I am super proud to be able to work with such fine folks as the gang at DLXVRSN.
Not only did I get to write for this issue (see page 66) but I also did the nails for the shoot.
That gal, Haley Marie Norman, is vibrant and simply lovely to work with!

I’m excited for tomorrow night so I thought I would share this with you all. This beautiful, funny and vivacious woman is Haley Marie Norman.
So this is how I know Haley.
I write for a magazine called DLXVRSN which is a luxury lifestyle magazine. I also get to do set work with them. Which is so fun. Lots of adrenaline and I find it addicting to watch the magic happen.
Here is Lyle (@stylebylyle) doing touch up work to make Haley look even more perfect for photographer Tim Hancock.
And watching the transformations is also really exciting!
She loved her nails that I bling-ed out for her on the perfect sea foam green.
Back to why I’m excited! DLXVRSN is having a launch party for this magazine edition at Fizz Las Vegas!
Tomorrow night I will be enjoying cocktails with this lovely gal (and other lovely people) at the event that is sponsored by the following businesses!

I get to meet (and re meet) some of the coolest people here in Las Vegas!
Here is a pic from last wednesdays mixer at Andrea’s at Encore.
Lisa Strawther, Las Vegas Make-Up artist and the lovely Miss Krista White! Find out more about DLXVRSN Magazine at www.dlxvrsn.com and to read the latest release.
This is one of those times that I LOVE my job.
There is something exciting (even though it can be crazy with timing ect) about working behind the scenes on photo shoots.
You met the nicest people. Including other behind the scenes people like make-up artists, photographer & their assistants as well as hair stylists.
Then never mind the very cool people that you get to work on!!!!
I wanted to share with you some pics of the shoot that I worked on last Saturday.
I was asked to do nails for a photo shoot with DLXVRSN magazine (a luxury lifestyle magazine) for the cover shoot. The model is actress Hayley Norman. She is a funny, sweet and lively young actress/model based out of California. She has appeared on TV (Deal or No Deal model) and on the big screen (Hancock and recently Top 5) plus much more.
I say she is a young gal because when she asked how long I had been doing nails, I asked her what year she was born in. Well Hayley is born in 1989, the same year I started doing nails! LOL
Well, it was scheduled to start at two pm but the weather here in Las Vegas had a different idea and she was rerouted and delayed for a bit.
Well, while we were waiting, we looked at the outfits and tried to decide on what color would look best for the shoot. One of the photographers assistance was a good enough sport that he let me try different colors of lacquer on his hand. (They have the same skin tone!)
Well, Hayley arrived and the makeup artist and I got right to work getting her ready for the cover shoot. Since the color was already decided it was just a matter of getting her nails looking perfect.
Triza is a local makeup artist who is so super easy to work with. We moved around each other with uncanny precision. Even though we had never worked together before, she made it super easy for us to do our jobs. And Hayley is a pro at being able to do two things at once!
Hayley fell in love with my Swarovski crystals I was wearing so we incorporated some into her nails as well!
Sorry for the blurry picture! I am definitely not the pro photographer!
There is a lot of energy and effort put into photo shoots that you may not realize. Hairdressers and make up artists are on top of the model making sure that everything is perfect and in it’s place.
Lyle of Style by Lyle (and assistant Gabriela) were there to ensure the perfect picture was captured!
And of course the photographer and his assistants are choreographing the whole shoot. Cory, one of Tim’s assistants is pictured below helping with lighting! Cory is a super cool fella with a great attitude about life and the world we live in!
Tim Hancock, official photographer for DLXVRSN magazine had it all under wraps with ease and grace!
I didn’t want to show you and of the actual pictures from the shoot so you can be super excited to see them in the Summer 2015 edition of DLXVRSN!

Well, this week is being spent making dates and setting up interview times for a couple of events that are very exciting.
A fun one that I am going to attend is tonight at FIZZ Champagne Lounge in Caesars Palace here in Las Vegas.
Hosted by Ava Rose Agency with friends and part of the Jet Setter Life (A lifestyle affair by DLXVRSN), tonight’s event is a “White Party.”
With music brought to us by Las Vegas DJ Anatolie to groove with, it should turn out to be a lot of fun.
I look forward to some good networking and seeing all the lovely people dressed in white! I will post pictures in a following post.
The other thing I am getting ready for is Cosmoprof NA that is being held here in Las Vegas July 12 – 14th at the Mandalay Bay convention center. Hosted by the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) and brought to you by Cosmoprof this is the place with
three full days of meetings, learning and networking. It’s where the beauty industry comes together!
I will have a busy schedule with interviews set up with new companies in technology, where I will get to chat with existing companies such Valentino Beauty Pure, OPI, & Jessica as well as looking forward to seeing some ground breaking products due to come on the market.
