If you’re at all active on social media you have probably heard of the young lady that has been taking the synthetic hair business by storm. Siyonna Webb found something that she was passionate about and was able to carve out a place in a very competitive and lucrative industry.
Love Lee Hair Motto: “When you look good you feel good. Providing human hair extensions, clip ins, wigs, lashes, bangs & more! Free consultations & samples. My goal & drive is to encourage women and promote health & beauty”
We had an opportunity to work with Siyonna on a photo shoot and was extremely impressed with her drive. It could not have been more evident than when we noticed her on her phone conducting business between shots.
We wanted to highlight this woman because she comes from our community and is making a positive contribution to society. We felt compelled to offer our support and encouragement. Check out Siyonna below modeling her product. For more information, consultations and inquiries email SiyonnaW@gmail.com.

We wanted to show some love to the Jefferson Demo Football team. As some of you probably know they are win-less this season. They have under gone a lot of changes with a new athletic director, new coaching staff, graduating seniors and players that have transferred to other schools. With that said, we make no excuses and point no fingers in regards to their poor performance on the field. What we would like the youngsters to know is that life is great when life is great, the true test of one’s character is how they respond to adversity.
Demo Alum, let’s do our best to get out and support these young men during the last two games of their season. They need our support now more than ever! They play their North Portland rivals Roosevelt this Friday 10/19 at Roosevelt at 7pm. Their last game will be against Benson and former head coach Anthony Stoudamire on Friday 10/28 at 7pm at Marshall.
Let’s do our part to restore this program back to it’s rightful place atop the Portland Interscholastic League. CLICK HERE to see more photos from the homecoming game.
Beaver Stadium is an outdoor college football stadium in University Park, Pennsylvania, United States, on the campus of The Pennsylvania State University. It is home to the Penn State Nittany Lions of the Big Ten Conference since 1960, though some parts of the stadium date back to 1909. The stadium is named for James A. Beaver, a former governor of Pennsylvania (1887–91) and president of the university’s board of trustees.
Beaver Stadium has an official seating capacity of 106,572,making it currently the second-largest stadium in the Western Hemisphere and the fourth-largest in the world.
Beaver Stadium is widely known as one of the toughest venues for opposing teams in collegiate athletics. In 2008, Beaver Stadium was recognized as having the best student section in the country for the second consecutive year.
The stadium is the first to have its interior included in Google Street View.
This is an opinion piece. No I am not a stylist nor do I work in the fashion industry. But I love fashion, read a lot magazines and follow the careers of professional stylists. This is not for you to agree with, and you don’t have to like it. Just my two cents.
Over the years I have witnessed (and been a part of) so many fashion faux pas that I just might agree with Portland being one of the worst dressed cities! (Travel & Leisure)
Now I know when other parts of the country see Portland, they don’t see the culture I come from but more of the “Keep Portland Weird” culture. Because we already know they are a total mess I will not discuss them. This post is for those that are a part of the urban, African American, black, and hip culture.
For years people have complained that Portland does not have its own fashion scene. They have said that we copy other states and don’t have a mind of our own. I agree and disagree. There is a sort of “Portland look”, which includes nice jeans, Nikes, TOMS, Uggs, North Face and Columbia jackets and runs across all cultures. And then there is the topic of discussion today. I think it is best that we make a list of the wrongdoings of the fashion in Portland. And I will give some pointers on how we can fix this.
And for later….
Over the last 13 years, Last Thursday on Alberta has developed organically, from what was originally a visual art event aimed at promoting the street’s art galleries, into an amorphous celebration of art in all its forms. The monthly event has become increasingly popular and, in recent years, has been attended by thousands of people, particularly in the warm weather months. (Info from Last Thursday On Alberta Facebook Page).
The annual Mississippi Ave. Street Fair is a community-building event that celebrates the neighbors, businesses and organizations that make their home in the Mississippi Avenue neighborhood (from N. Fremont to N. Skidmore on Mississippi Ave). The event honors history and tradition while embracing diversity and sustainability.
The event is brought to you by the Historic Mississippi Ave Business Association (HMBA) & the Boise Neighborhood Association (BNA). A portion of the proceeds goes to Boise-Eliot Elementary and the Boise Business Youth Unity Project.
