I've known Vic Jagger literally since she was "Shaquana" on the Russ Parr Morning Show and I've been stanning for her ever since. Vic took a break from radio and started the Private Suite Collection, which features luxe coconut wax candles and self-care essentials. Trust me when I say, her Private Suite products smell amazing and are essential for those Saturday morning house cleaning routines. I mean is your house even clean if you don't burn candles? Lol.
With determination, Vic has returned to radio and now has her own show "VJ in the Midday" on Majic 102.3 from 10am-3pm. She recently got her real estate license and also started Private Suite Homes. Vic juggles all of this with style and grace while raising a teenager and continuing to grow her brands. Check out the Private Suite Collection here: www.privatesuitecollection.com
