Chanel Make-up Event

by 101570747 | | 0 comments

What's the best way to celebrate the fact that you're half way through the week? We think it's makeovers, shopping, and eating sweets! That's why on Wednesday, October 28th,  we brought in our favorite ladies from Saks-New Orleans to put on our annual Chanel make-up event. Customers booked appointments to have their makeup done and ordered their favorite products when they were finished. But honestly, what Chanel make-up products aren't our favorite?! Ladies left with fresh faces and hopefully a few new fall sweaters. 

We promise these cupcakes tasted as good as they looked. One or two (or three) cheat sweets never hurt anyone! And a mimosa to wash it all down...cheers! 

One of our favorite customers called her boyfriend from the make-up chair saying, "Honey, where are you taking me tonight? I look good for a Wednesday!" 

If you want to participate in the Chanel make-up event next year, leave a comment or call us at the store  (225-763-5889.) We'd love to see you! Thanks again to the Chanel team from Saks-New Orleans for helping us feel as gorgeous as we all are and sharing a few laughs.

Keep Dreaming,

Last week, Katie, owner of our Ruston store, had the privilege of heading over to one of our favorite cupcake shops to learn a little more about baking! Heather, the owner of Social Bites in Ruston, was kind enough to teach her the basics of baking while letting her indulge in a few sweet treats so that we could share it with you. As you can probably imagine, they had a blast in the kitchen together...

Social Bites is the most adorable little shop in downtown Ruston. Our Rodéo team visits them almost everyday. (Yes, it's a problem. We know.) The good (or bad) news is that they are about to be our neighbor! Heather is moving her shop to West Park Avenue in August. She will be relocating and expanding so that she can offer a space inside that you can rent out for parties and showers. We couldn't be more excited to have her on our street, but we have a feeling this could be dangerous!

Heather is a native of Ruston, Louisiana and has had Social Bites for seven years. She loves everything about baking and has become accustomed to an apron being her uniform! Her sweet "weakness" is Carrot cake.

Although baking was a lot of fun, it is not as easy as it looks. Loading massive pans into a really hot oven is no easy job. And with baking, there is little room for mistakes or errors. However, the reward can be so sweet. 

Thanks again to Heather of Social Bites for welcoming us into your kitchen. You are the sweetest! If you live in Ruston, make sure to swing by her shop and indulge in a cupcake and an old fashioned coke!
