  • Rissy Roo's at the JCC of Atlantic County Sip & Shop in Margate NJ

    All of our local Roo Girls know we love to be a part of our southern New Jersey community. The latest in community fun came last week, on Wednesday, July 12th, when Rissy Roo's attended as the Fashion Sponsor at the JCC of Atlantic County's Sip & Shop Ladies' Night Out Shopping & Wine Tasting Event.

    The special one-night Sip & Shop event was for a great cause, to help JCC facilitate sensory play in their early childhood education classrooms. All proceeds from the 2017 Sip & Shop Ladies Night Out went to support the effort to enhance the sensory centers in each of JCC's preschool classrooms. The purpose of the sensory centers is for children to learn important skills, including math, science, physical development, and social and emotional skills.

    Over $4,800 was raised for the early childhood education center classrooms, and it was such a fun community event that brought together both local vendors and national vendors, who traveled in for the special event.

    Other than Rissy Roo's attending as the Fashion Sponsor, Salon Kink was also a sponsor of the event. They styled the hair on all of our Roo Girl models at the event, and even did the makeup for our Roo Girl Juli!

    Thirty six vendors were present in total, including Lululemon Athletica, Aearance Dermatology, Arbonne, BathFitter, Bocca, Brace Urcelf, Cutco, Embellish, Hope Jewel, India Hicks, Le Fashion Cottage, Lularoe, Lusciously Scented, Marilyn Chackman, Mary Kay, Messed & Distressed, Monat, NuSkin, Paper Chase, Pendant of Light, Perfectly Posh, Premier Designs Jewelers, Psychic Answers, Pure Romance, RetroChic Beauty, Sabai Soap, Stella & Dot, Sugar on Topp, LLC, Tara Bella, Traveling Jewels, Usborne Books and More, Wildtree, Younique, and 3 Girls Gifts. Bocca may have been one of our favorite vendors because they provided delicious pizzas and appetizers for everyone!

From left to right, Emma wore Sherri Hill 50608, Mackenzie wore Dancing Queen 9484, Juli wore Faviana 8093, Skyler wore Alyce 2648, and Morgan wore Sherri Hill 51404.

  • The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year is Greenery

    The year 2016 was all about balance, with Pantone naming two colors as the Color of the Year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. Now, with 2017 upon us, it's time for a brand new Color of the Year. This year is all about new beginnings, with Pantone announcing Greenery as the 2017 Color of the Year.


    In the announcement, Pantone explained that Greenery (PANTONE 15-0343) is a yellow-green shade, "that evokes the first days of spring when nature's greens revive, restore and renew." The hope is that it reminds consumers to, "take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate." With a contentious election that just ended a few weeks ago, and a new president taking office in January, this is certainly an important message to remember and take to heart.  Continue reading

  • Demi Lovato Covers Adele's "When We Were Young" At Cleveland Concert

    Adele's voice is pure gold. From "Hello" to "Someone Like You," she has an incredible sound to her that most singers, no matter how talented, would never begin to attempt to mimic. Except for one... the talented Demi Lovato, of course. The singer is currently on her tour for "Future Now: The Tour." During her Cleveland performance on Friday, September 2nd, Demi surprised and stunned the audience with a cover of Adele's "When We Were Young."

    Youtuber JWBGSU explained that while on stage, Demi explained that she had a special treat for Cleveland and that she wanted to sing one of her favorite songs. But, she had never sung it before. In true Demi fashion, she went on to sing the emotional ballad "When We Were Young," and it was obviously amazing. Check out a video of the performance below.

    In just one week, the fan-uploaded video of Demi's performance already has over 700,000 views. A sign of just how incredible Demi's version of Adele's song is.  Continue reading

  • You Voted, And Now We Have A New M&Ms Flavor

    While the presidential election season has been heated, Mars decided to have a little fun and cast a 2016 election of their own. M&M's fans had from March 1st through June 17th this year to vote for which of four peanut flavor ideas they'd like to see in stores: Chili Nut, Honey Nut, Coffee Nut, and Original Nut (some might call it the OG!). M&M's said that the four nut flavors "are going head-to-head" in a consumer promotion to determine America's Favorite Peanut.

