Arjaunjubri: As an artist, where do you draw inspiration from? When it comes to my music, I use my life and the things that I go through as inspiration. I try to make a story out of special moments or any life changing events.
Arjaunjubri: We are obsessed with your signature Ombre’ hairstyles, how often do you change up your hair? Thank you! I change my hair all the time! I constantly find myself getting bored and experimenting with colors. My hair is currently jet black and I’m not used to having less than 3 colors at one time.. lol. I probably try a new color every 4 months.
Arjaunjubri: How would you describe your personal style? The key to fashion for me is finding things that are affordable and unique. I sometimes challenge myself by picking out ugly items and seeing if I can make them work. I have fun with my clothing choices. I definitely find myself looking like a hippie 90% of the time.
Arjaunjubri: We love your character on 8 Days A Week, how did you get the opportunity to work on the show? I was so blessed to be a part of that production and cast. I actually received a call from the writer. She said that nobody else could play Jade and she’d love if I came in and read for the role. I guess the reading went well because we began filming a few weeks later!
Arjaunjubri: What’s your favorite beauty product that you just can’t live without? I have dark circles under my eyes so I don’t think I could live without my concealer lol. However, I love my eyebrow brush/pencil. Eyebrows are serious business in my house. My mother has made sure that I understand the importance of a clean brow .
Arjaunjubri: You always rock the hottest shoes, what’s your favorite shoe brand?! Half of my shoes are probably knock offs of legit brands lol! I love anything funky. Jeffrey Campbell’s shoes are amazing. I just can’t afford too many pairs just yet!
Arjaunjubri: What is your absolute favorite place to shop? EBAY! I am an Ebay junkie. The concept of just picking the item and getting it shipped to you is so epic to me. I also love Goodwill. People underestimate the amazing things that Goodwill can offer!
Arjaunjubri: Are there any future projects that we can look forward to you working on? I am currently working on a single and other acting roles. I am just riding the waves and allowing God to put the right projects in my life at the right time. 2012 ought to be a good year.
Arjaunjubri: What advice would you give to an aspiring artist? Love the art, not the perks of being an artist. If you don’t know who you are, this business can make you unrecognizable
