Allie + Raven | Interlaken Inn
January 20, 2017

Allie + Raven’s wedding was held at Interlaken Inn, located in the beautiful Litchfield Hills of northwest Connecticut. It provided the perfect, memorable backdrop of 30 ares of English cottage-style gardens, shimmering lakes and manicured lawns.

Our one and only, Tricia Caliola, was the makeup artist on the job… “I really wanted to do a dewy, blushing bride look on Ali. I did a light sweep of shimmer on the eye lids followed with a touch of mascara. To keep her skin looking flawless throughout the evening, I did light airbrush makeup followed with a peachy pink cheek. For lips, I used an illa lipstick and topped it off with one of Jennie Fresa’s lipgloss to give it maximum shine.”

Allie’s stunning dress was created by Reem Acra & Kleinfeld Bridal and the breathtaking flower bouquets and centerpieces were created by Jakklyn Iris.

The 3 Stages of Detox…with a Natural Deodorant
January 12, 2017

Hi Beauty Friends!

Are you guys ready to take the next step into living a healthier lifestyle?! If so then get ready to DETOX!

Don’t worry I’m not encouraging an all green liquid diet for the next few days, but instead take a Takesumi Detox journey. This bamboo charcoal deodorant will allow your body to get rid of built-up toxins and bacteria.

Stage 1: (weeks 1 & 2)

During the first few weeks you will question if the detox is even working and will start to notice you are producing a stronger body odor. Don’t freak out, this is normal! You are at the beginning stages of giving your body a chance to detox and getting rid of the bacteria that has been clogged in your glands…gross I know.

Stage 2: (week 3)

You may notice that you are sweating a lot more than normal. This shows that the detox is working, and the toxins and bacteria that are trapped in your glands are finding there way out!

Stage 3: (week 4)

The underarm odor is almost gone! You will start to smell as good as new as long as you keep applying every day. The activated charcoal will continue to act as a daily detox and will leave you feeling fresh and clean!

*During the detox process it is important to reapply a few times throughout the day, exercise to start sweating the toxins out quicker, avoid eating processed foods, and stay hydrated!*
