November December Newsletter 2008

Hi Everyone!

This is the last newsletter of the year. Isn't it amazing that another year is almost over! I've had an amazing time with all of you again this year. It's been a great year and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support.

Our 1st annual Ladies Night was a huge success! Thanks to all who attended and to our vendors. For those of you who had orders they should be arriving shortly. We had about 60 people attend, it was a great night. Heather and I were so busy we didn't get any photos! We're already planning next year, so we'll be sure to let you know when our date is set.

Christmas appointments

There are still a slight few available openings left in December so if you need that special Christmas appointment let me know as soon as possible. I want to make sure that you all look amazing for the holidays.

Introducing to THELOFT
Hair Studio


KEVIN.MURPHY is a fashion focused range of salon only, professional, hair care products that was conceived in the world of session styling.The range includes shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling products, which have all been designed for specific hair types. Whatever your hair’s texture, you’ll find the products that will make your hair look like you’ve just stepped off the catwalk.All our products contain high levels of natural ingredients and we use high grade essential oils and amino acids for the ultimate hair and scalp treatment. You’ll see the effects immediately.

While working on hair at fashion shows, Kevin noticed that most of models come through "hair and make-up" many times in one day. Kevin found that as a day progressed, the models' hair became heavy, dull and lifeless. There were no styling products on the market that fitted the needs of an editorial stylist so he created his own. Kevin found that in answering his own needs as a stylist, he had created products that were easy to use and crossed over perfectly to consumers.

ECO.FRIENDLY Methodology-->
CULTURE: ENVIRONMENTAL HARM REDUCTION-->We consider the environment in all our business decisions and try as much as possible to find cleaner, more sustainable methods of doing business.Our bottles and tubs can be recycled so please don't let them end up in land-fill. Whenever possible, we make our outer packaging from post consumer waste to avoid the need for trees to be chopped down.Australia is such a long way from the USA and Europe, our two largest markets, so we have decided to move the manufacturing and distribution of KEVIN.MURPHY products to the USA. This will remove the need to ship full product to the USA and reduce the shipping distance to Europe by more than half. These decisions will substantially reduce the carbon dioxide emitted by the KEVIN.MURPHY business from shipping. KEVIN.MURPHY will remain a completely Australian owned and run business.We do not test any of our products on animals.

At Kevin Murphy we recognize the seriousness of dangerous climate change. In an effort to help educate the public and drive reductions in global carbon pollution we are supporting the Australian Conservation Foundation and its outreach work to the Australian community.Find out how you can make a difference.


Simple Apple Crisp

1 cup flour

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup quick oats

1/2 cup butter/ margarine

1 tsp cinnamon

6 med apples thinly sliced

(I like to use my food processor with the slicing attachment)

Heat oven to 350

Mix all dry ingredients together. Cut in butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs.

Slice up apple and put them in an oven safe dish that is sprayed with cooking spray. Pour over the dry ingredients over the apples and bake for 35-40 minutes.
