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...

OOTD: En Plat ‘forme’

Yep, I considered the title ‘PlatFORMATION’ for this post. Let’s just get that out of the way. The Queen Bee makes me do too much… *Facepalm*

For a classic pointed courts or pumps lover, I’ve been really into platforms lately. How am I only just getting into them?!!  Apart from adding a few inches; which is what everyone loves high heels for, they also are super comfortable. You tend to last longer in them than stiletto high heels because they have wider heels that are much more comfortable to walk on.

There isn’t a better season to fall in love with platform heels than in the summer. There’s a wealth of styles out right now and I’m spoilt for choice. I’ve been coveting almost every single pair I’ve stumbled across.

These floral platforms caught my eye as soon as I spotted them. I bought them in store and unfortunately I can’t seem to find them on the Topshop website. Urghhhh. They were really cheap too. Only cost me £25 or so. They must have sold out.

This was one of those looks where everything I was wearing was one of my favourite items that is always on repeat. So I was feeling very en forme. Or should I say, en platFORME?

Have yourself a very blessed weekend. Stay En forme.

    You look absolutely gorgeous!! So classy, pretty, elegant and sexy…The kind of woman i´ d lay flat on my back in a mud puddle for myself if i didn´t have a coat, so you could walk on me just to keep your heels from getting ruined! 😉
