The top five reasons I became an entrepreneur were 1. Passion for better cultural representation and authenticity 2. To enrich lives and personal spaces 3. Philanthropy and wellness 4. To enhance black consumerism/marketing 5. Black travel and the health benefits of travel/leisure _ As #jamaica alerts the population that #scandalbags will be banned January 2019, many are confused as to what will be used. Black, plastic shopping bags or “scandal bags,” are a crucial part of everyday life in Jamaica and have been for decades. A household may go through 500 bags a year. The bag is used for everything from groceries to bagging up your food from the cook shop, then later recycled into garbage bags. While versatile, the bag continues to cause environmental issues. _ In an effort to aid those lacking resources, At Her Leisure is seeking to partner to donate our Jamaica reusable shopping bag. Tag an organization and let’s continue with the initiative to #nuhduttyupjamaica. Everyone deserves time to live, travel, wander and take care of Mother Nature . . . #recycle #environment #travelaccessories #blacktravel #blackhealth #representationmatters #blacktravelista #securethebag #travel #buymelanin #loveandrespect #blackandwelltraveled #blackandabroad #blackexcellence #passport #traveling #travelandlife #travellove #travelpassion #travelbag

Because your trip to Portland 🇯🇲isn’t complete if you didn’t; 1. Rub mud on your face on Monkey island 2. Catch a big wave 🌊 3. See wha gwan a nature @chronixxmusic _ Depending upon where you are on the island, every journey is a long drive. We (my husband and I) love to wander so we’re the perfect match.

I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t {fill in the blank} #commentbelow _ There aren’t enough love stories today. At least not enough really GOOD love stories. Ones that explore different types of love, not just the romantic kind, as wonderful as that may be. That capture how weird and painful and powerful that can be. That end up with the woman either alone or coupled up-equally fulfilled either way. _ We all have something that makes us who we are. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t love-travel-wander and carry a great bag while I do it. . . . #love #selfcare #wellness #travel #blacktravel #positivethinking #happiness #entrepreneurmindset #girlboss #inspiration #blackgirlmagic #blackwomen #blacklove #motivated #positivity #goals #teamnatural #loveyourself #empoweringwomen #liveyourtruth #lawofattraction #trusttheprocess #worldtraveler #spiritual #soultravel #brand #luggage #carryon #blackandwelltraveled

Did you know... 55% of leisure travelers put thought into big trips, only taking 1-2 trips per year. _ 59% of travelers begin researching their next trip between one and three months before departure, while 38% of bookings are happening same day or up to two days before the activity. 😲 (This has only happened to me once and it was a GREAT deal.) _ BTW, Have you read the blog on finding your travel personality???

I travel for the juice! _ The last time I was in #atlanta, I was encouraging my cousin to visit several juice bars/ital dining spots. We had smoothies at Arden’s garden, a foot detox at Jutox and of course, my favorite, rice via Loving Hut. Today I discovered @majorgirl has opened her very own. _ Intrigued by the recipe, I made the starburst. No green juice tonight ☺️ . . . #pineapple #juicing #blackandwelltraveled #travel #supportblackbusiness #blackgirlmagic #blackhealth #wellness #vegan #ital #selfcare #wellness #traveller #travelandlife #travelandleisure #travelandfood #itravelforthejuice #travelwell #beach

I can never recall the exact day I decided to enter the #travelaccessories industry, but it was sometime in 2017. _ Looking back on the variety of #carryon bags and #luggage I would come across, it was a no brainer. I am a wanderer, forced road-warrior who spent 80% of my time in hotels for work. I’d catch 2-3 flights a week, almost every week. My immune system, skincare, and diet we’re all great because my mind was constantly working. We think better up in the air ☁️. _ #representationmatters !!! You have the freedom to #travel, and the beauty of that should be reflected. . . 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! . . #hardlyhome #unapologeticallyblack #meettheworld #travelgram #teamcarryon #soultravel #travelwithme #afroart #blacklove #selflove #accessoriesforher #accessories #accessorieshandmade #blacktravelfeed #traveler #travelbag #adventurethatislife #trip #worldtraveler #womeninbusiness #welltraveled #vacationmode #blackgirlmagic #blacktravelmovement #blacktravelfeed

