Hello! 2020 has brought out allllll the moods and changes, I truly hope that we as a collective are staying healthy, productive and still striving to know better so we can all do better!

This is a picking up where I last left off post, many wonderful chapters have begun amidst the challenges and if I am being taught anything at all (trust there a long list) it is living allllll, I mean ALL of my wildest dreams.

I have recently crossed over to Real Estate and in true Taurus fashion, as the bulls that we are, I am all head and heart into this hustle. I have been managing short term rentals for several years now in addition to my freelance beauty styling career and somewhere in my late 30’s I have now full heartedly decided to open and entertain the realm of endless opportunities with investing, building, developing, designing.

Please follow and support my page on instagram and I will be updating you more platforms I’ll be revolving on.

Aloha and Mahalo as always for your support, AJ

I was posted as featured artist on my stores IG page and I eagerly shared what I’ve been reaching for during this safe at home order.

I’m still getting used to the new normal and stepping back in this main Hawaiian city, a lot has changed in the few months I was gone!

The images you have seen online where Waikiki is completely shutdown is the real deal. A quick run around my block had the luxury row deserted or boarded up, with no signs of life or immediate return.

Not too long ago, we thrived and survived on this little island that could…and I am positively certain we can do so again.

I am changing gears and exploring this new and very uncertain landscape. Discovering what it means to be essential and cater to exactly what the next movements will be.

I’ve dealt with a few wildcards in my life and even despite the odds, living to play the game is still the prize.

Life was always the prize, AJ

 

 

 

Get ready with me! – pop of color

Hello! How are we all surviving 4/20 and taurus season week? I have entered this space with such new emotions and building a new mindset that how can we possibly turn things around from trials to triumph?!

After a much needed break, from all realms, I am excited to pick up where I left off.

Zooming with friends, family and now having to implement this new wave of communication, I have been thriving at this off time and it has been allowing me to view my own magic in a different light.

Getting ready these days are the barest of minimum. For this particular corporate call, I went with the theme, POPS OF COLOR to quickly transform from Mommy to Media Mogul 💋

I lightly dabbed some Josie Maran Skin dope oil all over my face, the rest, I weaved into my hair. I am fan of anything with multiple uses and this Argan / Hemp oil duo has been the go to during this effortless but with maximum effect look. I am a mother and dreamer so this type of quick fixes are a dream.

I then utilized ONE pigment color for my eyeliner and lip color, used 2 highlights and called it a day, well almost, I went out in the yard, picked a double blooming hibiscus and then was ready for the day 🤭

I used an Anastasia of Beverly Hills pro lip palette to create this look and I am sooooo glad I picked this gem up for my freelance kit.

What do you think?

I love that I just brought a wand & a half to execute a type of mood, vibe, a quick artist fire pick and just do the damn thing.

No excuses, Just effort, AJ

Hustle by the seashore

Beauty, Freelance Stylist, Island Life

 

One of my mentors and I decided to make a morning out of meeting of the minds and include a seaside photoshoot, this taken before my canon m50 and her Prada glasses took a dive into the raging Pacific Ocean.

The camera didn’t make it, but memories encased in its micro sd does. Holy moly, go pro here I come.

In between day dreams and a boss action plan, here we are, never not doing. I used to struggle finding the images I wanted to put on my vision board until I realized I can archive the visions of my reality ON my vision board.

What was once a fairy tale is now my dreams come true, AJ
