Hawaii Lifestyle Blogger Ask What’s The Correct FaceTime Etiquette

img_0685Alright 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Item Do You Get Excited About Scoring During The Coronavirus Pandemic

Eimg_0401very time my husband or my son leaves our beach house to go to the store I’m always reminding them to check for LYSOLDisinfecting Wipes, Sprays or any kind of cleaning products they can find.

During the pandemic besides lots of alcohol, and David’s sunflower seeds, LYSOL cleaning products is always on my list.

Because of my health (Lupus, RA, Asthma and Hypertension) I don’t leave the house. I have been in this house now for 45 days and I don’t plan to leave until it’s safe. I don’t even chance walking to the beach, nada. I get my fresh air by having the Lanai doors open while I’m sitting on the living room sofa.

So, when the guys come home they strip in the laundry room, shoes off and clothes in the wash, then they dash off upstairs. And like a crazy woman, I follow wiping down anything that they could have touched along the way. I probably have the cleanest floors in the world because I also wipe them down daily with my LYSOL wipes. I go through these wipes because I’m so afraid of bringing germs in the house.

When they come back from the store, I take one item at at time and I’m wiping down each box, or meat, or bags before it goes in my refrigerator or my kitchen cabinet. Here in Hawaii we bring our own bags so I spray them down with Lysol and let them air dry in the laundry room. Before being quarantine, I kept a container of Lysol in my car, in the kitchen, in the laundry room and each bathroom has a container. I was always a person that was scared of getting any virus, again because of my health, so I’m use to living in a bubble. Now…it’s out of control. I find myself still picking up germs from my family and I have many horrible flare up’s and have been using Albuterol more now since then ever. So, I can never run out of LYSOL, this is why it’s a big deal for me to always have.

What do you get excited about scoring from the store?

How I Got Miss Hawaii USA Makeup Ready For A Night Out In Honolulu

 

img_5289Strutting in and slow-motion walks this breathtaking beauty carrying a see-thru case that’s holding something fantastic because I can see Swarovski Crystal peeking through and a #iDIE for blinged out phone case. Whom ever this beauty is, I’m obsessed and knew she had to be coming to see me.

I was correct, it was Miss Hawaii USA,Samantha Leyland who had a  3:30pm makeup appointment with me at Bloomingdale’s in Ala Moana Center. Samantha had an engagement with Modern Luxury Hawaii Magazine and BMW for the Hawai’i International Film Festival. 

 

The makeup I used was all from Giorgio Armani Beauty. She’s a fan of Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and I knew her skin would look radiant in it. I wanted Samantha’s skin to be flawless and luminous at the event and to last all evening for all of the pics that she would be taking.

On Samantha’s eyes, I selected Eyes To Kill Stellar Eye shadow and Eyes To Kill Quattro Eye shadow. I wanted tonight’s makeup look to focus only on her eyes. Because she’s a beautiful girl I didn’t want her makeup to compete with her.

Samantha has the best cheekbones ever so I flirted with them just a little. I didn’t go overboard with bringing them out since she really have great cheekbones. For her brows I used a crayon brow pencil and I gave them an effortless shape just enough to bring attention to her eyes. On her lip, I lined her entire lip with a lip pencil then I filled them in with a liquid lipstick and topped her lips off with a lacquer gloss.

Last touch was a little highlight on those cheekbones for a natural glow on her face when she walked the red carpet.

Apple News Picked Up My Beauty Article On How Beauty Is Enhanced By Plant Based Food

img_9331Earlier this summer I written a beauty article about food for a new online magazine called SPIRALIZED.

I worked with the Editor In Chief, Gina Keatley numerous times doing hair and makeup for her videos and photoshoots. So when she asked me if I would be interested in writing about the topic of food, makeup and clothing I thought it would make for fun content.

Little did I know that later this summer the article would get picked up by Apple News. I’m not a journalist I’m just a woman who love to write on her blog about beauty, skincare, hair, and my crazy life. So when Gina reached out to me that my article was picked up by Apple News, you can only imagine how taken away I was about this great news.

I’m going to continue to bring you all quality and fun content on my blog as well as a contributor. Below you will find the original article on SPIRALIZED page 11-13. I hope you enjoy it!

