How do you usually start your mornings?
Roll out of bed, probably look at IG. Say a little prayer and get going with my day.
What get's you excited about the work that you do?
Helping others improve on their natural beauty and look better, when they look better, they feel good about themselves from the inside out and it shows.
How would you describe your ideal client?
Molly from Insecure... she is a black woman, lawyer and single AF so she has to represent, be flawless on the outside and know her stuff work-wise. Therefore she does not hesitate to keep herself looking good and foster self-care to keep her inner and outer self feeling right. Not to mention she is in LA, so it comes natural because it's a must to look together amongst her surrounding environment. She doesn't hesitate to bring her A-game in work and life yet she is down to earth, stable, lives her best life, all about family and there for her bestest friends. She is a low-key influencer within her environment, so I also don't doubt she will refer me to the people in her life.
What’s one piece of advice you teach consistently, that would help someone take action today?
I would say purchase a cleanser and moisturizer that you love whether it be the packaging, the smell, the feel, whatever and make sure you cleanse and moisturize morning and night. Don't skimp on your cleanser because that is the one staple you will use most often.
Let's segue to girl talk... Where do you get most of your clothes?
Lately I'm on the Fashion Nova hype for party dresses, but other than that I am all over. I'm most definitely a Nordy girl but I like to mix it up. I enjoy shopping so buying online with Fashion Nova isn't my norm, but their prices are just so good and they appeal to the curvy woman.
What’s the best TV show you’ve binge-watched?
Insecure, catching up on the Housewives of Atlanta, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Can you describe what a night of self-care would look like for you?
A good hair wash, mask, condition and blowout and a facial with a good exfoliator and moisturizing mask.
What’s one wellness trend that you have on your list to try?
Cupping. I've seen it of course and actually want to take a class to get certified so I can offer it as a service, but I've yet to get it done.... and maybe a colonic soon too. I feel like I would feel lighter, airy and clean. Probably because I will. : )
