What a night filled with great vibes. many thank you’s to EscapeNYC for allowing me to participate in an event filled with such talent. I body painted live and had such a nice crowd around me. A special thank you to my models and my photographer.
Woke up this morning minding my own business.|
Try it sometime.
This chiquita banana babe is giving me all kinds of Carmen Miranda vibes.

I surprised Katt for her 30th birthday with J.Cole tickets. We spent the hour before the concert started looking for food and drinks. And let me tell you, I may be late to the party, but Artichoke pizza is heaven sent.
Whenever I go to concerts, I almost always like to go to the ones that have a range of artists. I was a little skeptical at first, but omg.. J.Cole killed it. I’ve always admired his lyrics, but watching him put his heart into it, just made me fond over him some more. Katt kept making fun of me since I was crushing so damn hard.
I’m a huge planner. I think everyone knows this about me. If you were to look at my calendar, you would probably get a little scared. But sometimes life surprises you, and no matter how much you think you have something figured out, the best moments come with spontaneity.
Josh invited a bunch of us to go kayaking, and though I’ve passed this pier many times, telling myself I would go… I just never went out my way to go do so. Today was the day, and when Melany came to join us, the party was really starting.
I just got out of work, and was extremely overdressed on this hot day. My jeans stayed on, but I was so glad I was wearing a cute sports bra. I took that baby right off.
Now, I don;t know how to swim, but that never stops me from getting into water. I was little nervous at first, especially since we all got on single kayaks, instead of doubles… but that ended up being a great idea, since we kept racing each other, and playing bumper kayaks in the water. Josh kept splashing us, while Mel and I tagged team to get him right back.
Last person to the dock buys beers… you guessed it… first round is on me. I was doing pretty well until I bumped into another person and got stuck going backwards. lol.
The Bronx almost never has anything cool to do. Don’t fight me on this. I have never stepped foot into The New York Expo Center and if things keep going this way, it won’t be the last either. The Greatest Day Ever is a two day festival brought to you by The Brunch Bounce team. There was no way I was going to last all day, so I mad sure I started my night when the sun was going away (shrugs shoulders) making sure I did my homework on the lineup.
I’ve always had a weird love for Ferris wheels. They scare me, but they’re just so beautiful, that I just have to get on! This one was no different, and I was inspired to draw a quick little sketch of one of my own.
Once the sun went down, I was loving all the lights, and I was glad I was able to bring in my camera. I noticed some people complained they couldn’t bring theirs in, and so glad I didn’t have that issue.
The rides were so much fun, and the music was great. I was right though.. I knew I wouldn’t last. The next day my body was sore, I ended up re-selling my tickets, and stayed in bed all day being lazy (whispers: I’m getting old) I heard and saw that Diplo killed it on day 2 though…aaaaahh!
Met up with a friend the other day who told me, I should keep focusing on my photography. Which I have been, but sometimes hearing it from someone else is more like a reality check. I love my artwork, but my camera has been glued to my hip lately. I'm taking on a lot of projects at once, And I honestly don't know how I do it. One of the many is real estate photography, I still have a lot learning to do, but like everything else I teach myself, it'll come in time. While on one of my gigs, I fell in love with this all blue bathroom, can't you tell!? .
