Destination Wedding In New Orleans with my Favorite New Jersey Couple

5am at the airport, ready to go to sleep
This wedding was a little different because it was more of a Wedding Anniversary Celebration of 10 years for Susan & Stan. I was booked for the wedding but have been working with Susan and her girlfriends a lot both here in New York & New Orleans. So once Susan shared me with me the date I locked it in my books because I couldn’t miss it this time around. http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js_uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

I arrived in New Orleans on Friday morning met up with Susan to go over the details. So on Friday I enjoyed my time in New Orleans before turning in early. Saturday was definitely a magical day, I turned my room at the W Hotel French Quarter into my mini makeup room. Susan, Kecia and Miss Baley came up to get ready then took the shuttle bus over to Cafe Amelie. This beautiful in lush courtyard was a perfect place for this wonderful ceremony. After the celebration we went over to Kingfish for the after party for more drinks and celebrating.

Labor Day Weekend:FRIDAY

Kicked off the day with the girls by going on our date with MR. VALENTINO to see the movie…the last emperor. We were the first to arrive…actually (BEN) was. We caught up with everything and we laughed and laughed cuz that’s what we do when we are together.

After the movie, which was just amazing and I could have watched it 2 more times…but I will be buying the DVD when the movie comes out. Because we were a little hungry we decided to go eat at Superior Grill on St. Charles Ave in get of course…rita’s.

My first day home I left my charger for my Iphone on set so we stopped at the AT&T store after so I could buy another charger and decided to buy a car charger as well.

Then we pass by the W. Hotel to see all of my buddies. I figured it was a Friday night so everybody should be there. I texted that I was on my way. First stop was the Whiskey Bar. When we arrived it was packed full of men. I completely forgot that it was the Kick Off of Southern Decadence at the W. Hotel. The girls and I enjoyed ourselves Lane gave me a bottle of FIJI water and made me a drink. Not really sure what but it was really good. We went upstairs and in their Great Room was http://www.passportmagazine.com”>Passport Magazine with Fashion Designer http://www.andrewchristian.com”>Andrew Christian fresh off his stint with Bravo’s competition “The Fashion Show”. They were doing the Belvedere’s Maceration Stations from 6-9pm so more drinks were flowin. Caught up with my girls BethAnn and Terri. Was also able to see my buddy Nicole Robinson…luv her!

After the fashion show we left, MISS SASSY headed home and I met up with hubby and my son and we went out to ELMWOOD. Grab some snacks in then headed home.

Wedding Makeup Article


I got a call this morning at 7:52 am, and I jumped up thinking my bride was calling me because I wasn’t at the hotel. You know that maybe I over slept or something. But it was a new bride calling to book me after seeing an article on me in this month Gambit Weekly L’Image Wedding Insert. I was so exhausted that all I can hear was an exciting young girl on the other end who was just going on and on. I was just relived that it wasn’t my bride calling me saying I was a no show. That is something that scare me all the time that one day I am going to be so tired that I will over sleep and not show up to one of my brides wedding.

So of course, I roll over and pull up the Gambit page (laptop next to my side of the bed)and sure enough there’s a picture of me and an interview I did with them some time ago on page 22 and 23. Because, it’s been a minute I completely forgot all about it and my publicist has not called me to tell me anything. I guess she was not informed either.

What a great way to start my SATURDAY…Thanks Gambit for featuring me in L’Image…I love you guys. Off to my bride Scarlet Pollard at the Lowes Hotel.

Checkin In

I checked into the W hotel at 8:01 pm. I am not really tired but just feeling blah. At the airport I purchased $46.81 worth of magazines to read on the plane and finishing reading the rest tonight.

I feel mentally drain I have so much to do back home that I don’t feel creative. I was hoping to have packed up the studio before leaving so I could have closed that chapter but didn’t happen. Celebrity hair stylist Ted Gibson reached out to me so I need to email him tonight. I have to relax and surround myself around things I love so I can get my creative juice flowin. I need to write at least two articles tonight for fashion indie so I can have a head start.

This week is Shontell BDay so I know I will be flying home to celebrate with baby girl.

Ok, let me go getting late and I need to unpack, order food, take a shower in snuggle in this big bed. I brought some candles with me, I do that a lot when I travel I like bringing candles and air freshners. The W hotel is nice so I never have to worry about it smelling.

Night…
