As the month of April slowly come to a close I want to remind all of you that Autism Awareness is a year round thing. Don't stop, continue to educate, teach & infrom.
Besides being gifted in music, I also have skills in hair, fashion desigining and recreating, art and basically all things that require creativity I'm naturally knowledgeable (it is a gift and I'm thankful). So it's no surprise that I would link up with my childhood friend and create a line of unique Jewelry. Boundless Jewelry and Co. will provide unique pieces for that unique individual. Check out a sneak peek of some of our pieces. Find us on facebook CM Boundless and like our Business page Boundless Jewelry & Co.
Chow for now,
So I stopped by my local Dollar Tree store in Hamden and came across this nail polish by L'OREAL. I'm a sucker for pink and this color called Orchid Brilliance definitely had me wanting to give it a try and it was only a dollar WHAT THE HEY !!! I'll try it. The polish had a decent texture wasn't too thick or thin. I applied it once and it gave a very light pink cast over my nail. So I decided to put a second coat and the pink showed a little more. Overall I like the polish. Check out my hand below.
I haven't jumped off the face of the earth I'm just spending a lot of my time networking and building the Artiste Monique Brand. Not an easy task but somebody has to do it and it's going to be me. Great things are coming and I will share it on the site.

It's an honor to say this but one of the most talented firesparked artist from CT that I know recently got a deal. Congrats are in order for my extended family George Young (I know him as Gav lol) this man has established himself as a brand along with his team . You can find an array of his material all over the internet. George Young will be signing to the imprint Bare All Arms I look forward to seeing GREAT things in the future for him and his team. You can find this mastermind on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, DatPiff just to name a few. I suggest you click the links and get familiar as his brand continues to expand.
Well ........... We launched the PSA for Autism it's going well, I encourage all to share with others. I'm planning for the next projects in regards to the Pieces of me Foundation. Other than that I'm just continuously networking, working on my skills and exercising my gifts and talents. Oh I started a Tumblr and a Instagram too :) Just look up ArtisteMonique. I 'm going to use those two outlets to post rare pics you wouldn't normally see me post on Facebook or Twitter.

Today is April 2nd LIGHT IT UP BLUE for Autism Awareness Day !!! I decided to find creative ways to be and get more people involved with raising awareness. So I began to tell people via facebook, twitter, word of mouth and etc to light it up blue by wearing blue, creating a sign, something, ANYTHING that supports today and Autism Awareness month. Did you know that the numbers went from every 1 in 110 child is affected by Autism to every 1 in 88, that's right every 1 in 88 !! We MUST raise awareness, teach and inform our communities so those on the Autism Spectrum and their families will feel more accepted because their community cares to educate themselves and others about autism.
