Today marks 20years since my baby sister was taken by CANCER! and as any of you know who have lost a love one, the pain & the emptiness still exists! CANCER forever changed my family. There is a empty spot in my heart since the day my sister died. She was only 4 years old, only 21 days after her fourth birthday. My sister was a fighter, she was a strong little girl! I remember that she would endure all these new procedures with out a complaint. How do these kids to it?! How do their little bodies go through this pain??!! I was only 12 when she passed away and always in my heart I have know I have wanted to do something in her honor, something that could make a difference! I still don't know what that calling is but I am working on a few.:) I just want the awful thing called CANCER to not exist!! I want for childhood CANCER to disappear from our planet! My heart breaks every-time I see kids that are battling this awful disease! I feel helpless and it hits a horrible spot in my heart.

Cancer Does Not Discriminate!

Whether you are 2 or 92, cancer affects us all. Whether you are black or white, red, brown or, yellow, Cancer does not discriminate! Everyone is susceptible to cancer... you... your spouse... cancer doesn't care if you are rich, poor or somewhere in between. This is my lovely baby sister....

Today my baby sister would have been 24years old. As anyone knows who has lost a close loved one, it is the hardest thing a person goes through in this lifetime. My heart will never be the same. I have a empty hole in it. When she died she took a little bit of each of us. My sister had Neuroblastoma, and it took her at the young age of 4! Years have past and we still spend her birthday remembering her and remembering the things she would say. :) Today I spent the day talking to her to my kids who are now 12 and 5. My daughter says "Mama, I want to meet her." I tell her "We will when we go to heaven." I am so thankful to God that my children are in good health and spirits.


It is amazing how one 6 letter word can instill fear into thousands of people. It touches all of our lives at some point. Whether it’s a family member, a friend, or a co-worker… At some point we all know someone who is fighting to see that next birthday. And cancer doesn’t discriminate, either. Young or old; male or female; rich or poor; tall or short; athletic or couch-potato; mother, father or child… It affects people of all ages and all walks of life. Myself, I have seen co-workers fight cancer and live to see another birthday. I have had 2 aunts fight breast cancer and leave this world too early. It has touched my grandparents, friends’ families, and acquaintances. Here’s praying we all see more birthdays
& In memory of my baby sister Vanessa

Metallic Pants....Would you wear them?

It was a trend in 2004, But it didn't catch on... It was a trend in 2004, But it didn't catch on... Now in Fall 2012, once again a trend? I love metallic, I love anything that glitters or shines so I would consider these in a black metallic jean or in gray metallic. I think I would pair them with a solid top and minimal accessories. :) I loving this trend!;)

MAC: Spring and Summer Lingers into Fall:

Spring and Summer Lingers into Fall

MAC Cremesheen + Pearl is a new collection now available online (and will hit stores on August 9th) that features eight lipsticks (all with Cremesheen finishes) and seven Cremesheen Glasses. All fifteen lip products are new, but here’s the surprising news: they’re also permanent! This post features these four lipstick shades: Coral Bliss (frosted light coral), Japanese Maple (frosted light beige), Peach Blossom (frosted cool nude), and Pink Pearl Pop (frosted midtonal pink).

* Coral Bliss is a soft pink coral with a natural sheen. It yielded mostly opaque color coverage. MAC Ever Hip is slightly pinker and has a glossier/wetter look. MAC So Vain is darker. MAC Razzledazzler is slightly darker and less pink. NARS Bolero is lighter and matte in finish. Burberry Devon Sunset is darker and less pink. MAC Cut a Caper is slightly pinker.

* Japanese Maple is a subdued beige nude with semi-opaque color coverage. MAC 3N is slightly pinker. Make Up For Ever #N40 is pinker. Tom Ford Blush Nude is similar but has a creamier look, giving it a thicker and lighter appearance. MAC Woo Me is pinker. MAC Naked Bliss is cooler-toned. Maybelline Born With It is similar but a smidgen pinker.

