A Wonderful Start to the New Year as MIYU Beauty goes North America wide at Anthropologie


Happy New Year lovelies! We hope you had a wonderful and well-rested holiday!


To kick off 2016, we’re proud to announce MIYU Beauty is now available in all Anthropologie stores in North America, including Canada, the U.S., Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.


Anthropologie New York City


We had the pleasure of finding out the incredible news while Connie and her family were back in Edmonton, Canada for the holidays. Note: that’s where I (Linda) am too :).


Check out Miss E’s adorable little cheeks as she watches the descent into Edmonton’s snowy city.



Since Connie was in town for the holidays we decided to visit the local Anthropologie store together. We happened to know Anthropologie would be carrying our beauty essence minis at all their North American locations soon, but we didn’t know exactly when… so… as you can imagine.. it was pretty exciting for us when we spotted our beauty essence minis on store shelves.


Anthropologie Edmonton


From the start, Connie has always dreamed of having her products carried at Anthropologie. With their gorgeously curated beauty collection – we think it’s definitely a perfect fit for MIYU.


Anthropologie Calgary


What a wonderful experience for Connie, her husband (he’s the guy who does all our MIYU photography), and myself, to share as a team. Of course, we couldn’t help but admire our beauty essence minis a half a dozen times more before we finally left the store.



Our de-stress mi and hydrate mi beauty essence minis can be found in over 200 Anthropologie stores across North America as part of Anthropologie’s beauty “smalls” collection. Full size beauty essences and teas can be purchased on or as always on



Cheers to a fabulous start to the New Year and may 2016 bring many more amazing MIYU milestones!

Warming up with a little tea tasting at Jacob & Sebastian…

Why hello lovelies!


Hope you’ve been staying warm and enjoying your week so far.  This post is long overdue, but I wanted to introduce to you one of our favourite retail partners – Jacob & Sebastian!  Last Saturday, we did a little tea tasting event at their Distillery District location (their other location is at Queen West) – and boy, was there a happy holiday buzz going on in their store.  The annual Toronto Christmas Market at the Distillery was going on as well, which brought in a lot of people, all looking for unique holiday gift ideas.  Check out Jacob & Sebastian’s storefront (above) – isn’t it just beckoning you to enter?


If you aren’t familiar with Jacob & Sebastian (although if you live in Toronto, you really ought to be!), I’ve done a short little Q&A with Joel Dart, the founder of this fabulous beauty boutique…
JandS IMG_2930



Connie:  What made you decide to start Jacob & Sebastian?

Joel:  I started Jacob & Sebastian after extensive travel and after the realization that the world really does have great product offerings that just aren’t readily available here in Toronto. After some preliminary sourcing, the ball just started rolling and eventually, I found a great collection of niche-market, unique beauty finds that I believe have a spot in the medicine cabinets of beauty savvy Torontonians.


Connie:  What kinds of products can people expect when they come to your boutique?


Joel:  People can expect to find high-quality, more unique products when they enter Jacob & Sebastian.  These are the types of products that you might see in magazines and wonder, “where can I buy that?” We really strive to try out and test everything in-store firsthand, so you can be assured that we truly believe in the lines that we carry.


Connie:  We are thrilled that Jacob & Sebastian now offers MIYU products.  What is your favourite MIYU product and why?


Joel:  Personally, I have crazy sensitive skin, which breaks out in hives randomly and I have found the de-stress mi beauty essence really helps to calm this hypersensitivity. I also love the taste of the de-stress mi beauty tea, so that has to be a close runner up!


There you have it ladies and gents – if you’re looking for some hard-to-find luxe beauty items, be sure to stop by their store! I know I’ve been a big fan since the beginning!


Now if you were at the store last Saturday, you would’ve been greeted with the little tea station I set up at the front of their store.  A little hot tea to warm up cold shoppers – what a great idea!

And yes, I brought a chair to sit for a bit – being 8 months pregnant is not so kind on the feet :).

Shown below is our pretty MIYU products, sitting front and center of the Jacob & Sebastian store…

At the end of the afternoon, the hubby picked me up and we headed home… but not without a short stroll through the Toronto Christmas Market.  Oh how I wish we could’ve stayed longer if it wasn’t so cold!

Meet Andrea… Owner of Ivory Noir Salon

Happy November MIYU-ettes!  The past few months since our launch in August have been incredible! Thank you to all of our incredible supporters and partners thus far, for believing in MIYU Beauty and helping us spread the love.


Over the next while we’d like to introduce you to some of the faces behind MIYU’s partnerships.  One of our original launch partners, Ivory Noir Salon in Edmonton, Alberta Canada has been a MIYU supporter since the beginning.  Salon owner Andrea Nguyen truly believes in MIYU’s inside-out concept and really wanted to bring the MIYU experience to Edmonton’s first colour-correction studio.  Get an amazing new do while sipping on MIYU’s delicious teas – could you ask for anything more?! Read on to find out about Andrea’s passionate dream to open her own business, her expert advice to perfect hair, and why MIYU Beauty and Ivory Noir Salon, make the perfect match.



Linda: Hi Andrea!  Thanks for taking the time to chat with me today.  First of all, congrats on recently celebrating Ivory Noir Salon’s first year anniversary.  Tell us what your motivation was for opening your own salon?


Andrea: With the skill set of being a stylist for 12 years combined with the knowledge of being a colour educator with Wella, I found myself rapidly building a loyal clientele from correcting mishap hair colour. When the time came for me to open a salon, the only motivating factor to me was to be Edmonton`s first colour correction salon. Nothing is more rewarding than righting a wrong especially with hair, and making someone feel beautiful again.


Linda:  Absolutely!  With that said, what’s your best hair styling tip?


Andrea: Curling hair can give your style longevity in between washes. Curls also allow more versatility and ease when putting hair up in a bun, ponytail, low side swept dos etc.  For winter months curling hair can also help combat static too.


Linda: What hair product could you absolutely never live without?


Andrea: Hairspray!!!


Linda: Which hair trend do you want to come back, and which do you wish never happened?


Andrea: Love 50`s hair that reminisce Marilyn Monroe.  Wish mullets and 90`s fan bangs never happened.


Linda:  I wish I could say I never sported the fan bang!  All in the past though, right :)? Moving on… MIYU Beauty focuses on beauty from the inside out, how do you think this concept applies to healthy hair?


Andrea: Health of hair is very dependent on nutrition. We have seen people that are extreme dieters, or vegans that struggle with hair loss due to lack of protein, iron etc.  MIYU`s concept is so parallel to what we believe to be true for healthy hair.


Linda: Leading to my next question, why did you want to partner with MIYU Beauty?


Andrea: MIYU to us, is a business built from passion, devotion, integrity, and a brand that is unique. Being a new business ourselves we thought it was a perfect pairing to support a local entrepreneur that is also focused on building a successful branded business.


Linda:  The feeling is mutual!  Ok, so what’s your favorite way to unwind after a long day at work?


Andrea: I always look forward to going home taking a hot shower, changing into pajamas, eating my husband`s home cooked dinner and cuddling with my dogs Kumi and Kobe.


Linda:  Awww.  Finally, what’s your favourite life quote?


Andrea: I LOVE quotes and have so many that I live by.  The one that drives me every day and one that has been my mantra is…“Where there’s a will there’s a way!”


Linda: We couldn’t agree more!!  Thanks Andrea for sharing your thoughts with us today, and for believing in MIYU Beauty!


MIYU Beauty’s hydrate mi & de-stress mi teas are available for $16 at Ivory Noir Salon in Edmonton.  With the holidays just around the corner, MIYU teas make the perfect gift for “mi” & for you.


All the best!