    The polls are in, the people have spoken, and the nut of choice is Coffee Nut (of course, OG Nut won't be going anywhere, though)! We're thinking some huge Starbucks fans may have been swaying the polls on this one. The new flavor will be in stores in August, so keep a look-out for it.

    The announcement of the winner was made this past Monday, July 25th, on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in a pretty silly video featuring actor Tony Hale talking to his BFF, Yellow M&M.

    The big question that it seems like we'll just have to wait until August for is whether or not the new Coffee Nut M&M's will include many people's favorite part about coffee... the caffeine! A little chocolate.. a little caffeine... could make for a nice afternoon snack, rather than stopping by Starbucks to pick up that frapp. Then again, with October just around the corner, who could say no to a Pumpkin Spice Latte? So, maybe it's not so much about one or the other, but eating Coffee Nut M&M's while drinking Starbucks! This fall's looking pretty promising already...

  • Our Miss New Jersey 2016 is Brenna Weick

    The Miss New Jersey 2016 Pageant was held this past weekend in our very own backyard, Ocean City, NJ. The pageant had the perfect backdrop on the Ocean City boardwalk in the Music Peir, and all of the contestants looked gorgeous.

    Ultimately, it all came down to one girl, and it was a very special girl this year, as she is no stranger to the Miss New Jersey pageant. Brenna Weick, of Mantua, Gloucester County, is our new Miss New Jersey 2016! After finishing as the runner-up twice and the second runner-up in the last three Miss New Jersey pageants, she was finally crowned Miss New Jersey herself. You can watch the special crowning moment in the video above.  Continue reading

  • Deshauna Barber is Our Miss USA 2016!

    The Miss USA pageant is always fun to watch, as there are so many talented, beautiful women, all competing for the right to wear one crown. This year's competition was especially fierce, but it ultimately came down to two: Miss District of Columbia, Deshauna Barber, and Miss Hawaii, Chelsea Hardin. They were both asked difficult interview questions, and stunned all with their answers. It couldn't have been a closer call, but Miss District of Columbia, Deshauna Barber, is now reporting for duty as our new Miss USA 2016!


    Yup, that's right: she is reporting for duty because she is an Army Reserve officer, and showed just how much the army means to her in her response to her interview question. The 26-year-old from the nation's capital was asked by judge Joe Zee whether the Pentagon's decision to open up all combat roles to women had, "put political correctness over our military ability to perform." The 1st Lt. responded in style, saying, "As a woman in the United States Army, I think it was an amazing job by our government to allow women to integrate into every branch of the military."  Continue reading

  • Cleveland Browns' Cameron Erving Surprised High School Senior Elna By Taking Her To Prom

    Elna is 17 years old, and is a high school senior in Elyria, Ohio. She is nonverbal and uses a wheelchair because she has a rare progressive disorder. Her boyfriend, Cody Wilson, died last fall, and didn't have a date for prom. Her parents, Ebony and Ingrid Wright, took to social media to see if an athlete of the Cleveland Browns might take her to prom, as Elna is a big cleveland sports fan. Cleveland Browns center Cameron Erving stepped up to tackle prom with Elna, and it couldn't have been sweeter! Watch the video below to learn more about Elna's special night.

    We couldn't agree more with Cameron's statement: "I jumped at the opportunity, because I always thought that everyone deserves a great prom." As Elna's brother, Miles Wright, commented, prom is a culmination of your high school experience, as you move onto new stages in your life. We're so glad that Cameron helped to make Elna's prom such a special night for her. Cameron said about his experience: "Words can't really describe how I feel right now... To be able to bring that much joy to someone's life with such a small gesture." Continue reading

  • Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach, Writes Touching Facebook Post to Miss Colombia

    We're sure everyone already knows about the mix-up that happened during the Miss Universe 2015 pageant, as it was all over the news and left Miss Columbia understandably devastated. We certainly feel for Miss Columbia, and the new Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach (former Miss Philippines), does, too. She wrote a touching Facebook post on the Miss Universe Facebook page acknowledging Miss Columbia, Ariadna Gutierrez, for her amazing job throughout the pageant and pleading for peace amongst those still bickering about what happened during the pageant. Check it out below.

    Wow. Words can't describe how grateful I am for this. It was quite a journey getting here with 3 attempts at winning...
