The ElianaSDesign customer is soft, romantic, chic, adventurous and strong. She loves color, stands out through the subtle detailing of her clothing and is not afraid to draw a bit of attention. Most importantly, she knows who she is and what kind of life she wants for herself. As a designer, Eliana creates this woman through detailed construction, picking high quality textiles and choosing silhouettes that produce pieces that her customer with keep and use in her wardrobe for years to come. "

This week Eliana is giving away her Exotic Pearl Dream Earrings and Headband set from her Fall 2012 collection.

Please contact me within 48 hours to claim your prize.

This weeks giveaway is sponsored by Bain De Terre.
One reader will win a hair product goody basket with the following Bain De Terre hair care products:

Bain De Terre Purité Healthy Color Protect Shampoo & Conditioner
This shampoo and conditioner is great for several reasons.  1-It smells great.  2-The conditioner is nice and thick and creamy, which I like.  3-It is COMPLETELY free of several harmful chemicals including sulfates, parabens, formaldehyde, gluten, and mineral oil (hence the name "Purite").

Bain De Terre Rise N' Shine Volumizing Foam
I really like this volumizing foam because it's not too heavy, but when I use it on my clients there is a noticeable difference with how much volume their hair has.  It has a unique, liquid-to-foam formula designed to lift and support the hair while leaving it healthy, full and shiny. 

Bain De Terre Infinite Hold Firm Finishing Spray 
A great, strong hold hairspray that smells nice.  It contains natural flax seed and bodifying properties to nourish and protect the hair while providing firm styling support.

 You could WIN all four of these products!

Eliana Smith Fall 2012 Look Book

October 22, 2012
Over the summer I had the opportunity to do hair and makeup for Eliana Smith Designs for her Official Fall 2012 Look Book.  
In Eliana's words: 
"The overall theme in my Fall 2012 collection is my own vision of a ‘western woman’ experiencing India for the first time. In these images we follow two such ladies as they travel and experience the exotic delights of a new culture through their own beautiful, detailed experiences"
