7110

Join us for a special sit-down with returning self-love enthusiast and PMDD warrior, Deyjianna. This time, she's accompanied by a circle of women that she is closest too. Deyjia, Nakita, Kim, Shardae and "Honey" cuddle up on couches and giant bean bags with glasses of wine, surrounded by tall white candles. We start off with a Bucket of Questions about dealing with hormones and mental health through different stages in life. As the evening goes on, the conversation evolves into a deep dive of why we all deserve grace. I'm extremely grateful to be able to share this intimate peak into a sisterhood, friendships and beautiful relationships between black women.
