Shoot with the artist...Moye

This Thursday, I will have the sincere pleasure of working with an artist I have admired for years! I have admittedly labeled myself as one of her "groupies", and further more proud of it! She has produced images that have literally taken my breath away...yet and still consistently leaving an heir of mystery, in photo and in person. There are many you can say that you like their work...there are few you can say you respect their art. Moye is that artist.
So when she posted a photo special for only $65!!! OH! a sista had to jump on that!!!! LOL! (You just don't get work like this for that amount of money) And as much as I would like to keep it all to myself, I thought I'd be nice and share it with y'all. :) So you don't have to be jealous when you see my new pics...you can just get your own! LOL!;) But in all seriousness...this is a gift, to share her art this way. To give us a cost effective way to share her talent... I totally dig it and...Respect it! I'll be sure to post the pics...but most def, get your own!

Check out more of her work here...

Kisses! ;-*

Commercial for Enso

ENSO :: Asian Bistro :: Sushi Never Looked So Good from Andre Araiz on Vimeo.

I absolutely love the fact that my career path has so much flexibility! One day can be a photo shoot, the next a wedding, or even freelancing for a company. This was one of those right place at the right time opportunities! I was actually just chillin and my girl called me up...said the MUA on this project flaked and they needed somebody asap! Luckily I was there to save the day! And look how cool! A commercial for Enso! Actually did a little hair on this gig too. Turned out quite nice too...if I do say so myself! ;) Shouts to Famous Nobody and Shanae "Lady Truth" Levine!
That's the beauty of freelancing in this biz...u just never know what you're gona get! And I am truly thankful for the opportunities that find me! :) Here's a couple behind the scenes pics I snapped on my phone...all in a days work! ;) Kisses ;-*

On the way to Beauty Editing! :)

Check out 2 Posts that I was quoted in on Tyra Banks New Beauty Site...Type F!  How to Wear Your Makeup Perfectly  and The Best Nude Tone Lipstick !!! It's so exciting! :) I love giving makeup tips, especially real ones that don't sugar coat the truth. My newest aspiration is to become a beauty editor for a major publication! (Hello Universe!...Is this thing on? LMAO) My last attempt to merge my journalism degree and this cosmetology path that I chose. Totally surreal to see yourself quoted like this, but I guess I know what I'm talkin about after 7 years of doin this! lol  Anyhoo...I definitely feel this is a step in the right direction! Many thanks to my girl Amelia Keith and her blog  Pretty in the Queen City!! For writing the article and using my expertise!

She's actually having an event this Thursday too! :) A Skinny Girl Margarita Party!! Find more info here > Skinny Girl Margarita Party at BluPrint   

Hope to see ya there!  Kisses! ;-*

A Present Moment...

Well! It's been a minute since I've just written what's on my mind...so here goes it! :)
Life sure is a fascinating journey! I never...EVER...thought I would be here, at 30 years old. When I was a little girl my vision of me, now, was no where close to this. But the fabulous thing about it is...I'm happy. :)

Single...no children...make my own money...pay my own bills(most of em anyway!) and doin my own thang. I think I'm finally ready to just step out and enjoy life...every unpredictable moment! The past 3 decades have been about other people... long term relationships, family, toxic friendships, etc. I've had my fair share of life's hard blows, some to knock the wind outa me quite frankly! lol But, I have been blessed  in the process of God guiding me through the tests, to get to this very point...I am finally strong enough to do it on my own. In fact I always have been...I just needed to see it on my own! ;)

I'm so ready to go after exactly what I want, to manifest the destiny that belongs to me. To get the man I want, reach the level in my career I want, have the family I want, and live the lifestyle I want. And it starts here...I will accept no less than exactly what I want. Because I deserve it, and I'm willing to work hard for it...and though it may be taking a little longer than I ever dreamed as a little girl. God knows, it'll be worth the wait! ;) Shouts out to the 30 something's who aren't where they thought they would be...but doin just fine!!! 
Kisses!!! ;-*
