You’re on the gram holding money to your ear. There’s a disconnect. We don’t call that money over here.
Posted up with my fellow boss girls; still feeling the love from last week’s @theccnyc #CultureCon filled with nonstop inspiration and woke AF motivation. Thanks for the inclusion in the feature @essence #CreativeAF

Don’t mind me, I’m just in my lane. Everything in life is easier when you don’t concern yourself with what everybody else is doing.🚶🏾‍♀️🚶🏾‍♀️ #KélaVie
I sat in a conference room at @complex earlier this week and talked about the importance of collaboration over competition. I’d be remised if I didn’t put action behind my words so in an effort to do so I’m sharing some of the dope women I met at the event who you should follow and be aware of:
1️⃣ @yves_saphlaurent because, JUST BECAUSE. We connected on the phone before she moderated the Salon Talk and the first thing she said to me is “ I’m a fan of black women” or something to that nature and I was like YES! you’re dope.lets be friends then I met her and she was just as warm and genuine as I could imagine. She’s also a boss in the making. You gon’ wish you knew her when SO FOLLOW HER
2️⃣ @thefourtress_ I was just as giddy to meet them as they were when they shared their excitement over a recent comment I left on their IG. This is only 2/4 the #girlgang which consist of four roommates navigating life together andcreating some really cool content along the way. Talk about collaboration over competition. They are the epitome of that. Follow them and get ready to be inspired to level up.
3️⃣ @sadeaspence a journalist on the rise. She’s always so supportive and engaging when I see her. Thanks girly. It’s always love and never competition. 🙌🏾😘
4️⃣ @baedates (not pictured) If you know me, you know I love a good cheeky name and when the founder of Baedates broke it down for me I was all 😍😍. She’s creating some really cool content about love and ways to rock out with bae. There’s even some cool stuff there for those that are BAEless 🙋🏽. It’s kinda genius. I totally wish I had thought of it first.
5️⃣ @xoxodayo a graphic designer who is as sweet as can BE! She made the promo for the event which
I loved. I can’t wait to collaborate with her ASAP.
6️⃣And last but not least follow @sistersinmedia because DUH they’re representing for all of us, making sure there’s a space where we feel supported and encouraged. This industry is HARD but something like this helps to navigate things a little easier.
They’re just a few dope women I met at the event. Let’s follow them and give more of US some love to show and prove collaboration and community win over competition

Happy Friday Kuties
You can find me somewhere in between inspiring others, working on myself, dodging negativity and slaying my goals. #KélaVie
Unbeknownst to anyone Ive been wanting to do something with @Complex for a while now so when @sistersinmedia asked me to do this month’s Salon Talk at the headquarters of the media giant it was a no brainer. And boy did we talk, discussing everything from career and wellness to social media and social issue? It was good. It was real. And it was inspiring, not just for anyone taking notes but also for me who was humbled to even be heard. I can’t say thank you enough.
Somebody text me when real bodies come back in style. In the meantime I’ll be over here putting in the work with @robertbrace.
Speaking of which shout out to everyone that came out to #SlayForLife yesterday at @athletanyc. (Peep my Insta) Y’all the real MVP’s. 🏆. I loved meeting new Slayers and seeing a few returning faves. If you missed it but still want to get your slay on, we have a new line up of classes happening to help you jumpstart the new year (10 weeks before 2018) Visit slayforlife.com and start working on a new you now. #KélaVie #WellnessWednesday #WorkoutWednesday
Nah baby, my ears broke, Imma need you to show me.

Channeling #RosalindBrewer for a little midday pick me up to help power through this slow day.
Y’all, I’m still relishing in this win for us. No I'm not a soror but she’s a sister no less and as the first AA women to hold the position of President and COO of @Starbucks she’s raising the bar for women world wide. If that ain’t monumental inspiration and motivation, IDK what is #KélaVie. Combine that with the fact that today’s lip color is the new “HBIC” gloss from @thelipbar )
(really, that’s the name) and I should be able to win the rest of my day. Every little bit helps. #KélaVie

Fall decided to come hard this week but IDC, I’m still going bold and crop topping.
I packed away most of summer clothes with the exception of a few pieces here and there, like crop tops. These @spanx #armtights by @sarablakely make it easy to get away with the look while also adding a great pop of color. 💙
Grab a pair at Spanx.com. If you’ve tried them I’d love to hear your thoughts. Holla.

I don’t really have a dope caption. I just love how my marble nails blend in with this marble table top + I loved that lil flower and the lighting was 👌🏾so 📷. We always take advantage of good lighting.

Anybody else still trying to hold on to Sunday 🙋🏽? I weekend’d so hard yesterday and today. 🙌🏾. It feels like it was just Friday a few minutes ago. 😫 I’m so not ready to Monday yet. Sunday, can you please not go?

At #CultureCon someone asked me about the imposter syndrome which I’d never heard of or at least never knew there was a name for. Apparently it is the inability to internalize your accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud”. I’mma tell you like I told her, know that any place you are invited to, whether it’s professional or personal, you belong there. It doesn’t matter how successful & qualified everyone else in the room is. If you’re in the room, you’re just as successful and qualified. The conference featured leading entrepreneurs and dope AF creatives like @officialspikelee , @laurenmaillian, @bereolaesque & @thenotoriouskia to name a few. I could have easily shriveled in insecurity but nah, I was invited to be there. I’m worthy. And so are you. Know that. OWN THAT. Ain’t no imposter syndrome around here.

#CultureCon was beyond amazing today, connecting with so many like minded creative individuals & entrepreneurs. Huge thank you to @theccnyc for having me a part of their Genius Talk. It was dope AF. I can’t believe this was their first time doing the event. It was so good y’all!! There was so much insight and encouragement to be your best creative self. One that really resonated with me: ”make the choices that will lead you to the life you want to live” 🙌🏾🙌🏾 Duly NOTED!!
Love this welcome to #CultureCon @theccnyc. The energy and vibe here is so creative and dope AF. I got to interact with some pretty dope folks during the Genius Talk surrounding Women @ Work. Currently waiting to hear Spike Lee’s keynote.
When you roll out of bed and roll straight into spin class. Ain’t no hair, ain’t no makeup. That’s how you know it’s for real and not for show. #KélaVie
Would love for you all to roll out and workout with me this Tuesday, to raise funds for Puerto Rico and kick off the new fall edition of @s.l.a.y.forlife. Any takers? Link in bio.
You can’t take no L’s off me.
#KélaVie
I say that in the most humble way but best believe when I win, the whole team is winning too. Ain’t no loss around here.
