February Greetings!

Join us March 11th at Bonefish Grill for the WBOM Membership Luncheon

On March 11th our luncheon will be all about networking, as we attempt to obtain new members as well as retain our current ones. At each table there will be a host who will guide us through questions that are guaranteed to spark up valuable information about one another. Any member that brings a guest will be eligible for a drawing for a seat at the the WBOM table for Fashioning Our Lives (November 7 at 11:30 AM). Any guest/non-member attending will be eligible for a voucher for a free WBOM luncheon of their choice.

[Regular Menu] Bang-Bang Shrimp
[Vegetarian Option] TBD
All meals include a drink, bread, and dessert.

To attend, you must RSVP and pay in advance using PayPal by Thursday, March 6, 2014.  Click HERE to RSVP.  Members – you must log in to get the member pricing for the luncheon!!!! 

Because we are required to give a count to Bonefish the Friday before our lunch meeting, we are unable to accommodate walk-ins and late RSVPs. Because we pay for every meal ordered, we are unable to provide refunds, or carry forward your meal reservation if you are absent.

Make your reservations on the WBOM Website by March 6, 2014!  Click HERE to RSVP. Also there will no longer be checks accepted at the door. Payment is accepted through PayPal only.

Spotlight Member: Kathy Wise

Kathy Wise is a Board Certified Permanent Cosmetic Makeup Technician and Owner of A You'Nique Image Salon.

Kathy Wise has received extensive permanent cosmetic training nationwide from some of the most respected professionals in the industry. Her training includes advanced courses in skin repigmentation, color correction, areola pigmentation and other medical procedures.

She is Board Certified with The American Academy of Micropigmentation. She is also a member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals and Practitioners of Permanent Cosmetic Association, International.

"I’ve been in the beauty business for 32 years," she says. "I’ve been doing permanent makeup for 14 years. Permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing. It’s wonderful for people who have health problems. Maybe they don’t have eyebrows or they can’t see to do their makeup."

"Some of my people have been declared legally blind. They get up and there it is. It always looks the same. They don’t have to worry about applying makeup. Some people do it for beauty. Some people do it for health reasons. They like the look. They feel good about it. It makes them feel good when they look in that mirror."
