A girdle is a womans best friend

                                                                                              Sunday January 1, 2017


Dear Diary,





           They say diamonds are a girls best friend, well I beg to differ.

Girdle, Spanx, slimmer or shaper, you name it I won it. Girdles come in all shapes and sizes and are now available for men. There are one pieces, two pieces, thongs, shorts, full bottom, under bust, high waist, etc. Different shapers lift, conceal and smooth different places on the body. There are also specific shapers made for specific garments to for a complete and polished look.






                                                                            


                                                                              
 I personally wear a slimmer to workout and even under a sun dress. I recommend investing in a good set of shape wear. I like Spanx for form fitting clothing and for thinner fabric. They can be purchased online or at Lane Bryant. I also own body magic by Ardyss. Body magic is a little pricier, but it is well worth it. These can be purchased online or with a local ardyss dealer.

The art of bargain shopping

                                                                                                        December 24, 2016

Dear Diary,


    A few tips for being thrifty are to check sales ads, clip coupons, sign up for rewards cards and email alerts. You will be ahead of the curve by being the first to know on upcoming sales, promos and new items.  I think another important tip, especially for local and smaller business would be to build relationships with owners. Ask for a frequent shoppers card, sometimes owners will give special discounts to loyal customers. Coupons are the easiest way to save. It's instant savings. Some stores will offer rebates, buy now save later vouchers and even accept competitors coupons.

                                            " The more you buy, the more you save"

I like to shop at second hand shops, thrift stores and local boutiques. I also use app to shop online. You can find gently used name brands. There are many buy/sell/trade apps. You can also check out www.retailmenot.com and GROUPON for deals. There's nothing wrong with wanting to save, but don't be cheap. The difference between cheap and thrifty is buying something because its on sale even when it is of poor quality versus a bargain on something awesome. 

                                                            HAPPY SHOPPING

MISS EXXXOTICA 2016: Porche Bright

1. How was your time in Columbus?

Columbus has been a great place to build my career and reputation as an exotic dancer. Because of the more conservative outlook the city has, there is a challenge to bring people out of their shells and acceptance. This is an excellent way for me to work on my hospitality skills and requires myself to put my bubbly spirit on the front line more.

2. Where is your favorite place to travel?
I've traveled quite a bit since I graduated high school and gained my independence. I move to different cities about every 2 years because I hate feeling scheduled. All places have their hidden gems and societal regulations. So far the city that I can always have fun in is Portland. "Keep Portland Weird" is spray painted all over the city and the atmosphere is so creative and quirky and the food is incomparable.

3. I read on your Instagram that you are not in the porn industry, what type of work do you do?

I consider myself an entertainer. Here to build the feeling of acceptance and positive vibes. I currently work as an exotic dancer, not a stripper. Like Juicy J said, " It ain't a strip club if it ain't showing pussy." I don't bare it all so I try to fight off that label. I am a pole dancer, a positive persona (and yes I get paid to just be outgoing to every person I encounter) a burlesque dancer, model, promotional model and gorilla marketer. I am also working on building my singing, acting, and broadcasting skills. I try to exceed in being a well rounded performer because that's what an audience wants, value.

4. Any advice for someone getting into the industry?

Because the sex industry is so vast, my first piece of advice is define the lines of what type of work you are interested in. Many people will push your buttons, and your morals will be tested. Second major piece of advice be accepting to what you are evolving into. You never really know who you are until your judgement is tested for what you think is right for you. But after you are confident in yourself put your work in any ones hands that you can. Do it twice, but never lose your smile. Power of success comes with how well you present yourself. You only get one first impression. And like any project you do in life, find the positive in all your struggles and gains. It's so simple. And stay curious.

5. Where can people follow you on social media?
Everyone can follow my personal page on Instagram at: luckynumba27. I post some of my work on their but I like the art of mystery as well.

6. Congrats on becoming Miss Exxxotica 2016, what comes with the title? Has it helped your career?
Thank you, I am still getting used to hearing that. What came with my title was a nice fat check. Like the cool huge ones you see on tv and tons of recognition. I was already hustling my butt off that weekend to meet and greet every entertainer, photographer, and media cast in the building so to have the spotlight on me not only for my dancing skills but my personality was a sigh of relief. My work payed off during those ten minutes on stage. Since then, I have become much more proactive in building my career and has inspired me to not get stuck in the same motions for too long because there will always be things out there I can discover.
 




7. What would you like for your fans to know about you?

I want my fans to know that I struggle with self esteem issues like the rest of the world. My biggest mission in life is to treat everyone like they are golden. I find sanity in the oddest places such as the graveyard. My biggest fears are descending and time. I give all my credit to being a vitamin Nazi, I offer them to everyone. My favorite hobbies are debating, running half marathons, meditating, and wasting gas site seeing. I pride myself on being articulate and unbias. I love and appreciate all my fans, it's a great feeling to be noticed for more than my looks.

