Edge Control

I see fairly often on Facebook and Instagram people making fun of women with hair loss. Especially with edges. I have had my personal struggle with this and I still am. Over the years I have worn both my natural hair and I have also worn weaves, braids, interlocks and everything under the sun. But I noticed with me turning 30 and now with me having a child i'm losing hair a lot when in the past my hair was so strong and could withstand anything! Being a model it is always good to be versatile. And I know for me it is hard especially with my hair loss. But I just want to be the one to give encouragement to women out there. It is OK to have a problem and not being ashamed of what people say. I use to cringe a little seeing meme's about girls with no edges and short hair. I know that I am not alone and there are circumstances where poor hair maintenance is the reason and then there is the other situations in life that cause hair loss. I know for me especially losing the father of my child halted my hair loss at an already very sensitive state. So I am writing this blog as a series in my journey to having healthy hair and in hopes of regaining the hair loss that I have obtained over the past two years. I will give product recommendations and what ever regimes I use to take care of my hair. I also want feedback from you. What are your problem areas? What do you use? And I want to hear your stories. Let's reclaim our beautiful tresses! Lets have healthy hair!

Curvy Couture by Cherice Jackson

After admiring this designer from afar, I was honored to wear her clothing at this years West Coast Caribbean Fashion show! Her name is Cherice Jackson and the line is called Curvy Couture. Her motto is "Be your own kind of beautiful", and that is how you feel when you are in her clothing. She makes clothing for all sizes and for me being a plus model size 28 that is very important. She also uses models of all sizes on the runway. Which symbolizes a direct reflection of what she believes in as well as making the model an inspriation to women who may be watching, that they too can be their own kind of beautiful. Her line is vast, ranging from Comfy t-shirts that she coins her "empowerment" t-shirts. She also carries fun and flirty maxi dresses and sexy pieces that will have you wanting more. Anything you need she can also custom make as well. Ms. Jackson is on the fast track to fashion success! Already being featured in Queen Size Magazine and Jamila Jay's Designer Spotlight, which will be airing soon! So please go and like her page on Facebook and start ordering and look for her on a runway near you...

Congratulations Tigress!

I accompanied my mentor to Las Vegas last week for the beginning of Well-Rounded, a plus size event that happens yearly. Filled with activities, themed dances and pool parties, geared toward the plus size community and its admirers and supporters. At the formal event this year they presented an award to our own Tigress Osborn CEO of Full Figure Entertainment for her work in the BBW community. It was a total surprise to her which is hard to do LOL! For she is a career driven woman, activist, author and the list goes on. I am so proud of her for the accomplishments that she has made. And very grateful to have her as a mentor and friend. You deserve it!!
