Breezin’ Chats – Episode 20: Transforming Lives Through Makeup (Feat. Dr. Marnita)

On this episode of Breezin’ Chats, Cindy Dervech and her event director Jessie Soplinski talk with featured guest Dr. Marnita. We will be stepping out of comfort zone to chat with a person whose mission is to provide a world class service and be a leader in the Micro Pigmentation Industry.

As her love of learning grew stronger after attending Baldwin-Wallace College and earning her BA in Chemistry, she applied and was accepted to one of the top schools in the Midwest, Case Western Reserve University. There she not only excelled in academics, but she was awarded “Excellence in Graduate Student Teaching” for five consecutive years.

Our guest later went on to earn a Master’s degree and a Ph.D. in Chemistry and accepted an Assistant Professor position at GMI Engineering and Management Institute in Flint, Michigan.

With that burning desire of fashion, modeling, and beauty still in her heart she was able to realign herself, after years of research in skin chemistry, with her passion in the industry of beauty enhancement.

She opened her first Spa in Beachwood, Ohio, 15 years ago. Using beauty enhancement services, her goal is to help people feel as good on the inside as they look on the outside. By continuing to serve others while successfully battling cancer, she believed that she could show there was nothing that you couldn’t overcome! She opened her second Spa in Tampa, Florida, in 2011, called Spa Cafe International. Warm, approachable and down to earth Our guests love for people and their transformation shines through as she spends time one-on-one with her clients and friends.

BREEZIN’S TOP TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE YOUR SAINT PATRICK’S DAY PARTY A SUCCESS

Saint Patrick’s Day is coming around the corner. For more than 1,000 years the Irish have been observing their special day. Saint Paddy’s is more than beer and leprechauns but a feast of Saint Patrick and celebration the heritage and culture of the Irish. Here are some of top tips on how to make this year’s celebration better than your last.

1. Decorations

Everything green! Decorate the tables with green table covers and appropriately themed centerpieces. The first impression is always important to set the vibe of the party. If green is too basic, try incorporating orange and white details. The Irish flag, shamrock confetti, balloons, and gold-wrapped chocolate coins can also be laid around the room. And lastly, leave something out for the guest to wear to get them into spirit. Guests will get a kick out of bearded beads or mini leprechaun hats.

2. Entertainment and Music

To keep the tradition alive, hire a Celtic band to play at your party. Music was a way the Celtics passed down history, legends, and religion by turning the stories into songs. And don’t forget about the kids this holiday. Though watching bag pipes be played and Irish step dancers perform aren’t the typical party-entertainment. Face painters are fun way to excite the kids and keep them busy. Face painting isn’t only for kids but having shamrocks and rainbows painted on your guest’s faces are a way for everyone to be festive. Here are some other some entertainment options to surprise your guests with.
• Leprechauns
• Stilt Walkers
• Celtic Dancers
• Celtic Bands
• Bag Pipers
• Beer Tasting

 

3. Food

You probably heard of eating corned beef and cabbage being a traditional dish to eat on St. Patrick’s Day. However, it isn’t the national dish of Ireland but a more affordable option. During the time of immigration to U.S., the first generation of Irish-Americans were in search a similar dish of their homeland. Since prices were too high, they settled for corned beef and cabbage instead of the pricey pork and potatoes at the time. Don’t worry though, if that doesn’t sound appetizing, we have other ideas for food that may be more appealing!
• Irish Soda Bread
• Shepherd’s Pie
• Shamrock Shaped Cupcakes
• Charcuterie board with a rainbow display/Pot o’ Gold

 

4. Cocktails

This year go beyond green beer but add a whole Drink Bar with some of our favorite cocktails…and maybe with a leprechaun bartender! Don’t forget the way the drinks look is almost as important as how they taste!
• Guinness beer- of course!
• Pot o’ Gold Shots
• Lucky Charms Shots
• Irish Mint Mojito
• Shamrock Sour
• Green Apple Sangria

 

Breezin’ Entertainment & Productions offers premier service that is sure to both relieve the stress of the event planning process and guarantee that the entertainment that is provided exceeds all expectations.

Breezin’s Top Five 2020 Wedding Trends

A new decade means new trends. These are some of Breezin’s favorite trends of 2020 that will make your wedding not one to forget.

