My career started as a little girl watching my mom do hair. I grew up in the hair industry, helping backstage at hair shows, doing photo shoots working behind the scenes, etc. Skipping forward to high school, I took cosmetology as a course behind my older sisters Tyre and Taylor Phillips. Honestly, they’re my inspiration for me doing what I love. They both passed in tragedies. Tyre passed when she was 19 and she was an innocent bystander in a shooting in 2013 and Taylor was killed by a drunk driver in a head-on collision in 2018 when she was 23. They both we dope hairstylists. When Tyre passed, I lost my passion and love for doing hair. Read more>>

I began my makeup journey in high school. My passion began when I was on the dance team. I began purchasing different eyeshadow shades, pigments and of course, the ideal “red lip”. I would also apply other makeup looks on a few of my dance team members. One of my friends asked if I could do her makeup for prom. It started off as just a hobby and I began to take a liking to it. Read more>>

The Urban Goddiss Co was founded in 2013 after I became interested in wholistic healing. I started to research and study different herbs and how they are beneficial to the body and began preparing my own products for personal use. After I became confident in my creations, I decided to venture into launching my own line of high-quality holistic products. Read more>>

I began prepping for myself back in 2013. I’d bring my own meals to work and would always have at least two coworkers hovering over me during lunch to see what I had to eat for the day. One day, one of them gave me the idea to start prepping for people. I took the idea and ran with it. I started prepping in 2014 for my closest friends and began to create a following through word of mouth. Eventually, I left my job and took on my meal prepping business full time. Read more>>

I can remember back to the age of five or six when I use to give my holiday Barbies the “T-Boz” cut and my mom would be so angry with me until she realized I had a gift and allowed me the creative range to do as I pleased. Nevertheless, that lit an undying fire inside of me, which would soon turn into an insatiable passion to use my ‘gift’ to bring joy to others. Read more>>

I wanted to have lots of nice balloon decor for his party but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on the decorations. I decided that I would attempt to create some balloon decor items myself in an effort to save money. The event turned out nicely and after that many others started asking me to do their child’s birthday balloons and decorations. After doing this many times for little to no payments, someone advised me that I should do it as side job. Read more>>
