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.
When a small online business owner finds out that their makeup is being used on Bravo TV Show Actress and TV Personality can you image what that feeling is like? Honolulu Hawaii Makeup Artist, Brandy Gomez-Duplessis and Ohio Estheticians, Johnny Luoma were both thrill that the ladies from The Real Housewives were wearing their makeup from Entitled Beauty Cosmetics. Being an online brand who is competing with so many makeup companies how can they be receiving this blessing. Just recently their makeup was seeing on Dancing With The Stars and previous at The NBA All Star Weekend in 2019 & 2020.
LA Celebrity Makeup Artist, Adam Christopher who works with many celebrities uses Entitled Beauty Cosmetics and his makeup kit. This brand may not be in beauty stores like Sephora and Ulta or department stores but makeup artists are fans of this brand because of the quality and that its highly pigmented. Quality is very important these days and these two beauty industry owners knows exactly what their clients want. This duo is also know for their fun names (Resting Bitch Face, Yes Bitch, OMG, Zaddy, Call Girl) they wanted to have a few iconic pieces like NARS, TOO Faced and Tom Ford. In it’s looking that they are on their way.
Brandy says, one day their makeup will be a household name. Our fun names are catchy but the quality speaks for itself. We don’t have a celebrity endorsing us but we have the makeup artists and customers, our fans who are buying our makeup. They will continue to speak about how great Entitled Beauty Cosmetics really is and eventually their love for us will spill over to their girlfriends, sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers. Our makeup is for everyone Johnny says. We wanted our makeup to be worn by anyone who love makeup. We don’t discriminate, we know what that is like.
If you’re looking for something this holiday for a makeup lover definitely think of Entitled Beauty Cosmetics. Small business owners need us to stay afloat.
As you know my partner and I love naming our products for our makeup line Entitled Beauty Cosmetics. Because I’m in Hawaii and he’s in Ohio, we FaceTime with each other to meet about names for upcoming makeup items that we’re working on. When we came up with our All Nighter Liquid Lipsticks the song “Savage” by Meg Thee Stallion wasn’t out yet and we came up with the name “Bougie” and “Savage” not knowing that this fabulous young lady will one day have this popular song. It’s so funny that the two shades are lipsticks colors that we could see Meg Thee Stallion actually wearing.
Entitled Beauty Cosmetics All Nighter Liquid Lipsticks are Vibrant, Bold and Luxuriously Soft Matte. Mineral based with 3x the pigment vs. any other liquid lipstick out there today! Entitled Beauty’s liquid lipstick goes on smooth, dries quickly, has a matte finish and is extremely long wearing!
So if you’re a fan of Megan The Stallion do you think Hot Girl Meg would rock these two lipstick shades? Would You? Hope you will give our products a try and let us know if you love wearing Entitled Beauty All Nighter Liquid Lipsticks.

Alright guys, I have a question for you. Do you just call your friends/associates at anytime on FaceTime or SKYPE?
With majority of the world being LAID OFF or FURLOUGH we’re home and available to talk all day and night. No more excuses of I’M BUSY or I’M WORKING. You can barely get away with I was busy…yeah right, busy wiping down the food you just got from the store. So, friends and associates think it’s ok to just randomly FaceTime since SKYPE and Zoom video conferencing is all the rave.
But, I don’t agree with that. I don’t know if it’s just that I’m old school and we don’t play that but you should never FaceTime a person without giving them heads up. I’m like this with people who just randomly pop up and knocking on my door. I have left many people outside knocking and ringing my bell because they just showed up and then showed up with an entourage, OH HELL NO!!!
I strongly feel the same way with Face timing me. Just because you see my light on in Facebook or Instagram that don’t mean I’m wanna talk or better I want to Facetime with anyone right now.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love my friends and like my associates, but you have to still be respectful. I might not be in a good mood, might be having personal things going on in my home, or better I might be having couple time, shit. Yes, I want to see your faces and I want to love on you but it’s at my TIME!
If you know me, then you know I have a lot of rules.If we are talking on the phone, I want ALL OF YOUR ATTENTION. I don’t want to see your cute kids, your cats or dogs, I don’t want to say Hi to whomever is at your house. Another rule of mine is, don’t you dare call me and then you take your phone with you while you go to the bathroom. Cuz, I’m now hanging up and you’re no longer able to FaceTime with me ever. #PERIOD
The only thing I wanna see in your surroundings is a bottle of bubbly’s that’s it.
So, I would love to know your FaceTime Phone Etiquette.
She get it from her mama…that’s what they say, right?! Is it ok for preteen girls to get plastic surgery to be like their mothers who have also gotten plastic surgery? Is it ok for mothers to put their insecurities on their daughters? Encouraging their daughters to go under the knife to help enhance their image.
On “Just Girlfriends” video podcast, we talk a lot about TV Personality Kim Zolciak Biermann and her daughters Ariana and Brielle having plastic surgery and looking like there mom.
You might be surprised to hear what the ladies of Just Girlfriends have to say. Chime in and let us know what you think on this topic. We will love to hear from you.
Today was a little windy here in Hawaii and we had reservations to attend Paradise Cove Luau in Ko’Olina. Since it’s been hard to schedule an evening out with all of our crazy work and school schedule we decided to still go and see this beautiful 12 oceanfront acres establishment.
The evening was filled with lots of drinking, activities, games, Hawaiian music dance and food. Ended with a beautiful sunset that can be seen throughout the acres. Here are pics of a great evening, I’m glad that we decided to still go and I’m glad I was smart enough to bring a jacket…sorry lungs (bronchitis).
