Sunset Inspired Hair

One of my clients stopped by last night for me to do her hair anyway I wanted to do.  I love when I get a chance to do wild, funky hair! Its just my absolute favorite. I usually dont plan out how I am going to a color placement until its time to part the hair. Once I have the vision in my head, I go to work taking care to not mix the wrong colors together.

I have been inspired by the sunset lately and all the colors the sky turns while the sun is drifting away and the moon starts to peek out in the night sky.

Here are a few pictures of when I was blow drying and then curling her hair. She loved it, as well as everyone else who was watching me do her hair! Hope you like it and tell me what you think!
I used Joico Colors available at Cosmo Prof
I dont why I look so serious...I guess I am concentrating!
I love the way all the colors look when curling hair!
Her hair kinda resembled tropical flavored skittles....I almost wanted to eat her hair. hahahaha

I love this so much, I am tempted to do this to my hair, but then my client wouldnt be the only one rockin this style. And I dont copy any style even if it is one I created for someone else. hahaha

I wanted to share with my viewers of course all the types of art I am involved with! Hope you enjoy this latest piece of art. Hope to see you soon!

Art Supplies from Home Depot

I love Home Depot. I am not a "handy" person or can build anything or fix anything. I mean I have common sense....I can hang pictures on my wall, or hmmmmm, um er.....I think thats all I can do. hahaha I would actually love to be able to build things around the house. I have always wanted to help out in building a house or make furniture. The closest thing I got to making was helping my grandpa build a lil stand to sell sodas and handmade yarn bracelets. hahahaha Or making a wooden floor for a tent in Iraq. That sums up my Handy-ness.

I love going to Home Depot for inspiration and ideas. I love the garden section although I dont really enjoy working a garden. haha I made a trip recently to pick up supplies for an art project I have been working on for a lil bit. Here is a lil peek into my shopping cart:

Spray Paint, foam brushes, Latex primer, foam rollers and a paint pan. You can see my rough sketch of what I am working on. I also got some plywood, when I took this picture, I was having the plywood cut. 

The weather was nice enough and I was able to prime the wood with 2 coats of primer. I outlined my artwork and gonna start painting tonight. I have some long hours ahead of me.

Just wanted to share one of the many projects I am working on.  I will take pictures when it is all done and of course share them!

Back from Korea

My mom just got back last week from a year tour in Korea (she is a Chief in the US Navy), so that is one reason I havent been online lately so I can spend time with her! It is so good to have mom back home. Here are a few pictures of my mother, my brother and myself. We have more pictures, but have to get them from her camera hahaha. We grilled out a few burgers and enjoyed the nice spring weather that we have been lucky to have lately.

I also took a few pics of the blooming flowers in the backyard. Its nice to see the grass turning greener and the trees and flowers with their buds blooming. *Cheesy moment* haha

My mom treated herself to a new present, what better to buy than a new car. She has always loved sportscars so she got this baby!

Man, makes me wanna go back to the military and go overseas so I can treat myself. hahaha

Im off to work on a project for a hair show, which I will write about in the next post!

See you soon!

Kandee Johnson Designer Bag

Kandee Johnson is one youtube guru that I watch and read religiously. Not that I am a crazy stalker, but she is someone I look up to as a mentor/sister/friend even though I have never met her. She has inspired me to attend cosmetology school, become a makeup artist, start a blog and even do youtube videos. She is just one of the kindest, funniest, nice people I have ever come across.

You can check out her blogs at and

She got the opportunity to design her very own handbag, or more like a messenger bag through Imoshion. I am so excited, not only because she designed it, but this is exactly my style and what I look for in a bag.

Check out her video here and she explains everything about the bag! You will fall in love!

Because of her very big fanbase, the bags sold out in a day and they were not expecting so many people to buy them! So for now they are on back order, but you can preorder them and Kandee had also included a 15% discount code for you : "LUVKJ15"  you can preorder here.

I will be preordering mine next week! I need a new purse because the Coach messenger bag my mom got me last year is already breaking because I use it everyday!

I just wanted to share this with my readers! I hope you have an amazing weekend and see you in the next post!
