week, I had the thrilling opportunity to work with
The Village At Meridian on their HUGE Mother’s Day Makeover Giveaway.
A drawing was held, and one lucky woman was gifted over $1,000 worth of gift cards and services from The Village, LOFT, White House | Black Market, Soma, Francesca’s, Oconik, Menchie’s, and the newly-opened SB Salon. 

And the winner was… Stacy Schreiter! A mother of two who works at Scentsy, Stacy is super active and loves the great outdoors. When we met up for her shopping day, she talked to me about how important comfort is for her, as she is always on the go, and a very busy woman. Our first stop was Soma Intimates, because a well-fitting bra changes how your shirts and dresses fit, and Soma does a great job of professional measuring and fitting! We armed Stacy with some new “pretty little things,” and moved on to the clothes shopping.

Accessorizing in LOFT – Stacey LOVED their new Lou & Grey line; soft fabrics and colors, inspired by loungewear.  She loaded up on great pieces, all for 40% off!Ammophotog stylespygirl mothers day

We found a gorgeous necklace & earrings set at Francesca’s, had a delicious lunch at Kona Grill (they were giving away free cupcakes for moms! Yum!!!), and then moved on to SB Salon for some pampering time!

Hair stylist Amie Reynolds Shoemaker worked her magic on Stacy, using products from Bumble & Bumble.Ammophotog stylespygirl mothers day

After hair, Stacy moved on to makeup, with Kristin Onne Merren. Kristin used natural luxury line Jane Iredale to even out Stacy’s skin tone, and added soft, natural colors to give her an easy-to-maintain, everyday look.

Wanna Be A Babe? Ooh-la-la, it’s the HAIR!

Have you ever dyed your hair, loved it for a day, and then cried as all the brightness washed down your shower drain? Or pumped up your limp locks with so much product, even gale force winds couldn’t knock it down?

Do you ever wish your hair was thicker? Or longer? Or just plain… MORE??? Admit it: you want BABE Hair!

Thanks to BABE, the newest thing in professional extensions, any woman can have fabulous hair! These lovely locks are not the frizzy, crunchy, slightly-annoying extensions of years gone by. They don’t pull or pinch, nor do they break off chunks of your own hair when your friend’s new baby grabs your ponytail and YANKS!

“Babes” are comfortable, top-quality, non-damaging, and when done properly, completely inconspicuous! (Unless of course, you go for some wild, bright color… like me,  ha ha ha!)

A few years ago, I had a dark “bob” cut, with magenta color in the back (see pic, left). Getting & keeping this color was SO hard on my hair, I had to take a break from bleaching & coloring and stick with something more natural. I had almost given up hope that I could ever have bright colors in my hair again, when a friend told me about BABE extensions! I just HAD to give it a try. 🙂

I went to Rumors Salon, and met with their pro extension stylist, Dani Redfern.

To apply these fabulous extensions, Dani separates sections of your hair, applies a weft of BABE hair under a section with special adhesive, then sandwiches another weft onto the top. Because so much of your own hair is attached in the middle, there’s no pulling or pain, unlike what you can experience with clip-ins or beaded extensions.

The best part is: you can wear them, sleep in them, style them, and treat them pretty much like your own hair! No crunch, muss, or annoying discomfort.

The original application lasts a couple months. Later, when the grow-out gets annoying, Dani can dissolve the glue with a special solvent, and re-use the same wefts of hair; simply move them up, and re-glue! Each weft can be re-used 2-3 times before you need to purchase a new weft, making these extensions truly the best bang for your buck.

Sound too good to be true? I tried it, and was SO impressed by the results!

If you could have soft, healthy, colorful hair, what brilliant shade would YOU choose? Stop by & see Dani Redfern at Rumors Salon on Fairview ~(208) 949-4121 ~ and get the BABE hair you’ve always wanted! 🙂
