The Black Hipster is a lifestyle and mindfulness blog. My goal is to help black and brown Millennial and Gen-x readers incorporate yoga and mediation into their daily lives by sharing my personal stories, tips and tutorials, all while building a #melanatedqueen community. My belief is that by living a mindful life we live our most authentic life and that my friends, is a beautiful life!
The Black Hipster will cover a range of topics from yoga and meditation, healthy eating, home and mommyhood, with a sprinkle of travel and entertainment!
Additionally, I have a variety of blogger buddies who will be popping in occasionally to share content on a variety of topics.
A Little About Me
Hey again! My name is Krysten, a.k.a The Black Hipster. My self-proclaimed moniker after years of growing up melaned in midwestern suburbia, begging my mother for equal parts Hollister, Co. and BabyPhat jeans I found my place in society.
I finally gained my black card, and my degree in Education, at the most prestigious HBCU ever, THE Prairie View A&M University, met the love (headache) of my life Jerry, and almost a decade later we’re married and expecting our first baby (Halloween 2020)!
After 3 years in the classroom, and even more, after-work margaritas, I decided to take my talents to law school. I graduated with my J.D. in May of 2020 and will be sitting for the Feb. 2021 Bar Exam (thanks to Baby Love) where, speaking it into existence, I will pass on the first attempt and reach my final form, ESQUIRE.
But until then, I will enjoy becoming a yoga instructor, being a freelance writer/editor and social media manager, and learning how to be a mommy! In my free time, (did you read my first sentence? ha I have plenty free time, anywho), I love falling asleep with my kindle on my face, burning my tongue on hot tea and coffee, and binging historical remedies on Netflix and hulu.
