Hey Blossoms,

If you don't already know Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sam Fine is one of my favorite makeup artists. I've done a blog post on him before and even showcased some of his work. I also have a Youtube video where I showcase a makeup look I did that was inspired by the makeup techniques he teaches. That video can be viewed HERE! Mr.Fine does amazing work. Skilled and personally selected to make up the faces of icons such as Patti LaBelle, Naomi Campbell, Vanessa Williams and Iman to name a few, he is the MAN! So of course when I received an email stating he was coming to town...not just ANY town but MY home town...HARLEM, NY I smiled! (and attempted the moon walk but it didn't turn out that well thats why its in parenthesis..lol)

I was born and raised in Harlem, running up and down the streets surrounding landmarks like the Apollo, Riverbank State Park, Sugar Hill and even the place where the FIRST attempt to assassinate Martin Luther King Jr. was made (YES there was a first attempt made!). in Blumstein's Department Store which is now a women's clothing store known as High Energy on 125th street. The year was 1958 and Dr. King who was 29 years old was attacked by a deranged woman and was rushed to Harlem Hospital where he had emergency surgery by a trauma team lead by Harlem's first black chief surgeon, Dr. Aubre Maynard, to remove the steel letter opener she stabbed him with. Ten years later in 1968 the 2nd attempt to assassinate him was made and sadly carried out in Memphis, Tennessee.

I was born in Harlem Hospital and later worked my first 2 years in EMS in that same area. Truly carrying out the saying "giving back to my community". So anytime there is an event or when I feel nostalgic I'll return to the place I love so much. Well here is an EXCELLENT opportunity to not only be around one of the greatest in the makeup artistry field but to visit my community, which is still very much a part of me. When people mistake me for being from the area I currently reside in I confidently but kindly correct them and say "No, I'm from Harlem!"

So SAVE THE DATE and if any of you are in the area be sure to drop by! Here are the details below:
