The Cast of @cmt Music City! I thoroughly enjoyed myself, interviewing the cast of CMT’s “Music City (Alexandra/Jackson/Jessica/Alisa). I binged the reality show the weekend before I interviewed them, and I had tons. of. questions.

Like, is this scripted? Are Rachyl and Kerry okay?!?!?!? What’s happening w Jackson, Jessica and the love triangle?! Did Alexandra really just win Miss Tennessee on TV?! Why has no stud snatched up Alisa yet- she’s the total package! Did they really just say that on TV?!?

These were the types of questions I had. And they answered ALL of them and more. And they all have such beautiful spirits. It was a good time.

Mallory and I met several years ago when we both competed on “The Amazing Race.” We have both grown a lot and experienced some really cool moments together. What Mallory has accomplished as a YouTube, Instagram and Fashion/Lifestyle Influencer in only about 2 years truly blows me away.

Camera Ready Makeup Routine in 10 Steps and 10 Minutes.

Camera Ready Makeup Routine in 10 Steps and 10 Minutes.

unnamed-3.jpg
unnamed-1.jpg

Anyone who knows me, knows I HATE GETTING READY. I appreciate great hair and makeup, but man, do I loathe the process of getting “camera ready.”  But for my job of hosting, interviewing, TV, and events, I need to be looking fly on the reg, and I can’t pay a makeup/hair artist each time.  So I have my “Camera Ready Makeup Routine in 10 Steps and 10 Minutes.”  I am DEFINITELY no makeup pro IN THE SLIGHTEST. I barely know anything about makeup honestly. But I know what makes me look great fast, and that’s enough for me! So, if you are like me, wanting great results in 10 minutes, then here ya go!

STEP 1: Revision Skincare Intellishade Matte Tinted Moisturizer SPF 45. USE SUNSCREEN! USE SUNSCREEN! USE SUNSCREEN! Do not skip this step bc you don’t have wrinkles yet, or you don’t have brown pigment sunspots yet.  I have gone to great lengths to get rid of wrinkles and sunspots, so help yourself out and protect your amazing face! CLICK FOR LINK

unnamed-3.jpg

STEP 2: NARS Luminous ALL DAY Foundation/ Medium/ Stromboli/ Sheer Glow Foundation. I put a quarter size on my hand, then lightly spread it w a bush all over my face. I don’t like cakey foundation, I only use a little to make my face even and smooth.  I also go lightly over my neck and chest to make it all really blend. CLICK FOR LINK

https://rstyle.me/n/cyu39acc627

STEP 3: NARS Medium Custard Concealer. I put this under my eyes and on any blemishes on my face.  CLICK FOR LINK

unnamed-2.jpg

STEP 4: NARS Soft Velvet Loose Powder: Mountain. I loosely put this all over my face and neck. CLICK FOR LINK

STEP 5: NARS Orgasm Blush. I suck my cheeks in and put this on the “apple” of my check. I kinda brush in a circle to make sure it’s not a harsh line. CLICK FOR LINK

unnamed-4.jpg

STEP 6: Infallible Eye Shadow from CVS. I don’t know how to do eye shadow, like at all. So I don’t worry too much about it. I buy drugstore eye shadow and I put the light “888 Iced Latte” all over my eyelid and then “892 Amber Rush” on the bottom/lower corners of my eyelid. Blend together. 

unnamed-8.jpg

STEP 7: Black Eye Liner Pencil (NARS is great, the kind that you need to sharpen). I put this on the waterline of my lower lid. I think it makes you eyes pop. I don’t usually put eyeliner on my top lid. CLICK FOR LINK

STEP 8: NARS Brow Perfector. I lightly fill in my entire brows, focusing on splotchy areas to make them look fluid and even. CLICK FOR LINK

unnamed-9.jpg

STEP 9: ANASTASIA GLOW KIT. I dust the high part of my cheek, and make a “C” around the sides of my eye. Also dust the tip of my nose. CLICK FOR LINK

unnamed-6.jpg

STEP 10: LIPSENSE LONG LASTING LIP COLOR. This takes a little effort to put on, and you have to order from a distributer, but it’s worth it if you need great color for a long period of time and don’t want to worry about having to reapply, smudging or getting lipstick on your teeth. Put the color on your lips, 3 coats. Try to move in one fluid stroke. Wait 45 seconds in between each coat of color. The put the clear gloss on top. Carry this gloss w you all day and keep reapplying as needed. I wear Cranberry, Blu-Red and Bella the most.

unnamed-7.jpg

(EXTRA STEP) 11. LASH EXTENSIONS. I go to "Lash Out" Nashville and use Danielle. This has been a GAME CHANGER for me. I hate putting on mascara and taking it off the most of anything. Lash Extensions last about 3 weeks and you always have perfect lashes. Lashes are an expense, but worth it for someone like me who always needs lashes on point. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

THAT’S ALL IT IS FOLKS! I hope this was helpful, leave a comment if it was, and what else you want me to blog about!

You may know him from “The Voice” Season 7 where he WON the whole thing! His journey is nothing short of incredible. Grew up Pentecostal, moved to Nashville in 2004 and quickly landed a Publishing Deal. Was in several bands, one w Randy Houser, before finding himself a solo act (he originally just wanted to play bass and sing harmonies). Then right before he went on “The Voice” in 2014 he found himself in his darkest days, barely making it to get by.

Episode #8 GET REAL Podcast: Rusty Gaston (THIS Music Publishing)

(Publisher Series part 2) I interviewed Rusty Gaston who runs THIS MUSIC, and he talks about how important it is to him to sign not just incredible songwriters, but songwriters that create a positive energy in his Publishing House, and write from their true authentic perspective, not just chasing what’s Hot on the radio. His formula for success is “Love + Fun = Success!” I loved hearing his perspective on what success truly means to him, and it’s not just financial. Tune in tomorrow to GET REAL PODCAST to hear all the wisdom Rusty has to share on Publishing (to those not in the music industry, a publisher is someone who signs songwriters, gets their songs placed on albums, sets up co-writes, and helps guide their songwriters into the most successful opportunities for them). #getreal #getrealpodcast #podcast #podcasts #countrymusic #nashville #musicindustry #publishing #musicpublisher

Three Little Birds: Meaning behind my new tattoo

unnamed.jpg

I think tattoos should mean something. This tattoo means a lot to me. First off, Bob Marley’s Song “Three Little Birds,” “don’t worry about a thing, cause every little thing gonna be alright,” is the phrase that I want to live and think by. Worrying is the thief of joy. This tattoo reminds me to find the lesson in everything and to trust my journey in life. And have Peace.

This tattoo is also in three parts. There is a time to sit and rest and be still, preparing to fly. There is a time to fly and soar. And there is a time to come down. And the cycle repeats for eternity.

Also this tattoo reminds me that life is like walking on a wire. You can’t be afraid to fall, you have to trust that you will find your wings. Birds give each other space to breathe. Haven’t you noticed when you see birds sitting together on a wire they never crowd each other. They stay in community but they give each other space to be. I like that. When a bird is on a wire, the electricity does not kill them, it passes right though. That feels like magic to me. And I love to live my life full of magic.
