Welp I must say I been living up to my blog name ONLINE WITH FAITH! This year has been REMARKABLE so far for me. I've had some downs but I definitely had some ups! First off in order for this blog to go the way I want I have to tell you all every detail possible without making this article the next phase of the Chronicles. First off this year I didn't do a vision board like I normally do. What I did I vocally voiced what I wanted whether it was on my instagram, facebook or I'll say it out loud. All I knew was I wanted to assist well known and influential makeup artists, I wanted to go to The Makeup Show NY, I wanted a job because I wanted to launch my business this year and etc. So lets get to the meat of this blog post.
My two scriptures for this year are
So I lived by these two scriptures and totally believed what they were saying. So earlier this year around mid January I was on +Instagram late at night. I'm a night owl so it's normal for me to be up all times at night like I am now writing this blog. SO as I was scrolling all the way down the IG Feed I seen a post from +AJ CRIMSON saying that he was looking for makeup artists in Houston. Now LORD KNOWS I been hoping and praying that he would come to Houston one day because he's normally in LA or NY everywhere but Texas lol. So when I seen his IG post it's like the heavenly angels started to rejoice! I seen this spot light just shining on my computer screen to the post. Naw, I'm kiding about the spot light. But I did feel like this was for me and was my opportunity to make my move. This was the posting on his IG page.
+AJ CRIMSON was speaking to me when he said "I NEED YOU" I was like "You need me AJ? I'm on my way!" So the first thing I did I immediately and when I say immediately right after I read this I was hyperventilating out of excitement literally bouncing around like a ball I emailed him with my portfolio, resume and mini cover letter. THEEEEEN I shared this post with my makeup artist friends in my group MUA Chat Line 2. When you see a blessing you have to cover yourself first then think about others lol. I know that may sound selfish but I'm being real. I didn't know how many people signed up for this position and I be darn if I shared this to everyone and I didn't make the cut because someone I shared it with sent their information before me because I was too busy trying to get the word out. NOOOOO WAY! It wasn't going down like that. I couldn't miss my blessing so I moved on it first. Once I sent my email and shared with artists I prayed a prayer to God letting Him know this was the desires of my Heart and if it be his will please open this gate of opportunity for me. So then I posted a facebook post tagging +AJ CRIMSON in my post and it was funny but I was dead serious and we laughed at that moment when we finally met.
Here is proof of my prayer....
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! This was my face when I seen this email...
Pretty excited I was! Then I followed behind with this post to add to it...
I got some supportive friends on facebook. :D So yea y'all may think I was bit too extreme but HEY my extremeness worked!!! SHILOH!
I'm truly grateful for the opportunity y'all just don't know. And it was an humbling experience. I met some awesome people. Don't worry I have photos to share. This is only Part 1 of this blog. So be on the watch out. :)
I want to thank +Aj Crimson for the opportunity, Michael Snow who is his agent and a very hard worker it was so awesome meeting you. +LeToya Luckett for offering her studio and letting us intrude in her space which she didn't have to do, +Kiyah Wright and +Jamaal Buster!
