Heading to Los Angeles and I couldn’t be more excited, warm weather and chill energy. Like music group Tony Toni Tone sang, “It Never Rains In Southern California”. This will be my 10th year working The NBA All Star Weekend and my 2nd year being the HEAD OF HAIR & MAKEUP DEPARTMENT. So many reasons why I’m so anxious this year; My team and I will be using Entitled Beauty cosmetics on the talent and dancers. I have an old girlfriend, Jessica Deben working on the team with me. I’m going to see my little sister Star this weekend. 10 years of working with the NBA Team I get to see everyone, their my friends in my heart and lastly I’ll have warm weather for 5 days and 4 nights. Honey, I don’t know how to act to getting out of this cold weather up here in Connecticut. My body will catch a break, my lupus hate winter, it slows me down.
I was excited to see that Jetblue was showing “The Wizard Of Lies“, I have been wanting to see this movie since it came out in May of last year. I’m so curious about how Bernie Madoff, pulled off this Ponzi scheme robbing his peers of $65 billion. Both, Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer did an amazing job. Definitely a movie worth watching especially if you love films about Wall Street.
I made it, I made it to my hotel, The NoMad Hotel Los Angeles. I’m not going to say nada about this glamxurious hotel. I’m going to let the videos and the pictures speak for me. This should be my residence when I return to LA. Yes, I’m flirting with moving to LA because the cold weather is literally killing me.
Getting some work done by filling out gift cards to everyone that will get a Entitled Beauty cosmetics lipstick. These are going in the NBA goodie bags and I have to hurry to write them because Jeff is about to deliver the bags.
Made it to the Staples Center, The Microsoft Center and the Convention Center. Had to set up the hair & makeup room and learn how to get around the tunnels. Grabbed a quick snack from my room since I haven’t eaten since yesterday. Good ol Funyuns and a Mountain Dew did the trick. When headed back to the hotel I shared a ride with Marion & Willie (he’s the man).
Still more Entitled Beauty work to get done and more bags to fill, these last four was for; Fergie, Kevin Hart wife, Andra Day, and Queen Latifah. While in the production office I grabbed a small snack, couldn’t resist.
Now that I’m off, I was craving fish tacos and I found Chicas Tacos, one block away from the hotel. So, I walked over there for dinner and order 3 fish tacos and a Mexican street corn spread with sour cream on top. Ok, can I say DELICIOUS!!!!
Now it’s time for some ME TIME. I been waiting all day to get myself in this wonderful tub. A glass of rose champagne and silence is all this girl need.
After I brushed up with Terra & Co Charcoal Toothpaste and flossed with their charcoal dental floss, I was off to bed. Tomorrow is the first day of NBA All Star Weekend and I want to get at least 8hrs of sleep cuz after tomorrow I won’t sleep until Tuesday.
