The long awaited post about THE MAKEUP SHOW !

I know, I know,..... it's been forever since my last post, and I could make excuses and say " a cross country move, a breakup, another move, (not necessarily in that order)...sometimes life gets in the way".....
but truth be told, I got sooooo much loot at the makeup show that I wanted to be able to actually use it, and not just on myself, but on my clients, so that when I spoke to you about it, I'd actually have something to say.

So without further adieu, I give you ..... The Makeup Show LA Bloggger Bag

There was so much in this "goodie bag" that I almost don't know where to start.
 I have a few favorites that I could go on and on about so I'll leave those for last. I will say this, there are some things that I selfishly will keep in my own makeup bag that my pro-kit will never know about!!!

A moment for NYer's everywhere

This is a testament to all my friends and family back in NY & NJ that had to brave the storm that rocked them to their foundation, only to make them stronger. We are NYers, it takes a helluva lot more than terrorists and storms to break us! It's one of the things that I love about New Yorkers and what I've always been so proud of, is that after we've gone thru something together, it strengthens us, it makes us closer. I'll never forget the feeling of how connected I felt to my neighborhood, as a kid, after Hurricane Irene, we all emerged from our houses as if we were woken from a really long nap, and all gave each other a pat on the back as we acknowledged that yes, in fact, we had all gotten thru it unscathed. It was even greater when the Sept.11th attacks were over. I remember being so proud of my community for banding together and reaching out to each other. For once putting aside our differences like an old cup a'cawfee, and embracing our neighbors and opening our hearts. I'm in California now and the last 72hrs have been frantic for me as I didn't hear from my mom or my sister for days and only had the news to rely on. Watching houses and buildings crumble, hearing that the Atlantic City boardwalk and Coney Island are ruins, and listening as they tally the "death toll" I was instantly reminded of 9/11 and scared out of my mind for my loved ones. I got a video message from one of my best friends as she was being rescued by boat from her house. All i could see where flashlights shining on the water and hear her voice making sure all her kids made it, looking for her dog, it was very surreal. I've never felt more helpless. From what I can tell most of my friends and family are safe, and I thank God for that. I can only hope that this strengthens their relationships and their resolve to not give up, if it does, than nothing is lost. Even though, I'm transplanted now, I am and always will be a New Yorker so I feel justified in standing amongst my people, raising my middle finger and saying...
Suck it Sandy!

My 4 favorite products and the cheat sheet to the ZenMed Giveaway.

This is my quick introduction to the ZenMed Skincare Collection and Giveaway, and my top four products.
 Because that's how many you will get, if you win my Giveaway!
(Which let me tell ya, it's not  easy to narrow down.)

So I'm here to help you "navigate" your way  a little.  in other words, a Cheat Sheet.  The more I use this the more I fall in love with it!  I want to order their HD Powder by the trunk full! It is so fine milled that it literally makes me look photo shopped.  oh, and i had a really embarrassing realization...

Turns out I really dig BB cream now. I'm almost embarrassed to say this because I spent so many years thinking it was just a so so tinted moisturizer. Or maybe it's just this Complexion Perfection, but this is kind of the bomb! I have seriously been wearing this every day and i swear my skin looks younger and lighter without all that heavy foundation. (not that mine was ever "heavy" errrherm. !. ) but it's just nice…

This is what Natural feels like

A sneak peek for what's coming up.....
