November's Black Owned Business of the Month is Black owned plus size clothing brand, Sante Grace! I chatted with owner and designer, Tracy Christian, about the challenges she has overcome since launching Sante Grace last year at the height of the pandemic and how she basically created her own blueprint for quality, designer-inspired plus size clothing. FULL SHOWNOTES HERE
As you'll hear Tracy mention, one of the biggest pitfalls of the fashion industry is that it is inherently designed to make women feel less than, as if there's some part of their body that they need to fix in order to be able to rock the latest trend. But one of the amazing things that sets Sante Grace apart, is that Tracy creates beautiful clothing to make you feel good RIGHT NOW, not after Spanx, and not 5-10 pounds from now. I was so inspired by my chat with Tracy and I know you will be too. Enjoy!

You may already by familiar with Tracy Christian. Based in Los Angles, California, she runs a successful licensed talent agent, TCA Mgmt, and her past clients include Octavia Spencer, Mo'Nique, and Elizabeth Moss. As you can imagine, Tracy's career requires her to dress up fairly often. When Tracy repeatedly ran into issues finding stylish, elegant plus size pieces, she would often go directly to her seamstress to have a piece created for herself. She decided to do that on a larger scale, and Sante Grace was born.
As a whole, the fashion industry tends to fail plus size women who want quality, sustainable clothing. Sante Grace supplies that need with beautifully crafted styles that go to 4X. Tracy pieces are inspired by her own life and her favorite designers and they're designed with a unique and appreciative understanding of the female plus size body.

It's a "very special episode" of TRIBE Culture LIFE this month! (And, if you get that reference, you're my people!) In honor of Valentine's Day this month, I decided to chat with Cassandra T. Le about dating abroad, falling in love, and maintaining your sense of community while living and working abroad. We started the episode off with a little background on Cassandra's decision to move to Spain and it was so much fun hearing about that process firsthand. Moving across the world is no easy feat, and Cassandra's adventurous spirit and willingness to step out of her comfort zone are what drew me to her story in the first place. I'm almost certain those traits helped set the scene for her to meet and fall in love with her partner. Are you looking for love abroad? Or maybe just intrigued by Cassandra's story? Listen as we chat about her journey so far and the beautiful life she lives with her partner in Málaga, Spain. Pin It For Later! IN THIS EPISODE, WE DISCUSS Cassandra's background as a Vietnamese American living and working outside of DCThe culture-shock of relocating from a large, diverse metro area to a small town in SpainWhat it was like to integrate into a completely foreign cultureFinding love abroadDating and communicating with a language barrierWhere to settle? Spain vs. the U.S.Mixing the best parts of Spanish and Vietnamese cultureHow Cassandra and her partner have managed to build community and maintain relationships while working remotely Interested in dating abroad?

Premier Episode! I'm super excited to share my very first episode with you guys! The Tribe Culture Life podcast has been a loooong time coming, and it's the perfect vehicle to share even MORE Black and POC stories and voices with you. So, where does the name Tribe Culture Life come from? It's simple: if you're ready to hear even more perspectives on cultural issues that matter to our community, you're my people and you're definitely my tribe! As you may know, I started All Day Britney earlier this Summer as a way to share my story and encourage others to share theirs. Here, I write about everything that interests me, from my adventures raising my babies to style advice and reviews of the Black owned businesses that I patronize as often as I can. Originally, my YouTube channel was where the "other Black and POC voices part came in". I have so enjoyed chatting with my guests and getting to know them and their stories. That segment seems to be pretty popular with you guys too! But, it occurred to me that my chat sessions might be much easier to consume in podcast form, since you listen to those while you're doing... well, just about anything else. And so, Tribe Culture Life was born! I've got some great guests lined up for you over the next few weeks so I hope you'll join me and engage! Feel free to leave comments here, or wherever you happen to catch an episode (Spotify, iTunes, ...
In today's episode, I discuss finding yourself as a mom and giving yourself permission to pursue your passions outside of motherhood with Allyson A. Robinson with the Hey Girl, It's Allyson podcast. This episode was super important; as parents, we're always trying to find that balance between being present for our babies while also honoring our own interests and pursuits. Do you struggle with work life balance? Or maybe you're like me, a SAHM trying to balance mom life while also making time for the activities that make you happy and whole. If any of this sounds familiar, I think you'll really enjoy today's episode! FULL SHOWNOTES HERE Pin It For Later! If you follow my blog or have connected with me on any of my socials, you may notice I've been a little quiet lately. One of the reasons I was so excited to share this episode is because I'm LITERALLY living this life as we speak. At the beginning of this year, I had so many plans and goals for the blog and this podcast, and it's been difficult reconciling everything that I want to accomplish with homeschool and the process of raising the kids in general. Hubs, of course, is a huge help, but mom guilt is so real, ya'll! I went back and listened to my chat with Allyson a few nights ago, and as I was taking notes, there were so many little gems that I felt I could apply to my life right now. In the episode, you'll hear me ...
