Girl in the green dress

Yesterday my friend Jazz decided today was the day that she was going to take photo's for her portfolio as she is a make-up artist, and guess who was the model? Yep you guessed it, ME!
The previous night she told me "Kimmi get your glad rags, your foundation and your heels and I am going to do your make-up!"  Bare in mind that I am at least 4 years older than Jazz or Jazzy Fizzle as I like to call her, this girl always wants to dress me up like a dolly as if I was the little sister she never had.  I didn't really mind to be honest, and was glad to help her and her growing career as a business owner and entrepreneur in the world of fashion.

So yesterday morning Isa and I met Jazzy at Anerley train station and we headed for mum's to start my dress up session. It really is nice to dress up and have no where to go sometimes, just to look nice and feel good about yourself.
On arrival at mums, I gave Isa his lunch put him down for a nap and J.Fizzle began her magic!

Mr M took the oldest two out to the arcades and then Cosmo's for dinner, and when Mr Bogetti finally woke up, he was in a good mood therefore making it a stress-free environment!

Jazz is a brilliant make-up artist and takes the time to get to know her models likes and dislikes, whilst adding her own twist to it. Jazz will advise you on the colours that best suits you as the individual and also great advice on how you can compliment your features. As with most people I can be quite particular in the look I am going for.

I can lack self-confidence at times and when it was time to take the photo's I suddenly got very self-conscious and silly, but we had fun with it!

Here are a small selection of the photo's

I must say after much deliberation I still feel red lipstick is not the one Jazzy, sorry no convert's here lol x

Next time I think I need a couple of tequila's before we start the foto shoot!!!........Just joking ;)

100 birthday's, a little bit of this and a little bit of that!

OMG I've stopped blogging, I've stopped reading!!! It's been over a month since the last time I wrote a post on my blog.  I just seem to be busy, busy, busy as a bee.  I have tried to write a post on numerous occasions, but as soon as I start, either Isa is crying, causing trouble, doing something 2 year olds just shouldn't be doing, or my other two are trying to kill each other.

The School shopping has been done, summer hols are almost finished, and over the last few weeks I have celebrated what seems like a 100 birthday's.  Mum's, Ish's and my nephew Dan's birthday were all on the 5th of August and Isa's was 2 on the 12th of August, my Brother Danny's birthday was a few days ago on the 25th, my bestie Vanessa's birthday was yesterday and I've still got a few more to go!

We had a Barbeque for both Ismail and Isa on Sunday 11th August, and celebrated with all those close to us, par a small few. The day went from a formal cutting of the cake and a small family dinner and turned into a small bashment (Jamaican word for dance/party), well almost taking into consideration my nephew Triston forgot the connections for the music and my Dad and Bro-in-law Gavin decided they would like to switch what little music we did have off to watch Usain Bolt WIN his race (as everyone knew he would!)

My baby Ish is not a baby anymore, he is 12 years old and growing into a wonderful man who I am extremely proud of. Although he has started his pre-teen tantrums and his attitude gives a lot to be desired at times, he is still a joy to be around and is full of inspiring ideas and intellectual conversations.
Mr Bogetti-Isa spaghetti as we call him is now 2 years old, he totally looks like he is 3 years old and so often I hear a "omg he's only 2!!" as he is quite tall for his age and has a tendency to do things which are far beyond his years(breakdancing, climbing up slides as opposed to sliding down, climbing up kitchen counters helping himself to cakes, biscuits etc and being tall enough to open front doors to name a few!). This child is my most energetic, stubborn, and troublesome yet but still I find him just as adorable as the other two. As I guess any mother would.

Bank holiday weekend gone I went to Blackpool with my bestie V.  This girly weekend away was in celebration of her birthday.  We stayed at the Worbreck castle hotel which was on the sea front, you could see that in it's hay day this hotel was really something quite spectacular.  The Worbreck is huge and is equipped with swimming pool, Gym, steam room and such which is great but in all honesty this hotel could do with updating and a little bit of TLC to get it back to what it once was.

Our weekend consist of relaxation, a few visits, much giggles and jokes, a few rides and a bit of sightseeing. All in all it was a lovely weekend, accompanied by beautiful weather which was an added bonus to the pleasant time we spent in Blackpool.

Glad to be back with my 3 babies :D
