Brief excerpt from cover story written by: Shantell E. Jaimson

For three seasons, the pair has graced our television screens on the hit ABC comedy black-ish. This quirky yet hilarious couple has navigated several real-life instances related to Blacks in America, from teenage sex to police brutality.

In 30 minutes, the entire cast, crew and its producers manage to reel us in with humor but also make us think. Each minute counts, and due to Ross and Anderson’s magnetic chemistry, they effortlessly hold the attention of millions each week.

That’s why choosing them for our September issue cover story made sense. They just … fit, much like the chemistry they possess, naturally.

WEBSITE COMING SOON!!!

Happy Sunday Lovies,

Spending the day off working on new content for the week. Here I am again celebrating yet another milestone for the Instagram page. The dawn of another month is vastly approaching. Proud to announce the preparation for my website will be in effect next month. I can’t believe it almost here. So many things are required but in the long run all the blood, sweat & tears are going to be so worth it. When building a brand you must evolve to take things to the next level. Therefore after August this site will shut down & resume on my upcoming website. Generally speaking, the goal my branding team has is to feature guest blogger on the site. In essence, the core content but will remain the same there will be just a few additions for instance a “Shop” section. During the early stages of my journey, I was thinking of producing my own T-Shirt apparel line. After some thought, my brand developer suggested to do something that would be more lucrative than T-Shirts.

As a result both agreed to feature fashion accessories for the shop section of the website. Sadly there are too many small businesses that sell T-Shirts not to mention trying to compete with these companies by figuring out catchy/trendy slogans for the Tees. Consequently the T-Shirt avenue would be too much to deal with. The “Aquarius” within in doesn’t like to follow or mimic anything from anyone else.  All things considered, there isn’t a female whom doesn’t love fashion accessories: choker, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, anklets & so forth.

In any event, I would like to express how happy I am of what I’ve accomplished thus far. The idea of being any form of a blogger didn’t spark my interest until my late 30’s. As a new natural, I didn’t like the assumptions that were made regarding women whom decided to make healthier hair choices (Going Natural). Furthermore, the whole idea of “Natural Haired” women couldn’t be just as stylish as other women was ridiculous. Most importantly, I knew something had to be done my mind started racing with numerous ideas. As a result I created an outlet for myself. My very first endeavor was  “Naturally A Rockstarr” which launched via Blogspot in 2012/2013. The first feature was Solange. Coupled with more features of some of my favorite female artist whom are natural such as: Lalah Hathaway, Conya Doss, Choklate, Angie Stone, Goapele, Jill Scott, Joi, Leela James, Les Nubians, Hil St. Soul, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae` India.Arie & more. The more I looked at these women I began to realize just how fashionable they were with their Natural Hair. Sparks of ideas exploded in my mind with even more ideas of what I wanted to do. I can appreciate my humble beginnings even though I was all over the place. (Laughs)

In closing, you’re never too old to set your horizons on a dream that can still become a reality. God blesses everyone with dreams, talents and/or gifts. Surround yourself around people whom would love to see you advance in your career or elevating to an entrepreneur. Allow help from others who possess the same like mindedness as yourself. It can only take your higher. Pray consistently keep growing & striving for excellence.

New Product Spotlight: Torrei Hart Introduces New Natural Haircare Line”Heavenly Hart By Nzuri”

 

Featured Photo: Torrei Hart alongside her daughter & inspiration behind hair care line Heaven Hart!

Brief excerpt from Essence Magazine story written by: Abiola Abrams

The natural beauty is also an actress, producer, mom and now, a beauty entrepreneur. She’s partnered with Nzuri to create the brand new natural hair care line, Heavenly Hart by Nzuri, and it’s inspired by her daughter Heaven.

Torrei worked closely with Nzuri CEO and co-founder, hair loss specialist and chief trichologist Leola Anifowoshe to create products for both hair loss and hair growth.

My new haircare line Heavenly Hart was inspired by and named after my daughter. Heaven is her first name, her middle name is Leigh and then, of course, Hart. So, it actually came from her. With me being a mom and having a daughter, who’s not only a Black daughter but she’s a chocolate girl, too. I want her to feel empowered and have that sense of, “This is who God made me. I am beautiful no matter what.”

