I have spent the last few days in NYC for our Green & Gorgeous event with Shape Magazine so I am a day late introducing this week’s Queen City Pretty! I hope you all forgive me as I know you are super excited to learn beauty and pampering tips from trendy Charlottean, Tonya Braddock, Co-Owner of the super cool Twinkle Boutique. Continue reading to learn how Tonya treats herself after a long week and what beauty items she can not live without!
If I were to peek in YOUR makeup bag, what would I find? Bare Minerals foundation & bronzer, my current blush is “Santa Rose” by Rimmel London, Dior show mascara, Burt’s Bee lip balm in Fig, & clear lip glass by MAC. I also have an assortment of eye shadows mostly by Bare Minerals & MAC.
As part of the Twinkle team, you provide women access to trendy and stylish accessories,what is YOUR favorite accessory? Obviously, I’m a huge fan of jewelry & I love pearls and anything that sparkles. One piece of jewelry can add so much to an outfit and whenever I’m stuck with deciding what piece to wear I can always rely on my signature Twinkle earrings. I tend to grab for them more often than not because they offer a lot of sparkle & they literally go with every outfit!
After a long week, how do you pamper yourself? A glass of wine and hot bubble bath with “unconditional love” by Philosophy.
What spa/salon service can you not live without? Pedicures! I try to fit in a pedi every week and love having my toes done in either Ballet Slipper by Essie or Bubble Bath by OPI.
Who is your beauty icon? Audrey Hepburn. She embodied not only the old Hollywood glam but she was so classic with her style that if she were alive today I’m sure that she would still be viewed as a fashionable trend setter.(Audrey is absolutely an icon. She was a true Beauty..inside and out)
What is your definition of Beauty? Beauty is exhibiting grace & charm but also kindness & humility, knowing your self worth, & being confident of your individuality.
Any last words? The signature Twinkle earrings that I mentioned above can be found here: http://bit.ly/9mogLN
I want to thank Tonya for taking the time to be this week’s Queen City Pretty. Make sure you check out Twinkle Boutique. They have some great items that I think you’ll want to add to your list of must-haves.
Come back tomorrow for a photo blog about our Green & Gorgeous Event in NYC with Shape Magazine. It was a great success and I can’t wait to start doing similar events in the Queen City.
Next week’s feature is the lovely Lara Romack, Manager of Belk Cosmetics in South Park Mall.
