(CB) My friend DJ Quiana Parks told me about the event DJ4C and about the cause and I told her I wanted to get involved anyway that I could help.

  • How has the organization impacted you personally? 

(CB) Personally, it brings me joy to be able to use my talents to help such an amazing cause.

(CB) I started DJing when I was 12 years old with my parents old record player and a cassette deck doing little mixes for my friends and family

  • How would you describe your mixing style?

(CB) Top 40s meets world. I like to blend hits with records you may not hear normally in the clubs or on the radio

  • What is some of the music you are loving as of late? 

(CB) I’m starting to fall back in love with RnB. I really like John Legends new project. There is also an RnB singer from Harlem named Jarred Scott who has some summer-time heat

  • What are some of your favorite music artists? 

(CB) Thats a tough one because I love all styles of music, but Marvin Gaye Miles Davis and Tupac all have a song for any mood that I may be in. So those 3 guys.

  • What are some of the projects you have been working on as of late? 

(CB) Working on runway music for SS15 fashion week. I’m also opening a pop-up mens boutique  in upstate NY that is launching in Fall of 2014.

DJ 4 A Cure: Flipping Facts 2 Fiction

f2f-1

Approximately every 3 minutes one person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer and approximately every 10 minutes someone in the US dies from a blood cancer.

Facts like these are the reason the DJ for a Cure movement began; the organization is comprised of a group of deejays, visual artists, musicians, advocates, and the dopest  cancer survivor, DJ Quiana Parks. They all came together with the sole purpose of raising awareness to fight blood cancers by using their creativity.

As you can tell DJ for a Cure is heavily rooted in the arts and all of you supporters may not be as artsy as you’d like, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help flip these cancer facts to fiction by helping to make a change. There are dozens of ways to help change the devastating statistics. Go check out djforacure.com to see how you can get involved.

Whether it’s donating a few bucks, attending the next DJ4C event, or joining the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light the Night Walk we are all capable of flipping the script on these facts and fighting for a cure.

Before you know it you’ll become the next ‘advocate junqui‘!

Beauty: WTF is Going on With My Face?

Screen-Shot-2012-11-27-at-2.20.10-AMSo for the past few months my skin is doing this new thing called breaking out! It’s the worst! My skin right now looks nothing like photo above.  I had clear skin all my life and now at the age of “none of yo’ damn business!!!” it wants to get pimples…ugh. So anyways, I turned to my imaginary circle of celeb BFFs (hey, Zoe Saldana and Cara Delevingne ) for advice.

That didn’t work!  While going to your friends is good for talking about good eyeliners, it’s a bit more complicated when we’re talking skin care — what works brilliantly for one person may be complexion kryptonite for another.

So today I finally went to a dermatologist as a last resort, the person to go to when nothing else has worked and your skin is in dire straits. My Derm gave me some great tips and product recommendations—  Here are some great tips for you…read more after the flip!
