Preparing for Summer with Moroccan Tansy

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Recently I was asked to be a product model for the Bay Area based vegan skincare line Moroccan Tansy. I have blogged about their products in the past but never expected to become the face of their brand.

This was such a great opportunity! In the past, I have been a hair/ product model for  beauty salons in Sacramento, but this was my very first time modeling a skincare brand. I was pretty nervous because I struggle with skin and I have my own personal insecurities when it comes to my skin. I’m also not a size 4/6 anymore so modeling on the beach was pretty intimidating.

The experience was actually amazing! The shoot was at the Gray Whale Cove State beach, located on the Pacific coast. The weather was perfect we shot later in the evening so we had great sunset lighting. The Founder of Moroccan Tansy, Monica Lazrek had everything planned out. She provided the swimsuit and cover ups. There was an assistant on site that made sure everything ran smoothly. The photographer was really helpful and great to work with. This was hands down the most professional photo shoot I’ve had. The team made sure I was content and always comfortable.


“I think you are very beautiful and having an African American woman represent my brand is a big win. Part of what makes my brand unique is we are not the cookie cutter skincare, we stand out and we offer affordable luxury to make every women feel beautiful! :)” – Monica Lazrek, Founder of Moroccan Tansy

Here are details of the products I modeled:

The Moroccan Tansy body butter contains a potent dose of blue tansy! The essential oil is the dominant ingredient, providing a luscious whipped and easy to apply cream, that goes on light and non-greasy.
A little goes a long way!
Hand-whipped with Moroccan blue chamomile butter and blue tansy, prickly pear, raspberry and rose water to create a fluffy texture, this cream promotes healing, rejuvenates the skin and protects against UV rays from the sun! It’s also packed with antioxidants that regenerate the skin cells and is an anti-aging remedy, safe to use daily
Recommended for those with mature, sun damaged and sensitive skin.

For a silky and soft all over feel, Blue Tansy body oil will thoroughly nourish your skin. Formulated with shea, prickly pear and watermelon oil, it will help soothe irritated skin, in tandem reducing the appearance of stretch marks and discoloration. Packed with free radicals to target problem areas, this oil absorbs easily into the skin leaving a non-greasy, soft, smooth feeling!
Above and beyond the hydrating benefits, blue tansy oils can heal scars and provide you with a calming feeling inside and out. It’s perfect for those with sensitive and dehydrated skin.

Made with blue tansy essential oil and hydrosol, this invigorating wash will leave you feeling fresh and clean all over. It works hard to polish away dead skin cells, buffing and leaving your skin moisturized and replenished. It’s great for baths and foot baths too! This amazing wash is packed with vitamins to give the skin a rejuvenated feeling.
This wash lathers to make sure that you are cleaned from head to toe. Once applied, you’ll be swept away by the aromatherapy. Use this to awaken your senses when starting a new day, or soak in a bath of it to relieve stress at the end of a long one!
Recommended for those with sensitive and/or dry skin.



The Perfect Trio for beach days this summer!

Thank you reading guys & we’ll talk more next week!


After graduating with my BA in Communications specializing in Public Relations, I gained experience in fashion merchandising, wardrobe styling, event planning, branding, office administration, and marketing. When I'm not working, I am active in the art and fashion community in the Bay Area and throughout California. Working behind the scenes at events like LA Fashion Week, Sacramento Fashion Week, SFA Student Showcase and accompanying costume designers like Michael Costello has helped build my knowledge and business relationships in the fashion world. I am just a fashionista and creative writer, who loves thrifting. I absolutely love all things Beyonce as well. I grew up a book worm so if I'm not binge watching TV shows or listening to podcasts, most likely I have my nose in a book. I started this blog after college as a first generation graduate learning, growing, and struggling to figure life out. In hopes of aligning others on a similar quest, I blog about my journey through career obstacles, the ends and outs of love, surviving gentrification in the Bay Area, the fashion & art community, mental hygiene in the black community, and pop culture. I also give lifestyle tips on natural wellness, natural hair, being a plant mom, and DIY projects. I write as a form of healing and self care, I pray that sharing my journey will help motivate community healing, therapy and growth for black creatives & entrepreneurs.
