What I am Thankful For - Davida Simon
What I am Thankful For - Davida Simon
THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2010

Thankful, grateful, appreciative … all words that come to mind when I think of my family, friends and yes, even my pets.
 
I remember an instance several years ago when I found out I had to have heart surgery. Since my family was in Chicago and I live in Colorado, my friends were with me both for the initial medical test and for the nine-hour surgery.
 
My sister flew in to be with me as well as several family members. A week before the surgery, while applying makeup on an actress for a TV show, I told her of the upcoming surgery. She starred into the mirror looking at my reflection and said, “How can I help?”  That seemed to be the response from everyone. One friend brought lists and charts of family’s, airport arrivals, and departures, who would make grocery purchases and food preparation and who would stay with me after surgery.

Various television production companies, on finding out I wouldn't be able to go to the film stages to do makeup, called with research projects I could do at home. One of the airbrush makeup company owners hired me to answer online questions to their customers with a hefty check to keep me going financially. As a form of home exercise my cousin, both her dog and mine, danced around my dining room table with disco music blasting from the stereo laughing and singing as the dogs ran after us barking and wagging their tails.
 
In a time of fear, confusion, and pain everyone was there for me. Without the help of friends and family my healing would have not gone as well as it did. I am so very, very thankful for them.

Davida was one of the makeup artists to the hit show Extreme Makeover and consultant to several of Denver’s News Channels. “The Makeup Room website gives me the opportunity to provide information to busy young women that gives them more insight on developing their image.”
 


Helping women feel good about themselves is a creative force that runs through makeup artist Davida Simon, creator of themakeuproom.com. Simon has worked in film, television, and photography with such notables as Susan Lucci, Demi Moore and Brad Pitt, as well as CEOs’ and government officials. Besides working as a makeup artist on tv and commercial shoots, Davida’s busy life includes testing and reviewing cosmetics, beauty expert on ABC, CBS and Fox affiliates, educator and freelance beauty writer.  A special passion is helping women and teens undergoing chemotherapy, through American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better program.

Real Housewives
Real Housewives
THURSDAY, MARCH 25, 2010

The Real Housewives of Atlanta have been signed on for a third season. The new season of the New York Housewives just premiered in March, right after the Real Houswives of Orange County finished.
 
I am such a reality junkie and am completely addicted to the Real Houswives series. I have watched them all from the OC to New Jersey. Everytime they confirm a new season, I can't help but get all excited. 
 

Have you watched any of the Real Housewives series on Bravo? Which is your favorite bunch of women?

Kate Gosselin on Dancing with the Stars
Kate Gosselin on Dancing with the Stars
TUESDAY, MARCH 23, 2010

Kate Gosselin the famous mother of eight, has been signed on to be a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. She has been critisized by her ex-husband Jon Gosselin for leaving the kids back at home in Pennsylvania while she travels back and forth to LA for the competition. Although Kate will be travelling, Jon was not granted extended custody of the children due to his past actions. Kate has made a statement in People Magazine saying that her kids are in good hands while she is travelling and that moms are also allowed to have some fun.

I am rooting for Kate on the competition and can't wait to see how she does.

Do you think that Kate should have joined the competition or do you think she should have stayed home?

Will you be tuning in to see her on Dancing with the Stars?

Project Runway
Project Runway
TUESDAY, MARCH 09, 2010

After rocky ratings for moving the show from Bravo to Lifetime and from NYC to L.A., Project Runway has returned to New York City for their 7th season. They still haven’t seen the ratings they once did and in efforts to fix this they keep bringing in guest judges such as Eva Longoria and Nicole Richie. They have also created a spin-off, Models of the Runway in which we learn about the models from the show. They are now releasing a video game for the Nintendo Wii in which Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia will be featured.

I personally love Project Runway and would love to have it come back for more seasons. How do you feel about it?
