Step into your inner goddess

I love to see celebrities interact on a positive level with their fans. Tomiko Fraser-Hines considers herself to be an “inspirationist”!

The earring guy 1

I am roughly 6 months into this and it has been INCREDIBLE! I’ve been trying to establish myself as an artist, but over the past few years I had been hemmed in as more of a manufacturer…producing plaques and other bulk items for different organizations. It wasn’t until late last year when I […]

The Natural Me

I created “The Natural Me” as a way to encourage African Men/Women to embrace our Natural Beauty, be it hair, complexion, features, etc…   We encourage the usage of natural products for our skin/hair because much of what is offered on today’s market isn’t made for our skin/hair, is possibly […]

Napturally Curly talks: Going Natural on a Budget 1
