~DISCLAIMER~it’s not my birthday...YET!
You didn’t ask for a story but here it goes... Part I:
I had scheduled my 30 birthday shoot for today (a month ago)! Enough time to coordinate my outfits, makeup artist, props, etc, right? Everything was well planned out. Except the makeup artist part. I’d initially reached out to several people and was given great recommendations but my anxiety of finding the perfect makeup artist for the right price led me into booking an a chair @ultabeauty. Let’s just say I was the young lady’s little practice doll, because she could NOT get my color right. This struggle went on for an entire hour, and that’s without contour (which was $10 additional), or lashes (let’s not even go there), or blush, or lipstick....(sighs)🤦🏾♀️ Long story short, I left! With time against me and a 35 minutes drive to my shoot, I’ll basically have to do my makeup (including eyebrows). All of the excitement leading to this shoot left my body completely. #dead
The balloon you see in this picture was supposed to be featured in my shoot but not exactly as pictured. I had this brilliant idea and I left it up to the @partycity associates to help me find the items in a picture I showed them. After spending 30 minutes in the store and almost running late to my “makeup” appointment, I decided to leave the balloon and pick it up later. Again, let’s just say, #epicfail...my balloon looks NOTHING like the picture I showed them. I was still hoping to shoot with it but my day had considering I spent almost 2 hours in a makeup chair with no makeup, and $7 for the wrong balloon, I needed a break. Thank God for working with considerate people because my photographer was willing to reschedule if that’ll be best for me....YA THINK!?😫🙌🏾🙏🏾 I couldn’t allow my #sundayfunday to be ruined so I turned my lemons into this #photoopp after a well deserved meal @torchystacos and $83 off on one of my birthday dresses!💃🏾 I shared this story to remind y’all that God has sovereignty over every bad day you’ve had or will have...and I promise you this...He will ALWAYS turn it around for your good. #happysunday #30daysofpurity #day8 #bdaycountdown #feb11 #allwhite
