I Missed You & I’m Back

1 Sep

Hi Beauties,

I truly miss you guys…What’s going on? “How you doin?”

Anyways, we have so much catching up to do. I have no idea where to even start, but I would like to try by saying THANK YOU to all of my friends, fam, new and usual beauties. You guys are the reason that I am back at it again. It’s a wonderful feeling when I run into you Beauties and you tell how much you really like a lipstick or eyeshadow I recommended, a look that you got inspired by and tried, or hell the fact that you even trying things outside the box lol.

So I started a new venture, but in the height of my production I got a new job. God is good because it was so unexpected, but it also took me a little off track. Right now I am trying to find a happy medium for both. I’m not ready to spill the beans on my new project yet, but you better know that it is HAUTE

I don’t like breaking promises, so let’s start with a small commitment to catch up with you guys at least once a week. I’m also going to start doing more Face of the Day again, so please hold tight.

In between time I encourage you to reach out to me and let me know what you would like to talk about. Product reviews, relationships, hair, it really does not matter. We can talk about it all!

Until next time Beauties…MUAH

St. Patrick’s Day Look 2012

18 Mar

Hi Beauties…I trust that everyone had a beautiful and safe St. Patrick’s day. So I have to be honest, I usually have no idea when St. Patrick’s Day really is. I would be out at one of the neighborhood bars, and would randomly see people dressed in all green when I put two and two together. Every year I would say that looks fun….oh we should dress up next year (by dress up I clearly mean a Tee lol). Well, this year” I DID IT” and my husband and I had a ball. Here a few pics of my makeup for the festivities….FYI I was in a rush so I took pics with my Iphone. Hope you enjoy!!!

Blues Clues

1 Dec

Hi Beauties…Yesterday I did a look using the Wet N Wild 8 Palette “Blue had me at hello”, and indeed it did!  I purchased it from Walgreens a months ago along with two other palettes that came out in the collection for about $7 bucks. I won’t go into too many details because I did a review video that I will share with you guys shortly. I will say that the colors are very vibrant and my MAC sisters even liked them!!!

R.I.P Amy Winehouse

25 Jul

 

Hi Beauties…I don’t like sad posting, but I have to speak about the loss of Amy Winehouse. Winehouse, age 27, was found dead in her London Flat on Saturday. The autopsy report released today was inconclusive, but more test are expected to figure out the cause of Winehouse’s death. The Grammy winning star struggled publicly for years with mental health issues, drugs, and alcohol. Many speculate that her death was attributed to a drug over dose.

“Back to Black” was Amy Winehouse’s second largest selling album. Individual downloads of tracks like “Rehab” sold about 30,000 copies before the charts closed on Sunday, according to Billboard, and “You know that I’m no good” around 15,000 copies. It’s kind of sad how we appreciate people more when they are no longer with us. I think it would have been much more rewarding if Winehouse could have seen these record-breaking numbers before she died.

I personally own “BACK TO BLACK”, and I have to say the album is sick.  Her music puts me in the mind of old Harlem in the “Cotton Club” days. I was completely blown away the first time I heard that soulful voice come out such a petite frame. She had so much talent and her whole life ahead of her. You will truly be missed Amy Winehouse!

Until next time Beauties…Muah

Celebrity Hair Stylist Sophia Alston shows off a sassy hue of red, giving this classic look a modern twist. Can we say SEXY!

Ms. Jasmine…AKA Jayonce rocking the asian inspired ponytail. Soft, Sweet, Simple! She’s so ahead of the game…muah

Beauté Note: Give your hair a break and try one of these stylish do’s…do not pull your hair too tight as it WILL cause breakage!
