Hey Guys, how about we pretend that it hasn't been FOREVER since we last had a little beauty chat? Does that work for you? Yes? Great!!

Things have been crazy since my last post! I've been working, shooting, plotting and planning! I launched a new inspired lifestyle platform called Coffee Shops and Laptops and I'd love if you lovelies would check it out when you can. It was inspired by everything that I've experience building a beauty business. The focus is to start a real life conversation about freelance life and to inspire us all to keep on keeping on!

I worked on a new show on TLC called Love At First Swipe hosted by Clinton Kelly and my client Devyn Simone and I've been shooting beauty and building my book. Figured I'd pop in and share a few behind the scenes pics to show you all what I've been up to in my absence.  Take a peek and stay in touch! I'll be back soon with more ;)

 Talk soon :)


Talking Spring Tips & Tricks on Fox!!

It's no secret that I can talk. And when the subject is beauty... just try and stop me :) For the last few years, I've had the pleasure of doing live beauty segments for Fox in my hometown. Over  Memorial Day Weekend, I had the opportunity to go on Fox and talk all about my favorites trends and tips for Spring (and warm weather beauty) Keep reading to check out some behind the scenes and a snippet of the live segment.

Think Before You Ink!

I love tattoos. They're a fun way to show off your creativity. But… they're also permanent. The older I get, the more thought I put into everything I do. I've been considering a new tattoo for a while now so I decided to test drive a similar design to see how I felt about it. Read on to check out how you can test out your favorite designs before taking the plunge.


Work + Play

My little piece of work/makeup heaven :) 

When you think of New York City, you think of tons of space right!?

Wrong! It's quite the opposite. Living in this amazing city requires lots of…creativity!

In Baltimore, I had an entire room for my office/makeup space and I showed it no love. It was really sad. And as the saying goes… you don't know what you've got 'til its gone.

Now that we're in New York, I've grown to appreciate (and use) every inch of our space. Instead of a whole room dedicated to makeup and laptops, I now have, wait for it….a whole CORNER!

And funny enough, I love this space more than my other office because it forced me to get creative! Keep reading to check out my makeup space that doubles as my workspace with a side of book nook.


Spritzing on the Go!

Fragrance is a really BIG deal for me. I think we should all have a signature scent (or 3). I'm willing to guess that I'm not the only one who lugs their favorite scent (and the huge bottle that holds it) around just in case they need to freshen up. If you're with me, read on to check out an awesome little do-dad that'll make it a lot easier for you to spritz on the go!
