As women, we have so many roles that we manage on a daily basis. We are mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, friends, employees, employers, caregivers….Prioritizing these responsibilities is often a challenge, thus taking care of yourself is at the bottom of the list. Pause66 hosts “Shades of You Events,” in order to give women an opportunity to take a break from the routine of life and to foster opportunities for them to nurture themselves physically, emotionally and spiritually. Let’s define sisterhood and come together to enjoy food, fun and inspiration. Come and join us at our next event.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. I Peter 3:3-4


This Shades of You Event will be done as a “Chat and Chew.” You will be able to order from the menu and pay individually for your meal.  We will engage in an open discussion surrounding the theme “Beauty Unmasked.” Let’s have real talk and answer the question, “What makes me feel beautiful?” No matter the age, social class or ethnicity we identify with, we all can relate to this topic. Melissa Perry, from Beaute Sauvage, will be our special guest and she will talk about her natural skin care line and share some beauty tips with us.
