Weekend Recap

So I did not go to MAC! Had too much to do at home, I swear my house looked like a tornado had gone thru it. I spent Sat morning cleaning up all the mess. Then I took D to the Fall Festival at our town's library and it was nice! They had pumpkins for the kids to decorate, face painting, cool ballons, graftti art table and they also had a live band playing. They also served apple cider and handed out cake. Daniel and I had a great time.

The elephant in the room

I am in a slump, I have been going faithfully to the gym for a little over a month and don't see a change in my body or my stamina, in fact I feel that I've gained weight!

Now let me start by saying that I do eat healthy throughout the week but on the weekends I do fall off and have a slice of pizza and wine! I really want to lose this excess weight but it's so hard now, I lost 32 pounds for my wedding in such a healthy way, however I am starting to feel like I won't be able to achieve it this time around. I was 22 and had all the time in the world to focus on losing the weight and on planning my wedding. This time around I have to focus on so many things at once, I feel that it really isn't a priority.

Until I see pictures of myself and can truly see the difference of the past 2 years! Why isn't it my priority? When all I hear on a constant basis from my Husband is that I am gaining weight. Then anger and blame take over me.. How did I let this happen? When am I going to stop? and my response is "I don't ever want to take a picture of myself again"! Why am I ignoring it? Why can't I appreciate what my Husband has to say? I think it's because I know that I am overweight and don't know how to deal with it.

I guess I just needed to vent. I am going to start taking Phentermine which is for people with BMI over 25. I have heard great reviews for the pill. It is prescribed to Obese patients, and it has some side effects but the results are amazing and My Dr. has said I'am in great health, just need to lose weight.

My Baby is a Star

Hi Ladies! I know I haven't posted a look on here in a while. I did my sis in law's makeup on Sunday for a wedding she was attending. She took pics once she sends them to me I will post.

Back to the subject on my title... a good friend of mine Karen works at Scholastic, basically her co-worker needed a boy between the ages of 4-7 for a Better TV Segment. I got the email and replied saying I can have D do the segment. Karen then put me in contact with her co-worker who set everything up. The segment was taped on Aug. 4th and the topic was "Kids pick the book" and D was interviewed about one of his favorite books "Fox in Socks" by Dr. Seuss. He did great! Here is a pic of him at the interview.

I finally got the link yesterday. My Husband makes a cameo in the first 3 seconds holding a Book for D. Please copy and paste the link to view it.

Then I got more good news they want D to come back for another segment this time he'll be on the TODAY SHOW!!! It is scheduled for Oct. 19th. Once I get more details I will post. What a great opportunity/experience for him, I of course appreciate the experience way more than he does right now but he will when he's older.

As a child I wanted to be on Romper Room or Sesame Street. I love that we can experience this together and that he actually likes it! It would be hard if he didn't like it.

Who knows my baby may be the next Brad Pitt.. well he'll be the Dominican/Colombian/Chilean with a NY state of mind ..Brad.. LMAO

I promise to do a look this weekend!

Hello Darlings...

Planning on doing a look tonight!

I've been so busy this past week.. My son started school and as soon as I get home from work its a race to get his homework done, take him a shower, read him a story, put him to bed , fold laundry, prepare my gym bag, prepare his lunch, layout his clothes for the next day and clean whatever mess my dear husband left in the kitchen and bedroom, finally jump in the shower and watch my DVR shows. IT'S SUCH A RAT RACE.

I was taking Daniel a shower last night and he is climbing on the bathtub balancing himself..I tell him to stop it because he may fall. His response "I am not going to fall I am a professional". The things this kid comes up with crack me up!

Janice and I are going to the Estee Lauder Sale this Sat. and I can't wait cause I get to fill up my third palette! Yippeee

I am also going to do a bridal makeup trial on Janice this Friday!

What look would you like to see? I have to learn how to post vids on YT!!

8 years ago

I made it in to the WTC Chambers St Station at 8:15 am. I NEVER got to work that early. I went to grab breakfast at Fine and Shaprio and my co-worker Judy was there and she said "why don't we just eat here?" I said " Sure, we have plenty of time". We had our breakfast and at 8:45 threw out our garbage and headed towards the electric staircase by Duane Reade in order to walk thru Tower 1 and into the World Financial Center. When we got to the staircase we were greeted by a woman screaming "A BOMB A BOMB A BOMB" and then the lady threw her self down those electric staircases. Pure Shock as we could see the sunny sky grow grey. We then walked towards the Vesey St. Exit by the Borders Book Shop. We were told to wait about 3 minutes which seemed like 3 hours.

We managed to get out of the WTC mall in one piece stepping over metal and debris to the corner of Vesey St. and Church St. I looked up as soon as we got across the street and then the second plane hit and I can't find the words to explain how that BOOM sounded or how the heat of the fire was felt instantly..I get tears and goose bumps every time I close my eyes and relive it, feeling was just so surreal. I saw people with injuries, some lose their minds in tears, screaming and throwing themselves under cars. You don't realize what you will do in a situation like that unitl you are in it. I took hold of my co-worker Judy's hand and started walking ( in 5 inch heels) and did not look BACK. We made it to the front of Pace University right by the Brooklyn Bridge and noticed other colleagues of Merrill Lynch that were all going to walk over the bridge into Brooklyn I asked them to take Judy with them since they all lived in Brooklyn. I had to make my way to my mother's job on 35th and 8th, I knew she was going crazy not knowing where I was. I walked across the street and heard someone call out my name.. It was Angelique one of my best friends. I am so thankful that Judy and Angie were with me on that horrible Tuesday morning.

I don't watch TV today nor do I listen to the list of names, it's just so heartbreaking to know my name could have been on that list.

My prayers are with those who lost a loved one.

Never Forget.

So lately I am in love with Bobby Brown's tinted base it has spf 15 and comes in all shades I use medium tint and it keeps my face smooth and silky and doesn't clog my pores or feel too heavy on my skin. I picked it up at the cco a while back.
