We’ve Been Featured: Essence Magazine


Well, we’ve kind of been of been featured in Essence. On Election Day, I voted and created a video about my experience minutes after it happened. Then, a day or so later, I wrote a quick blurb on Essence.com about my experience. Low and behold, it was featured in a Special Commemorative Magazine by the editors of Essence. The book is called The Obamas: Portrait of America’s New First Family, pictured above. Inside you’ll find a host of stunning photography and essays that will make you so proud, so compelled to be the best you that you can be. I am extremely honored to be part of history, not only by having a brief excerpt in the book, but by voting for BARACK H. OBAMA!!!!

My First Podcast!!!

Blonde, Brunette, Redhead, Brushes!


May I just say that MAC has finally created a collection that isn’t a bunch of fluff. I haven’t been too excited about any collections for quite some time, but this one is just hot. How privileged do we feel that MAC hair-color coded the whole collection for us! Don’t forget, these colors are inspired by the hair hues, but you can wear any of the colors that you choose. I wore Flip eye shadow (in the Redhead collection) for 3 days straight. It’s such a striking gold on brown skin! Just make sure you beat your crease with a darker color to make the shadow less outrageous.

I don’t know whether to be more excited about the makeup or the brushes!!! I love to always add random brushes to do random things. I’m starting to realize that even though brushes have descriptions of what they can do, they can almost always serve other purposes!!!
