Throughout high school, I was made fun of a lot. I was a lot smaller than the other kids, and I have a big gap in my teeth. I had pretty bad acne. So I struggled with that.
It truly amazes me all the things you can add and mix in to truly transform a plain old bowl of oatmeal.
Steph's such a good dad for girls. He's super attentive, and he's, like, not too manly to get down on the floor and play with them and have a tea party.
My grandmother had mango trees in her backyard when I was a child. So it's always been an ingredient that I'm familiar with. It can be used in so many ways. My kids absolutely love it for a snack or in a savory dish.
The only introduction to sports that I had before meeting my husband was Buffalo Bills football and Doug Flutely Flakes. My dad grew up in Buffalo and has been a Bills fan all his life.
Shrimp and grits is a dish that I enjoy from North Carolina. It's one of those dishes that is so rich in flavor and texture.
Instead of cartoons, I was the kid who was watching Food Network, falling asleep to Emeril and Rachael Ray.
I love a good bowl of cereal. The unhealthy kind. Lucky Charms. Sometime I'll do Special K Chocolatey Delight, and I feel like I'm being healthy, but there's chocolate in there.
My mom has passed down that you can be chic and look beautiful, and you don't have to break the bank. I grew up like that. She also taught me I don't have to stress all the time. She's always been a go-with-the-flow type of woman; that's how she raised us, and I find that's how I'm raising my little girls now.
People don't realize it hurts my feelings when someone looks at my hair or my eyes, and says, 'But you're not actually black. You're black, but you're not black black, because your eyes are green.' I'm like, 'What? No, no, I'm definitely black.' Even some of my closest friends have said that. It's been a bit touchy for me.
I love to make scrubs at home. My favorite is a mixture of brown sugar and coconut oil. So simple yet so effective!
In the CoverGirl Melting Pout Matte Lipstick ads, I am wearing this gorgeous purple color called Seismic. It's such a different shade, but it works well with my face. I've got hazel eyes, and so purple kind of compliments it. It's a nice shade to put on when I'm feeling a little sassy.
My mom is Jamaican and Chinese, and my dad is Polish and African-American, so I had a pretty diverse culinary background to work with.
I love dessert.
I believe that in today's media landscape, we can create and distribute content on multiple platforms while remaining fresh and relevant.
When you can't do what you love all of a sudden because of an uncontrollable situation, it sucks.
I wear a lot of hair extensions because I'm doing a lot of shoots and things like that. But for me, a good edge control is really important, and then a headscarf at night.
My family values are really, really important.
I love it when someone tries a recipe of mine and posts a picture of the finished product. Completely rewarding. It makes my day every time.
It's true what they say, and I am now a firm believer in the fact that every pregnancy is different for every woman!
