It’s always a concert or production for me when I’m getting ready. Plus, I just like to entertain myself. I’m a hair flip girl, y’all know how I do 😂 so I need L’Oreal Paris to hold me down. And Queen Janet Jackson would be so proud 🤙🏾🌸🌺
Do y’all remember I use to be a L’Oreal Pro Makeup Artist so I always used L’Oreal hair products. Elnett was my go to hairspray. OMG, the scent, it should be a candle 😂

If you ever been to my home you have seen lots of Buddha’s in my home as well as a very large Buddha outside my home. For many years I have followed the being of the Buddha’s meaning of living my life.
Buddha’ means ‘Awakened One’, someone who has awakened from the sleep of ignorance and sees things as they really are. Buddha has great compassion which is completely impartial, embracing all living beings without discrimination.
A Buddha’s compassion, wisdom, and power are completely beyond conception. I also love the way the Buddha handle Karma, Attitude, Self Teachings, and Peace. If you’re looking to make changes within yourself take some time to read on Buddha’s.
I am ready for 2022! All of my Chakras are balanced. My mind is not clutter, my energy is strong and is fully tune into my body and mind. Leave everything 2021 behind and start fresh. When you hold onto things that’s not positive your not allowing to receive your new blessings.
It’s Libra Season and the month of October is mine. 51 years ago I was born on October 13th. I’ve done so many amazing parties for myself when I was in my 20’s, 30’s and 40’s that this year I plan to keep it simple and relaxing here in Hawaii. I just wanted the beach, a cabana and lots of Citrus Frose from the Beach House Roy Yamaguchi’s Restaurant in Turtle Bay Resort. But of course I started my morning with a few glasses of mimosas.
Do you feel you’re the sign you were born under. For me, I’m a TRUE LIBRA. They can put my face under LIBRA, I hate drama, I hate negative, mean, and angry people. I remember growing up my mom use to always tell me that I love the underdog. I am very outspoken and I don’t have a problem checking a person for someone not being treated fair. That I always want the world to be peaceful and that I live in a fantasy world. Maybe that’s why I live in Hawaii. It’s the closet to living in peace and being around positive people.
I had a great day, but you know what, I have a great day everyday. Come on, I live in Hawaii. Living in paradise on a beautiful island is everything you think it is. I had over 4 of those drinks, I ate well and the weather and breeze was perfect that I took one of those good good naps. I slept good that my makeup smeared. (LMAO). I find that I always get the best sleep on the beach, what about you?
Since I’ve became an empty nester during the pandemic I needed something to love on and to care for so I started buying a variety of plants and propagating them. It took a few weeks to a month to learn what they like, how much light and water they needed. Each plant is like a child, they definitely have their on personality. So, once I learned that, I had a routine of how to care for my new babies. Nothing like seeing a new leaf bloom and seeing them getting taller and fuller. I LOVE Fiddle Leaf Figs Trees, Monstera, Philodendron, ZZ Plants, and Aloe Vera plants.
I keep my babies cleaning and their leaves shiny by using Miracle Gro Leaf Shine every 2 weeks on them. I usually clean them on Sundays because I’m off and I can take my time lovin on them. I use a soft white towel and I spray directly on the leaf and gently wipe. I find this product not only keeps my babies pretty but it helps with their growth and healthy large leaves. If you’re heavy handed spray on the towel a good amount in then wipe the leaf so you don’t spill any on the floor or carpet.
Are you looking for a new highlighter that gives a beautiful and radiant glow? Well, I have one just for you. It’s from my makeup line, Entitled Beauty Cosmetics. It’s my favorite “Resting Bitch Face” and I paired it with “Pretentious” to warm up my skin. When I created “Resting Bitch Face” I first wanted it to have a name that would be iconic and I wanted it to be my Best Seller. I knew it would be an item that I would wear everyday and I wanted the color to brighten my face on my full cheeks. Because, I smile a lot I knew on my cheeks you would see that glow.
Below you will find the highlighters & lipsticks colors that I have on. On my lips is another favorite from my All Nighter lip collection called, Yes Bitch” and “Gurl Bye” from the metallic collection. With “Yes Bitch” when I finally was able to apply it on at the lab, the first thing that came out my mouth after checking myself out was “YES BITCH” and I knew that was going to be the name. Because when my Entitled Babe also put it on they were going to say the exact same thing (lmao). So, that’s how I come about with naming my items.
