It’s not easy…

I don’t know about the other competitors of the Miss Nappturality contest but I know for me, this contest isn’t easy! LOL  I had no idea, it was as hard as it is to model and do things “just right.”  This has taught me an important and valuable lesson.  I have a newfound respect for models and their profession.  It isn’t easy taking a whole bunch of pictures, changing, keeping up your momentum. 
Take for instance week 3, whew chile! We had to represent Jamaica…so its November and there I am half dressed laying all out on the sand, in the water! LOL  The next day, you guessed it, I was sniffling, and sneezing.  But you know what? I had a blast, and if I had the chance I would do it all over again!

 I have never been considered beautiful, especiallly when I was younger. So this contest has really boosted my self-esteem, and helped me realize that yes, I am beautiful, and I am worthy just like anyone else. Shew, we all are! We are made in his image so we are beautiful. 
This contest has taught me humility, patience, and beauty of self.

Thank you going natural, I appreciate it.

Challenge 4

Just posted Challenge 4…ugh, it was tough narrowing down which photos to choose…But hopefully I made the right decisions!  This time around I spent a little more time on the article than usual.  When receiving the challenge, I worked on the article portion immediately and set up my photoshoot a little earlier b/c I am finding that it has become too difficult to submit in time!  I’ve been submitting at 1159 on the dot lol  b/c from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown I observe the Sabbath, so it gives me one less day to work on my submission b/c I avoid leisurely things and working etc…. But I think the time constraint makes me get on my grind even more (??) 

I enjoyed myself once again…Just got a package today from going natural.  Nu Ade’ is the product…Interested in finding out the Challenge for it:) 

P.s…I got a spider bite or something on my shoulder last week…I have to get it checked out ASAP!  Im very thankful I didnt get it on my face or anywhere visible (phew).  It itches like crazy though:(

challenge 6

we are getting closer and closer to the end…I submitted challenge 6 last nite and hope that it is received well.  I got to shoot with one of my favorite photographers!  He shoots hair really well…I got my hair done for the first time in a looooooooong time!  Took me back to the days when I used to get cornrows as a kid, except alot less painful lol…

After this competiton i want to cut my hair off to start fresh.  My hair has gone through alot from being under stress about a year ago…It broke off and thinned out like crazy and im getting fed up with it!  So ima get as many wonderful photos of my hair as possible before I start over…

 In the meantime vote and comment on our pics for “Am. Next Natural Model” and stay tuned for Challenge 6:)
