Happy Tuesday Loves!
One of my favorite pick me ups is getting my hair blown out. My hair is natural and sometimes I wear it curly. However, in the fall I’m definitely a fan of the blow out.
My dear friend Jennifer Jones is quite the stylist. She’s the proud owner of a new hair boutique in Alexandria, Virginia called BlowOuts Plus!
I was honored when she asked my company Pretty Parties and Fancy Favors to plan her soft launch.
As well, as ESPION: Atelier’s amazing designer Deidre Jefferies and her president Nicole Fisher. I felt like a real femme fatale when she dressed me for New York Fashion Week.
But I digress, who doesn’t love a great pampering? Jenny slayed the guests hair with the ORS Olive oil line. Each person was given a box filled with full-sized products to take home!
ORS is the #1 brand in the ethnic haircare market! Made by Namasté Laboratories, the company addresses the needs of health-conscious multi-cultural consumers. Namasté specializes in identifying holistic hair approaches.
If that wasn’t enough, attendees were given makeovers by Faith is Beauty who launched her business on her bday this week!
I served lavender cocktails alongside rose and fruit lemonade. I used Rose and Violet Lavender by Amoretti Syrups. The ladies were able to cleanse the palate with a sip of spa water.
The décor paired nicely with the light offerings. Of course, such a ladylike event called for my collection of vintage china, tea cups, glassware with cute accents like gold straws.
Jennifer’s mother is quite the baker. She blessed us with her homemade tea cakes (mmm scones!), cookies and brownies.
It was such fun and everyone left feeling fab! Watch out for an upcoming ORS giveaway contest! I can’t wait to give a box filled with products to one of you!
If you’re ever in Alexandria, Virginia be sure to book at an appointment with Jenny. She slays all hair types! You won’t be sorry.
Oh and yes The Walking Dead fans…this is the very same Alexandria that the show is centered around. Of course, there aren’t any zombies to reunion your hair.

Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I’d sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, “I think you need a blog!” LOL!
