San Francisco was amazing!! Saw Beardyman (phenomenal!), went under and over the Golden Gate Bridge (a man made wonder!), met up with my friend Annalisa (who took some of these photos) and went on a boat ride around Alcatraz (didn’t get to go on the island but we got the gist), went to the Aquarium at the Bay in Fisherman’s Warf (we tend to go to Aquariums where ever we go, don’t ask why), went to Muir Woods (saw some gigantic Redwoods!), went to Union Square (Fashion Capital of San Fran!), took a stroll through The Haight to the Golden Gate Park.  Here’s some highlights from our trip. If you want to see all our pix go here:



On the fire escape of our hotel in my day outfit.

Some huge jelly fish from the aquarium that remind me of beautiful chiffon.

My husband, Dewayne, and I on a boat going under the Golden Gate Bridge.

It was crazy windy and cold on the boat!


At a store in Union Square. I love old sewing machines!

Entrance to Muir Woods. Glad he at least caught my head in the shot lol.

Apparently at Giles Deacon’s show the makeup looked super familiar. Refinery 29 says it’s because the makeup is “reminiscent of an evening spent nuzzled up with a bottle of red.” They are calling it “Wino Lips” lol. I kinda like it! What do you think?

Now it’s time for a little bit of advertising! I’m doing a photography package with my good friend Annalisa of SnapShot Ninja Photography! If you’d like to sign up please email Annalisa via the email listed below and let her know that I referred you.

Lastly, I will leave you with a video everyone is talking about. Never before seen footage of Lady Gaga as a mermaid from her “You and I” video. Here’s what Fashionista had to say about it “The film was directed by fashion photogs Inez & Vinoodh and Formichetti was in charge of the fashions, obvi. Like the nymph, the mermaid is a new-ish Gaga persona (she is a mermaid for parts of “You and I” and occasionally performs as a mermaid in a wheel chair, much to Bette Midler’s chagrin). And in this video she’s awfully realistic as a mermaid, gills and all, beached on a director’s chair. But we can’t stop staring at her boobs, which are barely covered in some fish scales and awfully bouncy in slow motion. Oh, and then there’s that part when she gropes them.” Say what you will about Lady Gaga but she undeniably has a great makeup and wardrobe design team!
