Innocent April Fools

April Fools usually means everyone is pulling pranks on each other. A day at work doesn’t mean we can’t give someone a nice little chuckle. Trying to keep thing work safe, not cruel and simple is a little hard. My coworkers and I gave everyone on Monday morning a little surprise when opening the break room fridge, googly eyes everywhere!

Photo Journal: Fundraiser at The Plaza Hotel

   Not many people can walk into work and say they love what they do. I’m one of the lucky ones. Everyone at work is getting ready for our annual Valentine’s Day Gala. It’s a huge fundraiser where all the proceeds go towards feeding, clothing and giving shelter to the homeless. I get to help people everyday, and to me, that’s beautiful.
I volunteered, like many other coworkers that night, in assisting all the attendees. I was in charge of a gorgeous $11,000 necklace from Van Cleef & Arpel that was being raffled that night. Somehow, the cheapy ten dollar necklace I was wearing kept getting all the compliments though. I wasn’t complaining. I fell in love with all the gorgeous gowns the women were wearing… the dresses! I was in love.
The event was a success, and I couldn’t be prouder of all the hard work my colleagues put into this charity event.

All Work and More Play

Because work always needs to be balanced out with a little bit of play.

Over this past year I can say I’ve been pretty blessed in the coworkers department. Sometimes you start jobs and find yourself stuck with people you would never consider yourself even talking to. These ladies have turned work shifts into full of laughs, and after work adventures.

Now that some of them are leaving for better opportunities, I know the vibe in the office won’t be the same. Tear. I know all of us will strive to be great, especially sine we’re all such stern women full of potential. Can’t to see what you ladies accomplish 

A Little Bit of Minxie in my Life

My days constantly consist of work, work and more work. It’s been quite a while since I’ve actually picked up a paintbrush, shame on me. I have so many ideas roaming around in my head and not enough time in the day to actually do anything about it.
On another note, I’ve been hustling hard and counting down the days until my vacation begins. 12 days exactly. I’m so excited! I have everything planned out, to the point where I don’t think I’m going to get to relax. I can’t wait until I see the clear blue waters and sunny skies, dance under the moon and feel my toes underneath the sand. Something New York hasn’t been giving me. That selfish whore.

With me spending so much time at work, I’ve grown fond of the ladies I spend all day with. My boss Jess is the greatest, and my coworkers Nedra, Damaris, Sholanda & Siobhan are all hilarious with strong personalities of their own. We should have a t.v. show with all the craziness that goes on in the office.

Anyway, see you guys soon …  I know I’ve been missing in action lately, blame the fact that I have to be an adult and have responsibilities to take care of. Damn you bills!

See you guys soon my love, byeeeeee.

Birthday at the Office

Birthday at the Office

coworkersAfter Q left, after that wonderful and tasty and surprise at 12am, I hit the sack. It’s still a work week and that’s exactly where I was headed to in the morning.

I’m not a huge of birthdays due to the fact that I feel many people just say “Happy Birthday” to be polite. That’s why my Facebook and all my other everything’s never have my  birthday on them.

If you remember, I’m grateful. If you don’t it’s okay, life would go on.

I got to work and I knew off the bat that I was sharing a birthday with one of my new coworkers Dahiana.

I’ve only been here for 3 weeks and counting and everyone seems so nice and down to earth. I especially get along with all the ladies and Shanna was no exception. She is the most sweetest and most inviting woman I have yet to meet. Earlier during the week she was picking on me, telling  me my birthday is coming up, and I kept telling her it’s just another day.

If anything, everyday should be everyone’s birthday. We should all be nice to each other all the time, not just on the anniversary of the day you were born.

Once I walked into work I notice a yellow post it on my keyboard with the words

” You’re Special, today and always”

I thought it was so cute and ran over to her and gave her a hug.

stationaryOnce I got back from my lunchbreak, I found these adorable stationary sets on my desk.

Ah, I fell in love and ran up to Shanna for another hug.

Hmmm… wait until I surprise her back, no birthday needed.

meQ and I

One of those days, where my bed just happens to be my bestfriend. sadly enough that has been the case lately due to the lack of hours at work. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy by updating my portfolio all the time. Which definitely explains why I have the time to be painting and updating so many body art shoots lately. But no worries, I think I got the hint and though I know my job is still promised ( for the time being ) I always have to look out for myself, which is why I took out the time to finally update my resume today.  Oh, and we all know that’s Q nextto me, sucking my face.

z working on my tatpractice

My brother Zero working on my tat. I finally decided to start my sleeve… let’s see how long it takes me to finish.. I’m very lazy.

I have never shed a tear for any of my tattoos. Yes, it may not look like I have much, due to the fact that all of my tats can be hidden if needed. But Kat was a trooper and held my hand through the whole thing because I was squirming like a little bitch towards the end. Love you!

baby minxie

This is what baby Minxie looks like, chubby cheeks and red lips… I guess not much has changed except for all the bleach that I marinate in my hair.

sidneyq and luci

Drunken nights with coworkers..off the job of course. Thats’s Sidney, the coolest guy ever with a great voice! Q and Luci, the sweetest yet spiciest, coolest girl!

Here’s more of an oldie, but I couldn’t resist.

Olikash.oli.meme before leaving to see Oli

Celebrated Oli’s birthday at Bubble Lounge. It was a cute champagne bar, we sipped on some bubbly and then headed to M-15 to dance everything else away… I actually had fun seeing my girls. I need to start making time for them. I’ve been so wrapped up in my little bubble, it’s very easy tolose yourself…  also I just realized this the most times I have ever used the word “bubble” in a single paragraph. What the hell!?

zombie mode

I have the worst memory I have ever encontoured to date, which explains why I always write everything down. I got waaaaay to excited when I realized the walking dead is finally gonna be on February tenth. Thats’s the best Valentine’s day anyone could ask for.. just give me a pie of pizza and wine, yes, I can be a ratchet sometimes!

psychoThis is what psychotic lovers look like, just incase you had no idea.

This was basically my reaction towards the Superbowl…I had no idea what was going on, and was actually just looking forward to seeing Beyonce perform.

Beyonce always reminds me and my family of my cousin Jasmine… which was perfect timing since we were all together for my cousin Lidia’s house warming get together, look how cute she looks all decked in leopard, she matched her apartment perfectly..leopard/cheetah print everywhere. That’s my favorite baby cousin Raymond.. not much of a baby anymore though, he’ll be 18 in June!

Extra shots from Gj’s birthday while we waited for our drinks at the bar.
