Artist Of Life




1.) How did the name “Lavendaire” come about?

One day, I was brainstorming some combinations of words that I liked that would embody my vision.   My main objective was to come up with a name that sounded airy, light, and inspiring. I had purple hair and really liked the color lavender because it was a color, but also a flower. The color was perfect for how I wanted my brand to feel, and the fact that it was also a flower added to the dreamy and feminine feel I wanted. Then I added “aire” at the end because I wanted the word “air” in there – and it made it sound a bit French.



2.) Do you consider yourself a millennial?  If so how do you define being a millennial in today’s society?

Yes. I think millennial is just a label of the generation that was born between a certain time frame – I’m a 90’s kid which fits into the “millennial” category. I don’t generally like to define the label though because I believe that limits us.



3.) Did you always dream of becoming a blogger and youtube creator? If not what other dreams or aspirations did you have?

In a way, yes.  I had a music YouTube channel since high school where I sang and played piano. It was a fun hobby, but I didn’t know if I could ever make it into a full time career.  I  just knew deep down inside, that I wanted to have a career where I could be creative.  Where I could have time and location freedom, to invest my time into something meaningful.  I  always looked up to other Youtubers because I envied their lifestyle: They got to make videos, be their own boss, and travel for work.  So with that being said, I eventually  got honest with myself and decided to seriously pursue youtube.



4.) What inspired or motivated you to start your series “Artist Of Life”?

I’m  inspired by the concept of the artist of life – the concept that we each have the power to create and shape our lives in whatever way we want. We can truly create the life of our dreams if we try. At the very least, we can create a life where we are happy and working on something that brings us joy and fulfillment. I really wanted to feature “artists of life” that I knew personally and share their stories with others, to show that “Hey, this is possible. If they can do it, so can you.” I’ve been inspired by so many people in my journey and I want to share that with others.



5.) For anybody out their that may be an entrepreneur like yourself, what word of advice would you give them?  What do you hope they learn from you?

It’s all about stamina: how long can you last in the game without giving up?  The entrepreneurial path is incredibly fulfilling and rewarding and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.   Everyday when I wake up,  I get to do what I love.   I get to create things that make me happy, while also making a  positive impact on other people’s lives which is what I’ve always wanted.   Yet,  the the path isn’t easy and  the rewards don’t come as soon as you wish they would.  Everything takes time and effort, so you have to be super patient, persevering and continually learn and study the industry so that you can give it your best shot. I break this down in a recent podcast episode I shared about The Success Mindset.

The entrepreneurial path isn’t for the weak. You have to be willing to work for years without reward, before you might see  the slightest chance of success. But if you can stay in the game, it will definitely make you stronger.  Because then you’ll feel so capable that even if this venture fails, you can build up another one with all that you have learned over the years.

Curly Hair: My Top 10 Do’s and Dont’s

Curly Hair: My Top 10 Do’s and Dont’s

Curly hair for many or most people has it’s pros and cons.  On one hand curly hair is fun and different, but on the other hand keeping it mositurized can be a battle. As someone who has curly hair, I know all to well about not keeping your hair moisturized. Because as we all know, dry curly hair will not curl up.  Which is why it is essential to keep curly hair moisturized and in tip top shape. Yet despite it all, I would not want to have my hair any other way. The beautiful thing about curly hair is the fact that nobody has the same curl pattern or type. We are unique and beautiful in our own way and curls.


Yet with all the good and bad that comes with curly hair, their are some things you need to know.  So below is a list of my top 10 do and don’ts that I have put together for curly hair. I hope you all enjoy and definitely let me know which do or don’t you can relate. Have a nice day everyone, and thanks again for stopping by!


Hair Do’s

1.) Keep your hair moisturized because dry hair does not like to curl up. Pay most attention to the ends since they are the oldest part of your hair.

2.) Try to deep condition your hair at least once a week. Especially in the winter when the air is colder outside.

3.) It is always best to let your hair air dry because it can sometimes lead to frizz when using a blow dryer.

4.) Always prep your hair before you go to sleep. Either retwist your hair at night or do the pineapple method.  After doing the pineapple method, just put on your satin bonnet or sleep on a satin pillowcase.

5.)  Keep your ends trimmed. Even if you have curly or textured hair, you still need to say goodbye to those split ends. If you don’t want to do the trim yourself, try to find a stylist that is not scissor happy.


Hair Dont’s

1.) Do not over apply or over saturate your hair with products.  Especially if you have finer strands because heavier products can weigh down your hair.  For example: Shea Butter, Castor Oil, etc.

2.) Never comb or brush your hair especially when it’s dry and your curls are set. Because if you do, you will lose curl definition.

3.)  Try to minimize the amount of heat that you put on your hair.  Sometimes excessive use of blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons can lead to heat damage.  If the heat damage is too bad, it may result in irreversible damage.

4.) Never detangle on dry hair.  Detangling on dry hair may lead to single strand knots and breakage.

5.) Last but not least, do not be unrealistic about your hair.  Never be ashamed of your curls and embrace what God gave you.  Because at the end of the day, no two people have the same curl type and pattern.
