Why you’re a QUINKENZO Fly Mommie…
Mamie is undeniably FLY! She’s DOPE! She’s coooooold! All of the above. When I think of her I always try to guess…Is she SuperWoman or WonderWoman today…or both? Y’all who know her know what I mean! What makes her fly is her fearless approach to life and living it with intention, focus, drive, commitment and passion. And she’s gotta be one of the sexiest mommie athletes I know. Not only is she stunning, her heart is even more beautiful and filled with the gracious gift of giving. She’s smart, strong, funny, inspiring mixed with a touch of bad ass which I love. Her funky style sense is bananas and effortless and I just about want every damn thing in her closet! She’s so fly and such an inspiration because she approaches everything in her life, whether it’s her career, raising her daughter, her hobbies turned passions or her wardrobe in the same way…with a fierce conviction all while putting that “Mamie” stamp on it. Now that’s Fly!
