Blog Post At 6am

Good Morning Dolls! Well as you can see I am fully awake, I can not fall back to sleep for the love of me. I made one sudden turn in bed and from then on I was wide awake, staring at the ceiling and thinking about things I really wasn't in the mood to think about..Has this ever happen to you?

What kinds of things were I thinking about you ask? Well some personal of course, me just thinking about the kind of life I want to live, how I want to make the BEST of this life God gave me to do right by. I was talking to a good friend of mines Eric Anthony Johnson who is the CEO of http://www.javaboiindustries.com/ and he is always great at giving advice and he made a comment during our conversation if the advice he gave me was too "unsugarcoated or harsh" and I said "Absolutely not, I like my coffee with sugar not my advice" and this is so true because I just want my friends and family to just tell me the truth on what ever thoughts they have of me or for me 100%. Eric is a great mentor and I appreciate his words always..Just wanted to let that me known.

Life may not always be what you plan it to be but isn't that a good thing? The moment of surprise? I feel like people and when I mean people I mean friends and family put so much pressure on us to live by what THEY think is the right way to live that we just constantly feel like a total disappointment. THIS IS NOT OK! I live my life the way I live it because it is my life. If God intended me to have a cheat sheet on life and all I had to do was just mimic what others were doing I mean does this make sense to you? I am just tired of people pin pointing my errors because I dont do things the way they would. I have put a lot of pressure on myself about this to a point where I am like "What am I doing wrong" The Answer: There is no answer you just have to roll with the punches...and expect the unexpected I guess. I know I am trying my hardest and when ever I am feeling down or just completely out of it I know who I can vent to and who not to vent to.

Look...I am not here to please everyone or anyone but I do like to put a smile on a person face is possible without the criticism, with out the judgement, with out these people having the need to base their opinion's by comparing my life to theirs..Im not mad I dont even think I care as much anymore all I know what I am doing and that my daughter loves me for it. I think we; especially us mothers out there get this feeling all the time and just dont know how to express it and I hope I was able to shine some light on the subject and let you know that you are not alone..I think actually I know that our biggest critics were some of the most beaten down victims of the same thing we are going through now..they just forgot the feeling it can make a person feel.

LMAO! I dont even know where all this came from..I guess it needed to be address..Hope you all have an amazing Tuesday morning. I will most likely crash this afternoon once my coffee wears off lol..but from no sleep to smiling now I guess it's all worth it.

Are You imPRESSED?

Good Evening Ladies,

Tonight's blog post is going to be all about a NEW innovative salon-perfect manicure that you can achieve yourself in seconds. Complete with the hottest shade trends to the eternal classics. There is no dry time and no mess. Just peel off and press on! So you are in a rush to go out and your nails are just not up to par then this is exactly what you need in your beauty drawer. I love to wear false nails especially if I want that glam effect without spending salon prices..and what's great about these nails are that they look like gel tips with the continue shine..you can wear these nails for up to 7 days and the shine will be as marvelous as the first day you put them on.

For all you X-factor fans out there here is an added bonus did you know that Broadway Nails is proud to announce Nicole Scherzinger as the celebrity brand ambassador for imPRESS Press-On Manicure. imPress Press-On Manicure is so easy to apply with the glue already applied to the nail all you have to do is peel off the protective cover and just place the nail firmly on your nail and hold for about 30 seconds and continue on to do the rest of your nails, so you don't have to worry about making a mess with glue or getting your fingers stuck together (Which of course I have done a million times lol) These nails are exactly what us girls need to juice up the fashionista in us when its time to go out.

imPRESS Press-On Manicure comes in 24 nail covers in 12 different sizes. With 18 colors ($5.99 each) and 18 patterns ($7.99 each). The packaging is completely genius because it comes inside a plastic container that looks like a bottle of nail polish also this nail kit comes with a prepping pad so before you start on your manicure you can remove any excess oils or lotion so the nails get a better grip on your nails.

