Makeup Class was a Success

Good evening my loves! I hope everyone is having a good start to their week, as for me, Monday’s are my days off from the salon, but that doesn’t mean I actually get a day off. Since I am involved in so many different things, my schedule stays pretty busy.


Last friday, we celebrated Lah and Michael’s wedding ceremony and it was just so beautiful. Jermie and I got all dressed up in matching outfits (cheesy I know) which is rare and we loved it.

Layla Glam Squad: Nita, Chavonne and myself!


Pretty in Purple! I love this dress! ( I got it at Burlington Coat Factory for $15!!!)

Of course, Jermie and the Groom Michael getting it on the dance floor! We had a great time and it was so much fun to celebrate the love of two people vowing to share their lives.

Layla Glam Squad held our first monthly makeup class this past Sunday and I’m proud to say it was a success! We had several young ladies come out to learn tips and tricks of a makeup artist, ask questions and mingle with other professionals in the beauty industry.



This first class was our Intro to Glam, the next class will be held at the end of September and it will be “Eyebrows, Eyeshadow and Eyelashes”. I cant wait for that class! It was so much and I love meeting new people and artists in the industry because we are all so diverse with our skills all coming together for the love of makeup.

After our makeup class, my friend Chloe asked me to help glam her up for an 80’s work party and so here is a few photos of that as well!


Don’t they look so adorable???

It is almost the end of the tourist season here in Virginia Beach and so my hubby is pretty much done with stilt walking at the oceanfront. Here I am painting his face one last time for Beach Street.


In case you wanted to see my makeup of the day, here is a close up. I did a purple and black smokey eye with a lil eye design for fun with a plum lip!


This is the last week of August and soon it will be September which my birthday is in a week and then the kids return to school. I am excited for cooler weather and less mosquitos and more hot coffee and sweaters and boots. For now, It is time for me to go get some beauty sleep!

I leave this post with my Monday Motivational Quote!


80's Flashback

Who doesnt like dressing up and taking a trip back into time? The 80's were known for so many things, music, fashion, movies and so much more. Some say they were the best of times and I agree! I was born in 83' so I have alot of fond memories in my childhood growing up in the 80's. I wore my legwarmers and neon colored tights to my dance classes. I rocked out to the music along with my mom and my 2 aunts. I loved it, especially the hair and makeup. The 80's still serve as inspiration to many people including designers and artists.

me and jak jak gettin ready!

My friend Jackie and I were invited to go to a birthday celebration of a friend of ours where an 80's tribute band, The Legwarmers were playing. We got all decked out in our colored tights and chucks and bright colors and we got there and it was sold out. I WAS SOOOOOO BUMMED. I really needed a night out to let loose and have fun and be completely silly. Not wanting to waste the night,. we met up with a few of my friends and just kinda hung out.

So colorful and bright!

We felt a lil silly because we were the only ones in 80's attire- but we didnt care! We didnt stay out too long, because we were back home by 1230am. Were definetly getting old! LOL

silly face

I love 80's parties! I called up my cousin, Jessica to find out when our local tribute band, The Deloreans will be playing, and they will be playing this friday! I cant wait! I have gone to 80's parties before, last year we went and saw the Deloreans play. Here are some photos from that night!
