Sixteen years ago!! Family is a diverse word and The Bernie Mac Show depicted it in real Bernie Mac fashion!! We celebrate black love and black families because #blacklovematters Tell us what your family looks like! #ourlovestories #representationmatters

I used to think matte eye makeup was for boring wet blankets and adults. I was wrong. I was so so wrong! This has become my go-to eye makeup now! .

🔪🔪🔪BE RESILIENT 🔪🔪🔪 I have to remind myself almost everyday to not give up and not quit on my fighting for my ideals and more representation of the black woman in the world media and fashion.
Yes there is a clear lack of diversity still to this day and that makes me so pissed off you have no idea.
I have been frustrated for a very long time and my way to fight back has been to create my own branding and shine on my own platforms.
I have given interviews in the past where I preferred not focusing on the negatives and where I have refused to play the angry black woman who states that we have less opportunities.
I refuse to be a stereotype and my page emphasizes my Parisian and multi-cultural upbringing that makes me who I am.
Change must prevail as all voices matter. Modeling lingerie in the way that I do it, helps me affirming myself and taking control.
I refuse to be passive and wait! That’s why I make shit happen.
Just a friendly reminder. 📸 @heidicalvert_photo

In case you missed it. @Regranned from @creativesoulphoto - I can’t even begin to tell you how many OMG moments we’ve had this week. This week has definitely been a game changer for our company. It is so cool to see our work and the beautiful kids we’ve photographed being celebrated across the globe. Just this past week we’ve been contacted by ModernMet, Yahoo, TheDailyMail UK, Buzzfeed, Glamour Brasil, Vanity Fair Italy, BET, TheRoot, BoredPanda, AJ+, NowHer and a host of others to do features on our AfroArt series. And to top it off celebrities such as Common, Tia Mowry and Morris Chestnut helped to spread the word even more. To say we’re shocked would be an understatement but most of all thankful/grateful that the world is able to see the beauty in these girls that we’ve seen all along. This journey has not been easy to say the least, but we’ve kept grinding and stayed focus on our passion regardless of the opinions of others. When we started on this journey we were constantly told that “the mainstream” kids fashion magazines wouldn’t want to feature our work because it’s “too ethnic”. I was also told that I was crazy for leaving my “comfy” corporate job for this “hobby”. We kept pushing and this year decided to aim higher. It’s amazing to see our efforts pay off since the days of shooting out of our own garage. We are going to continue to push this even further and continue to reach new heights. Our girls deserve to be celebrated, not hidden and we will continue to do so for as long as possible. Finally, I just wanted to give a shout out to the team around us that has made it possible for us to get to where we are today. Lachanda for helping us to take our art to the next level on hair and putting up with our crazy travel adventures. Kiki for being a visionary and pushing the limits on wardrobe. Sherita , Maraz, and Jada for holding us down on hair/makeup when we’re at home and for always having our backs when needed. Inger for being our front line cheerleader, and keeping us halfway sane on a daily basis. RoseMarie for getting us into places I never thought was possible, AJ for being the greatest assistant ever and of course my mom for pitching in.

The first quarter of 2018 is 🔥🔥🔥 January - The Chi

March - A Wrinkle In Time

Excuse me while I swoon from excitement ✨🙌🏾✨ #representationmatters #blackfilmmakers #newera

These stellar twists we're done by my husband which was wonderful because I've been sidelined with respiratory issues for the past week. I'm thankful he was able to step in but the lead up to these amazing twists were years in the making. .

Okay, I know what you're going to say, "It doesn't take years to learn twists!"
Yes. You are correct, this is absolutely true. What took years was including him in the regimen process in such a way that he could take over without my direction, suggestion or influence. .

Here's the thing, he doesn't actively enjoy doing our daughter's hair but he knows how important it is for her to love and embrace her heritage and that means making this process a family affair. .

Here's how you start getting your partner to build interest and eventual skill level:

1) show them what you're doing and why

2) ask them to take on simple tasks like sectioning the hair or giving a scalp massage

3) begin delegating simple achievable tasks, with plenty of thank yous and complements ( even if they can't do yet exactly like you)

4) encourage your partner to create a special ritual with your child around a particular task that's just for them (my husband and daughter watch MLP during detangling) .

