looking forward to summer

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

It’s always the same at this time of year. You are sitting freezing and thinking to yourself if it is remotely possible that you could be in a bikini for Memorial Day in one weeks time. It is also a time of anticipation – thinking of all the fun summer plans you have cooked up.

I have a crazy busy summer planned – I am planning to spend Memorial day with my friends and family at the beach….but then the silliness really begins. Summer – people need to look tan, and many people are not able to get a tan – or have brain enough not to bake. However much magazines try and tell us it is cool to be pale and interesting, when summer comes around the majority of us would like a little glow. I mean I can appreciate the super pale esthetic – but, as a pale English person, I don’t really feel like it is cool to enforce the rest of NYC to bear witness to my luminous white thighs – god forbid I am in the mood to wear shorts…..but to each his own. White is lovely – but sometimes – in the interest of being able to wear the clothes you want, or parade around naked with a false sense of security – it is fun to turn to a spray tan. So – as a result – my days free to lounge around poolside are limmited.

I am also up to my ears in Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp (check out www.kittycavalier.com). Me and my girlfriend came up with a class that is part serious work out and part sexy, flirty burlesque. We are having a lot of fun with it and our classes at Chelsea Studios have been completely sold out. I have been having the best fun ever listening to songs and then thinking of dance routines. Right now I am obsessed with James Bond songs – I am totally living out all my James Bond Fantasies.

I am very focused on my own dancing – and am hoping to go to some fun competitions this summer – all in different cities. It is a great way for my kids to see the country – and have fun being naughty in hotels across the USA. I love going to competitions and living out all my “Strictly Ballroom” fantasies. If anyone is in town July 4th weekend – there is a great competition in Brooklyn – that you can find by googling Manhattan Dancesport…..I think the big night is Saturday July 3rd – so you will be free to see the fireworks on JUly 4th.  Last year the competition was held at a hotel in downtown Brooklyn – I think a Marriott – and the other event taking place there was the International Little People’s convention – it was pretty unique as events go…..

I almost forgot to mention our leap into Boudoir photography. This has been really important and enjoyable for me. I am all about helping all women to feel a sense of their own sacredness and beauty – in a culture that tries to shove a limmited standard of beauty down our throats. The boudoir photography is a way to further this – a chance for everyone to take a picture of themselves that reflects their inner radiance. We are having so much fun getting ready for this and all my friends have loved modeling for the pictures on my website. I hope you will enjoy looking at them…better still I hope if you are interested you might come and have the pleasurable experience of being the subject of a piece of art yourself. Many people say it makes a great gift for a lover – but I think it is a gift for yourself.

Wishing you summer fun…..with love

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!
