Flowers

What type of flower are you?

No, this is not a joke! Have you found your inner flower? Have you learned to embrace it?

You’re probably wondering what the heck I’m talking about, so I’ll tell you! A flower is one that lives life existentially. Flowers are adventurous and easygoing. Flowers live life at ease, without stressing the nitty-gritties of the world around us which tend to plague our minds. But of course, upholding the flower mentality, there can never be a specific guideline on how to be a flower or what type of flower you are. Just as flowers differ and hold different attributes, your inner flower is the same. I happen to identify the most with sunflowers.

Sunflowers are underrated beauties, highly melanated (represent the sun), thickly/ strongly rooted, symbolize loyalty and longevity, thrive in hot temperature and varying soils, and are productive. (LOL) I am actually reaching with this interpretation. Anywho, my best friend Yendry and I shared being “flowers” as an insider for a few months, inspired by our Calculus teacher Ms. C. We never really put thought into what type of flowers we were nor did we ever have to explain it to anyone- until our Wildwood vacation. Being flowers was the running joke between the girls and I, after three of us got different flower hennas on our wrists while on the boardwalk (the henna wasn’t even legit.. rip off!). It led us into identifying what types of flowers we were/ wanted to be. Seeing how in depth I got with explaining my inner flower, I can just imagine Yendry’s face while reading this (Hey girl!)

Welp, here you have it! Go on and find/ embrace your inner flower! Comment below what type of flower you see yourself as!

FASHION POST: Black Girl Magik

Hey Beauties! I’m back with another fashion post, and if you are new, welcome to my blog!

Today, I’m serving cotton candy looks topped off with a thick coat of melanin magik. This look is inspired by a YouTuber I recently discovered, Kiera Please. I somehow ran upon her content, fell in love with her scarf top styles, and knew I had to recreate it! It’s so easy too: get a large scarf, wrap it around as you wish, and tie it off (Definitely watch her videos to see the different ways you can style it)! *My scarf is much smaller than hers, but I managed to pull it off because I have a much smaller bust. I’ll definitely be buying more large scarves to rock this look more throughout the summer. Don’t sleep on this!

I woke up feeling really bummy on this beautiful Saturday morning! I was in bed all morning until my Liberian beauty, Deamah, came over looking so cute! Seeing how vibrant she looked, I was inspired to get dressed, put on some makeup, and have a little photo shoot with her. Here are my captured moments!

Usually I’m not a fan of two different patterns, but this meshed well!

 

My mom said, “Take a picture in front of the clothes line so they can know you are from the village!”

I’m from the village!

 

 

My neighbors kept looking at us while we were taking pictures lol.. that still didn’t stop me.

 

Scarf: Ordered from an online shop called Wish| Skirt: Thrifted from Plato’s Closet

 

Can y’all see the pieces of broken glass on the ground? I was feeling extra bold, all in the sake of taking pictures. But I’m really happy with the way this came out, and thank God for no injuries.

 

I wish my life was as defined as these curls!

 

 

Was never really a fan of close-ups, just cause I usually don’t like the way they come out. But these do it for me!
