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: No Photo Album

dusty pink coat 1a

The chill has been so real lately, I haven’t even had the effrontery to attempt a photo session. So into my archives I’ve dug…

And this is what I came up with.

Took these a few weeks ago when we went to see my hubby’s Nan after the new year. We have become the camera-toting couple and as soon as we starting snapping away, she became curious.

‘So when are we going to see this photo album?’

That made me laugh so hard because the last time I actually bought or used a photo album was light years ago. I can’t even remember going through one.

I told her she’d have to subscribe to my blog or follow me on Instagram to view the exclusive photos, hahahaha.

Even though I always explain to her that I have a blog, she still can’t see the point of taking so many pictures if you ain’t going be sticking them up in no photo album.

Makes me wonder what will be the THING to do with your pictures in the future.

Will anybody even care about Instagram? I would give anything to access my hi5 and MySpace profiles again. Damn. We knew we was LIT back then. The foolery that was (and is still) social media. Bwahahahahaha.

Did you use any of these now defunct social media sites in the past?

On that note, have a jolly good weekend!

    Wow! MySpace. I forgot about that. Haha. I’ll take it back even further. Do you remember chat rooms? LOL Your hubby’s nan makes me laugh. Aside from the difference in generations, I really love this outfit. You paired the colors perfectly…not too much of one color.
    I understand what you mean about the weather. Brrrr. I actually like the fall/winter, butttttt, it’s too cold to take pictures outside. Hope you have a wonderful weekend hon! Xx

    Pretty in pink girl! I just love that coat on you.
    Your husband’s Nan is too cute! You’ll have to open an Instagram account for her! I did that for my mom, she never post anything but just follows a bunch of people. She’s says she just likes to creep other peoples pages.LOL!

    It is so funny you said this about her asking about the photo album!
    My grandparents asked me a few months ago to send them some pics of me and my first instinct was, “Huh?? Just go online..”
    But my gramp gramps aren’t as internet-savvy as some others are so you know what I did?
    I made them a photo album.

    I used Moo to create a photobook out of my best blog pics (food ones included) and captioned all 40 of them.
    Wrap that shit like Christmas morning and sent it to them.

    They show that album to EVERYONE
    I’m actually tickled pink over it.

    Grandpa goes, “Did you go to the studio to take all of these!!?”
    No grandpa! I just walked outside. See that’s a sidewalk…
    “Yeah but these days they can edit that stuff in, you know?”
    Grandpa…no, lol.

      ahahahahah so funny. But that is such a lovely gift though! I might take some time off to compile one. LOL @photo studio. hahahah. Poor gramps. Funny how they photoshopped simple things like sidewalks and trees into shots . lol. :)x
      I need to catch up on some fierce goodness on your blog though. Sure I been missing out on the tea you always dish. lool.

    First of all let me say how gorgeous you look once again! Head to toe perfection! Second, wheat a laugh with your husband’s grandmother! I have just managed to explain to my sweet mom how to use her email and Skype, now she is also able to take a look on my insta profile hahahah! I was on MySpace too, it was the first thing I did with my first computer! Seems like ages ago, and who knows what we will be the thing to do with photos a few years later!
    I really enjoyed this post 🙂

    You look so stunning in this pink and red outfit! and I actually was thinking about the same thing, would people keep checking their instagram after 5 years? Why did we stop printing out photos?! I guess I like the idea of having an album for the memories!

      Yea definitely. I have been trying to find pictures that are worth printing for a photo album…:)
