What Are You Working On Now?

 Hi ya Gorgeous,

This year is fast on it's way to a close. How are you doing? Are you still pushing towards goals you set back in January? I'm sharing a video and it's what I've been working on this past year. Wow. Funny how when you do a lil' bit all the time, how it adds up!  Keep going Beauty! You got this!

This video is a cross over from my other channel - it's my current producer and director reel that I have been using to book some new gigs.
It took me a long time. I would say, almost two years to finally make peace with being behind the camera as both makeup artist and director.  That crossover firmly happened with the making of the World Is Still Spinning music video for Sedona Skies band in Austin Texas.

Yes, I still beauty blog, and do breakthrough events for women empowerment, though I just do it around my filming schedule now.

I say all of this to encourage you - that when you are transitioning it can be messy, confusing, and trust me, it's going to take longer than you think, so please be kind and have patience with yourself!

Thank you for being a part of the cross over with me!
MakeupUniversity and Lions Rest have lots to get started on for 2019!
Stay tuned!

Movember - Ways to Help Others While Helping Yourself with J Paul Skincare

Hi ya Gorgeous,

Did you know that the month of November is to men's health awareness what October is to women's health and breast cancer awareness? It's called, Movember!

For men, Movember is about growing out a mustache, or maybe even a beard to raise awareness about men's health issues that normally don't get a lot of discussion through out the year such as prostate cancer and men's suicide rates or even rarer known health issues such as EDS.

I've written about the genius of the all in one shaver from J Paul Skincare before and today I'm revisiting the products because J Paul Skincare is doing a major fundraiser for the Ehlers-Danlos Society during the Movember movement.  (p.s. That shaver is with me as I travel!)

J Paul offers a wide variety of skincare systems for men and women, to choose from. You can get a basic 3 step skincare system of wash, scrub and shave or if you have some signs of aging, consider getting the anti-aging line, which I am using in the photos.

Help J Paul Support the Cause in #Movember!! Through the month of November, J Paul will donate 10% of all sales to the Ehlers-Danlos Society. Ehlers-Danlos Society helps raise awareness and funds for connective tissue genetic disorder EDS. For information about EDS and the Ehlers-Danlos Society visit 

Now it's easy to get in on the support by purchasing your own skincare, or a Christmas gift of skincare for the men in your life and when you order in November for giving in December you actually give twice because J Paul Skincare is donating this month to help research and treatment for those with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

What A Guy Thinks of Dove Men+Care - How to Prep for the Holidays Ahead of Time

Hi ya Gorgeous,

Thanksgiving is two weeks away! Are you ready? Are you doing any and all pre-preparations that you can to make the day go smoother and have less time prepping and more time with friends and family? 

My family used to have great big celebrations with lots of extended families and cousins from the third bloodline joining in. These events were huge! Now, no one gets together! It's just the core family and even then - we split it up with travel to here and there. I do like how we do our holidays now though I sure do miss the old days and big family gatherings were the cooking starts the night before!

So in preparation for holiday travel and having everything pre-packed and ready to be dropped into the car at a moments notice, my son has joined me to do some first impression and reviews of the samples that Dove Men+Care sent. Thank you Dove!

Enjoy the video below and let me know in the comments what your favorite memory is of past holidays!
