Wednesday, August 31, 2011

It was a monumental day in Houston Hip Hop yesterday as Mayor Annise Parker honored Bun-B and presented him with a proclamation. Team Trill was inside City Hall in support of Bun and The Trillionaires, I love the fact that no matter where Bun goes he always remembers Pimp C.... I had a chance to interview him afterwards. Congrats Bun!

Q&A with Celebrity Make Up Artist- Jackie Gomez

Celebrity Make Up Artist Jackie Gomez, has a bright future ahead of her. Being one of the top Latina Make-up artist in the industry, recently tied the night with her long time beau and working with the likes of  Beyonce, Solange, Marissa Miller & Lily Aldrige she is proving with determination & a passion you can live your dreams. Jackie, has worked with many celebrity's and even has traveled the world with some.

Q & A with Jackie begins now:

What is your must- have beauty product for the working woman on the go?

One of my favorite products for women on the go is Fusion Beauty's GlowFusion Bronzer as you can use it all year round to achieve a natural glow no matter how much time you have in your hands.

How does it feel to represtent the Hispanic culture being one of the well known celebrity makeup artists?
I feel extremely proud of being a successful Latina makeup artist in this competitive industry and I love being recognized for embracing my Colombian/Mexican background

What product do you think is essential to create a glamorous red carpet look?

The secret to achieving a glamorous red carpet look is to start with beautiful glowing skin and one of my must haves to achieve this look is the Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Powder Foundation.

Having mascara running down our face when we get into the pool is definitely not a fashion statement, which water-proof mascara do you recommend?

Definitely try my favorite Glameyes waterproof mascara by Rimmel London as it is the best long lasting and smudge-proof product in the market.

Which celebrity have you had the best experience working with and why?
I truly love all of my clients as they are all unique and beautiful in their own way, but I've had the best experience with Beyonce traveling the world with her team.

What are the top 5 essentials that a girl should always have in her makeup bag?

#1-Tinted moisturizer with like SPF #2- Mascara #3- Blush Bronzer Duo #4-moisturizing lipstick #5- Waterproof Eyeliner

7) What does the future hold for you? Should we expect any major projects from you, such as having your own makeup line?

I want to keep collaborating with the industry's top cosmetic brands and eventually launch my own makeup line.

Marco Antonio Solis & Ana Gabriel concert

Monday, August 22, 2011

I had a blast at the Ana Gabriel & Marco Antonio Solis concert along with my friend Roxxi Jane, who invited me. We had 5th row Center seats, which made the show that much better! We initially were taking our mothers because they are both fans of theirs and it was a ladies night out...turned out our mothers couldn't make it so we went together which was still a fun ladies night! We walked into the Toyota Center, bought a drink and while doing so, we heard Ana Gabriel on stage, just hearing her voice and the song, both Roxxi and I literally started tearing up thinking of our lovely mothers. It was such a great show, great energy and awesome time going down our musical memory lane.

Wendy Williams-"Say It Like You Mean It" Tour-Houston

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Anyone that knows me, knows I love me some Wendy Williams! I'm not your "loving her after being on tv" girl either I've been a Wendy listener for a long time. I remember not being able to listen to the radio when I worked at an office job and sneaking on the internet risking my job to listen to her radio show. Her show was always entertaining, informative and just fun!  She definitely is a major inspiration to me and someone that I look up to in the journalism world and as a women in general. So that's why when I found out she was coming to Houston for her "Say It Like You Mean It Tour" I had to be there!

J.Lo and Marc Split Months Ago?

Sunday, August 14, 2011

According to Rob Shuter who is an AOL Gossiper, My friend in 'my head' Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were split up months before the story was made public. Would a superstar couple really be so manipulative as to save the public announcement about the dissolution of their marriage just so that one could wind up on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine? Wellll.... Yeah … according to Shuter, that would be the case. Shuter says that an insider tells him J.Lo and Marc actually broke up months ago, despite they only revealed the split in July. Find out why ....

Simply FAB!!

Friday, August 12, 2011

SimplyFab is an online shop that specializes in making custom phone cases. I recently had the pleasure of interviewing the fabulous owner, Shaun . Inspired by all things that bling and have rhinestones, Shaun turned her gaudy obsession into a business by first making phone cases for her friends. Then her friends wanted phone cases for their friends, and then their friends wanted some for their friends….and so the word of mouth spread. That is when she decided to take it to the next level with her very own website. Her customers are women between the ages of 14-50 that love to stand out from the crowd, and like it to be known that they enjoy pretty things, sparkle, the latest trends and just being a girly girl.

Everybody Loves HOT Pink!

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Great News in the Beauty Blender world! The cute little sponge that you probably have been seeing in many magazine beauty articles has been granted the official rights by the U.S. Patent office to use the "hot pink" color on any make up applicator sponge here after. This is awesome, especially since there are a growing number of sponges that are using the same pink.
