I am planning on buying some long, straight hair wigs for use during photoshoots so I wouldn’t have to straighten my own hair. I can’t wait to try em on and see how they look. I’ll post pics for sure.
So remember the Alicia Keys Style I tried: HERE
Well, I tried again and I timed myself. I got it done in 12 minutes. It’s slightly sloppy, but I LOVE IT. I’m going to try some more styles incorporating flat twists soon.
In mexico I bought:
I normally don’t buy this brand, not because I don’t like it or anything, but because it is usually pricey in my CVS.
In Mexico it was 30 pesos. (12 pesos = $1, you do the math) So I bought 2 conditioners and 1 shampoo to use during the trip.
Now, I’m 1/2 way through the shampoo, and almost done with the 2nd conditioner. I LOVE this stuff.
I know it’s filled with harsh ingredients, but the shampoo thoroughly cleans my hair and scalp and the conditioner effectively gives me enough slip to not die during detangling time!
Plus it smells heavenly.
Will I buy it here in the states, no, I’ll experiment with other brands, but in August when I go back to Mexico I’ll definitely stock up since it’s so cheap.
Sorry for the late post today folks.
On Monday night I got about 3 hours of fitful sleep because I had to be up at 3:30 for a photoshoot with my favorite photographer Hydra. It was out on Fire Island, the first time I had ever been. I wanted to get some sunrise shots.
He picked me up at 4:00 a.m. for the almost 2 hour drive out from Manhattan. There’s a mile long walk from the point where you park the car to the beach we were shooting on. We walked on this narrow wooden path and saw cool stuff along the way like this little guy….ok BIG guy:
And when we finally got to the beach….everything was GREY and MISTY!!! I was getting kinda upset because I thought our shoot would be ruined. Deep down I really wanted to get a silhouette shot for my portfolio. Then the sun peeked out!
And hector grabbed his camera and we got a few shots, like this one he sent to me last night
that I’m super loving right now:
So as soon as those few shots were captured, the clouds rolled in, and added to the foggy mist already present, made horrendous shoot conditions…but we shot anyway. I’m anxious to see how Hector edits the drab grey colorless shots we got into something beautiful.
Oh but wait, once we walked the mile back to the car, the fog was gone, the clouds were sparse and the sun was making everything beautiful and warm. WTF!? Just our luck! That sun was a meanie.
We came back to the city in the afternoon and I was thinking “Yay I get to sleep till forever…” but then I remembered a friend was in town from FL so I went out to a late lunch with her. Totally forgot to take pics
Oh and did some minor shopping with her and her awesome cousin (I only got a lil necklace that was marked down from $25 to $8.97 but then rang up as $5.49 at the register!….so that barely counts as shopping…right?!)
Came home pooped but couldn’t get to sleep cuz John wasn’t in the bed!
(I hate when he’s in the bed cuz he takes up all the space and elbows me in the head, but when he’s not there it feels so wrong!)
So I tossed and turned till what felt like a hundred o’clock and finally fell out and didn’t wake up till 11:00 a.m.! That’s CRAZY late for me. I actually considered taking a picture of the clock lol because I never wake up that late unless I have the flu or something.
My body wakes me naturally some time between 7 and 8 no matter what time I go to sleep. I guess I was compensating for the 3 hours the night before.
So anyway, it’s a late post, but I wanted to give you all a hump-day view to enjoy!
Hello Mr. Reggie Bush!!
