The first few moments of a photo shoot are always the most intimidating for me… I don’t fit into a box or a category, I am colorful and untamed, changing with each life event and situation, and always producing something different.

So far, the most difficult thing about this competition is switching from the role of model to photogopher. I have to think past composition, facial expression, and body positioning and now have to focus on picture quality, lighting, etc. This has been no easy task. I have grown to respect the roll of photographer so […]
I’m not new to Jamaican Mango & Lime products, my mother and I have trusted both the Locking wax and gel for twists and twists outs since I went natural two years ago.
As a busy working student, I never have time to pamper myself, and usually, things like skin care are definitely at the bottom my list. Especially if my options are expensive products that clog my pores or trips to the spa. So, the option to try a do it yourself, natural product was something I’ve […]
I will never forget my big chop. It was impulsive; I couldn’t wait to get to the nearest mall to have my permed hair removed forever.

Oh my goodness, it just hit me that it's almost over! The contest, that is. Time sure does fly, doesn't it?
Finally! I'd been wondering when I was going to get to model my funky, little fuzzy, brown hat. This was my absolutely fav of all the goodies we received.
Oh let’s see… Try ALL the products in the Eden Body Works’ Peppermint Tea tree hair pack and then choose my favorite. Would that even be possible? Decisions, decisions.
Challenge 4 has been the most challenging so far. This week we are actually modeling jewelry. Since I’m not a photographer, my biggest problems have been with lighting and the camera settings.

To be honest, I’ve always known better than to sleep on cotton, but still I did. The rationale behind sleeping on satin made so much sense, but still I never bothered. I was intrigued by this second challenge. I wanted to see if I’d truly feel a difference.
JUST A FEW PICS OF ME

One day after all the confusion had settled, I was looking at the going-natural site and said to myself, you know what? I just may do it! Why not? I was lucky enough to have gone from saying, "That could be me" to "That could've been me." What an eye opener! I thought about the […]
