15 & FABULOUS!
I've collected magazines for many years and, this particular issue of Essence is one of my favorites. I must say that my actual copy isn't in too bad of shape to be 15 years old either. I shared this version so y'all could see its true beauty. Model Alek Wek graced the cover and was simply FLAWLESS!! This shot was so spot on and current that it could easily pass as a cover today. Essence continues to share exquisite covers, stories and inspiration.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MICHELLE OBAMA!! That is all...
Oh, and...you are EXTRAORDINARILY FABULOUS!!!! ;-)

I recently moved and couldn't take my vinyl lettering with me. ;-( I was a little bummed at first but, then I realized that new beginnings aren't so bad. When I bought the 1,2,3 ummm....13+ sayings, I didn't realize that they were a one-time use only deal. I was so excited about the decorating now aspect that I didn't really pay much attention to the later part. No worries... The new space will allow me to explore new decorative options. Cheers to NEWNESS!

GONE TOO SOON
The start of a new year always gets folks focused and ready to take on the world. In this case, I am no exception. A Monday or the first day of the month/year is a good time to get on task and tackle those "To Do" lists. When I am in my "lab", I am forever working on projects. My latest...The Logo! MRM is who I am and whom I pray to forever be. Get to gettin' on whatever is most important, folks. As they say...You Only Live Once.

I had the best time doing a shoot with this beauty, Caitlyn, today. She was a modeling student of mine at age 13. I can't believe she is 21. Ugh... SJP (as I affectionately call her) is a true professional and can work the camera like no one's business! We have worked on tons of projects and have many more to come. 26 weeks, right SJP?!? :-) #LetsGo #HairMakeUp #Photography #IDoItAll

ALL GROWN UP
Ladies, if you live in Baltimore or the surrounding area, take the time to get The MRM Shoot Experience! We have tons of fun and there are many packages that you can choose from. There is even a Girlfriends' package where you ladies can get pampered and get the glamour treatment that you all deserve. Who says that "Angels" are the only ones whom can have all of the fun. ;-)

VDAY, YOUR WAY!
Everything in my space has a "home". Since I've moved, my OCDness has especially kicked in. o_O I have a number of ottomans to discretely house things that need...housing. With that said, all of my DVD's needed a new place to call their own.
On an AWESOME new note: I received a $50 gift card to Michael's and, my oh my, did I have a ball. #ThanksErica I LOVE Michael's! I'm super frugal and would have gotten 50 items at $1 each. Instead, I chose to get some stylish storage for my growing CD collection. Yup, CD's! Don't judge me!! I got this roomy basket and 3 of the Paris themed storage boxes. I need to find a fourth. My OCD is taking over! Argh... They were 50% off and a great deal to start! And...no, you don't have any excuse to NOT get organized. It's crucial, people!! Have a great week! Smooches! ;-)

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
Yesterday, I had an amazing time shooting for The Maintain Show. The premiere is coming in March and, I can't wait to join the crew at the release party! We talked about fashion, beauty, the industry and so much more. They even had a few surprise questions for me at the end. Ha! CeCe (the shows director), Valentino (The Host) and Lisa (The Co-Host) were a pleasure to work with. They even had food provided on the set! It took EVERYTHING in me to hold tight until the end of shooting to grub. It was so worth it!! Be sure to check them out on Facebook at The Maintain Show. #Smooches

I received an invite to the Grand Opening of Madewell in Harbor East, MD and had to check out the latest addition to my fav downtown locale. DJ Fanci was spinning on the ones & twos - setting the festive tone for the evening. Wait, do folks still say that?!? Ones & Twos. Ha! I'm old. Anywho, I had a great time sipping on the bubbly, meeting new folks and welcoming the J. Crew Group's Madewell to the Aliceanna strip. I'll be back for The Transport Tote. I'm such a bag lady! #Smooches
