Did I loc my husbands hair using the Mielle, Honey and Ginger, flexible hold edge gel. I SURE DID!!! I came home with a bag of goodies from #themoniquerodriguezlaunch and it was love at first smell. As those who wear locs prefer natural and organic products, this was a no brainer. Containing aloe, honey, lavender wax, castor oil, ginger and a blend of essential oils, this hair session was a delight. I sectioned the hair, palm rolled the gel, and locked the hair. A little goes a long way. Love your natural hair and get the best results anywhere in the world.

We hate to see you leave, but we love to send you packing 😘. . Did you know that people of color spend up to $50 billion on travel annually within the U.S. alone! Despite not being considered for mainstream marketing for travel and tourism, we have a huge share in the market! If you're a partner with airlines, hotels and excursion/tour companies, you should be speaking towards seeing your reflection in travel ads. Representation matters. . At Her Leisure recognizes the beauty of people of color through original design and cultural representation for travel accessories so that you can represent your culture anywhere in the world! . You have the freedom to travel, and the beauty of that should be reflected. . . . #hardlyhome #unapologeticallyblack #meettheworld

The number one job in America is held by a man who doesn’t understand people 🤷🏾‍♀️ . At Her Leisure has teamed up with @naturalhairweekly to educate and empower people of color, removing the negative connotations with Afro-hair. People with textured hair find it hard to seek images that positively reflect their self image in everyday life. Additionally we understand the difficulties in seeking stylists when traveling and working abroad. Having a global reach in Africa, the Caribbean and Europe, NHW works in the natural hair space to help you love your natural hair and get the best results, anywhere in the world. We are synonymous with improving self-love and well-being, naturally. . . . #blacktravelista #blackwomen #girlboss #healing #femaleentrepreneur #goaldigger #bossbabe #confidence #naturalbeauty #naturalhairstyles #naturalhairrocks #naturalhairdaily #melaninbloggers #naturalhairweekly #atherleisure #blackisbeautiful #traveldeeper

A Saturday well spent! There’s nothing more phenomenal than a room full of supportive women ✊🏾 I find that when your brand sets a tone, your clients and audience are aligned. It was nice to be in the midst of likeminded individuals. Those seeking knowledge, processes, collaborations and fulfillment. It’s definitely hard to pour into yourself by yourself ALL of time, and while I didn’t meet everyone in the room, the interactions I did have were like a days worth of sunshine. We all need sunshine. Additionally, everyone loved my bag.

I have had the opportunity to be challenged. To work with people in different contexts, to meet people in different countries, different cultures. And I love that. I really love that! • I met up with my heart in the other side of the world. I participated in two study abroad trips, first to China, then Brazil which fueled my passion in creating At Her Leisure. I’m here for making lasting memories through travel, offering the tools and resources to create powerful memories and connections with your world. . . . #blackandabroad #blacktravel #blacktravelista #hardlyhome #travelphotography #unapologeticallyblack #fortheculture #afrohair #naturalhair #nature #blacktravel #respect #representationmatters #travelstyle #travelbag #travelaccessories #travelandlife #travelandleisure #peopleofcolor #happiness #femaleentrepreneur #bossbabe #goaldigger #womeninbusiness #melanin #woke #consciousness #caribbean #blackexcellence #blackgirlmagic

Tell me, what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? 🌱 People of color around the world are being unapologetically Black. They are being cultured, proud, educated, free, celebratory and at the center of it all is happiness. Will you maintain this blackness throughout your entire days? . When am I headed to the movies? 🤔 And I can bet I can’t fit anything of my Ankara wardrobe🤰🏽Thank goodness for accessories!

Orcabess! . My husband and I got married like we were headed out for a date. We made several trips the morning of. Many involved rounding up much friend dem, dropping them off to the spot. Meanwhile my natural hair continued to draw up. I went to get dressed, got zipped up by Miss Colleen, jumped in the truck and head down the rocky road. This was my view. It was a perfect day. . . . #photography #blacklove #nostalgia #fbf #positivevibes #life #orcabessa #blackmarriage #love #jamaica #beach #wild #melanin #peace #blacklove #naturalhair #blackgirlstravel #travel #love #caribbean #powercouple #greatness #success #oceanview #aftertheaisle #beautiful #gratitude #happiness #femaleentrepreneur #beachwedding

I wish you wellness and that you ground yourself in Love.Travel.Wander _ The journey is commendable. This woman of color is living her dreams in one of the happiest places on earth. What's even more beautiful is that she is serving other POC who seek to align their consciousness and well-being. . . . . #community #energy #confidence #peace #vibratehigher #spiritual #goddess #tribe #blacklove #blackwomen #mindfulness #meditation