Starting December 2011, imPRESS Press-On Manicure will be available in most major drug stores and Walmart stores nationwide. Your nails are ready for the spotlight so what are you waiting for check them out and let me know your experience with them.

Kiss Halloween Collection

Halloween is just 2 weeks away and I don't know about you but I am super excited. My friends and family know more than anyone else how I love my press on nails and lush eyelashes when it comes to going out on the town..But ladies I never thought I would see the day I would fall in love with some of the most outrageous lashes and fabulous nails for the Halloween season.

Yesterday I attended "Kiss Halloween Webinar" where they discussed some of the new Halloween products they had available for us ladies who want to tweak our looks just a bit. First lets talk about the lashes which are one of my favorites items in this collection. The lashes are super out there, very dramatic and just gives your look an instant "POP" and the best part is they come with 2 strings on each end of the lashes so you can place them without the hassle of using tweezers..once you add enough glue to the lashes you then apply and pull the strings out 1..2..3 and your done.

Next Up are the nail and face stickers..the nail stickers come in Halloween theme characters such as cute skeletons, spiders and webs. All you have to do is stick them to your nail and your set to go! Then you have the face jewel stickers which you can place on your cheeks or at the edge of your eyes to give it that dramatic look..anything you want to do you can with so many options in the pack to choose from. Also if you want to add some extra pizzazz to your nails you can use the nail art nail polish which has a fine brush to put decorations of your liking to your nails of course in its Halloween fashion the colors available are Black, Orange and White.

Now if you are in a rush and need some instand Halloween Nail Glamour, consider "Kiss Halloween Nails" where no glue is needed all you have to do is feel the adhesive off the plastic wrap and place on your nail and just stick on the nail and thats it..a good tip I learned from the Webinar is too leave the thumbs for last that way placing the nails are much easier.

Lastly you have 2 amazing lip glosses "Dark Seduction" and "Deliciously Sexy" which are like a blood red and a purple lip gloss.

To check out what Kiss has to offer please visit there site here

Please "LIKE" Kiss Nails on Facebook where they have regular giveaways to their fans..to "LIKE" their page now please click here

Thank you so much for taking the time out to read about "Kiss Nails" I have my costume ready...Do You?

Dita Von Teese Partners with Kiss Nails

Hey Dolls! I have to tell you when I found out that Dita Von Teese was making her own line of nails with Kiss Nails I was super excited to see what it was going to look like. For review purposes I was sent a set of nails from the Dita Von Teese collection and OMG its exactly what I expected, glamour and tremendous pizzazz.

Through out the years a lot of people used to come up to Dita and strike up a conversation with her regarding her nails and she would just say that she loves tributes to the past with a twist, and these nails are just that - chic, fashionable, and the last word in nostalgic glamour." Dita Von Teese is all about vintage sexy and old school glam and these nails nailed it (no pun intended lol)

They come in a set of 24 nails and glue and a cuticle pusher (if needed) I didn't use the pusher since I am always messing around with my nails here and there. The nails as you can see from the photos above are a bit on the pointy side which is alittle bit out of my comfort zone but still looked amazing..because I have a daughter I did have to file them down a little and they look just as amazing as if I would have left them alone. This set of nails does not come with the small nail file you would normally see in a pack of stick on nails because filing them down with defeat the purpose of the Dita Von Teese look. I however chose to file them down due to convienance.

If your interested in the Dita Von Teese Nails you can find them here

Kim Kardashian Inspired Outfit of the day

Hey Dolls, Hope all is well so for the past couple of days I have been thinking of some upcoming things I can do to my blog that can catch the attention of my fabulous ladies on here. I find Kim Kardashian to be such a fascinating person and stylish as well she is officially my style icon, we are the same height you know "SHORT" lol.

