Johnson & Johnson Advertorial

Words cannot express how I felt when I saw my Johnson & Johnson Beauty Advertorial featured in ESSENCE Magazine. I'm featured giving out great skincare tips using some of my favorite products such as Johnson's Baby Oil Gel.

I've gotten so many surprise calls from people just thumbing through the magazine only to see a familiar face....such a good feeling. I want to thank everyone for all of the love and support you show me on my journey.

Beauty Segment

Last month I was ecstatic about doing another beauty segment this time it aired on WGN. I talked about Summer Makeup Trends and how we as women no matter the ethnicity, can wear some of the same colors by using different makeup techniques.

I demonstrated these techniques on a Black, Caucasian, Latina and Asian Model. Since the color Purple is hot this season, I used a purple eyeshadow as a liner on each of the models and talked about how I applied it differently on each model to bring out their eyes best. It was a really great I'm looking forward to the NEXT!

"We Are The World"

Walking into the courtyard we were so excited to see so many singers show up for the remake of "We Are The World", in support of Haitian Earthquake relief. Everybody mingled and caught up with each other until this gentleman announced all the celebrities were needed inside the building.

So there were Managers, Publicists, Friends, etc..packed outside with our eyes locked to the big screen tv's. They served up food and put out chairs and brought out heated lamps as they knew we would all be there for awhile. The energy in the building brought goose bumps down my spine as they all sang in unison that beautiful song we all know and love.

Among the voices were Jennifer Hudson, Pink, Barbara Streisand, Justin Bieber, Mary Mary, Miley Cyrus and countless others. I felt Blessed to be watching History in the making.

NAACP Awards

What a great feeling it was to be present backstage at the 41st Annual NAACP Awards Ceremony. The Red Carpet was electric and filled with every familiar face imagineable. I was so happy as I watched from backstage as they announced "Album of the Year" goes to MAXWELL!! I let out a big roar followed by an applause as if I was inside the theatre. As we left we all had smiles on our faces. And btw...that award was so deserving so kudos to Maxwell. Here's a picture which showed just how happy & proud he was.

J&J & ESSENCE Magazine Panelist

I was so elated to be approached by the Johnson & Johnson Brand to be a "Spokesperson" for a brand that's been apart of my household for such a long time. This was an easy, breezy adventure for me. So Johnson & Johnson along with ESSENCE Magazine put together some events called, "What's your beauty secret" in D.C., and NYC and guess who was to take part as a panelist..ME!

This was such an honor to be amongst the best in the beauty industry. These events very filled with beauty bloggers and everyday women who all happened to be FAB! They offered consultations by Me, Chair Massages, Manicures, Pedicures and they had some great J&J giveaways and good food, and I can't forget the D.J. who set the tone for the afternoon. We all left informed and equipped to tackle our skincare and makeup issues. I received alot of great feedback from women who attended the event so I was a happy camper! Mikki Taylor was the commentator and she did it oh so eloquently as only she can.

It felt great introducing some of my favorite Johnson & Johnson products tips such as the Baby Oil Gel...right after you step out of the shower for soft, subtle, hydrated skin. Here's some pictures from the events.
