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: Shades of Mint

By Posted on 7 Comments 111 views
The bad good thing about launching one OOTD is that it gets you on a roll. I am currently on an OOTD high. I literally dream about putting outfits together these days. The other day I saw myself casually tossing a Birkin bag around while I sprinted on the grass as the photographer tried to capture the beautiful moment where my flowy Stella McCartney skirt and wavy hair were in symmetry. Of course in this vision I didn’t need heels because my olive-coloured legs went on for days… My beeping phone, right on cue woke me out of this reverie. Shaking my head I stepped out of my bed and…OUCH!!!!! I had stepped on a pin which I had left lying about from my ‘Pimp My Bag,’ session the night before. And just like that in one pin prick, my Birkin/McCartney bubble was burst. Thank you very much, old and ungrateful bag which I am trying to pimp!
My gosh! How much digression can I do? More like how much digression can YOU take? Back to my OOTD.
Before you read view my OOTD, there are a few things you should know:
-I have  never tried to match my outfits by colours. In fact I hate to match colours. But just for a change, I decided to summon all things mint from my closet today. Tried them on and…voila! 
-I swear i spent hours  (okay half an hour, but still…)  straightening and adding shine to my hair. Making sure every strand was in place. But then I stepped out the front door and hello WIND.
-Again, you will come across me making some weird faces but that is because I was holding in laughter. Some curious truck driver decided to stop by and just watch. Well he was making weird faces and everyone knows nobody wants to get into a ‘How Many Facial Expressions Can You Make Competition’ with a truck driver. Those guys have it in the bag when it comes to that battle.
Without much hoobaloo, here’s my many Shades of Mint.

*Outfit: Top-Next, Trousers-H&M, Belt-Vintage, Purse-River Island, Shoes-Schuh.
How do you wear mint? Send your pics to artbecomesyou@yahoo.com. I’m in love with this colour. Thanks for stopping by. Rate , Like and Subscribe!!
