Let’s All Get Lit Because It’s Mardi Gras In New Orleans

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.

Today’s Dr Appointments Wasn’t A Glam One

It’s been a day and I’m so glad it’s over my body need a break. I started first by going to do a CT Scan, then off to do the allergy test on my arms and forearms, then over to the CT Sinus Center, ending my appointment doing a Intravenous (IV) infusion therapy. Unfortunately, I have to do a lot of this often, in 10 days I’ll be repeating everything except the allergy test. At least I didn’t have to give blood this week. A lot of driving around today, I’m just glad to be home. How is your Monday going?

Sunday Is My Day Of Being Fabulous

img_2245Today I’m not doing anything, I’m going to flaunt around the house like I do and just enjoying myself. Since I have no plans on leaving the house I’m going to just relax, snack, drink wine and nap. I have a busy week ahead starting with 3 appointments early tomorrow morning. And one more appointment on Tuesday but that one is going to be easy breeze. I haven’t been having any heart problems and it’s not time to do another EKG so I’ll be out in 10 mins. But as soon as I walk out of tomorrow appointment I cannot wait to take my meds for all these body pains. I was told that I couldn’t take anything for 3 days prior to my Monday appointments so I’m feeling everything so wine is definitely needed until then. How did you spend your Sunday?

Saturday Was Glam But Saturday Night Got Ugly, Auto Immune Problems

A lot of peers always see me when I post pics of myself when I’m doing well but they never understand when I tell them that by the end of the day my body shut down. It’s hard to understand how can someone look amazing then quickly is having a hard time to breathe but it’s my life about 3-4 times a week. I decided to show you how I can go from this img_1931to the videos below. I don’t know if it’s the lupus, the lyme disease, or both but it’s definitely hard on my body. This is why my new lifestyle only allows for me to do one thing and usually work win and takes all my energy that I never have time to party or meet up with girlfriends after work. Not everyone understands and it hurts but when I give in I know I will have it bad for 2-3 days. I usually don’t like to push myself because I never won’t to be able to show up for work. So if you know anyone with an auto-immune or invisible illness please be patience with them.

Getting A Connecticut Mom Cabaret Ready

I started my morning by getting the fabulous Ridgefield Connecticut mom and cabaret singer makeup ready at her home for her performance. Wendy will be opening for Metro Star winner David Baida at the Metropolitan Room in New York. On Friday, April 28th she will be performing her highly acclaimed new solo show, New SCHERL In Town and I am so elated about doing her makeup again for this big night. I love being a part of her glam team seeing Wendy get all glamxurious, she really enjoys it. Some clients will tell me they want something natural with their makeup for an evening look but Wendy love a good beat face. So on Friday night I will make a few changes to the makeup look I gave her today because it’s her opening night. The other half of the glam team who did Wendy’s blowout was done by hairstylist Maghen Cook of MC Hair Designs in Ridgefield, CT.

If you love going to a good cabaret, the glitz and glamour with sultry music, make it a date night in come see The New SCHERL In Town on Friday night in New York. Here are the beauty products I used on Wendy minus the Ardell “demi wispies” lashes.