I wish you wellness. • I’m not surprised at the surge of energy, new beginnings and change surrounding this new moon. I am surprised that I didn’t know it was today. _ I haven’t been able to go live and in-depth after the loss of a friend last year. We met on Periscope and when she came over to IG she always felt close. She gave me confidence. I miss her and I know she didn’t want me to lose my voice or my way, so I found it again yesterday. _ I hope you were able to catch the live broadcast covering 3 tips to Combat Caribbean Homesickness. Watch it 👆🏽or check out the blog post on my website. Over the years, I’ve received many questions and compliments on how At her Leisure was established, and I not only find that I answer their initial question, but we’re able to discuss self-care, mental health and other issues that people of color face in their daily lives. Knowing my passion has helped others helps others to feel a little less alone is rewarding. . . . #blog #travelandlife #travelandlife #girlboss #life #love #leisure #lovetravelwander #atherleisure #worldtravel #wokelife #consciousness #healing #newmoon #community #energy #confidence #peace #vibratehigher

Beautiful girl, you are worthy of your dreams. You can do hard things. . I’m missing the sun on my back and winds whispering wander.

“I love my culture! I actually don’t use the term: afro/caribbean. There’s not one best thing about being Caribbean or African. The beautiful, warm land. The spirituality of the people. The people, themselves. The rich colors. The amazing, fresh food. The colorful music. The attitude. The way we walk, talk, move, sing...I could go on and on about being African/caribbean but that would take forever! I will say that one of the best things about being Haitian, is that I carry a little bit of it all. • There are so many things that define my culture. I love my rich history. I love knowing that my people fought for their freedom & won. Freedom means everything to me! • I think one of the biggest misconceptions of Afro-Caribbean culture is that the people are ignorant, uneducated. That the land and the people are poor. Everywhere African people are is beautiful! The people are smart, intelligent & super creative! I come from a family of nurses, doctors, mathematicians, artists, chefs, free thinkers...African people are resilient! I hope to change the way people see Haitian people, Jamaicans, Cubans, or people from other caribbean islands, or Africa, in continuing to spread my light & joy in all of my creative projects. By showing how rich my culture is...by standing tall & proud of my heritage. By speaking up for myself & for my people! “ _ Ludmilla Muse | Actor, Radio Personality, Author, Artist | Los Angeles by way of Haiti 🇭🇹 . . . . #womeninbusiness #represent #leadership #philanthropy #feature #culture #caribbean #afrocaribbean #haiti #haitian #heritage #peopleofcolor #africa #africandiaspora #femaleempowerment #inspiration #livewithpurpose #womensupportingwomen #freedom #travel #instatravel #instaeducation #westindies #islandgirl #islandgirlsrock #blackexcellence #roots #blackculture

Do you own a cross-body bag? • Cross-body bags are functional fashion accessories created for men and women. A cross-body bag remains secure, offering the wearer easy access to his or her items. • A cross-body bag looks great on ANYONE!!! Wear on the hip or swivel to the back.

I knew nothing major about graphic design when I first embarked on creating my brands. I purchased CC (creative cloud) and didn't touch it except to load it onto my laptop. I also knew nothing professionally about cards, my niche or how I would express myself verbally. 📄 _ I drew the island of Jamaica, as well as China, and a few other images that compelled me. I'd scan them and that's when the tears and frustration settled in. I had no clue what to do next. I'd ask for help from anyone I knew that possessed the expertise, but things weren't sticking. It was suggested I watch YouTube videos and such but again, people talking at me doesn't do me justice. 💻 _ Ultimately, I found in-person Adobe Illustrator classes, and weekend workshops ranging from $10-100 and I took them ALL. Additionally, a friends husband connected the missing pieces when I was unsure of next steps, accommodating my sporadic requests. I was diligent, persistent and keep fueling my passion. • You'll hear a lot of no's before you'll hear yes and quite frankly, it's a damn good sound. It's symbolic to a last breath. Don't exhaust life looking for assistance where there isn't any. Friends, family and resources will not always oblige, but the ocean is so much bigger than the unanswered DM's, emails and texts wading. Let it go just like a message in a bottle and don't worry about a thing. 🍃 . . . #behindthescenes #smallbusiness #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneur #atherleisure #youngwomen #professional #success #building #greatness #goals #brand #graphicdesign #illustration #design #passion #wokearoundtheworld #chitownblack

I've always been resourceful and a great deal goes on behind the scenes. _ In March of 2017, I attended a meeting discussing various programs within the city of Chicago. One of the presenters discussed a free, underutilized entrepreneur program offered through Bethel New Life in partnership with the Small Business Development Center.  I waited over 6 months to interview and receive an invitation to attend the next cohort. _ The facilitator was West Indian as well as an accountant in the room. Needless to say, they wanted to see me do well. I graduated with perfect attendance, a business plan, a network and a life-long team. I knew if I didn't seek discipline, that business plan and other criteria would not be in existence. _ Post graduation, On January 18th, I was one of two classmates invited to attend the Bethel and 1847 partnership announcement, seeking entrepreneurs in tech. If you're interested and in Chicago, please look into the opportunity. Not one to be missed. . . . #behindthescenes #smallbusiness #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneur #atherleisure #youngwomen #professional #success #building #greatness #goals #alumna
