New Year! New me!

The title of this blog may sound more dramatic than it actually is. New me would normaly imply an extreme makeover of some sort. A new hair style, flashy wardrobe . Well, unless you call gaining about 30lbs due to a growimg baby inside my belly a makeover, im sorry to dissapoint you. This year a "new me" means a new state of mind. Like any red blooded human, I have many shortcomings. One of them being my inability to follow through with the many genious ideas that pop into my head on a daily basis. So this is my New Years resolution! This year I be more diligent about posting weekly on my blogs, I will finish all my unfinished projects from 2010, I will actively promote myself as a makeup artist and not shy away from new oppurtunities. I will believe in my talent.

To kick start this resolution I am expanding my internet marketing with a new Facebook page dedicated soley my makeup artistry, as well as a new profile on a networking website called My salon Elixir Salon and Day Maker's origional Facebook page mysteriously disappeared but there is a new one up and running. With the new year comes a new wave of motivation and im excited to see where it takes me!!

With Valentines day right around the corner, I have about 5 weeks to fill my schedule with makeup appointments so its time to start spreading the word! If you read my blog, check in weekly for all the updates and new postings! I have a feeling this is going to be a great year!

The Winner is...

This month at work we had a pumpkin decorating contest to get everyone into the Halloween spirit. At first I was thought my pumpkin was going to win for sure! It was a two faced, good vs evil dia de los muertos sugar skull peice of art... but as soon as I walked into the Salon and saw the adorable Gizmo pumpkin among many other really creative designs I knew it was going to be a tough competition to win. After a long anticipated ruling by the judges first prize rightfully went to one of our very talented hair dressers Jaime. Check out her pumkinized Gene Simmons!

Misfit Monroe Master Makeup Artist is back in action!!

Whats up people out there in cyber space! Ive been MIA for a while but I get like that from time to time. I'm like a turtle... when things get tough I retreat inside my shell for a while! But I'm back and in rare form! Here's whats happened in the last few months... I got married to my best friend and the love of my life, got an amazing new job as the resident makeup artist for a very prestigious salon and spa and am now expecting my second child. Lots of lows followed by lots of highs and I'm just excited to see where this crazy thing called life is headed next!

My latest and greatest passion is Aveda Makeup!! Its almost completely organic and very eco friendly. I'm now painting faces full time at Elixir Salon and Day Maker in Colleyville, TX. It is an Aveda salon so every product they use from their plant derived hair colors, and makeup pigments to the massage oils and waxes are all from Aveda so they are great for sensitive skin and giving back to the environment with every use.
