Happy November 25th!
That’s the sunset we just watched with full bellies! I pray your day was filled with love, family and friends. I’m back in northern Cali for the holiday and loving this time off! It’s like being able to press the reset button and it’s like old times. My brother and Mommy and I, just us, spending quality time. QT for us is wrestling, CONSTANT pranking and lots and lots of hugs and kisses. I’m in heaven. We’re also having real conversations. Prayers are being answered every time we allow ourselves to be vulnerable and open with each other. We’ve come such a loooong way as a family and for THAT I am thankful!
Mommy and I went grocery shopping last night for dinner. She had bought a few things, but they weren’t my favorites: collard greens, sweet potato pie, … Read More »
“REFRESH, REFRESH! Try to bring it up on your iPad too! REFRESH!”
That’s what you could hear in my apartment last year on Christmas morning if you were within 10 feet of my front door. My dear friend @Jouelzy was in town and we woke up that morning to LOTS of messages and texts from friends announcing the AMAZING deal from Etihad Airways to Abu Dhabi. I had never been to Abu Dhabi so I was super intrigued. I had gone to Dhabi for my 26th birthday while living in Sudan, Africa but the thought of being in the U.A.E. with. friends was even more exciting!
To be honest, I didn’t take on the planning of this trip like I usually do. Too much was going on and I approached it with a “been there (to the U.A.E.), done that” type of attitude. Another … Read More »
Hey Loves! Wanted to stop by and share some updates with you. I’m SUPER DUPER BUSY, which means I’m super duper blessed! Take a look at some events that I’ll be attending and/or featured at below.
Where have YOU been if you didn’t know about this one? LOL, I’m so excited about the I Define Me Tour Women’s Empowerment Event on Sunday in London! I leave for the UK tomorrow and haven’t packed. HA! Let’s not go there….everything is packed in my head….Just needs to be put in the bag. LOL!
Next weekend is also very eventful and exciting!
Here’s my most recent video where I explain alllll UH DIS! :)
One thing I’m not afraid of is an event…with FOOD! When I got the invite to attend Ursula Stephen’s The Beauty and the Brand Event I was exxxcited! The event took place in July, but I still wanted to recap for you all! :)
I love my girl Ursula and all that she’s doing with Motions as their Celebrity Hair Stylist. I knew the event would be fun and classy! I wore my lace jumpsuit/romper from BCBG Maxazria Factory Outlet. I’d been WAITING to pull it out to wear to such an event as this one. I wore my nude pumps also from BCBG Maxazria and gold accessories. The belt is from a discontinued spot in Las Vegas’ Fashion Mall, the necklace is from Forever XXI, and the bangle is from Romwe.com!
The event was held in the Nolitan Hotel in … Read More »
Updates Updates Updates! So much has been going on, and I’m SO excited to share some exciting updates surrounding the I Define Me Tour – Women’s Empowerment Brunch in NYC!
If this is your first time hearing about the brunch make sure to check out idefinemetour.com and @idefinemetour on all social media platforms! My goal with launching this tour is to foster great conversations surrounding inner beauty while also chit chatting about all of the outer beauty stuff us ladies like to talk about. It’s a girlfriend’s gathering with a purpose!
I’ve learned SO much about hosting events in the last few months. Some things I would definitely do differently, and others I’m so glad I did! This wasn’t an idea that a brand approached me about. It’s a passion project pretty much funded by my friend and I. Rachael Sealy (co-host … Read More »
LOVES! I’m wrapping up blog posts as we speak, while I’m exporting a very special message for you all…that will be below once it’s uploaded. LOL!
For the past SEVERAL months I’ve been working on a VERY special project called the I Define Me Tour. Rachael Sealy (@justrachy/@ukanturals) and I connected on some “otha” type of level on how we’d love to organize a small event that focused on developing inner beauty and confidence to match the outer beauty we see in the natural hair community. So we did!
Take a look at this video to learn more about it, check out the website (www.idefinemetour.com) and follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram!
Peace & Blessings,
A Short Recap & Thank YOU!
I’d like to thank all of you who came out to my Dallas, TX Meetup last month at Bread Winners in the NorthPark Mall. I had such a good time meeting you all and talking about natural hair, beauty and our image in the media! Here are some shots my lovely assistant Tosin O. took while we were mingling!
Special thanks to the sponsors @EntwineCouture and @OriginalMoxie for the product samples!
It’s a celebration!
You’re in for a treat! There’s a movement going on that’s centered around individuality. Motions Salon Hair Care urges us to be whatever it is that we want to be, especially when it comes to beauty. As Ashunta Sheriff put it here, ” if you have a weave and want big, funky, curly hair”, #DoYou! I’m absolutely here for this! If you’re asking yourself, “how can I explore my individuality”, I’ve got some inspiration for you!
Personally I think the ability to #DoYou is about knowing who you are. It’s about how you define yourself and embracing that uniqueness. Which is why I thought that #iDefineMe is another great way to celebrate and explore this movement.
During my trip to Hollywood for the Think Like A Man Too premiere last month I hung out at the Hollywood & Highland Center. I stopped … Read More »
