    • Friday Fix: Exfoliate, Rejuvenate, & Repeat

      They say that the face is the 'Entryway to the Self'. Well ladies, that's a LOT of pressure on our hands(and cheeks).

      Being that our face is the first thing people see and the last thing they remember, it has always been a priority here at Odabash HQ to discover and share the latest on how to keep our 'Entryway to the Self' looking fresh & pampered. Melissa, being the beauty & skincare maven that she is, resides on the front lines when it comes to the newest potions, and we get to hear it from her first. Her latest obsession? The exfoliate foaming cleanser, by suki® skincare.

    • Monday Motivation: The Yummy Mummy

      What could be more motivating on a Monday morning when you can't get out of bed to make your personal training session than thinking about the women who have still done all of the above with a child or two in tow!

    • Friday Fix: A Gift From Mother Nature

      Well, we don't know about you, but as amazing as summer is it does come with a few pitfalls.

      Whether that's skin drying out from the warm weather (in theory - because someone NEEDS to remind August that it's MEANT to be sunny and hot!), getting itchy stings thanks to the wasps who fancy a sip of your Pimm's or getting those dry heels which seem to emerge as soon as we start wearing any form of summer sandal - the struggle is real ladies!

      However, this summer these worries have been a thing of the past for Melissa and she has kindly let us in on her secret - Pommade Divine's Nature's Remedy Balm which has 'been taking care of generations of families since 1800' and helps to soothe, protect and repair any dry or sensitive skin as well as reducing the chances of scarring.
      It sounds like just what we need!

    • Monday Motivation - The Blogger Body

      This week's Monday Motivation has taken on somewhat of a Monday Muse theme, as we have been inspired by two of our favorite fashion bloggers who were both looking fabulous in their Odabash swimwear this weekend!

      Not only do these ladies have wardrobes to die for - including some staple Melissa Odabash pieces naturally, but they also have the fabulous bikini bodies show the swimwear looking at it's best.

      Looking at these stunning holiday snapshots from Rosie Londoner and In The Frow this morning fortunately helped us to put down the mid-morning biscuits and pick up a handful of seeds instead as thanks to these lovely ladies we now we have the motivation of real women, showing us that achieving a smoking bikini body IS possible.

    • Friday Fix: The Ultimate Summer Survival Kit

      Are you ladies as fond of the Birchbox craze as much as we are?

      Developed by two fierce, female Harvard Business School entrepreneurs Katia Beauchamp and Hayley Barna, the idea for a monthly subscription box full of sample-sized beauty products was born. For those of us that do most of our shopping online and don't have the time to hit the nearest Sephora (our favorite) to test something out, this box full of luxe products is the answer. They even go as far as customizing the goods, based on your beauty profile. Whether you have curly or straight locks, dry or combo skin, they select the best for you and only you. We absolutely love that. Because let's face it, beauty comes in so many facets.

    • Monday Motivation - Factor in the Essential Fats

      This week's Monday Motivation discusses the importance of including essential fat in your diet and way to do that this lunch time (or any other lunchtime) to start your week right!
      Here at Odabash Head Office we try to stay on the straight and narrow and have a salad for lunch whenever possible, particularly on a Monday, after all, how else will we ease our conscience after a weekend of eating ALL the wrong things? Oops.

      Recently we decided to spice things up and use a different source of protein in our lunch-time salads and as a result it's fair to say we are now all pretty addicted to... MACKEREL.