New Product Spotlight: Carmella Marie

 

Today is all about spotlighting some amazing women in the natural hair company. My last blog post feature was Ms. Toya Boxley-Bradley CEO/Creator of Sweet T’s Beauty. In this post I would like everyone to get to know Carmella Williams aka Carmella Marie. Carmella Williams hails from Youngstown, OH. A few years back I while as a freshly new natural I attended 1 of many natural hair meetups hosted by none other than “It’s A Natural Thang”. Carmella was one of the many vendors there I walked to her table & inquired about her products. She was so warm & welcoming we hit it off instantly. During that time her biggest seller was called “Hair Crack”. Which sadly I never had the opportunity to use because it had so many rave reviews. Nevertheless we stayed in contact via social media as well as other later meetup events here in the City of Pittsburgh.

In essence, in my previous post we just celebrated another success summer natural hair meetup as of July 8th 2017. Carmella had missed a few past events but once I knew she would be at this particular event I couldn’t wait to see her. In addition, I was able to purchase some of her “Deep Conditioner” which my hair is in desperate need of. All things considered during the summer months heat and humidity is not a naturals best friend. To say nothing of this week as I prep for a much-needed “Wash Day” I would more than likely drench my hair with Carmella Marie’s ” Deep Conditioner” In fact, this product smells so good it’s mixed with Honey Hibiscus formulated for dry & frizzy hair. This product does not contain any Parabens, Mineral Oil, Silicone or Petroleum.

Product Spotlight: Sweet T’s Beauty (Dead Sea Face Mask)

Today I wanted to share yet another post about 1 of my many favorite black owned brands by the name of Sweet T’s Beauty. One week ago all naturals in the City of Pittsburgh attended the hottest summer natural hair meetup hosted by “It’s A Natural Thang”. The event was a huge smash as if you didn’t already know. Every season I get to see all my female entrepreneurs advertising their new expansions of their brand. Sweet T’s Beauty introduced a new clay face mask called “Dead Sea Face Mask”. For someone like myself whom have battled Acne most of my life , I’m always eager to try new organic products for my skin. Ceo/Creator Toya Boxley-Bradley insisted that I try her new product. Well needless to say she didn’t have to twist my arm I was already on broad. Dealing with a combination skin type (normal/oily/dry/sensitive) I have to be careful of the products I add to my skin that doesn’t care any form of irritation. The problem areas are my cheeks which in the featured pics below you can see the dark marks/hyper pigmentation in my skin. Also from my long battle with Acne my pores are enlarged.

Meanwhile, another issue my skin becomes immune to products over time. As a result my skin will continue to break out therefore I have to switch products quite often. Not to mention I’ve been using “Neutrogena” for a very long time as I previously stated my skin is basically over it. (Laughs). The new product line I’ve recently purchased is “Simple” which is great for the sensitivity of my skin. In addition I haven’t used any form of clay masks in years. Generally speaking my skin care regiment must be strategic & disciplined. With some research I will list below details of how my daily regiment will be:

AM TREATMENT:

  • Cleansing Gel
  • Toner
  • Lightweight Moisturizer
  • Zinc Oxide Sunscreen

PM TREATMENT:

  • Cleansing Gel
  • Toner
  • AHA/BHA Serum
  • Retinol Serum
  • Lightweight Moisturizer

WEEKLY:

  • Clay Mask (Sweet T’s Beauty “Dead Sea Face Mask)
  • Face Oil

As shown above the full details of what my daily skin care lifestyle would be is really nothing new. I know some of you whom may read this will think this is a lot to handle. Taking good care of your skin is the most important thing you should practice everyday. Just like it’s important to exercise as well as eat right, caring for your skin is much required. Given these points, applying a clay mask weekly is going to give me the results I’m looking for. I’ve already sampled the clay mask by “Sweet T’s Beauty” & I really like it. The tingling sensation on my face let me further know the product was working it’s magic. In the long run, I would love to do a YouTube tutorial on how the product works. 

Demetria J. & Toya Boxley-Bradley(CEO/Creator of Sweet T’s Beauty)

Lastly not only has Toya created a clay face mask there is another extension of her brand that includes the fellas. Yes fellas there is a new men’s line called “ Kings Selection Grooming Pudding”. This line includes: “Grooming Pudding, Beard Mist” & soon to come “Shaving Cream & Body Lotion”.

Idris Elba Shares His Passion Behind The Camera For August Cover Of Essence Magazine 2017

Brief excerpt from cover interview written by :

Idris Elba has found his purpose behind the camera. Obviously, he’s fantastic in front of it, but his directorial debut in Yardie will show where his true passion lies. As our August 2017 cover star, the actor talks about his upcoming films, jammed packed schedule and love life.

Set to star in six projects this year —including Thor: Ragnarok and the fifth season of Luther— the 44-year-old was so busy, his photo shoot had to be completed in Thailand where he was training for a Muay Thai match.

