I have been sick again with a sore throat and lost my voice for a few days but I am finally feeling better. I know I shouldn't but I just had the most amazing coffee. It is called Intelligentista. This stuff smells and tastes soooo good. Mmmm. Hopefully it makes me more intelligent. Haa haa. Just kidding. Anyway, I have exciting news... The contract with the small part-time job I was doing ended yesterday so I am now free to start this makeup and tanning biz full-time. Yesterday I got a call from a friend who owns a salon who needs me to do makeup for a wedding in three weeks since her makeup artist quit. I am so excited and have a lot of things to do in preparation. So today I will clean and organize my kit. Yippeee. It's like catching up with an old friend. I know, I am strange but some people will understand. I am also busy getting a domain name and business cards since I will be setting up the web site soon. Off for a run and then errands.

So I have been feeling a little overwhelmed by this whole process of starting my business again but yesterday I had the great pleasure of chatting with friends who are very supportive and inspiring. So with this said, I have put together a few plans for some great makeup looks that I will be working on in the next few weeks. One look is a very earthy Fall/Autumn "mother earth" look. This may sound crazy but I have a model who is perfect for this and I am really excited to see how this will turn out. I will post photos as soon as I complete it. On another note, I got the Jetta Wagon in dark silver and I cannot decide if I want my husband's car or mine. He really wants my car but I am not sure about his. He has a Toyota Venza with no sunroof and cloth seats and the Jetta has a HUGE sunroof and "pleather" seats but I like the look of the Venza better. Ugh.. I sound like a selfish brat but I need to make a decision soon. Anyhoo. Off to return my Audi today since the lease ended. Boooo.. I will miss that car. We had great memories!!

Well, here I am in the first stages of getting back out there as a makeup artist after taking some much needed time to adjust to being a mommy. I am now working on recruiting models and searching for photographers and getting ready to set up my portfolio. Today I am pulling inspiration from magazines but I think I may go out for a walk and get inspiration from outside. The most inspiration I have is from Yo Gabba Gabba and ya know that just may work for a whimsical look. One of the first things I am doing today is shopping for a car but I am still hesitant about the Jetta Wagon so I may go drive one again to make sure I like it but I am still unsure about the color. I think I am settling on white since I have had black my entire life.
