Being able to connect with Whitney was much more enjoyable than I’d even imagined. I was looking forward to delving a little deeper into her life as a mother, wife and business woman and as I anticipated, during our conversation, her spirit unfolded over the hours revealing a woman who is authentically sincere and kind. I meet lots of amazing women, who in their own right inspire me as well, but the wisdom, humor, humility and unabashed candor and poise that she embodies all at once delivered a refreshing melange. I agree that Whitney is the same person as “Naptural” is online as she liked to point out, but there is something more there, possibly something even she does not see. I think it was those moments of being able to feel her ‘it’ that made me proud to spend time and share space with a woman who also feverishly seeks out seeing the ‘it’ in other women too. READ MORE

“I sometimes hate to define myself because I am forever evolving, but I am a woman who loves dreaming. I’ve always lived in my head and imagined all the wonderful, beautiful and limitless possibilities of life. And life in my mind almost mirrors my life today with some exceptions. I believe anything is possible, I’m always shooting for the moon and the stars. I am constantly evolving, just like the saying, ‘For every day is a new journey towards self awareness and discovery.’ READ MORE

“I started sewing when I was probably 12. My aunt is a seamstress, she does bridal gowns. I was completely taken over by it and I would sit in there and I would watch her. Eventually I got my own machine and I started making all of my own clothes which was a trial and error kind of thing and it really wasn’t until my late 20’s that I decided that I was going to try to take it serious. I couldn’t afford Prada so I’d look at it and make my own Prada. I continued my road in sewing when I realized how many other young women found sewing interesting but they thought it was like an old person’s thing to do or crafty. So I took what I was doing and turned it into something fashionable, something that everyone could learn to do, and that is my main goal – teaching. I love to teach. READ MORE

“I naturally wake up early. I fill up a big glass of water and update myself on the latest from my favorite magazines: InStyle, Harper’s Bazar, Lou Lou, which is a Canadian shopping mag, Lucky and RedBook. After about an hour of that, I workout for 45 minutes on the treadmill. After my workout, Theo, my husband, is usually awake. He asks me what I want for breakfast and proceeds to cook for us both while I have a quick shower. Theo always cooks and he’s awesome at it. And since he cooks, I eat whatever he wants to make. I’m not picky, I’m just thankful I don’t have to. I eat breakfast with my husband every morning. I have always carved out time in the morning to spend with my guy. READ MORE

"When I was young, I believed my chocolate skin, my curly hair, my wide hips and big brown eyes made me the most beautiful girl in the world. I love the rich color of my skin and my big beautiful eyes and I love that I am giving, supportive and nurturing, but most importantly I am a woman of faith. My spirit makes me a beautiful woman. Beauty starts from within. If you don't believe you are beautiful, no one else will. And once you are 100 percent sold out on your beauty there is nothing anyone can say, good or bad, that can change how you feel about yourself."

"We are our own harshest critics. It seems cliche to say beauty comes from within but it’s so true. Happy people just always radiate beauty, and good and kind people are beautiful. Even though I’m still prone to days where I feel like crap, I feel most beautiful and confident when I stop with the criticism, when I find time for the good things and good people in life. When it doesn’t matter that my teeth are crooked or my skin is imperfect. When I am surrounded by love and positivity, that’s where beauty is."

"When I was a little girl, I cared very little about beauty. I was being a tomboy in the creeks in my neighborhood. But when I was a teen...If I could go back in time, I would tell her to embrace your weird features, dress for yourself not the trends, lay off the foundation - my face never matched my neck, tragic - and become comfortable in your own skin. Easier said than done, and it's taken me years to truly be comfortable with myself. Now, I'm kind of obsessed with inner self, and I let the outside follow its lead, not the other way around."


“I’m an open minded, free spirited being who was born and raised in South Central, Los Angeles and always takes chances. I do what I want when I want because I believe that unadulterated physiological and spiritual liberation equates to pure bliss. I actually have the word bliss tattooed on my hand. But It’s in Greek.
