That Jennifer Love-Hewitt has a lot to answer for. The whole world wants to be vajazelled. I have written quite a few “funny spray tan stories” blogs – but I could write a book about funny vajazelling stories. However – this post is not dedicated to that. 

One thing that surprised me – which is pretty stupid of me to be surprised by anything – is that men want to be vajazelled too. I mean – not exactly vajazzelled – but bedazelled – or should I say “P” dazzled. Last week a gentleman called and somehow or other I got put on the phone with him. He wanted his family crest of arms that included a rearing dragon and something else as a custom decoration. People are so creative.

So summer is gearing up to be super busy and super sprakley at Brazil Bronze.

I have been keeping myself very busy with lots of fun pursuits. As you know I love to dance and keep in shape – so I came up with a really fun idea for a new workout class. It is called Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp and I have started teaching it three times a week at Chelsea Studio. I have a great friend who is a burlesque perform who goes by the name of Kitty Cavalier – and of course I have to have a name too – so I am Chardonnay (there is a British tv show called “footballer’s wives” and one of the wives was called Chardonnay and I loved the name so much I wanted to christen my daughter with it – however my family put a damper on that – so it all worked out because the name was left over and free for me to use!) The workout is totally juicy. It is a little showgirl and retro in its style and music – but it combines regular aerobics, strength training, ballet, yoga, plyometrics – and then there is a 25 minute section where we learn a little burlesque dance routine together. We encourage the participants to try to dress a little sexy for class – or at least slap on some lipstick. If you want to try the class go to www.kittycavalier.com to register.

This past weekend I was at a ballroom dancing competition in Philadelphia. It was a lot of fun. However – the people at Amtrak are a bunch of crooks. They tried to charge me $597 to travel from NYC to Philly one way.  A couple of weeks ago we went to a competition in Costa Rica and spent less money than going for one day to Philly….but hell it was fun. When I showed my friends the dvd of the comp they were totally impressed because I was making really good faces – which I never did before. I may not be a good dancer – but at least I have started to make really good faces…..!!

Boudoir photography…coming soon!

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Anyone who knows me knows that one of my main passions in life is my ladies dance group, lovingly known as “the Pocoho’s” (because we give our performances in the Pocono mountains). We choose songs and create elaborate showgirl numbers with lavish costumes, hair and make-up. One of my passions of life is having women of every age and size feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin – having people celebrate themselves and make the best of themselves. Hell – I am trying to do that with myself every day.

Our dance group has grown in its size and scope – and one of the things that kind of evolved from it was that before and after the performances we would stage lavish photo shoots. I learned that my friends loved to be given permission to present themselves as a little bit sexy – but in a sweet classy way. At first people pretend to be a little bit shy – but at the end of the day everyone loves having gorgeous pictures of themselves – and it really helps when someone else takes control and gives permission and sets safe parameters – for example telling you what to wear, or not wear – suggesting poses that really make you look your best – and then the main ingredient – working with a photographer who loves women and sees what is beautiful. As luck would have it we have two amazing photographers in our group.

My non-dancing friends started to see the post performance photos and started asking me how they could get such lovingly taken pictures of themselves. So – I gave it some thought and decided that I would start to organize these photography sessions for my friends.

So this is my opinion of what a boudoir photo is:  a beautiful picture where the photographer SEES the sensual, beautiful side of a woman. This is not a centerfold. The picture is usually sexy, maybe lingerie – maybe props such as a feather boa, fans, stockings, heels, gloves, pearls – the idea is more to suggest something than to show it. The girl can be very covered, or not, depending on her vision – but she needs to be relaxed and feel good and be able to flirt and play a little with the camera.

So – we have been having a lot of fun with this. A really gorgeous picture can give you a whole new sense of self confidence. Lots of people who I know to be pretty hard on themselves have seen their shots and started to see the beginning of their own possibilities. It’s like someone else sees something pretty in you – and you have no choice but to put down your resistance and understand at your very core that you are not completely a lost cause. A boudoir shot is a great gift to give a lover – but a magnificent gift to give yourself. Pretty soon I will post some of the adorable picks on  the website. Don’t be shy – maybe this is the summer to step into your power but being brave enough to acknowledge your own beauty ;-)….Sally

new beauty trends

Monday, May 10th, 2010

When I started spray tanning in NYC back in 2002, many people had never even heard about the service. Eight years can make a big difference. Last year the World Health Organization and the American Cancer Society said that regular tanning beds definitely cause cancer (previously they were “suspected” of causing cancer). I would say that now getting an airbrush or spray tan has now become as much a regular beauty treatment as getting a pedicure and our average client comes in once a week.

 

The thing I love at Brazil Bronze is that we always have an atmosphere of playing with whatever is the newest or most fun in beauty. Nothing could have prepared me for this years’ huge trend for Vajazzling. Ironically when we first started spraying from the very beginning we did Swarovski decals – to me it was just a pretty, sexy thing that went well with the spray tan. Then this year Jennifer Love-Hewitt sent the trend out of the ball park. Many new clients are coming to us specifically for this service. Basically you come in and get a bikini wax – then you pick out a gorgeous crystal design and it is applied in the bikini area and lasts around a week. We also have crystals for other areas of the body such as the lower back or ankles.

What is the demographic for vajazzling? Everyone. It never ceases to surprise me who shows up for what. It seems to me the kind of person who comes for vajazzling is someone playful, with a sense of humour – generally someone planning a cute surprise for a boyfriend or husband – there is generally an atmosphere of excited conspiracy and anticipation. It is not a bunch of porn stars showing up – just regular girls and ladies.

The other huge thing for summer is lashes. We do lots of different kinds – semi permanents that last one or two weeks – and full on glamour length mink lashes that last till your lash grows out its cycle. You can pay $80 for lashes or $400 for lashes – and they all look so pretty and natural. To me lashes are the quickest pick me up.

Waxing is huge this year – and we have gone over board experimenting with pain free sugars and waxes – and amazing technicians whose highest priority is giving the client a comfortable and pleasant experience with great results.

So next time you come to BBGB – don’t be shy – ask about our new stuff and go home extra pretty!
