Post Pregnancy Hair Struggle

By 4 C haircare, acting, toya's life No Comments

Ya’ll it’s been a JOURNEY loving my hair. I’ve been relaxed, natural, texturized, and back to natural. Today I wouldn’t trade my texture of hair for anyone else’s. I’m proud of it and I love it.

Detangling: Wetting, Combing, applying product, and twisting. They are normal everyday ordinary things that most people do on a daily basis.

The key for me was a shift in emotion and mindset.

What I Learned Making My Bed Daily

By acting, toya's life No Comments

For most of my life I’ve been on and off about making my bed. But for the past  three months, I’ve made it a priority to make the bed every single morning without excuse.

First I began because I wanted my space to look better, but I quickly realized it made me feel like I have my crap together. And I LOVE that feeling. The funny thing is, I actually got more organized and felt a bigger push to be more productive.

Hollywood Acting. How’s It Going For Me?

By acting, toya's life No Comments

In my last post featuring my new YouTube channel trailer, I talked about doing ordinary things on a consistent basis that has helped guide me into the woman I’m becoming. I’m an actress and a storyteller. So I took my own advice and stepped away from YouTube to do some ordinary things like sleep, spend time with my family, and get back into acting class. My time away led to some pretty wonderful things. I consider myself blessed to be able to share these moments with you.

My New YouTube Channel Trailer

By acting, toya's life No Comments

I remember standing on a train platform in Chicago on the last day of having a nine to five in that city. I had a big Afro matched with big ambition.  I moved into a tiny Los Angeles apartment that felt like a shoebox with a bathroom attached. I literally slept in the same room as my stove. 

I made Youtube videos about my hair and worked part time as a makeup artist.  But I didn’t care,  because I was going to be on TV. I had just shot my first television episodes as a guest star on a hit Soap Opera and I had a feeling more good things would come. And they did.

My Favorite (very) Affordable Black Friday Deals…

By fashion, holiday, lifestyle No Comments

LET THE SALES COMMENCE

I’ve taken some time to put together a shopping list of items from my favorite affordable retailers. Boohoo is currently having a 60% off everything sale. Gap has 50% off everything, plus an extra 10% off coupon on the homepage of their site that is applied immediately with the click of a button. Missguided, a UK based site, has 50% off storewide. I love shopping there for unique instagramable pieces. Forever 21 is offering 30% off and free shipping. I shop there for inexpensive trendy pieces. Sometimes I’ll test if I like a style before investing in the style in a better quality. Some of the larger ticketed items are at Nordstrom and they are offering up to 60% off. Lastly, Express has a 50% off sale with free shipping.

I separated some of the clothing items that stood out to me by store.

Everything on this list, I would buy. In fact, many of the items are similar to things I have in my closet today.

Every single item is on sale and most of them are under $60. It’s the perfect time to buy them with all of the Black Friday deals happening. If you’re wanting to shop for Cyber Monday, but you see an item you’d like to buy now, download the shoptagr app. I just downloaded it a few weeks ago and I love that I’ve gotten notifications as soon as something I wanted went on sale this week.

Shoptagr has no idea that I exist, but I want to pass on my money saving tips so you can shop smart.  I also use a site and app called Ebates, for most of my online shopping.  If you visit a website via Ebates, and buy something, you will get a percentage back in a paypal account of your choosing.
