Hello, my pretties!

I apologize for taking such a long hiatus from the blog. It was completely unintentional but life has picked up speed on me and I have no choice but to catch up. lol.

At the moment, I’m packing to go home to New York City on Wednesday for some overdue recharging of my batteries. Yes, it’s crazy that I go to the busiest city on earth to recharge my batteries but it’s the only place that can really calm me down and lift me up all at the same time.

I’ll be gone to NY from the 21st-25th and then on the 25th I take a train down to Baltimore to visit my lovely friend, Rachel. So excited! Every year I like to catch a Yankees game and this trip is no different. Saturday I’m catching the Yankees vs. (ahem) Red Sux game. And then as fortune has it, Rachel is taking me to an Orioles vs. (ahem) Dead Sox game. Ugh. Two BoSox games in 3 days time… I’m going to need to be nice and liquored up to tolerate that. lol.

I didn’t want to leave you guys high and dry for another week so I wanted to make a quick post that was SUPPOSED to have been up on Brazilian Independence Day. :/ And that was on, September 7th *hangs head in shame*

QUICK DISCLAIMER: Please excuse my hasty attempt at applying falsies. I was on a time crunch. Also, I dislike how my eyebrows look. They needed to be threaded and the eye pencil I used for them was too light. I’m a work in progress. So, my apologies. :)

So without further a do, I bring you the FOTD (Face of the Day).

Going for the Brazilian flag colors with a bit of Brazilian bronze ;)The eyes have it! A look up-close.Representing that Blue, Green and Yellow :)))Another angle...A picture of me coppin' an attitude, for good measure. lol.
