Keepin’ it Real – An Event for Tweens!
August 30, 2012Posted by on
With the upcoming launch of Peekaboo Beans’ newest collection for tweens – CiCi Bean - I wanted to do something to celebrate this new line while being true to its essence.
About CiCi Bean: “Today’s society puts and extreme amount of pressure on young people to look and act a certain way. CiCi Bean believes that beauty comes from the heart and we are all unique, special and beautiful. CiCi Bean has designed a clothing brand specifically for Tween girls with developing bodies and personalities. CiCi Bean aims to empower girls to accept themselves as the awesome individuals they are, while loving their beauty both on the inside and out.”
What better way to celebrate this new collection than with an event just for tween girls and their moms, all about real beauty!
Saturday September 15th 1:00pm- 4:00pm
Smart Spaces Organizing, 5450 Canotek Road Unit 68
Presented by Vicky Bisson, Peekaboo Beans Play Stylist and Heather Burke, Smart Spaces Organizing
Event free of charge
‘Keepin it Real’ day is about self-acceptance and celebrating real beauty from the inside out. Acceptance of one’s self is the first step to real beauty. We all know how important it is to love and accept ourselves unconditionally, but this is a hard thing to do, especially when we are continually bombarded with images of what we should look like, act like and be like. So it’s up to us to step away from those images and ideals and stand up for ourselves and our tweens!
Tween girls (ages 8-14) and their moms are invited to get together on September 15th and have a conversation about real beauty! What’s the catch? No makeup allowed! We want everyone participating to celebrate themselves in their truest, most natural state of beauty!
Tweens will have the opportunity to view (and try on!) the new CiCi Bean Tween collection from Peekaboo Beans. Tweens and moms can have their photo taken together, in their most natural, beautiful states, by Julie of Inspired Photography. They will have the opportunity to participate in a shared open and honest conversation about self-acceptance and real beauty. For example, ask yourself and ask your tween: “how do you feel when you look in the mirror with no make-up on? What do you LOVE about yourself? What makes YOU awesome?”
Heather from Smart Space Organizing will present and facilitate a discussion on “Your Room, Your Way: talking about what matters to you in your space to both mother and daughter.”
Light refreshments will be served. Fabulous swag bags for the first 25 tweens!
