There are some careers where hands-on experience means so much more than the book work of it.
— La La Anthony
I want to write books.
I stay up really late, even if I'm not working; I don't go to bed early.
For breakfast, I usually like to do either a protein shake if I'm rushing out the door, or egg whites and turkey bacon are also a go-to for me.
As a mom, I know how important it is for my son Kiyan to stay healthy so he doesn't miss school days.
If you smell good, you feel good, and your day's fabulous.
People can tell if you don't know what you're talking about.
It was life-changing to be in high school and be on the radio. But it was a heavy schedule. There are some times I would work 2 A.M. to 6 A.M. and get off and go right to school. So it was really crazy but it was worth it.
In the house, I have a drawer that's just filled with Carmex. It's just my thing.
A fancy lotion is always a great gift for Mom!
I love Rihanna's products from Fenty Beauty.
I think people can read authenticity and they know when you're involved and when you're just slapping your name on something.
I'm all about trying to help others out there and giving the best advice based on my experiences - so if I can continue to do that, I'm really happy.
I feel so many times with clothing lines, they don't talk to women to see what they want.
I'm in the gym every day.
My family and God is my strength.
I have mountains of the blue Neutrogena makeup wipes in the bottom of the cabinet in my bathroom. It is all you see. We order them by the caseload.
In business, you cannot be afraid to ask questions.
I want to be a great actress.
You definitely have to find your passion in life, and then put together a plan to figure out a way to fulfill that.
I just feel like so many people see you do one thing and they feel like that's all you can do. It's always just do this and stay in your lane.
It's just all about the multi-hyphenate now. No one's just doing one thing. Even working actors have businesses and are entrepreneurs.
I went through that phase where I shaved the entire side of my head off - I actually love the way it looks, but it doesn't really work when you're walking into a room for an audition.
I was told MTV VJs have no career after MTV, and I'm like, that's never going to be me. I was always about not feeding into the negativity and proving to people that I can do more than one thing.
There's not a single person who loves Nestle Crunch more than I do.
I hate chapped lips. I absolutely hate chapped lips.
I'm always down to switch up my scents and love discovering new products.
Anytime you look good, you feel good.
Whatever's meant to be, will be. I'm a firm believer in that and I'll make it work.
Comfort is important. I wanna put jeans on and kind of forget about them unless someone is giving me a compliment on how they look. You don't want to be fussing all day, especially as a working woman or a mom running around with kids.
I've had jeans I liked a lot of things about, but then there would be one thing I didn't like, whether it was the bottom not being fitted enough or the top squeezed you too much.
I think that's why I was able to go so far in my life and career - because my mom always supported me, even when I had the craziest ideas ever.
I definitely pray.
I'm not one of those people that takes the best, best care of myself. I try to do better.
I'm a believer in finding a passion, hard work and definitely not giving up on your dream.
When you walk into a room and you're asking someone to give you money to finance an idea, that's never easy.
I have a trainer. I love to do regular weight training, and I love to do boxing.
I have great family and friends who constantly uplift me and make me feel good about myself.
In New York, I can be a little edgier - I'll wear sneakers, combat boots, jeans. In L.A., I don't go as far. I find myself taking more of a risk when it comes to style in New York.
Makeup is great, but you need to make sure you take it off at the end of the night - sleeping with it on is bad.
I refuse to take no for an answer on anything.
There are so many high-end body lotions. I just stick to cocoa butter. It works, I like how it smells, my skin is really dry and it helps with that.
There's no gift more classic and more beautiful than roses.
We moms are beautiful both with and without makeup, but I always love classic colors I can mix with anything.
If you walk out of the house and you feel like you look good, it changes the way you walk into a room. It changes your attitude and it changes your vibe.
I like to do my contour the bronzy kind of way so it is not too strong and you can see the highlights on the cheekbones. I use bronzer as my contour.
That's what's great about my circle of friends is we all really look out for each other.
I'm eating right.
My mom just always taught me to let people live, let people be who they are without restrictions, without limitations.
When you're in this world, you don't get to pick and choose what you go through.
