Eyegasms Mineral Pigments: Loose Colored Powders

Mineral Pigments with flair! Do you love Bare Essentials loose powder mineral pigments? Wait until you see Eyegasms Colored Powders! Like the name implies, Eyegasms mineral pigments are an explosion of color and fun.

Eyegasms Mica Powders are created by local Orlando artist/belly dancer Susan (Bathsheba). Having sensitive skin and loving make-up lead Susan to find natural mineral pigments for herself, but she found the major sources for these (Bare Essentials and other such companies) did not have the bright fun colors she was looking for. Lucky for us, she decided to make her own!

Susan's Mineral Pigments are in fun colors like...
  • Gator Tail: A glittering dark green with a mysterious metallic look
  • Ruby Slippers: A gorgeous warm red with plenty of sparkle, of course!
  • Elvin Magick: Brilliant spring green that looks soooo cool on
  • Cabaret: Bright pink powder with a "shimmying" shimmer
  • ...and so many more
Each pot is only $9.95 and contains more than double the amount of powder than comparable brands! They can be used for eye shadows, of course, but they are the best powders I've ever seen for making gliding paste for henna tattoos.

Use Eyegasms colored mineral pigments for...
  • Eye Shadow
  • Gilding Paste for henna (especially wedding & bridal mehndi)
  • Stamp Art (embossing powder)
  • Coloring Candles and Soaps
  • Mix with acrylic to make paints for crafts
  • Painting Jewelry
  • and more!
We are proud to carry this exclusive line and support our local belly dancing artist and dear friend, Susan!

Visit our store in College Park Orlando, Beachcombers Bazaar, for a current selection of Eyegasms loose powder colors. We do not offer Eyegasms mineral pigments on our website at this time, but you can shop online directly with Susan at www.Eyegasms.net.

Eyegasms...Give yourself one!

Hand Knitted Karma Scarves for Gifts

These soft brightly colored scarves are the best gift ever (especially at only $25!). Each scarf is hand knitted by local Orlando FL artist, Celia of Lagniappe Designs.

Celia absolutely loves what she does and it shows. She only knits her Karma Scarves when she is feeling happy and positive. She thinks only uplifting positive thoughts while knitting each scarf, thus infusing these positive vibes and good karma into the very fabric of each and every scarf!

Every scarf is spilling over with style, color, and great vibes! The perfect gift for the person that has everything. Pair a Karma Scarf with matching glass bangles and bindi body stickers for unique gift sure to be talked about and showed off.

These are hand made so quantities are limited. Visit Beachcombers Bazaar in College Park, Orlando for Karma Scarves while available.

Holiday On the Drive Fun!

What a HUGE success! Holiday On the Drive was fantastic this year and I'd like to congratulate our Door Prize winners.

Congratulations, Jennifer (of College Park, Orlando) and Pamela (of Winter Park, Orlando)!

Jennifer and Pamela each won a Beachcombers Bazaar gift bag worth $50! Yeaaaaa!

Beachcombers Bazaar was proud to bring a variety of entertainment and activities to Holiday On the Drive 2008 including...

Tribal Dance Performances with Florida Tribal Dance
The stars of the evening were definitely the Florida Tribal Dancers. Both professional troupes (Blue Caravan and Black V) performed on the Beachcombers stage along with some of the advanced students of Florida Tribal Dance and the children's troupe. FTD director, Lacey Sanchez, dazzled us as always!

I cannot thank Lacey and all the beautiful dancers enough for the wonderful performances. I am delighted that we are able to work so closely with FTD and bring tribal dance to College Park as often as we can!

For those of you that caught either show, and are interested in learning tribal belly dance, the Florida Tribal Dance class schedule can be found here. Come as you are! Believe me, if I can do it, so can you!

Another special thanks to all the dancers for supporting us at Beachcombers Bazaar. I saw glass bangles, khussa shoes, and Beachcombers bindi body stickers everywhere!

You can see some videos of the performance here.

Henna Body Art with Mariko of Henna of Soul
A wonderful sweet henna artist that I send my thanks to! Mariko did a wonderful job and was packed during the entire event. Mariko always adds a positive sharing energy to any event and it was a delight to have her!

$1 a Minute Massage with Diane of the YOU Health Center
Diane has the fingers of a Goddess! Her massage table was occupied all night long with shoppers getting energized for the season.

Our neighbors joined the festivities with fun stuff too.

Forever Young Floral Design (the BEST in Orlando) had a large table full of holiday greenery including wreaths, swags, and more at bargain prices. I saw people leaving with boxes of greenery!

Blades Hair Salon had a wonderful food spread and some amazing carolers. Not to mention the folks at Blades are just fun to be around.

Discounted shopping, free performances, old friends, and new friends...what a night! A special thanks to Ena of The Henna Studio for stopping by to bring some mylar she found that is perfect for making henna cones!

Support local small business! Shop local this holiday season! Visit us for our glass bangles (only 9.99), khussa shoes, beaded flats, henna tattoo products, mehndi kits, bindi body stickers, and new items from local artists including Karma Scarves by Celia and Eyegasms Mineral Pigments by Susan.

Here's to a GREAT Holiday On the Drive in College Park, Orlando FL!

Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Her!

All the good stuff comes in the stockings, doesn't it? You can pack a ton of tantilizing fun stuff in a Christmas stocking, and I'm here to help you find some fun stuff for stockings this year!

Bindi Body Stickers
Ahhh... What a fantastic stocking stuffer, lightwieght, inexpensive, you can pack a ton of them in even the smallest stocking, brightly colored, completely unique, and she can wear them right away! She will not be getting a duplicate of this gift!

Choose a small grouping of bindi styles for more impact. One or two large fancy bindi (maybe a belly bindi or arm band bindi tattoo) and a few packs of small bindi styles that can be mixed and matched with the larger bindi are a great combination. Bindi start at only $2.99!

Glass Bangles
Yes, I really said glass! Our glass bangle sets contain 13-30 bangles and most are only $9.99. Select her favorite colors or go with holiday colors for a can't miss gift. If you don't know her size, try the 2.10 M/L. More than half of my customers are this popular size.

Local Orlando Holiday Shopping
If you are local and can stop by our shop, we have some great store only items to select from.

Tiny handmade lac pill boxes are great for stockings. Place a piece of candy or a ring in the boxes for an extra treat!

Hand knitted Karma Scarves by Celia are brightly colored, warm, fuzzy, and packed with good vibes. You can match bindi and bangles to the Karma scarves for a total package stocking.

Don't get the same old same old this year to fill her stocking. Be unique! Be noticed!
