H E A L I N G: ⁣How’s everyone doing so far today?⁣⁣Revisiting one of my favourite books by @theijeoma and almost every quote is relatable in the middle of this revolution that’s happening. ⁣⁣“1. You must let the pain visit.⁣2. You must allow it teach you.⁣3. You must not allow it overstay.”⁣⁣— Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada⁣⁣Pain comes in different forms. Pain can be quiet. Pain can sneak up on you. Remember it’s okay to feel overwhelmed and also okay to log off and recuperate. ⁣⁣What’s happening is painful but it is NECESSARY. It’s allowed so many black people to express years and years of pent up pain, anger and frustration.⁣⁣But remember to allow yourself to heal ✊🏾🙏🏾 ⁣ #blacklivesstillmatter

P U L L  U P: Morning ig fam. Diversity is a strength, not a threat ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 It’s amazing the support we’ve seen for #BlackLivesMatter over the last few days but let’s keep the momentum going. This is just the beginning. We’re not going to dismantle in a week, racism that has been in-built for decades and it’s going to take more than posting black squares on the feed. Let’s keep calling out BS where we see it. Here for @jackieaina ‘s call for brands to #pulluporshutup 🙌🏾 PS: I shared in my stories my example of a brand that needs to do better when it comes to matching up their actions with their words...

ABY Life: I Was On The Wendy Williams TV Show!

By Posted on 4 Comments 107 views

So I was featured on Wendy Williams TV Show….***Squealing****

Here’s how it happened:

Someone who works on The Wendy Show contacted me on Instagram and said the loved my #LittleWhiteDress outfit as seen below. And they would like to feature it on the show during the Wendy InstaGlam segment. I was like yeah, do whatever. LOL. You know how Instagram is, fake impostors here and there. But I still submitted the picture and gave my consent anyway. What did I have to loose right?

The next day, before I knew it I had an array of messages saying we’ve just seen you on Wendy’s show? I’m going, WHAAAT?! No way. I never win anything. This outfit wasn’t even an OUTFIT. The picture quality isn’t even great. If I had to pick a photo of myself to air on National TV I wouldn’t pick this one, the American audience can scrutinize for Jesus I no want receive insults oh…but what do I know? When blessings come, ALWAYS expect a shocker.

We were out having dinner for Sandrine’s birthday in April. I was having a Marilyn Monroe moment in that white dress and they loved it!

I haven’t seen the show because it was only aired yesterday and will probably only air in the UK in a couple of weeks. If you watched the show please I need a screenshot or 15 second clip. Pleaseeee 🙁 I think it was the show where Taye Diggs was a guest. Not too sure.

Lessons I’ve learnt from this:

-There is always someone out there scouring the internet and streets for something or someone to showcase. Watch what you upload.  Stay representin’.

-I will use Instagram more. Social media is a powerful marketing tool.

-You are your own business card. Live your brand. As soon as I knew they had been to my IG profile, I was going oh gosh. This my dry profile probably won’t impress them. Haha.

-Use the write tags. Tagging your photo helps people find you on Insta. I tagged #LittleWhiteDress and that’s what left a trail. If you see me over tagging as from on, don’t say I didn’t warn ya 😉

Thanks @WendyWilliamsShow for making my day and thanks @SandrineAbega for throwing the birthday party. Thank God for putting a smile on my face.

PS: I’m still waiting for video snippets especially form all my US based friends.
