@afro.tech did not disappoint! My favorite part of the conference? The people. Everyone’s energy is on another level and it’s the time when you can connect with other blerds (Black nerds) like you. I loved connecting with old friends, meeting new friends & making new memories. Congrats to the @blavity & AfroTech team on bringing the community together again! ———
I left feeling full & ready to continue this journey —> this is a marathon, not a sprint. ✨
I’m so grateful for the opportunity to share the story of building Textures & Hues. Moral of our story: get clear and concise on your idea, take in lots of customer feedback & the get to building! 👊🏾
I look forward to a great conference next year in Oakland! #afrotech#afrotech18#womenwholead#blackgirlmagic#blackboyjoy#girlboss#womenintech#diversityintech#Amazon#amazonxafrotech

Look at the stars. How they shine for meeeeeee. Oh how they shine for meeeeeee. Twirl. Flow. Be. Exist. In your BEING comes your calling, your thoughts, your pull, your destiny, your “what am I supposed to do with my life.” Mindfulness creates the space to think, to listen, and I know, and to find peace. It is when we listen that we know where to go. Duh, right? But not so duh says the gal who can’t stop going and doing and fighting and war-ing and conquering and flighting and adrenaline rushing. I was addicted to my adrenaline rush, my cause for movement in the face of common disasters, my cause for living.
I lived to flee. I lived only to flee. I lived for my next adrenaline rush in the form of fixing, processing, and rescuing. But I was called to LIFE. And life is not well lived while running away from any monster I could find. Living is truly knowing thyself, and in that knowing and be-ing and existing comes your doing. #being#existing#knowing#knowthyself#bedontjustexist
It's crazy that just 1 short week ago, I was in a dark place, facing some serious seasonal depression and fast forward to today, where I feel grateful for fighting for my happiness. Dancing has been such an amazing way to boost my mood instantaneously and I'm super grateful to dance in a safe place where I feel empowered every minute of the way. .
Thank you @angela_mahoneyjones for creating such a beautiful environment where I can dig deep and be my happiest, sexiest, and most vulnerable self. The work you do is amazing. .
And thank you @atma_things for giving me that boost I needed to get back into my flow of things. Also, thank you to my sweet friends and family who helped me push through that tough time (you know who you are 😘). I love you guys to the moon and back. 💕💕💕 .
Whether it’s been a day, a week, or longer... you can ALWAYS choose to start anew. It doesn’t have to wait until the start if a new week, month or year. It starts with a decision to say ENOUGH! - Enough procrastination - Enough saying one day - Enough not prioritizing yourself and what you want.
It’s not selfish... it’s investing in yourself so that you can give your best to those you love.
If you want financial freedom, you can have it. If you want a healthy lifestyle, you can make it. If you want to build a brand and create your dream life... choose to START!! Are you ready to take the first step? 💗

“No te enamores de una mujer que lee, de una mujer que siente demasiado, de una mujer que escribe...
No te enamores de una mujer culta, maga, delirante, loca.
No te enamores de una mujer que piensa, que sabe lo que sabe y además sabe volar; una mujer segura de sí misma.
No te enamores de una mujer que se ríe o llora haciendo el amor, que sabe convertir en espíritu su carne; y mucho menos que ame la poesía (esas son las más peligrosas), o que quede media hora contemplando una pintura y no sepa vivir sin la música.
No te enamores de una mujer a la que le interese la política y que se rebelde y manifieste un inmenso horror por las injusticias. Una a la que le gusten los juegos de fútbol y de pelota y no le guste para nada ver televisión. Ni de una mujer que es bella sin importar las características de su cara y de su cuerpo.
No te enamores de una mujer intensa, lúdica y lúcida e irreverente.
No quieras enamorarte de una mujer así. Por qué cuando te enamoras d Euán mujer como esa, se quede ella contigo o no, te ame ella o no, de ella, de una mujer así, JAMÁS se regresa”. -Martha Rivero Garrido 💓

Let that creative energy flow! 🌊
I'm just writing, writing, writing, Warriors. I'm being brave and I'm putting it ALL out on the line this week! Leap and the universe will catch you. Big things coming!
When your fall photo craze dies down...but you jump immediately (and admittedly, fearfully!) into the biggest launch (really, the FIRST typical launch!) your business has seen! The timing isn’t perfect... but nothing about small business ownership is, you know?
I’m SO excited to share what I have been working on the past YEAR with you (literally... it was filmed when I was 9.5 months pregnant...). It changed my business and I believe it can yours. The details are coming SUPER soon... .
In the mean time I want to give a quick shout out to all of you who are a bit scared of sharing big things. Because that is me right now, and the last few weeks (months?) as I have been working on this... it is so hard to create something you think can really HELP and then just throw it into the universe hoping people get to see the value of it!!! So to all of you boss babes doing this too... cheers to you, sister!! The best we can do is go for it and see what happens, right? Here’s to knowing we’ve got something good to share, and sharing it whether it is 1 or 1000 listening because it is worth it JUST for that one.

I am goofy. I am silly. I am fun. I am funny! .
Today I did my arm workout in my purple fuzzy socks. Why you may ask? Because it’s cold outside, but also because one of my favorite traits is the ability to make things fun and to make people laugh!
Mel's Mom has a message for you! 😉 Did you catch EP 25 yet? If so, leave a ❤️

“P” for Priddle of course! Many thanks to my very dear friend, Taylor for my first signet ring in my family’s name. It is breathtaking! My family is super important to me, and I hope to achieve my goals not only for my own personal happiness and freedom, but also to support them and their dreams! When I need a reminder of why I’m going down this uncertain but exciting new path, I’ll just look at this lovely piece of art and think of them. Check out Taylor’s jewelry on her Instagram @larkwoodrose if you are interested in beautiful, unique handmade jewelry. Thank you again, Taylor!
Personally I'd go for a cookie about now 🍪
When things are really hard I like to remind myself that someday I will be able to tell the story at some party or event. Laugh about it with friends maybe... "remember when..." Like when I broke my arm. Terrible at the time, great story now.

The only thing standing between who you’ve been up until this very moment and the person you dream of being is one very simple decision and only YOU have the power to make it ✨🌙 The most powerful thing you can do for yourself is to look at your fears in the eyes, see them for what they truly are and tell them they don’t control you anymore.
Tonight, i came face to face with my little fear monster and told her I had to leave her behind because there wasn’t space for her where I was going 👋🏼💕 I’ve always had a vision in my head of who i wanted to be and I’ve always felt like that version of myself was so unattainable because I was scared that if I was someone other than the person I’ve been until now, people would judge me 🙈♥️ Give yourself permission, right now, to be that person and see the shifts that start to take place when you allow yourself to be truly authentically you!
This is NOT the face I have when I receive not-so-great feedback😅HA. While yes, I do think feedback that isn’t always praise is helpful and necessary for growth, I can’t say I seek it out with open arms😅🤦🏼♀️(honestly, does anyone?) 😬but I am LEARNING. Here are a few of my thoughts based on my own experiences of mess ups.🤷🏼♀️If you are a human reading this and know that feeling where your stomach drops and your body temperature rises to an uncomfortable temperature because you know YOU slipped up, this blog post is for you. So essentially all imperfect humans. So yes- you.😉 Link in bio😘
