Diva's Life: My First Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring the Rockettes Experience

So I spent the Christmas holiday in New York with my Dad. While on my trip, we went to see the Rockettes perform in their annual show, Radio City Christmas Spectacular. I have a fond appreciation of stage performance and an admiration for those who grind behind the scene to put on a great show. These women train for months for days of performances often back to back. We attended the 7:30 show, and you could not tell it was their fourth show of the day! They even had a 10 p.m. show after ours. Wow! I captured many photos and videos. It was truly spectacular! See what I did there? Check out photos and video clips below.

The auditorium  was beautiful!

This had to be my favorite scene! I loved the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers!

The Living Nativity Scene was something to see. The costumes and  animals! Awesome!

Extras: A little BTS vid I found on the net since I cannot get mine to upload. Check them out on my Instagram .

The show runs until January 3, 2016!

Diva Cover Stories: 3 Reasons Why In Style Magazine Got Thier Viola Davis Cover Right

Covers like these are important for several  reasons. One: Black actresses are being featured on popular magazines and being recognized for their hard work. Two: Natural hair on a major magazine is a big deal. Three: Someone in the makeup department finally  got it right. Please, please, please, if you're a makeup artist and you are not well versed in the plethora of shades and tones that is black skin, seek assistance. Do your research, and add products to your kit for your new client. Don't be like an editor who shall remain unnamed who essentially blamed the  poor lighting and makeup job on an actress featured on her magazine on her being black. In Style, you did good.

Girl Talk: I Received My First Vajacial and Here's Why You Should Get One Too

At the beginning of November, I was connected to the lovely Kimberly Grimes, owner of Vava Voom, an esthetics  studio specializing in intimate care. She was having a press week for members of the local media to experience her services to promote her business. A friend tagged me in her Instagram post, and since I had never been to any place like this I sent my info over.  After browsing the site, I opted for the vajacial because it "targets irritating ingrowns, below-the-belt blackheads and hyperpigmentation" and scheduled my appointment. Services include full facial and body waxing, body art such as intimate hair tinting, flesh care such as Vajacials, and V-Tox steams or hip baths.


On the day of my appointment, I arrived to the studio which is in a shared space, so I waited upstairs while Kimberly finished with the client that was before me. While I waited, I had plenty of time to think of my nervousness. I never had been waxed before because I do my feminine maintenance at home. I even "Naired" beforehand because I wasn't going to have anyone talking about me in their head. No, honey!  Now I volunteered myself to spread my legs wide open for a complete stranger. What was I getting myself into?! 

When it my turn, I was given the privacy to partially disrobe and get comfortable on the table. Vava Voom is an intimate one room studio adorned with work from local artists on the wall. Then soft music playing the background helped calm me down. Kimberly made me feel really at ease, especially since I had never received such a service before. It was like chatting with one of my girlfriends while I was given hot towel and exfoliating treatments.
