8 months...

later I've sat down to write once again and get the lighter stuff out of the way. I realize most people who follow this blog have done so because of Youtube, so I suppose I'll start there. I haven't made videos since October for multiple reasons, but namely because in January Youtube notified me that they had canceled my Adsense. Makeup tutorial videos are A LOT of work and extremely time consuming to be doing for free. Those that do it and aren't partners? I commend you. I can't. I am trying to figure out a way to monetize though, so stay tuned...

Work wise...NY is tough. Or has been for me. But I refuse to give up. Next step is to try to get an agent. I gave myself a year to test and book whatever I could to build my resume and book. Now is the time. :)

FashizBlack cover shoot with Angela & Vanessa Simmons - Behind the Scenes

Yesterday I had the pleasure of once again working with 2 of my favorite ladies: photographer MG Oania and hair stylist Mirna Jose on the cover shoot for Paris based magazine, Fashizblack. I had never met stylist Sarah Braga before, but she definitely knew what she was doing, and was a complete sweetheart.

Gracing the cover this month are the Simmons ladies, Angela and Vanessa. Angela provided our soundtrack for the shoot, bumping the likes of Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Kanye and Beyonce out of her Macbook, while I began her sister Vanessa's makeup and she talked to me about acting and the difference between living on the west coast versus the east.

I walked away feeling amazing after being able to spend the day with so many confident and driven females who love themselves and what they do. The magazine is out this upcoming Wednesday so be sure to go pick it up or check the site: I'll be posting photos here as well.
