Our Editor-in-Chief's life is totally on fleek. 

"My EIC Life" is a dose of marvelous musings straight from ESSENCE's editor-in-chief, Vanessa K. DeLuca. It's your glimpse into her oh-so-fabulous life, which is filled with amazing people, awesome must-haves and endless inspiration. 

Serious swag alert:  My curves + NYDJ denim = a perfect fit! Thanks to our Digital Fashion and Beauty Director Julee Wilson for introducing me to my new favorite jeans.

Favorite midday escape: Watching the Essence team on Facebook Live. This week I loved our digital team spill the tea, um, lemonade about Bey’s "LEMONADE" and give life lessons on love and marriage gave me LIFE!



ICYMI: Tuesday was Michelle Obama’s College Signing Day, which gave me an excuse to go digging in the crates for some of my old college mementos. 

Need a good read? Here are two books that came across my desk. These ladies are all about empowering Black women to be their best and be recognized for the queens we truly are. You’re welcome! 

Prince Forever: I found a ticket and a program from my first Prince concert -- plus some other treasures. Still not over it :o(

D.C. Confidential: I'm going to the White House Correspondents Dinner, hosted by The Nightly Show’s Larry Wilmore and the last one for the Obamas (heavy sighs), on Saturday night. Can’t decide whether to wear short or long, sparkly or understated. And can’t afford to buy something new so I’m shopping my closet. What do you guys think I should wear?

Tell me which one you love in the commets section below!
