Rocking Around the Christmas Tree!

Holiday parties are in full swing. It's a bit bitter sweet this year. The celebrations may not be as elaborate as years past, but the friendships remain. We've endured a lot this year and have learned much about ourselves and our country. The good news is the focus is back on the true meaning of the season, friends, family, and health - so for that we must brave the storms, get dressed up and embrace the merriment of these weeks. My hubby and I had his company party Saturday night and my look was all found downtown from my head to my toes....

Cut and Color : Maria
Eyebrow Design: Spa Cascada
Sunless Glow: Spa City Spa
Dress: 80 West {$30 bought with my Shopping with DTSB coupon at the event - a steal!}
Boyfriend Blazer: Hunt, Ltd
Necklace: by Shari Silverman Voce found at Aggie's
Tights: Violet's
Night out with my husband and friends: priceless!
It's crunch time, so I will have a giveaway on Wednesday to assist you and your check list. It may be just the boost your wallet needs to help you get your shopping done! I will also reveal the video from the last DTSB shopping event. Don't miss it!
Ho Ho Ho.....

The Grand Finale & Track Ready... {Giveaway Announced}

I love the wrap dress.  Erin went out of her comfort zone with this dress and has had amazing results!  She looks sexy and confident!  The wrap style plays up her girly figure in a very sophisticated way.  Spanx and Fashion Tape is a girl's best kept secret for keeping things where they need to be.


I wanted to play up the color because it's all about color this season {especially orange and bright yellow}.  I used the same blue peep toe wedges from the shop your closet post to play up the blue in the dress, but added an orange clutch, chunky necklace and fun flower cocktail ring to add pop!  Take risks and have fun with color - it isn't always about matching.

In Erin's Words....

"Thank you so much Susan!  Who knew shopping could be so much fun!  I love how we went through my closet first and decided which things work for me and then got rid of things that did not.  And then to the shopping!  I can truthfully say I did not expect to find much downtown to fit me .... but Susan knows what she is doing.  It was great to shop with Susan because she knows the stores and store owners so well.  These people are great!  So helpful and not scary at all!!!  

 

 I love all my new clothes ~ they are so comfortable and mix with all my clothes I already own.  When we were going through my closet Susan was surprised at the clothes and accessories I already had but never wear...Susan then asked me, "What are you waiting for?"  Well, I am not waiting any longer.  I have been stepping it up and wearing my cool jewelry and hats. Why not?    I have a great life and now I can look good while I am enjoying it!

 

Thanks to Maria for my great hair, I love it!  Much appreciation to Amy and Mary at Spa Cascada..  I love my make up and brows! Thanks to all who came to my big reveal and donated so generously to the Franklin Community Center food pantry".

 

Erin and her husband Mike, through their party raised $900.00 and donated two boxes full of much needed non-perishable food items to Franklin Community Center. Erin is truly beautiful inside and out!

 

A special thanks to Kim Purdy for taking all the pictures!!!

 

The winner of this week's giveaway and the start of an enhancement of their own is...

 

Rebecca..

Her comment was... "My daughter Alice {referring to my grey roots} said "Mom - it looks like someone dropped a powdered doughnut on your head"!

 

Enjoy SaratogaArtsFest this week end!! 


 See you next week when we will celebrate DAD!

Enhancement Secrets Revealed {Giveaway Wednesday!}

I hate to give away all Erin's secret's {and mine}, but then again, that is why I'm here!





Secret #1 - Maria Brower.  Amazing hairstylist.  I've been using her for years, so this is the hardest one to divulge...  A former New Yorker who takes beauty and style seriously {now you know why I love her}, but the best part is she wants YOU to be happy.  She sits with you to discuss lifestyle and how much time you can realistically spend on your daily hair routine {ponytail not included}.  She spent years working for Redken selling their products to salons, but always kept her hands in hair - her first love {sorry Chuck}.  She knows product and how to execute the best current cuts and colors.  Interested?  E-mail me and I'll get you set up!  Pass it on... 



Secret #2 Spa Cascada.  OK - I haven't been so good at keeping Amy and her hacienda style spa a secret.  It's made a few posts here and my spirit has been rehydrated there plenty of times.  Amy and her dedication to her craft continues to be an inspiration to me.  Her eyebrow designs, skin care treatments, facials, and makeup knowledge has enhanced many Saratogians.  Add Erin to that growing list.    








Secret #3 - You can experience some enhancement for yourself.  This week's giveaway is a free hair consultation from Maria with a complimentary Redken Shade's EQ Conditioning Crystal Clear Glaze treatment {I've had a few and love them!}.  As Maria says, "this will give the winner exceptional shine and condition without any color change to the hair.  It's ammonia free {gentle to the hair}, acid balanced, and fortified with wheat amino acids".  What's this mean to you?  A better conditioned, full of body, shiny mane!


I'm not done yet.....  the second part of this brilliant giveaway is a free make up consultation with Amy at Spa Cascada.  Amy will discuss make up trends with you, check out your skin, apply a little Glo Minerals and fill you in on what colors work best for you.  Another secret you will walk away with - Blinc Mascara.  The newest {and greatest} mascara on the market.  You'll be ahead of your friends by "tubing" your lashes instead of the passe way of painting them!


Free hair consultation, hair glaze treatment, make up consultation and the newest mascara on the market - you will be on your way to the enhancement you always dreamed of!  Make a comment on this post to make that dream come true!  Winner announced on Friday!  Good Luck!
