Online Find: Happy Never After

2minxinxSearching online, or not even trying to find anything online, you always tend to bump into some pretty cool stuff. Usually, I’m always on the hunt for anything that has to do with art. This time, I ended up finding a series titled “Happy Never After” by artist Saint Hoax. This campaign was targeted to any woman who has been the subject of domestic violence. The aim of the poster series is to encourage victims to report their cases in order for the authorities to prevent it from happening again.

I think his artwork is great, and the message behind it, hits very close to home.

For the guys, out there don’t fret, he also has a series for men which captions “When did she stop treating you like a hero?”

Captured by Belle: Princess Samara

I had the pleasure of shooting the most cutesy little princess by the name of Samara. She was officially turning 4 years old and her “Tangled” dress was to die for! Mom Annette went all out for her birthday party (read that post HERE) and I had a great time. I figured every princess looks beautiful in a meadow, and to some green scenery we headed. It was a bit windy, but I love how these shots came out.

Happy Birthday Samara!

A coworker of mine was helping her niece have a great 2nd birthday. So of course I had to jump in a little and some work. Dahiana was great with the kids. There were so many kids playing all times of games, hula hoop competition, limbo, duck duck goose, potato sack racing and soooo much more. I actually joined in on the fun when the adults got to play musical chairs. I was runner up… ah, soooo close!   Q actually came with, since Saturday’s are usually our days. He was such a big help once we were decorating, he helped set up all the food, and had an even better time eating it afterwards.   I ended up taking about 300 pictures and so many videos of today, but I’ll spare you the rambling and put up a few, especially since I don’t want to post up too many kids that don’t belong to me on social sites.  Until next time guys!

Ps. I’m soooooo loving this purple do. tumblr_n1lzri4ilO1qa600wo1_500 10_1 23_1

Tuti’s Performace

I met up with Jen in Fort Independence with a huge bag of overnight clothes and plans to head to Connecticut.
Plans quickly changed. Destiny, which we all call “Tuti” and is Jen’s niece, was having a performance in her school today.
So we packed up all the kiddies and headed on our way to the MNR. With all the noise and hyper moves everyone quickly scattered giving us places to sit.
That’s Michael, Jen’s brother hooking me up with some chicken wings while we wait for our train to arrive!
Jesse, the youngest brother,Jen and I.
Since we had no napkins to clean up after those chicken wings, to clean up Justen’s hands Jen had the mastermind idea of using pantyliners.lol Oh, man……Poor Justen, he looked humiliated, especially after I snapped a pic!

After finally arriving, a few stops before Poughkeepsie, we were picked up and drove to the school. Though I didn’t get a chance to grab a pic, the school looked beautiful, spacious and almost as if it was fake and able to be used as a backdrop for some cliche highschool movie.

Tuti did great though. She first sang Adele’s Someone like you, then Ceelo Green’s Forget You. of course, it has to be forget you, keeping it classy for the kids.

She then came out, sang and danced a trio in her stunning glittery red dress. Yes, the definitely stole the show!

Here’s a few pics of her special night. ( You guys should already know when you click on any picture it becomes larger )

Everyone was so proud of her! Once the show was over, we all headed out to Giacomo’s for pizza. Where my plate was looking way too good for my own good. I had pizza, a philly cheese steak, philly cheese chicken and some organic fresh mozzarella pizza that was waaaaaay too good!

This family is so inviting, you can clearly see how much love they have for one another. I’ve met many of them on separate occasions, but there’s something about special occasions, I felt so welcomed and grateful for being able to share this moment with them.

Look how cute they are !
Especially with all these little princesses running around who are so fond of their uncles and daddies. Too adorable!

Look at how awesome my plate is, well was..yum! After getting fat we all headed to Mayra, Jen’s sister house and started talking and then a nerf gun fight started!!

I was ready for war.. especially since there was only gun! I would catch the ammo, stuffing my bra with the neon green bullets until I was ready for war!

Once things calmed down we had a little glow in the dark, uv, blacklight fun.

Of course I couldn’t resist leaving my mark with some glow in the dark markers on Jen’s leg =]

Until next time readers !
