One of my favorite accessories after getting dressed whether it’s for a casual event or a special occasion is a beautiful, seductive bottle of parfum. Each perfume I select has a story of how I am feeling at the very moment. Some days, I feel pretty, sexy, flirty, fancy or just fun and romantic. Not only do I buy for the packaging, but I buy for the lovely notes.
Being a Celebrity Makeup Artist I got to travel a lot with my celebrity clients that I looked forward to traveling with them to find the fancy perfumes that’s not here in the States. So each of those perfumes would have a special memory for me. Usually, it’s a flirty one.
Ladies, if you have a husband like mine who find it scary when I go perfume shopping because he’s allergic to almost every perfume. Here’s a tip that I found to help me when selecting a new one. When selecting your next new scent look for a perfume that is more spicy and woodsy in scent.
Here are my favorite new scents I want you to check out and now you can begin your own stories.

OMG, can you believe it? The day has following come. Entitled Beauty online store is Now Open for business. It took us 1 year to plan with many days testing out colors, coming up with names, and just having fun creating Entitled Beauty. Being an entrepreneur is not an easy one. With both of us working hard at our regular jobs we first started with Makeup And Martini’s NYC doing makeup review videos. With the success of Makeup And Martini’s NYC we are now consider a Vlogger. But for us makeup junkies we wanted more, we wanted our own makeup line. We’re just so excited that we finally did it. We are starting with 10 highly pigmented perfectly matte lip colors that has 3x the pigments then most.
All of you bloggers will appreciate that us beauty influencers are proud to say we are now owners of a makeup line called Entitled Beauty. We both wanted a signature color to call our own. So Johnny and I worked hard at creating a shade that we would personally rock on our lips. Johnny color is a beautiful pink called Venice and I chose a flirty violet purple shade called Orchid.

Another big day to add to my list of special accomplishments in my life. My partner-in-crime Johnny Lumoa and I are heading down to Danbury City Hall Permit Center to finish up the last of the 2 important paperwork we needed for Entitled Beauty.
So elated about this day because we both have been working hard on Entitled Beauty. Starting a business is such a special moment. Yes, I’ve done it before in New Orleans but today I’m still excited about our baby Entitled Beauty. Having Johnny, someone who believes in me and my love for makeup standing next to me as a business partner I know we will be successful. I wish I knew how to do a back flip but just look at our smiles that should say it all.
