TRGB Media: It’s been a few months since TRGB has interviewed you about your success and beauty line Possible Cosmetics. Since then, what have you been up to?

Renata Roundtree: Oh Honey lol SO much! I think the BIGGEST thing that We’ve been up to is FINALLY getting into Major Retail! Im too excited of course we’ll discuss this more 🙂

TRGB Media: Congratulations on Possible Cosmetics being apart of Wal-Mart online. What was your reaction?

Renata Roundtree: Honestly, lol I still can’t process it, I’ve been secretly going back and forth with Walmart for a long time. I didn’t tell anyone because I really wasn’t sure the outcome! In fact, they denied me first but I literally called, emailed (and Walmart is actually impossible to reach) I did not take NO for an answer! There’s still LOTS of work to do but we’re in there!

TRGB Media: How has sales and marketing been going? Do you have a team that helps you push sales or are you the only one?

Renata Roundtree: Let’s just say I’m not a Millionaire yet lol… I do have a virtual assistant that helps when need be. However, the bulk of the marketing and sales are driven by me or by other channels that I use. Social media has been a big help but I absolutely plan to have a team to help me plan and execute better. Marketing to be honest is my weakness I actually hate it lol

TRGB Media: Let’s talk about current and future projects. Are you working on anything exciting?

Renata Roundtree: Yes. We are gearing up to hit a MAJOR retailer in Atlanta!!! Everyone knows that ATL is my second home. I can’t announce it just yet, but 1st Quarter 2019 Possible Cosmetics will be in stores in Atlanta GA!!!

TRGB Media: Also, I see that you are the guest speaker for Dreams to Founder Workshop and one of the panel spotlights for Glambitious. Tell us more about that.

Renata Roundtree: Yes, Im EXTREMELY excited to be apart of these events! One thing about me is I enjoy the empowerment portion of business. I like it more then selling Cosmetics lol I was born for it I have a radiant personality I can capture almost any audience I’m in front of and I have a story to tell. I’m serious when I say empowerment is so much more fulfilling to me, I’d much rather be doing these sorts of events more often!

TRGB Media: Are you still teaching young professionals how to start their own make up line? How has that been going?

Renata Roundtree: Yes, I actually just launched our digital course “ How to start a cosmetic line 101” on our website! That’s another thing that I enjoy.  Its selling pretty good and I take pride in helping someone establish a business! I’m a believer that you are able to share the information you have, especially within your community!

TRGB MEDIA: Does Possible Cosmetics have any new products in store?

Renata Roundtree: We actually just launched our pressed shimmer powders!! The customers are responding to those very well and I’m getting amazing feedback!

TRGB Media: How many years have you been in business?

Renata Roundtree: Well, I started this business journey in 2010 with designing custom shoes! I must admit at that time I had NO idea what I was doing. Lol I just knew I was gifted to create sells, Instagram ads; all those other things didn’t click to me yet until I started Possible Cosmetics in 2016! I’m a much better business owner now.

TRGB Media: What are some unique things that Possible Cosmetics offers that no other make up line offers?

Renata Roundtree: I don’t really see other makeup lines sharing their “secrets” here at Possible Cosmetics. We not only sell you a product, but we sell you information as well.  We also educate you to start your own business. So I’ll say the empowerment part is what is different about us!

TRGB Media: What is next in store for you and your business?

Renata Roundtree: RETAIL, RETAIL AND MORE RETAIL.  We WILL BE in every major retailer in America; I don’t care if it take me forever! We are planning a Possible Cosmetics TAKEOVER. We will be mentioned with the household names like MAC, Loreal, Este Lauder, Cover Girl etc…

TRGB Media: How can readers connect with you and purchase products?

Renata Roundtree: They can purchase our wonderful products along with our Courses at www.Possiblecosmetics.com also on walmart.com put *Possible Cosmetics* in the search bar 🙂

First African American Headliner at Coachella: Beychella Makes History!

Image result for beyonce coachella youtube

Coachella had some very talented performers, but nothing topped what Queen Bey brought to the table.  With two hours of performing time and several outfit changes (including nail polish changes), her performance wasn’t just any regular performance at a Grammy Awards show or BET Awards show, but a lesson on cultural pop culture.  If you haven’t seen the performance, you are really missing out on history in the making. Let’s get started on her performance in different categories.  

