I recently went to Miami to do a shoot for a calendar and brought one of my friends along. Even though the trip was work related we had a great time. Here are some photos from the trip and I what i look like unphotoshoped. Work trips are the best!

On wednesday July 27 th I woke up late and in a frenzy, I was supposed to be getting my make up done at 7:30am and and it was 8am. I frantically checked my phone and saw numerous texts and missed calls from my make up artist Marcus Miller and I thought he left. I quickly got my makeup done and got on the road the destination was New York one of my favorite cities. I was exhausted from staying up the night before preping for my little trip so I had to get an energy drink asap. I was so wired i couldn't calm myself down. We arrived in the city quickly but as soon as we got there it was mounds of traffic covering the downtown streets. I didn't want to be late for the shoot and between the pressure of being on time, traffic, and an energy drink I felt like I was loosing my mind lol. Finally hours later we arrived at the Staten Island mansion. I quickly got dressed and calmed myself down and got ready to take my place in the video for Eric Sermon and Rick Ross new song "Aint Me". I had a really fun time and met some amazing people. Eric Sermon was really nice and down to earth it was a pleasure to work with a legend in the rap game. I also want to thank Devon Of Descai Clothing for making such an epic swimsuit in only one day!! Your the best Devin!

As I began glamour modeling I experienced mixed reactions from different people, but I never cared what anyone thought I just stayed true to myself because I know my plan. A lot of people have misconceptions or just plain ignorance on the subject mater. I've had it compared to pornography, stripping, and many other things. The same people who bash it are the same people who take pictures in the mirror on cell phones in bikini's or underwear and make it their profile picture on a social network, take stripper exercise classes, boudoir photo shoots, and secretly yearn to be in a music video along side their favorite rapper. The difference between me and them is that I'm secure with myself and can actually do it and profit from it. I love myself and my body so I have no problem displaying it. We all have flaws and things we can improve upon but when you know you have inner and outer beauty you should be able to display it however you choose. Glamour modeling celebrates women's curves no one is pencil thin but shapely and proportioned like a lot of real women are. There aren't a lot of avenues in the high fashion world for curvy women and glamour modeling has opened doors and allowed women all over to make money gracing the covers of magazines or making your favorite artist look even better. A lot of women mainly down it but theres nothing I love more than traveling staying in beautiful hotels, expenses paid for meeting all types of people in the industry, getting pampered with some one to style me and do my hair and make up. In any position professionalism is the key! At the end of the day its a job like any other with its ups and downs that is totally separate from my family and personal life.

I learned a long time ago that I never wanted to work for anyone but myself and I like to do things on my own terms. I knew the only way to be passionate enough about your work would be to do the things you love and profit from them. My whole life I've had a love for making people beautiful from head to toe. I've worked with cosmetology, fashion and built skills that I can live off of for the rest of my life but those aren't the only things I want to do with my life. I also love art and music so glamour modeling was always something I wanted to explore. Everyone should go after anything they want and never let anyone deter them. No matter how many models there are there is only one me ! I go after everything I want and I will keep pushing until all my goals are achieved!!!!
