Wedding Beauty and Fashion

When it comes to weddings we all know some people tend to freak out and start booking all sorts of appointments for hair, make up, alterations etc. But, if we all take a nice long breathe and  realize that we are just as capable doing it ourselves life becomes much simpler :) You then have a choice of getting all the beauty done or doing it yourself. First step would be to do some research and figure out the style and look you are going for which should always work with your dress, shoes and jewelry as in the end you want to look like the complete package. The colors of your eye shadows should normally match with the color of your dress same goes for lipstick. Your nail polish should also play a role in your outfit. For this particular one I went with red to match my lips. Now preparing for the big day would also consist of maybe doing some facial cleansing and exfoliating to close your pores so that make up goes on smoothly. I like to use the Clarisonic brush w a scrub to exfoliate my skin. It works like magic. There are several other brands on the market that are slightly cheaper with same effect. Below are several pictures of myself and how I did my hair and make up for my friend's wedding. Since I was going to the Beverly Hills hotel my immediate thought was Old Hollywood Glamor and so I went with the Hollywood glam finger waves for my hair, red lips and just a nice white skin tone with no tan with a bit of shimmer. Very Marilyn Monroe :)

just thoughts.... after being in a trap

Hi everyone this is my first blog, I haven't really wrote one in quite a long time. I'd like to express myself by revealing my feelings and thoughts from time to time. At this time I'm going thru what you can call a revelation. I've realized that the person I was dating on and off for 3 yrs now has turned out to be a complete stranger to me. I know him inside out probably better than he knows himself but I'd prefer for him to be a stranger from now on. Although we've lived together for about 2 yrs the whole relationship was pretty much on my shoulders because i was the head of the relationship unfortunately because I was blindly in love. But what can you say more than just shit happens and you have to live and learn and move on. It was almost like babysitting a child, he had no job was trying to do stuff with his life but it wasn't really working out, and i can admit that he was pretty much taking advantage of the situation, but because love is so blind i c…

Christian louboutin fantasy come true.....

Madison Avenue, New York City, 4 years ago. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I walked into the Christian Louboutin store and saw these timeless special edition So Kate pumps called Tissu 😍 The red nails and fingers were a classic print.  I looked at the price and the shoes were over 1k. I was in no position to buy them for that price and so I left the store with just a dream in mind..... I randomly came across them on eBay a month ago, lost them in an auction twice and both times the winner didn't pay, I finally contacted the seller and offered a price I was able to pay and she accepted it. You never Know unless you ask. Today these brand new beauties are mine! Moral of the story is when it's meant to be it will be. I wanted them enough to make them become mine even if it's 4 years later ❤️ #behindTheFashion

How I started selling on EBAY

Today I want to talk about how I started selling on EBAY. It's a rather interesting story. As some of you may know I have a hustle instilled in me that runs in my bloodline and actually comes straight from my dad. My dad has been working since he was I believe about 11 years old. He has worked in many different fields until he discovered his talent which was antiques and art. He is a truly incredible artist and owns his own restoration business called Bach Antiques, at which he practically lives. I mean this man works 24/7 literally. But that's a whole different story that I'll save for another post.

The spark to start selling on EBAY first came about when I was asked to go to Sundance Film Festival by the Ciroc events company that I was working for at the time. I jumped at the opportunity and really loved the whole experience. As you may know there are a lottttt of perks that come with going to Sundance and one of them was of course the many gift bags that are given out a…
