I am back! This one woman show is back, ready to take the blogosphere’s stage once again. I have experienced life lessons, work highs and lows (because with highs become lows). Tons of makeup jobs, heaps of makeup products, many events, tv shows, award shows, news, indie-movies, documentaries and more – I was busy!
While I was away here’s my take on what happened in pop culture, makeup and beauty.
Jessica Simpson was criticized as the ” biggest pregnant celebrity ever”, as well as ” had the longest pregnancy” ever and of course had the “biggest baby ever.” I say mazel Jess!
Carla Bruni-Sarkosy made a fashion statement in flats. The former singer, model and First Lady of France hit the streets of NYC with a slender post baby physique in dare I say, flats!
Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middelton celebrated their 1 year wedding anniversary. Congrats to the newlyweds!
Beyonce Knowles-Carter is the pop star of all pop stars, a 16-time Grammy winner, and beauty and style icon. The singer, actress, and new mommy can now add one more title to her long list of accomplishments. Beyonce took home the coveted title of People’s Most Beautiful Person. The entertainment powerhouse might have taken People magazine’s most beautiful title but her focus is her new title “Mother” and her bouncing baby Blue.
The White House Correspondence Dinner was not just the talk of Washington, it is the comedy hour seen round the world. I have always wanted to attend this event which was once known as the “Nerd Prom”, it is now become the spring’s hottest ticket. The dinner is now the most glamorous, star-studded and politically savvy event out there. It’s just my cup of tea.
On a somber note, hip-hop and music lost a trailblazer. Adam “MCA” Yauch of the Beastie Boys lost his battle with a rare form of cancer. Not before being honored with music’s top prize, the Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Thanks for changing hip-hop and pop music!
My favorite news to report is the HBO series GIRLS. This show speaks to a generation, my generation. If you can get past the startling scenarios that occur in the first episode and admit that something this undesirable has happened to you or at least someone you know you will love it as much as I do. GIRLS is the tale of 4 twenty year old gals living in Brooklyn, trying to find their life’s purpose in this shit hole economy and also trying to get a grip on the pivotal roles that sex, love and STDs play in their lives. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this show!
I’m back so tell me what you want to see or hear about!
