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...

As the 2013 BET Awards approaches, CEO of BET, Debra Lee plays the proud host of the famous star-studded pre-awards celebrations.  The Saturday night celebration dinner brought out the likes of  Ashanti, Adrienne Bailon, Nene Leakes, Angela Simmons and many more. 

Lets’ see who donned what below:

Ashanti answered present in a snake print maxi dress with front slit and cut out detail. She accessorized with a gold belt and £1,130 Guiseppe Zanotti Cacao Suede Sandals with Sculptural Gold-Toned Metal Strap

Her makeup team kept her face with a blush pink lips and side swept soft waves.

Keke Palmer was also in attendance looking all grown up in an all black errthang look. Hair department decided to keep it simple with a ponytail. 

Adrienne Bailon also opted for a black dress which she paired with £570 Gucci gold ankle-cuff sandals in snake print.

Recently married NeNe Leakes and Gregg Leakes were in tow. NeNe paired a monochrome ensemble with Christian Louboutin courts.

Angela Simmons wore a PU midi maxi skirt and a top that boasted geometric shapes. A bit on the fence with this one to be honest.

The Sparkle star, Jordin Sparks went for casual chic in black panel trousers and her favourite  £495 Jimmy Choo neon pink patent-leather sandals. 

Michelle Williams was not one to miss out on the event and she sported the colour of the night – black. She looked okay but I found this a tad boring.

Elle Varner and her ‘Fro à la Diana Ross were in attendance. She donned a purple sequin dress and Louboutin pumps. Her makeup team should have done a better job but she looked fab nonetheless.

Laila Ali brought some much needed colour to the event in this blood orange skater dress. Stunner!
