Where do I begin?!….. Great energy is a remedy. One that is filling and contagious. That’s just what was awaiting when you entered a beautiful intimate SoHo cafe who’s back steps led you to a secret garden.
Was born from a conversation with Monroe where she mentioned she had been itching to do an event. After much brainstorming , discussing purpose, back and forth texts #SteeleVain; An intimate brunch celebrating Unapologetic trailblazing women” was born. Just off of our intentions alone and the name, my heart was already full. Monroe’s consistent, hard working and trailblazing spirit was confirmation that this collaboration was the right move.
I was seated amongst Women I’ve followed for years and never met, ones that I knew and some I met for the first time.. So good! We spoke our goals out loud and into existence followed by cheers and “Amen!”, *finger snaps* and head nodding smiles. Who said you need to know folks in order to celebrate them?! Child bye.The food kept rolling in. Every time I looked up I was greeted with a “Would you like to try…..?” I got fancy and got a Matcha Latte. Standing ovation for the pastries though(especially the pistachio covered one ). Finger licking good that not even a midriff cut out jumpsuit could interfere. #greedy
Celebrating these women motivated me to work on some of my procrastinating to do list. To do more videos, to travel more, to pitch and pretty much kill shit because why the heck not?!I could have cried probably twice because of the vibes but the way my thug-ness and my half ass smokey eye is set up right….. 😂This brunch further proves that celebrating others is good for the soul. It leaves no time for pity parties or second guessing. It shakes and sits us right up into our own blessings and purpose.There is no competing when we are all Dope.