Image result for beyonce coachella youtube

The Intro: Crazy in Love

Have you ever been to a homecoming at a HBCU and the everyone couldn’t wait for the bands to perform?  That’s how the intro felt like.  Beyonce came in wearing a very distinct black and gold long chic outfit that represented the leader.  It’s like a band director type of thing that left the crowd speechless walking in and the band wearing yellow shirts with her initials on it.  “BK” 

Image result for beyonce coachella youtube

While the band performed and the dancers were lit, Queen Bey had enough time to change into her second outfit which displayed the yellow and black sweat shirt and cut up jeans and make shorts with her white boots with fringes on them.  One thing I can honestly say about Beyonce is that she doesn’t need to go all out on her fashion wardrobe to prove a point.  Every outfit she puts together fits her and her taste in fashion.  Get ready for a work out because if you ever watched a step show with the ladies stepping, it is like a work out every time.  Beyonce’s dancers strutted their stuff showing off their potential and moves and long legs I may add stepping with power. Then when Beyonce joined in, it was a wrap!  You can tell that these ladies practiced the routine for about a year prior to the show because their legs almost touched their heads!  This was definitely a performance to see!

The Reunion:

 

If you are a true Beyonce fan, then you should already know that her career got started in the group Destiny’s Child that includes Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.  The reunion of Destiny’s Child on stage singing some of their hottest singles such as “Say My Name” and “Soldier” really took us back to the early 200’s! It is great to see the popular girl group come together as one and perform at Coachella.  What were some of your favorite songs by Destiny’s Child?  Mine are from The Writings on the Wall; first album: Say My Name, Bills, Bills, Bills, Bug-a-Boo, Jumpin, Jumpin and Sweet Sixteen.

Jay-Z and Bey: Stronger than Ever!

Image result for beyonce coachella

I love this couple!! They bring so much life when performing and despite some personal issues between the two, they have bounced back stronger than ever and still are great!  On Beyonce’s album: B-Day, she performed one of her songs called “Deja-vu” where it features Jay-Z on the track. I always admire when the two of them performs together because it truly brings life!  They are a prime example of what real love is!  You bounce back from every difficult situation and stay true to the marriage and love.  With the parents of three beautiful children, I am definitely rooting for this couple!  Beyonce changes again to another sexy, but classy outfit with her name on the front.  It’s Bey’s world and we are living in it.  

 

I am my Sister’s Keeper!

Image result for beyonce coachella

This picture is life and everything!  I thought it was very cool to have Solange performing with Beyonce the last few minutes of her set to the song “Get Me Bodied” also on the B-Day Album.  These sisters were really twerking it out giving you a work-out watching them perform.  Solange was looking very chic in her black two-piece and blonde wig.  

Image result for beyonce coachella

They were definitely the talk of the show as a dancing duet together spreading that sisterly love.

Also on Solange’s performance, Beyonce danced with Solange.  This is one of the sweetest moments ever and will always be cherished in Beychella History!  And once again, you can see that Beyonce has changed up her wardrobe again and adding a black hat to complete her outfit.  

Bey giving us a Fashionista Show!

 Olivier Rousteing is the designer for Beyonce’s five outfit changes during this year’s Coachella performance.  

Which one was your favorite outfit?

Was Blac Chyna Wrong for Her Actions at Six Flags?

Photo Courtesy by TMZ

 

The news with Blac Chyna and 18-year old boyfriend YBN Almighty Jay is surfing and eating the internet sites like crazy! Of course by now, I hope you all have seen the video of Blac Chyna’s rant and out-of-character rant at Six Flags while enjoying herself with her kids and boyfriend.  I’m not going to repeat what happened; you can simply visit http://www.tmz.com to read the detailed story.  But yoooo, really?? I understand trying to protect your children from danger and harm and yes that’s totally fine, but when you get buck-wild and show your “ghetto” side, it can be very messy. Now hear me correctly that I felt Blac Chyna was only trying to protect Dream, but it turned almost into a deadly scene.  If you don’t want people touching your kids, just simply tell them “Please don’t touch my child or children” in a nice respectful way.  But nahhhhh, Blac Chyna decided to show her ghetto side and tried to “swing” the baby stroller at the victim (who is 18 years old and came forward)  I mean by watching the video, the girl did called Blac Chyna a hood rat and that’s what sparked a fuel in Blac Chyna to go beat her butt!  So the real question is, “Is Blac Chyna in the wrong for checking the random chick about touching her daughter without permission?” In these days and times, you don’t touch NOBODY’S child unless you have permission to do so!  But the whole stroller situation was a bit insane, because now new news has been confirmed that  a stroller company she was collaborating with called “Momiie” has now been terminated according to The Hollywood Unlocked website.  After the stroller incident used as a weapon was the final last straw and pulled the plug with Blac Chyna.  SMH.  First her sex tape was leaked and now this! When will it be over?  Not only to mention that her EX Rob Kardashian wants to take her to court and try to reduce child custody for Dream.  A lot of people agreed that Blac Chyna should have handled the situation in a better way.  It would have made things a lot better in my opinion.  

Then to have your boyfriend try to jump in and allegedy punched the victim in the face? (according to the 18-year old known as Sexxii Lexxii on Twitter)

 

So Rob is thinking about having some rules for Blac Chyna and her boyfriends she has that they aren’t allowed to be introduced to the kids unless the relationship has been solid for at least six months.  I totally agree with that new solution.

So after doing some more research of the story of Blac Chyna and the stroller incident, I come across this video that now the victim has CHANGED up her story when she talked to TMZ! We got the official receipts and the exact words of this victim claiming “she slapped the Dog S*** out of Blac Chyna!” I’m not sure if Blac Chyna should sue this young chick but now I’m wondering why she changed up her story? Lawwddd, I’m getting stressed reading all this mess Blac Chyna has stirred up and not to mention, her young boo thang is caught in the middle defending his boo no matter what the wrong she has done.

Hustle and Soul Recap: I’m Back Bishes!!!

Image result for hustle and soul

“Can somebody please turn off the heat, because it’s flamming in this kitchen! If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen!”  

Whew! The new season of Hustle and Soul is Flamming sky high and has officially broke the thermometer!  The Pink Tea Cup located in Brooklyn, New York is ran by Lawrence which is the Owner and CEO and it’s lovely staff, Ana, Thandi, the twins Dominic and Stefen, Sana and now the new bartender, Cola.  Besides the great food and hospitality, the drama is very public at the popular restaurant and everyone can feel the heat front and center.  It’s like sitting in the audience at the Jerry Springer show because you never know when a fight is about to break out.  But the drama has still rolled over to the new season and Lawrence has gotten himself into a bit of a love triangle I should say.  Okay so Ana is the “baby mama” of their son and has been together for about seven years.  Seven long years of staying together and not married. That’s the question I would like to know, “Why didn’t Lawrence pop the question since they already acting like husband and wife?”  The ladies must really love Lawrence because the now floor manager and once general manager has a thing for him and it’s more besides business.  Ana took her in when Thandi didn’t have anywhere else to stay and she was actually the one that brought her to the Pink Tea Cup to work!  Sounds like pure betrayal to me and now she’s after Lawrence for good.  I want to know why Lawrence couldn’t committ to Ana long enough so none of the nonsense didn’t have to happen.  

Like the saying goes, you can’t mix business and pleasure and that is exactly what Lawrence is doing.  He got these ladies all sprunged, especially Thandi.  I mean that’s Ana’s ex, but she is still the baby mama with more power.  Ana and Thandi never really got along for some reason at the Pink Tea cup because Thandi felt some type of way.  Maybe she wanted what Ana has, even Lawrence.  Last season when Candice (former bartender) was working there, her and Lawrence got into a huge arguement and Candice broke a lot of the glasses at the bar.  That was a very hard time for Lawrence and Thandi hung around claiming she would always be there for Lawrence.  He was crying and all and laid on Thandi’s chest for comfort.  I guess Thandi used that moment and ran with it because now she already done told Ana that her and Lawrence are a couple who apparently is sleeping together. Yes, he admitted that to Ana when he moved out of their place.  He really is in the dog house for sure and has dug a deeper hole for his grave.  Of course Ana did leave the Pink Tea Cup last season, but guess what?  She gave it some thought and is now back there and yes she took Thandi’s position as the General Manager; she took it back right from under her nose.  So now Thandi is back to being floor manager.  The expression on her face was PRICELESS! You sleeping with Ana’s ex knowing that they have a son together and you still don’t care?  I don’t feel sorry for Thandi at all from this point on!  She has no respect for Ana whatsoever.

