So elated to be invited this past week to a beautiful dinner hosted by @andreltalley for the amazing @torloweiofficial. And a special thanks to @taa_pr for bringing together a well-rounded crowd. The conversation was educational on so many levels for me—definitely a night that I won’t forget. ✨✨See more from my night in Stories II 📸 @oscarlandon
Born in Oklahoma and raised in Arkansas, Candace Marie Stewart decided to make the leap to NYC six years ago and pursue a career in fashion. While she has worked for some phenomenal companies (the list includes Vogue, Barneys, People, and Essence), she is most proud of her eclectic online magazine MarieMAG.com.
"I started Marie Mag as a medium to inspire and encourage women to pursue their dreams wholeheartedly. I try to be as transparent as possible when I write. I want other women to know that at times life will be hard but we are a strong force that can overcome anything. Essentially, our struggle is our strength."
'I take care of myself first through peace and quiet. My place is a haven for me when I just need to be still. The city can be overwhelmingly noisy and busy so blocking out that outside noise is essential on a daily basis. I also nurture myself through prayer, meditation and thinking positive thoughts and by surrounding myself with people who uplift me.
