Thanksgiving with fam can be stressful!

Herro.
Just got home from Thanksgiving dinner at moms house. Holidays can be 1 of 2 things. Either really stressful or just the happiest time of the year. I think last year was one of the first years that I experienced stress. It was no fun at all. And then sometimes you think to yourself, "Was I adopted? How am I related to any of these people?" The differences that you and your family members share are sooooo different, but yet they are your blood. Its a little nuts to me. Like other families across the world, mine is split. My parents aren't together, so it splits the day in half and becomes a stress in its own. I actually prefer to just stay home with my lil ones, but I want the children to be around family.

I may be just venting. But I thought where else can I talk about it other than to a bunch of strangers and/or a bunch of reader who could possibly see where I'm coming from.

Nonetheless, I love my family. But I love that I have my very own sometimes and I like to do my own thing...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Beats of an MC.


Herro.
I am so excited to start a "series" if you will.... Vlogs of everyday life. Sorta. I do not video EVERYTHING. Ya know, stuff that is my time and my personal space. I am just taking on this little project. I think its cool to share me. I was really inspired by ItsJudytime (my dear friend) to vlog. Hers are a little more intense, which I giver her mad props for being so dedicated. I on the other hand cannot be so dedicated since I do have other priorities.
I will be numbering these vlogs so that you can go in order if you do chose to keep up with them! Love you guys!

VEGAS: Redbull DJ BATTLE

Herro.

This post might be a little late, but this event was about a week or 2 ago. I was invited to go by my new found friend, Angela. (@imwiththedeejay) Angela travels along side her soon to be hubby, DJ Vice, which was one of the judges for this Dj Battle. Although it was really long, the girls and I rocked sneakers and some hoodies! What a relax night. No heels, no form fitting dresses. Couldn't get any better.
To top off the night, Talib Kweli performed and I just was in AW. He didn't do HOT THING, but oh well. He was still dope.
Enjoy my few pics!

Documentaries make me happy.

HERRO.



I can't help but to have this song on repeat. It's such a feel good song! I have it playing right now as I'm cooking dinner. I'm making this cabbage soup that I have been eating at this Thai spot. It probably won't be the same, but similar. I figured it would be nice to have a big pot of soup in the fridge for the week! Kids are getting on their pajamas and I have my computer in my kitchen. With that being said, I have about 5 minutes to write this.

Today I watched this documentary. And I'm going to kick myself for not remembering what it's called.. Hmmm.. lemme google it. Ok got it. "Art and Copy" (I actually had to call Joel cause I couldn't find it. He's basically my google) While the girls were at school, I sat down and cuddled my couch watching this. I was so inspired. The art and creative minds behind advertising has got me itching to do something more with my life. I almost wanted to get up and seek a career in advertising. It was from the first MACINTOSH ad to the "GOT MILK" ads. The Nike ads were insane. I can really appreciate how ads work now. Amazing.

Uh oh, I hear little voices coming down the stairs. It's Dez and Lex coming down to eat dinner.
I know there weren't any pictures on here. But this is a blog. Whether or not it's about beauty, I can write whatever I want on here, right? RIGHT.

I love my readers. Thank you for sharing your time with me.

PRODUCT REVIEW: WHAT JOY LIPSTICK!


Herro.
So here it is!! my favorite lipstick at the moment!! Jose brought it home from MAC. (He works at the Pro store here at the Forum Shops, visit him) If you guys have been following me, I LOVE DARK LIPSTICKS! The chola lip if you will. LOL
WHAT JOY has an amazing satin finish and goes well with BURGUNDY liner. If I'm feeling in a darker mood, I'm sure I will pair the lipstick with NIGHTMOTH liner from MAC.


From August 14, 2011

Below: So my lips look super red, but I swear that the lipstick is darker! More of a Merlot color.




Below: The top swatch is a couple swipes of lipstick. The bottom swatch is a single swipe.


Below: I have worn this lipstick with these two blushes. The one on the right is from the Barbie collection.. The one on the left is called FEELING. Depending on how bright I'm feeling I will choose between the two.

From August 14, 2011

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!! I will be showing you some more of my favorites!!

VEGAS TOURIST: Theres more that the DAM strip!

Herro.

I haven't done a Vegas post in a hot minute! This one may be different. Its nothing to do with clubs or hotel stay or to eat! This is history. HOOVER DAM. Although I wasn't able to catch the tour in time, but the public is still allowed to mosey around! Here are some photos! I filmed from here and will have it up! It was cool to see the bridge finally built. Last year when i went to Grand Canyon, it was still being built! They have a walk on that bridge so that tourist may catch an amazing view! A MUST!!!









Below: Joel was in town for some filming for our second channel. VIVATHEFRESH. Check us out on youtube! I think you'll like those videos! This was also after the Beautylish weekend. Thank the heavens he drove back to Vegas with me, I was so sick!



The last Hoover dam tour is at 4:15. So if you wanna go for that, go before then!!
I hope you all are having a wonderful day! Hope tomorrow inspires you.
