Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another video.  This is only the second tag video I've done about of the 360 plus videos up on my YouTube page.  Today it's time for the Boyfriend Tag!  I got Mike to take part of this fun video.  It's a nice break from makeup and a great way to get to know both of us a little better.


Hi Bellas,

I'm currently on vacation spending time with the BF's family but I wanted to wish all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy Holidays! 

In the meantime, check out this Christmas Ornament from my parent's Christmas tree.  My brother was home visiting and took a picture and tagged me in facebook, he he.  

 I'll be back in a few days with more posts!  I hope you're having a Happy Holiday Season!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review.  I can't believe I almost forgot to post this!  It's been sitting patiently in my blog post queue for months, but better late than never!  The famous Glamour Lighting Kit has been one of the hottest items that have recently released and they sell out at every makeup show.  This kit is a must-have for those of us who need good lighting for making YouTube videos or for Makeup Artists that need portable lighting for gigs.


Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review.  This one is a little bit different.  I've partnered with Cindy Crawford's Skincare Line "Meaningful Beauty" to do an experiment.  I'm breaking out of my shell and trying a new skincare regimen and I'm taking you with me.  Today I'll feature my first thoughts on the product.  In about a month, I'll show you the results and host a giveaway for you to try!

Hi Bellas,

Happy Tuesday!  Sorry for no post yesterday but I was enjoying a much needed vacation in Puerto Rico for the weekend!   I had a fabulous time...from the beach, casino, horseback riding, ATV and yummy cuisine, i'm going to be catching up on sleep for the next few days, lol.  School is officially over for the semester so I'll also be doing lots of blog posts and videos.  Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you the winners of my last two Friday Giveaways!

Hi Bellas,

This blog post was way overdue...but I wanted to make sure that it included every single piece of knowledge and all the pictures I could fit in.  I attended an amazing class featuring Celebrity MUA and my personal inspiration Sam Fine a few weeks ago.  The class was packed full of makeup enthusiasts and artists just eager to learn from the man himself.  I have video, plenty of pics and tips!


Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving break.  Sorry for no post yesterday but I was recouperating from my trip to Orlando these last few days and on top of it, I have finals for my MBA this week, craziness!  Who studies during Thanksgiving break, sheesh! LOL

Anywho, I wanted to share a great deal for those of you looking for a traincase.  My friends at www.Yazmo.com are having a Cyber Week long special!



Hi Bellas,

First off, Happy Thanksgiving!  I'm currently home in Orlando with the BF and the parents celebrating the holiday and giving thanks for the year's blessings.  It's been a great year and I have so much to thank you all for.  As a thank you to everyone...I promise to have a Friday Giveaway through the end of 2011 to shower my lovely viewers with Holiday goodies.  I hope you all (at least those in the US lol) are having a fantastic Thanksgiving.

Also, thanks to everyone for participating in last Friday's Giveaway for the Tatcha Blotting Sheets!  Check out the winners after the jump!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another video tutorial!  Halloween is far from over, so it's about time that I post a good old, wearable makeup tutorial, lol.  You recently saw my recent FOTD featuring Aveda.  Today I went for a dramatic, jewel toned look featuring many of the vibrant colors from the collection.  If you like deep, smokey eyes with color, this one is for you!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review!  You all know that I am obsessed with brows.  Anastasia is one of the Holy Grail brands for brow lovers and i'm a huge fan of her products.  I recently had the chance to try out one of their newest kits and it came right in time for my new hair and brow color.

Hi Bellas,

As you all know, I ended up wearing the Mermaid Look for Halloween.  I wanted to show you actual pictures of the look I wore from Halloween.  For the actual night, I ended up punching up the color and drama a bit.  It's fun, jewel toned rainbow look that I think my bright makeup lovers will really like!

Hi Bellas,


I'm back with another review and giveaway.  I've had the chance to try a new product from one of my favorite companies Tatcha.  They're famous for their Gold Leaf Paper Blotting Sheets.  Even more famously, Mario Dedivanovic (Kim K's makeup artist) uses them regularly on his clients.  Recently they came out with a new version of the sheets which makes an awesome edition to your clutches for all the holiday parties you'll be attending this year.

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another fun post.  I had the chance a few weeks ago to attend an awesome event - The Bravo  Real Housewives Tour.  Who here loves the Real Housewives series?  I do, I do!  This tour went to different cities around the country and it featured a panel discussion with some of our favorite Housewives from the hit Bravo series.  They came to Atlanta and my girls and I thought it would make a great girls night out.  We dressed up, I did some makeup and we had an awesome time.

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another event post.  All of my friends know that i'm a night owl.  Yet a couple of weeks ago, I willingly woke myself to be at a 7:30am event on a Saturday morning.  Why you ask?  Well to attend a  Nordstrom Beauty Trend Show!  This was definitely something worth waking up early for.  It was pretty awesome - beauty products galore!  My local Nordstrom (Perimeter Mall in Atlanta) is one of 22 across the country that hosts this runway show featuring beauty trends from our favorite brands.

Hi Bellas,

I apologize for no post yesterday but unexpectandly I found myself at the hospital for 14 hours yesterday with 1.5 hours of sleep because my bestie gave birth to her baby boy!  It was an amazing experience and perfect timing for this entry!  This post isn't really beauty related, but I definitely wanted to share it with you all.  A few weeks ago, my friends and I threw out best friend a baby shower.  It was a fabulous time and I wanted to show you all pics!  Hopefully this will give you guys ideas if you happen to be planning a shower.  Oh and did I mention that all of the Shower Planners wore matching red lips?  he he


Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another Halloween tutorial!  I filmed this one Sunday night after a long day of studying for a Corporate Finance exam this week, lol.  It's always good to blow off a little steam with a super fun makeup look.  I knew I wanted to do a Lady Gaga look this year, I mean she is an icon.  There were so many looks to choose from but I think I came up with something really fun, dramatic, but super easy to do!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial!  This is another option for Halloween but I actually wore this look to celebrate the season premiere of the Walking Dead on AMC.  This is an amazing film set in Atlanta which shows what would happen if the world was taken over by Zombies.  I took two of my favorite characters - Pin-Up and Zombie and combined them into one fabulous costume!

Hi Bellas,

Hope all is well! Sorry for the no post yesterday, I think I had one of the busiest weeks ever and took Monday off as a vacation day. I was in New York the end of last week for business, and came back to a crazy weekend. Friday evening I flew home and went straight to a Zombie Haunted House, Saturday Morning I had an 8 person wedding, Saturday evening I went to the Real Housewives Tour in Atlanta, Sunday I had the Sam Fine Makeup Class, and Sunday night I had my Walking Dead Viewing Party. Along the way, there was makeup makeup makeup, lol.

I have so many awesome posts coming up featuring these fun events. You may notice in the pictures that my hair looks a little different. Well I went darker a few weeks ago and never really mentioned it anywhere except twitter. Here are a few shots of my new color!
