How do you grow your hair out?

Like everyday, today seemed to go by fast. The morning went by in a blur, although I learned some very interesting things about the evolution of makeup, such as Queen Elizabeth used so much powder on her face, and since the powder had alot of mercury in it, started to eat holes in her face. Or during the Renaissance, "eyebrow" wigs were made from mouse hair, and a high forehead meant you were higher society. There was so much more, but I couldnt remember all of them. Some of them outrageous. The things we do for beauty.

I had to do a perm today on an older gal who was just so funny and full of spunk named Carolyn. Thats one perk that I get to enjoy when I have a guest in my chair and that is learning about someone and getting to know them. She once had cancer and was on some powerful medication at one time and her hair has been getting thinner. So now that she is cancer-free, she wanted to get a perm done to give her some volume.  She was so sweet and we laughed about kids, grandkids and whatever else came to mind. Her perm came out great and she was so happy with it! She will be coming in again in 3 weeks and we will do a PM Shines Color application. I cant wait, when she tipped me, she gave me two dollars and whispered to me, I usually only give $1, but youre good so I gave you $2. I hugged her and we laughed so hard about it. She comes from the same generation as my grandparents and from Florida so I felt like she could have been one of my grandmothers friends.

I think the funniest thing she asked me and she said "dont take this the wrong way, but what happens when you want to grow your shaved head part back? Do you just shave the other side too?" So stinkin cute! I laughed and parted my hair a different way and showed her that I could just hide it. She thought it was amazing. hahahah

See? here you cant even tell that one side of my head is shaved. I look almost normal> hahahah
I bet the older generations must think we are all crazy. It makes me wonder when I am that age how the younger generations will be like. I hope I am that one granny with crazy color hair doing cartwheels like Betsey Johnson! hahahaha

To old granny with crazy hair, Cecilia

Surrender to Your Inner Artist

Quote of the day:
I want to grow old without facelifts... I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I've made. Sometimes I think it would be easier to avoid old age, to die young, but then you'd never complete your life, would you? You'd never wholly know you.

Behind the Scenes

Here are a few photos from behind the scenes at the Miss Uproar Beauty event  and Uproar Festival

It was so amazing that I was able to be apart of this, especially since it was my birthday. I dont wanna be a "debbie downer" lol about my birthdays but I have had a few birthdays that werent the best. I feel like I can finally celebrate not only my birthday but my life and happiness. I create my own happiness!

My hubby was able to come along too for the ride and he loved it. We all got in for free and got Pit passes and also scored After party passes as well. Only a few people stayed that late to enjoy the party.

I stayed to watch Seether because I knew my mom would be mad if I didnt stay for their performance. lol Jermie and I caught a few guitar picks that they threw out to the crowd to add to our collection of other concert goodies we have started to collect! I will have to give my mom one of the guitar picks just for her!

I didnt stay for the afterparty because I had an appointment with Gentleman Jim from Blue Horseshoe Tattoo to start my collar bone tattoo chest piece!  Stay tuned for the next post on my tattoo!

Here is a video I edited real quick just a glimpse of some of the excitement that went on behind the scenes in the Backstage area. At the end of the video, there is a surprise serenading for my birthday.
I tried to load to youtube, but it wont :( having technical difficulties) So, hopefully I can just load them to here!

 I will have to find another way to upload this video, my server is actin up as usual. I will keep you updated on it.

Temptu Makeup

A few weeks ago, I had ordered a mini starter airbrush makeup set from  I ran into a dilemna with my airbrush gear and had to order a new airbrush and a new hose, there were some parts missing and finally after trips to micheals and home depot and the help of my husband, I was able to get what I needed to get the ball rolling.

I ordered this set, just to see how Temptu makeup sprayed on

can be purchased here:
I only tried one color last night, which was the yellow pigment. I sprayed it on my arm and cheek to test how it felt on my skin and I even tested it on my husbands chest and sprayed a fake six-pack lol I was laughing so hard. I wish I couldve gotten a pic of it, ( I am getting really bad at that).

So, here is my review on the Temptu: It does not rub off at all when it is applied to the skin. No sticky residue, it does have a slight odor to it, but nothing youre gonna gag on and wanna visit the toilet to see your lunch again LOL! It does come off easily, I just ran water over it and it was gone! I do not know how well it blends together with other colors, but I will be testing that tomorrow.

Tomorrow evening, I will be on set with a photogrpaher to shoot my galaxy "Runway" theme! I am so excited to finally get this going! I may have an assistant there to help film a before and during shot, or activity so I can "bring" yall with me!
