I’m a planner by nature. As a child, I would construct "To-do lists” at the beginning of each day to ensure I accomplished my daily goals. I carried this habit into my adult life and built a career predicated on my superior organizational skills and knack for detail. As a Project Manager and avid journaling enthusiast, I often found myself collecting an array of stationery and organizational tools. However, I became increasingly frustrated as it was challenging to find items reflecting my personality, lifestyle, and worldview. I wanted to see myself represented in the products I purchased. For this reason, I decided to design a unique and chic collection of stationery and office accessories for purpose-driven women like me. Black women deserve to see ourselves reflected in the products we use every day.
I believe planning is a form of self-care. The more we integrate goal-setting and productivity into our daily lives, the more our future selves will thank us. True growth and transformation begins with our small (seemingly insignificant) daily actions. Writing in a journal, praying more, practicing mindfulness, creating a daily routine, purifying the atmosphere of our home, and creating room for intentionality and success.
When we combine these small rituals with consistency over a steady amount of time, real change occurs… and just like that… we’re taking control of our environment rather than our environment controlling us. That’s how we manifest our purpose in life!
Just as we take care of our physical bodies to enhance our quality of life, I believe it's equally important to improve the aesthetic of our workspace to encourage creativity, efficiency, and productivity. You will love seeing little glimmers of you in all that you do!
