SUICIDE: Songs by Stephanie Kong

I’m sure you’re probably thinking ‘Suicide is a terrible title to give to a blog post.’  In correlation with my project, La Nuit Noire, a ball to raise suicide awareness and prevention, I am going to start incorporating stories of suicide into my regular fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and pr content. I know, it’s a little different, but necessary…  Since publicly announcing La Nuit Noire just a few short weeks ago, I have been absolutely blown away by the number of people who have opened up to me about their stories encountering suicide. Whether attempting suicide themselves, struggling with suicidal thoughts, or losing a loved one to suicide, so many people are affected and yet, it takes something powerful for people to open up about it.

REVIEW: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner

How embarrassing is it when you run around all day, finally have a minute to pee, look in the bathroom mirror and realize you rubbed off half your eye liner on one eye! Ugh!  Not to worry ladies – stila cosmetics has solved the problem: Ever since my ballerina days when we used to use jet black liquid eye liner to draw half-inch wings off our eyes before going on stage, I’ve always steered away from liquid eye liner. But, when I received this stila liquid eye liner in a swag bag during my trip to New York Fashion Week, I decided I’d give it a try.

An Evening Filled with Fashion & Fantasy

I know, I know, I’ve been slacking on my blog posts, but that’s only because so many exciting things have been happening with Pretty Living PR! As a prime example, this past Tuesday we held a glamorous event filled with Fashion and Fantasy to launch the second issue of Pretty Living Magazine.  The sparkling evening, benefitting Make-A-Wish®, was held at Perlé in Market Square. We packed the venue with celebrity guests, shopping vendors, paparazzi, and other fabulous attendees. Take a look at some of my favorite moments from the event: First things first, as a former ballerina, I cannot get over the lavender tutu custom designed for me by Tidal Cool Creations. How stunning is this?
