Cool Events and Hot Products

Well once again it has been too long and so much to dish about!

Since it is “Summer in Saratoga” and it is the “Summer Place to Be.”  Many of the events we were invited to be a part of were all around my own Fabulous stomping ground.  As many of you may or may not know.  It is a tradition to wear a fabulous hat to the Saratoga Flat Track.  So we were invited by couture retailer “Fancy Schmancy” and photographer Kermit Hayes to help photograph their fabulous custom made hats.  We shot 60 different hats on model Liz in a few short hours.  If you have never been to Fancy Schmancy, it is so worth a trip.  Every dress, hat, piece of jewelry, handbag, or pair of shoes are original, couture and there is nothing like it in Upstate NY !

Next, former bride and Frank Adams Staff Member Laura Mullin invited us to help she and staff jeweler Betsey become Models for David Yurman Jewelry at the Saratoga Polo Club.  First off sweet Laura greeted Kyle and I with lunch from Putnam Market on Broadway in Saratoga. The staff at Frank Adams worked so closely together to make the event a success.  They are all like family and it was apparent how much they care about each other and their roles at Frank Adams


Next, I was invited by friend and colleague Denise Eliopolus, Owner of Something Blue Bridal to be her date to the Induction Ceremonies of Michael Jackson into the National Museum of Dance .   Well the best part, other than meeting brother Marlin Jackson, Sipping on Moet while watching dancers from Step Up 3 and Dancing with the Stars, was getting to go shopping at Something Bleu for the perfect dress just minutes before stepping out to the event. Photos of this event can be seen at Imagine Portrait Studio’s website at the following link.

Ok so we had to have a little fun in Albany too,  The New York Players invited Alayne to help out with the new promotional photos of the band, atop of Dale Miller Restaurant with photographers, Joe and JP of Joe Elario Photography.  Always a fab time when you have that many musicians in one skyline.

I also worked on bringing some great new products to the boutique.

My obsession with growing my own lashes and doing it in a natural way , brought LASHEM to MMF.

Lashem is paraben and prostaglandin free

Lashem is one of the most natural eyelash growth products. It is specially formulated with a patented technology that does not require any preservation chemical and still have a longer shelf life. They are very effective to use and can show results in only two weeks unlike other eyelash growth products. The natural ingredients used in its manufacturing such as Goji berries, cranberry, green tea and grape seed fruit extracts cause no irritation on the area of application.

Products that contain prostaglandin can cause a change in the eye color of the user and is some cases, can also affect the eyesight. It becomes inevitable for women to carefully check the ingredients of the eyelash growth product before applying them. Lashem products are free from prostaglandin and do not pose any risk to the eye color or the vision of the user. Those who use contact lenses can also safely use lashem because they are ophthalmologist-tested to be non-irritating. Even if women use eyelash extensions, they can apply Lashem products without any risk of irritation or eyelash hair falling out. 3 month size  is $85.00

You can safely grow longer eyelashes with Lashem.
