I meant to post on Friday before I left…but the sand in the hourglass ran out before I had a chance.


I spent the weekend in Hawaii, touring the island of Oahu for an upcoming feature for BlackAtlas.com. That’s me at the Diamond Head volcanic crater!

I am in LOVE with Hawaii right now. Words can’t describe how beautiful the landscape and culture of Hawaii are. And words also can’t describe how exhausted I am after that long flight! I’ll be back later on with Golden Globes beauty tips and more — and my photos and video from Honolulu will be posted on BlackAtlas soon!

You look beautiful in your green. I can't wait to read your article. Please let us know when it's live. It's timely, because I'm saving up to go to on vacation and Hawaii is on the short list (so is Bermuda-any advice)
