Review – Cool Body Sculpting with Trilogy Medical Spa

If any of you happen to follow my Instagram, or saw this post a few weeks ago, You may have noticed that I had a procedure called CoolScuplting done by Trilogy Medical Spa. This is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical and non-evasive fat reduction system!

My Results : 

coolscuplting(small)

I don’t know about all of you, but my love handles (technical word is Flanks) are the most stubborn things in the world (they probably get it from me, since I definitely have a stubborn side), and never seem to go down in size, even when I am dieting and working out. Since they are such a strong, dense muscle, it is a pretty common problem area for many girls. So when deciding to do this elective surgery, I thought that would be the best area to target on me. If that area doesn’t bother you, some other common areas of focus tend to be the lower abdominal area (tummy pouch), inner and outer thighs and even your arms!

The trick with CoolScultping, is that the technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill your stubborn fat cells! This procedure actually sheds and eliminates those dead cells, and therefore it is a permanent solution, since your fat literally shrinks in that area!

Here is a full re-cap of my experience :

About a week before my procedure, I met for my consultation at Trilogy Medical Spa in Murray, Utah! I was extremely impressed by their spa and staff. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel really relaxed and comfortable. Once the consultation began, I had them look at my flank area to make sure that I was a candidate for the procedure (turns out I had enough fat to suck away, so we were all good lol). I left the appointment with tons of packets on the spa and also the procedure, so that I could completely read up on what to expect and what the results could be.

I woke up that next Sunday morning and was slightly nervous for the procedure that day, although I knew this was not a surgical operation, you never know what it will feel like for sure! I had read some reviews online that the process was a little uncomfortable, but pretty pain free. Upon arrival, they checked me in, took my measurements, took before photos and then began the procedure. They put a small (almost vacum-like) device on me that felt like a suction cup. Once it was suctioned on me, it then started cooling down my skin and I had to sit for about an hour with the device on each side. The first ten minutes felt a little like something was pulling on my skin, but I was completely relieved that it was much more tolerable than expected! It was so easy, that I was joking with the staff, telling stories and laughing while sitting there. Once each side was done, they massaged the area to loosen up the cold skin and I was able to take a quick break.

Once both sides were complete, the Trilogy assistants went over the post-procedure information to let me know what to expect and who to call if I needed anything! They let me know that they would be right there for me if I need, which was really comforting since I had never had anything like this done.

For the next few days, I was able to still go to work and made sure to bring ice packs with me! Since I work full time at a marketing agency, it made it very convenient that I didn’t have to miss any work and could carry on normal activity (the only thing, is that I did avoid the gym for about a week, since the areas were tender and I was nervous about putting too much stress on that area).

They tell you that you won’t see results for 6-12 weeks. Currently I am at about 6 weeks after the treatment and I am LOVING what I am noticing already! Although it is not a huge drastic change, I have noticed my clothes fitting better around the waistline and less bulging above my workout pants! I have heard that the Flanks can be one area that don’t shrink as drastically as some of the other targeted areas like lower abdomen, so I can only imagine how great it would be to get that area done as well!

If you are someone like me, who eats relatively healthy (except I can never resist a brownie lol) and you work out on a consistent basis, but can’t seem to get rid of those problem areas, I would completely recommend this! It is a cheaper alternative to many of the techniques out there currently, and is such an easy process. All results can be different per individual, but I am super thrilled with mine! As you can see from the picture above, there is definitely less bulk in that area, and I am hoping it will maybe go down a little bit more over the next few weeks!

Make sure to go to Trilogy Medical Spa for more information, or visit the CoolSculpting website for more details. If you are in the Salt Lake area, here is the number to schedule your consultation today :
801-747-2273

Today I am showing you my second look with Maggy London!

While my first look with Maggy London was a fun and flirty animal print dress, this one is definitely something that could be a  staple in my work attire. I love the cut, pattern and how it is made from a scuba material! The fabric makes it super easy to sit in all day, but also gives a stylish element with the fun watercolor print.

I love that the new dresses from Maggy London’s spring collection can be both fun and professional! They are perfect for girls my age who are working in the corporate world but still want to look young,  yet stylish.

Make sure to check out more dresses from their collection, and tune back in Monday to see my final look and also to enter my Maggy London GIVEAWAY!

Well as you  can see from my photo above, I definitely scored big in the Bra and Intimates Department at Kohl’s this week :)

I was so excited to share with you some of the ways that Kohl’s has made the bra buying experience a little more fun and custom for all of their users.

I don’t know about you guys, but I hate getting fitted for a bra! That feeling of figuring out your dimensions and cup size can be a tedious process in stores and a little awkward with the sales associate. So I was so excited when I realized I could use their new Online Bra Fitting Tool to take my own measurements! They showed me what areas to measure (band and cup size) and then allowed me to pick my ideal style. Based on those selections, they then provided a wide assortment of bras that would be perfect and selected for me!

Since I am still someone who loves to get a 100% look before purchase, I decided to go find some of my desired bra selections and try them on in the store! Kohl’s are located all over the country and are having special Bra Fitting Events all over, check to see if there is one at a location near you!

So here were my bra winners…
MY BRA CHOICES :

Best Push-Up Bra – Wonderbra
Most Fun / Best Back – Candie’s
Best Strapless – Maidenform
Best T-Shirt Bra – Maidenform
Best Fun Sports Bra – SO Yoga Bra

NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY!!

To celebrate this new part of their website and spread the Bra love ;) , Kohl’s wants to celebrate by offering a $200 giftcard to one of my lucky Fashion Canvas readers. All you have to do is enter the giveaway below using the Rafflecoptor!

Good luck, and let the shopping begin!

THE CANVAS – 

Dress : Maggy London (c/o) ~ Jacket : Target (old, similar here) ~
Shoes : Zara (old, similar here) ~ Aviators : (similar) ~
Earrings : Kate Spade ~ Purse : Chanel

Today I am so excited to be teaming up with Maggy London team to show you one of their new dresses from  their Spring 2015 Collection.

This animal print fit & flare dress is one of my favorite dresses I have ever owned!! The reason for this, is that it has one of the most flattering cuts I have seen. The triangle waist side panels create the illusion of a smaller waste, while the fuller skirt helps balance out your curves. The fun pop of pink over the animal print is a final touch that takes this dress to the next level.

I am so excited to wear this scuba material dress all spring and summer. I was thinking it could even be cute with some over-the-knee boots (on some of those rainy spring days), or a cute pair of ballet flats (for a casual summer look)!

Make sure to check out the Maggy London website for more looks and make sure to come back to my blog over the next week to see how I styled more of their fun, unique and girly dresses!

Last weekend, I had a very casual Sunday. We went to my favorite brunch spot Ruth’s ( it is right up the canyon I live in), went to a movie (go see Kingsman, it was a good laugh) , and ended it with dinner (our family’s Sunday tradition).

 I wanted to keep my look simple and comfortable for running around, but also wanted something that still gave off a chic and urban vibe. I think this look completely accomplished my needs, plus these shoes were extremely comfy all day, and this jacket was clutch during my movie (I ALWAYS get cold in movie theaters).

What is your go-to lounge wear that you may be wearing this weekend?
