Touching Thursdays: What Have I Done For Me Lately?

Hey ladies!!!! How are you doing today?

Did anyone watch Sister Act 2? If so, can you remember when they sang that song "What have you done for me lately?"...although in this case, we are asking ourselves the question....but that's where it stemmed from.

I battled, well not really... that's a strong word, with what to write about today. I was blank! (Hmmm....writer's block?) But as I sat here it just came to me, I should write about taking care of ourselves. In my last post I spoke about how working for 12 hours each day made me of little use to also meant some crazy eating times, which if this had continued for another week I might've gotten sick! Now don't get me wrong, I'm very appreciative that they provided breakfast, lunch and snacks, but the actual time that I got around to eating is a whole different story! I might've taken on too much when it wasn't necessary but I believe it the time, i guess. No regrets!

So, now that it's over, I'm reflecting and thinking do we take care of ourselves enough? It's only if we are in perfect health and shape, mentally, emotionally and physically that we can bring any form of joy or help to anyone else. So today, ask yourself this question, what have I done for me lately? If you can't recall, then please, do something for yourself asap! Pamper yourself a little, give yourself a facial, (recession in mind or I might've said have a spa day), I dunno give yourself a lovely pedicure or manicure, tell yourself, "Self, I love you, you are the bestest self in the whole world!" :) That oughta getcha goin'!

The last thing I did for myself was get those cutesy sandals and the 2 nail polishes and something else which I'm so excited to blog about (soooon) ! Alrighty, let me hear what you've done or are going to do for yourself!!

Oh....Usain has done it again! I'm so proud to be a Jamaican!!!! 2 di werl'!!!!

One love my beauties!

NOTD & Cutesy Sandals!

Hi hotties! I know it's been forever, I even missed Touching Thursdays last week....but with my 12 hr work days last week, it was almost impossible to get anything done....I was of no use to anyone except the models haha. WOW, that sounds awful, I'm sorry hubby, you were so patient and gracious throughout this whole thing. I love you!!

I got a beautiful set of girls to work with, I can't post any pics yet until the show airs, bummer, I mean, 3 weeks of creating different looks on 7 girls everyday, sometimes twice a day, really got my creative juices going! I came up with some of the most gorgeous looks I've ever done....and they really loved my work, and had complete faith in me. One gorgeous model, said that she doesn't even need a mirror when I do her face, she just trusts me that much, now that makes me feel GOOD!

Now for the goodies....I got a ton of NYX nailpolishes, i'll NOTD them as I get around to them, about 6 in all, and 2 China Glazes. I have always loved China Glaze, but I'm barely in the area of the store that sells them anymore, but I went there yesterday and it wasn't hard to choose these 2, since I'm loving these bright colors, and the rest were just pinks....n God knows I've got a ton of those!

ANYWHO, here they are :) (L-R: Passion in the Pacific, Sexy in the City) Obviously I'm wearing Passion in the pacific on my finger nails...i love it so much!

Touching Thursdays: When You Least Expect It!

Hey dolls,

How are you? I'm so tired, doing some really looooonng hours for this project I'm doing makeup for...fortunately, it's a good experience and it came at a time when I needed it! I'm really grateful and thankful for it!

As a result, I'm almost knocking the laptop over falling asleep hahaha. On another note, I recorded a trance song last night, and I mean, it's only because I put myself out there on youtube, and a local DJ heard my songs and sent me the track to listen to why I got this chance. This was last Thursday, when I was writing about believing in yourself and all the drama at the job. The track came when I least expected it, but right on time, I was in a space mentally and emotionally that allowed me to bring forth words the song. I'll let y'all hear it once it's done!!!! Sometimes, no everytime, I find that this is how it works, unless you are willing to drop certain guards and put your talents out there, how will you be discovered?

When was the last time something truly unexpected happened for you just when you needed it most?
