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!


Salon Attire with a Rebel Twist

Last week, I browsed a few stores and picked up on some clothes for the salon and being a fashion major at heart, I browsed online too for some trends that can be fashionable even though you are limited to certain colors for the salon. The beauty about working in the beauty industry is that we have the freedom to express ourselves in a creative way. Here are some trends I love and this can go for anyone-not just for hairstylists and makeup artists. Some of these I even count on being fashionable for the fall season so gear up!



















Here is a lil video I posted to youtube of me just picking up a few things and rambling on about some fun and exciting events coming up!
