Can we just start out with the fact that I finally have my computer back (Hallelujah)! MOVING ON…
I had a fashion/fitness photoshoot last week with professional fashion/commercial photographer, Toni Riales Photography, located in Mobile, AL. Toni is AHHH-MAZING and I will soon have a post dedicated to her and my makeup artist, Alexandrea West. You guys, I’m not going to just blog about anyone and any product. If I don’t like it, why waste my time unless a group of people actually want a review on it. So, until then, please do yourself a favor and click on their links that I have provided within this text and at the bottom of this post to see their work. If you are a working or aspiring actress, model, blogger, heck even an insurance agent; Toni and Alexandrea can have you looking like a celebrity. Not even kidding. However, we will come back another time in the near future.
I want to talk a little about what I did to prep myself for my photo shoot. Aside from drinking gallons of water (which is pretty typical for me anyhow), taking care of my skin and hair, working out, eating healthy, and shopping (!!!), I knew I didn’t need to forget my tan. No, not a tanning bed tan. If you do go to the tanning bed just stop now. Save yourself! No, really. Not only did I need a beautiful glow, I needed an EVEN tan because well, part of my photo shoot was in a bathing suit and you will be able to see about 80% of my skin. A long time ago I stopped going to a machine to get sprayed because I always felt the color didn’t last, it wasn’t the prettiest color, and most importantly it was rarely 100% even on my body. It was never even enough for me to feel comfortable wearing a bathing suit in if you know what I mean. All of this to say I called this lovely higher-end, luxury skin spa that I had used in the past here in Enterprise, Al – LUXE Airbrush Skin Spa.
I have met and spoken with the owner, Kalina (who is strikingly gorgeous BY THE WAY), several times in my community and had previously gotten a spray tan before. That first tan was the most gorgeous tan I ever had, so I knew I needed to contact her about concocting something for my photo shoot that would looking pleasing on camera. LUXE uses Fantasy Tan, which in my opinion is the most gorgeous spray tan out there. Kalina uses one machine to spray the body and a totally separate machine to spray hands, feet, and face for an even and beautiful looking tan. We spoke about my photo shoot and she also wanting to get me in to do a facial. Of course I was absolutely ecstatic! Can I just humbly say that my face and the color of my body looked 100% camera-ready on the day of my shoot thanks to Kalina and LUXE Airbrush Skin Spa.

Very soon, I am scheduling another photo shoot with Toni Riales Photography for my headshot. Not to try and become a model (I’m too old to just be getting into that), or an actor, but to send it off to attempt to become a walker on The Walking Dead! Yes, becoming a walker would absolutely help complete me haha! Anyway, before I do that I am definitely coming back to Kalina with LUXE to help beautify me again.
