S M O O T H  O P E R A T O R:  3 weeks post my first laser hair removal treatment @birminghamprivateclinic and my legs are still smooth AF 🙌🏾 I haven’t needed even a quick trim since. ⁣My only regret is why didn’t I go this SOONER?! My first session dispelled a lot of misconceptions I’ve always had about laser treatments. ⁣⁣1. It can definitely be done on dark skin. ⁣2. You can still get your bikini area (full Hollywood 😜) done on your period as long as you are comfortable 🙌🏾👌🏾 ⁣⁣What a weight off my shower routine this has been especially as my regrowth  is normally super quick. Have you ever had laser treatment?  #ad #gifted #laserhairremoval

E M P T I E S: (SWIPE LEFT) Something different for the feed...🤍Thought it’d be helpful to put together a list of my #empties. There’s always a lot of different products being inboxed, advertised and shown in tutorials. But what are you actually using through and through? These are products I use on the regular and would definitely repurchase because they’re all so good!👌🏾 More empties on my stories (this is limited to 10 unfortunately) and all links to products are on my blog (link in bio). Let me know if you want to see more content like this regularly. What are your empties?? I love to know what everyone’s loving 🥰😍😍 xx .#SelfCareSunday #SkincareEmpties #beautyempties

Camer Spotlight: Vanessa Myers

ABY once more delivers another inspiring interview. It must be tremendously hard for many aspiring models in Cameroon to get a breakthrough. It is a tough industry to get survive in, let alone get into. Mais, l’impossible n’est pas Camerounais! Cameroon-born Vanessa Myers is one of the few faces that is putting Cameroon on the grid. I had a chat with her and here’s what she had to say.

ABY: Hi Vanessa! Tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from?

Born in Limbe, Cameroon, I lived in Yaounde and grew up there for the most part. It’s at the age of 13 that I came to Canada to continue my education and follow my dreams. I am the first to a family of two and I have a little sister.

ABY: Whooo, I’m from Limbe too:) When and why did you get into modelling? Was it for the glamour? The money? Pure kicks?

I started modelling at age 18 in Ottawa,Canada and my mother agency is Angie’s Models & Talent. To be honest, I started because I love to dress up and I always dreamt of walking a real runway since the age of 10.

ABY: Have you always known that you were going to be a model?

I never knew I would come this far in modelling but I had hopes.



ABY: What is the most challenging thing about what you do?

Challenges, well there is obviously a lot of competition between the girls but we all are unique in our way.

ABY: What work are you most proud of? Why?

I’m most proud of one commercial I did for Journalists For Human Rights(JHR). The commercial brought ht awareness to
the violence against women in South Africa and I had to portray a South African lady being abused. It was emotional and when you get into the role of that person, it gets emotional because I can’t possibly imagine what these women go through daily. It was an unforgettable experience. Directed by Award Winning Director ; Steve Gordon.





ABY: Who are some of your favorite models and designers, and why?

 My favorite model is Constance Jablonski because she is so flawless, beautiful and talented! I have quite a few designers that come to mind so its hard to choose but i really love Balmain by Pierre Balmain, the fabric is beautiful and the dresses are so luxurious!

ABY: Oh dear, I’d wear a Balmain design anyday, anywhere, anytime. (Hope he’s reading this). What are your favourite glossy mags?

I’d say the two magazines I read the most are Elle Magazine and People’s Magazine.





ABY: Your fashion mantra?

My fashion Mantra? I love simplicity…i think simplicity is sophistication on another level.

ABY: J’adore ton style! How would you describe it and where do you generally shop?

I don’t really have a specific style. It depends on my mood. I shop everywhere! I love American Apparel, Urban OutfittersH&M and many more.

ABY: The pros and cons of modelling for you are…?

What I love about modelling is the different people you meet and the whole experience is always exciting. Having to constantly watch my weight is what I hate the most but a healthy lifestyle is a good one.

ABY: Any tips for girls looking to get into your line of work?

For girls looking to breakthrough, I would say:

-Be sure you are in for the right reasons
Be yourself at all times
-Be humble
Work hard
Appreciate and enjoy every moment and opportunity you get.

ABY: Pretty solid advice. If you weren’t a model what would you be?

If i wasn’t a model, i’d most likely be your average girl next door 🙂

ABY: Hmmmm, let’s have one more look at this portfolio…

ABY: Nothing about this screams girl next door to me. *Side eye* Don’t know ’bout you. Actually, I love your skin! What’s your regimen?

Hahaha thanks for the compliment! I eat healthy but I have 2 cheat days when I can indulge in something like pizza or a burger. As far as workout is concerned, I run a lot, I play sports and I do long walks when I have the time.

ABY: Lucky you! My dear if I indulge in a burger or two I shall be eligible to audition as Big Momma in Big Momma’s House…let’s leave it at that. What does the future hold for Vanessa Myers? 

Hmmm…for the future, i can’t spill too much but i’ll definitely have some exciting projects coming up!

ABY: Where can people see your work?
