Battle of the Strands 2013

This announcement is huge! The butterflies in my stomach have not left since I found out...

I have a fabulous friend who does fabulous hair. She also plays an integral part on my team for on-location events, weddings & photo shoots. I trust her with both mine and my client's lives. She does some of the most beautiful, intricate updo's I've ever seen. She's also like a braiding genius ninja. Give her your hair and some time & she will bring the fire.

Any who, her salon got picked for the Orlando Qualifier! So, we will be competing at the Premiere Beauty Show in Orlando on June 1st. We're registered as "Fabulous Hair by Egla".

It's such an honor that she invited me to be a part of her team. It's also going to be like the first time I might pop up on TV, along with my non-existent Michelle Obama Arms. So do you think we should stroll in atop Mr.Ed, with a blinged out bayonet in hand? One ponders.

For the past couple of years, I've really been focusing on my writing & to let my work speak for itself. Seriously, no one will read your beauty blog if they think you don't know what you're talking about. Unlocking what's inside my brain and actually penning it on paper is what I've been doing while my daughter's been converting from baby to toddler. Believe it or not, I do have a business plan. It's never really ever been about me, though. It's always been all about my love for makeup and making women feel better about themselves through the power of makeup. If slapping on a couple of coats of mascara in the morning can give you a more optimistic outlook of your life, then rock on with your bad self. Mean bosses, judgy boyfriends & haters in general exist in this world. It's a fact. Imagine if all the negativity could be turned into positivity. Surely then I could ride unicorns on rainbows paths that fart glitter instead of riding gas guzzlers amidst rush hour traffic with some dude in my rear view who's clearly a hemorrhoid by following too closely. This is why I idolize Kandee Johnson. I've been watching her since her beginning. Plus, Kim Vo is one of the judges?! Shut the front door. Did I die and go to heaven? Quick! Someone pinch me.

So, am I nervous? Do I even think I'm good enough to compete? Within every human being lives a demeaning devil. Personally, mine lives on my shoulder who whispers absolute sweet nothings into my ear. Wow, am I eager to listen to his negativity. However, I've got some amazing friends in my life. Without them & their fab advice my own self esteem would be crap. Honestly.

My bestie said yesterday, "Why are you so nervous?! Don't you think it's your time to shine? You're super talented with makeup. You're personable & funny. Now go get it, girl!"
Fine then. I'll bring it.

In fact, Egla & I are going to bring it because IT'S ALREADY BEEN BROUGHTEN!

Heh. Heh.
