BECAME A SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER WITHOUT A DEGREE

Man I've been busy. A couple of weeks ago I joined a established clothing brand "Cupcake Mafia" as a social media manager and all it took was sending in a resume'and nailing the interview. Working in social media/pr was always my dream. When I was younger I'd look up youtube videos on how to get into that field. Now that I'm in it; I see that it isn't all glitz and glamour. It indeed takes work a lot of work! At times I forget this is what I had always wanted. The Universe was like well here you go. Now I gotta go hard in all the things I do making sure everything is 100% right. I just have to remind myself "Natasha you love this remember?

Inteview/ Khary Durgans

Introducing Khary Durgans; a young guy with a sick flow with branding of a yellow raincoat. Lyrics of his takes the listener on a deep journey to his life, thoughts and cool vibes. Get to know Khary below.

LYFE:Who is Khary Durgans?

KHARY:A dope rapper from Providence, RI that now lives in Brooklyn. I started rapping in high school with my brother but eventually found I my own sound.

LYFE:What genre/ who musically influences you?

KHARY:Hip-Hop is my biggest influence but I really like all types of music. I’m a sucker for anything mellow/ambient that has deep lyrics. Lupe Fiasco, K-os, and Kanye West were the first artist to really reach me as a youth. Often feels like I grew up through music.

 
LYFE:What's with the yellow raincoat? Form of branding?

KHARY:The raincoat started about 4 years ago when I saw one in an army navy store. No clue why at that moment, but I just thought it was so dope so I had to buy it. My homie that was with me when I bought it thought I was crazy but something weird that I can’t describe came over me. About 2 years ago I started wearing it at shows and it became branding when I moved to New York. I had to find a way that I could be remembered in a city so big. Turned out it was already under my nose. Happened so naturally to me. Yellow is a humble color that at the same time says “LOOK AT ME”.

Does Your #Summer #Naturalhair Need Hydration?

Since the summer has started my natural hair has been screaming for moisture. I'm not sure what my hair type is; I'm guessing from 3c-4c from bottom to top. I co-wash every week with V05 moisturizing conditioner and about once a month wash with a shampoo (something  learned I needed to do since attending "The Natural Hair Convention") Anyway, I searched youtube and the video from Naptural85 hydration video helped. Although I don't use everything she did but I find a certain process and items work for me.

  • Cleanse Hair First With Water and Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Add V05 Clarifying Conditioner to damp hair
  • After Conditioning , add Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Conditioner
  • Dry lightly, distribute cold Aloe Vera (big jug found at Walmart for $6)
  • Add grapeseed oil to hair
Lastly , Style. Since adding Aloe Vera everyday and Grapeseed oil  every other; my hair is soft and hydrated. No more flakes and itch.
 
Hope this possibly helps for you.
