A Makeover That 4 Women Hated

Yes, you read that right.  Women who HATED their makeovers.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love shows like “What Not To Wear” that revamp women into their best versions of themselves after a shopping spree, hair, and makeup sessions.  It’s cool to see women’s reactions to their new look.

Earlier this morning, I stumbled across a post on my Facebook newsfeed.  It’s a BuzzFeed video about four women who had professional makeovers done, only to…well, just click the link.  

Four Women Get the “Cover Model” Makeover…Only To Hate It.

What’s your take on the video?  

It’s been a long time…

…oh yes…it has.  I shouldn’t have left you, without a dope post to read to.  *crickets*  Yeah, yeah…I tried to be a little humorous.  lol

Anyway, a lot has happened with me in the last several months.  Where should I start?

1.)  I’m on the verge of finishing school to receive my bachelor’s degree in graphic design. 

2.) I’m expanding HDSepia by doing more portraits, special events, and hopefully fashion/artistic images.  

3.)  Baby #3 will be due this July.  My family and I are excited!  I’ll be getting in front of the lens for new maternity images very soon.  

4.)  I’m a part of Abioye Clothing, a Dutch based clothing company founded by my wonderful friend, Patrick Marcelino from Rotterdam.  

5.)  I have new artwork that I’ve created under Soulfully Yours Art Design.  Also, I can be found in Instagram (yes, I jumped on that train) under @soulfullyyoursartdesign.  

6.)  Hopefully all of this wonderful news will garner more posts here on SD/PN.  🙂

That’s pretty much everything!  I look forward to bringing you all new posts very soon.  Here are a couple images to share for the time being.  🙂

Question:  Who has wonderful news to share??

Photography by !YODA

Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to model for !YODA and for jewelry designer, Lola de’Carmen.  The neckpiece that I modeled is just exquisite.  I loved it so much.  It’s been about six months since I’d last got in front of the lens for a photographer.  However, I had an absolute blast!  I also photographed a model by the name of Charlye Lee.  I’m currently working on those edits and will share in another post.

Here are a couple of images from yesterday’s shoot.  The first image is from the Lola de’Carmen jewelry line.  The second is the “Black Coffee” and yes, I was covered in coffee.  🙂

I love both images a great deal.  What do you think??

New Self-Portraits

Lately, I’ve been in a blue mood.  I got tired of looking like a total bum around the house (I’m a stay at home wife and mom) and decided to take a couple of self-portraits.  I don’t take my own pictures with the thought of “Oh, I’m hot” or any other craziness.  It’s more of an evolution for me.  Every photo has a different mood and I capture it as I go.  Here are a couple of images that I wanted to share.

Do you take self-portraits?  What do they mean to you?

New artwork and poem: “Midnight Blue”

Now, normally I don’t post my poetry with my artwork, but this is the exception.

What most folks don’t know is that I write.  I love writing as much as art.  I have a bunch of stories and poems that I’ve written, however, I’ve been debating whether or not to feature it as well along with the artwork.

I wrote “midnight blue” about a month ago.  It’s an erotic, sensual prose.  I figured today was a great idea to create an art piece to coordinate with it.  Again, I used Illustrator and Photoshop to create this piece.  I absolutely love it.  I planned to put this on my FB artist’s page, but I didn’t want to chance someone reporting me and being banned from posting images.  I figured this is a more open-minded place to post this particular poem and artwork.

Here it is…

midnight blue

his strong, gorgeous body was bathed

in midnight blue mixed with

the illuminating glow of the full moon

his eyes shined brightly like a starry sky

his sensuality was such a surprise

to my eyes–

he captivated me with his masculinity

fantasies of my softness meeting his hardness

as the moon aglow high in the sky

gentle squeezes and sweet whispers

grinding hips and deep moans

songs of passionate bliss

filling the room

i sighed deeply

from my daydream

and allowed it

to burn my memory

as a fulfillment in my heart  ©bth2013

“Shine” series

I decided to create three more pieces of art to compliment Shine I.   What do you all think?  🙂