I had recently read a magazine where Kim was featured wearing the most adorable black and white maxi dress and I wanted to so replicate this look but at a more affordable price range. I think I did it because as I was shopping for my past Florida trip I found almost the same exact dress in a store called "Payhalf" for $14.99 the purse I am carrying is Mulberry for Target which came out to $39.99 alot cheaper then the $10,000 Berkin bag she was wearing that day. I hope you like the way the recreation came to be. Comments and opinions of this look would be appreciated. If you like this kind of post where I can recreate a celebrity look for a more reasonable price range please let me know and I will do just that!

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!! FNO 2011 is tomorrow are you attending? Where will you be going to celebrate and shop? Any Celebrities your looking forward to seeing? Would love to know what you all have planned. Much Moon Love from me <3

Kiss Everlasting French Nails

Good Morning Ladies,

I don't know about you but have you ever had that certain feeling come over you where you just feel so blah, so not yourself that you needed something to just lift your spirits and make you smile? Well, last night I had one of those feelings happen. Life has a way of coming at you all at one time and although I am a very positive person it's natural to feel less pampered especially on a budget. We as women need to find a way to take care of ourselves and feel inspired that beauty and glamour does not have to break the wallet.

Last night, I felt like doing my nails but not paint them or file them just have them done 1, 2, 3 and go about my business with out the worry of my nails getting smudged or messed up. This is why I LOVE "Kiss Nails", they have so many varieties of designs and looks to choose from its like being in a nail salon but at home. I chose to do my nails out of my regular comfort zone since I always go for a natural clean look like a french manicure but last night I wanted to do something different. I chose the hot pink french manicure and in less then 7 minutes I was done and I loved them.

The application is so easy all you have to do is find the right size to fit your nails, apply glue to the nail and apply a little bit of glue onto your natural nail, starting at the cuticle press and hold the nail firmly for about 5 seconds and THAT'S IT your done. What I also love about this nails is that they are chip proof and the nails can stay looking fresh and beautiful for about 7 days.

You can find "Kiss Nails" in any beauty supply store or drugstore such as Duane Reade for a real low and reasonable price fit for any women in any financial situation. Don't let the fear of life stop you from treating yourself, just think when your waving hello to someone your nails will be looking fabulous!

Miracle Skin Transformer Review

Hey Dolls, I wanted to take the time out to let you guys know about a fabulous new product that I have been using for the past month. I was sent a few samples of the Miracle Skin Transformer to try out and I have to tell you at first I was a little skeptical..this product was stating it can make my skin even and it wasn't a foundation but a tinted moisturizer..I am not a skeptic anymore because this product is amazing.

This multi-functional formula comes In 7 shades so it's perfect for all kinds of skin tone, being that I am tanned due to the sun in the summer time my color is Tan and it perfect for my skin tones. It is a natural-silicone tinted moisturizer that works immediately to hydrate, protect and enhance skin. It left my face feeling so light and gave me a flawless look with out all the heavy buildup of a regular foundation especially in the summer time. I took the Miracle Skin Transformer on vacation with me to Florida and I was so please with the results, my face stayed hydrated, it did not become oily or feel like I had tons of product on my face.

I would recommend you guys to try this product out if you really want a flawless look with out having a heavy feel to you face. There are other tinted moisturizer that just dont do it for me, either they are too heavy, greasy or the shade just isn't right.

Miracle Skin Transformer collection will soon retail at 123 Sephora stores nationwide starting September 15th. It currently retails at Bergdorf Goodman, NY and miracleskintransformer.com, sephora.com, and beauty.com.

As you can see from my photos above you can see the difference in tone and eveness in the before and after pics!

