Musings from Raspberry Moon – March 2017 Newsletter

Happy March!

So as always I am crazy behind! So this month’s Newsletter is going to be about all the crazy amount of events that we have taking place in April!

Rainbow and ShamrocksAnd if you’re looking for an awesome way to spend the evening tonight, you can still buy tickets at the door for Spa for Spays! Details below.

And a smidge about eyes BUT we will be posting lots of fun facts, product info and eye enhancements over the next few weeks on Instagram and Facebook so be sure that you are following me!

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, sure ’tis like a morn in spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter, you can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy, all the world seems bright and gay,
And When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, sure, they steal your heart away.

This month we celebrate the Irish, because who doesn’t love the Irish!

The Eyes Have It In March

I always think we should talk about eyes in March – some how it just seems to go with St Patty’s Day.Get the dark Egyptian eye with our Kohl eyeliners

Here are some interesting facts and ways in which Raspberry Moon can help you achieve the best look possible.

Since 3500 BC items have been used to enhance the eyes. Both men and women applied black or green tones on their eyes and lashes for both style and function. The colors were sometimes used as sun shields, also believed to be aphrodisiacs, and used to evoke the image of the Sun God, Ra.

I have a few Kohl Eyeliners from India – they glide super well. They are on sale for only $3. When they are gone they are gone!

From 1533 to 1603 women dyed their brows and lashes in reddish tones in honor of Queen Elizabeth.  The ingredients used to create the dyes were a dangerous mixture of rhubarb, and oil of vitriol which is a concentrated form of sulfuric acid.

There are a wide variety of shades (non-toxic!) that can be used to enhance your natural lashes and brows. You may be amazed at what a little coloring will do to create a beautiful frame for your eyes.

Brow Tinting and Lash Tinting are $15 each

Upcoming March Events

Spa for SpaysWe are proud to be a Sponsor and participating in the 11th Annual Spa for Spays Event hosted by Speak for Animals. I will be out of the office all day setting up and will also be offering EcoFin Hydrating Treatment for the Hands and Feet. At Zen, 924 S. Main Street, Greenville, SC

We have all sorts of great things going on this year, some new services, awesome Silent Auction items, and a Boutique full of all sorts of great new or gently used goodies for sale, and the ever popular Silly Shot Photo Booth.

We are still looking for practitioners, silent auction items, and items for the Boutique. So organize those closets, clean out those drawers and help support our furry, 4 legged friends.

There may be spa services still available – if so you can pay $40 at the door tonight. Otherwise, $20 at the door still gets you in for the Boutique, Silent Auction, and all the other fun!
