Maybe you're checking your "Good morning" texts, or how many likes you got overnight and before you know it, 15 minutes have passed and now you're rushing to get out the door. I'm guilty, you're guilty. If you've got 15 minutes to check your phone, you've got 15 minutes to do what's on this list.
I'm not the maternal type of gal. I can't think about having children when I'm still a children. But as of lately these celeb babies just make me want to hug em tight......(then give them back).
Haiti has been left for dead, but we are here. And we’ve always been here. That matters so much to me. "Nou led, nou la" is a declaration of perseverance and strength. As the world's first Black independent nation, Haiti will forever be known as the catalyst that changed the course of history for Africans everywhere, forever. However, quite frankly, we’ve heard it all before. As of lately, I have a new take on things.
I watched the video looking for the appropriating of said culture. When the video ended I thought "oh well it's a cool video" that's when I realized I didn't really know what culture appropriation was. In this post-apocalyptic Kardashian time that we are living in, let me be honest and say that I thought that cultural appropriation is when a white person copies something from any culture that is not theirs.
I have no intent of bashing men. I love men! But as a woman I will defend myself against those who think harassment of any kind is okay.
When I was growing up, I never even looked at complexion. Maybe a kid had big ears, or bucked teeth, but I saw everyone around me as just...Black.
Kerry's artistic style features strikingly black figures who both break stereotypes and represent the Black experience in total realness or in his words "unequivocally, emphatically black". I wanted to share a few of my faves with you guys! You already know I'm all about perspective, so I'll also share a few of my interpretations as well. Put on your thinking caps and check it out!
IV Girls did it again! Last weekend IV Girls hosted our second fundraiser, the IV Girls Pop-Up shop! IV Girls wanted to support black entrepreneurs and introduce our community to new brands and products made for us, by us!
Founded by Schaina Gilot, RN, BSN, the mission of IV Girls is to instill a love of learning and passion for service inside of the young women we will be working with. Our goal is to raise money to grant our recipients in March 2018. Our very first fundraiser was "Sip & Paint" at Pinot's Palette in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
I've seen the spiritual and physical benefits of fasting firsthand. So if you are wondering about whether you should do a fast or not, the answer is yes. Now that my fast is over, I am ready to share my experience with you guys. I've received a lot of questions and I've put together a post to answer all of them and then some.
Grieving is your heart using the present tense when your mind is telling you to use the past. It is almost neurotic. My mom is…or was? “Was” becomes a word that betrays your heart and its desire to hold on. It is a word that pushes the agenda of “moving on” before “moving on” is an option because in your spirit and your heart, she is… As me and my family approach this anniversary of the worst day of our lives, I am compelled to think about what I have learned about recovering from this day and all that it means for the rest of my life.
Between hosting and handling behind-the-scene shenanigans, i had very little time to put some lovin' on my vision board. The whole point of a vision board is to portray the dreams you have for yourself, and mine was FILLED with blank spaces. I don't see how I was expecting to live a super dope life with a super wack board. I made some much needed changes!