Nicole's Bath Delights

Who doesn't love to take a shower/bath a come out smelling so great, I know I do. Well I want to talk to you about a very special company called Nicole's Bath Delights. The owner who's name is Brittany is a stay at home mom of 2 children who loves anything that has to do with bath and body products, as she searched online she didn't find what she was looking for and was then inspired to start her own business in making goat milk soap.
She has about 50 different scents to choose from, fruity scents, perfume scents, to even a zodiac line of soap. Brittany was kind enough to send me some samples to try out and I must say I fell in love with each and everyone of them. I was sent the following:
1. Cancer (Zodiac line)
2. Apple Jack Peel
3. Lavender (I love)
4. Clinique
5. Oatmeal, Milk and Honey
6. Monkey Farts (My daughters fav)

Monkey Farts has almost a banana pineapple scent with glitter. My daughter Jayla loves it, everytime we get ready for her bath she asks for her monkey soap lol. What I love about these soaps that they consist of oils that is great for your skin such as sweet alomond oil, vitamin E oil, olive oil and liquid glycerin(vegetable) so that this soap makes a moisturizing lather on your skin. The packaging as you can see from the photos above were beautiful, you can smell the greatness of these soaps as soon as you open the package and it wasn't an over whelming smell either. I have nothing bad to say about these soaps, and I totally recommend them to friends and family. They are great for birthday gifts, Christmas gifts or even if you have a smelly friend lol, they dont need to know why but all joking aside this is a really great company and I love to support my hard working mothers out there trying to do the best they can for their families.

These goats milk soaps are $4.50 and they are buy 2 get 1 free or buy 3 get 2 free, most soapmakers charge $5.00 and you don't really get a better deal such as this one. Please check out her facebook page and go the info bar to get all the information you need on these soaps and well as all the different scents she carries. Brittany is also working on making bath bombs (which we all love) and bath salts in the future. Go check out her facebook page here, *LIKE* and make sure to tell her I sent you ;)

Thank you Brittany for allowing me try your amazing soaps. I wish you nothing but success and a million plus customers. Keep a look out for a video review coming soon :)

In Dedication To Caylee Marie

I feel a strong need to do this post, As a mother of a 3 year old little girl this blog post has to be done. Yesterday was a sad day for million of people all around the world especially for the little life we lost 3 years ago. Little Caylee Marie Anthony received no justice yesterday from the people who were suppose to look out for her, the people who were supposed to give her justice after all the suffering she had to endure. Casey Anthony was found "NOT GUILTY" of 1st degree murder and man slaughter. This woman who gave birth to Caylee (she is no mother for me to grant her the title) took this little girls life into her own hands. She stole the precious life little Caylee could have had in the matter of seconds just so she can party hard with her friends.

I dont understand how 12 people who saw all the evidence, who heard all the testimony, who saw the coldness of emotion from this woman face can determine she is of sound mine and not charge her with the murder of this little girl. It is a complete outrage, an outrage still being felt and heard all around the world. We want Justice for Caylee. I want Justice for Caylee. I am sad and angry that this all happen and that this woman will not pay for what she has done by law. The law failed Caylee, The justice system failed Caylee, The state of Florida failed Caylee. I hope thos 12 jurors, the defense team, Casey Anthony all go through heartache and are haunted by the decisions they made.

I ask those who are reading this post to please keep Little Caylee Marie Anthony in your prayers. On the right side of my blog page there is a petition for Caylee's Law. This is to make sure if a parent doesnt report their child missing in a timely matter they will face consenquences for not doing so. There has to be someone out there to stand up for what happen to Caylee, this little girl did not bury herself and place duct tape on her own face, she did not climb into that trunk on her own she was placed there. This woman who was suppose to love her a million times hard gave up the opportunity to be a mother to this little girl and instead killed her in order to live a "Bella Vita" as she so stupidly tattooed on her body around the time when she had "no idea" where Caylee was.

I have a message to you Casey Anthony, you may have gotten away with murder now but you did not for one second escape your judgement day, because you will be judged, you will reap what you sow. You will be haunted everyday for the rest of your pathetic life because you are a baby killer. No one will ever want to have anything to do with you because you are a poor excuse for a human being, you are a monster. Prepare yourself for your dooms day.

Please join me in paying tribute to little Caylee Marie. Although I never met her, I never saw her in person she is in my heart forever. I will continue to pray for her and pray that justice be served. May you forever Rest In Peace Caylee Marie Anthony we miss and love you always!

