New Year, New You!

Out with the old and in with the new!  For our “New Year, New You!” event we had complimentary make-overs, wine, appetizers and limo rides for our lady clients and their guests.

We hosted our make-overs at Benefit Cosmetics Boutique in downtown Los Gatos, where guests received one-on-one pampering. Our limousine services took us from the boutique to a nearby restaurant called, The Wine Cellar, where we made a toast to the new year and to new beginnings. All in attendance agreed it was a wonderful way to start the year.
