We received some devastating news about one of our beloved team members a few weeks ago. Sadie, one of our Waxxers, was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.

Who is Sadie, and why should you help her? Sadie is an unbelievable woman, a ball of energy and exuberance, a wonderful mother and wife, an amazing employee, a kind and loving Esthetician, a cherished friend, and the daughter of a breast cancer survivor. When Sadie told us that she had cancer, we were stunned and heartbroken. Sadie? It almost seems impossible that such a force to be reckoned with could fall victim to such an insidious disease. Sadie said when she found out: “Cancer is so prevalent in my family. I always knew I would get it. I just didn’t know it would be when I was 36.”

Sadie is wife to Mikey and the mother to 2 beautiful daughters, Irelynd, 12 and Sam, 10. Our wish is for Sadie to be able to spend the next 6 months focusing on getting healthy through the aggressive rounds of chemotherapy and radiation and her double mastectomy. All donations will go to covering her hefty medical expenses.

Thank you for your time and your generosity. To know Sadie is to love her. Her smile is quick and contagious. Her heart is huge and pure. Her energy is unmatched. If anyone can kick cancer’s butt, it’s Sadie.

So, how can you help to support Sadie?

  • Visit and share Sadie’s page on www.youcaring.com.  It is so easy to share this crowd funding page on your twitter or Facebook feeds!
  • Come visit Urban Waxx on October 11, 2016! It is Sadie Day, and all proceeds from all locations will go to Sadie and cancer research.
  • Visit your local Urban Waxx from now until October 31 to purchase a raffle ticket. There will be 2 winners announced. One will win $720 for a year of Brazilians (or anything else you would like to spend it on) and the other winner will win a year of brows! All proceeds will go directly to Sadie!

Thank you for your support. The Urban Waxx 6th Core Value is “We are Family” and this is a time when Sadie really needs her Urban Waxx family to rally around her!

Obsessing over Beaute Nouveau!

I love products. Like, LOVE products. I am forever on the hunt for lines that not only do I believe in, but that actually deliver what they say they will do. Enter Lacey Haegen and her absolutely perfect line, Beaute Nouveau.

I was introduced to Lacey by my dear friend and fellow Lady Boss, Meghan Hamilton. She owns the totally adorable Glam Beauty Bar in Vancouver, WA. If you are in the area, go there! Anyway, Meghan and Lacey go waaaay back, and one day Meghan gifted me with one of Lacey’s products. It was an orange cream rinse for the body. I was immediately taken with the smell of this gorgeous body balm. I literally ran home and got in the shower and tried it out. The product was AMAZING! Before you get out of the shower, you take a scoop of this creamy, gorgeous balm, spread it all over your body, rinse off a second, and then step out of the shower. The results: totally smooth, moisturized skin all day.

I was smitten! The next day I reached out to Meghan and she told me that Lacey was in town for a training! Ahh, I love when things work out like that. I met with Lacey that day, and I fell in love with her, too! She is delightful, and she has been in the beauty business forever. It took her 6 years to perfect her line, and I think it was completely worth the wait.

Since then, we have stocked all locations with the Beaute Nouveau line. Also, I went from using 25 different things on my face and body to JUST the Beaute Nouveau line. I wanted to see if I really loved and believed in the products and I can say without a shadow of a doubt: I DO! I love the smells, they leave my skin glowing, and they are completely natural, which I love.

You will die when you try them! Die of happiness in a sweet smelling cloud!
