Elizabeth Arden Limited Edition Lipstick!

When it comes to “classic” beauty staples, nothing says class and beauty like the perfect red lipstick! From Marilyn and Audrey to Scarlett and Gwen, some of our most iconic beauties have donned red lips at one time or another!

Trends come and go, nude lips, uber wet gloss etc. etc…. BUT when it comes to making a statement…. RED says it all! Sexy, strong, female and proud!

The following excerpt was taken from the Elizabeth Arden website…

“To commemorate 100 years of beauty innovation, Elizabeth Arden introduces a Limited Edition 100th Anniversary Lipstick in Red Door Red, a red lipstick for the times.

A universal shade of sheer red lipstick in the Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick formula. Sensational shades. Moisturizing color. Lasting effects. Triple Emollient Technology and Vitamins A, C and E and Aloe instantly moisturize and cushion lips for total comfort.

Elizabeth Arden is proud to donate all of the proceeds to Look Good…Feel Better®, a global charitable organization designed to help individuals with cancer look good, improve their self-esteem, and thereby manage their treatment and recovery with greater confidence.”

So, if you’re looking for the “perfect” red lipstick for spring/summer, why not support an amazing cause as well!

Lindzie & Suzanne Fab Fem RAVE!

We are so lucky to be able to do this job… it really is blessing and a joy to make everyone feel FABULOUS!!!!! Here’s another example of the sweet and kind words that Nancy (nbphptos) and I get to hear about the FabFem experience….

These ladies were so fun to work with! It’s so amazing to see the supportive relationship between great friends!!!


I just wanted to thank you for a marvellous time on Monday.

Both you and Crystal made us feel like queens for a day. It was exactly what Susanne and I both needed. Thank you again.

We are both counting down the days until we get to see the shots, we are so darn excited!!

Have a great day! Linzie



Inspired?! Book YOUR session… you deserve it!

Stay Fabulous!

Dani's Fab Fem RAVE!

While we here at the “Fabulous Feminine” do whatever we can to create a unique and amazing experience for all our clients, it is sometimes difficult to explain just what a shoot with us is like. We love that people are curious about what makes our brand of portraiture so different form all the rest. We are also aware that coming from us, thinks may seem slightly bias! LOL
So… we have decided (with express permission from each individual client) to post the raves we have been sent with an “approved” photo from their shoot!

First up is DANI! who is in one word… SEXY!!!

For all of you who believe that beautiful only comes in a size 2….. think again!!! To say that Dani is an “average” woman would be a sin, ’cause there is nothing “average” about this beautiful, curvy, sassy woman!!!

This is what Dani had to say about her time spent with us…

“Working with these beautiful ladies for the the Pin-Up Party was absolutely phenomenal. I personally have done a photoshoot with FabFem before so I knew what fun I had in store. However, this time around I brought a good friend of mine with me to the shoot who has never done this sort of thing. She was very nervous about how she would feel in her outfit and how the pictures would turn out. I told her not to worry and that Nancy and Crystal do nothing less than make you feel 100% comfortable throughout the shoot. Let me tell you how my friend left that photoshoot TOTALLY confident and ready to book another photoshoot! Besides building our confidence and making us feel beautiful in our skin, they accommodated us with chocolate, fruit, and cosmopolitans. They also kept the music pumping to get us in the mood to strut our stuff! I’m pretty sure I can say on behalf of all 3 of us girls who did the photoshoot that we had an amazing time (as always) with the ladies of FabFem. I would definitely recommend these two for so many reasons! I’m ready to book another shoot again! It’s like tattooing, you just want more and more!” - Dani C


Keep checking back for more “Raves” and if this has inspired you to see yourself like never before, contact us to set up your very own session!!!

Stay Fabulous!

Cool Canadian Swag Pt.1

It may be the upcoming Olympics or the fact that I’m loving the new single “Oh Canada” from East Coast rapper Classified… but I’m just feeling the need to share some fabulous Canadian products with everyone! So here’s the first of many to follow…

If you love to treat yourself (even occasionally) to fun, nourishing and ridiculously indulgent products, look no further than this Canadian Made line…

Cake Beauty©

I am totally addicted to this sweet smelling, uber luxurious line of bath & body products!
Heather Reier, founder/creator of Cake Beauty© is from Southern Ontario and her companies mission statement says it all!

Beauty believes in the value and importance of indulgence. Indulgence is good. Women everywhere deserve a moment in their lives to indulge…our goal is to transform that moment to everyday.’ - Heather Reier, Creator,


These Parabin free products are made with nourishing ingredients like shea butter, avocado oil, almond oil and turbinado sugar, just to name a few! Each product has a “key ingredient” list which reads like an overindulgent recipe for sheer goodness! Having said that, here are just a couple of my many faves…

cake-allpurp.jpg The CAKE© All Purpose Treatment Balm is just that! From cuticles to flyaways, dry elbows to unruly eyebrows. this product cures it all AND smells fantastic!!!

_1232009105326.jpg This “airline friendly” trial size pack features Bath & Shower Froths AND Supreme Body Mousse in their two signature fragrances of “It’s a Slice” and “Desserted Island” not to mention the “Milk Made Velveteen hand Lotion” which is just plain indescribable!

Check out their website for more products and the cool celebs that adore them… if you’re looking for a place to get products ASAP, head for my fave purveyor… Second Star to the Right Gift Shop at 226 King St E. in Cambridge, ON. (Don’t worry…I’ll be giving you all the low down on this place in a future blog!)

Miss January 2010

Back in November I worked on the “2010 Rockin’ Hotties” calendar with Dave FM (107.5). This was their very first calendar which featured 12 beautiful, every day women that entered the “Rockin’ Hotties” contest and were chosen by the listeners!

Although we are almost done with the first month of 2010, I thought I would share with you all “Miss January” Christine… what a beautiful and inspirational woman! I had a great time working with her… she makes my job VERY easy!!!

If you would like to download a pdf. version of the calendar, go to… and click on the “Hotties” link.

I will be posting the new “calendar girl” at the beginning of each month!

Stay tuned!!!

Hugs… Crystal xo
