A Family That Shovel Snow Together Play Together

Today is a snow day for myself and my son that is still in high school due to 6 inches snow that we received at 4am here in Connecticut. Since my husband had to still go to work we got up and decided to all participate in shoveling so hubby could get out the driveway. After 2 hours of getting the snow from the front door and driveway someone thought it would be a great idea to have a snow fight. I love these family moments…now it’s time for hot chocolate with marshmallows and a movie.

Photo Shoot: Behind The Scene Pics

Thanks @hjules @smashboxartists @occmakeup & to the FAB Lori Taylor… Here are some fun behind the scene pics from yesterday photo shoot. It’s now 1 day after the blizzard here in New York. My morning started off really funny…Pink Sneakers Production should have capture this on camera, lol. I was trying to cross the street but still not a clear enough path to walk so I tried using my makeup bag to knock down some of the snow…well after swinging my bag a few times I lost my balance in went down. As I felt myself losing my balance I pulled a Mariah Carey and said to myself SHIT!!!…I braced myself to fall cute just in case someone caught me on camera, hahaaaa.
After that madness I headed to midtown, as always I arrived first. Both models were late because they got lost not being from New York. Everything was such a mess in the big city. Anna was a Russian model and Sarah was a German model, these girls knew when to turn on…luved it!!!We also shoot outside so the girls were a trooper in my book. At the end of the day we had a FAB shoot. Enjoyed working with a great team.

Let it Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

I don’t play with mother nature, when they announced a snow storm / blizzard was heading to New York I made sure I was prepared. It’s been over 13 years since I was in a blizzard here in New York. I made sure that I had lots of CARBS & COCKTAILS in my house…of course food, candles and batteries just in case. Plus, I charged my iPhone and my extra charger.
My girlfriend Wendy who lives on Long Island came to visit to keep me company. We had a great girls day…lots of talking, lots of laughing, ate, played with makeup, had a photo shoot, and had cocktails. Wendy arrived around 9:30ish am and left around 5:00 pm. Let me tell you she made it home just in time.
A fun day inside but not so fun for anyone that was stuck outside…
