  • 2014: What An Epic Year

    December 30, 2014No comments yet

    You know that scene from Finding Nemo where the turtle is all like “Whoaaaaa!” and then is all like “Whoooooooa”? That’s totally been our year here at Amelia C & Co. There were some totally righteous WHOA’s and a very tearful whoa… So here we go. (I’m not entirely sure, but I think I just made a haiku…) I get all kinds of worked up at the start of the year, there’s so many possibilities and so much to look forward…

    It’s BACK!!! Patriotic Pinups 2014 is happening November 1&2nd, just in time to be a special gift for the holidays! If you’re new to this event, allow me to give you the sassy low down. PPLV is an annual fundraiser featuring Las Vegas pinup photography for two full days of kick-up-your-pumps lovely.

    Three cheers for Brittany! Our dazzling friend and model has won another title- Ms. Nevada United States 2014! Brittany has been a face for the ‘Co since before it was even an official, real-deal company. We met first at a clothing catalog shoot back in 2009, and have been buzzing and weaving and crossing paths ever since. She is one of my go-to, know it’s gonna look amazing models I call on when I’m working on a collaborative project. Even…


  • You Are What You Read- Beauty Books and Magazines

    April 2, 2013No comments yet

    I’m a known avid reader. My idea of a hot date night would probably involve Barnes and Noble. I get my hands on anything I can, except I’ve never been able to make it through an entire Forbes magazine. A couple years ago at an industry convention, I signed up for this 10 magazines a month deal for dirt cheap, something like 20 bucks a month. It had all the goodies in there… Vogue, Glamour, Allure, and more. Add in…


  • Love is Beautiful

    Oh the choices, the choices! The ring is on, the feverish calls and excited “Congratulations” are rolling in! That dreamy fantasy that was once reserved for your mother’s closet and vanity has now come alive with websites, stores, and bridal shows as you piece together the look of a lifetime. For some women, it’s all about the deep desire to be “The Bride,” the replica of the holiday-edition Barbie’s from childhood complete with dazzling jewelry and lush fabric. For other…

    If you’ve been hanging around us for any time at all, you know we are all for a good band-wagon ride. This year, we once again took the steering wheel (or reigns? do bandwagons have power steering?) with Altenburg Studio for our second-annual Patriotic Pin-Ups and we gotta say- we knocked our own socks off! The event kicked off at 9am on Saturday, June 30th. Our two day event is a once-a-year opportunity to channel your inner Betty Page and…


  • Pin-Ups for Patriots is BACK!!

    June 9, 2012No comments yet

        Last year, we raised $6,500 in TWO DAYS benefiting the homeless military veterans of Las Vegas! This substantial amount was enough to help get the new Radcliffe Building open, a temporary housing facility to get our vets off the streets and into stability. Be a pin-up and be a patriot, come join us for our annual fundraiser to say THANK YOU to the men and women who have served our country. ALL PROCEEDS BENEFIT NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION US VETS.

    There are quite literally millions of beauty products on the market today. We’ve got entire mega-stores devoted to making sure that you look your best, whatever society has determined what “best” means at that time. I’ve built an entire company on making women looking good, and I’m not the first and will certainly not be the last. However, no matter how big the store, how expensive the cream, how good the artist, there is not a single thing outside of you…


  • From 2010, with love…

    December 31, 2010No comments yet

    This year has been…incredible. On January 6th, I officially launched my independent Las Vegas hair and makeup business. On my own, nail biting and all.  As I sit here on the very last day, hours even, of 2010, I’m feeling somewhat sentimental as I realized all the amazing things that this past year has brought me. The fact that I was not the only one to wish 2009 good riddance actually made me feel better about the whole thing. At least I…
