Peachy’s Puffs: Original Candy & Cigarette Company in SF

In the New Year, I have taken on the role of booking agent/social media marketer for Peachy’s Puffs, the original candy and cigarette company in SF!  I’ve enjoyed carrying the trays filled with candy at corporate and private parties around the Bay Area, but it is cool to now be on dealing with the business side of the company.

Peachy D’Ambrosio, the founder of Peachy’s Puffs, established the company in 1988, calling her cigarettes “puffs” and adding her first name, hence the name Peachy’s Puffs was born.

Modeling

Yesterday, I was contacted by a fashion collaboration site by the name of FStop.FM to be featured as a model.  The site is similar to Model Mayhem, where agencies and brands can interact and collaborate with makeup artists, models, photographers, etc…  I like that the blog has an Instagram type of feed where artists can post new projects and agencies can advertise.  If you want to sign up, be sure to use my profile link: https://www.fstop.fm/#p/Kkarr.  Happy trails to you!

 

Hair Dye Drama

The switch to a Marilyn look didn’t go as planned.  Maybe it’s my skin tone.  I seem to do better with Betty Paige black.  Last night’s experiment trying to go lighter with Revlon light blonde mixture was drama central.  It looked like I had a bright orange tabby cat on my hat at the end of the dye job.  Oh God.  My girlish inner fantasy of perfect blond seemed to tatter like a fraying pair of jeans the more dye I applied to my head.  So long to an idealism that didn’t seem to fit me.  Maybe it was truly some past life recollection that in this life could only be remembered and not accessed.  I suppose all girls have their very own Marilyn fantasy and I, Katherine Robbins Karr, go by Reign Diamond as a stage name.  I like to play up the Jersey Jewish American Princess fantasy with darker locks and I sport Juicy Couture velour sweat suits and bags.  So here’s the scoop on how to “do blonde” if you so dare.

The first dye job may be an orangeish end result.  So from there, you will want to get an ash blonde kit to tone the hair so it will turn a yellowish shade.  You need to make sure it has a blue based tone instead of purple.  According to Bellatory.com, to prepare the dye, mix the chosen color with 10 vol developer with a tinting brush and bowl.  Follow the same process with dyeing the hair and leave the dye in so as to neutralize the orange tone.  Make sure to condition the hair thoroughly.  If you want to make the hair lighter, do it a week later with even more bleach.  Use a pearl, ash, or natural tone of blonde.  If you want your hair to be blonder, leave the mixture in longer.  For care and upkeep, use a purple tone shampoo to keep the hair light.  Of course, if you don’t want to put up with the entire bleaching process and want your hair dark again, get black or dark brown dye!  Happy hair dyeng!

Model Brazilian Waxing Demonstration at Eva’s Aesthetics!

Had quite a day in San Leandro Tuesday doing a model waxing demonstration at Eva’s Aesthetics where my lovely friend Eva works!  It was painful to go through with the waxing, since I hadn’t had enough time to grow the hair out, but it was well worth it for the cool people I met and the beauty products I received!  The products are all natural and great for the environment.  The Clear It Blemish Control Gel contains organic colloidal sulfur and is good for all skin types.  It can be mixed with equal parts of the Detox Clay Mask for breakouts and scarring as a powerful healing formula.  The Green Clean Invigorating Body Wash contains pine essential oil to condition and clean the body and face, sea minerals to cleanse and prevent dryness, and glycolic extract to provide gentle exfoliation!  I will definitely be going back for another demonstration in the next month!  ❤ ❤ ❤

Google/Youtube Video Project for Skunkfunk in the Haight!

Today was epic in every way possible!  I went to the Haight-Ashbury Skunkfunk clothing store after winding up at the Mission store by accident for a Youtube/Google video project.  I met two other fantastic models, who including moi, made up a killer trifecta for the afternoon shoot!  I had worked with Brandyy Sky at the other store for a promo window modeling gig.  Apparently, her father gave her the name ’cause of his love of Brandy and Sky Vodka!  Too funny.  The other girl Kelly Shepard was a Fiona Apple lookalike with a rad sense of humor.  My first outfit was a multicolored jungle theme dress that tied in front.  The second look was a red and blue striped form-fitting dress.  I joked to Kelly that I felt like a Betty homemaker with my very own blueberry muffin tray bending over a hot oven!  I brought my fire and seductive Marilyn edge to the filming session in front of a black backdrop and then inside one of the dressing rooms.  Later, we filmed on the street and got our last shots doing runway prowls up Haight Street!  So many giggles were had.  I enjoyed most the friendly and playful nature of the team and everyone’s willingness to share the spotlight.  I got a lovely $100 store credit for my participation.  Stay tuned for the video footage!! <3<3<3
