Former First Lady Michelle Obama on ESSENCE
Michelle Obama rocking her natural curls for the very first time on the new cover of ESSENCE’s December/January issue is everything to me. This past year I started flaunting my natural curls because it really is less hassle than flat ironing my hair in addition to being extremely cost-effective and saves so much of my time. It also helped to find the right product to give my curls the definition that I was looking for. I use Noodle Head Curling Creme by Beyond the Zone. It cost less than $15 to buy! I have been searching for products for years and have paid a lot of money to just now find this creme. Better late than never as they say.
Whether or not you agree with Michelle Obama's politics, there is no doubt that she is an inspiration to women and young girls of all backgrounds. She has always been a champion of healthy eating, education, and our veterans to list just a few. I would love to meet her one day and get one of her infamous hugs and to thank her for always being a beacon of positivity regardless of the circumstances.
Michelle Obama has been around the country promoting her book “Becoming.” My favorite television interview that I have seen so far has to be the one that she did with Ellen DeGeneres on the Ellen Show. Check out a clip of it here which highlights Michelle's eight years as First Lady:
In the Essence December/January issue, Michelle Obama gives us the scoop on her happiest days in the White House, how she balanced both a career and a family and shares advice on how to find a partner that shares your same goals and aspirations.
A quote from the ESSENCE article on her happiest days in the White House: “Any day that I got to spend time with children was a good day. Sometimes if I was in need of a pick-me-up, my staff would schedule an event with young people to give me a boost. Kids give me energy. They get me out of my own head and remind me about the things that are most important…” Michelle Obama
