Angela Simmons looked amazing at Rollingouts Q&A. She wore a quarter length red dress and shiny red pumps. Her makeup was subtle. It appeared to me she was wearing MAC's Media lipstick with a light contour and bronzer.
Angela was very comfortable around the audience. At one point Angela moon walked off the stage in between taping the StarStudio segment. The audience loved her cheerful energy.
Angela plans to continue working in fashion. She has a faux fur line in the works. Angela sparked the idea after she watched PETA videos on animal cruelty and recently became a vegetarian.

After attending Rollingouts Q&A with Rich Homie Quan I have a new found respect for him as a person and artist. We (the public) often have a negative stigma about rappers. Not only did Rich Homie Quan prove the world wrong by being highly articulate, humble and kind hearted he gave an amazing live performance after the Q&A. I was impressed. Rich Homie Quan best known for his songs Lifestyle, Walk Thru and Type of Way is the poster child for the American dream. His hardwork and failures created a world renown superstar. A few things stood out to me about the Atlanta native; his love for God, family and plans for the future.
Rollingouts owner Munson Steed asked RichHomie several questions for their new StarStudio series.
Growing up Rich Homie Quan did not intend on becoming a rapper. He had hopes of being a professional baseball player. As an adolescent Rich Homie was very shy. Rich Homie maintained a 3.2 GPA throughout highschool and was also voted Best dress in his senior class. Despite Rich Homie's accomplishments he was unaware of who he wanted to be until after he was incarcerated for burglary. Rich Homie credits a lot of his success to his time spent in jail and his parents instilling hardwork and prayer in his life. Rich Homie tells Steed "When I hit the bottom only way I could go was up" and that's exactly what he did. While in jail Rich Homie wrote music, read books and most importantly found himself. His favorite authors are James Patterson and Steven Spillsburg. Rich Homie boasts he has not picked up a pen since he was in jail.
Rich Homie inspiring story encourages fans to follow their dreams. "It's about the youth, be positive, I've been put in a position to bless others". Rich Homie tells Steed "10 years from now I see my parents in a mansion, myself in a business suit, everything tailored and I will have 3 Grammys. When asked to describe himself in one word his reply was "swagking".
Some of Rich Homies favorite artist are Boosie and Kevin Gates. He also has a passion for style. "Never try to duplicate another persons style. It's in you not on you." He also encourages his fans to be bold. "Dont care what others think, boldness isn't an ego it's artistry".
I'll be the first to admit that I have neglected my relationship with God. College and my busy schedule... are a few of the excuses I have used. Now that the New Year is underway I have came up with a list of 5 easy steps to make your church going experience easier.
1. Find a church you enjoy.
Your praise and worship service should not be boring. If you find yourself falling asleep during service you are not engaged in the word. Ask other young adults in your city where they enjoy hearing the word.
2. Encourage friends to come along.
Church should be a fun experience... Include the people you love! Church is also a great way to meet new people and find activities to do during the week.
3. Schedule a church visit.
If you can't make Sunday service every week dedicate at least one week out of the month to attend service.
4. Become involved
Help out with the youth ministry. Join the choir or become a usher. You will feel obligated to attend and you will learn more about the ministry.
5. Keep an open mind
After your first church visit do not get discouraged if you did not enjoy the service. Keep looking. Actively search and you will be sure to find a place of worship you enjoy.
As a recent college graduate I began to ponder... What's next... what steps should I take in order to become successful. While researching potential career opportunities and people who have excelled in my field I ran upon an article I really enjoyed. Aliya Leekong from Entrepreneur.com inspiring segment "5 ingredients to doing what you love for a living" was quite beneficial.
