Everyone is concern for Chris Rock and what this did to the Oscar’s on Sunday night. Let me get this out the way, violence shouldn’t be on TV but we see it in TV shows, on movies and its happening in real life. 😂😂😂 I’m not here for Will & Chris. I’m here to check on one person in that’s the real victim.
How is Jada handling everything?! So many of our peers struggle with depression and other mental issues. After Sunday night I’m wondering the same about Jada. Because she has an auto immune disease she can’t be stressing because it can lead to a flare up. I know about that very well. So while everyone is laughing and talking BS, I hope they can find it in their heart to stop talking negative about her and pray that she’s healing.❤️🩹
When female producer Elizabeth reached out to me about today’s assignment I said yes because I am always excited to work with a female producer, a talented one at that. Then when she shared that the location would be at Valley Of The Temples Memorial Park I was excited because it’s one of the many beautiful places here in Hawaii. Not only is it a gorgeous cemetery but they have the The Byodo-In Temple, it’s a non-denominational Buddhist to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii. Everywhere on the park is a beautiful view that you would not mind spending hours on location here.
Like any assignment call time is early and we wrapped early. My day started at 5am and ended at 12 noon. It was a very small crew and we all stayed safe and masked except for when Jeff had to speak on camera. It feels good to being on set again. It wasn’t a big production but because of the pandemic we have to still be careful. For me I’m very picky about doing makeup and the type of clients that I work with. For now, it’s only production companies because everyone stays safe when not working.
If you coming to Hawaii to film or speak at an event in you need makeup, definitely look me up.
Listen to the most recent episode of my podcast: Why Y’all Really Mad About Erika “Pat The Puss” Jayne from The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills? Would love for you to chime in after listening to my podcast. Share how you feel and what do you think will happen with Erika Jayne. Will Bravo keep her on the show, will she get endorsements, will she go to jail?
Many know me from just doing makeup & hair but before this glam world I was in the music business with Bad Boy Entertainment, Arista Records and Tommy Boy Records.
Black Rob was one of my talents that I worked very closely with. He was the definition of a New York street guy but he was sweet, he was respectful, he had a great sense of humor and he loved his brown liquor. 😂 😂
One of my special memories was giving him a WHOA cake at House Of Blues in New Orleans. He had just finished performing his single WHOA, had the place jumping. And I wanted to do something special for him on stage. You know something he wouldn’t except. In that touched him you know. 😢 I have so many other great stories that I will always remember. 💔😢 Almost my brother in law. Thanks for adding New Orleans on “WHOA” it was everything to ME!!! 🙏🏾
Hey Guys Hey….it’s your girl Brandy and my favorite guy Anicio. This is our first episode of Black Tie Stiletto and we decided that our first podcast should be about something we enjoy watching together (MTV The Challenge Double Agents) and sometimes with our 28 year old daughter and 23 year old son, on Zoom. Because the kids are on the mainland we can’t always watch it together due to the time zone.
We been fans of MTV The Real World since it first aired in 1992 and we watched every show since then. We laugh, we cried, we screamed at the TV like we know these people. So, it was only right to make this our first podcast.
Thanks for giving us about 20 mins of your life to listen to us run our mouth and give our opinions. I’m sure you’ll find out who’s our favorite. Join in, leave us comments, and give us your feedback since we giving ours.
Shout Out to our daughter for providing us with music for the podcast. The music is HOT right?!!!
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.
Hunty!!!! Let me tell you about this Eucalyptus Shower. It’s the best self care thing you can do during the pandemic. It will take you to a place of peace and relaxtion. The best way to treat yourself after a long drama day at work especially if you have to deal with these non mask wearing people. Come home pour yourself a nice glass of wine turn on your shower to a temperature of hot and midly warm and just stay in that shower until the water go cold. Another thing you can do with your eucalyptus bundle is put them around the house in a vase. For me, it helps to promote relaxation and because it make for a stunning plant when bundle together. Who need an air puifier when you use the eucalyptus as a plant. In the fragrant is divine, it’s also great for congestions and colds. So a win win indoor plant.
How To Take A Eucalyptus Shower
Gather the branches with the cut ends down.
Clear the stems. Remove leaves from the bottom of each branch so that you have room to tie them together.
Cut string or twine so that it’s approximately 24 inches long. Longer is better; too short and it’ll be difficult to tie and hang on your showerhead.
Wrap the string tightly around the stems. Tie the branches together, right under the leafy part, so that the bare stems are below the twine. You may want to wrap a rubber band around the stems to temporarily hold them together while you secure the string around them.
Use the ends of the string to attach your eucalyptus bouquet to the showerhead or another part of your shower. Make sure to tie it securely.
Position the bouquet so that it is not directly under the water stream.
Replace the bouquet every 3 weeks or until you no longer smell eucalyptus
Because, I have a second X-Large bundle arriving from Self Care Shower I wanted to see where I was going to place it and I decided that it will look great and my lounge room. It’s next to the living room and by the kitchen so the aroma could be smelled if I was in either of the rooms. Little things like this is what makes me happy. I surround myself around things that brings me happiness especially now that I’m home every day. I work from home, I don’t leave the house unless I’m going to a doctor’s appointment or I’m sitting outside on the beach. In lately that’s been rare.
If you’re looking for something that will bring happiness to a love one, definitely look at Self Care Shower. I have gifted my female loved ones with it and my husband who is into self care and working out loves it. After a good workout, coming home to a eucalyptus shower has been very rewarding.
