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: On Est High Père

It’s been raining intermittently for days now. So unfortunately I haven’t been able to get any pictures taken at all; (well hello autumn, we see you). Thankfully, the rains gave in for a few hours and I was able to slip in a few shots. You can still see the water on my skirt 🙁

So, Cameroonian  rapper, Stanley Enow is making waves with his catchy single ‘Hein Père’. This song is getting so much and you know what, it deserves it and more. Therefore, it isn’t a surprise that when I heard about Hein Père merchandise, I didn’t hesitate to jump on the train. I purchased the On Est High Pere female tank top in white. You can get yours too from here.

There are so many ways to wear this tank. You can always dress it up or dress it down. I dressed it up here by going for the classic white and black combo. A midi leather pencil skirt and my favourite leather jacket completed my fit. I accessorized with a pair of quite comfortable ankle strap wedge heels which I got from Office in the summer. Unfortunately they’ve sold out but River Island have got a similar pair. My biker leather jacket is from Topshop and is over a year old but it’s such a classic. 

I got my braids in only two weeks ago. They still hurt like crazy every time I try a bun so I’ve just been letting them loose. I went for a berry lip using Rouge Pur Couture Fuschia Pink by Yves Saint Laurent. I’ve fallen in love with this lipstick. I can’t get enough of it.

Leather biker jacket – Topshop (sold out but similar here)

Wedge heels – Office UK (sold out but similar here)

I’ve worn this skirt with a scarf print blouse before here. Which ensemble do you prefer? Hehehe.
