I haven’t done an inspiration post in awhile and thought it’s about time that I post another one… especially since summer is almost upon us and I will probably be doing a lot of traveling. Sometimes when I am feeling stuck in a rut or a little lack luster I turn to my trusty tumblr feed to show me something cool, interesting, special, bad AF, cute, or something that makes me think. Not to mention my blog roll always has some good ish. It’s also nice to aggregate your thoughts into one place.
So, without further ado…here we go!
about the struggle to embrace their beautiful dark brown skin, it reminded of a post I wrote awhile back titled “You’re Pretty…for a Dark Skinned Girl.” I too, have struggled with having dark skin. I was blessed enough to have an amazing mother who told me how beautiful I was and did little things like only buying me black Barbies so I could see representations of beauty the world that looked like me. However, it was the rest world that would continue to try and convince me that my skin wasn’t beautiful. But eventually, I was able to come to a point in my life where I said f*ck ’em, if people can’t appreciate what I have to offer then they aren’t worth my time. I think all shades of brown are beautiful and hope that one day they are all celebrated equally.
Those posts inspired me to start a Beauty Diary series, featuring beauty products that I love, that look great on women of color..especially darker skinned woman. Growing up I’ve had such a hard time trying to find colors that actually looked good on me. So…stay tuned, I love makeup and will be sharing all my beauty loves!!
I was going through my weekly blog roll and realized there are so many outfits that I wanna try, so I decided to compile them for you. Happy Friday! =]
I really love her style; it’s so sleek and simple but every outfit pops and looks bomb!