My First 4th Of July In Oahu Hawaii

img_6381I’m so excited about celebrating my first holiday here in Hawaii. At the same time it’s my first holiday without my oldest daughter. It’s normally 4 of us and today it’s only 3 of us. My 27 year old had decided to stay back in Connecticut so it’s going to be a little hard to not have her with us.

The family all agreed that we wanted to eat seafood today so earlier during the week I started looking around and asking co-workers about where I could buy seafood on the island at a reasonable price. Seafood is definitely our go to summer menu during the summer holidays.

I found a few places and compared prices before making a decision and finalizing the menu. I ended up buying the 3 packs of snow crabs clusters from Don Quijote and 15lbs of crawfish from Seafood City and a case of Corona’s beer and 3 red bags of potatoes from Safeway.

I didn’t miss a beat with my seasoning, everything came out so so good. We were in that house sucking heads and crab legs. Spicy juice was just dripping down our arms and we didn’t care. Once we were able to move from all that good eating we made our way down to the beach to enjoy the festivities and to watch all of the fireworks.

d'lish 4th menu

 

D’lish 4th Of July menu was fantastic, those ladies never disappoint me. So, I was very excited to check out their menu today. Music was provided by DJ Dougie and Stevie Steve throughout the day. Lots of fun competitions and American ninja warrior style games started around 2pm.

The fireworks started at 9pm and we managed to catch a lot of them from different directions on the property. Thanks Kapilina Beach Homes for a safe and fun evening.

So, how was your 4th of July?

So Glad The Rain Storm In Oahu Hawaii Is Over

img_5784The torrential  rain storm is over here in Oahu, Hawaii and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m sure all the beautiful trees needed it but I didn’t. I need the warm weather and the beautiful beach Hawaii is known for. Not some crazy ass rain that triggered this widespread flooding, scary thunderstorms and lighting that injured 3 people. Plus, all the rain did was leave us in Ewa Beach without power for 2 days. That’s not cute at all.

So tonight I’m going to sleep real good. I was worried that I was going to oversleep both days. I kept waking up to check my phone. Yes, I did set my alarm but I didn’t feel comfortable to realized on my phone alarm due to the fact that it had a very low battery. I also plan to love on my hair, wash and condition it real good, then pin curl and blow dry my hair so on Saturday for the “Shop & Play” at The Cosmetics Company Store I will look fabulous.

What kind of summer weather are you having?

Freelance Makeup Assignment Today With United Airlines In Hawaii

 

 

 

img_3853-2Aloha 🤙🏾🌺🌸

I’m so elated about today because I was hired to do a photoshoot with United Airlines at Honolulu International Airport. Tomorrow makes 1 week that my family and I moved to Hawaii and I’m already getting freelance bookings to do makeup and hair here. So that makes me happy that my new home will be using my makeup and hair services

The company that called me  to book me for this assignment has offices in LA, NY, DC, and Chicago. So maybe someone from the one of the offices saw my my tweets or instagram post because I haven’t done any major marketing about my move. However they found me, I’m definitely grateful. I love working and doing makeup brings me so much happiness. Living in paradise and doing what I love makes me a very blessed woman.

My call time was at 8:15am but you know I’m always early so I arrived at 7:30am and I emailed my contact person at 8am. I knew that I would have to get a guest pass to enter and go through security so I wanted to make sure I gave myself enough time to do that.

What a great welcomed I received when the contact person from United Airlines came to get me from the counter. Hugs and kisses, that was so sweet and a beautiful way to be welcome. She brought me over to the ticket counter to get a pass then escorted me through security. They asked me to bring very minimal items because of going through TSA. But you know me I’m always an over packer. The only thing I didn’t bring was my L’OREAL Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray. I didn’t have any of my mini’s on me I only had one regular size and I knew that wouldn’t get through.

They had me set up in the beautiful United Airlines Lounge. The shoot was only 2 hours with one male talent, United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz. Everything went so effortlessly the company that booked me and the United Airlines staff were also so chill and professional. While the shoot was going on I sat back in read Modern Luxury Hawaii magazine. Perfect magazine to learn about all the luxurious stores and products that’s here in Hawaii.

They got the talent In & Out swiftly. Overall it was a very easy assignment and I’m grateful and blessed that I was called.
