I made it all up!

What a fun weekend, it was for me!

Being jet lagged (still), it was hard to get up early in the mornings since I've been back from Hawaii.  BUT... I did it anyway!

On Saturday, I had a small makeup gig.  My model really looked like Lucy Liu!  Very pretty and sweet lady... and we got to know each other so well (a little bit more than we had to... oops! haha) over the short amount of time that we spent together.  I love meeting and working with different people. :)

Sunday morning, I left the house by 5:45am to make it to an all day event in Beverly Hills.  Looking back at my sheet now, I did makeup and hair for a total of 13 people from 7am-3pm.  Not bad, right?  I am actually really proud of myself, considering the amount of time I was given and hearing the feedback from my work.  Most of all, I am so grateful for all the things that I learned from the other Makeup Artists that I worked with.  (THANK YOU!)  I am looking forward to the next project working with this company and artists... and working with new models and photographers.  I cannot wait to get the photos to add them to my portfolio that I am currently rebuilding.

This weekend... was all MADE UP!  (get it?  hehehe)

I am still alive!  I promise!  (Sorry to break the news to some... hehe!  JK)

I can now say that I know what its like for feel jet lagged!  After a week in beautiful Hawaii with my Husband, I didn't want to come back home.  Seriously, he was considering requesting for a transfer out there and everything!  I must say though, that I would miss my friends, family, and life on the mainland way too much if that was to ever happen.  Its an island... you can't just hop in a car and drive away.  For now, I can dream.

Much to do now... including uploading pictures and sharing a bit of paradise with everyone.  Though this is my second time in Oahu, this was the better... may even be the best time EVER!  I fell even more in love with my Husband in a beautiful place... it felt like a dream or fantasy of some sort... but it was real.  SO REAL!

I have so much that I need to update and post about, but I keep putting it off.  There's too many great things that happened that I can't just not share.  There are memories that will live on in my head, but I need a place to jot it all down because I just know that there are many more memories to be created and I don't want to forget any of it.  This has been and will continue to be a place for me to put it all down and out there so that I can refer to it when need be.

Anyway... I hope everyone's been doing well.  Confession again... I haven't been up to date with the blogs, the emails, the facebooks, the tweets.  Shoot me.

A "LONG" Day!

Things are just starting to SLOW DOWN, so I have a few minutes to reminisce and share the memories of a lovely day with you all.

Durand happens to be Sam's best friend... in fact, he was his best man!  I met him and Lily for the first time over four years ago when Sam and I first got together.  I knew right away that these two were the perfect couple and were meant to be together.  I was right!  ;)  These two have been a few of the closest group of friends I've made since I've moved down here to California.  I can honestly say that if I needed someone to hug or talk to about anything, I can always count on Lily... and Durand too (for the non girly stuff).  Anyway, they are awesome people and such great friends to have.  Sam and I couldn't be happier for this beautiful couple... we were waiting for a LONG time for that day!

Their wedding was a beautiful one... one that I wish I can relive and make it last longer because I was having a blast!!  Below are some of the pictures from the traditional Cambodian ceremony followed by the awesome reception.  Enjoy!

On our way!  (I was broadcasting live from my phone)

Had to pose at 7am in front of the house before the ceremony! ;)

Blessing the lovely couple!
(why is my face so wide? haha... just got done eating, I guess)


This is HOTT!  Love them!

My California Family of Friends - LOVE these people to death!

The girlies and my sweet Mother in Law!  :)

The newlyweds and their sea of faces of their friends!  Cool picture!

 The Long's, The Lok's, and The Lim's... I meant Sim's!  :P

Our good friend Mikal of Lok In The Moment (LOKITM Photography) did a BEAUTIFUL job on the pictures.  View more of the "Long" wedding here:  Lily & Durand Long Wedding
