This Internet-Preneur Gives Us NYC Like We’ve Never Seen It Before
Some look to the weekend for a little R&R, but to New Yorkers, that concept simply doesn’t exist. With a steady stream of concerts, gallery exhibits, and new restos and bars to check out, the go-go-go city mentality is stronger than ever. One gal who’s always down to go nonstop is Urban Bush Babes’ co-founder, Cipriana Quann.

This former model is calling all the shots for her ultra-successful lifestyle site, a fount of natural hair culture and all-around inspired living. To find her inspo, the Editor in Chief runs around the city documenting artists, musicians, and other creatives. A recent weekend excursion had the stylish Quann bopping from brunch and studio visits to Afropunk and beyond. And, lucky for us, we scored an invite.
