I am also known as "Pinky" (a nickname given to me by my mom when I was a little girl). I am the creator of the "Lipstick, Iced Tea & Glitter" site. This isn't my first time in the blogging world. A few years ago I had a successful celebrity focused blog called "Cake & Ice Cream," where I shared my opinion on various celebrity based topics. I decided to move on from that blog to focus on other endeavors. I've been working as a hairstylist since I was in high school (I graduated in 2003!). I also styled hair in my dorm room while in college at Howard University (I did more hair than I went to class, lol). I am currently a hairstylist at Precious Place Salon and I am also a high school cheerleading coach (since 2009). Although I was no longer sharing my opinion on my blog, I shared it everywhere else, so much so that everybody encouraged me to get back to blogging. So here it is. I decided to make the focus of this site just about any and everything that women are interested in. Being a hairstylist, coaching teenage girls and being a girl all my life, I like to think I'm an expert on the topic, lol.
This isn't my first time blogging either, but contrary to Deondra I secretly blogged! I had a blog dedicated to my Top 5 Fashion picks and I currently have a home decor blog that I utilize for my own personal use. But I won't have any secrets on LIT I'm an open book! I have a Bachelor of Arts in English (reading and writing have always been my passions) with a Minor in Administration of Justice from George Mason University, a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Maryland and I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I am a true wildcard so it's impossible to box me in...I'm into everything from God, family and friends, I really really love home decor/interior design, trying out new recipes, stocks, crystals, meditation, sharing good vibes, designer shoes and bags, makeup and creating memories with my family and friends along whatever else I may be into at the moment. I am the oldest of 3 girls and I have tons of friends that I am extremely close with that I've been collecting since elementary school up unto now and I'm obsessed with each and every one of them. There is something so special to me about women, the lives we lead and our resilience, dedication and hustle to what we love, hence why being apart of this blog is so special to me!
I am what some would call a "girly-girl". I love shopping, make-up and getting my hair done (I really LOVE weave). I also love to dance. I was a dancer for over 15 years, including 5 years on a semi-pro squad. I was a dance teacher for 5 years and a cheerleading coach as well. I love cheese, rice, kids, being a mom (I have 1 son) and CHRISTMAS. A few things I hate are onions, gum (I absolutely hate when people pop it) and NAPS. I attended Longwood University and the University of DC, majoring in Art and Architecture. I am currently a Legal Principle Coordinator. This is my first time blogging but I have lots to talk about!