Lawrence did admitted to Ana that he wants his family back.  What do yall think? Should Ana take him back and try to work things out after all?  I’m just not sure if Thandi’s heart and soul can take it if they ever got back together, but it’s really not her decision to make that call.  A girl got to learn how to stay in her lane for real.  But when Ana holds her first staff meeting after coming back and regaining her position as GM, I could feel that Thandi felt threatned and insulted.  Now Candice on the other hand did get fired from the Pink Tea Cup because of the incident last season and was working at another bar.  Sana and Candice were extremely close while working together and decides to pay Candice a little visit to see if she would consider coming back to the restaurant.  The twins has something up their sleeves trying to get Candice and Lawrence to sit down and talk one-on-one by telling both Candice and Lawrence that they wanted to apologize.  Although it was a big set-up, they eventually talked it out and both of them apologized. Now as far as Candice coming back to the restaurant, that’s going to add more drama on top of the old drama because Ana doesn’t like her. 

 

All-White Affair: The Big Surprise

If you watched the first season of Hustle and Soul, then you know Lawrence is big for surprises.  He always has something up his sleeve.  But this surprise will blow everyone away!  The big surprise everyone at The Pink Teacup has been waiting for is…….*drum roll please*……..The new Pink Teacup in MIAMI!!!! That’s right, there will be a second restaurant on the beach!  And guess who will be the owner of it? It’s ANA!  That was always her dream to own her own restaurant in Miami.  Way to go Lawrence making boss moves!  And that means Thandi will be running the one in Brooklyn.  So if Ana is in Miami, that means no more drama…for now.  But I’m curious though, will this be a good idea since Lawrence is in love with both Thandi and Ana?  Or should he just choose which restaurant to stick with? Honestly I thought it was a proposal all-white affair.  Oh well, Ana was very happy and I haven’t seen her that happy all last season long.  She deserves it!  But why is the new bartender Coca saying that Lawrence will be having different hoes in different area codes? Lol, lawd she’s a mess already.

So Lawrence thought it would be a good idea for both Ana and Candice to meet up to hash things out since they both had a lot of drama.  I’m not sure about the social media beef they had going on about Ana’s son, but Ana was really heated by that.  They didn’t have much of a conversation, because next thing you know, Ana done ran up on Candice and popped her on the face..the end!  OMG! Ana done put them paws on Candice.  Until next Thursday catch a new recap on what happened with Ana and Candice and will Candice be considering working at the Pink Teacup after all?

I love that Monster!: Cookie doesn’t play around!

Image result for empire

Chile get a cup of hot tea or better yet some Mascoto cause you gonna need it for the first episode of the new season! If you didn’t already seen the season finale last, then let me spill the tea and catch you up. 

Luscious Lyon was visiting his son Andre in the hospital because of a mental break down he had due to some medications.  Luscious was already suffering amnesia from a plotted death by his son Andre.  Luckily he survived, but his memory didn’t. The family hires a nurse whose name is Claudia to work with Luscious to gaining his memory back.  But let’s just fast forward to the new season.  He is drugged by Claudia who portrays to be a nurse working at the hospital.  So this psycho patch kidnaps him and takes him back to her place which looks like a place to kill people to be honest. Looks like a scene from a lifetime movie on the real.  Claudia has been known to take “her methods” a little bit too far.  Well heck yea!  What nurse kidnaps their patients and chains them to a piano?! Lawddd! This is too much tea yall!  But keep sipping.  She likes it better when he is Dwight (Luscious’s real name) because Dwight is that kind and sweet-hearted person and not that hard-core thug who kills people. When he lost his memory, Luscious had a hard time coping with his identity so his family tried to help him remember a lot of music he wrote and recorded hoping it will trigger some of his memories.  But nawww! Claudia wasn’t about to have that.  So now she is trying to win his love by kidnapping a man everyone knows and Cookie loves.  

