Hey beauties, its your girl Maui! I don’t know about you but I love social media (especially Instagram). Aside from the fact that it contributes to my coinage (and y’all know your girl loves those coins), social media provides me with the opportunity to connect with women from different walks of life and collect gems that encourage me to do all kinds of #QueenShit.
Like always, this week I spent a lot of time (more than I should have) on social media. However, it wasn’t time wasted because as usual, I found plenty of dopeness and inspiration. I live for a good quote; one that inspires, empowers or makes a bold bad ass statement. If that quote comes from a woman…that just sweetens the pot for me.
Everyday, no matter my mood I share an uplifting photo or quote; some come from me, some come from celebrities and others are things that I have found on social media. It seems as though women empowering women has become a trend, and I couldn’t be happier. Women encouraging other women while showing the world how amazing we really are–I am totally here for that, and you should be too!
In the event that you are not as into social media as I am, I decided to share a few I loved this week. Check the hashtags and follow these ladies for more empowerment…FOR US BY US (LOL! Shout out to FUBU).

2. A woman who knows her worth is priceless!
#KnowYourWorth /// Sometimes this philosophy is upheld in one aspect of our lives, but not in others. The goal is to make sure we aren’t settling in any aspect of our lives. A photo posted by Megan Kimberling (@megmodels) on
3. SCARED MONEY DON’T MAKE NO MONEY! Never allow fear to make a fool of you.
|| L I V E • Y O U R • L I F E || “Life is risk. Live your life free of fear and the old-fashioned beliefs that bind your pocketbook, checkbook, bankbook and balance. Financial risk is a necessity, if you want financial independence. The sooner you get comfortable with risk, the sooner you’ll find success.” #goals #actions and not just #words You gotta work for that shit tho! #fear will hinder you whole damn life and you ain’t here for that! #free your mind #queenshit #queen #ferrissmason #life #abundance #abundancemindset

11. If what you want doesn’t exist…CREATE IT!
12. Just so you know I practice what I preach…
Good Morning Beautiful People! There are a lot of women who wear the confidence mask when the truth is they are lacking. They can’t look past society’s beauty standards and the negative perception of themselves because they have bought into it. Ladies, I challenge you to get to know yourself for your self. Stop looking at yourself through those stained or broken glasses. Learn to love yourself and your truth because you can’t promote in the world what you can’t evoke in yourself. #PHATGirlFresh #morningmotivation #Queenshit #plusisequal #curvyconfidence A photo posted by Maui Bigelow (@phat_girl_fresh) on
Chime in ladies! What are some of your favorite quotes by women for women?
