As the saying goes inner beauty is great, but a little makeup can’t hurt. Join orja as she shares makeup tricks and tips. We will be talking about the best tools to use, which tools to use, high-end brands and drug store brands. We’ll cover eyebrows, eyeliners, primers, foundations, eye shadows and much more. You can go full on glam or just keep it simple. You can spend a lot on makeup or you can spend a little. Whatever you do, look great doing it.

You know in your heart you are meant to serve, to kneel, and to surrender.  The feelings are deep and perhaps you cannot even grasp or define them, however you know they are there.  You wonder though, what is the next step?  How do I do this?  What do I need to know?  You have feelings of wanting to do the right thing, and you don't want to make a mistake, but don't know what that right thing is.  Come learn the basics of service, surrender, giving of one's power.  tomo will provide an outlined path to help you define for yourself what the right thing is for you and for the person you serve.  We will discuss the basic skills that every bottom should have, along with practical applications.

Benjamin Franklin said, “For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.” It’s a rare person among us who doesn’t feel the need to get more organized. Some people call slave sheri JOTs, which is a nickname her Master gave her because she has what he called “Johnny On the Spot syndrome”. She is a self-proclaimed Excel spreadsheet whore and loves lists and organizational plans and everything that comes with them. It can seem overwhelming to start a system to organize your life, but it doesn’t have to be. Join her while she shows you the systems she uses to stay on track with her busy schedules from work, home, travel, and family. We will look at small things you can do to start channeling the chaos into hours earned.

Etiquette is something that is taught by our parents, teachers, preachers, and others that have influence over us as we grow up. Sadly, it seems that with each generation, these manners are not being taught to their fullest extent and have been outright ignored by prior generations as we have slipped into the age of instant gratification. Add in all the changes with technology and the M/s life, it can be confusing to know what to do and what not to do (or say!).

Come learn all about English style tea service with slave feyrie. This class is designed to be fun and hands-on!  We will explore: how to choose teas, history of tea, how it is made, processed and stored. How to setup and present a traditional afternoon tea. How to give and receive tea service. The class includes samples of many different teas and gives hands on practice brewing, pouring, serving and receiving tea.

What is the difference between sitting for a bootblack and a shoe shine?  How do you care for your own leather (boots, garments, toys)?  Is this class the beginning of a slippery slope into the sexy world of being a bootblack?
