Updates…

Hello Guys!! I didn’t mean to neglect my dear blog. I really didn’t…I have been extremely busy. I hope you all had a good week. I wanted to give a few updates about what’s been going on with me. 

As I said in a previous post, I had the privilege of working on a photoshoot for Essence magazine back in November. I did the Makeup for a wonderful lady called Yvonne for the “Fit and Fab”article. I was impressed with her dedication and success with losing weight. It motivated me to start making some changes in my life as well.  

The article is now out in the March 2010 Issue (with First Lady, Michelle and President Barak Obama on the cover). Please pick up your copy and spread the word about PINK DIAMONDS by Tiwa Lawrence.

I also mentioned in a past entry that I would be discussing my skin care regime and my natural hair story, but I put a hold on those entries, because some things have since changed in my routine and I wanted to make sure the results are perfected (well perfected for me, lol) before I talked about it.  

I really do love each and every one of you. I appreciate everyone who continues to visit my blog. I would love to receive feedback on what you would like to see featured on future blog entries. 

And like always, I look forward to hearing from you.   

Thots,

What do you LOVE???

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I thought it would be nice to talk about what we love about our faces and bodies.  

Each individual woman’s body demands to be accepted on its own terms. 

-Gloria Steinem    

Many times as women we tend to focus on what we don’t like about our bodies or facial features…but today I wanted us to embrace what we do love. Expressing our feelings about the things we love about ourselves is not vain. It’s a way of empowering ourselves and embracing the positive things about us.  

Ok… so let me start, lol. The things I love about my face are: My lips, skin and some days, I really like my eyes.   

What are the features you love about your face or your body? What do you like to play up with makeup or clothes?   

TIP of the Week: Why not try really hot RED lips on Valentine’s day, like this beautiful model below.  I used MAC lipstick in MAC Red and clear lipgloss to achieve this look. You can tone down red lips with a neutral lipliner.

 Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Random Question…

Hey guys…I am so bored today.  Which generally pushes me over edge and next thing I know I am in a silly mood, lol.

So, on that note…I thought why not ask a question that just popped into my mind.

What do you think of matching one’s makeup exactly to one’s outfit?

My personal opinion is to “DO YOU” !!! If someone wants to wear a bright yellow sundress and bright yellow eye shadow, why not? 😀

Any thoughts?

iPhone vs. BlackBerry

This is random, I know 🙂

If you had to choose between these two phones, which one would you pick and why? Thanks in advance for your feedback.

The Apple iPhone

 or

 

The BlackBerry® Bold

 EDIT: I ended up getting an iPhone and it was the best decision I ever made…phone wise 😉

I Need a New Camera… Pls help!!!

Hello All,

I need your help. I need a new camera ASAP. The only thing I need the camera to do is:

1) Take great before and after pictures.

2) It should have the ability to create clear videos.

3) Since I will be using it mostly for my personal use, I don’t need anything that is too complicated.

4) I would like the price to be reasonable as well.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

I look forward to reading your feedback.

Thots,

Tiwa
