I am the assistant editor for B*Real and I enjoy sharing my personal experiences on the latest makeup tricks, crazy hair experiments, health kicks, sticky relationship situations and just plain old life. Why? Because how else can you define what you like if you never try anything new. In #MyFirstTime, I chronicle my journey to finding what works for me (or doesn’t) hoping maybe it can work for you, too (or not). To quote Aaliyah, a true artist of my time, “If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again.” Trying something for the first time is new territory, but can sometimes be worth your while.
Other fun facts about me: I stand at an impressive 4-feet-10 inches, I change my hair color like some change lip shades, I look up to Carrie Bradshaw and I’m a hardcore #Arianator (aka an Ariana Grande stan).
I’m always looking for the next it thing to try, so if you have any suggestions or want to share your own “tried and true” tips, comment below or reach me on social media.
'Til Next Time,