Are you Lip Savvy?

Hey Dolls! Today I have an exciting lip gloss review for you today. A few weeks ago I was sent a brand new lip gloss that had yet to come out on the market yet, I was very excited to try it due to all the great technology involved. First off lets talk about the packaging which is one of my favorite things about this lip gloss, I am one of those girls that carries a lot of things in my purse and can never find anything I'm looking for lol..well this lip gloss come in all kinds of funky designs and colors and while carrying it in my purse it was real easy to spot it out in all the darkness inside of my purse lol.

The technology in "Lip Savvy" lip gloss is super cool, it plumps up your lips without the pain and tingling sensation and it also hydrates your lips and target fine lines and wrinkles with Hyaluronic Filling Spheres™ and collagen boosting peptides. They also help with the aging process with a patented Complete Free Radical Protection Technology™ which slows down skin damage such as lines, wrinkles, discoloration, collagen breakdown, loss of elasticity, and moisture loss.

Lip Savvy lip gloss comes in 22 shades that compliments every skin tone. If you have a preference when it comes to extreme shimmer or a more low key kind of shine, Lip Savvy lip gloss has what you need, with 2 different kinds of formula used I am sure you will find what your looking for.

I have used this lip gloss in the color "Sho Bunny" everyday since I got it, and what I love about it is that its not does not have a sticky consistency and after about 2 minutes of having the product on my lips felt super moisturized and healthy. I did see a hint of plumping action on my lips after about 10 minutes and the color and shimmer just stood on for hours, which is a very great thing. The only con I have about this product is this is my personal preference and opinion is I don't really like the applicator which is a small brush and as you click the bottom of the lip gloss it produces more product which to me I just find messy. I wish it would have as a wand where as I can determine how much product I want to use.

Over all I love this product and will recommend it to anyone. I will be filming a video review so keep a look out for that.

You can purchase Lip Savy Lip gloss by clicking Here
or by clicking Here

At the estimated retail price of $20.00 you can have the most hydrated, most fabulous lips ever.

JavaBoi Industries

I want to start off my dedicating this entry to the person who inspired me to write about it. Mr. Eric Anthony Johnson. If you want to know the definition of a walking inspiration, success in human form, and the aura of positivity then I recommend that you continue to read on.

Eric Anthony Johnson is the CEO of JavaBoi Industries, this is a company that offers the most adorable yet fierce t-shirts for the ultimate coffee lover (like myself) in all types of colors and creative phrases such as “Im Java Whipped”, “Tea is coffee’s gay cousin” and “In Java we trust”. Eric has come such a long way to promote and advertise his business in the best way he knows how and of course I was hooked right away. I remember the first time I ever heard of JavaBoi Industries, I was watching a fellow youtuber Ms. BentlyBlonde and she was doing a review of a couple of his shirts and I just fell in love instantly, I said to myself “Get out of here how cute is that?” and I just had to get more information on this company. I later found Eric on Facebook and requested him, there he would post the most inspirational statuses and would hold giveaways on the occasion to his loyal fans. One day Eric held a giveaway on one of his shirts to whomever can answer one of his questions and of course I answered correctly and won a Javaboi T-shirt which I immediately fell in love with, This is where my addiction to caffeine got stronger lol.

Once you order a T-shirt from Javaboi Industries the representation is just flawless, the shirt comes inside a coffee bag (No coffee inside of course) but the creativity of the packaging is simply memorable. Eric is in the process of making shirts for kids as well which is very exciting since I am dying to get one for my daughter.

I really look up to Eric because this is visual proof of someone making their dreams become a reality. I am so proud of the steps he has taken, and so in awe of his professionalism and his positive outlook on life he is just a walking inspiration to me and many others.

