Services at Town Center

This month I wanted to highlight all the super awesome services you  can find at Town Center. Yep, it’s not all about just shopping and eating. Let’s talk about custom invitations (paper goods), custom home designs, and custom beauty analysis. Yep, and all these services are tucked inside stores you pass by at Town Center all the time.

Paper Goods: First, there’s Paper Source which is usually my favorite place to go to get gifts for just about anyone, especially a super perfect card. So you can imagine how excited I was when I found out they just revamped their invitation designs. Think Etsy, but without the skepticism of the rando person on the other end of your order. Here’s a few of my favorite designs.  

  You can pop into the store and they can help you at any time to pick out just the right design and color combos for your event. I mean they had the black and white stripe envelope inlay. Hubbba hubba. Also, they hold in store events all the time, and they can help you create anything your heart can dream up.

Cooking Classes: Okay guys, you know I'm not the biggest cook, right!? Well there's a reason why this isn't a food blog. This girl loves good food, but only will cook when there is literally no other option. Or I have a lot of time on my hands. So I was pretty excited to learn that William Sonoma offers cooking classes for Adults on Sundays AND cooking classes for kids too just on Saturdays. How cool is that!? Also, they offer in store events too. I was blown away by the types of classes they offer and can't wait to sign up (in-store) for their next event. Also - they are the only place in KC to order custom ovens. They are literally works of art from France!

In-home Interior Design Consultations: Alright mommies - have you ever wanted to update your kid's room, play room any spaces they are in? Well head over to Pottery Barn Kids (and Pottery Barn - for regular home needs). You can make an appointment for them to come over to your home to do in home consult to make your spaces perfect for your little ones and you. I was blown away that they had enough support to do such an awesome service. I love home decor and think when Kev and I need to spruce up our home for little ones (not for a few years though) this will be just what we need. 

Hair Styling: Have you ever wondered if you had the right hair cut for your face shape? Well then head over to Pinkie Couture salon at Town Center Plaza and talk to James about having your face shape consultation. I was pretty intimidated to have mine done, I was certain that he would want to cut my hair, color it someway I wouldn't like. But he didn't do that at all. He pulled my hair back, pointed out my features and showed me that my face shape is a triangle. So keeping my hair long with long layers what exactly what I needed to do. He did tell me to add highlights around my face to bring the eye up. And since I currently have my hair ombred - I was super nervous/skeptical about changing up my hair like that. But loved understanding that kind of information. 

Here's a fun diagram I found of typical face shapes and I asked James to highlight a few key points of what you should do with these face shapes. And head into his salon to have your face shape analysis completed and then make an appointment to have your hair and make up done with him or your favorite stylist. 

   image via      Oval  is the universal face shape that most hair styles will apply. To get this effect I can apply both cut and color to create the right look. Just like bangs will push the focal point down so will dark colors .   Round , in most cases the goal is to lengthen the face with longer hair. To create length for shorter hair I add in height with volumizer.    Long or Oblong  faces all ready have all the length so making the face appear shorter is the goal. Most of the time this face will have what is commonly called a 5 head. in these cases bangs or side sept swoops are most recommended. This will keep the round but push the focal point back toward the eyes.    Square  faces are usually looking to change there focal point up or down this is usually done with an asymmetrical part including a swoop. Color in the part line can be a good answer to pull the visual line up toward the eyes.    Heart shape  faces are another good face shape that bangs are a great style to wear. It's easy to add a side part and swoop to change this face shape to an oval.    Diamonds  are very similar to the oval. Color will play a big part of balancing out the facial features to appear like a flattering oval.

Make-Up: Also, have you wanted to update your makeup game? Or want to learn about the newest techniques and tools for your skin care and daily routine? Head over to Sephora's Beauty Studio and they will totally hook you up. They have the a-la-cart type menu, where you can pick a service that you want extra help in or just want them to do for a night out on the town. It's a great way to either learn about lip color (or any other section of your makeup routine) our pay $50 (worth of product) to have have your whole look completed. I went to them and asked for them to do my eyes. I told them I like to have fun with makeup and would enjoy any color and liner they wanted to do. So I loved when Tessa (she's awesome) told me she wanted to do a copper look for my eyes. She grabbed the perfect shades from Make-Up For Ever to use. Check out the diagram and colors that you can pick up today. They also have the Pantone Color IQ skin tone matcher. This is probably the coolest thing I have ever scene. It reads from three point on your face to pick up your exact skin tone color. Then it will show you all of the foundations in the store that match your skin tone exactly - it's amazing. You can then tell it what kind of foundation you want (powder finish, liquid, full coverage, little coverage) and it will show you the exact ones that will be perfect for you. Sounds amazing right. You will never have to guess if your make up will match ever again. 

 Here are links to all achieve my make up look:   1)    M510    all over lid to brow bone 2)    M536    through crease 3)    M738    through crease, lay down at outer corner first 4)    I736    Outer corner of lid 5)    1648    inner corner of lid 6)    I414    on inner corner/ tear duct to highlight 7)    M630    in outer v to deeper look 8) Mix    I736    &    M738    on lower lash line.    Becca Opal Highlighter    for cheeks,    Anastasia Brow Duality in Camile/Sand    for eye highlight (pictured above),    Anastasia Brow wiz in Soft Brown    for defining my brows,    Urban Decay Whiskey 27/7 pencil    for eye liner,    Lancome Hypnose Drama    for mascara,    Nars Dolce Vita Velvet Matte Pencil    for color,    Dior #363    for pinkier gloss.
