New Life,New You

This time of year is extra special for some of us but extra difficult for those going through family, personal or relationship issues.  It is the time of year to give thanks for what you have been blessed with and help those that are in need.  It was an honor to work with Salon Alexander/Beauty Entourage, Sassy Mouth Photography, Dressbarn, and Lyn Evans Potpourri Designs and collaborate this day of beauty for survivors of domestic abuse from Interval House

The wonderful, generous staff members Salon Alexander gave free cuts, color, style, and makeup to these strong women just a few days before Thanksgiving.  Dressbarn and Lynn Evans styled the women in fabulous clothing to bring their looks to life.  Sassy Mouth Photo took headshots of the strong, beautiful women.  This makeover was not just about looking beautiful, but feeling beautiful inside & out so these women can really feel the meaning of New Life, New You.  Some of the women expressed their gratitude by saying that their new hair color or cut was a start to a new beginning. Another woman said she never felt more beautiful in her life.  It was an amazing event to be a part of! Fox CT even came out & did a wonderful story on our event.  Ashley Stone, owner of Salon Alexander talks about why this was so important to her and how domestic violence is a cause that is close to her heart.

St. Agnes Home Fashion Show

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the St. Agnes Home Express Yourself Fashion Show.  The event was to suppoer St. Agnes, which is an organization that helps teen moms choose life and helps them through their schooling, parenting, and gives them the resources they need to care for their child.  It was such a great event.  The moms and mom-to-bes modeled some beautiful designer clothes and the event was held at the CT governor’s residence which was pretty cool as well.  My photos aren’t the highest quality since they were from my iphone but I wanted to share a few pics! I was also able to meet some great people in the fashion industry such as personal stylist Laree from Vintage Chic  by Design (www.vintagechicbydesign.com )  and stylist from Lyn Evans (http://www.lynevans.com/).
