Katryna Starks, Lifestyle Editor
Tracey Brown Tate, Style and Beauty Editor is more than mildly obsessed with dream creams, perfecting potions, and red lipstick. She is a 25 year beauty industry veteran — makeup artist, esthetician, copywriter, editor, blogger, product expert and basic product junkie — who loves waxing poetic over the perfect bronzer as much as she does actually wearing it. Her mission is to broaden the horizons of all Sisters to embrace their ubiquitous beauty — inside and out.

Ebonie-Marché Joneswas raised on the island of Antigua, and currently resides in New York City.  She holds a Masters Degree in Criminal Justice from John Jay College, and has a passion for motivating her sister-girls.She believes in the power of support.  She also believes that it is impossible for faith and worry to co-exist.Ebonie embraced this perspective when, during a valley experience, she discovered an abundance of blessings.  She realized she had the support of awesome sister-friends, strength to persevere, and a desire to encourage, inspire and motivate others.  Her most precious lessons:  The direction of life is dependent on choices not on circumstances.    The past does not predict the future.  God’s ability to provide is unaffected by outside factors.Her passion is to motivate each woman to cultivate a forgiving heart that quickly releases the past, a strong mind equipped to conquer and survive any challenge, and safe spaces that offer support and encouragement.

Your shoes are pretty, but I don’t know what it took for you to get them. I’ll compliment you and keep it moving. The same should apply for you – compliment your sister’s shoes and keep it moving! No competition necessary… ROCK YOUR SHOES WITH CONFIDENCE ON YOUR PRE-DESTINED PATH! Nobody else can do what you’re supposed to do like you! Believe that!”