Yardie is quite a semi-famous bit of English literature about a small-time pastor who comes from Jamaica and ends up embroiled in [avenging his brother’s death],” he shares about his directorial debut film. “It’s set in the late seventies, early eighties, a hotbed of Jamaican culture in London, but then crack cocaine arrives.”

Celebrating The Life of Michael Jackson 8 Years Later 6/25/2009

June 25th marks the 8th Anniversary the world lost one of the biggest influences & entertainer that has ever graced the stage. Michael Jackson meant so much to so many people around the world. He has blessed us with so much timeless hits from Thriller, Bad, Man In The Mirror, Billie Jean, Remember The Time, Dirty Diana, Give Into Me, Black Or White and much more. I remember getting the call from a former boss saying he passed away. My first response was like “Michael Jackson who???”. As a young girl growing up in the 80’s Michael was my first love in music. In the same fashion I had so many Michael Jackson items for instance: T-Shirts, Doll, View Master, Books, Albums, Posters everything. I remember watching Motown 25 with my mom when he first introduced the “Moonwalk”. Both myself & my mom was super excited to witness history in the making. Consequently I wasn’t too thrilled about that “Thriller” video, needless to say scared me to death. I took down all my posters after that. (laughs)

Michael commanded the status at an early age & captivated his audience up until his untimely death. Micheal will always be special to me my favorite Album will always be “Thriller” because that’s wear it all started for me. Moreover he was just a beautiful man, every one of us has something about ourselves that we are insecure of. No matter how many surgeries were performed I still thought he was amazing. As I’m writing this blog post currently listening to “Lady In My Life”. Words can’t describe how this song still moves me like I just heard for the first time as a little girl. It’s very unfortunate of all the anguish he endured during his career. The man gave so much of himself as well as his fortune to help children just people who were in need.

Michael Joseph Jackson will always be remembered as one of the greatest entertainers in the world. There will never be another one like him. Rest well MJJ!!

Celebrating 5000 Followers!!!

The most exciting thing has manifested itself today. Before I get into the celebration of a yet another milestone and/or goal attained. I’ve been setting small challenges for the Instagram page. Thinking back to when the journey began, there were so many ideas going in my head so much so I had no real direction. The last memory of followers I had in the fall of 2016 was around 560 something. As a result I began to focus wholeheartedly on the vision for my brand. Later linked up with an awesome brand developer & the rest is history. Not mention my brand developer made me set 30/60/90 day goals that I wanted to reach. In the same fashion most of the goals I put in place for each set dates were accomplished early on. Generally speaking one of my few 90 days goals was to reach 5000 followers. June 19th, 2017 5000 followers became a reality.

Every thing I’ve set my mind and focus to has blessed me abundantly. Needless to say when you mind your own business and/or stay in the lane God has set out just for you, the impossible becomes possible. Consequently I’m more inspired/motivated more than ever before. I feel like I’m just getting started. Content is everything for my brand in order to be set apart from other bloggers whom may be in the same niche` of related topics. Moreover the next step is to get my website developed by August. As well as advertising more of myself in my fashion related posts via the social media sites.

Pending challenge currently is to learn the gist of YouTube. I haven’t posted a video in a good month or so which I find to be my greatest hurdle. Some of the content posted that’s has been posted thus far is ok but not what I feel like it could be. YouTube can be very intimidating I still only have like “35” subscribers” (laughing) not going to allow it to beat me. There is too much determination running through my veins to be defeated. So far this year has been moving along in all the right places. I haven’t been truly happy in some time now but I feel a restoration is happening. Reaping my harvest at this very moment. 

In addition, a little recognition wouldn’t hurt my brand either. In the long run I would like “Rockstarr Naturally” to be the next information highway for brands that are up & coming. Whether it’s fashion related, naturally made organic skincare and/or hair care. Equally important I would like “Rockstarr Naturally” to be a catalyst to introduce new bloggers to be featured as guest blogger set for once the website is launch. In the voice of Plies “Can you hear me now bihhh…..” stay tuned!!!!

Cast of “Girls Trip” Looking Amazing On The Cover July Issue of Essence!!!

Brief excerpt from cover story written by Danielle Kwateng-Clark:

The Will Packer-produced comedy stars Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish as the group travels to New Orleans for ESSENCE Festival. And needless to say, with a cast like this, the girls have the time of their lives. From weed-laced edibles and nightclubs to swinging across Bourbon Street and making out with Kofi Siriboe, the ladies have so much fun that the audience will feel like they too are in the Big Easy.

