Fox29's Jennaphr Frederick pays a visit to my studio

On November 12th, the feisty and hilarious Jennaphr Frederick of Fox29's Good Day stopped by the studio to help me promote my recycling event and to get my opinion on make-up (uh oh) - the necessary and the not-so-necessary.

We also had a special guest with us, Bryan Barron, who was in town promoting the latest edition of "Don't Go to the Beauty Counter Without Me," a book he co-authors with Paula Begoun ("The Cosmetics Cop").   Bryan talked with Jennaphr about beauty "dupes," that is, inexpensive products that can be substituted for wicked expensive ones.  So that's good.

I always tell my clients and  workshop participants about Beautypedia, the online version of the book - it's a much more comprehensive and current resource for thousands of products reviews.  Begoun's research team base their reviews on claims made by the manufacturers, about efficacy, for example, and the ability to turn you into Jennifer Lopez.

Video of my two spots coming soon.....

In the Spirit of Healing

I worked with delightful and talented photographer Sas Becker on a photo shoot for Holy Spirit Hospital this summer. The photos were for a campaign to promote cancer care at their facility in Harrisburg. The first session was with Judi, a breast cancer survivor well on the mend, and her little nephew Jordan. I think she really enjoyed having some lashes and eyebrows again, even if only for the day.

I met James at the second shoot. Even though the exterior did say "military man" and "black belt in judo," he was really very good-natured about having make-up applied.

I'm grateful to Sas for giving me an opportunity to meet these very brave and special people.