8. Any projects or events you have coming up?
I am starring in my first documentary! It is going to give a small glimpse into my entertainment world and dig deeper into why I choose to perform. It's called "Erotic Power 2" which will be available on Amazon Prime mid Fall 2016. I have a few small modeling auditions I am trying to get into but nothing set in stone yet. And I'm planning to be apart of the Exxxotica Expo New Jersey in November 2016.

EXXXOTICA " Sex isnt a four letter word" Columbus, Ohio

                                                                                                       Sunday September 4, 2016

Dear Diary,

       
       
Even in 2016 sex talk, porn, fetish and such is taboo. The crazy thing is some of the most conservative and strict people are heavily involved in some of the wildest sex scandals. Ohio might be a conservative state, but Columbus is a loud, proud, liberal and freaky ass city.  Last weekend was a great weekend in the city. There was so much to do. I spent the weekend at Exxxotica, a convention liberating sex, toys, and porn. I am so happy that they decided to add Ohio to their tour this year. This was Exxxotica's first time in Columbus, Ohio. 




       Exxxotica was held August 26- 28, 2016 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.  Exxxotica is a great chance to meet and greet with your favorite adult film stars, buy some novelties, get some autographs and win some prizes.  I like to network and shop, so I'm always excited to see who comes (no pun intended).  These types of events are also a main attraction for celebrities. They like to drop in and see whats going on. For instance, T.I. was there Saturday.  I got to meet some amazing people. I got a chance to meet the beautiful Cherokee D'ass, Misti Stone, and of the fetish world, Rubber Doll.

                                   Follow XXX Church on their social media sites @xxxchurch
                                                          " Jesus loves porn stars"


        It's more than just an exhibit. Exxxotica is also educational. For instance in the dungeon you got to experience a mild submission session and learn the proper and safe way to explore the BDSM lifestyle. They make you feel comfortable and not ashamed for liking what you like. Exxxotica gives people of the industry a platform to get the right information top the people.  I had the opportunity to interview someone from xxxchurch. They explained what the organization was about. I noticed that when I posted my photos form their booth people online were shocked at the name and had lots of questions. I met them at another convention earlier this year and was inspired by their message.



        On Sunday it was " Go Topless" day for women's equality. Columbus is known for festivals with topless woman. Check out www.gotopless.org for more information. There was also a charity for children to raise money for school. There is one more stop for the year in November in Edison, NJ. Be sure to check out the website for more info and event details at www.exxxoticaexpo.com

What happens in Vegas....AVN 2016

                                                                                                     Monday April 25, 2016


www.avn.com

Dear Diary,

         Back in January I got to experience something so exciting. First of all I got to go to Las Vegas and see my long time hooonnnniiiiiiieeeee, Lol, my home girl from college and and attend AVN 2016. All the who's who of the porn industry was in attendance. I've been to a few sex industry events and conventions but this one take the cake. Las Vegas is such a fun. I got to go to a swingers private party, see some amazing art around the city and eat some great food.  

      The beginning of the trip didn't start off so great.  When I landed the hotel bumped my reservation because they were over booked and I missed my check in time.  So the first night was hectic, but my girl let me crash at her place. I got to meet her beautiful family and her lovely mom.  The next morning I was able to get a suite with a fabulous view.


The weather was amazing. In January in Columbus it was like 10 degrees, so I was bundled up with a wool hat and pea coat. I got to Vegas and it was like 65. I'm like I could get used to this. The air is fresh and light with clay mountains in the background.  It was such a beautiful sight. So as a nature kid I was just taking it all in. 
 
Festivities  officially started on Friday, but registration and set up was Thursday. Thursday we got our media passes, swag bags and got to mingle with the Web stars.  The convention was broken up into different rooms where you could get samples, purchase movies, get autographs, and take photos with your favorite adult film star. There was a dungeon organized by a company call WICKED. They had the whole upstairs of the Hard Rock Cafe totally transformed into a BDSM fetish chamber. Anyone who knows me knows I looooooove a good dungeon. There were also live sessions on the main stage. 



 I came back with a ton of goodies.

 Penthouse was out in full effect with probably 2 of the biggest booths. I had a blast at their booth. They passed out their signature Penthouse Spirits. Their whiskey is to die for. It's very smooth and flavorful.

Tanky Tinks Mobile Boutique

                                                                                                     Thursday June 6, 2016

Dear Diary,








A few weeks ago I ran into Coyia Henderson from high school at the Heart of it all Fashion show at OSU. We did some quick catching up and of course discussed fashion. I got a chance to chat with her about he latest venture in the fashion world.  

1. What is the name of your styling company?

Tanky Tinks Mobile Boutique. 

2. Describe your style
My style if comfy cute or tomboy chic lol. I love items that can be dressed up or down. Distressed jeans with a button up and heels or those same jeans with a t-shirt and sneakers . I love to mix and match vintage and modern pieces. To be able to walk out of the house and know that I probably will not see a person dressed like me is great!

3. What made you want to be a stylist?

I started my boutique because I wanted to give others the opportunity to slay how I slay lol. No really I have always been told that my style is unique. And that is basically because I wear what I want and don't care what others may think about it. I wanted to give people a place to not only get those cute t-shirt dresses that they may see at there favorite store, but to get it and some vintage high-waist jeans and big vintage earrings all at the same place. Tanky Tinks is a healthy mix of vintage and modern fashions for the girl (or guy) that wants to stand out. Because fashion is not always about what you wear but how you wear it.

