HGTV Magazine Block Party In New York

img_9558Bloggers, if I can share with you anything it’s push yourself everyday if you want to your blog to be successful. I’ve been there with abandoning my blog because of everyday life just took precedence. When I was named “15 Awesome People To Follow During The Golden Globe” by AOL that really got me going. When I changed over to WordPress in 2015 I lost my followers and how to do my SEO that has been so discouraging. But at yesterday HGTV Magazine Block Party the panel got me fired up in a good way. I’m on the right track with my blog because it’s authentic, my blog is about me my life as a Celebrity Makeup Artist and Beauty Expert. The tips and advice that was given by the panel really helped a lot. I just have to have someone look at my SEO because I didn’t correctly do it so I’m losing money and not getting the bookings that I should be.

It was a rainy day but we didn’t want to miss this event for anything so we both commuted and this rain storm because we wanted to get some blogging feeding.

KKW Beauty Vs. Wet n Wild Makeup Review

img_5315

Makeup and Martinis is back for Season 2, Summer 2018. I’m so excited to be back filming with Johnny, it’s always so much fun when we get together. I don’t know how we ever complete these videos because we giggle like high schools girls the entire time.

So today’s video is about Prestige makeup brands verse Drugstore makeup brands. The contenders were, KKW Beauty vs Wet n Wild. Johnny was my model like always and the two items we tried out were; concealer and powder. I’m a a fan of both brands, growing up with Wet n Wild. I use to think I was fly wearing Wet n Wild hot pink magenta lipstick. And everyone know how obsessed I am with the gorgeous Kim Kardashian so of course I love KKW Beauty. So this was definitely a hard one for me to do. Watch the entire video and see who I selected.

Let’s see if you can tell the difference, be honest and let me know your thoughts.

How Do You Unwind After A Productive Week

img_3211-2

WOW! What a week filled with so many great blessings. For me, when I say blessings it doesn’t always mean making money. For me, it means my life was fulfilled with activities that makes me happy, that fed me with things that I enjoy doing.

Doing what I love, by now you know it’s makeup, teaching makeup with my Beauty Blueprint company, meeting about my makeup company Entitled Beauty, creating content for my social media platforms, getting things crossed of my list for the upcoming Danbury Fashion Week while still being superwoman at home as a great wife and mother.

Today, is a beautiful Sunday. Here in Candlewood Lake it’s so peaceful. All I hear are birds singing and the humming sounds from people riding on their golf carts. I’m home alone, sitting outside on the deck enjoying my bottle of white wine from Josh Cellars. It’s nice to not be on a schedule for a few hours just having a lazy relaxing day doing nothing. Maybe I’ll take a nap outside and just enjoy this lovely breeze.

So, how do you unwind on your off days?
