"Never knew a place like this exsisted for a girl like me! I was so excited to find Jennifer and stay for 3 days....which I managed to turn into 5 days. I felt so comfortable being me! And Jennifer is a beautiful woman but not full of herself, she made me laugh the whole time!" Stephanie-Renee August 2015
What an amazing summer we had! I really enjoyed the 3 day weekends I got to share with several of my girls. As we say goodbye to summer and head into winter I encourage you to check out my makeup & fashion advice page on this site to help keep you updated about new trends. Also if you have never reached out to me I encourage you to do so. I have helped 1,000's of women along on their journey. I am a makeup artist, a chef, a fashionista and also a trans woman just like you. And if you are a recreational C/D or a girl living the life I know I can help you!!!
If you have found this page and me then you are searching for a safe space where you can come to explore your truth. Many times we are blocked by the image in the mirror and we need to see our self as "our self" for the first time in order to continue to grow. That is why I am here for you- to assist you. Maybe to hold your hand for that first time going out in public and out to lunch. Or a makeup lesson to bring out the beauty that you do not see. I am here.
Imagine learning the "do's" and "don'ts" about makeup, fashion and hair/wigs? Imagine having your own stylist help you by doing your makeup & hair prior to going out to women's clothing stores to try on outfits. Experience the 2 hour photo shoot with our new photographer Andrew Wayne, that includes 5 outfit changes, professional makeup and wig work by me and 24 images of your choice to cherish for a life-time! Just think of the knowledge you will take home with you after a 4 hour hands on makeup lesson! Just think of the empowerment you will feel as you leave with the tools to recreate the look that was taught to you! Whether it is a simple makeup application, a 4 hour hands on lesson or a 3-7 day “gender retreat” we are here to serve you in a safe and supportive space! I have helped 1,000‘s of CD/TG women obtain their personal goals by offering her personal wealth of experience. Stop dreaming and start living it NOW! Make Summer 2014 the year you finally give yourself the gift that you deserve!
