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...

Style Diary: Nia H

What better way to relax than to have a Sunday day-in and read all about your favourite fashionistas. I’ll let Nia do her thing.
Hi I’m Nia Hand, raised in Tallahassee, FL. Living in Atlanta, GA as a Graphic Designer. Photographer on the side. I grew up as somewhat of a tomboy, didn’t “start” getting into my “girIie” stage until late in high school. Even then, it was a bit of a struggle. It has taken some time and has been a gradual process but now, I’m all in! One day, I just thought about it and I wanted to start a blog! I was kind of unsure what else could I offer that everyone else is already doing?? But, I really just said “whatever, I’ll just do it because I want to!!” So, here I am…New Style Blogger to the scene! I want to perhaps pursue styling in the near future!
My dressing style… I really don’t know how to explain it. I would say that I love to mix old and new pieces and maybe all old pieces to make them look new! I fully embrace color and mixing patterns/textures. There’s hardly a time when I “tone it down.” It seems like I have to have a “pop” of something happening (color/pattern/texture/a piece(s) of jewelry).
 
My influences… It varies from day to day, it definitely all depends on my mood really. But overall, I would say vintage and street smart. I like to make vintage things not look vintage. I like to get inspired by artwork, nature, and color palettes.
 
 
To be honest, I really don’t care about brands. Concentrating on brands has never been my thing. I really just go off of anything that speaks to me.
 
Favorite Make-up Brands
1. L’oreal Hip Pigments. 2. Physicians Formula Sunet Strip/Bronzer 3. Covergirl Mineral Powder 4. elf products because it’s affordable!! 5. I purchased this great palette from Ross by Profusion for $4, and it’s GREAT! I love it. 6. Victoria’s Secret Lip Gloss
 
I’ve always thought my lips were beautiful or just my favorite thing about me! I try to always keep them moisturized and where a good gloss to accent them.
 
I would switch with Solange Knowles for a day. I really loved the style icon that she has turned into. I would also switch with Rihanna, when she had the short jet black hair. Sharp, Sophisticated and Bold.
 
I have so many favorite music tracks so it’s hard to decided…I would say, at this moment, I love The Cinematic Orchestra – Channel 1 Suite is on repeat. 🙂
 
Favorite trend is Neon/Bright Colors.
 
top 5 Must-Haves :
1. Eyeliner
2. Lip Gloss
3. Jewelry  
4. A Smile
5. Cell Phone!
 
All Time fashion icon is Phyllis Hyman
 
Phrase/Saying: Stay Beautiful
