Kayla, also known as Peaches Monroe, is the young woman who went viral on the now deleted app, Vine, by creating a six second video exclaiming how her eyebrows were “on fleek”.

After the phrase went viral, suddenly, this phrase was being picked up by everyone. Retailers such as Forever 21 were putting the phrase on their t-shirts, companies were using it in their advertisements, and Nicki Minaj even uses the phrase when she raps in her song “Feeling Myself”. In the popular song, Nicki is heard bragging, “Kitty on fleek, pretty on fleek. Pretty gang always keep them n*ggas on geek”. Despite the immense popularity of the term she created, Peaches didn’t receive any monetary compensation for the use of her words.

Since the widely acclaimed video from a few years ago, Peaches has accumulated a rather large social media following. After all these years, Peaches is RECLAIMING HER TIME AND RECLAIMING HER PHRASE!!!

On August 31st, the young women, turned entrepreneur, ventured into the beauty industry by launching her own website peachesonfleek.com .