“Because of our history in this country and how we’ve been labeled, I think we, as Black women, tend to be a little hard on ourselves,” Pinkett-Smith told ESSENCE about letting go and having fun in the July 2017 issue.

Afternoon Lovies,

Spring & Summer is that time of the year for naturals to adorn their hair with various “Protective Styles”. Of course the most popular go to styles are Braids & Twists. In addition, Faux Locs, Goddess Locs, Ghana Braids as well as Crochet Braids has made their presence known. All things considered you make maintain your hair/scalp while wearing these different forms of “Protective Styles”. Two weeks from now I will have my first “Protective Style” installed for the Spring/Summer months. Therefore I wanted to share some very helpful tips of caring for your hair while rocking your “Protective Style”:

  • Drink Plenty Of Water
  • Don’t Leave Your Protective Style In No Longer Than 4-6 Weeks
  • Avoid Tight Pulling That Comes From Wearing Constant Updo’s
  • Redo Your Edges
  • Wash Braids Once Every 2 Weeks
  • Moisturize Your Hair/Scalp
  • Protect Your Hair At Night W/Satin (Scarves, Bonnets or Pillowcases)

Above are my go-to products I use to keep my hair looking shiny & moisturized. African Royal  Braid Sheen Spray is my holy grail for the first couple days of a fresh “Protective Style”. The Tea Tree Oil inside helps soothe tightness & itching that consequently I experience within the first few days. Not to mention Jamaican Black Castor Oil is great for keeping my hair moisturizes and smelling great. You can find these products in your local beauty supply store as well as Sally Beauty Supply.

Two top natural hair brands Cantu & Taliah Waajid had extended their products by adding new hair care lines just for “Protective Style” maintenance. Cantu developed 3 new products: Apple Cider Vinegar Root Rinse, Root Relief & Dry Cowash packed with Tea Tree Oil & Peppermint Oil.

Taliah Waajid created “Protective Styles” infused with Bamboo, Basil, & Biotin to strengthen, condition & repair promoting healthy hair growth. Here is the list of the 7 products within this new line:

  • Hairline Help 2-in-1 Plus Bamboo & Biotin Edge Growth
  • Gro Hair Gro Bamboo Coconut Milk Oil
  • Healthy Hair Under There Bamboo Avocado & Peppermint Conditioning Restoring Serum
  • Intensive Moisture Bamboo & Coconut Milk Strengthening Leave-In Conditioner
  • Refresh So Clean Bamboo Avocado & Peppermint Dry Gel Shampoo
  • Thick & Full Bamboo Coconut Milk Moisturizing Mint Shampoo
  • Ditch The Itch Bamboo Basil Peppermint Anti-Itch Serum

As shown above are some of my helpful tips as well as product suggestions that will be beneficial for maintaining your hair while rocking “Protective Styles” during the Spring/Summer months to come.

Product Spotlight: ~Sweet T’s Beauty~ Must Have “Hair Elixir”

If you haven’t noticed by now I’m a huge fan & supporter of “Sweet T’s Beauty”. Ceo/Creator Toya Boxley-Bradley specializes in organic home-grown hair care products with a dash of “Black Girl Magic”! Today’s feature is one of the many products from “Sweet T’s Beauty” which is the Hair Elixir. This product is packed with a mixture of essential oils to keep your hair moisturized & soft.

Featured Photo: Ceo/Creator “Sweet T’s Beauty” Toya Boxley-Bradley

Today was my first wash day for the month of May & the day would not be complete without using at least 1 of the products from my go-to hair care brand which is “Sweet T’s Beauty”. Toya Boxley-Bradley puts in so much of herself in her produt. In the same fashion with this dedication is the main reason why her products sell out via many events across the City of Pittsburgh. Often imitated but never duplicated.

In every customized (Beauty Box) you will find the key elements that produce such rewarding results for everyday styling. Not to mention the best seller “Blueberry Hair Pudding” will give your hair definition for awesome braid and/or twist outs styles. Another phenomenal product is the “Hair Reconstructor” that is prefect for protein treatments as well as deep conditioning. 

The most important thing about the many product reviews that I’ve done thus far, I stand wholeheartedly by “Sweet T”s Beauty”. Why you ask, because I support all my female entrepreneurs whom are making their mark by creating authentic products for consumers to be proud of. Finally this brand have the stamp of approval from “Rockstarr Naturally”!!! Do yourself a favor order your own Beauty Box. Invest in your the magic that is “Sweet T”s Beauty.
