Princess for a Day

It has been so busy this week, and I finally got a night to type up some blogs. I really try to blog everyday, but it gets hard when I dont have an ipad or a tablet or even a smart phone hahaha But that is on the bottom on my list of needs/wants for right now.



Last saturday, I participated in Princess for a Day at Rudy & Kelly Paul Mitchell Partner School. We get to dress up in pretty dresses and little girls come in dressed up as princesses and they get their own crown and their hair curled, a mini eyeshadow application, lip gloss and nail polish. I had brought my face paint so if any of them wanted to have something on their cheek I could whip out my paint brush and make them even more glamourous!


We felt like princesses ourselves :)

My daughter finally let me do her hair!

She loves these events!
We are having this event again soon. I believe sometime next month! I dont think I will do it again just so other future pros have a chance to do it. But I had a blast and I am glad all the girls did. I wish they would do a "Super Hero for a Day" so that all the boys have something cool to go to. I could do their facepaint and spike their hair up because I know my son Matthias would love it! When I have my salon/boutique, I will def be having those events for my special little guests :)

Thanks for stopping by my sweets!

My boyfriend calls me princess, but I think of myself more along the lines of monkey and retard.

Neptune Festival

A few days ago, my friend and I went to the Neptune Festival here at Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Neptune Festival is one of my favorite events of the year. There is so much going on for it such as Sand Castle building competitions, surfing competitions, rides and fun things for kids to do and wine tasting, and then the arts and crafts show which is the main reason I like to go.



I was mainly looking for one particular vendor that came last year and he made these beautiful statues and figurines made of plaster, so they were super cheap and easy to paint. I ended up buying a mermaid and painted it these awesome colors. I love this mermaid sooooo much, so I was looking forward to possibly buying more from him so I could paint them and maybe create an ETSY shop selling them. But he wasnt there. I was sooo sad. I did manage to get a card from him but of course I left it in my pants and it got washed in the washer. aaaaagggghhhhhh!!!!

But check out these other cool vendors that I love!

I want to buy these for my boutique salon!

I think this is a cow hat/scarf

This is a vanity made out of antique wood

I love this with Frakenstein on it!

This is such a beautful piece!


this mermaid is sooo pretty!


We walked up and down the boardwalk and no luck. I was searching also for just a plain burger and fries and I finally found a food vendor that had it. hahahaha I am such a picky eater sometimes.

There was this really cool tent that had all these hats and scarves and sweaters made of I wanna say wool or something but they were handmade and sooooo adorable. I really wanted this tiger one! They were so warm and thick and soft. Many other people had bought them because it was a chilly day on Sunday, me and Jackie even had our scarves on.




I did end up buying this really awesome earring and yes I only bought one. The pair was $29.99 but I only had a lil cash just so I wouldnt spend everything, so I bought one for $14.99. It is 100% Sterling Silver and I dont know what it is about this piece and the face and how it is broken, but I fell in love with it and now it never leaves my ear, except to sleep and shower hahahaha


What was your favorite thing you saw? I think my favorite is the tiger scarf lol its just too cute!

Thanks for stopping by my lovies!!!

Taste the RAINBOW

I teamed up with my friend T'tielle a few days ago during our photoshoot class to practice on my Day of the Dead makeup, which turned out A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! (If you missed out on it, click here). So, the next day, it was her turn to do my hair and makeup. She wanted to do a Skittles Candy Theme. We tried to glue Skittle to my eyebrows but we werent able to get them to stick without cutting them in half ( I forgot my exacto knife which would have worked perfectly!) She ended up putting loose glitter overwhere the Skittles should have been. We had fun attempting to put candy on my face. hahaha




T'Tielle has a very bright and fun outgoing personality so I thought it was perfect that she wanted to do this rainbow theme makeup. I love that she wanted to use blue as a blush on my cheeks. I love anything out of the box!



Our friend, Jinaki "Naki Saki" braided up my hair and curled it so it would be fun and bouncy! Then paired with my most brightest yellow top and green dress, I took a few pictures. I look like an 80's commercial for Rainbow Brite or Skittles. hahahahaa

The other girls in my class looked so AMAZING too!




And this last picture, I had to take with the "fish face" just to mock all the girls that do that face when they take pictures. and you know what I am talking about. We all used to do it. lol

What the Heck is CAPER?



I have been mentioning Caper for a few posts online and I have been getting the question, "What is Caper?"

Caper is an educational experience held for Future Professionals only. Three days of non-stop entertainment, inspirational speaking and amazing education from Paul Mtichell's Advanced Academy Memebers and Global Artistic Team, such as Robert Cromeans, Angus Mitchell and Takashi...just to name a few.

Its a chance for us future pros to learn directly from the top stylists doing haircutting and color and so much more. We get to have fun along the way too, especially at the All White Party I have heard so much about.



But we cannot just buy a ticket and go there, we have to EARN our way to get to Vegas by selling Caper Bags. Each school across the country is provided with certain amounts of bags and we have to sell 40 of the product bags, or 8 of the Tool bags and it pays for our ticket and hotel stay  and airfare to go.

Here are the bags:





Tuesday is our CAPER KICK OFF at school and we are doing a school POT LUCK and we get to wear Caper Colors of product lines. I am making Lumpia and fried rice! Which will be yummy!

I am so determined to go to Caper not just because it is in Vegas, but because this is an awesome opportunity to actually learn from the Pros and have a fun time. I have been offering some of my clients free hair cuts and style if they purchase a bag or two in my name and so I have a few of them ready to be sold on Tuesday!

The bags can be sold through the month of October, but its only until the supplies last, and last year, our school sold out in 6 days! So I have been on my grind to get these bags sold!

Please, anyone that would like to purchase and help me get to CAPER, please contact me at cecilia@sweetsurrenderart.com. Anyone can call up to the school as well as place the order and pay with a credit card to reserve it. If I need to ship it out to anyone, I would gladly ship it to you for free if you are not in the 757 area!

Thanks for stopping by as always, I appreciate every one of you who take the time out to read my lil blog!
