What's been going on with Iris


I think you may like to hear about what is going on in my life. As you may or may not know, I am a mom. It takes a lot to be a good mom, a good wife, a good employee, a good housekeeper, a good cook, a good YouTube video maker, a good dog mom and a good friend.

When you juggle this much, some things get dropped.

But for the most part, I try to keep everything afloat.

The holidays have been great to me. I love everything that came with it. My husband bought me a lot of cool things this year for my videos! Isn't he great? You will always hear me boast about him, hence my screen name.

He bought me 2 coastal scents shadow palettes: 1 regular and one shimmer, I also love to continue to use the Personi. You will see me make a lot of videos with that palette.

He bought me a set of mac brushes and a Stila blending brush.

I got some ankle weights for my walks with baby and dog (which I LOVE and wanted!)

We spent the evening at my in laws. Hubby's brother and his family came over. It's always nice to spend time with them.

I ate so much though! I ate about 5 tamales that night. I know I gained some weight LOL! But I have been working out. Why just the other day, I went to the gym and burned a lot. I am still sore and it's been 3 days since that hard workout. I also went yesterday. I plan on going today.

I always have these ideas for making videos. But the problem is, it takes me about 1 hour to get things ready: set up, lighting, makeup, tools etc. About 40 minutes to shoot because I have to stop and start, stop and start to get the right angles etc. And then about 1-2 hours to edit a video! With a baby, that's tough to do all at once. I do it in spurts. As you can imagine, I don't get to do all of the ideas I have in my head.

Perhaps when our baby gets older? I don't know.

What I am looking forward to in 2010? To be better at everything I do.

For now, I want to thank all of you who have stuck around in 2009, watching my videos. Thank you for following my blog. I wish more of you who read this, would comment and not just move on. It's nice to see that people actually read what I write. It motivates me to come back and write more.

Hope you are doing well and best wishes for you and yours!

Where I get my hair cut and styled

Click on the pictures to zoom in, if you want to :)

Recently, I went to get my haircut at this salon. The last time I got it cut was in this video. The person who cuts my hair in the video, is not the same one I went to this time.

I try to get my hair cut every 6 weeks, but being a new mom, it's been tough to be constant.

It was wonderful. I totally loved how my hair came out. My hair feels so light :) My stylist's blow drying skills are amazing. I wish I had her to do my hair every day :)

Anyway, if you are in the Southern Cali area, and need a new do, give her a call.

Ask for Mary. Tell her Iris on You Tube sent you.

What I do

I make hair tutorials on YouTube. But I created this blog to connect with my fellow writers/bloggers. I've also created a myspace account, but I don't like the format for blogging. I'd rather blog here. As far as something to note about me: I rarely have will power when it comes to dieting. I'd rather eat what I want, but in moderation. I like girly stuff, but I don't like doing my own hair. I rarely do my own hair, so if you saw me in the street, you'd probably not recognize me. But if you ever saw me, I would love it if you came to say hi. Thanks for reading my blogs.
