OPEN: Mass Art Made Boutique

MassArt Made is Massachusetts’ first college-affiliated retail boutique, offering art and design work exclusively crafted by alumni, students, faculty, and staff of Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Many of the nation’s top art & design schools have started to add these types of boutiques as a way to showcase the talent of its students; it’s become a growing trend. It’s exciting that Boston finally has one to call our own. Ten percent of the store’s gross income benefits MassArt scholarships. 
The store itself  boasts over 50 artists, all hand-picked by a jury to be included in the opening merchandise assortment with a diverse collection of unique, handmade products as well as commercially produced merchandise. Customers can scan QR codes to learn about artists over the store’s audio system as they shop the boutique.
Their mission is, "To put MassArt talent on display and sell objects that underscore the creative impact of MassArt in a variety of industries and to create stronger connections between the college, the students, the alumni, and the surrounding community."
Open: Mon-Sat 10-7pm/Sun 12-6pm

Troi Young: Boston's Super Stylist

When you walk into Avanti Salon, you might find clients and the staff surrounding master stylist, Troi Young. Why? He is truly enticing to watch and you may learn a thing or two. As I said, even the staff knows that. He is a genius and when you sit in his chair, just let him work his magic. Troi knows what looks good and if you have been seeking the right style, he is your man. I have known Troi for awhile was enthralled when I had the chance for him to cut and color my hair. For a split second, I thought I was Winona Ryder in Edward Scissorhands. Hair was flying and it feels like his hands are the scissors.

His background is quite impressive. He was in the union working on movies, theater productions, and magazines. He has been on the Newbury block for almost twenty five years owning his own salon and working at the best in the business. He started with clients like Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, Reese Witherspoon, New Kids on the Block, and Rose McGowan. This guy knows his stuff. I felt like a celebrity sitting in his chair. Currently he says, ladies are loving curls and the secret to a great cut is knowing how the clients' hair works with the shape of their head. When I asked what he loves most about his job, he tells me, "It's the look on their faces when I've made them look as no one has before (priceless) and teaching others what I have been taught." I love him!

MAKEUP REPORT: Rouge Coco Shine

I could not help myself when I heard about this amazing new makeup invention; a gloss and lipstick in one. You know when you put on a gloss, but there is not enough color? Then when you put on a lipstick, there is not enough shine. This is the perfect combination of both. It is called Rouge Coco Shine by Chanel of course! 

Inspired by the alluring Coco Chanel, the colors are mainly named after Coco and her boyfriend Boy Capel's travels. The most popular of course is Boy named after Capel. It is a nude with a hint of pink and looks great on everyone. 

The product is a fusion of both lipstick and gloss. It feels so amazing on the lips and is extremely hydrating. Oh how genius? I have been waiting for something like this for years. Walla, Coco Shine. It is now one of the most used products on the Chanel runway. The new trend in makeup is here and we aren't you enticed?

Make a Wish

I adore little trinkets. They are one of the best things in life....it's the small things right? When I saw this particular charm at Gracie Finn on Union Park, I was thrilled. Not only do these charms have this unique, antique look to them, they open for you to put any special wish you desire to come true. I can't reveal mine but I feel the magic of the charm working.
