GFS Hairstory: The Interview That Wasn't Supposed to Happen

H&M Dress
Random Belt
Sam Edelman Wedges
Aldo Necklace

I know a lot of bloggers venture into VLOGGING but I vowed that would not be my ministry.
But when you have a pushy friend who forces you to talk...well... never say never. I also have the distinct honor of introducing her daughter to her first Oreo cookie when she was one year old...so I suppose I felt obligated! LOL

Here is probably the first and last video I will ever do!

Quick notes:

1. I did NOT want to do a video...ever!
2. I'm not wearing any make up...(nor do I wear any but still)
3. I have no idea why I was flipping my head like I have cascading locks down my back!
4. I had zero time to prepare!
5. My outfit  pics were taken this morning and this video was done at 7pm...as the day goes on...my hair gets bigger:)
6. I have "bed head" hair in the video because I drive with my head leaned back against the headrest after work. Thanks Kenge for allowing me NO time to fix that! GRRRR!

Enough stalling I suppose...here goes!

Kenge, next time I want a hair and make up crew booked and Evian water in a plastic cup with a silver straw to sip!

It was amazing hearing the voice behind the pictures, lol! The camera angle was a little distracting, but I loved it!

NIce interview !!
Could you please write your three products as it was hard to understand the name of the last one.

RocquelleIsLovely said...

I like the occassional interview because it allows readers to hear the voice behind the pictures and words (though I already know what your voice sounds like lol)!

It was a good video; you know I LLOOVVVEEE your hair! Everytime you said beauty supply in the hood, I coulldn't help but laugh.

I'm think of doing a hair video to answer some questions I've been asked, but I have no idea where I will begin.

Your voice is *EXACTLY* how I imagined it would be!! Yay!!! You should definitely do more videos (especially haul videos), but if you don't... it's cool getting to see this! :)

Katie Mac said...

Reiko, I awarded you The Adorable Blog award. Check out my blog for details.

Juanette said...

I likes your dress mamacita, I can't watch the video because they won't let us have access to YouTube, I guess they figured out that I would be watching Jay-Z videos and old episodes of Good Times and Girlfriends while I'm supposed to be working.

The Taliah Waajid product is the Protective Mist Bodifier, I could have used some today!

antonia said...

Oh my!!! I LOVE seeing and hearing you on video! You are SO cute I can't stand it. I love your natural hair. You are gorgeous, fabulous and fun. xoMish

Marion Renee said...

Hey lady! Nice to hear your voice. It was a pretty good interview and I really liked the advice about blogging. I kinda lost the drive to do it and it's hard to just jump back in but I will give it a try.
BTW: I sat down on my handbag biz for a minute to revamp but I am still designing and planning. I hope to be blasting about a new and dif style for marionrenee.com soon... I will keep you posted!

(love the hair!!!)

:-)I've always thought you should have a video blog...perhaps helping people pull looks together. Plus you had advice for me when I first went natural.


Savonne said...

Kerissa said...

I can't help but echo everyone and say how much I love the printed dress. I really need to try mixing prints. Maybe I'll send you a few things and you can pair them up for me via email?
