Hey everyone!

Once Labour Day hits and it’s September, summer quickly fades! 🙁

It also means that it is New York Fashion Week again! There are even more people on the streets, in taxis, eating out and the city is buzzing.  I hope to find out about any new makeup products being used backstage.

This is also the weekend for the Essence Street Style Block Party in DUMBO, Brooklyn.  I promised myself to go to as many events this summer and I think I did a pretty good job!  It’s one of the last events happening while the weather is still warm so I need to get my las’ lap in 🙂

Finally, I have to mention 9/11 on this day.  I was living in NYC at that time and I remember it quite vividly.  Thoughts and prayers to those lost……

What are you doing this weekend?

Laters,

She loves combining her in-depth, practical knowledge with her chemist/scientific training to make your cosmetic choices fun and easy. She likes to take the guesswork out of beauty, separate the hype from what really works, to help you bring out the most beautiful you! She loves colour, and makeup, and she has been natural for years! She also loves great food, culture, sports and laid back vibes!
