Mermaid Gypsy

I've loved mermaids since a child. Guess that explains my fascination with blue/teal hair.
Here are the pinterest pics that inspired my change in hair color. 
Hope you like the outcome, if not its cool, because I LOVE IT! <3

Sexy Hair had a booth at GenBeauty this passed weekend-

I dont know if I say this enough but I LOVE my job! I've had so many opportunities and things are only going to get better, positive thinking & fingers crossed!

Gracie Awards 2013

My experience at The Gracie Awards yesterday went a little like this....
Some of the Corp girls and I working the booth and showing the atendees our fab line.
Sexy Hair was one of the sponsors and everyone who attended
went home with a bag full of product :)
Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars
Going to be honest- I have NO idea who she is BUT
I give her BEST DRESSED!
She looks her age and that mix and match, LOVE!!!
I wasnt big on the cut out of the dress, but it grew on me.
And those heels, WANT! She looked amazing and I loved
her down to earth personality.

Amy Poehler
Must say her acceptance speech was hilarious!
Of course I took pics of the food! hahaha
Look how pretty my salad was! I didnt even know
where to start.

The main dish was delish.
Steak was way bloodier than I'd usually like
but it was good, the gravy helped me not look
at the redness of the meat. lol

Sexy Hair Vice President Jennifer Parks
giving Guiliana Rancic The Sexy Hair
Caring is Sexy Award

 Guiliana's Acceptance speech-
<3 her bob cut!

I cant say how appreciative I am of being able to attend this event. Being in a room full of strong, hard working women who have done so much and are being recognized was quit the experience. Reporters and documentary journalist who risk their lives to cover stories and get their messages across were so inspiring. Its crazy to think how small of a role women have had in the past and in some parts of the world still do. I was touched by the terrifying stories some of them had gone through and it makes me think how similar all women can be no matter what part of the world they are from.

FIDM Interview

My FIDM Interview is today!
Im a bit nervous, but only because I dont know what to expect.
The admissions process is a bit of work but once I got started I found myself getting more excited about school :)
Here's what I had to do (Every major has a different project)

Major- Beauty Industry Merchandise and Marketing
Imagine you are a Product Representative for a well-known cosmetic company and your job is to develop and launch a new cosmetic or fragrance. 
Describe the average customer for whom you are developing the product. Include the following information:
• Age range
• Gender
• Environment (urban, suburban, country, etc.)
• Income range
• Lifestyle (job, leisure activities, family lives, etc.)
• Values and viewpoints
• Marital status
• Education
Describe the characteristics of the product and the packaging and WHY it will appeal to your customer. Include the following information:
• Name of the Company
• Function of the product
• Color
• Size
• Shape
• Price point
Important Notes
Use 8.5" x 11" paper and any medium you feel comfortable with, including colored pencils, felt tip pens, watercolors, etc. (but no pastels, chalk, or charcoal). 
Be prepared to discuss the types of customers targeted and the types of merchandise shown in your project. 
Your work will be reviewed for creativity and quality of presentation. Remember, a neat presentation is always advantageous.

Along with the project I had to write a 2 page essay and get 3 letters of recommendation. 
Now I just have to present it to an admissions counselor and fingers crossed that I get accepted! 

My Project
I decided to do both parts on an 8.5 x 11 sheet
My product was Gold Leaf and a new way of applying it.
 3 letters of recommendation

Healthy Simple Meals

Is it June yet? Cant wait for my Miami trip! At the moment I've been going to a trainer 2-3 times a week and I've been trying to juice every morning- its tough getting up at 5:30! but it'll pay off, I just know it ;)  

Morning Juice
10 Strawberries, 2 cucumber, 1 lemon, kale, spinach, 3 carrots, 3 apples 
We all love pintrest, but how many times do you actually do something you pinned? Rarely, me too, but I'd like to change that. This week I made dinner 3 days in a row! Doesnt sound like something to be proud of, but if you know me, you know that I eat taco bell about 3 times a week along with other fast food restaurants -NO BUENO!
Monday's Meal
salad and chicken
Tuesday's Meal
now this was a great melt I found on pintrest.
ingredients: Bread, Pesto Sauce,  Mozzarella Chesse, Spinach, Feta Cheese, Avocado
