I’ve been crushing on Eden Bodyworks since I was introduced to the brand last summer. I did an awesome in-store event with them at Wal-mart where my love grow deeper. Fast forward to today and… nothing’s changed. It’s still my go-to shampoo and conditioner.
I’m so excited to be featured as a part of their blogger favs promotion and I am even more excited that YOU get to benefit from my obsession.

Every girl should have a go-to little black dress to wear; every girl should also know how to style said dress! Wearing something as simple as an LBD allows you to show off your signature style. Whether it’s loading the arm with accessories, or sporting a bright colored pair of tights–simplicity gives you a chance to be creative.
The first blog post I ever wrote was about Naomi Campbell and a funny tee-shirt I saw. I didn’t know a thing about blogging, SEO, or what WordPress was or did.
In the beginning Gorgeous In Grey wasn’t even me! She was just this girl (formerly known as Hey Bella Blog–only my real readies remember her!) who wanted to find her space in the internet. She knew blogging was the next big thing, and wanted to be a part of it. Only thing was… she wasn’t clear on what she wanted back from it.
She was a hot mess! She wrote about celebrity sightings, gossip news, and threw in an occasional embed from a popular tv show. Somewhere along the way, she realized that gossiping on the web was not her cup of tea. Mainly because the crunch to get the stuff up first was a real struggle. And in that world, writing doesn’t matter as much. But who was the first to post it, does!
So back to the basics she went. Realizing that writing was her first love and that their was one subject she knew better than anyone else–hands down! She knew who she was. She knew the woman she wanted to be, and, she knew the woman she wasn’t. So Gorgeous In Grey was born! Just a simple online diary of the sh*t I love.
That was three whole years ago! Today my blog is my crutch, my resume, my therapy couch–it’s my baby. There’s not a moment in the day that goes by where I don’t think about how I can use this platform I’ve created to express myself. I think about what I want to share with the world. Which is usually everything!
I’ve shared my move to the big apple, dealing with my mother having cancer, my new job–you’ve been there with me with each post. People ask me all the time, “How do you start a blog?”
Simple! Find your passion and write. All of the advertising dollars, free products, events, and other cool stuff will come if you create a genuine space for yourself. No one can teach you how to genuinely be yourself. That my dolls, you have to figure out.
So what I have I learned? That life will happened. People will judge you. You will get hurt. But what makes you a better person is how you react to life. What will make you happy is your reaction. I am having the time of my life. Simple because I changed how I thought about life.
Because I love you! And it’s my blogiversary! I’ve got a gift for you. From my good girlfriend Jennifer Quinn. It’s an amazing necklace (that I would totally rock) from Stella & Dot.
It looks like we can officially bury that old hot pressing comb of ours, and introduce our tresses to the EdgeStick–a safer alternative to the hot comb–thanks to Jason Ray of Suntek Global. He first captured the beauty industry’s attention in 2011 when his ceramic hot comb won an Essence Magazine Beauty Award. I’ve had my eyes on the genius invention ever since.
Jason and his team sent an EdgeStick my way to test and, boy oh boy, I am in love!
Mizani’s Spring Trend 2013 event was hosted by the stunning, vivacious, Queen of curls and laughs Kim Coles. A night of spoken word, laughs and natural tressed women from all walks of life graced the beautiful Loreal Academy in Soho on Wednesday night.
Kim was a vision in the official pantone color of 2013, emerald green, her face was beat to the Gawds by the amazing Renny Vasquez, and hair of course courtesy of the celebrated Mizani’s Supreme Oil Line. The line which caters up to type 8 hair (which is tightly coil with no movement; that would be me) and is formulated with a blend of eight natural oils, that penetrate deeply and absorbs instantly without leaving that greasy feeling. Right on!
The crowd got words of appreciation and encouragement from Atlanta poet, Abyss. He shared with the crowd his great esteem for us women; he was such a Southern gentleman. Also in the house was “Love and Hip Hop” cast member, Olivia who rocked a popping red lip Ruby Woo and Amanda Seales from “Best Week Ever” who handled the one and twos.

I am having a total swoon moment with Cassie‘s ASOS Magazine spread. She’s part of the reason why I’ve kept my mohawk for so long. Each time I think about chopping the back of my hair she tweets an oh-so-fabulous image and I am sold again.
This time she is flaunting all of her cuteness for ASOS Magazine in their latest editorial. Word is she may also have an album about–not sure we care about her singing?!
Check her out and enjoy the swoon (click on any image to start the gallery)!
