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!!!

4 Reasons why I'll never use a standard charging cable again - ( 2 min read )

As anyone that has an iPhone will tell you, when it comes to charging cables for this battery-draining  beast, "the struggle is real". 

I'm tired of giving  $20 to Apple so they can stuff their pockets every 6 or 7 months, when their standard lightning cable tears or breaks. Then again those $6 Chinese imports from 7-11 may as well be disposable!


 So when I had the chance to check out the Power-Up Cable for iPhone and saw that it was coated in a nylon braid to make it extra durable and reinforced on both ends, you know I jumped at it!


I mean, what's a Boss Girl with a dead iPhone? (unproductive, that's what!)

Here's why it has my vote:
1- It's 6 feet long, so I'm not stuck leaning against the wall trying to send one more email while my phone is charging! "Wait until it's done charging", you say?
   "Hi, have we met"???

2. That nylon braid, not only makes it extra sturdy, but I don't have to worry about the cord tangling eithe…

The Crazy (but true) Things We Do in The Name of Beauty

When I was 14 years old, I had a really beautiful best friend.
I won't say she was evil, but I will say, adolescence is difficult, and friends sometimes do shitty things to each other ...
You get the picture?

 As for my friend? (Let's call her "Suzie".)
She had the longest lashes I had ever seen!      


 I had tried everything to get mine to look as long as hers; Gobs of mascara separated with a safety pin...Baby powder under my mascaraOlive oil every night Nothing worked, finally, I asked her...

"Suze, how can I get my lashes to look like yours, all long and beautiful? She said, Do you really wanna know?
Yes, whatever it is, I'll do it, just name, it I said.
Cut them, she said.
Cut them???
Yup, she said
How short do I cut them?
That depends,... How long do you want them? Her eyebrows raised, The shorter you cut them, the longer they'll grow" she told me.