1. Specialty Liquor Bars

Are you a champagne connoisseur? A tequila fan? Or maybe you just want to allow your guest to get hands on. You can’t go wrong with a show-stopping bar moment that ties in an activity.

  • A bubbly bar on a bar cart during cocktail hour or when cake is being served. 
  • A self service drink station can keep your guests entertained throughout the night when they can go mix up the couple’s signature cocktail. This also can give some great backdrops for photos.

 

2. Food

Every celebration involves an indulgence. Food that involves a form of interaction will keep your guests entertained throughout the evening. Even just a nice display will make your wedding instagram-worthy. Here are some of our favorite new ways to arrange food. 

  • Abundant charcuterie board centerpieces
  • Edible centerpiece
  • Non-cake cakes such as cookies, cinnabuns, or an Ice cream Sundae bar
  • Late night snack. Guests will appreciate a late night food menu once they are tired and have visited the bar a few times.
  • Don’t forget about your vegan, keto, and gluten free guests! We want everyone to enjoy your day.

3. A 1920’s theme

The roaring 20’s are back and just in time for your wedding. A 1920’s theme will give your guest a blast from the past.

 

  • Jazz bands
  • Strings of pearls and peacock feather center arrangement
  • Poker and black jack tables
  • Cigar roller

4. Venue 

Couples have been wanting more private weddings rather than traditional hotel venues. Opting for an outdoor small wedding over a hotel and restaurant atmosphere will be more personal and intimate. Beautiful backyards, back gardens, and manor house settings can turn your wedding into a fairytale escape.

5. Color 

 Florals, lighting, and bridesmaids dresses are straying away from the classic color scheme. Jewel tones and dark earthy tones are in and kicking pastels out. Customary detailing with an established overall aesthetic will be pleasing. Mood lighting has has also been a huge trend this year. Market lights during the sunset will set the tone of the evening. Lighting has been a bigger pick for decor over flowers.  Here are some other new trends we have been seeing..

  • Pampas grass
  • Market lighting
  • Hanging plants
  • Indoor furniture set up outside

Tips for planning a stress-free holiday party

After a long and exhausting Thanksgiving, the stress of party planning can start to get to some people. But the holiday season is just getting started! This is a time of celebration and we don’t want anybody feeling overwhelmed. With these tips, planning your holiday party will be an easy, stress-free experience!

Prepare before guests arrive
Something as simple as setting the table before guests arrive can take a great deal of stress away. Trying to set the table with a house full of guests and the kids running around can be overwhelming. And with a million other things to do, I’m sure this is last on your agenda. Setting the table early gives more time to prepare your delicious holiday dinner!

Play holiday music
An easy way to spread some holiday cheer is simply by playing some holiday music at your party. Make sure you don’t have it too loud that your guests can’t hear each other, but having it play in the background of conversation really sets the holiday mood. Create a playlist of all your favorites and let it play during your event!

Find easy recipes

The most stressful part of cooking a holiday dinner is timing everything perfectly. Finding recipes that don’t require too much preparation and baking time will give some time to relax and enjoy your holiday. Simplifying your menu doesn’t mean your meal will be any less delicious. You will still have mouthwatering food to serve your family.

Have a holiday themed drink
The holidays are a time for celebration and treating yourself, so why not do that with the perfect holiday cocktail. Here at Breezin’, our personal favorite is the cranberry mimosa. It is a tasty treat all of your adult guests will enjoy sipping on before, during, and after your meal! Of course, this recipe can be altered to be a kid-friendly treat, just replace the champagne with sprite! Here’s a link to our favorite recipe!

Set up a cocoa bar
Setting up a cocoa bar is an inexpensive, crafty way to add that holiday touch your event may be needing. This delicious and kid-friendly option will help your guests get in the holiday spirit! You can go the extra mile and add marshmallows, peppermint sticks, sprinkles, whipped cream, and so much more! This is something you can set up before guests arrive and will be quite the treat!

Set up some games
Setting up some simple games is easy and so much fun! This is a great chance for your family to let loose and share some laughs. It’s an opportunity for everybody to bond and enjoy each other’s company. We’ve linked the instructions below to a personal favorite, the oven mitt present game. With this game, you and your family are sure to create some entertaining memories.

