What I Did for My Birthday Weekend (Plus My Short Reflection on Getting Older)!

Hello there! How's everyone doing?  Hope you all had a fab weekend.  Mine was very eventful for more reasons than one, but especially because I celebrated my twenty-uhhhh birthday (I'm still in my 20's, that's all you need to know :p )!  I seriously don't know where time flies...in my mind, I'm at least 5 years younger!  It's like once you turn 18 or 21, the years start to race ahead.  But I must say that I'm definitely wiser and that I'm grateful for.  I still have more learning/practicing of life lessons to do...for instance, actually living in the present...it seems so simple, such a beautiful notion...but applying it to daily life doesn't come so easily (especially when things get hectic).  Or, accepting each and every one of my flaws.  How many of us can say we actually do?  That's something to work on.  As much as I love makeup and beauty and glamour and the works, I think it's even more important to do the inner work.  No, I know it's more important.  Beauty inside and out is the goal

Anywhooo, see that photo above?  That's me heading out to meet a group of friends for my birthday brunch on Sunday.  I had dinner the night before in Harlem, which was great...and then Sunday I continued the food fest (I love a good meal)...Click below for more photos.....

BEHIND THE SCENES: She Looks Just Like a Barbie Doll!

Happy Monday everyone! ....I can't believe the summer has drifted away already.  Here in NYC you can already feel the Fall chill in the air, though technically the season hasn't yet changed...but that's September for ya.  Anywho, I wanted to show you guys photos from a magazine shoot I did last summer.  I'm just now posting this because I had to wait for the issue to come out (which it never did)...so here I am a year later.  The professional shots were taken by photographer Anastasia Blades....hair was done by Myss Monique...and of course, makeup by yours truly! ... I swear this model looked like a real-life Barbie doll (especially in my behind-the-scenes photos).  Her name is Sam Fox by the way!
