A Letter from Lauren Maillian, March Curator:
As a proud Black woman, I am so honored to be able to share some of my secrets that keep me happy, healthy, empowered and motivated with you in my GeenieBox! I am an entrepreneur, mother, friend, investor, advisor, best-selling author, and media personality, (whew! I got exhausted just writing that all out!). I wear many hats in business, and in life, and I know all too well how hard it can be to feel like we are winning in all areas most of the time. But this is what modern day success and happiness, looks like for us women. We want it all and we are willing to work for it. Personally, my hardest struggle has been figuring out the best way for me to support myself — finding the things that keep me grounded and relaxed, recharged and motivated amid the noise.
That’s exactly where the #BlackGirlMagic comes into play — we find a way to do it all with grace and style and poise. I have curated this GeenieBox with items that I use and enjoy daily, weekly or that are a large part of my life, and, as a result, a large part of who I am and how I have gotten to where I am today. I’ve curated this month’s box to give you a glimpse into the experience of what makes me, and my approach to life, so unapologetically confident and strong.
I hope you enjoy this curation for the modern day woman redefining her path to having it all - please let me know what you think and share your experience with me on social @LaurenMaillian. Continue to thrive and shine bright.
