A new baby on the way…

Hello MIYU-ettes!

I can’t believe how time flies – as I am writing this, I am only 5 days away from my due date – eek! That’s right, we’re expecting another little one any time now. These past couple years between building MIYU and raising our first born – Emelia (aka Miss E), have been some of the most rewarding years of my life. The challenges are new, and scary at times, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

As I am in full nesting mode, trying to tie up everything home and MIYU-related before the big day, I just wanted to take a moment of pause to reflect how much my family has meant to me through all of this. I literally could not go through all the trials and tribulations without the support of my amazing husband. I am also truly blessed to have a pretty well-behaved toddler.

Miss E has really become my inspiration – she ignites a new desire in me – to make this world a better place for her future. Wouldn’t you want to do everything in your power, to witness this infectious smile?

In fact, because of her, we have started to be more mindful of our packaging – challenging ourselves to create more eco-friendly packaging that minimizes our impact on the environment. It truly is our corporate responsibility to care for our planet, so that our children and grandchildren can continue to thrive. Of course at MIYU, creating packaging that is both beautiful and performance-driven has always been our core. Adding the eco-friendly aspect has its challenges, but what we have found through this journey is that all it takes is a little creativity, to design something both breathtaking and eco-conscious. Our new tea packaging is the first evolution of that – and we cannot wait to share more.

So let me take this time to thank all of you – our family, friends and cheerleaders. Thank you for your continuous support throughout this journey. Thank you for believing in us and celebrating our milestones. We cannot wait to share with you what is next to come…

MIYU Beauty in the Media!


Canadian Living, January 2014

Canadian Living, January 2014


Hello Friends!


Time certainly does fly.  It feels like yesterday we were just getting ready for Christmas holidays.  Now, it’s what, almost Valentine’s Day?  My apologies, for the lack of updates, press-wise, so to summarize, here’s some highlights from the past few months.


First off, as we mentioned waaay back in December, our de-stress mi essence appeared on The Marilyn Denis Show.  For us, it was really exciting to see our baby on the small screen!  Here’s a look if you missed it:

More recently, we were featured in January’s issue of Canadian Living (see above), the #1 women’s magazine in Canada.  How exciting is that?! We certainly think so – but then again, we’re just a little biased!  Not only has MIYU Beauty been featured in US & Canada, where our products are available, we’ve also garnered widespread interest from around the world.  From the UK’s ModMod’s website, to Glamour Italia, and Brazil’s Lilian Pacce – MIYU is hitting the beauty universe by storm!  Not to mention, back in September, we also landed coverage on New York Magazine’s – The Cut!  We’re still jumping up and down from that one.  Of course, we can’t forget to mention our Canadian press – with proud appearances in ELLE Canada, LOULOU Magazine, and Flare.com.  See more of our favourite editorial and blog features, in our press section, on our website.

So, whether it’s a small shout out, a teeny tiny mention, or a feature on television, online, or in print – we’re always sooo proud to see MIYU Beauty introduced to the world.  What we love even more, is hearing that people like you, are enjoying our products.  If you love MIYU, and want to tell us, send us an email – you’ll make our day, for real!


In the meantime, we’ll be sure to keep you posted on all the exciting things we’re working on at MIYU.  For instance, soon, celebrities at an upcoming awards show will receive MIYU Beauty products in their gift bags! Stay tuned to find out more!

MIYU Beauty Launches in North America


After years of top-secret development and behind-the-scenes discussions with industry insiders, MIYU {pronounced mee-you} Beauty is now making its official debut in North America.  Drumroll please!!


As the first lifestyle beauty brand to artfully pair teas with skincare, MIYU expects to revolutionize the industry – aiming to redefine today’s beauty ritual.  Now we’re not saying to ditch your coveted creams and cleansers, but with MIYU’s unique tea and skincare pairings women can now effortlessly pamper their complexions from the inside out, in a delightful way.  What a concept!  At least we like to think so.


Founded by Canadian girl Connie Tai, MIYU’s innovative concept came about while she was living out her childhood dream developing skincare products for leading New York spa and beauty company Bliss spa.  During her time in NYC, Connie started developing skin sensitivities she never had before.  She soon realized the significant impact external factors had on her skin, including: poor diet, lack of sleep and stress.  She’s definitely not alone.  Empowered by this knowledge, Connie set out to create a line of effective products that could nourish the skin from within, while serving as a perfect complement to a healthy lifestyle.


Now enough of the history!  We know you’re dying to see our super cute website. Go to www.miyubeauty.com to check out our debut collection of pretty products, and to find out more about MIYU Beauty.


MIYU products can be purchased at select retail locations across Canada and the United States and soon online through our MIYU Beauty boutique.  Unfortunately, our e-commerce site won’t be up for another week or so, but happy window shopping for now!
