What brings you fulfillment? What brings you peace? How do you decide how to spend your time and share your space? I think about this a lot, even more as I start to move in a more intentional way of self-healing to care for myself both physically and mentally. This year’s theme for A Chic Social was planned with great intention, to protect the overall mission of this community, to give those in attendance a day of relaxation and peace, and to create a positive vibe that allowed you to socialize and attract a common energy. I can say in this third year I am so full from seeing how this community continues to grow. I am full with happiness from the love and support. I am blessed for the relationships, the old faces, and the new that commit their time to meet new women, listen to their stories, share their perspectives, and just enjoy great fellowship.
A Chic Social is the most fulfilling passion project of mine. I created this space and community during a moment of getting back to me and learning to be vulnerable in finding support and like-minded women that wanted that as well. Every year, I seek support from women that inspire me and align with the experience and have motivating stories that I believe should be shared.
Thank you Kyla, for sharing your journey of living beyond your pain and inspiring others who have health challenges (known and unknown) that there is positive healing through the challenge.
Thank you Nya for setting the tone and energy so we were able to take a mental break, set intentions and move our bodies at our own speed. Dedicating your lifestyle to serving and helping others in some form or fashion while intertwining your passion for fulfillment that creates your own balance is bold and courageous.
Thank you Milan, for sharing your craft and intention behind your brand and promoting good health and a healthier lifestyle within our communities. Moreover, being authentic and true on how you are still discovering the balance and acknowledging making time to breath like we did in our yoga flow is important.
During this conversation I took note to many topics we could uncover deeper; the ability to have access, our identity and how it influences how we operate, and how we move and navigate our days with positive purpose. I am looking forward to continuing these discussions.
The energy in the room was warm. I loved seeing how you all connected, exchanged laughs and stories. I hope you were able to take something home that really made you feel good inside, whether it was a moment, or something from our amazing Beauty + Wellness vendors: Lipp Beauty, Laws of Nature Cosmetics, Candid Tea and Cyntherapy.
Now I ask, have you all started your Spring skin regimen? Did you put on the right amount of sunscreen on today? Thank you Nia for that amazing demo, be sure to keep up with her awesome tips and content on the Well Kept Beauty app.
