Life Update: Where Have I Been?

I know I’ve been MIA lately on the blogs, so the short answer is that I’ve been around.

My Foundations (Drugstore)

For a black woman of the tropics myself, wearing a full face of makeup daily is an absolute no-no. I just can’t do it. But most days, what does make it is at least a coat of foundation. I am a matte loving creature. If it’s matte or smoky, give it to me please, all day everyday……

It didn’t occur to me that I could freelance full-time while living in Jamaica until maybe a year ago. The services I offer are not only perfect, they are a needed skill set. I knew that it wouldn’t be easy to get started but the more I thought about it, the more I was sure that…
