Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog! 

Phew…today has been quite work-filled. After my morning bike ride around downtown, I jumped head-first into my apartment patio project–leveling ground, adding sand, laying concrete stepping stones, adding marble rock, and ruining a perfectly good manicure–all while Ziva played with the leftover sand and my photographer snapped a few candid shots. Stay tuned to VIP home in July to see photos from the process + the final product. 

Now, back to today’s blog topic–Throwback Thursday. In celebration of June coming to an end, let’s take a look back at what the VIP was doing this time last year…Oh, it’s hard to believe how much has changed in just a year! Time really does fly when your having fun, enjoying life, and following dreams *wink*

This time last year, the VIP was getting dolled up by the fabulous makeup artist Daphne Rush for the "VIP Signature Curls" photo shoot with Hot Tools and Matrix products.

Pst....special secret...Gabriel Tajeu is currently recording his next album that will feature the VIP's favorite Gabriel Tajeu song "Southern Skies".
