WHAT DOES AGRLCANMAC MEAN?

AGrlCanMAC means A Grl Can M.old A.NYTHING to C.reate her reality. She's a fly girl who's mind is her playground and is aware that she possesses the knowledge and mastery of the power of her thoughts. She uses anything to mold and shape her realities to what she wants them to be. She sees setbacks as perceptions and adjusts her mindset to view obstacles and challenges as opportunities for growth. She finds beauty and inspiration all around her and is an intuitive thinker, open minded, a stylista in her own right, passionate, driven, and humble. A Grl Can that can MAC understands that her life's purpose is to have fun and further expand love. She receives love, gives love, creates different kinds of love (think shoes, starting or cherishing family, running that marathon or a plane ride across the globe) and is an expansion of love.


THE VISION

AGrlCanMAC's vision is of an environment where women of color are celebrated, uplifted and kickin butt every minute, second and millisecond of each day. Competition and envy don't exist because every woman knows the truth: that she is a boss in her own right and everyone's shine complements the other in the same room or shines just as bright alone. What's for each of us, as individual women, is for us and we live in abundance. We live intuitively fabulous lives in a modern world and call on both Eastern and Western medicine to take our own and our families' health and wellness seriously. We meditate with candles lit while Tupac plays softly in the background. We rock our highly textured hair in a multitude of styles and lengths and emblazon our lips with confidence and an absence of fear. We carry the manuscript of our book inside of our tote bag that was handcrafted by women artisans in Ethiopia while eating organic, grass fed hamburgers or vegan, chickpea burgers at salon style gatherings with our girlfriends. We want all of us to win and see ALL women of color as multi-dimensional, worthy and capable. We are on the fast track to healthy and whole lives so we can help and heal the world. In our lens, our magic is limitless and AGrlCanMAC fosters and encourages an attitude of flyness and fearlessness so we can all rise up together. Who run the world?

ABOUT ME



Hi, my name is Milan Staples and I am the founder and editor-in-chief of AGrlCanMAC, thank you for visiting! I am a New York City based writer, artist and holistically fly beauty and wellness enthusiast with a passion for adventure and most importantly, living a full and balanced life. I'm somewhere between a minimalist and a maximist and am a self proclaimed accessories junkie with an overactive imagination and a zest for life. I describe myself as positive, spiritual, fun, driven and creative.

I am a proud introvert and but still imagine myself as Where in the World is Carmen San Diego kinda woman. Though I really enjoy my own company, I crave learning and expansion and enjoy being out and about, meeting new people and trying new things. I have a quiet strength that often intimidated me but it challenges me to learn and master it. You can find me just about anywhere reading a book or journaling, traveling the world with adventures on the horizon, in the kitchen cooking to Little Brother or The Foreign Exchange jams or out and about with my girlfriends enjoying life.
