Chastity Garner and CeCe Olisa are asked everyday about their level of confidence, from fashion to building their own business, and how they get the confidence to do what they do. Each week, CeCe and Chastity will explore what it takes to be confident, over cocktails.
I don’t know about you, but it can be hard for me to get motivated and it can be even harder for me to STAY motivated!
So, I’m really proud of myself for staying motivated and consistent for this long. I feel a strong love towards myself for making a commitment and sticking to it. I’m also feeling stronger and better after my health scare last year.
Last week, I built my outfits around my Easy Spirit slip-on flats. This way, when I had a lunch meeting on the lower east side followed by an appointment across town in SoHo I comfortably walked the 1.5 miles from one engagement to the other.
I wear a lot of dresses during the summer, so when my friends at SimplyBe told me about their new dress campaign I was super excited to see what they had to offer. I was torn between two looks and

I can confidently say that my hair is flourishing right now. I started my sisterlocks in 2014 and one of the ways that I keep my hair healthy and growing is taking good care of my scalp.
I love shopping for luxury beauty items on Ebay because sometimes you can find items that are unexpected or even unavailable in regular department stores. Most of the items I want are available with the “Buy it Now” feature so I don’t have to bid on anything.