I'm thinking of ways to make this process easier for families. Swipe to view a sample fill-in Hair Guide I'm developing. Tell me if this is something you could use and what you would like me to include in it. What information would be on here to help you guide your partner in helping with your child's hair? I'll post the finished product when it's done so you can download it. .

Drop an emoji if this something you could use to communicate hair instructions with your partner.

Yaaaas friends, here is all the #mondaymotivation you need right there. This incredible bunch of people came together over the weekend. If this is not the definition of #squadgoals I do not know what is. It looks like the most life-giving album cover. ⠀

On a serious note, it reinforces the power of networks and how important these are. All of the people we love repping the best of what the diaspora has to offer including peeps like: ⠀

@Luvvie - author of 'I Am Judging You', speaker and she has the funniest blog on the internet. ⠀
@BadassBoz - the true definition of badass and Chief Brand Officer at @Uber
@YvonneOrji - the lawyer we love in @InsecureHBO and creator of upcoming @FirstGenShow (cannot wait) ⠀
@budgenista - killing it when it comes to financial education in the American context ⠀
@opalayo - strategist, writer and co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter
@jessomatt - founder of Uncharted Power and Chair of Harlem Tech Fund ⠀
@thefunamentals - Director and Producer of @WaitingforHassana
@justeenahoh (I think she is at Apple/iTunes but not 100% sure) ⠀
@abiolaoke - CEO and founder of @okayafrica
@jubril8 - marketer ⠀
@willjawando - candidate for Montgomery County Council, strategist & lawyer. ⠀
@africanchophouse - purveyor of yumminess ⠀ ⠀
Hope that inspires you and have a great week x J ⠀

It is VERY important for your child to see themselves in books, magazines, TV, etc. Get books with characters that look like them, let them watch shows with characters that look like them, get toys with features that match their own. I can't stress this enough. There is damage that will be done when a child grows up never seeing themselves and especially in a positive light. I try to surround my babies with black TV shows, books, toys, etc. I don't ever want them feeling like their hair needs to be straighter or their skin needs to be lighter. #RepresentationMatters

In order to bring awareness of the presence of @blackheroesmatter, I asked @figurethisin3d to take some pics of me in their shirt. Simple as that. I could do the batch upload and have you all #SwipeLeft but nah.... some of these need individual attention simply #ForTheCulture. www.blackheroesmatter.biz

#Mood On #StayFocused....I am off until next Tuesday, but there is still more to do. Just because you accomplished one #goal, there is always another one is in the waiting room. "The law cannot do it for us. We must do it for ourselves. Women in this country must become revolutionaries." #ShirleyChisholm, the first #blackwoman elected to the US Congress, in 1968. Four years later, she became the first major-party black candidate to make a bid for the U.S. presidency. 🙌🏽🙌🏾🙌🏿 #ChisaPennixBrown #RepresentationMatters #BGWNOW #WomenMatter #LadyBizness #90DayFocus Bit.ly/90DayFocusBook

Working on some more character designs. What schemes do you think these two are plotting?

Book two of "Black Sun: The Longest Night" is now available. Download a free preview today. See link in the bio for more information. http://bit.ly/2mn33qm

E hoje, no dia da consciência negra, gostaríamos de salientar a força da representatividade. 
Se sentir representado, seja por um brinquedo, um artista, um político ou uma história permite-nos sonhar, crescer e criar um mar de possibilidades para as nossas vidas, assim como nos ajuda a entender quem somos, visíveis e notáveis dentro de uma sociedade e nos sentir pertencentes do todo. Isso mostra a importância, principalmente na infância, da diversidade: dos tons de pele, dos muitos tipos de cabelo, do gênero, da sexualidade e da igualdade.
Quebremos a ditadura dos padrões e reforssemos todas as lindas diferenças espalhadas por/entre nós.
20 de novembro, dia da consciência negra.
