I hope you all had a good weekend! I made my resolution for 2018! I'm putting my personal happiness before everyone else. As a women I naturally I want to care for others but I have to care for myself more delicately so I can give more of my best self to others and to my husband. That's right me first before career, friends, husband, money, whatever if Ellen + Randall from (This is Us) had a baby they would make 2018 Frances ! #love #selfcare #weathering
We're back in Detroit, this time for a gathering of #blackgirlmagic #detroit #colorofchange #blackjoy #blackwomensbrunch @colorofchange thank you!
Recently start following us? Here are some fast facts: We're been around for 2+ years. We wanted a space that centered Black Joy and Black women DJs and didn't see it so we created it. Read our mission over at πŸ‘‰πŸΎwww.thepartynoire.com. We've been recognized as Chicago's Best Dance Party for two years in a row and have curated and hosted parties in Chicago, Detroit, and NYC. We're throwing another LIT New Year's Eve party at The Promontory! Have you gotten your tickets yet? #LinkInBio ▫️▫️▫️ Photo: RJ Eldridge ( @rj.eldridge)

This made my heart burst! πŸ’–πŸŒŸ Tag them! Remember the words we speak to and onto our children become their inner voices as they grow. It is easier to love and protect the child, than it is to repair the broken adult. And in protecting the child, let’s work together to build a better future and world for them to inherit- a world far far more equal and just. x #thechildrenarethefuture #future #legacy #youaresobeautiful #black #melanin #daddyduties #bond #goodfathersmatter #protectthem #blacklivesmatter #blackfamily #blackmen #blackbabies #cutie #blackjoy #blackdreamsmatter #blacklove #love #blackisbeautiful #paternalbond #accapella #family #adorable #joy #singing #lullaby #hope #dreams #freedom

So let me express the level of super dopeness @nocommissionofficial was during @artbasel weekend in Miami. @therealswizzz has created a platform for artists to break free from the traditional and thrive successfully. Much gratitude to everyone at @thedeancollection. Every performing artist that got on stage was supreme! Thanks @liltunechi @asaprocky @bustarhymes @hairweavekiller for making the night forever memorable. β€’ β€’ β€’ #iamroemelloe #chicagonative #addmorearts #addmoredrama #creativegenius #miamiartweek #artblogger #artdealer #artcurator #urbanleaders #chicagoblogger #blackjoy #miamiart #blackcrowns #soulbasel #talentmanager #urbankings #newlevel #supportlocalart #thedeancollection #nocommission #wynwoodart #wynwoodmiami #walkingart #roemelloe

I really needed a good celebration. Y’all, Deon and Shaquita showed the hell out with this beautiful wedding. The Black Joy infusion was so critical and necessary. I have so much gratitude for this weekend and all of the beautiful energies in the space. #adventuresofdands #foreverlove #blackjoy #blackexcellence
#Morning #Affirmation Yyour life, but your life is far more complex than a single relationship or event. Understanding the essence of forgiveness is one of the most liberating gifts you can give to yourself. It is a mystical, not logical, command that releases you from a position of entitled anger or hurt. When you forgive you will find yourself unearthed from keeping a constant vigil over your wounds and instead regain feeling in your heart. And when you allow this, you exchange the part of you that is defined by a hurt for the part of you that keeps healing. ------------------------------------------- Image credit: @alex_elle ------------------------------------------- #BlacktotheFuture #KeepSoulAlive #ArtHeals #BLM #BlackJoy #BlackMagic #Harlem #BlackArt #Afrofuturist #NewPlays #BlackTheatre #BlackLivesMatter #Theatre #Presentpulse
