Our platform is centered around beauty, culture, living, enjoying and being in a leisurely and luxe existence, as women. Especially, for Black women, we are mostly always the ones that bear the brunt of a dual Black existence and can be left silenced when our husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, uncles, cousins, partners and friends are senselessly taken from us. We are left to grieve, to still be strong and move on without any relief from the consistent racist turmoil this country places on us, on a daily bases. From micro-aggressions to blatant assault, violence and death all through the veil of racism.

We’re creating a platform of realistic escape, relatable stories, leisurely luxe and evolving versions of solace as well as, excellence. Our foundation is YOU and as we continue to build out our mode and shape our existence in the world of publishing, media and beyond; the needs of our community as well as, ourselves will always come first. Being fully engaged and aware of the current rebellion of our people means finding some moments of solace and escape in the midst of our rage is evermore important. We’d like to start this immediate moment of transition with a Instagram post from Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who took to painting a beautiful portrait of #GeorgeFloyd a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin and a friend. We say your name and will continue to fight for your and our humanity, and the rightful justice in your murder along with so many others whom it deserves. #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor #JusticeForAhmaudArbery are not just names but were beautiful Black Human Beings.✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽
