Uncorked & Uncapped: Wine, Beer, and Food Festival for The Arc of Essex County

#HipNJ attended the 3rd annual Uncorked & Uncapped: Wine, Beer, and Food Festival for The Arc of Essex County at the Westminster Hotel in Livingston.

The Arc of Essex County provides comprehensive services and supports to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families ensuring a lifetime of achievement with dignity and full partnership in the community.

We got the opportunity to speak with some of the good-hearted vendors about how special it was to participate in such a worthy cause.

“All of our services are actually provided within the communities,” a spokesperson for The Arc of Essex County says. “There is a community engagement, community involvement, and certainly community support for all the individuals that we serve, as well as the communities in which they live and work.”

#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 www.LashHouseBeautyBoutique.com for more information!
