I wanted to share this experience with you because honestly, I had an amazing time. I genuinely loved the atmosphere that was created for me to shine in my photos. I channeled every season of Top Model I could remember and it turned out amazing.

I did have a breakout the week of the shoot, but just speaking honestly... the pictures still turned out amazing. You know why? Because they displayed the real me. The acne-prone, fun-loving, show-stopping... ME!

I have another photo shoot scheduled this month and I already started working on my skin so at least it can be a little healthier this time. I didn't realize that the pictures were the missing link to me elevating my brand. From the website to my Instagram it really showed that I was elevating my brand. I am happy and thankful for Lisa who pushed me into doing this. So many times, I told myself that I could just do it myself. I tried and never got the results that I wanted.

So what did I learn from this experience? It's ok to know how but allow someone else to do it for you. Going to Marcus was probably the best thing that could have happened for me in this season. I can't thank him and his team enough for making the experience so amazing. I really felt like a whole star. The E Glam Squad (Lashes: Tay, MUA: Massey Styles, and Wig: @Mac_Wigs ) definitely got your girl together! I'm still smiling thinking about what I had been missing out on.

Here is the behind the scenes look to all of my pictures you have seen me flood your timeline with. I think this helps you understand why I was so geeked about this experience. PS if your reading this you got first dibs on seeing the video because you're apart of the Bestie Squad.

Let me know what you think... Are you ready for the Elevation of E?

More than likely you are here from my video on Youtube. Due to some regulations it isn’t good for me to post the links to things like this on Youtube. I previously requested that people send me DMs on IG but that is becoming overwhelming trying to keep up with message requests. So here is a quick way for you to get them.

If by chance this is your first time seeing this info about the AirPod dupes, please take a minute to watch the video. The video goes into great detail and comparison between the real and the dupes. https://youtu.be/-HcjjSVhGcg. The airpods are still holding up in case you were wondering.

Ordering FYI (Please read)

As always most of my aliexpress links will be “hidden” links. This means that the link will show an item totally unrelated to the product. Depending on the item, you will be able to use the style to pick which item that matches your desired product.

Please never leave any bad feedback without trying to contact the seller first. Do not post pictures in your review. Here is the link: https://bit.ly/2ZJ4mQX

here is the picture that shows up (again it’s a hidden link) as of 7/06/2020. I’ll try to keep it updated when possible in case it changes.
