So excited about my collab with The Homegirl Box

The amazing ladies at the Homegirl Box reached out to me for a collab and I couldnt say no! It’s by women of color, with all woman created goods, in a seasonal box. And this one is the Cardi B box. You know I’m a regular degular schmegular girl from the Bronx, too, so this speaks to me. My contribution is my popular Galaxy Princess print (available at shopzahirakelly.com). The box drops tomorrrow! Check out info and details at TheHomegirlBox.com. Be sure to cop yours! 

This weekend will be a celebration of Afrolatinas…
