Weekend Catch Up...Valentines Day Look

Hi Bellas,

Sorry for my delayed posting. I had a crazy weekend and took a sick day on Monday to recover. As I mentioned before I had my friend from home coming in for the weekend to celebrate her birthday. She also brought a friend to stay with her of whom we had not met before. All I have to say is “Drama Central”! My friends and I (meaning my friends here in Atlanta) hardly have any drama, and we all maintain a nice equilibrium. When my friend Cindy came into town, she brought her drama with her! Mainly it was her friend Tasha who caused the tension. Basically, she was just an inconsiderate house guest. My roommate Alex graciously gave up her bed so that my friend Cindy could sleep in there with Tasha. I won’t go into too much detail, but let’s say that by the 3rd night, my roommate Alex told Cindy “So where’s Tasha sleeping tonight?” . Cindy replied, “With me” and Alex responded “Oh no, she’s not sleeping in MY bed. If she apologizes and it’s okay with Ren, she can sleep on the couch”. Ouchers! So instead, Tasha didn’t even sleep at our apartment, she slept at her cousin’s place. Crazy huh? I’m wondering why she didn’t stay there in the first place…

Anyhow, this weekend I was able to do Cindy’s makeup. I gave her a soft silver and blue look which looked really pretty on her. Unfortunately she wears these blue colored contacts which really irritate her eyes so every time I tried doing her eye makeup her eyes would tear up! Luckily I had visine on hand…just another situation you need to anticipate when doing one’s makeup. I’ll post pictures later.

Since I was layed out at home yesterday I was able to edit my Valentine’s Day look…it came out pretty well. It’s not really a really artsy bright red or pink V-Day look…instead I tried to pick something soft and pretty that someone could really wear on a Valentine’s Day date…a look that wouldn’t freak a guy out, because you know they sometimes get intimidated when us girls where our bright looks. I might do another more funky/extreme V-day look if I have time. I added my fav song of the moment “with you” by Chris Brown to the video. I hope you guys enjoy!