I wish Eric all the success he deserves, all the magic a person can with hold, all the light and positivity in his heart to make JavaBoi Industries a 100 store chain in the world. I know he can do it. If you are interested on purchasing one of his T-shirts please check out his site www.javaboiindustries.com Wish you all the best Eric on all your endeavors 

My Interview With DBeautyJunkie

Jmoon-1. When did you know that being involved in the beauty industry was something you wanted to do?
DBeautyJ-Actually I used to be the biggest tomboy I preferred my timberland boots and baggy jeans to a dress any day. I only made an effort during special occasions and holidays. It was about five years ago that I officially started the girly transformation to full time status. It was mainly due to an intervention by a friend of mine. She marched me into Sephora and told me honestly I'm worth it. So I kept it going.
Jmoon I think every young girl had a tomboy phase one time or another so I can totally relate to that feeling.

Jmoon-2. What gives you inspiration on a daily basis when regarding your blog entries?
DbeautyJ-People don't understand how much effort it takes us to be beauty bloggers having to write everyday and be clever is difficult sometimes. However my writing is an escape when I'm having a difficult day at work I'll hide in the bathroom put on some makeup and start writing. It's a tension stress reliever.
Jmoon LOL! I can totally picture you hiding in your office playing with makeup :D

Jmoon-3. Since having your blog have you noticed great things happen or did it stay pretty much the same?
DBeautyJ-Actually everything stayed the same for awhile it took about a year when some amazing things started happening. Suddenly I was popular and people were asking my advice. Later I would be invited to brand parties and I'd even meet creators and famous MUA's. It has been a tremendous ride and I'm so very blessed to be on it.

Jmoon-4. What are you hobbies? What do you do to wisk your mind away from the chaotic world?
DBeautyJ-Hmmm I don't really have hobbies, i'm a bit of a tech junkie so I guess my hobby would be playing with the newest toys out.

Jmoon-5. What are your favorite makeup brands?
DBeautyJ-it's so hard to pick, but I adore Make Up For Ever I use their products on a daily basis. Being a makeup junkie my favorite will depend on what I'm wearing that day.

Jmoon-6. What would your advice be for young girls wanting to be just like you?
DBeautyJ-My advice don't be like me LOL...I'm trouble. My only real advice to anyone is to be yourself, and get comfortable in your skin. It took me a long time to feel beautiful and young girls need to realize they are gorgeous they way they were made. Enjoy your youth!
Jmoon- I couldn't agree with you more.

Jmoon-7. Have you met any interested people along the way?
DBeautyJ-You always meet interesting people when you keep yourself open. Out of everyone I have met I will admit Ms. Moon is one of my favorites, in this business it's so rare to find genuine people and you my dear are beautiful.
Jmoon- That is so nice of you to say and it really touches my heart. You are a great person as well and I am so blessed to call you my friend.

Jmoon-8. What is your number one main goal? What would you like to see come out from doing your blog?
DBeautyJ-My main goal with this blog is self expression, I want to always be true to myself so my readers will enjoy the content. In the future I would love for this blog to support me, so I can stay home and play with makeup full time.
Jmoon- Wouldn't that be the ultimate dream job, I really do hope that happens for you, I think you are an amazing writer.

Jmoon-9. If you can pick just 3 makeup products to take on a deserted island what would they be?
DBeautyJ-To get me on a deserted island would be a major challenge but if you knock me out you'd probably find in my pocket Korres Cherry Lip Gloss, Shea Cashmere hand cream from Bath and Body MUFE eyeliner (color dependent on outfit at time of kidnapping)

Jmoon-10. What would your advice be to a young girl who wants to start a blog of her own?
DBeautyJ-My advice to anyone that wants to start a blog is stolen from Nike...JUST DO IT. Believe in yourself you'll never know where it will take you.

Jmoon- Thank you so much for taking the time out and doing this interview. I know many ladies who would love to know what is behind the blog. Its a great way of learning how genuine and special that person is, and you my dear are an absolute jewel.

Sick in bed..

