  • ByuTi new salon opening in Brentwood by Jordan Landes-Brenman

                                          My ByuTi Brentwood hair journal

    My byu-ti hairstylist Stacy Ellis gave me a  initial consultation. She gave my waist length hair some long layers, and then used a hair dryer and roundbrush to blow out my naturally wavy hair. Stacy then used a Hot Tools curling iron to create curls, which she then brushed out into soft waves. I loved the results! All products are by Redken and Pureology.

    It is a gorgeous salon and the staff was very helpful and knowledgable. I met with the owner Natasha and we talked about the great promo where anytime a guest comes and gets a service they get something in the mail within days after their appointment which includes 3 items: 20% off their next appointment, 20% off any product, and a gift certificate for a complimentary service for a friend to use to get a service at their salon. Byu-Ti is very into giving back to their customers, their community and really places a high value on customer service.

    ByuTi’s new salon opening in Brentwood is located at 11740 San Vicente Boulevard, floor 2, Los Angeles California

  • Bortolomiol Prosecco Announces Launch of “Giuliano Bortolomiol: Dreaming of Prosecco,” A Biography Honoring Company’s Iconoclastic Founder

    NEW YORK, June 29, 2011--Bortolomiol Valdobbiadene, a family-owned boutique winery, today
    announced the launch of “Giuliano Bortolomiol: Dreaming of Prosecco,” a newly published
    biography of the company’s iconoclastic founder.  The book, written by acclaimed journalist Ettore
    Gobbato and published by Veronelli Editore, will be available in the U.S. in the fall.  The book,
    translated into English, debuted at a special event at the Setai Fifth Avenue Hotel in New York City.  
    Featuring a Prosecco tasting by Elvira Bortolomiol, a Prosecco expert who is continuing Giuliano’s 
    Prosecco-making legacy, together with her mother and three sisters.

    The book, which is the first to honor a Prosecco maker, chronicles the life and accomplishments of
    Giuliano Bortolomiol, who transformed what was once a simple local wine into an internationally
    acclaimed sparkler.  Giuliano was the first to use the Charmat method to create Proseccos in a brut
    style.  This was controversial at the time, but was later widely adopted.  He also spearheaded the 
    region’s efforts to attain the DOCG designation.  It is part of the “Bold Series” by Veronelli Editore
    that spotlights men and women who valued the lands in which they lived and worked, were able to
    influence people’s behavior and, through their work, changed the status quo.

    “We are honored to have my father’s life documented and celebrated,” said Ms. Bortolomiol.  “He
    was a man of action who was passionate about making Prosecco a true star.  He was also very
    modest and personally shunned the spotlight.  I think he would be very proud of this sensitive and
    insightful depiction.”

    Ms. Bortolomiol showcased and poured three different Proseccos, Brut, Banda Rossa Extra Dry and
    Superiore di Cartizze Dry, which are renowned for their finesse, complexity and distinctiveness. 
    While Americans have in recent years come to appreciate Prosecco as a fun and lively aperitivo,
    these Bortolomiol Proseccos, with their DOCG designation, will introduce them to the highest level 
    of quality.  Classic Italian dishes, prepared by the chef of the Setai Fifth Avenue Hotel, will
    accompany these exceptional Proseccos.  Ms. Bortolomiol discussed the scenic Valdobbiadene
    region as one of Italy’s increasingly popular travel destinations and signed copies of the book, which
    was given to all attendees.

    About Bortolomiol Valdobbiadene
    Bortolomiol Valdobbiadene is a family-owned, boutique winery with the winemaking roots that date
    back to 1760, when Bartolomeo Bortolomiol began cultivating vines on the hillsides of 
    Valdobbiadene.  The company itself was founded in 1949 by Giuliano Bortolomiol, who 
    revolutionized how Prosecco was made and elevated it to a worldclass bubbly.  A master of the 
    Charmat method, he created the first Prosecco in the brut style in 1960.  Today Giuliano’s
    daughters--Maria Elena, Elvira, Luisa and Giuliana--together with their mother, Ottavia, carry on
    Giuliano’s legacy by producing award-winning Proseccos.  For more information, please visit

  • Project Runway’ Star Debuts Fall Collection in Coveted 9 PM Opening Night Slot

    EDGE Magazine Celebrates Start of Third Year by
    Sponsoring Designer Irina Shabayeva at Lincoln Center Event

    ‘Project Runway’ Star Debuts Fall Collection in Coveted 9 PM Opening Night Slot

    (New York, NY — February 22, 2011)   Who said the magazine business is dying? Among a handful of thriving regional publications is New Jersey-based EDGE Magazine, which started turning heads when it burst onto the scene in 2009—and made a major statement in the fashion world as the presenting sponsor of Irina Shabayeva’s Fall Collection at Lincoln Center in New York.

    EDGE secured the key 9:00 pm slot on Opening Night of Fashion Week presented by Mercedes-Benz for Shabayeva, whose work first won acclaim on Project Runway a year and a half ago. The celebration moved downtown to the James Hotel, where the 29-year-old designer was feted at an after-party held at celebrity chef David Burke’s rooftop nightclub, Jimmy’s.

    “What EDGE magazine has accomplished in two years is frankly astonishing,” says Shabayeva. “It’s an honor to be associated with a publication that connects with its readers the way EDGE does—and which brings fashion to their doorstep.”

    The relationship between magazine and designer began in the summer of 2010. HBO True Blood star Rutina Wesley offered to model fashion for EDGE and fell in love with one of Shabayeva’s dresses. The stunning shot made the cover of EDGE and triggered a surge of interest in the magazine—in New Jersey and online, where the EDGE web site (edgemagonline.com) quadrupled its hits overnight.

    EDGE is a smart, sexy suburban lifestyle magazine with a circulation of 80,000, primarily in Central New Jersey. The glossy oversized publication hits newsstands six times a year and features an eclectic mix of feature editorial, arts, food, travel, health & wellness stories and celebrity interviews (ranging from NBC’s Brian Williams to soul diva Gloria Gaynor to fashion icon Norma Kamali). In two years its page count has doubled, to 100.

    EDGE distinguished itself in a challenging marketplace by shooting its own fashion each issue. According to managing editor Mark Stewart, it’s a gamble that has obviously paid off.

    “Our investment in fashion has made people take a serious look at everything we do,” he explains. “What they find is consistently surprising and challenging ideas, sometimes with a raised eyebrow, sometimes with a knowing wink, but always with an EDGE
