Black Hair Magazine Feature!

Hello my luvs!

I’m so excited to share my first print feature in a major publication with you all today. Sophisticate’s Black Hair Magazine is the go-to publication for everything black hair. They feature some of the most amazing styles for all types of hair from natural to relaxed. 

One of my biggest goals for the year was to get a print feature in a magazine, so you can imagine my excitement when earlier this year Sophisticate’s Black Hair Magazine sent me a message on Instagram requesting photos. I was so shocked! I immediately went to work putting together pictures for some quick, creative looks that captivate.  I had just cut my hair to start the restoration from my hair color damage so my hair was shorter than usual. I managed to still pull off some really nice styles that I sent over hoping they would love them.

Every month that passed I would purchase this amazing publication full of trending and forward styles wondering if I would see my face. This past Sunday, that day came! 

You should have seen me in Publix trying to FaceTime hubby. It was hilarious!  Almost a full page dedicated to one of MY hairstyles. I immediately took to my social networks to share the news and glorify God. 

It’s so surreal seeing my face in a major print publication. I’m so excited to have reached this milestone and can’t wait to see what God has in store next. 

If you are striving for something, keep going and keep believing! Faith without work is dead. Do your best, do what you love and watch God move in your favor.

Be sure to pick up the November issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair Magazine! I’m on page 72.

XOXO,

Put Your Fearless Face On

So, you know how when you get glamed up you FEEL stunning? Well, the same thing goes with fealing fearless! A big part of my holiday series which you can read more about here, is about embracing our fears. Not just on your natural hair journey but in other areas of your life as well. I don’t want us to just carry the desire to be fearless, but rather to actually take action towards relinquishing our fears and going for it! The new year is fast approaching and there is no time like the present to confront your fears, whatever they may be, and do something about them. 

So, to give you all a some encouragement and Christian inspiration, put your fearless faces on and check out this great Curly Christians read on letting your faith be bigger than your fears here.

XOXO

I Motivate Naturals 2014: A legacy initiative

So, it’s been made pretty evident to me by Holy Spirit that I have the gift of motivating and encouraging others. I haven’t really known what to do with that gift since it was revealed to me but I decided to make a big faith move and put forth some genuine effort into this gift. In 2014 I’m combining my God given gift with my love for natural hair and self-love.

“I Motivate Naturals 2014” is a personal legacy campaign I’m challenging myself to carry out. I’ll be targeting several blog posts this year to all of the newly natural or transitioning beauties. Going natural is a big decision and it can unveil a lot of insecurities you never new existed. I want to motivate those women through their journey and encourage them to love themselves more than ever.

God is leading this initiative. I’m simply his vessel to remind his children of the natural beauty they posses. When I’m gone from this earth I want to have made a difference in as many people’s lives as possible. This one goes towards my legacy. So, lets go! Follow me and get motivated for your natural hair journey!
