Finding the perfect pair of jeans is like finding a soulmate. They hug your hips. Accentuate a smaller waist. Stretch perfectly with a few extra pounds. Having at least one pair of amazing denim is a staple for any closet, and Myleik swears by the power of her favorite AG Jeans.
“Never in my life have a I found perfect denim until I started wearing this brand. It seems like these are specifically made for girls with curves. I have tons of colors and you can wash them 250 times and they look just like they did on the first day.”

This week’s My Life comes in the form of empowerment. Being a successful, driven woman is still a bit of a mystery to our patriarchal society. And what do people do with the unknown? They judge, criticize and crucify. Like many of us, Myleik has dipped her toe into the Sheryl Sandberg pool – the Facebook COO and author of the wildly popular book “Lean In.” Women all across the nation have taken on Sandberg as a mentor of sorts. She’s a woman who understands that we’re constantly chipping away at the concrete wedge between femininity and power.
“I first learned of the book through Oprah’s interview with Sandberg in this month’s “O” magazine. The interview really hit me and “Lean In” quickly crept to the top of my book list. Read More…
Myleik’s home is the essence of “the business.” Gorgeous fixtures. Chic white furniture. Solid gold toilets. We’re kidding about that last one, but she’s definitely mastered the look of having a home that you’d never want to leave. She shared a few of her favorite home goods sites to help you add a splash of cool to your space. Read More…

This week’s MY Life muse: Killer Quotes
We’re a generation of knowledge-seekers, especially on days when it’s hard to get your genius out of bed. In the 140 character world we live in, quotes from prolific authors, artists and philosophers can be the intellectual pick me up you need. Myleik swears by them, along with other bold but catchy sayings. The truth doesn’t hurt, it heals.
“You probably wouldn’t believe me if I told you how often these little quotes come to my mind. That’s probably because I often read quotes for a quick burst of encouragement. I started the whole #MyTaughtYou thing when my friend @tregoham started doing some posts last year and hash tagging them with #TreTaughtYou. Now this was forever ago when I had only a few friends on Instagram and he has since stopped, but I still have so much fun doing them.”
Here are Myleik’s rules for her quotes: Read More…

This week’s My Life muse: Top gadgets
“I never thought I was really a “gadget” girl until someone asked me to do an interview about my favorite gadgets. These are some of my fave things! My newest toy is the MacBook Air. I travel so much, I needed something functional that fits in my purse. This is the ANSWER! Once you get used to the small screen (I have the 11 inch) nothing can stop you.”
Being a successful millennial requires that you step up your technology game. Short of being able to send her hologram to events, Myleik has a gadget that does everything possible. For the ambitious, these gadgets lessen the time spent on certain tasks and allow you to feel like you have a team of ten, when it’s really just you. Check out some of Myleik’s favorites that were originally published on Inhershoesblog.com. Read More…

This week’s My Life muse: Scented Candles
“I have a work ritual that includes waking up each morning, starting my coffee and lighting a candle on my desk. I ALWAYS have to have a candle lit to work. Over the years, I’ve discovered some really amazing candles and there’s something about the aroma filling my office and bringing a little bit of peace to my often hectic days. I also use candles as a way to have a bit of luxury. When I couldn’t afford to do something over the top, I’d splurge on a really wonderful candle.” – Myleik
Myleik is right. Candles instantly jet you off to a tropical island, woodsy escape or delicious pastry shop. The aromatherapy aspect can also change your mood and better your health. Have we convinced you to go stock up yet? Check out some of Myleik’s absolute favs.
1. Up top is an Aspen Bey Candle in Fire.
“This is one of my fave kitchen candles. I can leave this lit all weekend long for a fresh smell around my house.”

This week’s My Life muse: Myleik at SXSW
Myleik is a jet-setting curly girl who’s heading to SXSW, an annual music, film and interactive festival in Austin, TX. Our awesome creator will be featured on the “Naturally Social” panel with Afrobella, Franchesca Ramsey and more.
“The BEST part about having this job is being able to get out and talk to people! Anyone will tell you that I’m very chatty (not annoyingly chatty), but I love to exchange with people. I love hearing your story and how you’ve overcome challenges – it’s how I stay motivated each day. I know that we’re all pushing toward our goals and when I’m having one of those days (we all have them), I think about all of the people that I’ve met on my journey and remember that I’m not alone! Now on to this … SXSW! Can you believe it?! I’m going to be hanging out with my curlfriends and I’m going to give you a little heads up on my topic. I’ll be talking “the power of Instagram” and giving tips to grow your following. You don’t want to miss this!” – Myleik

This week’s My Life muse: Bathing Suits
“I recently went to Miami and it’s all about the bathing suit! I was so happy with my selections and I invite you to try these brands. Remember that the bigger the bottom, the smaller the suit! Don’t be afraid to try daring cuts, they actually make you look smaller! Go for bright colors and remember … SUMMER BODIES are made in the WINTER! Get busy! ” – Myleik Read More…
