Good morning, beautiful #Barbados 👋😭 I could spend all day on the balcony, looking out at this & listening to the waves + birds. Can’t wait to sneak some time to go down & put my feet in the water. It’s so beautiful..but! Time for serious business lady stuff! 🎉  (at Barbados, Caribbean)

I’m here super safe & sound!!!!!! I’m falling hard and I haven’t even see this place in the daylight. The beach is just steps away from my room, I have a giant balcony that I’ve been sitting on just listening to the crickets and frogs chirping away. inhaling the warm air, feeling the sweet tropical breeze blow my hair around, and having a moment. shedding tears. Life is amazing. I am definitely living and on the right path! So excited to work with @exoticamakeupandextensions all weekend long! (at Barbados, Caribbean)

Made it to #Miami!! Barely..again. Thanks to the unannounced gate change 🎉 but I am here, waiting for a few more hours til I head to Barbados. I. Am. Coming. Heard there was a storm around there right now!!! Scurry or nah? Can’t wait to feel/smell that good tropical air & rain!!!  (at Miami International Airport)

SO I HAVE A STORY- arrived at the airport later than anticipated b/c of traffic, construction & a car accident on the terminal onramp. I barely made it. Went to check in at #AmericanAirlines. Was not checking bags & I was told I missed the check in window. Bish whet? I asked a woman why the computer was telling me that, when I was there 49min before my flight. All I got was a sassy “MM-MM you gotta go rebook at main cabin, its down there”  I walked over, waited in an hour-long line, listening to people yell at employees & literally cry hysterically b/c they were told the same. I tried to remain calm, no good comes out of adding negative to a negative situation so I took a deep breath & accepted that I’d be on the next flight out.  I explained the situation to the woman at the desk, she looked into it, and a puzzled look came to her face. She said I WAS HERE WITHIN THE WINDOW and “don’t know why they sent you (me) here” 😀 OH. 😀 I could’ve been sitting in my extra-money preferred seat & in the air. NOPE. So the next flight is early in the morning, but now my entire first day in Barbados is RUINED & now it has messed with my professional reputation. #FURIOUS. So I went to customer service to get a cot & the manager was the best thing that ever happened this whole evening. shout out to William Wilkins, American Airlines Customer Care Manager in #LAX for getting me my window seats & being a friendly face to a colorful weirdo like myself. The true highlight of tonight was my 4’10 self lugging my #zuca bag & jam-packed carry-on with one hand & dragging a heavy cot up and down the gate/terminal looking for an outlet. I thought I had found a spot, took this picture and then after laying down, I discovered the outlet holes were damaged. SO THEN I packed up, heard the free water & granola bar announcement, got some water. Continued to shuffle around, sweating profusely, ruining my edges, water bottle stuffed in my bra (it fell out twice) and now I am finally here with some worker guys drilling into the ceiling, while a song plays with lyrics saying “you can’t go home tonight” Screw you, American Airlines.  (at American Airlines Terminal 4)

Heard it was national #lipstick day..couldn’t decide which one, so I threw my first drawer of lipstick/lipstick-ish products on the floor. Now I’ll be here picking/swatching/tossing for the next couple hours, because I wanted a quick photo. ✋😴

Last one..! #Sorrynotsorry, I didn’t know #butterfly fear was a thing..😑 to me personally they’re just tiny, super delicate lil colorbugs, who spend their lives nonsensically (but not actually) flapping around & sippin on nectar til they die. I appreciate their beauty. 😗😬
