My Memorial Day Weekend Diary!!!!

Helllo Everyoneee....How was everyone's long weekend? I know there was alot going on this weekend .... Alot travelled to Miami, Vegas, Miami, and wherever else..... Hope everyone had fun, while being safe at the same time....I've heard alot of horrifying scary stories about things going on all over....  people getting injured, hurt & Dying ( Sean Kingston ski accident, and all the people that got hurt in the shoot-out in miami, the bus that crashed, the owner of LRG ...ETC..) makes you appreciate life and realize how precious it is, which is why I opened this post with that little quote. We often automatically expect Tomorrow to come but truth is Tomorrow is a gift, that God blesses us with daily and its up to us to make the best of it... let the people you love and that matter to you know it and don't spend time worrying and stressing about irrelevant things or people....appreciate and live each day with gratitude and purpose.......

I, personally had a lowkey but quite eventful holiday....Stayed in NYC but enjoyed my time with friends and even had some work thrown in as well....I will give you a day to day run down of my memorial day weekend...You know I am all about sharing...

FRIDAY, MAY 27TH, 2011
Friday was filled with work, work , work, work,.....I had a photoshoot and spent my whole week prepping for it....It was an exciting shoot with a pretty interesting concept.. our job was to transform this model into a ravenous bird....so think all your dark birds that prey on other birds.....I think it went pretty awesome. We shot at an abandoned building in williamsburg Brooklyn and alot of the clothes had like feathers, furs , lace and sheer...to kinda capture the avian theme ....because I love you guys soo I will give you guys a sneak peek into a couple of looks of the shoot..... I took these with my phone so excuse the quality and also there were 5 looks in total wasnt able to capture the 4th look but soon tooo comee... I am excited about the finished product...which I will of course share when I receive the photos back....

ANDDDD....while on set the make up artist decided to give me a make over...and did my make up...I am like a make-up artist dream ...I don't like to wear make up...the most I would do is eyeliner and a strong lip ( red, pink or fuschia lipstick)......sooo make up artist love to show me the beauty and transformation make up bringsss....and of course I love to oblige once in a while and have fun with it ...this time around I wanted strong smokey eyez. Had my own mini shoot after my make up make-over hehe.... What do YOU guys think?? ;-)
After my shoot I had all these exciting things planned, moviesss, drinksss w/ friends, etc... but I was sooo knackered none of them happened....I even showered ( to wake me up) and attempted to  head out but just ended up right back a home with friends and spent the time watching youtube vids, laughing and cracking jokes....GREAT DAY ALL IN ALL...I always love when I have work , no matter how long the shoots,... at the end of the day I feel so happy and fulfilled :-)
