My brushes are all clean from Monday’s shoot and ready for more shoots tomorrow and Friday! I need a brush washing assistant - haha.

This is super duper cool. Can we stop it with the gas and electricity and fossil fuels now, please? I mean… FOSSIL fuels. Let’s get with the times. I hope this is why they delayed the iPhone 6 (or so the rumors say)! xoxo, Mandiesunshinychick:

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

Kail, represented by Ohlsson Model Management, is the other model whose makeup and hair I did for the shoot at the mansion for Heidi Calaway (vintage clothier and wardrobe stylist) by James Conway. She is beyond gorgeous!

Wow, this ad from 1917 is not too shabby! I could go on for a LONG time about a couple things I’d like to expand or modify slightly… But otherwise… Let’s just go back about 100 years food-wise, please, shall we? This is before we started eating products that we call food that are really closer to plastic, youknowwhatImean? xoxo, Mandie

It’s time for a #sweatyselfie post Body Beast! I did not feel like working out today for some reason, but I knew my challenge group was counting on me, so I did Beast Cardio & Beast Abs anyway! So glad I did! 💜💜💜 Did you know if you post a #sweatyselfie (using that hashtag) and tag @beachbodyhq, you could win a prize pack including the 3-Day Refresh (how I lost 6.5lbs in 3 days - bye bye bloat!), Shakeology, a workout program, & recovery formula?! Yes, please! XOXO, Mandie

About a month and a half ago, I did makeup for a photoshoot in an incredible mansion near my house - about a half mile away. It was AMAZING. I did hair and makeup for two models, and then modeled myself. It was for the portfolios of the models, as well as a vintage clothier and wardrobe stylist here in Milwaukee. The house had TONS of outrageous authentic art pieces and was impeccably decorated. Here are the first few shots! The model was Nancy Matteson. Photographer was James Conway, and wardrobe was by Heidi Calaway. As I said, I did hair and makeup. More images coming soon!

My quest to do a selfie with everyone I do hair and makeup on for photoshoots has about a 42% success rate. Yesterday, I upped it to 50%.  Aren’t they gorgeous? Well, except for the creepy joker… Looking forward to two more days of shooting this Thursday and Friday, though I doubt it will be this glamorous! 😉 (at Milwaukee Athletic Club)

This… SO much this. I feel like I am STILL figuring out who I am, and coming to terms with it. People older than me - does it ever stop, or are we always learning about ourselves? xoxo,Mandie

Remember back in January when I was a @bexnewyork  Bex Kitten (Click on that link & scroll down if you don’t)? Well, I am so proud of Bex, because Beyonce’s dancers were wearing her bras at the VMAs on Sunday! She’s going places! Love it! xoxo, Mandie
