Care & Styling Women have a love hate relationship with their hair. A bad hair day tends to Wreak havoc with our moods and life but remember hats are great for these days. But if wearing a hat is not possible then you might need to make a change if your not happy with your tresses. Winter months put stress on our hair with drying cold weather. In Spring it is time to come out of our caves and brighten our looks. Great hair makes us feel more confident but it won’t get that way without effort on our part. Beautiful hair starts with great hair care. Time to restore and repair stressed out brittle hair. Whether your hair is thin, coarse, fine, thick, curly or unruly you need to condition it. We have chosen to focus on repairing lines and for styling we have chosen strong hold products. I have color treated hair that has been damaged from weather and bad past coloring. Therefore, I need some serious hydrating care like most women. The Hair Color Du Jour has been red. This is the Century of the Red Head. Thank God! I was born with red copper hair and teased about it like alot of you. But now Ravishing Red is the most sought after hair color. BUT it is a difficult color to maintain and care for. We chose hair care lines that are modern and therapeutic. Loreal has a great new line of hair care & styling products that we found were right on target. Next we chose Garnier for our hair color. Lastly, we chose a luxe line that would save color damaged hair - a Parisian Company to the stars Leonor Greyl. See the next page for the products and links to purchase.

Heavenly Hair Products is how we describe Leonor Greyl. A Luxurious hair care line out of Paris. A choice of the top models and Parisiennes. We are in love with this line. It is aromatic, sensual and theraputic.

Our main concern for April was reviving color damaged hair. So we chose products that would rehydrate and protect our newly correclty colored hair. These three were Marvelous to say the least. Wonderful in how they eminated aromtherapy and repaired the hair. Bain Vitalisant B — Gentle Shampoo for Thin / Color-Treated Hair Serum de Soie Sublimateur – Nourishing and Protective Styling Serum

All of these products leave a beautiful lingering light scent in the hair. You will get many compliments.
