If you’re looking for an out-of-this-world unique salon experience, Intelligent Nutrients doesn’t disappoint. Located on Level 1 South, their new flagship store is a treat for all the senses. All products are organic, with various certifications from their countries of origin.
I’ve heard you can actually EAT their hair products and be fine. However, they don’t recommend it… the products won’t taste very good. The point is you could because they’re totally chemical free!
They recently added full salon capabilities to their menu of services. All the hair products are either organic or the lowest chemical options available.
Women’s Haircut – $58
Men’s Haircut $45
Shampoo & Blowdry – $45
Shampoo, Blowdry and Heat Tool – $65
Updo – $85
Destress Express $65
Hair Coloring – $60
Tint to Ends – $75
Partial Foil – $105
Full Foil – $120
Tint and Foil – $150
Bleach and Tone – $150
Destress Express Treatment – $45
The Destress Express Treatment is a combination of massage, essential oils and deep conditioning all for your hair, with a few minutes of the oxygen bar while you relax. (This would make a wonderful gift!)
Aromatic BioFeedback Reading
If you’re looking to get just a taste of the service, you can get a free Aromatic BioFeedback Reading to see your stress level, body/mind/spirit balance and aura size. The results may look something like this:
The Aromatic BioFeedback Reading is free, with Oxygen Bar – $1/min

Trends come and go, but some fashion techniques and textiles survive the test of time, such as ikat. Ikat is one of the oldest forms of textile decoration and involves the art of manipulating textile fibers before they’re woven into fabric. The result is an elaborate, beautiful and eye-catching pattern. Whether accenting a pair of heels, a summer scarf or a small accessory, ikat is a great way to make a big impact in your wardrobe. In the sea of summer brights, ikat patterns are easy to spot around the Mall. Here’s a selection of my favorites.
- Ikat Tribal Twisted Headwrap from Charlotte Russe
- Trend Trip from Sephora
- Ikat Print High-Low Dress from Forever 21
- BDG Ikat Button-Down Shirt from Urban Outfitters
- Ikat Seed Bead Stretch Belt from Loft
- Empyre Ikat Multicolor Tribal Print Strapless Dress from Zumiez
- Sondra Roberts Ikat Print Clutch from Nordstrom
- Ikat Print Shorts from Forever 21
- Argento SC ‘Ikat’ Picture Frame from Nordstrom
- Ikat Chiffon Dress from Forever 21
- Out of Pocket Beauty Brush Set from Sephora
- Classiques Entier® Classiques Entier Ikat Weave Jacket from Nordstrom
As you start to get that wonderful pregnant glow, you don’t want to have to sacrifice your trendiest, sassiest self, and good news, you don’t have to! Say goodbye to “mommy jeans” and hello to great outfits from Destination Maternity (Check out our Destination Maternity gift card giveaway below!) From an everyday maxi dress to the edgier print pant, you can still rock this season’s trends.
Yes, pregnant and sexy is still in option! For the trendy fashionista, wear a comfortable cotton graphic tee with a pair of printed pants. The fabric to the printed pants (pictured below) will make you feel like you are lounging in your PJ’s, but make you look like you’re ready to hit the runway. Add a blazer or chunky cardigan to complete the look. Layering is key! For your everyday style, try a bright colorful maxi dress or skirt for an effortless look. Add a jean jacket and/or statement necklace to add some pizzazz! For a “night out on the town” throw on an alternative to the infamous LBD – a bright colored dress such as this blue Charlie Jade number pictured below. A little bit of a cut out and shorter length is perfect for date night or a night out with the girls (sippin’ on waters of course;)) Three different looks for three different occasions! Beautiful glow, beautiful wardrobe!

As summer reluctantly approaches Minnesota, our calendars are beginning to fill with concerts, barbecues and poolside parties. Our favorite summer event is the upcoming music festival: Rock the Garden (scroll down to enter for a chance to win tickets!). But with the unpredictability of our current weather situation, how do we plan our wardrobe for these outdoor affairs?
Layers are key – a vest or chunky sweater will block the wind and act as a cushion to keep your skirt safe from unwanted grass stains as you hunker down under the sun waiting for your favorite band to hit the stage. Haute hats will also be a lifesaver to keep the freckles on your cheeks at bay and save your ‘do from an unexpected rainstorm. We have put together a plethora of layered, sun-blocking and weatherproofed looks to get you through your next summer festival.
Look 1: Denim vest over short dress available at Express
Look 2: Maxi dress and hat available at Len
Look 3: Chunky sweater and tie crop top available at Cotton On
Look 4: Printed pants and orange bag available at Len
Look 5: Paisley tie crop top, skirt and denim vest available at Cotton On
To celebrate Rock the Garden, we’re giving away one pair of tickets to four lucky MOA™ blog readers. Yup, you heard us right – we’re giving away four pairs of tickets to the SOLD OUT show! The show is Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 3 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The winners MUST be able to pick up their tickets at Mall of America® by Friday, June 14, 2013 at 4 p.m. How do you win? You must enter by Monday, June 10, 2013 at noon CST and provide a VALID EMAIL ADDRESS. We’ll announce the winner via email and update the post to reflect that we’ve chosen a winner.
