Just like old time

I didn’t get shit done today as for as returning phone calls and/or emails:))) but I had a great day with my friends. So many people stop by the studio to see me and talk and network and laugh and just being silly as I tried to pretend to work and do some business. My first vistor for the day was Shontell and she was the second to last to leave me after 5pm. Then I had a real client who came in for lashes. Then Mel and Brittany arrived at the same time but not together. Brittany had a 1pm brow shaping appointment and Mel just came to hang.After everyone left Shontell and I went on a walking field trip to get lunch and that was really a field trip. Came back then the permit guy Travis stopped by from City Hall and he stayed for a minute…and of course he approved my permit:))) While Travis was still her Cherie my publicst stopped by for me to overlook some paperwork she had just completed. At 2:45 I had to run to the 2 different banks to make a deposit so Shontell held down the studio until I came back. Fred pulled up at the same time and he joined the group. Mel went to meet Xavier the guy who did my website so she can get hers up and running fast. Plus Xavier is going back to Paris on the 10th so she needed to hurry.

Everybody started heading out around 5-5:30pm cuz Iwas supposed to have a real client who was a no-show. So I returned a few calls and worked on a few wedding contracts. I have so much more paperwork left and 8 more calls to make but now I am really tired. It’s raining outside so I really don’t feel like doing anything. But, I have to pack up for my 8:30am bride on tomorrow. I just want to fall asleep right now. It’s 7:21 pm and I just feel like taking a nap.

The last 2 days I worked on location with Urban NYC and it’s been long hours. Yesterday on the shoot my son Jordan ended up being one of the kid model and MY BABY NAILED IT!!!! That was so funny how that happen.

So today was a very good day…I love my real peeps. We just laugh at each other all day cuz all of us are crazy in the head. Now that I am back for a little while I hope to be finished with the studio like next week or so. It’s a lot of work but I ain’t scared:))

Glam life of a makeup artist

Still Piss

And another thing…If I am walking around with my makeup belt around my waist, carrying a large pink makeup kit and one hand, a large black bag and another hand, and I have a hair kit bag around my waist…do you think I have time to stop and put all that down and answer the phone only to be told that “BEYONCE & JAY-Z is getting married”…are you fucking kidding me!!! And you blow my phone up for that dumb shit and have the nerve to get nasty because I don’t call you back…I’m not or

And how do I know YOU??????

Don’t Piss Me Off

I just have to vent as I sit on set doing rally nothing at the moment. I always say or tell new people that come into my life that I am NOT…I repeat…I am NOT…that girl or friend that can play on the phone or hang out all day. My career is very important to me and especially now as I rebuild my business and my name as a Makeup Artist I don’t have time just lounging around doing nothing and gossip, shopping, going get nails done or going see the new movie and etc. I work long hours and my day usually starts when most people are still sleeping. I’ve already put in 3 hours so far. So when I have down time like now on set I don’t have anyone to call who can talk because I respect that my friends or asleep, or getting ready for school or work or dealing with their kids. So I don’t call them and chat and chat and chat when I know damn well they can’t talk to me. So, I don’t get angry or mad an throw a fucking fit.

So, I would like people to respect my schedule as well and understand that when I am at work don’t blow my damn phone up. If I don’t pick up then understand that I must be working in can not talk. Unless your going to pay for the production company to stop filming so I can speak to you then don’t expect for me to answer the phone. I explain that I can respond by text and if you don’t like to text that’s your ass. I am working so I can’t just stop and ignore what’s going on to entertain you with not important topics you want to speak about. Stop texting me these chain letters…I don’t do chain letters so stop.

This is why I keep my list of friends short because I don’t have the time to deal with new people who need that type of attention daily. Blowing up my cell phone or emailing me 4 or 5 times a DAY…is some stalker shit. I don’t play that. Maybe something was going on yesterday because everybody was PMSing with me. But new fucking people that I don’t deal with on a regular due not have the right to send me nasty emails or voice message. Now when I have time to play and don’t have any assignment I make sure I call and invite or make time for FRIENDS…but if you piss me off don’t think your coming into my circle.

UNDERSTAND THIS…If you are a person that is sensitive…need a friend that you can call all day and just talk about stupid shit and just hold the phone saying nothing…you need a friend to go see the new movie…you need a friend who like to gossip…need a friend to just sit around the house with you…need a friend to play on the internet and read all the different websites…need a friend to play dumb games with your man…I AM NOT THAT FRIEND!!!

Gotta go back to work.

On A Crazy Mission Today

Ok you know my mission is to be an A-list
makeup artist. I don't know if you thought
I forgot all about it. Going to the special
invited L'Oreal event in Connecticut,
being called about the NBA All-Star 2009
and just last weekend being in Tampa, Florida
doing makeup with L'Oreal cosmetics and having
women love my work…let me stop lieing to
to you…havin women ask for my card and one girl
ask if I would come back in October for her
wedding. So, I know I must get movin more
than I am.

I have been on The Knot a wedding/bridal website
for about 4 years now and I was told
about the new issue that's out. I am going
to go buy one to see if I made the list as
one their top vendors in my market. But,
because I didn't get any calls from brides
saying they saw my name listed that's how
I have a feelin I ain't in it…

So, with that said I am about to push myself
like a crazy woman. If yall think yall can't
get in touch with my black ass now wait
to what's about to happen.

This boy is stupid… I am watching Mason Betha
this morning. When I can I try to catch him
in the morning. I love starting my day off
watching him. I have been able to listen
to his sermon and not see the rapper MASE.
I actually reaaly get his words and I do feel
like I got feed. It's like when I hear Pastor
Rowe from Upperroom Church in New Oroeans
East. He just said something real but it was
crazy how he deoivered it.

Of course I am home today but have a lot
to today. I am about to head out to the studio.
I have Mike the sign guy coming by. The same
one I used before. I email Xavier to see if
we could get together to do some update
on the site. I have tons of emails to brides
and I need to get in touch with my makeup
peopoe. I need to get some makeup in
to retail. once I get in touch with Mark Bloom
in LA about the new name for the makeup
and I get copyright to it I'll share it with
yall later.

I think the city inspector is suppose to
come by this week. One of my girls have
been helping me while I was gone. She
has been handling my paperwork cuz I had to
renew everything because of the new location.
Since I had to do the out of town dates
she offer to assist me with that since she
works at City Hall. How sweet was that.

Alright my babies I am out… gotta go
make myself an A-list makeup artist.