Do you have a special item you carry with you EVERY time you travel? _ You probably can’t tell in this photo but I was pretty miserable. I was coming to terms with some very confusing matters of the heart when a co-worker invited me to wander in Philadelphia for the weekend. _ Coming across this hat was like a scene in Little Shop of Horrors 🎶 Da-doo, I was walkin' in the wholesale flower district that day Shoop da-doo, and I passed by this place where this old Chinese woman Chang da-doo sells beautiful and exotic clothing, Snip da-doo, 'cause she knows, you see, that travelers frequent here, looking for something special. _ And while it didn’t go exactly like that, I was just about to, ya know, walk on by. And while there was no eclipse of the sun, this hat was just sitting right there. _ Since May 2015, it goes everywhere I go. This hat helped hide me when I felt out in the open, wearing my emotions on my forehead. It carries an even stronger energy now; one of #confidence, #selflove and serious #wanderlust. . . . #travelandlife #justdoit #girlboss #atherleisure #worldtravel #consciousness #journey #entrepreneurship #fbf #wearetravelgirls #melanintravel #femmetravel #wanderlust #browngirlstravel #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsintheworld #peopleofcolor #blackowned #travelfly #travelstyle #passionpassport #blacktravelfeed #travelgram #travel #blacksuccess #blackcreatives

Travel with someone who let’s you #wander. It’s healthy ✔️ _ James Bond Beach in Oracabessa,Jamaica is a beach bar that also captures an amazing view of the sunset. It has a large lawn for concerts and events and this beautiful stretch where we were greeted by hundreds of butterflies. . . . . #travel #trip #orcabessa #travelandlife #atherleisure #travelandleisure #ladiesgoneglobal #livewithpurpose #worldtravel #needtogetaway #culture #consciousness #health #selfcare #healthylifestyle #qualitytime #travelaccessories #represent #happiness #travelbag #goals #nomadness #hardlyhome #jamaica #blackgirlstravel #funfacts #selfcare #blackandwelltraveled #blackhealth #tbt

Maya Angelou said, I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. _ I agree with the first two and a full moon. Also don’t downplay my crystals, smack while you eat or recommend whack restaurants. I can tell a lot about you by your tastebuds 👀. . . #travel #wellness #selfcare #vacation #blackexcellence #blacktravel #blackandabroad #flight #traveling #wanderlust #travelandlife #vacationmode #mood #buymelanin #blackgirlmagic #womeninbusiness #femaleentrepreneur #theblacktourist #motivation #weekend #blackheath #wisewords #lawofattraction #consciousness #connection #fullmoon #crystals #foodie #energy

I just wanna talk to y’all ... So the plan was to go live, discuss a little #travelscience , health and #leisure but the way the mosquitoes were congregating 😩. (#jamaica don’t treat me like this when we return). _ Being in the house has everyone sneezing and with itchy throats so we headed to the conservatory for a good dose of better breathing. _ If there’s anything I can answer in the meantime, feel free to shoot me an email (link in bio). . . . #blackandproud #travel #blacktravel #blacktravelmovement #afrocentric #afrolove #blacksuccess #blackcreatives #afroculture #melaninqueen #africanaccessories #blackgirlmagic #honestmotherhood #blackhealth #traveller #motherhood #travelandleisure #manifest #consciousness #mompreneur #workingmom #afropolitan #femaleentrepreneur #goddess #mindfulness

