Some of you may know Lynn personally or just being in Hollywood, CA this LA girl right here knows her stuff when it comes to Fashion & Beauty. Thank you all for stopping by hope you have time to hang out and get to know LA James.
Ranisha: Tell us about your Love Always LLC. What’s the mission and purpose behind it?
Lynn James: Love Always LLC is my company that basically opens up doors for up-and-coming talented individuals. I never had advice given to me when I was starting my career. So I started a company that does just that. Love Always acts as an aid to the entertainment industry, by leading talent to an agency or management. The mission is to help as many talented people as I can when it comes to placement.
Ranisha: When did you first start modeling? How did modeling help you grow as a person?
Lynn James: I first started modeling professionally when I was 16 years old when I was signed to one of the Top Ten Agencies Marilyn’s, as the first African-American model to work with them. Modeling has helped me grow as a person because I have been able to visit other lands and cultures. Modeling has extended my knowledge of the world in general through traveling.
Ranisha: Give us a little history on your modeling career.
Lynn James: I have been modeling for 10 plus years. I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the best designers and companies. I’ve traveled to China, West Africa and many cities in the US to model. It has always been a dream come true. And still is.
Ranisha: I know you have been best friends with Vanessa Simmons for over 10 years. What is a typical girl’s night with Vanessa? What can I do at home with my girls that would be fun and inexpensive?
Lynn James: Oh yes! I love Vanessa Simmons! We have been friends for fourteen years. She is more than a friend because she is a spiritual friend of mine. On a girl’s night, we usually go to a cool decked out spa and relax. We also brainstorm and exchange great ideas and goals in business and in life. We love going to “Hot Springs” spas as well. Vanessa always knows the best spas to go to. She is a spa finding Guru.
Ranisha: What does Beauty mean to you? How do you shake off the critics?
Lynn James: Beauty is in everything to me. I see beauty in all people and in all things. I shake of critics by not ever entertaining their negativity.
Ranisha: What is your favorite at home Beauty Care treatment? What do you give more attention to? your eyes, lips, or skin? What does this product do for you?
Lynn James: I love using great body scrubs and facial masks. “Shea Moisture” has a number of great smelling body scrubs that work wonders on making your whole body soft. I have some facial masks companies that I love. Too many to mention them all but check out “Spa Day Goodies” on My Beauty Corner Show on The YouCam MakeUp App to see all of them.

Ranisha: I see you are becoming the “Queen Boss” when it comes to Fashion and Beauty. What Beauty product is on the Golden Shelf at the Beauty Corner? Where can we find it?
Lynn James: My “Golden Shelf of Products” has expanded so fast over the last three months. So fast that I have not been able to keep up with them all on my personal website: http://www.mytvshowontheinternet.simplesite.com. Since I have been working with YouCam, I have been featuring all of these products on a weekly basis on my “Weekly Picks” shows on my profile (Love.Always.LLC) on the YouCam MakeUp App. I always tell where you can get these products as well. So check back every week for new products I add-on my profile.
Ranisha: Do you have a Beauty line or products that you are working on or would like to work on in the near future?
Lynn James: I would like to one day soon put out a line of Shea Butter. My mother actually makes her own shea butter and we call it “Diana’s Shea”. My daughter came up with the name so it is definitely a family affair. I plan on developing this more and putting it on the market in the near future.
Ranisha: I love how you call all your followers your friends. I think that is so warm and heartfelt. Are you always this welcoming with open arms? What are your challenges when it comes to people?
Lynn James: I feel like my followers and viewers are my friends because they’re allowing me to be a mentoring force in their lives. I always see the good in people. This sometimes causes me pain because I ignore signs of possible red flags in a person’s being and get hurt by their negative actions. But I feel better and happier when I am this way so I continue to see the good in people no matter what.
Ranisha: I have seen you reference scripture so I know your faith has carried you on your journey. What scripture has gotten you through the most difficult times?
Lynn James: “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.” – Isaiah 54:17
God is the only one that hasn’t changed over the years. He is always there for me. No matter what. Glory to God.
Ranisha: We love the Motivation Station on the Beauty Corner Show. What motivation do you want to leave us with that will keep us motivated on our vision and goals?
Lynn James: Never give up on your dreams and goals. Write them down to make sure they have all the things you want in them. Cherish the rain because the harvest won’t happen without it. So when life feels like it is raining, know that there is a big breakthrough about to happen in your life! So keep going!!
