• My Newest Gig! Mixed Chicks Rocks!

    One of the many reasons why I haven’t been posting as frequently as in the past is due to my serious influx of freelance work ever since the new year began. From writing for Juicy Magazine, Sister 2 Sister and JET Magazine to working full-time as a digital copywriter for a marketing/advertising firm to editing and creating content for Compendium Publishing, the group that handles CVS Reinventing Beauty, I am booked solid these days! Well, I am so happy to announce my newest venture which I started in February of this year. I handle all social media for the amazing hair care company Mixed Chicks! If you haven’t heard of Mixed Chicks, you need to check them out! Mixed Chicks is the brainchild of friends, mixed chicks and curly girls Wendi Levy and Kim Etheredge. They created the hair care line after so many years of frustration in search of products that would work well with their multi-textured tresses. It is truly an honor to be working with these two incredible ladies and their staff! To check out my blog posts - click here.

  • Product Review: Design Essentials Daily Moisturizing Lotion

    As a curly girl over the years, I have come to appreciate the art of experimentation. When it comes to picking out products that give me the curls of my dreams, I have tried just about everything on the market and am always on the lookout for new launches. One of my current favorites is Design Essentials Daily Moisturizing Lotion. This lightweight nourishing styling aid is the perfect go-to product for my daily curly regimen. After rinsing my hair or lightly spritzing it with water to get my curls activated and alive, I squeeze about a quarter size amount of the Moisturizing Lotion into the palm of my hand and generously rake it through my curls and waves. It smells delicious and instantly adds definition to my curls while keeping my hair shiny and healthy-looking. . With olive, cocoa and jojoba oils, my hair is instantly hydrated while wheat proteins add shine and give my hair that added polish.

    This amazing styling aid is a must-have for curly girls of all textures!

    Design Essentials Daily Moisturizing Lotion, $13.99,

  • Product Review: Urbanbella Signature Series Hair Care Line

    One of the perks of being a beauty writer and blogger is getting the opportunity to try out new products. Just the other day, I received a package from Urbanbella - a curly hair sanctuary nestled in the heart of Buckhead, a tony neighborhood in Atlanta. Along with curly hair consultations and styling, Urbanbella sold many of the top curly hair care brands on the market including; Curls, Jane Carter Solution Phyto, Hair Rules and many more. Over the years, Keneesha Hudson, the owner of Urbanbella decided to venture out and create her own signature hair care line for curly hair.

    That’s how Urbanbella Sigature Series Hair Care came about. Keneesha had the desire to produce a quality hair care line that addressed all of the needs of her clients and curly hair women everywhere. One of the very first things I noticed when using this line is the incredible scents. Being that the aroma of a product is highly important to me, I was super happy that each product smelled utterly delicious. Another aspect that caught my attention is that this collection is paraben, silicon and sulfate-free. As someone who seeks out healthy hair care, skincare and beauty products, I was thrilled at the prospect of treating my hair to a healthy line of products that wouldn’t cause any damage or harm.