Breezin’ Entertainment & Productions Joins Community Food Pantry to Give Back this Thanksgiving Holiday 2019

TAMPA, Fla., November 20, 2019 – Despite the cold temperatures on Saturday, November 16, 2019, Breezin’ Entertainment teamed up with The Community Food Pantry to put on their third consecutive Turkey Drive which provides frozen turkeys and sides for families in need around Thanksgiving.

Out of the total 500 turkeys donated, Breezin’ Entertainment and The Krewe of the Knights of Sant’ Yago contributed 250 turkeys this year, over 100 more than in 2018. Over 500 families attended The Community Food Pantry’s Turkey Drive to collect frozen turkeys and bags filled with Thanksgiving essentials such as sides, plates, napkins, tablecloths, and supportive notes.

Approximately 95 volunteers attended the Turkey Drive to help package food, direct traffic, and load food into cars. Through all of their hard work, the Turkey Drive ran smoothly and efficiently leaving all families who attended extremely gracious.

The Community Food Pantry started the Turkey Drive event to give back to the community during the Thanksgiving holiday. Many members of the Tampa Bay community are unable to celebrate Thanksgiving with the traditional turkey dinner due to financial instability. By providing families in the North Tampa and Carrollwood Area with Thanksgiving essentials, The Community Food Pantry is able to help all families celebrate Thanksgiving, no matter their financial situation.

“On behalf of the Breezin’ team, we want to thank everybody that was kind enough to donate to our Turkey Drive, especially The Krewe of the Knights of Sant’ Yago, who contributed 100 turkeys. We are humbled, we are grateful, there are over 500 families out here today and our support with the help of The Krewe of the Knights of Sant’ Yago was 250 turkeys and 10 volunteers this morning!” said Cindy Dervech, the founder of Breezin’ Entertainment and Productions.

The Breezin’ staff was delighted to participate in an event that benefitted the members of their community. It is important for everyone to feel supported and cared for during the holiday season. By providing those in need with the opportunity to have a turkey dinner with their family and friends during Thanksgiving, it is an easy way to show the members of the community they are cared for. Breezin’ Entertainment wishes everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving as well as a joyful holiday season.

2019 Turkey Drive (Feat. Community Food Pantry)

With Thanksgiving around the corner, most Americans are probably thinking about their favorite Thanksgiving dish. Many people view Thanksgiving as a time for friends and family to get together and spend time around a giant table of food. Unfortunately, some families do not have the financial means to provide a whole turkey dinner for their family. Everyone deserves to have a big turkey dinner no matter what their financial situation may be, so this year The Community Food Pantry and Breezin’ Entertainment and Productions stepped in to help.

On Saturday, November 16th, Breezin’ Entertainment and Productions teamed up with Community Food Pantry for their third consecutive year to host the Turkey Drive. The Turkey Drive provides families in the North Tampa and Carrollwood communities with Thanksgiving necessities to put together their very own meal. Each family is provided a turkey along with a grocery bag that is filled with sides, plates, napkins, tablecloths, and supportive notes. This year Breezin’ and Community Food Pantry reached their goal of 500 turkeys donated and families served, totaling over 200 more than the previous year.

Cars were seen lining up around the corner past where the eye could see. As each car rolled up to the Turkey Drive, they were greeted by the smiling faces of 95 volunteers who eagerly loaded turkeys into each car despite the cold weather. This year, Breezin’ welcomed 10 of their very own volunteers to the drive and donated 250 turkeys with the help of The Krewe of the Knights of Sant’ Yago, more than double the previous year. 

The Community Food Pantry began in 2008 as a small closet of food located in a church. By 2018, they expanded were serving 43,000 people within the Tampa Bay community, of which over a third were children and 15% were seniors. Not only does the Community Food Pantry provide food to families in need, but they also offer blood pressure screenings and information on social services that may be useful. As the Community Food Pantry continues to grow, they anticipate feeding over 50,000 people for the year of 2019. 

Thanksgiving is not only a holiday of great food, but also a day to give thanks for what life has provided for us and to give back to the community. The Community Food Pantry has been working hard for 11 years to provide families with food and resources they need no matter their race, religion, financial situation, or overall perceived need. Breezin’ was honored to team up with the Community Food Pantry this past Saturday to help all families of Tampa Bay enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.
