Friday Recap! Off to New Orleans tomorrow!

Hi Bellas!


It's Friday, woo hoo! This week has been super long, I think because I'm excited about my mini trip to New Orleans this weekend! I'm really excited! We're staying right on Bourbon Street at the Chateau Bourbon. We picked this hotel because of the location. That way when we go out at night, no one has to drive! No DD's in this bunch, lol.










I plan on eating Beignets, Drinking Hand Grenades and Daquiris and relaxing! I've been doing a lot of makeup gigs lately that have tuckered me out...combined with my full time job, my blog which I try to post every Monday - Friday, 2 videos a week on YouTube, and working out...I don't get a lot of free time and I'm a little Makeuped out (is that a word, lol). However, I did offer to give the BF's sister a makeover, lol. I couldn't resist! I'll post a before and after next week. I packed really smart too makeup wise too.

I'll come back and post a pic during lunch.


Last night I went to MAC and picked up a few refills, a blush from the Grand Duo Collection, and some stuff from Sugarsweet...I'm actually wearing one of the MSFs to work now, so pretty!


Here are my upcoming videos:

This Monday - Prom Makeup Tutorial (I didn't realize I used a lot of the same colors from the Sugarsweet collection, lol, I did it before I hauled)

This Wednesday - Sugarsweet haul vid

Next Monday and Wednesday - Tutorial on the Sugarsweet collection on my bestie Alex! I've gotten many requests to do makeup on other people - she's an NW45 also for the women of color out there who think they can't rock the same looks I do. This might have to be a two parter video.

So I probably won't have a post on Monday since I'll be out of town :( But my YouTube video will be up. I'll be back to regular posting on Tuesday. I'll miss you all. Ethereal Prey, I'm taking food porn pics just for you!

Have a fun & safe trip! New Orleans is on my "list" of places to go!

divinexjanice said...

Hey girl! <3 Your blog, been following you on twitter. When you go to 504 you gotta check out this place http://www.creolecreamery.com/ Enjoy your short but hopefully sweet vacation you deserve it!

southern_gyrl said...

Oh! Have fun! I wished I'd have known you were coming down! N.O. is like 45 minutes away, and this is me and my DH 9th wedding anniversary tomorrow...we're gonna be there too....sort of a "stay-cation", if you will. Small world.

If you want some of the best creole food, try the Praline Connection. Prepare for a wait. Red beans, rice, turkey legs,greens and OMG, the fried chicken. If you feel a bit adventerous...try the gator sausage. I happen to love it.

Try Cental Deli/Grocery on Decatur for an excellent muffelatta.

If you want an excellent, and HUGE burger, try the Port of Call. Take my advise...skip the bacon bits on the baked potato... also be prepared for a wait.

If you're looking for clothes...try Magazine St. There's a boutique there that has clothes from 1.00 jeans to 700.00 shirts. A good bit of vintage, and samples that didn't make a line.


I hope you have a great time, and Laissez le bon ton roulette!!!
