Roles you play in life: I’m a friend, a sister, an aunt, a daughter, a mentor, a counselor, an encourager, a motivator, a boss, an entrepreneur, a worker bee, a creator, an innovator, and a Butterfly. I think I’m missing some but you get the point.
What is your blog about? SistersWithBeauty is the premier natural hair website for to Do-It-Yourself naturals who are in search of new styles, home hair maintenance, and tips to ensure healthy hair. Specializing in original styles and content.
What made you start your blog? My passion was to show others how to do things that come as second nature to me. I also didn’t find anyone who spoke about the things that interested me in regards to natural hair. At the time I started SistersWithBeauty, product reviews had saturated the natural hair community. I just wanted to watch style videos and find ways to ensure my hair was healthy. You know what they say, if you can’t find it, BUILD IT. On Oct 11, 2011 SistersWithBeauty was born.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received? A rose doesn’t wonder what the tulips are doing; they are too busy being roses.
Finish this sentence, “To feel more centered I…”: revisit my purpose. I check in with myself to ensure I’m doing the things that make me happy. If I ever feel I’m off my rock, I look at what I’m doing that doesn’t please me and try to trim the fat.
What is your favorite travel destination? I love visiting Atlanta, GA. I’ve never arrived or departed without having a great time. And it’s cheap to travel there. Many would say an exotic place, but really money is of the essence to an Entrepreneur. And besides, ATL is a natural hair mecca of ButterFlyNess.
What three things can’t you live without? God, Hot Sauce, and SistersWithBeauty
Who is your celebrity fashion inspiration? My mother. I watched her as a child; she wowed me just like a celebrity. I didn’t grow up wanting to be anyone else other than my mother. I pull all of my influences from my upbringing of watching her navigate as the epitome of what a woman should strive to be.
What words do you live by? It’s free to be yourself, but being anyone else will cost you. Live and walk in your own light.
