I was the Queen of Red Bull

Damn I miss that GIRL!!!! Right about now I would be LIT as the young kids say. My health was good, NO LUPUS, LYME, RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS, ENLARGED HEART, and ASTHMA. Today it’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans and I would be jumping on  the barricades screaming for beads & coconuts. Drinking daiquiri’s and vodka straight out the bottle. See, ya didn’t know that side of Brandy. If you think I hustle hard now, baby my hustle game was on 100 before my health issues. Mardi Gras was my favorite holiday because I’m always straight business all year long. But on Mardi Gras Day, it was that one day I could just let loose with my family and friends on Fat Tuesday. So New Orleans, Happy Mardi Gras and Turn Up for me!  We should all start drinking now, don’t wait for Happy Hour.

So here are so funny pics of me from 2009-2011 just enjoying life.

How Do You Spend Your Christmas Eve

Being that my family is from Honduras we celebrated on Christmas Eve. But as I got older I changed it up just a little. So tonight we will eat, drink a lot and open a small gift.

Then on Christmas morning I get up bake cranberry muffins, serve champagne and we open the majority of the gifts. Later I’ll put dinner on but nothing to big, drink, eat dessert and watch 2 movies.

What are you doing for Christmas Eve?

Connecticut Bloggers “Holiday Soiree” At Flora Restaurant

img_6165-2Tonight I’m headed out to Connecticut Bloggers Collective also known as Connecticut Bloggers Babes, Holiday Soiree bash. I’m just so elated that Connecticut have a great group for bloggers from all over the state. When I first moved to Connecticut one of the first thing I did was look on the internet to see if there was any blogging group. I actually found one and then later discovered Connecticut Bloggers Collective. In August of this year I went to their first brunch for the bloggers in Connecticut and about 25 bloggers showed up. Tonight, about 100 bloggers turned up and out at FLORA Plant Food + Drink. Besides attending the event, we at Entitled Beauty was also one of the sponsors for the VIP goodie bag. My date for the evening was Connecticut Lifestyle Blogger Pam Rosario with PR*Love *Style* Life.

 

 

It’s always nice to attend events that catered to bloggers because we can just be us and not worry about pulling out cameras for everything. Yes, we do live in the moment we just have an eye to live in the moment faster and then we capture it to share with you all. My table crew for the evening was Pam from PR*Love*Style*Life, Christine from Vigor And Vogue Blog and Gem with Food Drinks Life. Later cousin Ilse with Live Learn Luxe It will join us, she was stuck in that horrible traffic.

 

First thing first, cocktails please…I ordered the Hibiscus Cosmo and the girls all ordered the Apple Cider Sangria.  My drink was ok so later I ordered my signature a glass of prosecco.

 

I was a little worried at first because I saw the word vegan when I looked up the restaurant because I don’t eat healthy. I was like I’m not going to find anything that I would want to eat. But I found 2 dishes that I event went back for seconds. It was the COD and the fried cauliflower. Can I just tell  how delicious both dishes was. So if you see this on their menu GET IT!

 

Now our table is complete. Ilse finally arrived you know we’re always together, Nicole from Nicole In Colour and PT Tran from Phasion Therapy.

Entitled Beauty Makeup Photo Shoot At Hotel Zero Degrees in Connecticut

img_5538What a dream come true when 21 years of working in the beauty and entertainment industry being on set for numerous photo shoot. Sometimes I would daydream and think that one day I would be my own Owner and Creative Director for my makeup line. I have an eye and ears for greatness and I just had to wait my turn when GOD said it’s your time. I have always believed that you can’t rush it, success…it takes time and when it’s your turn it will happen effortlessly. And that is what happened with Entitled Beauty makeup line. I’m just relaxed and letting everything fall into place. Today my dream came through on set at Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury. We didn’t have all 12 of the lip colors, guess what they arrived 2 days after the shoot. And we also now have our new collagen lip glosses but again they were held up but the show must go on right. Our girls came through, Mindy a lifestyle blogger with Finding Silver Linings and model Lauren gave us the energy we needed to capture the looks we wanted. Come take a peek to see what Johnny and myself is up.

Johnny looked amazing on set rockin his COACH scarf

Entitled Beauty Holiday Look I’m obsessed with…thanks Lauren

Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury is a perfect place to call home when your away from home. I stayed over the day before the shoot in the Executive Suite to get everything organized so that our day would go smooth. The staff at Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury was so very helpful with all of my needs. They treated me like I was a VIP guest because they were so swift on anything I asked for. To keep my body up I was able to get 24/7 access to hot tea, yes there is Starbucks coffee but I’m not a coffee drinker. I was also able to get all of my emails and look at all of our pics on their high tech computer, luv that they have high speed WiFi in their business center. A perfect setup for any business owner and lifestyle blogger like myself. One of my 2018 goals

Stop by Entitled Beauty Instagram page to see all of the lavish pics we took.

Influencers Fun Day Of Getting Content For Their Blog

img_3903

Yesterday photo shoot with Lifestyle Blogger Ilse was done on location at Stamford Town Center.  Today we both needed to get new content for our social media pages so I took a trip out to Stamford in Ilse neck of the woods. Because I was doing a sponsor post I needed pics of me wearing the the foam loafers that I was wearing from Floafers and Ilse needed new casual pics for her blog. I selected a black pair of the loafers so that I can wear them when I’m working at the salon, on set, any assignment that I would be on my feet for long hours. I figured black would go well with my all black wardrobe. I can honestly say I LOVE THEM! I’m not a CROCS shoe girl because I didn’t like the slip-on and the shoes was not the most stylish looking. I always felt like I was going to fall in them. I need support when I’m working. The last thing I need to worry about is falling. I’m not sure why but my feet didn’t do well in them. I would swell up so so bad in the CROCS. So, it was a relief to see that I didn’t have any problems wearing Floafers.

Let me tell you guys about these foam loafers because I’m now obsessed. Not only are the shoes very stylish and comfortable the shoes are; lightweight, breathable, scuff proof, that have sectional traction so you won’t slip on wet surfaces, it’s made out of antimicrobial foam so they will protect you from odor, mildew, and mold. And the price is easy on the wallet. These loafers are great for anyone that is on their feet for long hours. I wore them all day and my feet did not swell up that’s not normal because when I’m on my feet all day my feet is usually swollen. As you all know my battle with lupus I look like elephant man by the end of the day. Well, not yesterday. So if you know of anyone that suffer like I do I recommend a pair of Floafers.

After a hard day of working taking beautiful pictures both Ilse and I was ready for lunch and of course cocktails so I suggested Kona Grill because we both wanted something healthy for lunch. I know I know we both had cocktails but it was Happy Hour so we couldn’t resist the COSMO75 they were DE-LIOUIS!!!!
