Artist Series with Guest Author Beatriz Williams
Wine & Cheese Chat | Summer Wives (just released)

“Williams transports readers to a time and place replete with glamour, drama and secrets. Delving into the inner sanctum of wealthy families to expose the dark sides of their lives is something Williams excels at. Readers are swept away into the opulent three dimensional world where they see and feel along with her believable, engaging characters. As always the backdrop is well drawn and the plot compelling, making this a hard-to-put-down read and one you’ll want to savor.” (RT Book Reviews)

Ornamental Things Jewelry Pop Up Shop

“I design jewelry for heroines and daydreamers.  I strive to create timeless pieces that have an authentic feel. I am inspired by bohemian ideas, bold women and living in the moment.  My jewelry will see a girl through her best adventures. I’m on a jewelry journey, exploring themes and process.  My methods include collecting, casting, polishing, riveting, rethinking and reworking objects into a collection of jewelry that is pretty, inspired and wearable.

I grew up in a small Texas town shopping garage sales, sewing my own clothes and daydreaming my way through school. I studied Art History at the University of Texas. I made jewelry as a hobby for twelve years before starting Ornamental Things in 2004.”

Mimosas & Make Up with Susan Posnick at Aster Cafe
Complimentary Consultations with Susan in Spa boutique

“My Vision for Susan Posnick Cosmetics is to provide women with their #BeautyEssentials- bringing real life beauty and sun protection together. My products are designed to simplify a woman’s beauty routine, with healthy, multi-purpose products. Compact for travel, they are the products that go with you around the corner and around the world.”

During her fulfilling and distinguished career as a professional makeup artist working with models and Hollywood’s A- list, Susan was diagnosed with skin cancer.  Realizing that the need for a healthy sunscreen rather than a chemical one went far beyond her, Susan set aside the majority of her makeup work in the film and fashion industry and shifted her focus to developing her first innovative product, COLORFLO. This product- the core of the line, provides brush on, self-dispensing, on-the-go natural sun protection and healthy foundation coverage. The same passion, dedication, and time that went into the development of COLORFLO continues in her attention to detail and quality with each of the products in the Susan Posnick line, products that are as beautiful as they are healthy.

Susan and her products have been featured in numerous publications and websites such as INSTYLE, Marie Claire, VOGUE, Allure, Real Simple, Lucky, and Town and Country.