Yes! She cooks...Since it’s lunch time for the CST/EST folk, I thought I’d share a few fun facts for the foodies! Having traveled for work, life and #leisure, you eat, WELL. This is an essential to being #blackandwelltraveled. From cookies in Recife, Brazil, soup in Jamaica and arroz in Puerto Rico, I’m here for all the greatness of the #caribbean and #africandiaspora! _ 🍚 Rice dishes are my FAVORITE. Anywhere I #travel, I’m ordering rice. I have my preferences but we’ll dive into that another time. 🥤 If you’re late to the juice game you should definitely catch up. I’m not talking Jamba Juice, we’re speaking life to all the street vendors squeezing lemons, limes, pomegranate and shops blending those veggies to help you stay hydrated and packed with nutrients. I drink juice everyday now for my health and If I’ve finished the pitcher, I’ll eat what would have been in my cocktail. 🌶 Finally, what we have here is brown stew chicken. Spicy and stewed to greatness. My husband would cook for me all while courting and dating so it’s our love language when we put on the pot. While I’m primarily #plantbased, I will eat with him when I make dishes; just for taste. I can’t wait until the cookbooks drop from @chefahki and @originalflava_ . . #blackgirlmagic #honestmotherhood #brownstewchicken #foodporn #culture #vegan #ital #blackhealth #healthylifestyle #juicing #nyam #blackandabroad #selflove #travelandlife #wanderlust #jamaicanfood #jamaicanstyle #cookup #foodie #brunch #wellness #becauseilovetocook #caribbeanfood #travelandfood

Do you recall movies from your childhood where the male character was often depicted going “backpacking” in some remote destination? SOLO? _ Well, I’m not surprised having all grown up that women are the number one #solotravelers . In fact 72 percent of American women are taking solo journeys, and ranked first in frequent solo #travel. American women are also most likely to take three trips or more in a given year. _ Does this sound like you? Where have you traveled this year? ✈️ . . . #travelgram #blacktravelmovement #travelandlife #travelandleisure #traveldeeper #femmetravel #travelaccessories #travelbag #blackandabroad #blackandwelltraveled #blacktravel #blacktravelista #mytravelcrush #theblacktourist #consciousness #afrocaribbean #melaninfashion #browngirlbeauty #representationmatters #wearetravelgirls #melaninfashion #solotravel #blackandproud #afrocentric #blacksuccess #blackexcellence

There’s a conscious war going on... _ So much has happened in the past week from Serena to shootings in Dallas to Senate hearings. It’s deplorable and can be disheartening to exist in the same atmosphere where so much negativity takes place. That’s where self-care and travel come in. Make the effort to visit a spa, make that doctors appointment or drive to see family/friends. Whatever your spirit needs to survive in turbulence, feed it. . . . #travel #serenawilliams #dallas #trip #leisure #travelandlife #atherleisure #travelandleisure #ladiesgoneglobal #livewithpurpose #worldtravel #needtogetaway #consciousness #health #selfcare #healthylifestyle #qualitytime #travelaccessories #represent #happiness #travelbag #goals #girlstrip #nomadness #hardlyhome #jamaica #blackgirlstravel #selfcare #blackandwelltraveled #blackhealth #lawofattraction

Venture for you... _ Have you ever felt like you needed to do something. That you should or could be doing xyz? A voice inside your head or gut feeling is prompting you to take action? That’s what travel is for me. It’s my natural, holistic, ital remedy because we definitely can’t call it a secret. _ Despite what people may have to say about how you spend your money, time or anything else belonging to you, a change in environment is healthy for all endeavors. You never know what you can find when you’re not looking for it. Being in the clouds and always on the open road for work and leisure helped me to visualize and manifest not only my brand, but my life. Being at the right place and right time only helps the divine and powers of the universe reach you. . . #travel #wellness #selfcare #selfworth #vacation #blackexcellence #blacktravel #blackandabroad #flight #traveling #wanderlust #travelandlife #vacationmode #mood #buymelanin #blackgirlmagic #womeninbusiness #femaleentrepreneur #theblacktourist #motivation #weekend #blackheath #wisewords #lawofattraction #consciousness #dreaminblack #connection #fullmoon
