Our Founder is conscious brand Ajaie Alaie's muse of the month! Priscilla sat down with Daniella Samper, the designer and creative director of the Brooklyn-based brand, to chat about consciousness, motherhood (introducing her daughter Olympia!) and entrepreneurship. This interview and short film is part of Ajaie Alaie's #chakradressing project showcasing conscious women using daily activities, such as cooking, reading, dancing, lip singing, singing, painting, to undress their mind from anything and everything and stay grounded. Priscilla shares her steps into creating a work-life balance while walking us through her energy flow, meditative state, and energy cleanse.

Full interview below.
Though I grew up without a biological mother, there was never a shortage of supportive women around me. They were aunties, cousins, grandmothers, and overall caregivers who were exceptionally strong. They had entrepreneurial spirits, ran their own businesses, set high standards and provided for their families and communities. That same foundation has impacted my relationships with the women I consider my closest friends and the women that I look up to. I’ve noticed that while they may come from different backgrounds and cultures, the women in my life all share an ability to see beyond themselves and work for positive change.
From the Women’s March to the #metoo campaign to Time's Person of the Year, 2017 has been a reminder that women are more determined than ever to be heard and seen—no matter the obstacles. In that spirit, we've decided to shed the light on some profiles we admire. We've picked a handful of our favorite gifts created by women who are speaking up and standing out. From books to beauty products to the very best suitcase in the world, each item on our list is created by a badass woman we love, perfect for one you love.