Image result for empire

Claudia wants Dwight who is kind and has a creative soul so to speak.  She tries to brainwash Luscious to thinking he is Dwight. Like really? Luscious will never be no doggone Dwight!  Do you know what he is capable of? Somebody lock this honey boo-boo psycho up for real!  Let’s pause and switch over to how Cookie’s sons are doing.

 

Jamal is dealing with another rough patch in his life, the first one was getting shot at an event for Empire and the second one was shooting and killing someone while protecting someone else.  As you all may or may not know Taye Diggs played on the last couple of episodes last season as this bad-ass politician named Angelo who fell for Cookie hard.  But things got pretty dirty and messy when Angelo’s mother played by Phylicia Rashad sets up the family by giving Andre the wrong medicine making him hallucinate, turning the Lyon brothers against each other, having Bella taken away from Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) It was just too much drama last season.  So Angelo go pays Jamal’s boo-thang a visit and things just gets out of hand and luckily Jamal (Jussie Smollet) comes to the rescue and they end up fighting and Angelo pulls out a gun.  After all the fighting, Jamal pulls the trigger and now Angelo is dead.  That’s something hard to deal with, but he was only protecting someone.  

Image result for phylicia rashad empire

Becky who is Empire’s assistant and played by Gabby Sidibe has had a great season on the show since the first season of Empire.  But last season we could see that Becky was dabbling around with a secret boo.  But now she ends up pregnant.  It’s really bothering her because she didn’t see being a mother in her career life.  I mean Becky was always on top of everything for the company, hands down!  She had a whole bag full of pregnancy tests in her purse that read all positive.  Girl you pregnant! You will be alright Ms. Becky!  Now let’s get back to Luscious who is still chained up and has to find a way to get loose from the psycho.  He tricks Claudia to thinking he still needs her therapy and when she gives her a hug, he tries to kill her by choking her.  Too bad she doesn’t die.  They get into a brawl on the floor and she attacks him with a gun (not with bullets) but with one that had a tranquilizer in it.  She has some type of device that puts out a red bright light to give him a migraine and all of his music plays on top of each other.  Now that’s a nut on the low!  Of course when Cookie gets word on where Luscious could possibly be, she goes off to find him and indeed she does.  Of course Claudia let’s her in after Luscious promises her that he won’t do anything stupid after Claudia threatens to kill Cookie. He turns back into Dwight and plays that role pretending that he still needs more therapy so that he can save Cookie.  Smart, but crazy move.  So of course Cookie leaves the house confused and hurt.  A quarter of a mile down the road, she realizes Luscious is lying and that he wasn’t working on any new music when she has flashbacks to the song he was playing at Claudia’s house. 

Image result for claudia and cookie empire

When Luscious reveals his love for Cookie to Claudia, she becomes irritated and upset and ol’ girl wasn’t having that!  Cookie returns and Claudia hits her upside the head hard.  Down goes Fraser! When she wakes up, both of her hands are tied up with rope to a table and so is Luscious’s .  Cookie and Luscious has a deep understanding and connection that no one would ever understand not even Claudia who didn’t understand their life from the get go.  Of course she tries to play a therapist again and telling both Luscious and Cookie that their love isn’t real.  Luscious revealed that the game and the streets brought them together, not love.  But trust me, if you have been keeping up with the show, they both show their love in such a crazy way that nobody will every understand.  I believe they don’t understand it themselves.  Claudia is only playing with Luscious mind to help him realize it.  Cookie is claiming Luscious to be a real monster, but she confesses to Claudia that “that monster” is hers and she is willing to fight for what is hers!  Ok now! Claudia you better watch out!  Cookie escapes somehow and Claudia and her both go toe to toe.  Claudia tasers Cookie and Luscious tries to free himself and when he is, he punches Claudia in the face.  That’s what you get psycho!  Cookie wanted her dead, but Luscious or Dwight doesn’t do it just to prove to Claudia that he isn’t a killer.   She ends up going to jail or a nut house I should say.  Now that’s a lot of tea to spill in just one episode!  Tune in every Wednesday at 8 PM EST on Fox for new episodes of Empire.
