Wandering Thoughts from a Moto Make Up Artista

Tuesday, January 18, 2011


I'll be attending the International Motorcycle Show at the Jacob Javits center this weekend! Going back to NY for a couple of days to see some family and take in the show. Hopefully the snow will hold up until I get home. I'm psyched! I'll be taking LOTS of pics.

Life is Mine

The past couple of months I've been zigzagging through numerous challenges. Various jobs, people and places in my mind I never thought I'd go to. And sometimes at a 100 miles an hour.

Since I last blogged, Max and I split and I've been laid off twice due to the economy. I've now taken a paralegal job. Maybe this one will last a while. I've jumped into a new life for myself. All I can say, it's surprising what you can do when you have to. I guess we all have different challenges - to get to what's right for us. I don't know...

Cleopatra and I have been clocking many miles. I especially love this time of year to ride in CA. Definately leather weather!

I know I have alot of catching up to do with you all. I hope everyone has been having an awesome time and had a great summer.


I tremble, they’re gonna eat me alive
If I stumble, they’re gonna eat me alive
Can you hear my heart beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer
Help, I’m alive, my heart keeps beating like a hammer
Hard to be soft, tough to be tender
Come take my pulse, the pace is on a runaway train
Help, I’m alive, my heart keeps beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer
If you’re still I’m alive (?)
My regrets are fewIf my life is mine
What shouldn’t I do?
I get wherever I’m going. I get whatever I need
While my blood’s still flowing
And my heart’s still beating like a hammer

Okay, I know I haven't blogged in a while, but looking for work is ALOT of work. It's been hectic and I'm stressed. I'm on Craigslist every morning sending out my resume, but no responses. I'm starting to wonder if there's something wrong with my computer. I'm still at the Beauty Bar, but it's very part time. I sold my car, (needed the $$) and Cleopatra has been my companion everywhere I go. It's amazing how much I save on gas. I love riding to everywhere!

I wish I was going to Sturgis to meet some of you, but not this year. Like they say, I'm so broke I can't even afford to pay attention. Max got laid off too...

I have lots of faith and I know I'll get steady work, eventually.

Peace to all and hope your enjoying your summer riding!!

Anyone going? Let me know. I'm sure most accomodations are gone at this point, but would consider sharing a room. Just thought I'd get the word out there in case you know of anyone looking to share expenses.

AND I'd love to meet up with you all!

I know I haven't kept up with this blog in a while, but things have been pretty hectic around here. Hope everyone is doing well.

Love to all. xoxo

I'm Back

Hey all,

Thanks to those of you who've emailed me regarding my disappearance. Right after I finished my last blog on Friday the 13th, I was called into my boss's office with a few other gals and we were told, due to the economy, our services were no longer needed. Since my position was contractual, getting unemployment is not happening like I thought it would.

The past month has been quite a struggle to get any kind of work. However I did manage to get something in a place called the Beauty Bar:

check it out: www.beautybar.com

I've always had my eye on this place, but never got the chance to go in. So, while pounding the pavement, I wandered through that decrepid (sp) door. It's a cool little place. Their mantra is "martinis and manicures". I do the manicure part with other manicurists. I also get a chance to promote my make-up biz. AND, since this place was previously a "biker bar", there's bike parking out front! I must admit things are getting pretty cool. I like this new adventure and have already bonded with some great folks.

Well, that's about it for now. My next blog will be about a long overdue ride I'm taking this weekend!

Peace friends~

Sandals Made Especially for Bikers

Sometimes when browing the web, I'll google "motorcycle news" just to see what's going on. I discovered this article about sandals for bikers. Personally, I would never consider wearing sandals while riding.

Last year the company Bata launched their exclusive ‘Motor Sandal’ in Bangladesh. Now it's hit the States. “The sandal has been specifically designed to protect their feet while riding bikes,” said Bata’s Bangladesh marketing manager.

Motor Sandal features a fiberglass reinforced sole, gear shifter protector, heat resistant rubber, toe bumper and fluorescent rear strap.

I guess Bata didn't think of protecting your ankle, foot and our toe-zees while they were developing this. Just seems a little strange...Yikes!
