Happy Martin Luther King Day!

I took this picture when I went to Washington D.C. this past summer. I stood on a little plate that indicated that that location is where Martin Luther King stood when he made his “I Have A Dream” speech.

That’s pretty deep, uh?

This day has always had some significance to me. It was never just a day off. Whether I’m in a parade or attend some festivities, this day always gives me a chance to remember our past. And it’s even more so a motivator to work hard in the present so that I can leave footprints for the future.

Happy Martin Luther King Day.

Bringin’ in 2011 and my birthday!

Happy New Year from Doral! Have you ever heard of Doral, Florida? It’s just a minutes outside of Miami and according to Wikipedia, it is considered upscale suburb. Uh…I would agree. It is beautiful out here! I’ve been to Doral before. After all, the school that was named after my Grandma isn’t too far from the resort. But man oh man…I just had to share with you beauty that is the City of Doral and Marriott’s Doral Villas. And perhaps you’ll consider it for you next vacation getaway.

Kat Von D and B: Black liner and tattoos

Kat Von D and I have something in common. We both love tattoos. Yeah, I know…some people are all like, “They are so unprofessional.” OR “They are too permanent. What if you change your mind?” :roll: I’ve got 5 tattoos and have yet to regret any of them. I’ve got them all in locations that are concealable and sag-proof.

That sound you hear is probably of my parents weeping. Sorry Mom. Sorry Dad. Your little girl is a rockstar.  And this New Year’s Eve, I’m going to be rockin’ the a super smokey eye. Courtesy of Kat Von D’s Autograph pencil.
