My hair has always been a struggle, and learning how to take care of it is something that has happened later in my life. Growing up I always had braids. When I started modeling around 15 I straightened my hair, and that was the beginning of the damage. I recently, in the last 2 years, have tried to be carful with my hair, twisting it, keeping it moisturized and protected, and have loved seeing it get healthy again! Braids are such a stylish awesome way to protect you're hair! I go to an African braiding salon on 110th in Spanish Harlem, and get these long ones, It's definitely going to be my summer style as I swim, and beach, and continue to want to take care of my hair! Do Try!

|...The 1st of many LatelyIveBeen.Com champagne parties|
Wow; It's been a while since I had time to sit down and write. Firstly, I just celebrated my 25th birthday! 24 was one of the most challenging years of my life thus far, with so many invaluable lessons learned. It was an especially important year for LatelyIveBeen, the brand is growing so quickly, and I feel so blessed to share all of this with you guys as I take it to the next level! LatelyIveBeen for me, represents a lifestyle. A never stop dreaming attitude that becomes reality. I've never been one to follow the rules. Convention truly bores me, I believe in living life for you, and truly loving what you do. As dark as our political times are, there is a beauty and light this day and age sheds on the creative world. A true opportunity to take passions and turn them into capitol, as you share them with the world. At LatelyIveBeen, that's the goal, and that brings me to this post! We had the first LatelyIveBeen.Com champagne tea party in the penthouse of The Smyth Tribeca, a Thompson Hotel. This night marked the first of many Champagne teas that I will be hosting around the city, partnering with some of my favorite boutique hotels. The idea is to bring a group of creatives together, people who may not have had the opportunity to meet, and throw an intimate party where people with similar interests can connect. Our first party was a beautiful success, a night of endless champagne, cheese plates, prosciutto, wine, and the best company, in a setting truly made for a princess. We ended our night as a group at Casablanca dancing to the oldies. I can't imaging a better first event. (Take a peek at the bts images below!)
We are keeping the champagne teas guest list super small moving forward, but I want to get the chance to meet some of you! Send an email to Management@latelyIveBeen.com telling us at a little bit about you're creative passions, for a chance to be invited to the next tea! Look forward to hearing from you!
