Be Parisian for a Day


By Abby and Elle

Abby and Elle Upstairs FashionInterested in a fun morning of French beauty with complimentary makeovers and mimosas? (We don’t know about you, but a mimosa rivals a hot cup of strong coffee as our favorite morning pick-me-up!)

A makeup artist will be on hand to offer makeup tips and tricks. And if that weren’t enough, you’ll leave with a swag bag of goodies.

This free event is sponsored by Votre Vu, the French skin care company.

Tickets are limited. If you’re interested in attending, register here.

Saturday, Oct. 12
9:30-11:30 a.m.
Crowne Plaza Cleveland South
5300 Rockside Road, Independence

They had us at mimosas. Hope to see you there!
