Events at Jennie Fresa: Tata Harper Skin Care Master Class in April
June 11, 2015

In April, we held a Tata Harper Skin Care Master Class & Mini Facial event. It was a fabulous way to learn more about this luxury, 100% natural skincare line and to also learn the benefits of using natural and non-toxic products.  A big shout out to A Recipe for Wellness for providing the yummy, green smoothies and to Jennifer Bach Photography for taking these amazing photos.  If you are “green” with envy that you missed out on this opportunity, please stay tuned for more natural beauty events coming soon!

Favorite Looks at the Golden Globes
January 14, 2014

The Golden Globes are always an indicator for fashion and beauty trends throughout the year. Sleek, straight hair and statement red lips reigned on the red carpet-two trends I’m sure we’ll see a lot more of this year.

I think we can all agree that the ladies in RED stole the show- Lupita Nyong’ O, Emma Watson and Amy Adams were among my favorites for best dressed. Lupita was simply jaw dropping! Her skin looked radiant and I loved her minimal makeup and accessories. Emma took a huge risk in her Dior pantsuit and I. LOVED. IT. She can certainly pull it off. Her subtle hair and makeup fit the bill.

When it comes to beauty winners, Cate Blanchett gets my vote for hair and makeup perfection. She was a breath of “hollywood” fresh air. Her hair style was the epitome of old world glamour and her makeup looked stunning- loved the glistening pearl eye shadow, flushed cheeks and rosy lip stain. Her Armani gown was show stopping.

I also saw a few wedding worthy looks on the red carpet last night. Margot Robbie was elegant in her perfectly fit Gucci gown. Her look, both fashion and beauty wise, can easily translate into bridal. Her sleek, side parted up-do and fresh-faced makeup completed the look. I also loved Tatiana Maslany’s silvery Jenny Packham number. Her wavy, side-swept hair and winged liner are perfect for a slightly untraditional bride.

Some of my other favorites were Kerry Washington ( how cute is her baby bump!??), Elizabeth Moss ( so thrilled she didn’t match her lip with her dress!) Emma Roberts (unfortunately, her Aunt was a major disappointment for me!).

Who were your favorites?

Shelly's Experience at Jolie Academy
November 20, 2013

Hi Beauties!

Today, I’m here to share some very exciting news with you! I recently enrolled in an aesthetic’s program at Jolie Academy in Ludlow Massachusetts. Come this spring, I will be a licensed aesthetician!  In addition to my makeup services, I will now be able to help my brides and all women keep their skin healthy and clear.  I have always been passionate about the beauty industry.  Knowing that weddings are a seasonal business, I started to ponder the idea of how to make working in this industry a full-time career.  Through some soul searching, mentoring (thanks Jennie!) and research I finally decided to go for it!  I’m so thrilled to expand the services that I offer here at Jennie Fresa and I wanted you to be the first to know about my plans!  I’m back in school full-time through the winter and I couldn’t be happier!  I’m very lucky to have the support of my friends and family.  I can hardly wait to start offering my new services in the new year. Stay tuned for my official start date.  Here are just a few of the services I will be bringing to the boutique:


~High Frequency

~Chemical Peels


~Body Waxing

Let me know what other services you would like to see here at Jennie Fresa?  Until next time, I hope you’ll enjoy a few pictures of me in action at school!

Lots of Love,
