We are so thrilled to have recently had the opportunity to not only custom design a one-of-a-kind pair of Vans, but also to make them into Custom Vans Roller skates for our favorite singer, PINK @pink , and some Unicorn ones for her little rollergirl, Willow! We know how much "Wilz" loves to skate around backstage at her Mama's concerts and these rockstars deserve only the best ride ❤ We can't wait to see you ladies out and about on your new skates this year! Xoxo

What can I say about 2018?
Well I started off with a fresh divorce while living in another country alone from close friends and family. -
Moved two times in one year 🤷🏾♀️🥊
Broke my wrist
Traveled and worked (taught) a broken bone.
Worked a full time job in a foreign language 😅
Lost friends I though would be in my life forever.
Found new friends I know that will be in my life forever.
Learned to love and to re-trust myself again.
I found a new relationship with my sister!!
Realized my life isn’t over. It’s just beginning 💜
How was your 2018!? -
Day 15/365! I’ve been practicing these one leg spins this week! I still have a ways to go but they finally look like a one leg spin! 👏🏻💫💖.
So when I got these skates back in August I knew I wanted to do ALL the things on them but I didn’t know when they would happen. Skating everyday is pushing me to learn faster and I couldn’t be more excited! Can you imagine what these spins will look like on day 365 if I keep this up!? 🤔🙀🤯 I will admit, I’m super guilty of not completing anything I start, it’s a terrible quality of mine, so I need all you IG peeps to hold me accountable! K!? 🙏🏼💃🏼💪🏼 #moxiskatedaily#accountability#letsdothis#missyelliot#00smusic .
. Ps. Thank you @missymisdemeanorelliott for the entire Under Construction album! 2002 would’ve been so lame without it. 🙌🏼💖🙌🏼
Happy #WomanCrushWednesday from us at CMM! Today’s woman crush is Slam. She has been with Mayhem for about 2 years and currently serves as our Head Trainer and Head is Media. Learn about her below: “Derby Name/Number: Slamwise Gamgee #25

What got you in to derby: The school I teach at owns roller skates and sometimes my students would skate during gym class. Those were always my favorite days because it would get me reminiscing about being a skate rat as a child. After telling one of my friends about skating at school they told me about CMM. I had no clue that roller derby was even a real life thing! I looked them up and they happened to be in the middle of Freshmeat February. The rest is history.
What is your favorite part of derby: I’m very competitive and have played many sports throughout my life. I love a good personal challenge and jamming happens to be one of the toughest things I’ve ever done. Call me a glutton for punishment, but I’m addicted now and I can’t stop. Give me all the adrenaline!! Bonus points for making some pretty amazing friends along the way too.” (📸Genaro Jacinto)
Skating gives me confidence. •
This past August I turned 21 and I went out and bought myself a pair of moxi’s (thanks @cjsrollerskateshop !!) and that’s how it began. •
The day after I bought them I tried to skate to the park by my house and totally wiped out on the gravelly street (🤦🏼♀️) embarrassed, with bloody hands and elbows, I got back up and kept skating. And then I repeated that process. A lot.
A week later I joined a roller derby team. In a little over two months I passed my MSR’s. And I feel like I’ve found my home. This sport has accepted me, taken me under its wing, and given me the skills to fly. •
I love everything about skating and I can’t wait to see where it takes me.

carbon in our souls, and nitrogen in our brains.

we are all just stars that have people for names.”

Last silhouette with one of my favorite poems. I find it comforting that our cells are recycled when we die back into the universe, a literal reincarnation.
