Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day with the gift that keeps giving~Furmont Chrismouse

In light of today being Random Acts of Kindness Day, we wanted to introduce you to Furmont Chrismouse.  The ultimate random acts of kindness gift.

We recently interviewed Tracy Vincze, the co- creator of Furmont Chrismouse- the new craze this holiday season! Recently featured in Neighbours magazine and developed to encapsulate the true spirit of giving, Furmont Chrismouse reminds us that real magic can be found in the small, thoughtful gestures we extend towards others.

As a young girl, Tracy tells us how she exchanged trinkets and treasures with her parents. This shared tradition was the source of so much joy. It was never about monumental gifts but the quality time spent together to make long- lasting memories

A few years ago as Tracy was scouting for Christmas gifts, she got caught up in the frenzy and chaos of shopping and the budding stress led to a pivotal moment of self- realization. In the midst of rushing around she asked, “Why am I doing this?” and more importantly, “Who is this for and what really matters?” After pausing, taking a few deep breaths and determining the purpose of what she was doing, her perspective shifted. As a result, the concept of Furmont was born.

Chrismouse symbolizes how great things come in small packages. It speaks to the kid in you by encouraging a fun and creative side that makes the holidays much more memorable and special. Customers have personalized their ornament to include heartfelt notes from Santa to funny coupons for movie nights or family time. They have tucked in vintage family heirlooms passed down between generations and one gentleman even plans to propose with an engagement ring hidden inside his! Furmont Chrismouse emphasizes the importance of intangible things that genuinely connect us to others.  You are essentially creating an experience and gifting a story within each ornament. How cool is that!

Tracy has already seen the positive effects in her children who have contributed various ideas to the end product. “They are mindful of others and their involvement has influenced them to spread more compassion.” She has always believed generosity and kindness are antidotes to alleviate stress thus Furmont unites her nostalgia for a simpler time with a commitment to giving back to the community in which she was raised. $1 from each sale will go towards the Oakville Food Bank.  The whole concept of Furmont immediately resonated with Pretty in Pink Spa Owner, Sonia Imerti, who also donates to various organizations. To continue the charitable mission Pretty in Pink Spa will also donate $1 dollar from every purchase to her local charity of choice –Food4Kids.ca organization.

Stop by the spa to meet Furmont the Chrismouse or purchase yours directly online at Pretty in Pink Spa.  We know you will fall in love with Furmont like we have!

Pretty In Pink Spa Studio™ Brings Holiday Cheer to patients at The Hospital for Sick Children

Toronto, December 20, 2013 – Clinic visits and hospital stays can be a challenge for any child, but more so during the holiday season. This week, Pretty in Pink Spa Studio helped bring a little holiday cheer to The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), working with the Child Life team to brighten up the morning for a few young patients and their families. Child Life programs help promote a positive hospital experience for children through the coordination of activities and entertainment for patients and their families.

“We wanted to create a meaningful bonding experience for these patients and their families – to bring some pre-holiday excitement and relaxation their way,” says Sonia Imerti, Pretty in Pink founder and mother of two. “The morning turned out to be one of the most rewarding experiences to date for us. It was deeply inspiring to be a part of these girls’ lives for just one day. Seeing their smiles and knowing that we had something to do with that, was priceless.”

As part of their ongoing community ‘give-back’ programming, Sonia and the Pretty in Pink Spa team collaborated with Child Life Specialists at SickKids to bring some of the Spa’s exclusive services, entertaining programming, positive energy and spirit of well-being to these young patients and their families. Pretty in Pink staff treated Melanie, age 10, Tori, age 17 and Christina, who celebrated her 14th birthday on that day, to mini manicures and facials, engaging with them through crafts and themed activities focused on the spirit of the season.

From making personal keepsake organic peppermint lip balms to indulging in warm organic dark chocolate facials, the girls’ smiles and laughter spoke volumes – the morning was about having fun, singing and swapping stories with their new friends.

For Sonia and her team, the morning event was much more than just about providing spa services to the girls. It was about the time they got to spend with some SickKids patients making them happy just with their presence, getting down to their level to laugh with them and encouraging everyone in the room to let their inner child out to play.

 Pretty in Pink Spa Studio is an award-winning all-natural spa for young girls – and the important women in their lives. A champion of empowerment through healthy, natural living, the Spa is leading the charge in the development of a more holistic approach to personal care for girls and women. Sonia Imerti is actively involved in the GTA and surrounding community and is committed to giving back through multiple endeavours and events that contribute to the success and well-being of girls and women.

High Diamond Makes High Impact

High Diamond Makes High Impact

Message of Being True to Yourself Has Impact on Oakville Girls at Pretty in Pink Spa Event

High Diamond at Pretty in PInk SpaOakville, ON – December 4, 2013: Local celebrities, Catina and Angela Duscio, known as High Diamond, brought a positive message of confidence, inspiration and perseverance to girls in Oakville on Saturday, inspiring them to shine bright every day.

Sonia Imerti, owner of Pretty in Pink Spa Studio in Oakville felt she had to bring High Diamond’s positive message to young girls.

“Bullying and low self-esteem is so predominant with young girls today and it is a conversation that needs to take place on an ongoing basis in a safe and open environment,” says Imerti. “When I first learned of High Diamond’s struggles with bullying as they worked to make their dreams come true, I knew it was a message that would resonate with so many. Catina and Angela really engaged the girls in discussions about bullying and staying true to their dreams and you could see that it had an impact.”

Throughout the evening, attendees were treated to three songs – Broken, DreamGirl and Dance It Away, a song about bullying – and were encouraged to share their own stories of how bullying has impacted their lives and how they are looking for ways to live their dreams despite the negative comments and influences.

High Diamond at Pretty in Pink Spa Oakville“High Diamond was awesome! I thought it was cool that they shared their stories about being bullied when they were young,” says Josée, Age 9. “To hear that they were bullied and now are living their dreams made me feel hopeful. I want to do what they are doing when I grow up.”

Josée’s mom, Kelly, was thrilled with the event. “My daughter has wanted to be a singer for years, so I knew she’d love meeting High Diamond. But when the first words out of her mouth were about the girls’ struggles with bullying and how they listened to her stories, I knew that the event would have a lasting impression on my daughter.”

It seems like the girls from Oakville inspired High Diamond as well. Their new twitter hashtag – #imallergictogossip – was inspired by one of the girls Keira, age 9, who shared that when friends try to share gossip, she just says, “I’m allergic to gossip.”
