Hi Guys! I have fun news. One of my favorite boutiques in the local Twin Cities Area ” Primp” is holding their 2nd annual trunk show ” Unleasehed”. This will benefit the Wags & Whiskers Animal Rescue. Primp is an adorable boutique full of unique clothing and accessories that are all under $100. It’s affordable and stylish!
Primps event “Unleashed” will be March 8th from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm in both store locations (st.paul and the west end) and they will be providing light hors d’oeuvres and beverages. They will also feature “doggie bags” available for purchase for $10- full of discounts, coupons and gift certificates donated by local businesses. One lucky person who purchases a $10 doggie bag will win a free full set of mink or silk eyelash extensions from myself and LOVELO BEAUTY LLC .
The event will provide a monetary donation to Wags & Whiskers in the amount of 10% of the culmination of sales on that date from each store as well as additional donations collected. Primp’s Last year’s Spring Trunk Show was a huge success with over 200 attendees and a total donation of $1500 to Minnesota Life College. This year the event is projected to double that with the additional location.
Wags and Whiskers is a small, local, no-kill, volunteer-run program operating online.
I am so thrilled to be a sponsor for this event! Everyone is welcome to attend the event! To show your support or for more updates from Primp or myself at Lovelo Beauty , please see our facebook pages:

Hey Guys, You may not expect to receive anything for Valentine’s Day this year, but here are some things I’ve come across in the last month that would make a great gift , (even if you have to buy it for yourself). This is also sort of my January/February favorites in Beauty.
The first is one has to be my favorite scent right now. It is the fragrance, “After my own heart” by Ineke. http://ineke.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=23&products_id=28 I can’t even begin to describe how much I love this scent, especially this time of year. It smells like sweet lilacs. It’s notes are Bergamot, Raspberry, Crisp Green Foliage, Lilac Sandlewood, Heliotrope and Musk. IT SMELLS SO GOOD!!

The second gift item is a home fragrance. It is the Reed Diffuser by Alora Ambiance. These make a great gift for someone or for yourself because I don’t know who wouldn’t like something to make their home smell nicer. These are so fragrant, and look very nice as decoration too!! Alora Ambiance is actually based on of Minneapolis, right here! Go check out their fragrances if you have not yet! http://www.aloraambiance.com/ I also hear the fragrance can linger in your home for up to 6 months!!

The third recommendation is a must have hair item in my own personal opinion. It is the GHD Limited Edition Pink Orchid Flat Iron. I think my all time favorite flat Iron I have ever used is the GHD. It just always does the trick, is very sturdy, and heats up in seconds. I LOVE IT!! And, take a look at this cute limited edition one you can get at http://www.sephora.com/ It has purple plates! It comes in this sturdy clutch like case to keep it in or use for makeup or other products when traveling. It’s perfect for a special Valentines Day gift for your teenage daughter, niece, friend, or definitely yourself too!

Some of these products were provided from PR for possible review. I was not paid for this post and I only share products and items I would 100 % reccomend to you all!!
Hi Everyone! If you’re like me, you have quite a few different hair styling products. Maybe a curling iron, flat iron, blow dryer, etc. And, there is not really a “cute” way to store these besides setting them on your bathroom counter and creating a mess of cords. I found this holder, “Cool Care”, by AmericanBeauty and it is the perfect way to organize, and protect myself from the heat of these tools.
I love that this holder comes in two styles, one for your bathroom counter top or one that you can mount in the wall. These can fit most hairdryers, curling irons, and hair straighteners.
The names of the game here are convenience, safety, and functionality. These are not cute, or “pretty” but they have made my bathroom counter top look a whole lot more organized, and made reaching for my blowdryer and straightener a lot easier. I never again have to worry about the heat from the tools melting something on my counter top.
You can look at all these products at: http://www.americanbeauty.ws/CoolCare-Curling-Iron-Flat-Iron-Wall-Mounted-Safety-Stainless-Steel.html I really enjoy sharing with all of you my “beauty finds” and I’m dying to know what you’ve found lately!?
Let me know!

I received these products from the company for consideration. I was not paid for this review, and my opinions are always completely honest. I would only share with you all the things I REALLY love.
Hey Everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I had the opportunity to help out at the Minnesota Bride Look of Love wedding fair, as well as do makeup for a few lovely girls for a high school dance.
I wanted to share with you all some before and afters from some recent eyelash extension clients. I hope these photos give you a good idea of how eyelash extensions can really make a huge difference and still look natural, or dramatic depending on the look you are going for.
Don’t forget to take advantage of my February eyelash extension special of $50 off a full set booked this month!!!! http://lovelobeauty.com/main/wordpress/?p=247

Hey Guys! Today I wanted to show you all what eyelash extensions often look like before you get them filled, and then what they should look like after a fill. I get a lot of questions about “fill” appointments. A fill is your appointment that helps you maintain your eyelash extensions. Since extensions will fall out gradually, usually people need a fill on average of 3-4 weeks. Those of you that have had a full set before, if you go into your service provider with eyelashes still on, you will have something called a “fill” instead of a full set. Fill’s usually range from $80- $150 depending on the type of lash you need applied.
Erica just got her eyelashes filled and I wanted to show you guys what they looked like before and after. The photo that you will see is Erica’s lashes about 4-5 weeks grown out.
Here’s what Erica had to say:
“Thank you Lauren for doing such an awesome job, you are one of the kindest people I have ever met. These things are life changing! I have had mine done now for about 6 or 7 months, (by Lauren) and I am so happy I started them.
I had them done before by someone else in Minneapolis and it looked like I had only 5 on each eye. Honestly, there was NO WAY I could have made those things look good. So, I went into Lauren after a co-worker had referred me. I waited 2 weeks for the 10 that I did have, to fall off so I could start fresh.
I have been a stylist for the last 12 years and I currently own my own company as well as rent a spot to do hair. Make up has NEVER been this easy! I don’t even need much now! At least that’s how I feel about it. I also have 3 young boys and need to be able to go anywhere in a hurry. Having the eyelash extensions makes me feel like I can go anywhere fast, because I don’t need much make up. Thanks Lauren! ” ~Erica Conlon, December 2011
