Happy New Year, Everyone — Woo-hoo!  Wow, when I look back at my life in 2014, I feel pretty darn blessed and grateful for all the fabulous opportunities and experiences I was afforded.  I met some very fascinating people,  travel a ton, made meaningful memories with friends and family (near and far), and created long lasting relationships both personally and professionally.   What more could a girl ask for?  And quite honestly, I am so excsited to see what kind of surprises 2015 has in store.  I feel like the best is yet to come…

My hubby and I spent the last week of December in “The Big Apple”, where we rang in the new year (…now that was a party!).  No, we didn’t hang out in Time Square, but we did spend quite alot of time exploring Soho, Greenwich Village, Chelsea and of course Little Italy.   I love the engery in New York; the people, the hustle and bustle, the grittiness and of course the art and history.  New Yorkers are resilient and ooze spunk and style!  Simply put, they are cool!  I’m feeling extremely inspired and motivated, and am super pumped to share some of my “Nu Yoak” experiences with you on my up coming blog posts.  I’m especially giddy about sharing my time spent with my friends at Make Up For Ever and MAC Cosmetics while I was there, so stay tuned.

In the mean time, I’m gearing up and packing my bags again for a business trip to Toronto.  I’ve been invited to join the KMS California, Canadian Artistic Team and I can not express how honored I feel to be joining such an elite group of creative individuals and hair professionals.  I’m eager to learn and grown with my fellow KMS California artists and am absolutely THRILLED to be contributing my creative ideas with everyone, to support and enhance an already fantastic company and product line.
