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: Laser Cut

laser cut white dress slip

I went to a vintage fair two weeks ago and this bag was the only thing I got. The fur feels super soft and this mini bag reminded me so much of the Philip Lim Beige Ryder Antelope bag 🙂

What are you doing this weekend? I will be rewarding myself with a fat plate of pasta. A friend told me about his 67-day carb-free diet and how when you hit the 67th day you feel so good and free that you won’t even be missing carbs in your meals. As you all know, carbs are my life (can you tell?) and I had a million and one questions…

But what will I have with my eggs and bacon? And every time, he had an answer. Broccoli.

But I also love a wrap sandwich… Lettuce is good substitute.

How am I ever going to enjoy a good beef/pork stir fry without rice? Mashed boiled carrots will do!

Is couscous a carb…? Yes.

Dear Lord. How did you manage to make all of my favourite things fall under the carbs? Tell me, how did that happen? Like couldn’t you just make ice-cream a veg or something?

So I hopped on this carb-free train and lasted for all of one day. I had a soup with large carrot chunks and chopped potatoes. Carbs I know. But they were so tiny and I barely chewed on them…

Needless to say I didn’t last. Not only does, picking up a slice of toast come naturally to me but my hubby is on a high-calorie protein diet which totally conflicts my goals! Lol. Like he chumps down everything and I can’t help but be supportive… 😉 Hahaha.

Are you good at dieting? How do you do it?

PS: Not complaining about my weight. I just love to try out different lifestyles. I try to hit the gym at least twice-thrice a week. (Must get Claire Sulmers’ toned legs!).

PSS: I added some bronze highlights to my hair, can you dig it??!


OUTFIT: H&M dress, Vintage purse, Office nude sandals.

    Love the hair, and I want those shoes! LOL. I had to cut back on carbs for health reasons. It was difficult at first, but after weeks ( and I mean WEEKS) of removing bread, rice, etc. from my daily meals, I didn’t miss it as much. Make no mistake, I still have the urges. But now I keep certain snacks near by (ex: almonds, fruits).
