Black Girls Rock 2018 Recap!

Happy October Everybody! Hope you're having a great day. Can you believe we have just a few more months until the year is over? Time is flying!


Recently, I got the chance to host a television special for BET Africa and BET International for their Black Girls Rock All Access Special! It was a chance to go behind the scenes of the show and capture what dosen't make it on TV. I interviewed our fave celebrities backstage and got upclose and personal with a few stars on the red carpet. It was a very eventful and fulfilling two days. So much black girl magic!


For the occasion I wore a two piece from Queen E Collection  for day one of the special.


I love when a look comes together - my makeup and hair were bomb too so I felt super confident and ready to capture some magic!


Let's fast forward to the day of the show - as evidenced by my smile I was waaaaay too excited!

On the carpet I caught up with actress Amandla Sternberg. I have watched her grow over the years and it's always such a joy to chat with her. She was one of my first celebrity interviews so I am forever indebted to her and her mama.

Also caught up with gospel songstress Yolanda Adams and her daughter on the carpet! Like mother, like daughter...the beauty runs deep in that family!



One of my FAVE interviews of the night! The one and only Fantasia. Y'all she is so special, we are lucky to witness the talent that is Fanny. She greeted everyone when she walked in the room and you can immediately feel her positive energy. She is such a light!

I also got a chance to interview one of my fave singers EVER - Jazmine Sullivan. We kiki'd on the carpet and chopped it up about her performance at Black Girls Rock.

Overall I had a great time. I am so blessed to call this passion of mine a job. Here's a toast to the rest of 2018, can't wait to see where my next adventure takes me!

Essence Festival Looks - Day One!


Hiiiiiii! 

Over the past weekend, I traveled from New York City to New Orleans to attend one of the biggest festivals in the country - ESSENCE Festival! Y'all already know ESSENCE was gon' bring the funk! It was so lit being there, black women came out in record breaking droves to attend the three day fest!


For the first day - I wore a three piece ensemble from the brand Milly. I loved this outfit so much. I literally got complimented everywhere I went. The love was def in the air. Styled by @stylemonster, this green number was so seamless to transition from day to night. 

It was perfect for my busy schedule!


I was so happy to be at ESSENCE to do a bit of work (I hosted a chat on the Center Stage with late night host Robin Thede) but truthfully it wasn't all work and no play. I also trekked to NOLA specifically to see pop icon Janet Jackson. I love her!! She is the ultimate Queen, still performing and killing it at age 52. #GoalsAF




It was truly a beautiful weekend! If you want to see more head over to my Instagram to see more behind the scenes content!

Stay tuned for more of my weekend in NOLA!

Red Carpet Rewind: My Experience at the 2018 BET Awards!

Happy Monday y'all! Hope you're doing great!


Last week Sunday, I was granted the opportunity of a lifetime - to host the BET International Glitz and Glam red carpet! Woo-hoo!! Can you tell I was excited?

Hysterics aside,  I was honestly  honored to be called to host the coveted carpet at the 2018 BET Awards! It's a huge responsibility but I love the excitement and spontaneity of the red carpet, so in the words of Tiffany Haddish #sheready

Additionally, BET International was celebrating their 10 year anniversary so it was definitely a milestone moment to celebrate. 

I chopped it up with a few of our fave celebrities - like our gorgeous gal pal Gracelle Beauvais! She's so nice and not to mention absolutely beautiful!

South Africa's own Cassper Nyovest was one of the Best International Act nominees and I gotta tell you - he deserves all the good things coming his way. He's so down to earth!

And shout out to Davido! The Nigerian singer won the award for Best International Act. His music was EVERYWHERE this year so this win was totally deserved! By the way, did you know that this was the first year the BET Awards announced the Best International Act onstage at the award ceremony? 

While I was talking to Davido, NBA superstar Victor Oladipo crashed our interview...well not really crashed..he saw Davido and stepped up to the podium and I invited him to stay. So Victor was more than welcome. Love to see our African peeps killing the game!

I also chopped it up with other celebs such as actress Storm Reid, singer Miguel and rapper T.I and a slew of other stars! All in all it was a great day! 

It was super hot day in Los Angeles but we still soldiered on. 

What an inspiring night, cheers to celebrating black excellence!

See you next year at the 2019 BET Awards!

You Should Know: Cantu Hair Products Are Now Available in South Africa



You know by now that I am obsessed with finding the latest and greatest natural hair products. A really dope hair product must provide nourishment, volume and long lasting style to my curls. I need my hair to look effortless - even I've spent hours upon hours taking care of it.

In the past I've told you about my love for Dark & Lovely's Au Naturale line but another brand that I need to spread the gospel about is -- Cantu. And good news for my people in South Africa - well specifically Johannesburg - you can now buy Cantu at your local Clicks or Dis -Chem stores. Awesome right?


What I love most about Cantu is the affordable price point. Anyone from the curly community can attest to how expensive it can be to buy great products. To get you started see below for a great tutorial on how to get that bomb twist out. And then make sure you follow them on Facebook for more content.




UPDATE: Cantu is also availble in Ghana and Nigeria! Hooray!

The Kenyan beauty has the most beautiful hair and I love it when she lets us in on her hair secrets. A few days ago she shared her latest tutorial - twists out with hanging bantu knots. From her site African Tresses and Treats, she writes "Hanging bantu knots are just regular bantu knots done at the ends/ tips of the hair. This method gives your twist outs great definition, bounce and volume."

You don't need a whole lot of product or crazy skills to get this look. Just a moisturizer, a sealant, Afro pick and clips. Easy!! Head over to Sheila's site to get the deets on how to get your curls your curls poppin. And make sure to check out the tutorial below as well...
