HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU STOOD IN FRONT OF YOUR CLOSET CURSING THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR? ODDS ARE, IN THE 62 DAYS BETWEEN HALLOWEEN AND NEW YEAR’S DAY, YOU’LL BE INVITED TO MORE EVENTS THAN THE ENTIRE REST OF THE YEAR. 

Keeping up with a great new outfit for each gathering is exhausting and unrealistic. If just thinking about the pressure to look great and keep a jolly attitude this season already has you burned out, the good news is that you’re not alone, and help has arrived. EverydayMae.com is a new Rochester-based blog to show you how planning and creativity will take you from fall family photos to ringing in 2018 with style. 

TRY IT ON

Nothing is worse than mentally piecing together an outfit, only to find just hours (or within the hour) before your party that the look doesn’t come together or worse, doesn’t fit. Now is the time to try on all of your seasonal pieces. Nail down your basic “holiday look” and try any fun new trends ahead of time.

Val posted on Facebook, “I can’t thank you guys enough for supporting my wacky adventures (really my whole radio career since 2011!) and tuning in when you can. Some of you even helped me move up the ladder, and I can’t thank you enough for that either. Last week I mentioned how much I appreciate the creativity I can bring to these stations, and I hope to do more of the same. Thank you all! Seriously!!”  You can help Val celebrate by becoming her friend on Facebook and liking Quick Country 96.5 and Z-Rock 107.7.  

Sara Drewry Clausen, regional director of the American Heart Association, comments to Val, “You are a talented and very creative woman! Congrats on the great year already in Rochester!!!!”

Sarah Fisher Wolf says, “She has done some awesome things for Z-Rock and for the local music scene.” She tells her, “Keep doing what you do best, girl!”

Regional Operations Manager at Townsquare Media James Berry Wilde comments, “You have blossomed this past year on both. You sound great on-air and have brought tremendous energy and enthusiasm.”

I Am A Beautiful Rochester Woman: Tammy Lynn Darby

Tammy Darby read I Am a Beautiful Rochester WomAn stories in Rochester Women magazine and thought it would be fun, but never expected to be featured in it herself. When she was approached with the opportunity to get a makeover at the Rochester Women’s Fall Expo last year, she jumped at the chance. 

GETTING A MAKEOVER

“I love to get dressed up, and I have had a makeover once before, but I do not wear makeup on a daily basis,” explains Tammy.  “I felt like a different person, not only for the way I looked, but for stepping outside of my comfort zone and getting onstage to do the makeover at the 2016 Women’s Fall Expo. I never thought I would be strutting my stuff down a cat walk.”

She enjoyed talking with Katie Kirckof, owner of GLAM Beauty Lounge (formerly BB Make-up) before the makeover and observing what colors Katie used on her. “I would definitely recommend getting a makeover to friends and family. You may get introduced to a color or product that you normally wouldn’t consider trying and you will feel amazing,” says Tammy.

Written by Brittney Marschall

Hair reflects the identity of an individual through personality, creativity and beauty. Here is the latest scoop from three local salons on hair trends that will help you get your glow on for the summer. 

COLOR TRENDS 

Blondes 

Amber Berry, owner of Aberry Hair at Sola Salon Studios is stocking up on toner because at the top of our trend list is blonding. Blonde is no longer a pale yellow; it has become a kaleidoscope of colors from warm to cool tones. On the cool side is platinum blonde, and summer is the perfect time to make the classic change. With the addition of pastel and gray undertones, and new trends like blorange (pretty peach tones added to blonde locks), there are options to achieve any look.
