Petaluma’s Covergirl Shelina Moreda Is What She Makes Up

Today, COVERGIRL announces the biggest reinvention in their 60-year history, redefining the brand with new a slogan, “I Am What I Make Up.” The powerful new expression aims to inspire people to embrace their unique identities and unapologetically create any version of themselves through makeup.

COVERGIRL kicks off their brand relaunch today, with a long-form film titled, “Made in the Mirror,” that features six COVERGIRLs, most of whom were launched throughout the past month. These include, actress Issa Rae, TV personality Ayesha Curry, singer/songwriter Katy Perry, model Maye Musk, fitness trainer Massy Arias and professional motorcycle racer Shelina Moreda. All of these women have combined their professions with their love for makeup, while empowering and encouraging others to do the same.

Ukonwa Ojo, SVP COVERGIRL, Coty, said, “In leading the relaunch, we started with the insight that people no longer strive for a singular standard of beauty, but use makeup as a tool for self-expression and personal transformation.. COVERGIRL has always been inclusive and is known for pushing the boundaries of what it means to be beautiful, which means we have a responsibility to elevate how we connect and communicate with people. This is bigger than a new campaign or a tagline. We hope to spark a provocative dialogue that shifts cultural assumptions about when, where, how and why people wear makeup.”

COVERGIRL’s multifaceted transformation will touch all areas of the brand, including packaging and product design; in-store experience; a new logo and tag line; and look, tone and feel across all communications, starting with “Made in the Mirror” and continuing to roll-out through the remainder of 2017 and into 2018.

Two Petaluma Mom’s Combine Efforts To End Deadly “Toxic Cocktail”

Kathleen and HeatherKathleen Stafford, mom of 3 teenage boys, businesswoman and Heather Elliott-Hudson, mom of 2 teenage boys and a 7 year old daughter, businesswoman both came together because of a very scary drug incident that happened and because of the incident prevalent drug use at our school was uncovered. Xanax being the current drug of choice, and mixing that with hard alcohol causes a “Toxic Cocktail” and is deadly.

Vowing that we can’t sit on this knowledge we have to get the word out. We then started PPAD who’s mission is to partner with parents, schools, and law enforcement to establish much needed drug education in our schools. 6th graders have the D.A.R.E program and high school freshman can elect to take Human Interaction which teaches lots of important information including drug education. Other than those 2 opportunities there is nothing that is taught on an on-going basis. Leaving our kids at a huge disadvantage when trying to maneuver through the very serious drugs that are widely available to them.

Triple Crème Brie with Truffles Wins Best of Class at World Championship Cheese Contest

Congrats to Marin French Cheese & Sister Company Laura Chenel’s Earn Many Awards

World Cheese ContestMarin French Cheese’s Triple Crème Brie with Black Truffles took the coveted Best of Class Award for flavored soft-ripened cheese at the World Championship Cheese Contest in Madison, Wisconsin, March 7-9, 2016. The World Championship Cheese Contest, established in 1957, is organized by the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association. This year, the organization saw a record 2,955 entries from 23 countries and 31 states.

Made with fresh cow’s milk and cream from neighboring Marin County dairies, Triple Crème Brie specked with Black Truffles lends itself to an irresistibly earthy aroma of mushrooms balanced with sweet cream, each year earning high distinctions in regional, national and international contests alike.

Other honors conferred to the Marin French team of dedicated cheesemakers during this recent competition include third place in the soft-ripened category for Petite Supreme, a high butterfat, extra-crème cheese with an aroma of sweet milk, and fourth place for Traditional Brie in the brie category.

Equally impressive, Sonoma-based sister company, Laura Chenel’s, received accolades once again this year for its creamy, fluffy-textured Original Chabis fresh goat cheese, garnering third place in the Soft Goat Milk Cheese category. The Orange Blossom Honey Log won its first award at the event, placing third in the Flavored Soft Goat Milk Cheese with Sweet Condiments category, while the Chabis Garlic took a fourth place prize in Soft Goat Milk Cheese category. Laura Chenel’s Original Buchette was recognized with a fifth place award.

Here is a short video from deli market news on the new Laura Chenel products:

“Each year we are impressed by the increasing level of competition at this highly regarded competition,” says General Manager Philippe Chevrollier. “We are very proud of our cheesemaking teams at both Marin French and Laura Chenel’s for being such strong contenders where ingenuity, skill and know-how are key,” he adds.
