#HipNJ Cares: Dressed by Lori

#HipNJ’s Kelly Dillon stopped by the Dressed by Lori‘s Dress for Success charity event in Millburn.  Kelly chatted store owner Lori Csik about her passion for fashion and more!

Dressed for Success is very near and dear to Lori’s heart.  The foundation’s mission is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

An organization that supported the cause was HIRE STYLE.  This mother-daughter duo of Tracy Alexander and Marlene Clarkin are personal trainers for women’s wardrobes.  They chatted it up with Kelly about how they like to help busy women stay in touch with their fashion sense!

There something for everyone here at Dressed by Lori and My Hire Style! Stop, drop, & shop!

#HipNJ: Lash House, Livingston

Kelly Dillon is behind the scenes again for #HipNJ, this time at Livingston’s Lash House Beauty and Boutique!

Master Lash artist Suzette Zuena created Lash House because she had clientele who were always on the go and had no time to go to a traditional spa all day for services! She decided to make it a much easier and quick experience!

Suzette explains that the process of lash extensions involves synthetic lashes being applied to one’s own natural lashes one by one in order to create one’s own desired and customized look!

Lash House has seven certified stylists on staff, who are sure to make you look beautiful at the end of your visit! Lash House also has treatments such as makeup, facials, waxing, and even tinting and priming of lashes, which is an alternative to the synthetic lashes and lasts about 6 to 8 weeks.

The process is quick and easy. All it takes is a consultation to discover you desired look, cleaning of the lashes, and then the lashes are placed. It’s that simple!

This Lash House treatment gives you that younger, beautiful, and more awake look without the fuss! Book your consultation today! Visit for more information!