Happy Tuesday Dolls..So I have been thinking that I should write whats going on in my life. Just a little entry letting you ladies know whats going on with me at the moment. For the past 2 days I have been really sick and honestly I am the type of person that hates calling out of work because I dont want to look irresponsible. I much rather go to work and have my boss tell me to go home then me just call out but today I had to call out cause I was just so out of it. I was talking to a friend of mines yesterday and we were just joking around about how funny I sound since I was losing my voice so I took that and came up with an idea of singing a song for my youtube channel. I was actually proud of myself for going through with it cause I am occasionally shy at times. I posted the video and recieved all these amazing comments of people saying how much they loved the video and how I made them laugh lol. I was so happy to hear that.

Making that video made me open up a bit and not be so scared about what people think about me. I promised myself to do more makeup tutorials so that I have a wider range of videos to show on my channel and doing this singing video really helped. I am hoping once I get back to my 100% self I can make more videos conquering fear. If you would like to see the video of me singing please feel free to go to my youtube channel or see below.

Right now I am just taking my medicine and getting some well needed rest so that I can be ready for work tomorrow. I hope you all are enjoying your day and if you liked this entry and would like me to add more personal things going on in my life please leave me a comment below and I will do just that. Smooches Dolls XOX

In Honor To Talent

I have had the honor of meeting Ms. LayDPynk a few months ago and she is the sweetest most humble and one of the most talented girls I have ever met. The first time I learned about LayDPynk was when I stumbled upon one of her Youtube video where she is known as PynkPussyCat. I just thought to myself “Wow” this girl is such a natural and I loved how her beautiful children where in her videos almost all the time playing in the background. Ms. LayDPynk has an amazing imagination and she makes it known when she does her Halloween inspired makeup looks, or her glammed up diamond eyes look, she also does unique hairstyles in which she just creates art in whichever way she can.

Ms. LayDPynk’s talents doesn’t just stop there, she is the proud owner of a fabulous website called www.LayDPynk.com where she sells beautiful jewelry such as necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets in forms of snakes, butterflies, blow dryers and skulls. She also sells sexy dresses to go out on the town or to go clubbing with the girls, she also just started selling shoes on her website for all you shoe lovers out there. Ms. LayDPynk is making herself known to the world in which ever way she can. I recently attended IMATS NY and there Ms. LayDPynk was handing out her flyers and business cards, this was a girl on a mission. I was so proud of her and so inspired by her strengths that I felt the need to write this blog in her honor and in hopes that you lovely ladies who follow me on this blog will take notice of her kind spirit and take a gander on to her website.

I have the honor to tell you that I have met some amazing women, and Ms. LayDPynk a.k.a my friend Tabatha is one of those amazing women, and I feel blessed to call her my friend. Talent comes in all different shapes and forms in this case..Talent IS LayDPynk. Love Ya Mamas!

Make It Happen

Ever wake up in the morning and open your eyes and think “What the heck am I doing with my life?” I can’t even explain to you how many times that has happened to me. I have this vision as a young child that I was going to be at a certain place at a certain time. We all have to make our mark in this world in some way or another but we are rarely given the opportunity to prove that point.

Recently I started thinking just because I have my regular 9-5 that doesn’t mean that defines me and my personality does it? If I am a working woman by day where this is the job I do to make a living and pay my bills to support my family does that mean this is the definition of “Jasmin Ortiz?” I decided to take the steps I needed to make in order to make a name for myself, to prove to myself and no one else that I am capable of achieving my wants in any way I can. Although I know schooling is a big factor it isn’t the only means of success, you can be self taught and read as many books in the subject of your choice and become a expert in that way, create opportunities where you can be more hands on and learn that way.

I will be honest with you I didn’t always love makeup; my first love has always been and forever will be fashion. I learned to fall in love with the cousin of fashion just about a little over a year ago. I never wore makeup the way I do now and I feel as it helped me become this more confident person. I was embraced by all the makeup love at that point lol.

