I usually don't do this but I wanted to be normal for a second and talk about normal daily life lol! If that makes sense, well us women are always spending unnecessary money on products that NEVER work! I am a VICTIM, yes victim of the "waste your money" help group. Until now, I recently have been an avid fan of the all natural website and I freaking LOVE it! I've gotten so many tips on my hair and skin care as well. Please check it out ladies it is soooo worth it!

Now, I pride myself in having pretty good skin but every now and then I would suffer from breakouts. It was starting to get out of control. After immersing in Curly Nikki's website for natural hair maintenance, I discovered homemade skin care remedies on the site as well as (<--- THEE ISH!!!)

One remedy that caught my eye was the Brown Sugar Facial Scrub. I am an AVID fan of brown sugar I use it on EVERYTHING! I haven't touched regular sugar in YEARS! Brown sugar is the truth y'all! Anywho, here is the recipe for it: (Note: This is the measurements I use, your skin may be different so measure accordingly to your problem.)

1 TBSP of Brown Sugar
1 TBSP of honey (I suggest raw honey)
Several drops of  Lemon Juice
Few drops of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

Apply in a upward circular motion, let it sit for 15 minutes, massage with the tip of your fingers very GENTLY, rinse, then apply a steaming hot towel on your face until it cools, then moisturize.

*Brown Sugar exfoliates dead skin cells, tighten pores, evens skin tone.
*Honey is a humectant that retains moisture in the air.
*Lemon Juice is a skin brightener, lightening dark spots and blemishes
*EVOO softens and moisturizes the skin without clogging the pores.

I have sensitive/dry skin so its a must I add EVOO, I have a few blemishes so the lemon juice def helps. I added these two but you don't have to. I also moisturize with Unrefined African Shea butter after.

Proof that this stuff works here are two before and after pics. (NOTE: I am wearing make up but its very light, Bare Minerals).

If you zoom in on the pics my pores are tighter in the 2nd pic. This stuff works! So try it out and let me know what you think!
XOXO, Keila

Big Things Poppin', no T.I!

Hey everyone, hope all is well with ya! I'm overdue for a post plus there are a lot taking place. First, I just relaunched my website, and I love it! So, after reading this please take a look at it and see all the new up dates! Plus, I just launched my website for my production company, 3XEntertainment take a look at that as well!

My new web comedy sketch show, KO.TV is officially launched as well, this is the preview teaser until the first sketch drops so check it out and laugh!

I am also working on a pitch for a short film I wrote that I plan on filming in the summer. This is a very important pitch because I am seeking funding and pushing for it to be turned into a feature film!

Other projects I am working on: I just signed a contract for the indie film I will be shooting in June and I had my first fitting for it, super exciting!

"Wassup En LA" will be filming in the summer, I know a lot of you have been inquiring about it and thank you for your interest! The original scheduled shoot was in April but has been pushed to summer, so it's still going down y'all and I can't wait! Please check out our site, and LIKE us on !

In addition to all of that, I am currently rehearsing for a short film that will be shooting in the summer as well! More details soon but I will be playing a teacher!

It's a lot going on and I'm just trying to keep the creative juices flowing and stay productive! There are other projects that I'm not ready to reveal yet but please keep checking back! I really do appreciate your support it means so much to me and I want to thank all of you for rooting for me. I am humbled. Until next time y'all, XOXO Keila.


So, about two weeks ago I was feeling really stressed and overwhelmed it was so much to do and not enough funding. I know people say hair is not important but I think it symbolizes things taking place in your life meaning making drastic changes to your hair. Well I was so tired of straightening my hair and I continued to damage it by not properly taking care of it. I decided I was done straightening it and I was going to wear it natural. Well my hair had lost some of it's natural curl pattern because I was straightening way too much. So I decided to "man" up lol and cut it off! Since then I haven't felt a single ounce of stress. I feel so renewed and refreshed; I really feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It's such a liberating feeling! I just love my hair and I'm really taking the time to care for it so that it can grow back healthier than before (this is my second time cutting my hair). I just think as African American woman we condition ourselves to have that European look i.e straight long weaves, lightening of skin. It's sad that we don't embrace our natural hair. I know plenty of women who would NEVER wear their natural hair out because they are insecure about the appearance. Men scream they want a "natural" woman yet they chase after the girls with the longest weaves, fakest nails, eyes, eyelashes, and unnatural body parts. I'm not trying to bash us I'm just saying take it back to our roots. Don't be afraid to embrace everything that is natural about you, flaws and all! I write this with my best intentions and hope you all feel inspired. Below are my hair pics over the years lol, enjoy. XOXO Keila