* Peach Blossom is a soft rose pink with semi-sheer color coverage. It just barely has a cool-tone to it, and I don’t know if this is what most would conjure up when they hear “cool nude.” Chanel Emprenite is lighter. Guerlani Rose Ensoleille is pinker. Bobbi Brown Miami Coral is more opaque. Chanel Flirt is similar but a smidgen pinker. Guerlain Rose Desir is very comparable in color.

* Pink Pearl Pop is a subtly blue-toned medium pink with soft lilac-pink shimmer. It has semi-opaque color coverage. This shade did not apply as evenly as the other three. MAC Venus is darker and not blue-based. Becca Valentina has more rose in it. Le Metier de Beaute Fiji is cooler-toned. Chanel Paradis is similar. Chanel Belgravia is more intense. Revlon Carnation has a stronger blue undertone.

1 Night Highlights!
I was ordering some items from Sephora.com. I came across this...It's temporary hair color for ONE night! Last year I attended the Las Vegas Hair Show and purchased a few bottles of color but this seems cooler since it has a comb...and that's the reason I didn't like the ones I bought since...you would have to have a steady hand. ;) I don't acquire that talent. hee hee
What it is: A crème-mousse formula that instantly creates vibrant, professional-looking highlights that wash out with one shampoo. What it does: Hit the town with gorgeous, fresh-out-of-the-salon highlights and then wash them out next day. Apply the mineral-rich cream with the easy, no-mess applicator for an instant burst of blonde, auburn, or caramel in your hair. The quick-dry formula won’t flake or rub off, yet it disappears in one wash. Each kit contains up to 20 applications and a bonus travel-size of the Bamboo Luminous Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. What it is formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Sulfates - Synthetic Dyes - Phthalates - GMOs - Triclosan

::My New Obsession::
Double Wear Headwrap Necklaces
These are the funniest headbands! I love how the are versatile. I think they look so cute! I bought some at Target the other day and the first day I wore them a few people asked where I bought them. And for about $6, it is a good hair accessory. :) And they also have these: Double Wear Elastic Bracelet
Hair Accessory + Jewelry In One! Goody DoubleWear™ is the first hair elastic to disguise itself as a bracelet! This is the only elastic designed to be stylish in your hair and on your wrist. Double Wear ponytailers feature black elastics accented with silver and gold charms - letting you stay true to your look when it’s time to let your hair down. I especially like these, since I am always wearing my hair ties around my wrist. I have to have some on hand especially for my daughter's hair. :) *all photo's courtesy of Goody. Have a great day! x

My Favorite Shoes::

I thought I'd share these shoes that I have been loving...I just wish there was a ZARA store close by so that I could try them on and see the fit...Don't you just hate buying shoes that you think might fit good, but you take them home or you order online and you have exchange or return cause they don't fit or feel right??? Wish all shoes were true to size! But I have had my eye on these, but they don't have any in my size but they are so cute! I have always loved clear heels. In one of my sketches that I have, I have a shoe that has a clear heel that you can open and place items in, so that you can change out to match your outfits. Wouldn't that be cool? ;0)

Here is a picture so you can admire them too! Enjoy!

Here is a link just in case you love them as much as I do and your a lucky size 7!

I was contacted by Hair Flairs to do a review on a new product. And I am completely excited! It's a new product called "Color Rub" You add these vibrant colors to your hair and the color is locked into your hair with a few steps. What seems more interesting is that the colors looks so vibrant. It is suppose to show up on even dark hair which is most impressive! I can't wait to try this out and let you guys know how it works!

::Whitney Houston Will Be Missed:::

I was shocked to hear that Whitney has passed on...She was so talented, and every time she sang she captivated her fans. Such a tragic and sad loss for the whole music industry and her fans & family.

One of my favorite songs she sang was: I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)

May she rest in peace....
