My Allergy Testing Round 2

I’m back for round 2 of my allergy testing. Everyone asked me if it hurt last time but it didn’t. It just feel like someone is taking a writing pen in sticking me in my back. The only thing that bothered me was that the room was freezing, So after 2 visits guess what, I’m not allergic to anything. My lupus be playing jokes on my bodies making it mock like I had allergies so I was miserable for a few months, When it happens again I don’t have to take allergy meds because it won’t stop it. I’m just upset that I waste so much money…No comments on my cheesy tattoo, lol!!!

A Glam Day In Harlem Doing Makeup On The Producers Of Harlem On My Plate

Before kicking off my day doing makeup on 2 fabulous female producers in New York City I needed my me time. Sitting out back on my deck in Connecticut enjoying my Teavana tea and zen like ambiance of the exotic trees, plants and lake always make me feel like I’m a luxury resort spa. Since mornings is not my favorite time of the day because of my lupus I always need a minute to unwind and loosen up my joints. A little mediation, 10 pills and time with the nature does my body good. Since I didn’t have to be in New York until 3pm I had more than enough time to pamper myself. I’m so excited about tonight event. My clients will be featuring their first featured film, a documentary called “Harlem On My Plate”.
