Sometimes when I am able to stop (my grind is real) and really think about my life, I have to pinch myself. It’s almost unbelievable that just over a year ago I was sitting behind a miserable tiny cubicle at Baltimore City Child Support.
Who would have thought that a year later I’d be bragging about meeting and interviewing Queen Latifah. I think that’s worth the brag right?
Well not only did I interview Queen Latifah, Golden Brooks, Marsha Ambrosius… I also flew all the way to Atlanta to meet and interview Monica.
Check out both interviews below and gasp in my new life with me. (You might wanna quit your job too)
Celebrities have the sweet life! Hair stylist on demand, makeup artist by their sides and a sea of clothes on racks just waiting to be featured for their next red carpet appearance. But what I soon realized was that most celebrities are in fact human beings just like us–go figure huh! They’ve got the same fears, frustrating worries, and pesky regrets just like you and I!
I often think back to my 7th grade school picture. My how cute my picture could have been had I not convinced my mother that I needed to have a perm the year before. So at my last red carpet event, I decided to ask my favorite celebrities what hair advice would they have given to their 14-year-old selves?
Michelle Williams, Tatyana Ali, and more reflect on what they would have done different! Check it out.
In my head, Tia Mowry and I are old girlfriends that catch up on life happenings every few months. I imagined that I must have been traveling around the world making millions which is the only reason why I missed her wedding and the birth of her, now 2-year-old, son Cree.
*wakes up from dreaming*
In real life, Tia and I met briefly last week. Over brunch we chatted about motherhood, getting ready for flu season (watch the hilarious video she stars in here), and her new role as Stephanie on Instant Mom.
Although my interview with Terrence J was just a phoner, I was super nervous. I spent hours the night before trying to research his career and I even looked at his most recent interviews (I hear that’s what reporters do, LOL).
I’m officially back in New York city (does happy church dance) and kinda sorta back in the groove. I’ve got tons of product reviews, funny a$$ vlogs, and.. wait for it… I’m bringing back my style diary! In case you were somewhere living your own life and not stalking mine (please believe I love stalkers), you might not have known that I moderated a panel on social media at The Makeup Show last week.
I’m still waiting on the footage from the actual panel, but here I am in the video below being interviewed by my good friend Monae chatting about having a successful blog. I’m at the 2:36 mark if you want to skip.
Unfortunately life and work happens all the time and sometimes balls are dropped. But my Elle Varner interview (that should have went live 3 weeks ago) is still amazeballs in my head because well…it’s freaking Elle Varner.
