Magazines, Meetings and Shoots

When I first woke up this morning, I thought I would have the day to get caught up on some drawings and work on a few projects, and although I did get some things done, the afternoon and evening took a turn into a different direction. Don’t worry, it’s not a bad turn, but actually a very good one. I always believe that if you put positive energy out into the universe, that you get it back in one way or another. Also, that if you surround yourself with people who are liked minded, things just happen. Energy bounces off one another and you start getting these ideas that turn into something that could be a stepping stone for something bigger.


I got a lot done, I edited the Kreative Thinking Auditions video so the whole team can see what models we have for the fashion show coming up in June. Then, my friend, Jinaki (fellow hairstylist and Makeup Artist) came over and I helped her to design her business cards while we chatted about future business plans.


I had some phone call meetings with a videographer that is helping KT in a promotional video and also a producer to go over details for a photoshoot were doing tomorrow. The best thing I love about being a freelance artist is that I get the pleasure of meeting so many people in diverse fields. I mean, it’s an awesome feeling.

After our meeting, we did some storyboarding, which is almost like collaging, but more organized and tells a story or a theme. Story Boards you see everywhere from advertising, modeling, photography, magazines and fashion shows. It helps to have a visual aid to assist in making the mood set for the shoot or project. I mean, who doesn’t love a visual?

There were a few things that I couldn’t find in a magazine, so in those cases, I always turn to POLYVORE! Its like an online storyboard generator! Here is one I came up with for tomorrow


I am so excited for tomorrow, so I should take my butt to bed as it is turning 130am and I am the only one up in the house and I have a long, but fun day planned for tomorrow. So, off I go!

XOXOXOX, Cecilia

Focus on where you need to be in life and once you've reached it, you will see the people who belong in it.

Hannah Rose quotes

The Silver Lining

As an artist, makeup artist, hairstylist, you should know I love COLOR! I posted a timeline of my hair and what colors I have had last year. I have had this current style for a few months now and Im ready for a new change in my hair. I have been scoping the internet for inspiration on what I want to do. From google ro Pintrest I have found some photos I love!

So of course, I wanna share with you what inspires me. I am waiting for my kids to get ready and dressed so we can go out and I can go to the hair supply store. Matthias wants to paint pottery today, but thats a bit too expensive right now, so were gonna go to Micheals in a bit and get some fun things to paint.

I have some sketching to do later for a Vegas Theme prop I am doing. I have to figure out also what the best material will be to make it because I am thinking plywood will be too heavy. I dunno yet. But thats later, so let me share these photos and I am pretty sure you can guess what color I am leaning towards more. hahaha

I love this hair cut

Of course I am gonna put my own spin on this. I have someone that is going to do this for me (hopefully if everything works out the way its supposed to) if not, Ill prolly get too impatient and do it myself. Ill make sure to take before and after pics and share!

I am off to help the kiddos get ready and maybe we will go by the beach and get some icecream on this nice day. I hope you have a gorgeous day too!

So do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will take care of itself.
Though we are never promised tomorrow, and though we should always make an effort to go for our dreams and to have plans for tomorrow, we must never worry about tomorrow so much that we forget about today.

Today is the day that we can make tomorrow greater. In an effort to live the best life we can possibly live we have to put all of ourselves into every single day, and every step that we take in life so that we may be able to make the best future for ourselves.

The rest of our lives dont start tomorrow, the rest of our lives start today. The person that you are today may have come from who you were before, and the person you are today will be influential in who you are tomorrow as well. So be the best person that you can possibly be today, take risks, live courageously, work hard and love with everything inside of you.


This single phrase on this photo circulated among many people online and I just had to share it with my viewers.

We always find excuses when it comes to doing things- I am definetely guilty of this too. Especially when it comes to projects, homework (when I was in college) or other boring chores that I dont wanna do, like clean out the college or even my car. hahaha

Many of us procrastinate, wanna sleep in all morning or push off something that you say you will do tomorrow and then forget about it altogether.

My friend Terry

She made this for me
I had posted this online, and a friend of mine (Terry from the picture above mine) from school saw it when she was laying in bed, contemplating whether or not to come to school that day, and because she saw this image, she came to school and said that it made her day, even though she didnt want to come, she knew that she needed to be at school.

She hated me for posting it while all still loving that I did post it. It made her day and in a way it made my day too. Its nice to know when I can make someone smile.

So I hope this made your day! Enjoy some of these quotes that I find motivational as well. And as always, thanks for stopping by! 

We shall never have more time. We have, and always had, all the time there is. No object is served in waiting until next week or even until tomorrow. Keep going... Concentrate on something useful.
Arnold Bennett quotes

Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy.
Wayne Gretzky quotes

You've done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.
Ralph Marston quotes

Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results.
