Yesterday, I got an email from one of the producers at HuffPost Live with some exciting news. I was asked to be a guest on today’s 5PM segment. The topic??!! Wait for it… The topic was sparked by my blog post from last week An Open Letter To Women Who Constantly Complain But Never Change. The post was originally written for Essence.com but ultimately got picked up by Huffington Post. YASSSSS!!! (insert school girl cheerleader squeal now).
So now comes the good part… since I will be joining the host Ahmed Shihab-Eldin live on air via Google Hangout, I want all my Nudie Patooties to watch, tweet and comment on the show. Get the details below.

Yayyy, being on the show was awesome. I’m not sure if you can tell by the footage, but I was a bundle of nerves (note the flared nostrils) *giggles*. And YESSSS, is indeed that handsome on air *swoons*. The producers and the rest of the HP team were awesome and made the entire process easy breezy.
Many of you asked about my on-camera “LOOK”. Alright, I did my own hair and makeup that day. But my hair stylist Patrice Hector keeps me in this low maintenance doo so I can whip it together in a flash! This was the first test drive on my new color job, it’s like McDonald’s “I’m lovin’ it!”. HA! And recently, I took a professional makeup class from celebrity makeup artist Saisha Beecham. Who knew “contouring” could make a girl look so GLAM! I’ve finally nailed the “smokey eye” technique *smiles*. Lastly, my earrings are a custom design and a gift from celebrity jewelry designer Don Dee.
In case you missed the live segment, check out the highlight clips below. If you can’t see it, here is the LINK. You can also check out the full segment HERE.
This was such an awesome experience!! I’m looking forward to more of this kind of thing!! Stay tuned!
