Tell us about Dayira Jones, the face behind DayyBella?

Dayira Jones is a 19 year old young woman with her head on right. She is currently a sophomore in college taking up mass communications, the owner of “Bella Bar Tees”, Socialite, and Fashion Icon. 

When did you first realize your love for fashion?

I grew up around fashion all my life and knew it was a big part of my life because my mom made it very important. I realized I had a eye for fashion in middle school about 12 years old when I used to lay my clothes out on the bed with accessories and etc. the night before school and consistently receive compliments on my outfits.

How did you come up with the name DayyBella?

DayyBella isn’t just a name, it is a brand also. I created that stage name about 5 years ago from my name ‘Dayira’ and inserted the Bella because it means beautiful . From that point on, I’ve been using that name for my social networks and etc. The reason the name got so big is because I created an enormous fan base over the years just by posting my everyday fashionable life. 

Who is your line “Bella Bar” targeted to? What type of clothing do you sale?

As of right now “Bella Bar” is only targeted to woman ages to 13-40. But very soon I will expanding that to men ages 15-40 and also children. My line consist of graphic quoted tees that can be worn with anything at any occasion.

You can add “fashion designer” to your title now. What other roles do you plan on trying & what can we look forward to from you in the future?

I have multiple projects that will be premiered very soon such as, being apart of a pageant as a judge, starting my DayyBella Couture Line, hosting seminars for young entrepreneurs, DayyBella party packages from ages 8-16, and more. So stay tuned!!

How has Atlanta helped you grow and succeed as a Business Woman?

Atlanta is a great city to pursue any dream in the industry (my opinion). There are so many opportunities out here and black people are so supportive of each other. I love it! This city has helped me groomed into this wonderful business woman I am today because there are many people who are in the same field as you and who you can connect with. It’s not a lot of hating, its more helping here and also networking is really big. 

What advice can you give to other young women entrepreneurs?

Some advice I can give other young entrepreneurs is know your goals, create business plans, be yourself, and work on something to better yourself or your brand EACH AND EVERY DAY. It works, I’m telling you.

This is The Boss Up, so what are three reasons you consider yourself a Boss?

-I make my OWN money at the age 19
-Respected by Many
-I’m focused motivated and determine to conquer this business 
That’s why I consider myself a BOSS (take notes)

Dwight Howard’s Decision


All-Star Center Dwight Howard had about 6 teams of interest, and after a long time of us holding our breath, he made the decision to join the Houston Rockets. But Dwight does not plan to leave the Lakers with bad feelings. He made this clear when he tweeted, “ I feel its the best place for me and I am excited about joining the Rockets and I’m looking forward to a great season. I want to thank the fans in Los Angeles and wish them the best.” The Lakers will make minor moves and adjustments this year signing a player or two to come off the bench. However I do not see any major moves happening at least until the next couple of years. Kobe Bryant posted the picture above from his Instagram account  shortly after the news broke. I’m glad to see good vibes coming from both sides. I look forward to more small moves being made in the NBA this off season. Stay Tuned

Rick Ross Talks Magna Carta Collab

So I just got done listening to Jay-Z’sMagna Carta Holy Grail” thanks to New York’s Hot 97 & I loveddd it. One of my favorite track was the collab with Rick Ross, “F-ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt“. In my opinion this was a perfect collab, Street Boss meets Corporate Boss. Check out the video above of Ross giving his take on the collab. He also talks about working on his new album, and of course says he’s gonna create it with a “Boss Approach.

Boss Chick Rasheeda & Just Plain Kirk


What started out as the TV’s perfect Black relationship is becoming the most talked about relationship on television. From what we can see, the relationship started getting hasty once Rasheeda revealed to Kirk that she was expecting their soon to be baby boy. From there on, Kirk turned into someone we, and  obviously Rasheeda weren’t use to seeing. He then tried to accuse her of cheating, and demanded a paternity test. Hmmm, how many happily married men ask their wife for a paternity test? What’s interesting though, is that on the very next episode of Love and Hip Hop AtlantaKirk was filmed doing the very act he accused her of. I never believe most of what’s on reality tv, but once it goes to Instagram and Twitter, it’s real. On June 22nd, Rasheeda made an Instagram post @Kirk that said “@frost117 if you can be on IG posting you should be able to pick up the phone your son is waiting for you???? Do you not see Ky’s calls????”  Also on the BET Awards red carpet Rasheeda said “we will see” how Kirk and her relationship plays out on the series. Do you think this is a publicity stunt or do you think it’s real? At this point I’m unsure, but whatever she’s doing, she better make sure it’s a BOSS move.

Jhené Aiko Bosses Up With XXL




Jhené Aiko should be named the music industry’s female underdog. Since her days of being B2K’s “little sister” Jhené has proved that she’s not your typical singer. WIth distinct vocals and free spirit, Jhene is talented and unique on and off the stage. Recently she stopped to chop it up with famed XXL magazine. Jhene talked about her highly anticipated album and the recent features she’s been apart of like J.Cole’s “Sparks Will Fly” and Big Sean’s “Beware“. In addition she also gave the lineup of five rappers she’d love to work with. Kid Cudi, Eminem, 50 cent, Nippsey Hussle, and Jay-Z were her top choices. Not your typical “dream-team”, but like I said, Jhene is her own self and this is what makes her such a blessing to the industry. I love Jhene and look forward to the album!

The Boss Up Exclusive Interview: Dr. Dannie

There’s no introduction even needed with this one. If there is a such thing as a Boss, Dr. Dannie is the definition! Fashionable Addictions is one of the most well-known boutiques in Chicago. She has successfully built up her brand giving her the opportunity to work with celebrities and clientele everywhere. The best thing about the interview for me is her humbleness and recognition of God. To me, those are the two main components of both being a Boss and being Successful. Make sure you hit up Fashionable Addiction for all your fashion needs & follow them on IG @fashionableaddictions 

Thanks Dannie !
