MegaGrowth & I: Poolside Chat Event

I am so humbled and honoured to be apart of the MegaGrowth family. This past week we hosted a Summer event in LA for bloggers and media professionals. Unlike our re-launch event in Atlanta, this event was very intimate and warm. Being MegaGrowth's Beauty Correspondent, I had the opportunity to meet and mingle with amazing women!
Thank you to Ebony Magazine for your support and love! Thank you to everyone that came out- it was definitely a night to remember. I loved that everyone that attended was genuinely enthused about hair, beauty and fashion. We had such great connections and vibes with the attendees.

An..American Apparel Type of Day.

I had an amazing meeting with American Apparel this week! I can't wait to see what comes about in the next few weeks! I put together a funky summer look to emulate how I can take a bit of the American Apparel aesthetic and combine it with mine.

I'm soo happy Summer is on the way (sort of). I have a love/hate relationship with hot weather BUT I love the colors and prints that a new season brings out. I've been really getting into wearing more vibrant colors the past few months. Today I paired different saturation's of blues and turquoises together. It actually turned into a pretty chic ensemble.

Playing around with colors and prints will be my next experiment for the Summer!

Instagram worthy?

Instagram Fridays.

Happy Friday peps! In the mist of magazine deadlines I decided to hang out with some of my favorite family members today.

You can never go wrong with lunch and shopping!

The Bahamas Weekly: Recap recap recap

After I left Atlanta I flew straight to Freeport, Grand Bahamas. Luckily, this wasn't JUST a work trip so I got to hang with my family for the week as well. I interviewed some awesome designers for The Bahamas Weekly Newspaper ( I'll post the article in the coming week). The Bahamas Weekly Newspaper gave my family and I a beautiful welcoming. We where even greeted by a chic white limo from Brice Limousine ( I.E- Riding around in style?)

Aside from that, I was able to lounge around a bit and pretend like I was a real Island native ( which worked out better than I thought it would).

You can check out The Bahamas Weekly Newspaper here:

Mega Growth & I.

I just got back from an amazing trip to Atlanta to meet with my Mega Growth family! During my stay I attended the Mega Growth relaunch event hosted by Laz Alonso and Tatiana Ali.  I am SOOOOO excited to be working with such an historical company that supports hair and beauty in every way.

I will be hosting an LA event for Mega Growth the first day of the summer! I'll keep everyone updated on the date and location!

I Just..Write About..Stuff.


Check out my piece on The LA Fashion Magazine's site- covering the LAFW Go Red event!

In Retrospect Of It All..

Things that don't matter:
 judgements. fear. being right. desire. spotty wifi. dressing on the side. carbs.gas prices

Things that matter:


Inspiration, please.

I can choose what affects me.
I can choose to not be damaged.
I can choose to not be afraid.
I can choose to look at mistakes as learning experiences.
I can choose to be confident.
I can choose to be happy.I can choose to feel loved.
I can choose.

We all have power over our lives. It may be difficult to see, but it’s always there. We always have a choice.

LA Fashion far.

So far... LAFW has served its social purpose; the meet & greets and mingle stations have upgraded their stats. I must admit that the past few seasons I have been pretty disappointed. I did see great improvement in designer quality and aesthetic- which is awesome.

Hopefully next week * Market Week* will brighten the lights shinning down on our LA streets.

Cut Me Some Slack..Please?

This week was pretty hectic for me. I learned, this week especially, that being a woman is hard! (lol) Juggling work and making sure I'm constantly outdoing myself is a struggle. I'm learning to cut myself some slack and not be tooo hard on myself. Nevertheless, amazing things always seem to come my way when I push myself to the edge.

I am officially the West Coast Beauty Contributor at African Pride Beauty. I will be heading to Atlanta early next month for a few events with them and to meet the AP team. Right after that I will be running off to Freeport, Grand Bahamas for a vacation..sort of.

I am the newest Contributor of The Bahamas Weekly and, in between vacation time, will be doing some fashion segments with Bahamian designers. I'll be sure to post them on my website and blog for you guys!

When you believe in yourself..anything is possible.

Forever Young.

This is the love of my life. It saddens me a tad bit to say that he is growing up! My nephew turned 2 years old today. In the mist of his fellow peers running around an in-door playground and me trying to blend in with them, I realized how privileged I am to be able to watch his process of life.

Everyday he is learning something new and testing the waters. His progress is inspirational.

&..this is me.

I learn so much from my nephew about what is really importrant in life- all of the little things that we take for granted. I made a vow to myself to try a bit harder everyday to smile, to be positive and to invest in love. So's working out nicely.

I am so honored to say that I am the newest member of African Pride ( you know, those old school hair care products your mom used?).  I have been deemed their West Coast Contributor and, after my trip to ATL to hang with the AP crew, I should be ready to hit the ground running in just a few months ( . Aside from that you can catch some of my work on the Fashion Grunge blog next month ( and Vibe Vixen.

Optimal Health, It's Possible.

Shout out to Jennifer!

Think life is a little different for her now? She has hypothyroid syndrome and struggled to lose weight since she was diagnosed. Finally lost 72 pounds, 13 inches off her waist and... 10 off her hips. Chronic plantar fasciitis and insulin resistance is gone just like that!

Now she has the energy to chase her little culprit, and not just chase her but catch her, throw her in the air, twirl her around, wrestle her to the ground, and tickle her!

Congrats love! I'm not too far from reaching my goal both physically and mentally. When I first started the program I was probably the most worrisome and stressed person in the world but that has gradually changed. Learning about my *not-so-great* habits and how to change them has been a LIFE "SAVA"! #TSFL #OptimalHealth

Shake it Off, Life Is Too Short.

In the mist of going through the motions with VIBE Vixen and Planet Africa ( I'm up to be their LA Beauty Contributor), I decided to go out and young. You should do the same. I'm a stress-a-holic but quickly realizing that it's not the best habit to adopt. What's for you..will be ( whether you stress about it or not).
