WorkParty Tour Stopped In New York And We Had A Blast

My Boss Babe, Ilse McDonnell and I from Live, Learn and Luxe It was invited to attend a fun work party that we couldn’t pass up. We both try to attend events where positive women are hosting and sharing tips on how we could better our brand.

Todays event is taking place in New York, it’s a part of the third WorkParty Tour stop hosted by Jaclyn Johnson. Jaclyn has a weekly podcast powered by Create Cultivate and presented by Microsoft 365. The event was held at WeWork Bryant Park and bubbly was served from Chandon and Crispin Cider.

The panel consists of Rebecca Minkoff, Christine Barbaric, Michelle Lee and Olivia PĂ©rez. The ladies shared with us what it’s like to be a BOSS and how they got their seat at the table. One of my favorite quotes came from the awesome Rebecca Minkoff. She said to us entrepreneurs, “To be an entrepreneur in 2018, you have to multi-task like a bitch.”

Microsoft had an interactive booth where we took a 6 question quiz. I was quoted as The Heart and the other two team member you could have been called was The Influencer and The Collaborator.

At the end of the evening, 16 Boss Babes won a Microsoft Surface Pro and I was one of the lucky winners. So if a WorkParty Tour make a stop in your city be sure to attend.

Throwback Thursday, Beauty Influencer Share Blogging Experience

Working on my blog at Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury

When I started my blog Sept 2007 it was because I wanted my family, friends and clients to keep up with me after Hurricane Katrina. Never did I think that others would want to read about my life on my blog, especially doing the horrible time of losing my home and my makeup studio. There have been times when I dropped the ball and wasn’t consistent with my writing because life was busy and I was trying to re-brand myself in my career so I put my writing aside. Plus, I never thought my writing was any good because I write how I speak (bad English…lol). If I knew blogging was going to take off the way that it has I would have been a full time blogger long ago. I didn’t know to keep up with my google analytics and changing over my blog from blogspot to wordpress that I would lose my numbers.

Working with Football Player Reggie Bush

So, I got back into blogging and kept it authentic sharing about me and Inside The Life Of A Makeup Artist. As the makeup industry became popular again, my blog took off again. Everyone wanted to know what was I using on the celebrities at Sundance Film Festival, at The Golden Globes, at NBA All Star Weekend and other major assignments I was working doing makeup.

Wearing Floafers

Readers wanted to know details, what I was wearing, what I was eating, what makeup brush I was using, what skincare I put on clients, what hotel I was staying at. That can sometimes become scary, like when I had a stalker followed me while on a makeup tour. Yep, the police was called and everything. So, I shut down all of my social media platforms out of fear.  But you know me, I was like I won’t let fear stop me ( even though it did…lol),

L'OREAL Paris Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis name Golden Globe Awards
Featured on AOL 

I started back up and my blog took off again. It got to the point where I was featured on AOL as one of 15 awesome people to follow during the Golden Globes. That one feature and features like that are what keeps me going everyday with my blog. Knowing that readers wanted to follow all of my journeys from the good and the bad. I picked up new readers when I started sharing about my health with having Lupus, Lyme, and RA. I picked up new readers when I worked on an MTV Hip Hop show, I picked up new readers when I worked with Covergirl at Ipsy Gen Beauty NYC and just recently I picked up new readers working on the Bruno Mars 24K Magic Concert Special for CBS.

So on this Throwback Thursday, what from your past keeps you motivated? Thanks AOL Editors for selecting me as one of the 15 people to follow for the Golden Globes (…they are coming up again..hint hint wink wink…lol)
