Pulse Spotlight, Sept. 21/09 – Milica *Giveaway*

Sunday, September 20th, 2009

One of the Fraser Valley’s first upscale salon spas is located in Walnut Grove, Langley.  Now in their 12th year of business, Milica SalonSpa is a true entrepreneurial success story!

Michelle Ateb has worked as a stylist for 26 years.  Eleven years ago, she noticed that in order to get a high end salon experience, one had to travel outside of the Fraser Valley. Craving this type of establishment close to home, with expert stylists and real china cups for serving tea, Michelle opened a small upscale salon with 3 other stylists.  Seven years later they would move to Milicas current location, which now includes a full service day spa and employees more than 35 stylists, make up artists, Registered Massage Therapists, nail technicians and more!

The full service salon at Milica is always hopping!  Their late hours (9:30PM close Tuesday – Thursday) probably has something to do with that – how wonderfully convenient for busy parents/commuters.  Michelle has some great awards under belt – last year she placed 2nd (only by ONE point) in the Trend Zoom Photo Submitted Work.  This year she is a finalist for the BC Stylist of the Year Award, and the Canadian Master Colourist of the Year Award.  Go Michelle!!!

What’s your favourite spa service?  We (the women AND the men on our team) love a good massage or facial treatment, both which are amazing at Milica.  We are thrilled to share that Milica is offering one of our lucky subscribers The Eminence Organic Facial!  75 minutes of pure bliss, your skin and your soul will thank you. To enter, please leave a comment on this post.  The winner will be chosen on September 30th.  Good luck – we are so jealous!  If you don’t want to keep this for yourself, which we think is nuts but to each their own (hee hee), the holidays are coming -what a great gift!!!!

As an ADDED BONUS to FVP readers – those who book an Eminence Organic Facial at Milica, and let the receptionist know they heard about this promo on FraserValleyPulse.com, will receive an Eminence Organic Skincare Serum ($46 value, while supplies last).  Limited supplies, so book quickly! The Eminence Organics line is handmade in Hungary, using only fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables.  We’ve tried the serums and they are magical. We just picked up an Eminence Sour Cherry Masque from Milica as well – what a difference it made to sun-parched skin after the glorious summer sunshine :)

Forwarding-thinking entrepreneurs like Michelle are a huge part of what make our Fraser Valley so great!  Congratulations on Milica‘s success, Michelle!
