BARE STUDIO | @bare_studio_

Today, I’d like to feature a Paramedical Tattoo Shop that focuses on inkless techniques to camouflage scars and stretch marks. What is the inkiness technique?

“This Procedure is a more natural treatment that improves the texture, depth, and color contrast of both fresh and old stretch marks, helping them blend in more with the surrounding skin. “

This technique does not necessarily make stretch marks and scars go away but helps make stretch marks less noticeable. Nothing will completely get rid of stretch marks. But I’ve seen them do some serious work with night and day ink!

Their services include Scar Camouflage, Stretch Mark Treatment, and Cryroskin. We all know having noticeable stretch marks and scars can be a confidence killer, and what I love about their work is how they can make a difference in one’s life and restore the confidence of others one ink session at a time.

GEMSTONE OF THE MONTH |

Only two months of the year are assigned three birthstones: December and June. The three birthstones of June are Pearl, Alexandrite, and Moonstone. But why does June have three birthstones? The main reason why some months have multiple birthstones is that various ancient stones have become too rare, so it is less likely for them to be available on the market and to satisfy consumer needs. Some attribute this to June's zodiac sign, Gemini, also known as 'The Twins.' But that doesn't explain why there are three birthstones. At best, it's a flimsy theory. Whatever the true origins of the triple birthstones are, it doesn't change that you have some lovely stones to choose from if you were born in June.

Knowing that your birth month represents three unique and beautiful gemstones is exciting, right?

Pearl: "Stone of Sincerity"
Alexandrite: "Emerald by Day, Ruby by Night"
Moonstone: “Magic of Moonbeam”

As May is coming to an end, AAPI Heritage Month is also coming to an end…To finish the month, we’d like to introduce a Vietnamese-American Creative Director and talented stylist, @julietvo!

I’m super grateful for the support and friendship. She’s styled some of the hottest and rising stars, such as Mark Tuan to Emma Roberts and Esty.

Malala Fund | @malalafund

Growing up in America, we are fortunate that we have rights to our freedom, opportunities to pursue our passions, access to education, etc. We sometimes forget that there’s a whole other world outside that does not have the same opportunities. Education is not accessible to all females due to many reasons. Malala Fund was created to help solve this problem. It was founded by @malala and Ziauddin Yousafzai and co-founded by @shiza , @ourplace , in 2013. Malala Fund invests in education advocates and activists who challenge the policies and practices that prevent girls from going to school in their communities.

Where it all began….

“During the time, the New York Times began documenting the story of 11-year-old Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai and her father, Ziauddin. Malala secretly blogged for the BBC, providing an inside look at what it was like for a young girl to live under the Taliban rule, while her father publicly advocated for girls’ education.

Shiza organized a girls’ summer camp in Islamabad for Malala and nearly 30 girls. The camp’s mission was to empower Pakistani girls as activists and entrepreneurs—Shiza was particularly passionate about teaching girls to develop their own ventures. Then in 2012, after Malala endured a horrific attack and was shot in the face by a member of the Taliban, Shiza used her outrage as fuel to make an even greater impact. She managed media inquiries from around the world and worked side by side with Malala to raise awareness for her powerful story. “ - My Founder’s Story.

One of the first contributors was Angeline Jolie! Over the years, Malala Fund has improved the lives of many girls in developing countries. From building schools, providing mentorship programs, providing school supplies, etc. They even teamed up with Apple to fund expansion to India and Latin America and provide technology, curriculum assistance, and policy research to educate more than 100,000 girls.

A mother's love is a blessing that no one can explain. We
are inspired every day by the strong women who raised us
and paved the way for who we are today. So, no matter
what kind of mother you are, we know that the world would
not be the same without moms.

Gemstone of the Month | Diamonds

It's a new month which means a new birthstone! The birthstone of April is Diamonds. They form through extreme temperature and pressure processes under harsh environments; this naturally formed stone is considered the strongest and unbreakable gem! Despite its complex transformation, the outcome shines gorgeously. Its beauty is mesmerized by many as it is one of the most valuable and sought-after gemstones.

Diamonds symbolize strength, but it is also often associated with faithfulness, love, and purity. As a result, you can find diamonds commonly used in engagement and wedding rings!

The first diamond engagement ring was created in 1477, and Archduke Maximillian of Austria proposed to Mary Burgundy. This exchange started a tradition that spread throughout elite societies. However, engagement rings did not become popular among the general public until the mid-1900s.

"De Beers, a British-owned diamond company, launched a new advertising campaign in 1947. This campaign, which featured the slogan "A diamond is forever," contributed to the rise in the popularity of diamond engagement rings. Within three years of the campaign's launch, diamond engagement ring sales had climbed by 50% and continued to rise exponentially. In 1939, diamonds only utilized around 10% of engagement rings, but today the number is closed to 90%, according to the American Gem Society. " - IO Collective Blog.

Because of their high demand, unbeatable radiant beauty, and sustainable qualities, Diamonds make a Great investment. To learn more about Diamonds, check out our blog!

Aquamarine | Gemstone of the Month

Known as the birthstone of March, Aquamarine is a stunning gemstone that has a striking sea-like color of the stone that catches much attention. The tone of Aquamarine can vary drastically from stone to stone, moving from the deepest teals to the palest crystal blues, and it can be heat treated to intensify the color. The darker hues and more green-toned blue stones are the most valuable!

Back in the day, Aquamarine was thought to have some healing and protective properties. Sailors often wore the gemstone as it was believed that it would help to bring them safely home. This beautiful sea-like stone embodies youthful vitality, purity, hope, tranquility, serenity, clarity, and harmony. As the first spring birthstones, the sea blue crystal represents transformation and rebirth. Wearing this gemstone was thought to bring the wearer many good fortunes. However, the ancient Romans took a slightly different approach. The stone was used to treat ailments. It was thought that Aquamarine could cure liver, stomach, and throat issues.

Today, you can find that Aquamarines are mined worldwide, such as Brazil, Zambia, Nigeria, Madagascar, Pakistan, Mozambique, and the USA. Colorado produces some of the finest specimens of Aquamarine! You will find some of my beloved Aquamarine collections on sale on my site! See link in bio.
