Of all my creative abilities and interests, writing is my most favorite way to express myself.
As a child, books sparked and fueled my imagination and curiosity. They taught me about the world through the different authors’ and characters’ vantage points and inspired me to explore the world for myself and write from my vantage point. I’ve been writing since a pencil was first placed into my hand and have filled pages of numerous journals with my innermost thoughts and adventures through life. In my childhood, I wrote a lot of poetry and I have been blogging for 10 years with the consistent intent to share and inspire.
AGrlCanMAC is my women’s lifestyle & culture blog that includes topics about, but is not limited to, [natural] hair; beauty, books, health & fitness, self esteem, wellness and life to help elevate women and reaffirm their beauty, existence and significance.
I was the senior beauty editor of EXUDE Magazine, an online publication that spoke to young, urban professionals of color about topics including fashion, beauty, lifestyle and current events. I curated and wrote beauty pieces on skin care, makeup tips and DIY beauty recipes and creatively directed the makeup for editorial features.
During 2014, I was a contributing blogger for bondage lingerie brand named Bodybinds.
Bodybinds is a lifestyle lingerie brand for women of all ages, shapes, sizes and races who journey into discovering themselves, their bodies, their femininity and their sexuality. The blog portion of the site creates content that speaks to them and I talked to the spiritual elements of reveling in femininity and sexual self expression.
