After the excitement of CHA I decided to travel incognito...
I think it worked...lol.
So then it was onto Boston Massacheutuss, to teach at the fabulous dark horse that is Kate.
This is her store the magnificent Absolutely Everything. And it stocks just about Absolutely everything, let me tell you!!
He he we were shoving around here trying to get in front...I won...
I seem to have misplaced a lot of the photos from this visit, so will post them when they emerge from wherever I have inadvertently stored them !!
In the meantime a mahoosive thank you to Kate for her hospitality and a big thank you to all her staff and wonderful customers.
I then flew back to New Jersey to spend a few days at Ranger Headquarters, finalising top secret stuff for the not too distant future..!!
Here |I am working extremeley hard whilst Tim lazes around in Laguna!! The joys of Skype, eh !!
It was also a pleasure to celebrate my lovely friend, the gorgeous Mario's birthday by leaving a singing message on his voicemail. How wonderful to wake up to the dulcit tones of moi, first thing on a morning..Mind you my voice has been relied on to clear a bar in 60 seconds so maybe not, lol.
Much hilarity is made of my hair and how most people don't see it in it's wild state, so Terry decided to photograph me putting in my Victory roll.
First I deal with the rest of my hair leaving a section for the fringe. I then use whatever I have handy. Today it was a bottle of Lancome toner.
Twist the ends of the hair around the bottle
and start to roll towards the head.
until you reach the head and carefully slide the bottle out.
Start securing with bobby pins on one side of the roll...
and repeat on the other...
Then voila.... Ooooops no final picture, but you get the idea.
We also happened to stumble into a Sephora store...Oh my... 3 hrs later, after leaving a kidney as payment we were dragged kicking and screaming from the store by security, he he
But not before I scored pressies for everyone back home and a few "essential" bits and bobs for me.
One of which was the most fabulous eyeliners I have evr owned. It is my eternal quest to find the perfect eyeliner. It has to be wide enought to draw, but fine enough to offer the perfect cats eye flicks. Permanent enough to last all day but quick drying to avoid smudges.
I had given up hope, but lo and behold the beauty angels in Sephora were smiling down on me and I struck gold.
Kat Von D's tattoo liners in jet black.
I chose the pack of 3 sizes for different looks, but it also worked out to be better value.
I then came across this on face book.
Ooh I could have a different look every day, lol
But the fun still wasn't over, it was on to Long Island to teach at Scrappers playground. Terry came with me for the weekend to be my lovely assistant Fifi..!!
Some of the fabulous students.
He he they had me on a big screen...
The lovely Michael travelled from Brazil to spend another day with me.
Here is the lovely Sue, owner of the store, with her Mum, the fabulous Dee Mama, taking part in the proceedings.
A big thankyou to them, Terry for accompanying me and to the fabulous students.
I am now on my way home. I have flown back across the pond and landed on British soil, but I am holed up in a trendy Manchester boutique hotel, with the Mr Babe of Deliciousness, watching back to back Olympics.
Big congratulations to the gold medal winners. The girls, Helen Glover and Heather Stanning, rowed like there was no tomorrow and Bradley Wiggins side burns deserved a medal of their own.
