BAM

Sunday, May 29th, 2011

Every Memorial Day weekend The Brooklyn Academy Music (BAM) has an African Arts festival that includes an array of food, clothes, art,  jewelry, hair care items and so much more. One of the main events at BAM is the African dance performance that features a different African dance theme each year. This year a company from Cuba is the main attraction. I saw them perform last week during a preview show and they were spectacular.

After watching their dance routine, for the first time in a long time, I thought about continuing my African dance training. I always enjoyed that style of dance because it can be very magical and the steps tell a story with lots of personality.

This year at BAM I was asked to be a hair model for Going Natural hair care products. The founder of Going Natural told her hair story on Permed to Natural. Check out her feature Here.  I had two strand twists put in using Going Natural’s No More Knots leave-in conditioner and Silky Shea Hair Butter.

Check out the pictures from BAM and my hair modeling experience below.

The hair piece was made by the stylist. She is in Brooklyn, NY and can be reached at info@bohemiansoul.com and www.bosohair.com.

Before the two strand twist I wore a curly afro.

Luv her curls.

Check out this silver fox. She doesn’t understand why her natural mane recieves so much attention. 

Good Housekeeping TV

Friday, April 15th, 2011

During my transitioning days, in the Summer of 2010, I was selected by Kmart and Good Housekeeping magazine to appear in a fashion segment for Good Housekeeping TV. I modeled actress Jaclyn Smith’s clothes that are available at Kmart.

Check out some of the photos from the taping that day. I had loads of fun.

Fashion Makeover with Jaclyn Smith

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

I was selected by Good Housekeeping TV and Kmart to have Jaclyn Smith spruce up my wardrobe by using her clothing line at Kmart.

I cannot believe Jaclyn Smith is going to give me a fashion makeover! I’ve always loved her. From her Charlie’s Angels days (oops – I’m dating myself) to her fabulous movies for television, she has remained a consistent class act.

 This event is to celebrate Jaclyn’s 25th anniversary partnering with Kmart.

I am always filling out forms on various websites and in magazines to do something I’ve always wanted to do or have never experienced. About a year or more ago, I applied to receive a beauty makeover but didn’t hear from the producers until now. When I received the email  for a fashion makeover I responded with a big “Yes” right away without thinking twice.

The show will teach me how to highlight a variety of my own outfits by adding just a few accessories instead of running to the store to purchase a completely new ensemble. I need this kind of coaching because that is exactly what I do. I need to learn how to work with what I got.

I’ll keep you all posted on the outcome.
