Devenne, Creative Yogi
with the current situation at hand. Many things could go south. With that being said, creatives will always expressively curate a platform. For the positive and most certainly for the culture. Devenne is one of those women taking the trajectory of her talents to new heights. Along with managing the daily operations at Heal Haus. I caught up with the jersey girl while I was catching up with her boo thang Jose. How convenient! We caught up on the vision for her new series and who’s really whipping it up on the stove.
WHAT’S YOUR MORNING ROUTINE
So far it’s waking up before mans, getting some pointless instagram scrolling in, drinking some tea, taking my various elixirs/holistic health tings (definitely not a type), then working on whatever projects I got for the day. Right now I’ve been working hard on getting my new Instagram Live Series, “TalkBack” together. It’s me and friends talking about topics that matter to us. In the past I’ve tried to avoid getting pigeonholed on social media, so I would avoid being on the record with things I’m passionate about. But quarantine is really pushing the creativity out of me, forcing me outside of my comfort zone really; I don’t really feel like being quiet right now.
WHERE’S YOUR FAVORITE SPOT TO WORK AT
Definitely the living room. It’s got the most natural light and windows. I feel like I can breathe better in open spaces.
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING
Mostly all of man’s clothes. Occasionally my own Nike swag. Usually really unattractive sweats that aren’t cute, but mad comfy regardless. Some athleisure bs, here and there too.
WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING, LISTENING TO OR READING
Been reading Bell Hooks “All About Love”. I was going really hard initially, it’s hard for me to engage in scholarly works if I’m not in the right headspace. I can be a little all over the place, and this is something I really want to sit with and consume, so I’ll only engage it when I’m ready. Otherwise, listening to my “Buttah” playlist I made awhile back, it features Kendrick, Badu, Jill Scott, Yasiin Bey…makes me feel productive and chill simultaneously.
WHAT’S YOUR GO TO MEAL
Maaaad cereal. I honestly eat like a rabbit, mad snacks throughout the day, but I’m way less into meals. My boyfriend is really into cooking and food in general, so it’s been funny to watch how we approach it differently. I eat to sustain, he’s eating to enjoy.
WHAT HAVE YOU BOUGHT ONLINE
Literally nothing besides some shit for my ungrateful cat.
