A Little Bit of Paris... :)

Hey loves! I am currently typing from my laptop in my hotel room since I am training for a new job in New Jersey (eeks!). I anticipate that updating will be rather difficult during my two weeks out here because the workdays are long, and I'm so exhausted from the travel while still getting over jet lag from Paris! I know I don't mention it much, but sometimes I think I seriously overwork myself. XD

Anyway, I don't want to keep you guys waiting in too much anticipation for my next video (Paris vlog maybe? ;) so I thought I would post a few pics from my photoshoot at my Paris "monument". Twitter followers may have already heard a bit about it, but the Paris trip was for a project with Sigma Beauty who made the brushes I talked about here which I am REALLY excited about, but am not allowed to share quite yet.

I just wanted to say that I am thrilled, honored, humbled, and feel incredibly blessed and unworthy to have gotten the opportunity to go on this trip. I've thought about it so many times in my head and still it seems unreal for my name to have possibly come up amongst such AMAZING people who I really admire not just in makeup skill but as people. (I know, I know, I am so cheesy but I seriously can't help it. I'm still in shock.)

Thank you SO much to Simone & Sigma Beauty and Rasun, as well as xteeener, MakeupByTiffanyD, macNC40, petrilude, xsparkage, and my Paris roomie DulceCandy87, for all the love, laughs, late night talks, and I'm-not-even-kidding-unforgettable memories. <3 (I KNOW! SO CHEESE BUT I SWEAR MY FINGERS, THEY KEEP TYPING!!)

But most of all, I have always thought about you, my supporters, readers, friends, who have always carried me through so many of life's ups and downs... So much more than you will ever know. On days when I just want to give up, I have had so many times where I was moved to tears to read the kindness and camaraderie that you've been so generous to give so that we can all feel like strong, beautiful people at the end of the day. With open arms and a truly grateful heart I want to say thank you.

Ack, I've talked myself emotional. I better hurry and share the pics. ;)

Thank you so much for reading/watching and I hope you enjoyed this tiny peek at Paris. I promise, more photos and vlogs to come!

Much love, hugs, kisses, thoughts, and prayers. <3

xoxo

  72. Hi Jen! I am a frequent reader of your blog, I absolutely love this look you have here. Can you please share where you got the outfit from? Also, I am anticipating on some graduate school interviews, and hopefully you could help share some ideas on some of these petite professional attires and where you usually shop for them! Thank you!! I would greatly appreciate it!

  73. Jen, you're just so awesome!! Seriously, I've been reading your blog since 2008 and I still love to do so. Keep up with the great work!!! ^O^ However, it's not a good thing to hear that you're overworking yourself! Please take good care of your health!!

  76. Congrats, Jen! Btw, I like your shoes! They look comfortable, plus they're nude, so they lengthen your legs. (I always passed on this style before because they were black and would shorten the legs visually.) Anyways, I'm looking forward to your Paris recaps! :)

    ReplyDelete
