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...

I’ve Been Nominated!

By Posted on 22 Comments 103 views

So 3 bloggers nominated me last week for the One Lovely Blog Award. I am short of words on how to thank them. Thank you to, Aqualekkergarla, Jae Lei Nyght and Cioccolatuscuro’s Blog for thinking of me and for reading through my blog. Nice to know that someone reads your work.

1] Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

2] List seven random things about yourself.

3] Nominate fifteen other blogs.

4] Notify the fifteen nominees.

5] Put the award logo on your blog.

So I’ve already thanked the three bloggers who nominated me and linked their blogs. Please check them out, you wouldn’t regret it!

Now my seven random facts are:

1.I am dead scared of thunderstorms. Every time it rains, I use my fingers to plug my ears until the storm is over. The rain just dampens my mood. Thunder and lightning are my two worst fears. Can’t stand the loudness of thunder and how threatening and intimidating lightning seems. I’ve always envied photographers who capture beautiful images of lightning. I want to do something similar but I don’t think it will ever happen.

2.I’ve once been seriously burnt. When I was about 8 years old, my friends and I were playing with some very hot water. One of the girls mistakenly (or not, haha!) poured the whole bucket of water on my face. For weeks I went about with a pink face and all the other kids could not stop laughing and staring at me. Still beats me how  my face regained its natural complexion.

3. I listen to Justin Bieber.

4. I wish I was related to Maya Angelou. In fact I think I am.

5. I want to visit Greece, Rome and Egypt and relive every single bit of history that went down there.

6. Music is life. Music, a good book and a nice pair of shoes to occasionally glance at when you’re reading.

7. I love ice cream. I would eat ice cream in Iceland. If I were an Eskimo, I’d have a freezer full of ice cream.

Last but not least, my fifteen blogger nominees are:
