Earth Day - 2012

For Earth day I decided to visit on of my favorite places in Dallas, the Butterfly House at the Texas Discovery Gardens. 

Located at the Fair Park south of downtown D-Town, this building is home to many butterflies at their different stages. They are a sight to behold when they are all inflight. They fill the room with their fluttery that will leave you in awe.

They swoop and dive and even land on you to take a rest. Some of them are co-operative enough to let you take their picture. I love butterflies, I always have and always will.

There were some festivities over at the Fair grounds as well, which included information booths on conserving energy, natural cosmetics (soaps and lip balms), planting new trees, and raising awareness on how important it is to recycle and upcycle.

The food stalls included yummy fresh fruit smoothies, mobile kitchens serving up hot and spicy American favorites such as hot dogs, corn dogs and sweet slushy-icy sno cones.

Everyone made sure put their trash in the right bins! LOL!

It is important for us to understand that there is only one planet Earth, and we have to take care of it because it is our home. Everyday should be Earth Day.

Remember to recycle and never to litter.

Fashion's Living Canvas - April 2012

As a Makeup Artist, I am usually working backstage at events like these and never get a chance to see the show. I always enjoy when I get the opportunity to attend as a patron. Held at the Hilton Anatole conveniently located on the outskirts of the upbeat downtown Dallas, (fondly called D-Town); this event was designed to 
allow people to see what
goes into preparing models for a show, as they become transformed into living, strutting works of art! 

On April 10th, Dallas' fashionistas populated the event in drones, well coiffed and fabulously and fiercely dressed to the 9s!!! Yes, indeed! Dallas does fashion, and does it very well!!
See for yourself:

Makeup by Team Motives - Dallas of Motives Cosmetics, lead by Tiffany Luong. Hair by Blanc Salon.

Proceeds from the event benefited The Fashionistas, and Team Motives Agency's Student Program.

Move Over Trina - Mother Nature Is Da Baddest Bitch

Well, well, well!! This doesn't have anything to do with fashion, hairstyling, or makeup but if you were in the wrath part of these tornadoes today (reported to be approximately 3), you could have very well had your couture ripped off you and tossed to the wind, or complete with you still in it!!

Video footage from 1:50pm on 4/3/2012......

Notice how the semi-trucks' trailers are being tossed into the air like leaves and feathers!!!

Instagram images in the side bar: See how these three tornadoes 're-decorated' some areas of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex today! Homes, foliage, businesses, and vehicles ripped apart and strewn for miles from where they originally were.

Around 110 airplanes at the DFW International airport have sustained damage, as well as 600+ flights cancelled. The tornadoes were followed by heavy rain storms and Texas sized (big as grapefruits) hail!

I don't in anyway mean to make light of this situation, but I just feel better knowing that no-one lost his/her life!!
