Kiss and Makeup isn’t your typical beauty store. An apothecary with a focus on local products and natural beauty regimes, this is one of the hottest beauty experiences around. I’ve heard that celebrities make special jaunts to the new Londsale location while filming in Vancouver, and with the new venue opening in Olympic Village in July, it’s now skytrain accessible. But don’t fret if you can’t come to YVR in person. That’s what the web shop is for.

Le Creuset Introduces Palm FreshLe Creuset Introduces Palm Fresh, this new hue will bring a coastal vibe to every kitchen

Le Creuset is  introducing a brand new crisp shade of green to the culinary world, Palm. This new addition to the classic palette of hues from Le Creuset’s cookware is fun and fresh. The premium French cookware line says Palm is inspired by the fringe of green that divides land and sea.

Palm evokes the feeling of tropical relaxation by the sea. It is the perfect accompaniment for coastal-inspired recipes and fresh summer dishes for entertaining. As Le Creuset’s newest colour, Palm is available this summer across the brand’s complete collection of quality enamelled cookware, bakeware, tableware, tools and accessories.

“Le Creuset was founded by a casting expert and a colouring expert. The company remains true to that foundation and is known to this day for its rich, trendsetting kitchen hues and its ability to offer them in the widest array of product types and materials in a variety of categories.” says Sarin Keusseyan, Marketing Manager of Le Creuset Canada.

The modern coastal inspired hue of Palm is now available across Le Creuset’s collection of quality cast iron, stoneware and accessories priced from $12 to over $600. It is available at Le Creuset boutiques and select kitchen stores across the country.  Please visit for more details.
