Nights after my skincare routine be like... 💅🏾 || I’m legit obsessed with taking care of my skin, and one thing I’ve never done is completely swap out my go-to products for an entirely new regimen. For the next month, I’ll be using only @Olay products for their #Olay28Day challenge and sharing my results. At the end of my 28 days, I’ll be participating in an event during #NYFW alongside other dynamic women and none of us will be wearing a stitch of makeup. I’ll be using Daily Facials, Total Effects Moisturizer & Eyes Deep Eye Gel. Stay tuned! #olay #faceanything #sponsored

S W I P E • You’re only as good as the company you keep. That’s a fact. || Maybe I’ve just been incredibly fortunate, but my life is filled with a tribe of amazing women who inspire me by their greatness and make me want to do better. @artnsole is simply the dopest (& flyest). She’s my college bestie, my line sister, Dylan’s God mom, my confidant, and everything in between. She’s an educator who’s changing the lives of underprivileged kids through her work as a principal at a Washington, DC charter school. She’s also one of the most cultured humans I know. She’s an artist and art collector. Because of her, Dylan’s bedroom looks like an art gallery (mostly filled with pieces from black artists like @hebrubrantley ), as she’s made it her job to teach her more about the world through art. ——————————————————————————— That brings me to @docmils. Have you ever met someone who’s brilliant (like for real), but also super down to earth and exudes positivity in everything she does? That’s @docmils. After we graduated from Howard, she went to medical school, married her college sweetheart, had a baby, started her Anesthesiology residency, oh, and then had another baby! Did you hear that? A👏🏾BLACK👏🏾FEMALE👏🏾ANESTHESIOLOGIST👏🏾 This woman is saving lives. And she had not ONE but TWO kids while making it look easy. With her her husband, they are raising two powerful tiny humans. ——————————————————————————— It’s important that we celebrate our people doing amazing work to inspire our children. I’ve made it my mission to use my voice to show little brown girls who look like me that anything is possible. Thank you @Uber for your efforts to empower underrepresented voices through programs like Women of Uber, UberPride, UberHUE and more. It takes companies like yours to continue setting a new standard, by offering platforms for voices to be heard and a different point of view to society. #CelebrateYourTribe #Sponsored #WhereTo
So proud of my brilliant sister in beauty, @mahisha_dellinger ! When her team asked if I would host the premiere of her new show on @owntv , I didn’t think twice. Mahisha and I met many years ago, when she came to my office to show me @curls - her product line for natural curly hair. I’ve watched her brand take off, and I couldn’t be happier to celebrate a black woman trailblazing in the beauty industry. In “Mind Your Business With Mahisha,” she will be helping female entrepreneurs take their small businesses to the next level. The show premieres on OWN on 8/11. Please support this Queen! Thanks to everyone who came out on Thursday. ❤️ #latergram
Seattle raised me, Brooklyn blazed me || Love BK; it’s where I’ve lived my entire adult life, where I built my career, where I started my family. Thank you @Uber x @officialspikelee for creating a special project like #UberPresents : Da Republic of Brooklyn. It’s the perfect reminder that Brooklyn is the home of the hustler and unlimited opportunities. Check it out on UberPresents.com. #darepublicofbrooklyn #uberpresents #sponsored
Keeping that same weekend energy✌🏾🌴 @mondayswimwear
As someone who loves both rap and fitness, this was a dope project. @acehood is #fitnessgoals . I spent the day interviewing him for @reebok x @complex about how fitness is a part of his masterplan to live a longer, healthier life. He’s a real one. Link in bio. #Reebok #Flexweave #Promo
My sweet baby girl turned 2 today! 7/22/16 will forever be the happiest day of my life. You fill our hearts with so much joy everyday. We love you more than words can say. Happy Birthday, Dyl! 💕
Red Lips For Brown Girls Matter || @armanibeauty lip maestro in 405 looks good on a range of brown skin, from me to the gorgeous @nymatang (can we discuss her flawlessness for a moment?!). #armanibeauty #giorgioarmanipartner
You guys know I try and test every beauty product on the market and I’m always looking for formulas that work for women of color. @armanibeauty luminous silk has always been one of my favorite foundations, and they’ve now expanded their shade range with even darker tones. It’s perfect for anyone who likes a dewy, natural-looking finish. #armanibeauty #giorgioarmanipartner
