New Year Update…

Happy, Happy, Happy New year!!!

I feel blessed to have made it to 2012.  Saying I have missed blogging is an understatement, but I have been soo busy with work, that I have not been able to find a balance with work, life and blogging.

That brings me to my blogging goals for 2012. I started off this year evaluating what direction I wanted to take this blog. When I first started this blog, I really wanted the blog to be the perfect venue to let my ideas run free, share information and to meet like-minded people.  Through out the past 2 years, I have been able to do that, but I think I could have done a better job with meeting my initial goals.

So, this year I am on a mission to interact more with the blogging community, work on posting more of my work and sharing  even more ideas and information. It might take me a little while to get back running, but please bear with me.

I have some L.I.F.T posts, bridal posts from weddings I did in 2011 and Jan 2012 and some beauty tips coming up.

And because a blog post is useless without an image 😛

Below is a sneak peak at one of my “most favoritest” brides in the whole wide world, Temi at her traditional engagement 🙂

Beauty Inside and Out…

“It’s time to have a marked difference of appearance. Shine boldly beautiful from the inside out because of what is inside of you”

                     -Inspirational Words of the day from Cindy

I am truly a believer that what’s going on inside can sometimes manifest physically. I have been really busy and stressed lately, but I know I am blessed. I just have to put things in perspective. Sometimes, when I am not feeling soo good, the act of putting on makeup helps to prepare me for the day. In a way, it is like getting ready to face any “battles” that may occur throughout the day. But some days, makeup just doesn’t do it… that is why one has to make sure your internal well-being is addressed and nurtured at all times. One’s appearance to the world stems from within. So, face today knowing the world can see how beautiful you are with or without makeup.

Random: I was looking through some of my old archives of images from my past photoshoots and I came across this image. Ashlee is such a beautiful woman. In this image, you see her was making a funny face while I was fixing her Gele. But I still think her beauty is reflected, inside and out. I love a person with a great sense of humor. Seeing this image today, made me laugh all over again. I wanted to share this image to let anyone who is reading this know; that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and your beauty mostly manifest from within.
