Dear Friends, Change, sometimes dreaded, but bound to happen. In my experience change has always been positive even if it seemed uncomfortable at the time. This year I believe that change will be something everyone will be experiencing first hand including eleMENts by Beaute’. We hope the changes that will be adopted in the eleMENts culture will make your experience more enriching and help in comforting you during some of your life changes. Here are some new changes that are now available to you: - A larger and more informative magazine. - Online shopping. - Interactive virtual forums. - Weekly Newsletters. - First hand education regarding ilike Organic Skincare Products. - Why Pay More Wednesdays?™ - Spalabrations!™

Lorianne Riley’s makeup artistry can be seen throughout California—on the

runway, in photos, and on the faces of the stars of Chico’s Wake Up! news show. Additionally—as an educator for Mirabella, California Skincare Supply, Szep Elet, and SkinCare Fundamentals—Riley has trained countless beauty professionals. When she isn’t working as a freelance makeup artist on photo shoots and runway shows, the licensed cosmetologist and certified massage therapist is bestowing the benefits of her experience on clients at eleMENts by Beaute. Trained in LED, ultrasonic, and microcurrent therapies, she draws out skin impurities, enhances facial features, and removes chronic pain and tension. Riley provides massage work, body treatments, and nail care. During men’s and women’s treatments, she uses organic products that are never tested on animals or Barbie dolls. Guests can sip on green teas, organic coffee, or fruit-infused water while lounging on Asian- and French-baroque-inspired furniture and humming along to jazz, world beat, and Euro music.

Interview With Marc Andrew Fitzgerald of Able Abe Clothing By Lorianne S. Riley


What came first the Characters or designing

and reconstructing clothing?


I always drew characters, always, but the clothing came as another outlet for my creativity and as part of the fashion in the 90’s, you remember all the kids wearing jeans with drawings on their jeans and t shirts, I was doing that too.


How did you come up with wanting to reconstruct clothing?


Not that long ago I had the pleasure

to interview Marc Andrew Fitzgerald Johnson a Chico local who is the Creator and Owner of Able Abe Clothing. Marc is a talented young Entrepreneur, Photographer, Designer and Artist in his 30’s. He creates fun colorful urban designs and artwork. His creations can be seen in local fashion shows, online and in various boutiques.


How did you come up with the name Able Abe?


When I was a kid in church one day I was looking at a penny with Abe Lincoln’s likeness on it. I kept thinking Honest Abe, Honest Abe, Honest Abe and some how it turned into Able Abe. The name stuck. As far as the initial logo goes when I was little living in Sacramento and before we moved to Orland for a work opportunity my mother took. I felt out of place in Orland, there weren’t many kids that looked like me or had much in common with me, unlike Sacramento. The little kid with the Afro was kind of like my alter ego and got me through.

I loved watching “The Cut” and “Project Ru way.” I thought to myself, “I can do that!” My first project was an Atlanta Braves ball cap that I reconstructed into a visor. It looked pretty cool. I wish I still had it.


Do you do your own screen-printing?


Most of the time. If the project is a large or an extremely intricate detailed project I send it out, but if it is a smaller limited edition project I want to do the screen-printing myself, which makes it more personal and intimate being it is hand crafted.


What would be the ultimate project for you to do as a professional designer?


Long term goal, I would love to run a production agency, which would encompass all my talents and passions from art, design, photography and film making, but short term, or in the next 4 months of 2010 most importantly, is to continue building the Able Abe brand with smaller more managble projects and really push the limits of my creativity and abilities as a visionary through great limited edition projects and collaborations.

What Are Chico State Students Saying About Finding a New Dayspa? Moving to a new area is always stressful; you’re stuck organizing the new home, reactivating the cable, meeting neighbors, and of course, finding a quality spa to satisfy your beauty needs. Suddenly you have flashbacks of that bad haircut in middle school and how long it took to grow it out. Even just simply switching hairstylists can trigger these trust issues inherent to a situation involving a stranger with scissors and bleach. Walking into a spa, no reservations should exist about what you will look like walking out the door. You should be excited for the tranquil surroundings, soothing music, and talented staff keeping you on the edge of new trends. Whether you’re getting an eyebrow wax, facial, or makeup for a special event, only settle for the best. Remember: life is too short to spend hiding behind a bad haircut. We were all assured as children growing up that looks don’t matter. Looks won’t get you a job, get you a promotion, or even promise a fairy-tale ending. I have never disagree more. Getting a great hair cut, walking away from a facial with rejuvenated skin, or showing off a polished manicure, will make you feel like a million bucks. Just finding that time from your busy schedule to go to a spa, relax, and receive superior service can dramatically improve many aspects of life. That boost of confidence will automatically transfer into your daily life, exuding positive vibes which will instantly be attracted back to you. This can improve job performance, relationships, increase your energy level, and open new opportunities for success. Routinely reserving time for yourself is not only a necessity for feeling great physically, but mentally as well. Looks alone won’t get you a job, but feeling comfortable in your own skin and confident in your appearance, inside and out, can do just that. By Sandra Eastus

Being a female, I have specific standards when choosing where to go to get a facial; Being a college student, I have different, but still specific standards when choosing where to go to have my skin cared for. As you may imagine, these standards are often conflicting, but can be managed. The biggest differences in these two sets of standards are the price ranges. When I was living at home, working full time with no bills to worry about, I could spend about $100 or more on a facial. Now that I am living on my own, worrying about so many different bills (rent, tuition, books, electricity, cable, internet, etc.), I have a very limited income to spend on the necessary extras. In my four years in college, I have gone through some good skin times and some bad; what I’ve learned is the most important way to choose a place in the right price range is to hear from someone with the same range who loves the place where they go and have rave reviews. Relying on a dayspa with the right price and location is not the way to go, and neither is listening to a friend who has an unlimited price range. Since I’ve learned a few lessons and gotten a couple bad facials, I still do a little research after I hear a great referral. It’s always very helpful and relieving when there are good reviews posted online, which could only mean that someone else loved it so much that they wanted to share their opinions. By Lindsey Jester
