Washington Cash Holiday Showcase Photos

Hello everyone,

I would like to thank Washington C.A.S.H for hosting their 2010 Holiday Showcase at the Northwest African American Museum located at 2300 S Massachusetts Street, Seattle, Washington 98144.  The Showcase gave me an opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs and to also meet so many fascinating people.  I would personally like to thank everyone that came out tonight to show support for Washington Cash by helping to make tonights Showcase a smashing success.  I enjoyed meeting all of you.

I would like to thank the Northwest African American Museum for hosting tonights Showcase.  The venue was absolutely wonderful.  I truly enjoyed the uniqueness of the Museum and I urge everyone to please visit the Northwest African American Museum and discover a piece of Seattle’s history.  I did take photographs of the collection of unique sculptures and period pieces but due to copyright protection I am unable to place them on my website.  If you would like to view this collection for yourself, I urge you to go the the Museum and see them for yourself, you will really enjoy it.

BellaOrganics: The Organic Beauty Company Has Become A Fair Trade Certified™ Licensed Retailer

This is the announcement that I have been waiting to tell you. On October 12, 2010, I received confirmation that my license to become Fair Trade Certified™ was granted. I owe a personal thank you to TIERRA DEL FORTE | SR MANAGER APPAREL AND BEAUTY PRODUCTS of TransFairUSA. for all of her help and encouragement while I was designing my product labels for final approval. Receiving Fair Trade Certification™ means so much to me. My Mother’s Passion for Equality and Justice will be the driving force that will propel BellaOrganics: The Organic Beauty Company to become a Champion for Fair Trade.

The reason why I waited to reveal this news is because I was awaiting the arrival of my Fair Trade Certified™ product labels to place them on my Certified Fair Trade™ African Shea Butter product Collections Butter Me Beautiful™ and the BellaEarth™ Collections. I’m still awaiting the shipment of labels that I ordered but they have not arrived yet, so I decided to reveal my great news to you today.

If you look to your right, you’ll notice that I placed a picture of myself on my website, Hello, that’s me BellaMary, nice to meet you. I have also included the Fair Trade Certified™ label and the PayPal Verification seal also. When you visit my shop, please click on the Collections Icons to reveal the products that reside within each one. I will be adding more products in the near future, Certified Fair Trade™ Beauty Products, that I will incorporate within my product line.

I would like to thank the following people for assisting me with taking such a great picture, with a BellaSmile.

I would like to thank Dr. Wendy B. Crisafulli, DDS, yes she is my dentist! I would not have such a Beautiful smile without her. If you would like to have a BellaSmile please contact Crisafulli Dental 18920 Bothell Way NE, STE 200 Bothell, Washington 98011 (425) 483 – 5838 and receive your very own BellaSmile with a gentle caring touch. Please follow the link to discover what you could receive if you become a new patient of Dr. C’s Be sure to tell them that BellaMary sent you ;)

My thanks goes out to Blue of Soul The Salon, 2508 5th Ave, Seattle, Washington 98125 (206) 441 – 3308 for giving me such a sexy and beautiful hair style. I love my extensions, they are absolutely beautiful. Everyone says that I look really nice. Thanks Blue. Alexandria, the owner of Soul The Salon chose the hair for me, she knew that this style would suit me and that it would really look nice on me. Thank you Alexandria. I highly recommend that you contact Soul The Salon and reveal the Bella or Bello within you.

And last but not least, I would like to thank Erica Sanchaz, a freelance beauty consultant working at Nordstrom in the Estee Lauder makeup department, for my makeup. She really made it look so natural. She used a light foundation with Antique Gold base and I look gorgeous don’t you think? If you would like to contact Erica Sanchaz, please e-mail her at Princesserica1@hotmail.com. That’s the number one, not the letter capital I.
