I am going to the Ultimate Beauty Seminar feat. Sam Fine and Renny Vasquez!!!



Hey, Dolls!

I'm so excited that I have the opportunity to attend the Ultimate Beauty Seminar with my all time favorite makeup artist, Sam Fine; along with Renny Vasquez! 

I have been loving and following Sam Fine's work since I was a teenager. I have his book, his DVD and I've wanted to meet him on several occasions at The Makeup Show but I've always missed him. Now, I finally get to meet and learn from him! I have been following Renny's work on Instagram for a while now and I really love his flawless beats, he can give you an all out beat or just a very natural glam look. 

Now for my story...

When these two announced they were bringing their final class to DC, initially; I knew I wanted to go BUT I saw the $300 investment and talked myself out of it...especially since I had just come off a makeup cruise where I had  just paid to take some classes. I convinced myself not to go, and then the DC class sold out in 2 hours after the tickets went out sale. I figured no big deal, the class is sold out; I can't go anyway, but it stayed on my mind constantly. Then, Renny announced on Instagram that since the DC class sold out so quickly they were going to see if they could get a bigger ballroom and release more tickets to sell! I kept thinking about my funds...paying the $99 deposit wasn't too bad of an issue, it's the rest of it that's due the day of the class. #thestruggleisreal

I said to myself "this is their last class", this is also the opportunity to be taught by two of the greatest in makeup artistry. Plus, the class is from 10am-5pm. I have paid almost the same price of this class for classes that were only 2 hours long for 1 artist; and this is an all day event to see 2 artists... it really is a steal and an investment at the same time. So, when the tickets were released for those on the wait list (like myself) I went on and paid my deposit and sacrificed some expenses in my budget so that I could afford to pay the remaining balance.  I'm glad I did it, I can't wait and I'll definitely will be writing about my experience! 

Makeup and beauty is one of my passions and my craft in life and to be taught by someone who is at the top in the industry, who I've admired for so long is just mind boggling!!! I can't even articulate it sufficiently, it's just an honor and a privilege and it will be an unforgettable experience!

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!

At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.


Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."


Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
