More on Liquid Frosting Nail Color

The founder [Oh that’s me] of Liquid Frosting Nail Color had the opportunity to be featured on two of St. Louis’ local news programs this pat week. During these interviews I was able to spotlight the brand, the unique polishes that are part of the brand as well as the wonderful things the brand does for the community. If you don’t live in the St. Louis area or you do and you missed these two segments on Tuesday, check them out after the jump.

Penny Pincher

If anybody knows the value of a dollar it’s me. I wouldn’t exactly say that I’m cheap, I prefer the term frugal or money conscious. I recently decided to do a wardrobe overhaul, to work on changing my image. It is no secret I am not exactly the fashionista (give me my favorite jeans and a T-shirt and I’m happy) but I pride myself on having style. With that being said I decided to enlist the help of my friend who is the owner of Chic Stylez, LLC. Like myself she is very money conscious, but unlike me she has a keen eye for true fashion. (I will provide her contact information) I received a text from her last weekend asking if I wanted to go to the mall, JCP was having an extra 25% off sale. Ummm Yes! Who doesn’t love a sale? So without further delay we headed to the mall and as we always did we set a budget. Unfortunately, we didn’t have much luck in JCP so we continued on our shopping expedition. We ducked in and out of stores looking for some hot fashion friendly items, it wasn’t until we dropped in H&M that we found some great buys.

Straight Outta Locash Podcast

A few weeks back I had the opportunity to sit in as a guest host with the fellas of “Straight Outta Locash”. I must say it was by the best guest appearance I have done. I strongly suggest everyone not only listen to this weeks episode “The Saga of B.R.U.H” but become a regular listener of the show. I am ever so grateful that I was given the chance to provide a woman’s unbias opinion in a studio full of men! Take a listen and let me know what ya’ll think of my podcast debut.

Brand New Kind of Me

“It’s easy to pretend to be “fierce and fearless because living your truth takes real courage. Real fearless and fierce women admit mistakes and they work to correct them” .~Gabrielle Union

I’ll be the first to admit that I was not a huge fan of actress Gabrielle Union, I think it was the roles she chose to play starting out that deterred me from becoming a fan. Over the years Gabby has stepped her game up and become one of “Black Hollywood’s” favorite actresses. Gabby, along with other actresses of color attended the Black Women in Hollywood Essence Luncheon where she was presented with the “Fierce and Fearless Award.” Her speech sparked much-needed conversation not only in Black Hollywood but among average everyday people. gabby By her own admission Gabrielle spoke on the fact that at one point in her life she relished in the negativity that other actresses of color received from the media and the public. It was her speech that prompted media mogul Oprah Winfrey to do a special on her show “Oprah’s Next Chapter” spotlighting a few of Black Hollywood’s favorite actresses, Gabby being one of them. Throughout the special she discusses how at one point she was not simply acting when she played a role that required her to be “the mean girl” she was truly that girl. The more in-depth she got, the more my mouth dropped and tears began to form. I wasn’t crying because I was sad, I was crying because I was coming to the realization that I too have and at many times am that very same girl.

“Real fearless and fierce women complement other women and we recognize and embrace that their shine in no way diminishes out light that it actually makes our light shine brighter”.

Just Your Imagination

Like most children I had a couple of imaginary friends when I was growing up. I would sometimes talk to them or play with them when I wasn’t otherwise occupied with those who were among the visible. Eventually I grew out of the need for having friends that only I could see (once you come of age talking to people who don’t exist qualifies you for a check.) Now at the age of twenty-eight it appears I have made myself a few new imaginary friends. (Now before you judge me allow me to explain.)I-took-a-picture-of-my-imaginary-friend
