Project Description

The goal for Mocha Lifestyle is to cultivate an online community for women of color where we can go and find recommendations for Local and Online businesses that truly cater to us.

Mocha Lifestyle

There were multiple moments that I found myself wishing there was one place to get feedback from other women who looked like me about the various life choices I make on a daily… where to eat…where to get my locs started and maintained, finding a new pediatrician for my daughter and so on.

Utilizing multiple online directories and apps to aid my search was time consuming; especially combing through numerous reviews to find someone’s experience that matched my expectations. All that I really wanted was to go to one place and receive a good girlfriend-to-girlfriend recommendation.

Mocha Lifestyle

Mocha Lifestyle was founded on the principle of the collective. That together we can leverage our voices, our experiences, and our recommendations to help out another woman of color, while at the same time provide a platform that spotlights local and online businesses that unapologetically celebrates us and respects our buying power.

Businesses listed on MochaLifestyle.com are not strictly Black-owned, Latina-owned, Asian-owned, Women-owned, etc. However, business owners have the option to designate themselves as such within their profile. But that’s why it’s so important to me to have a member of the Mocha Lifestyle community (who we call Mocha VIPS) recommend that business. It’s not just about if the food was good, it’s how did they treat you? Do they value our business?

My name is Mystique and it has always been instilled in me that it wasn't enough to merely pursue my passion solely for my own personal gain, but that my life's work was tied directly to my purpose. For me, championing the causes that impact others is one of the driving forces that fuels me to keep conquering new territory in which to utilize my entrepreneurial gifts.

Having my daughter Milan at age 40 was such a blessing and she easily became my greatest super power. She motivated me to set a positive example for her, to plant seeds of service, and to celebrate self-love, acceptance and the power of community. I knew she would be watching me and I wanted her to see herself in every aspect of the enterprise that I am building.

Milan has been by my side for every leg of this journey and I am excited for her to witness Mocha Lifestyle grow along with her.
