What’s in my bag??

Yes, Yes…I am back with another post!!

I wanted to share my new Youtube video (done in stop motion) and get your opinion on what type of videos you like to watch. I plan to shorten my videos to 5-8 minutes or below. This makes it easier for me to film more and to not waste your time!!

I hope you enjoy + feel free to comment anytime!

Until Next Time…

Tag: What I’m Using Now

Hello my lovelies!!

I have returned to you with a tag that I saw on the blog of the great + powerful, lady of a different color, Phyrra! I decided to do this a while ago but I got so caught up in a gazillion other things that I forgot to. also, the hair products I’m using now have changed but I started this before I got those (just days ago) so I will update this in a few weeks or so!

I hope you enjoy this tag + please do it too so I can see (yeah I’m nosy) what you are using right now!!

Until Next Time…

My Everyday Makeup Routine (Minus my famous eyeliner lol).

 Hiya hiya!

After I hopped out the shower I decided it would be a good time to do an everday makeup routine video. Part of the video freezes near the end and to this very moment, I do not know why!!!! *Shakes fist in air*!!

This is the normal routine I do if I am running out or if I am going to work but don’t feel like looking so fab. Maybe in the near future I will do a video of my “night out”, “date night” look. Would you guys want to see that? Maybe I will do a skin care routine video as well…hmmmmmm….OPTIONS PEOPLE!! Lol

I hope you like the vid and let me know what you think.

Until next time,

LOVE, PEACE + SHOPPING RECEIPTS!

UPDATE!!!!! (WHY I’VE BEEN AWAY)

Hey everyone!

So, I know it’s been a long time since I said I would be blogging and posting on YouTube again but my life has been crazy busy!! Let me fill you in on the deets.

MOVING:

I just moved to a new apartment. I did have an apartment with my roommate but that wasn’t working so I moved out. Sometimes you just need your own space. Now that I’m in my new place, once I paint and get a few things, I can start making youtube videos again!! Yay!

I bought this pretty (and inexpensive ($1)) wrapping paper that I plan to use as my filming background. I am also working on purchasing lighting so I can do Makeup tutorials and fashion videos.

Here are a few pics of my apartment:

Right now that’s all I have. My bedroom is just storage space at the moment and the kitchen needs some cleaning and organization.

BOYFRIEND:

Another thing that has changed in my life is my boyfriend! I haven’t been in a relationship for a long time and I met him and well, things changed. He’s sweet, nerdy, a cutie pie and his name is Charlie. He’s so fun to be around so I’m really glad we met!

WORK:

I’ve been working a lot lately and that’s not only my 8-5 gig but my business as well. I’ve been away from Chic n’ Black Styling for a while because I’m working on new endeavours for the company. I think the next step will be our accessories and lingerie line. It’s so exciting but so much work!! In the end though, it will all be worth it!

My regular job has been insane too and I’ve been going through a lot of changes there as well. I will update you guys soon on that information, it’s exciting stuff!!




LIFE:

Overall, life has been crazy but a huge blessing all at the same time. I definitely have been having some tough issues to deal with so it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. It’s life, not fair yet surprising! I’m excited to get back to blogging and making YouTube vids for everyone!! If you have any suggestions let me know and I will start working on the YouTube suggestions I received as well. I thank you guys for your support as always and can’t wait to be back!!
