My Website Photoshoot with Photographer Thomas Dodd. Makeup by Nneka & Club Pictures

This post is long overdue, (insert big smile...) & it's been a while since I had personal pics up. A lot of you have noticed my new header. or via twitter or facebook.

My picture was taken by a photographer in Atlanta, called Thomas Dodd. At first I was going to do a header that was more burlesque, photoshopped & more of a magazine look. While looking for Atlanta photographer I came across Thomas Dodd & loved the way some of his images are a bit dark, surreal & from a different period. Then I merged the idea with the theme I was thinking of, and let him do his magic. His work varies, and is really different, so I wasn't  exactly sure how the results would be, so along the way I got some cool pictures out of the process. 

these are 2 of his styles I like, the first is my favorite!! he's work is beautiful and continues to change, and he's a really nice guy. (you should see it live in canvas!! amazing)



DAY OF PHOTOSHOOT


My makeup & hair (weave & styling) was done by Nneka, who's one of atlanta's best makeup artists, does fab hair and also happens to be my cousin.


& these are some behind the the scenes, most you havent seen before:




Thanks to everyone on facebook that helped me vote for my header!!!it truly meant a lot. 

& the design was done by me & Ola. and he put the twitter thing in it, and came of with the font.
so the finale of my header is what you see now.

Anyways after a long days work, I took my ass partying with ma girls at Eros (yeah they're my girls from Miami), then went partying with the guys at Primal.

Pictures at Eros with Nneka, , Nk (cynthia), Danielle, Dominique:
 
omg the bang bang shrimp @ Eros Tapas Atlanta was the bomb!


When we were done. decided I still wanted to party so headed out to party with Shaun (not in pics) & Hugo.

Primal is huge, tons of rooms, people arent even aware that there's a section outside:
 
ha ha we were laughing cuz I kept taking pictures and deleting them cuz I looked like crap in all of them and sweaty!!  finally ones decent:

I had soo..... much fun that day & night, even though the rain tried to ruin the shoot, it came out well. I partied with ma people & had a blast. Goodbye Summer. I'll miss you!

After this whole experience I've realized that sometimes you have to be clear on what you want, especially if you have a vision in your head, and it might be different from what a creative expert might prefer, and it's hard to find a balance between getting what you want and not pissing people off & keeping everyone happy. It was a lovely experience, and these are all great people to work with, that will take your ideas into consideration, and work with you, revision after revision with patience

Searching for Gorgeous Turquoise Latex Sockings?

Ok so Halloween is coming, I've considered everything from Cleopatra to Isis, to MJ to a dominatrix.

wondering & hoping someone knows where I could find these: (or similar)
I've searched everywhere. I don't know who made the ones above, or what advertorial it is, but it's gorgeous. This site claims to sell them, (star latex.en.enc21) I'm super skeptical & don't know if they are legit.

the best I've found are these ones below by Atsuko Kudo & his Latex Rubber Stockings cost $132.27 (atsukokudo.com)

considering I'm not gonna prance around in only stockings for Halloween, and I'll need clothes, shoes, etc. I'd rather spend less than that for stockings. Unless I was definitely gonna wear them again.

xoxo Bombchell
(so what are you doing for Halloween!!!!! are you dressing up?)

Trip to the World's only 7 star Hotel: Burj Al Arab (in Dubai)

So in a previous post I mentioned that a lot of people I knew had visited Dubai, and some stayed at world's only 7 star hotel, which is there. & I was hoping my friends would give me permission to share it with you & she did!!! I've never been to Dubai, and um those that hotel costs about $1,592.66 to $10,889.98. oh yeah that's per night :)

 
  
 


yeah..... I think I'll keep hustling for Mrytle Beach, Vegas & Miami for now. Well my friend would rather be Anonymous, so lets call her A, for Ashley. so I can't put any pictures that show her or her family, but their still pretty badass pics. so it'll be like she took us on her trip (^_^)

OH YEAH!!! The Hotel is called: Burj Al Arab (website link)
(screen capture of the website)




Ashely stayed in this pretty badass suite! it was 2 floors, living room,dining room, freshly squeezed juice etc. And if you weren't staying in the hotel, but wanted to check it out, you could pay to take a tour, seriously, they have tours. & camera's couldnt be used by guests in certain public areas like the dinner place, to be courteous to other guess, if not you could order fabulous room service.

Look at the hotel! watch this vid I found on youtube!! A-MA-ZING, gorgeous architecture


Are you blown away yet? cuz I was even before I watched it. The Video paints 1000 pictures






Now major cool points: u know how many of us might get candy in a nice hotel, or perhaps little bottles of free hair shampoos etc, They got IPODS!! My mum from her trip was also telling me how people have gold plated cars, like the whole car's gold plated, and these are young people! wow, crazy. oooh and they also have an Dubai also has indoor Ice place thingie, with fake snow etc, where you can snow board and gorgeous Underwater hotel!!!! where you can see the fish etc. oh yeah and as for Ashley's hotel I'm looking forward to visiting & seeing all the people checking in at night with their Louis's and dark celebrity shades at night. I love Ashley she's so.... down to earth, lol i saw her facebook pictures and didnt even know that's the hotel she stayed in, until i randomly started talking about some 7 star hotel I heard of.


PS: omg at the top right of the reservation section, under the current converter look what it say:
Hotel
With your chauffeur driven Rolls Royce, discreet in-suite check in, private reception desk on every floor and a brigade of highly trained butlers who provide around-the-clock attention, you can be assured of a highly personalised service throughout your stay.

now let's enjoy Ashley's trip:

Nina Ricci Badass Eight Inch Heel-less Shoes- Fall 2009

while I was randomly flipping through the September issue of Vogue, i saw these 8 inch psycho, gorgeous red heels. They were designed by Olivier Theyskens for the Nina Ricci 2009 Fall Collections. These shoes are pretty badass, heel-less and apparently no model fell during the runway show. definitely pretty creative!!

The article basically said it's not healthy for us to wear really high heels, like this shoe, and if you want to wear this shoe, you are advised to he a healthy weight (yeah feel free to mail me a picture of it lol).  Vogue states this fact "the higher the heel, the more pressure it places on the ball of your foot, leading to"  ... insert bad stuff, trust me. ok hammer toes (digits crumpled)(images) and metatarsalgia (pain between the ball of the foot and the toes)(link)."



Now you know the bad stuff, let's get to the goodies!!!! and the badass sexy boots.

Olivier Theyskens  Nina Ricci 2009 Fall eight inch heels