This entry is being written to you in hopes of getting to know me a little bit better as well as helping others who doubt their talents. I know many of you have some kind of dream, some kind of wish that you would love to make happen and I am here to tell you that YOU CAN ACHIEVE ANYTHING YOUR HEART DESIRES. Keep fighting for what you believe in, if you love fashion then collect magazines learn what is hot for this upcoming season, help your friends with their wardrobe, make them over and take pictures. If makeup is your passions then have makeup get together, do your friends and families makeup for a night out or an early brunch and take pictures, you can learn in so many different ways. I have so many passions in my life and I have to tell you that I try my best to combine them all. If this world was full of people with passion rather than people settling just to make ends meet, No one is going to be happy and there will be no positivity in this world. Take what defines you and OWN it! Do whatever it is you have to do big or small and just try. You or no one is this world can say you didn’t and the best feeling in the universe is proving doubters wrong. Good Luck in all your endeavors. Make yourselves proud!!

Mercedez Benz Fashion Week 2011

February 13th 2011 will be a date that I shall remember forever and a day. I was blessed with the opportunity to be a part of one of the most biggest moments in fashion history. A good friend of mine invited me to join her and experiece fashion week first hand, and I have to tell you it was everything I ever dreamed of and more.

First let me share a little story with you. When I was about 8 years old I knew that I loved to draw and design outfits for my Barbie, I knew that there was something about using your imagination to create something so beautiful it was your soul painting on paper. The day I knew I wanted to go to school for design was the day I said to myself "I am going to attend fashion week in NYC one day" and just a few days ago I did just that, not as a designer but a spectator but "Oh what a magical night that was".

I was blessed to glance at the work of Diane Von Furstenburg and Zang Toi and "Oh My Fabric" was it an amazing sight to see live and in person. The colors these designers used were so vibrant and enchanting. The romance in these dresses were just moving with life, the models walked with such elegance and class. It was like experiencing what was inside one of their dreams it was so unreal.

Spring 2011 will be all about color and patters, I saw alot of floral patterns as well as bold bright colors such as bright reds, greens and blues. One particular fabric that stood out to me was the sequins, There were sequin dresses and jackets that were the "New" night blazer in my book. I wish you ladies could have seen first hand how beautiful everything was. If you stop by my youtube channel you can see some footage I recorded from that day.

This was really a dream come true for me, and I know that life can be real unfair at times and you might think nothing will ever happen for the good but please just take a moment before you start to believe that and know that someone out there went to hardships too and after the storm the rainbow came out for her. Believe that anything can happen, Believe that you can make your dreams come true as well, Fight the fight to success and you too will have a moment for life like I did. XOXO

My Youtube Channel

Next month on March 17th will embark my one year anniversary on youtube. This was the day I started out on a new venture in my life. This was the day I stepped out of my shyness and started making videos for hundreds to see. I must admit it was very nerve wracking but I couldn't let me nerves get the best of me. Through out this journey I have grown into a more confident person and a must self assured individual.

I have met some wonderful people who I am honored to call my friends. These women and I have a bond, a link, a similar love for makeup and fashion. A way to explore beauty in many many different ways. We can go outside the box and create a sense of comfort using just colors and a smile. You can tell how much we enjoy making videos just cause it shows all over our faces. Many of us are mothers, wives, some of us do youtube to keep us company due to our husbands being in the army. We all have our reasons why we chose to have youtube in our lives. I chose youtube because I wanted to share my love for fashion and makeup and maybe learn a thing or two from others who share the love on their channel and I most definitely did.

Im writing this blog for a few reasons, I wanted to tell the people who follow my blog "Thank You" for your continue support. I know that I dont post as much as I should but that is why I am here tonight..To give you a promise, A promise that I will post most often. Makeup, Fashion, Friendships, Work, Anything that comes to mind. I am here to give a opinion. I would love to hear more about your thoughts on what I write as well or even what you might like to see. I am trying out a few things that I want to do a review on, I want to take my time and give the products my full attention so that I may give you a honest and thorough review.

Again, Thank you so much for all the love and stay tuned because I promise great things ahead. :) XOXOX