4. Where can people see your work?

Tanky Tinks Mobile Boutique will opening it's doors the end of spring 2016. It is a traveling boutique so it will be at different spots throughout the city. I will also host private shopping for customers who want to reserve the bus for themselves and friends. On both facebook (Tanky Tinks Mobile Boutique) and Instagram (@tanky.tinks) I will post new items, where the bus will be located on different days, upcoming events as well as outfit ideas and tips. A website will also be up and running this summer!









5. How do you update yourself with the latest trends and styles?

I look to the past. I believe trends always come back around. If you look in the magazines now at the distressed denim and crop tops that people wear and compare them to what was in the magazines 20-25 years ago you will notice similarities. I personally don't believe in do's and don'ts in fashion. I believe in finding what works best for you and owning it. So while I pay attention to the latest trends, but they don't necessarily dictate what I'm wearing.

6. What strategy do you follow to advise models of your best fashion tips (blog, web pages, magazines)?​ 

 When I offer people advice I start by asking what they want and what they are trying to pull off. Since I am in the business of selling clothes, I want you to be happy with what you purchase from me. I don't want you to purchase this dress because it looked cute on the next girl. I want you to purchase it because you are going to feel amazing in it. 

7. Who is your favorite designer?

I really don't have one. My style changes depending on my mood.

8. How long have you been styling?

My whole life! I have been giving styling tips for as long as I could remember. And although it may not have been anything professional, people have taken my advice to heart. For someone to ask me how I would put together this kind of outfit, is a great feeling because they are trusting me with how the world will view them. First impressions start even before you speak so to leave what your saying to the world by the clothes on your body, up to me is a honor.





9.whats in you styling kit/bag?

I always have an army fatigue jacket or denim button up because to me they go with EVERYTHING. I love a maroon lip so I always have a back up lip stick with me. 

 10. what is your favorite piece of jewelry, accessory, bag?

I LOVE vintage earrings. If I could wear a different pair everyday I would. I love the uniqueness of them. I also love sunglasses. I would wear a pair of fly sunglasses on the gloomiest of days just because they were that fly.

11. Where do you see yourself, brand/company in the next 5 years? 

I see my store not only as a mobile unit but as a store front as well.
I just want the opportunity to provide all kinds of people with dope and unique fashion. With the ability to stand out wherever they go because Tanky Tinks got them all the way together. I want to collaborate with hair stylist and provide the ultimate shopping experience and eventually do different charity work where I am able to provide the Tanky Tinks experience to those who may not be in a situation where they can afford to have it.

12. If you could style anyone in the world who would it be and why?
Kerri Washington because her style is so opposite of mine that it would be a challenge. She is such a beauty but to me, her style is dated. 

13. How would you style them?

I would love to see her in a pair of ripped/ bleached jeans, a nice tank, a vintage army fatigue jacket, strappy heels, and chunky jewelry. With her hair pulled up in a messy bun, a deep red lip and some over sized sunglasses. Just something completely laid back yet fierce that you would never expect from her.

Shooting at the Le Meridian: The Joseph

 
                                                                                                          Sunday April 3, 2016

Dear Diary,

   OMG I stayed at the beautiful Le Meridian: The Joseph and it was beautiful. I booked the Executive king suite for our photo shoot with Tre (@3thehardwaymedia). It over looked The Short North district on North High street in downtown Columbus.The bathroom was my favorite part of the room. The tub was beyond sexy and the frosty glass windows and doors only added to it.   It's definitely the perfect place for a stay-cation or a weekend getaway.  The ambience of the facility is amazing and the staff was beyond courteous. I felt like a celebrity. The hotel hospitality was nothing shy of the royal treatment.

   To continue with the royal treatment, for the models I had food, wine, and their photo shoot looks were laid out. I also offered hair and makeup services. I wanted to give the models a different experience when it comes to photo shoots and working with certain people. The ladies did a wonderful job. They all were shooting for portfolio and publications. This will be two of the models first publication shoot. The shoot was great.  We shot for The Ohio Edition of Angels magazine. While shooting, it starts to snow, rain, hail and be sunny all in like 2 hours. We were all cracking up like only in Ohio will you get all four seasons of the weather in one day.

I had a 2 day shoot. I shot a promo video and a few looks for Killer Curves Magazine. I wore a few LB/Cacique lingerie pieces that I bought on discount of course, and a few of my own Phantum's Phantasy Apparel items.  I also shot in a custom dress from my brand. I like to call it desert zombie realness.  The preview for those shots were freakin amazing. They looked like I was glowing. I really enjoyed myself. I've been shooting with Tre for almost 4 years. Every time we shoot its nothing but dopeness. After the first night of shooting, I was exhausted. I had some wine, snacks and crawled in that fluffy king bed. I haven't slept that well in a long time. Be on the lookout for Angels Magazine, Naked Hustle Mag and Killer Curves mag Coming soon.......
