Tbt on my Instagram

I posted these on my Instagram and wanted to post them here on my site. It’s been a while since I had a blow out so let’s reminisce down memory lane.


Hey! I hope that whoever is reading this has a good day 🙂

It’s February which equals black history month and Valentine month so I incorporated both by rocking my fro and standing in pink.




Flapper for a Day

Were in the 20s in another century but who says you can’t get inspired by the styles of the past. I honestly inspired by every decade of styles; each time had its own flair of style that spoke/speaks of the time and the occurrences that were happening in certain years.

Like for instance, flapper is a style of dress but to be a flapper meant you were showing your contempt for social and political rules at the time. You were choosing to push against the strict rules of clothing, you loved jazz, you danced a lot, and you looked great while doing it.

It always interests me just how linked history and style are, they are both influenced by each other. It’s the feeling, it’s the time, it’s the art, it’s the history, it’s the style all linking together.

So, this is me being a flapper for a day, I must say that with it being 2020, with me rewatching both great gatsby’s recently, and with me watching 1920-1930s Harlem footage of some of the clubs of the time I had to try out the style.

Happy 2020!

Happy New Year y’all! May it surround you with what you need and may your flame burn bright this year!
I know that any day is a good day to ignite newness but this day signifies a new year in so many minds. One intention that I am incorporating more into my life is trusting in the plan more through the next 365 days. (or 366 if 2020 is a leap year 🥳)

By trusting in the plan, I mean trusting the flow of things and releasing the need to know almost every aspect. When the flame in my shot burns, it moves and dances with the flow around it ya know?

Flow is a necessary thing, even in structure, purpose, when taking/working towards a direction that calls you in life, when planning, when creating, and delivering. It ultimately helps you to adapt and get in the zone. When I’m in the zone I’m not paying attention to the extremes, in that moment I’m paying attention to the task at hand.

This means taking actions and working with the flow, not against it. Yep, it can be distressing when you don’t know certain aspects when taking the action and that’s okay. I understand it’s the nature of life and there is natural order and purpose within it. Even if there are unperceived pitfalls, we all have them. And though they may be trying/not fun whatsoever, at the end of the day after feeling my feels, acknowledging my feels, and working through my feels… I understand that you should trust in the flow of your process while moving through it. Yeah, it’s easier said than done I know, but in this place we’re human beings, not all knowing beings.

So in this new year trust and flow are some keywords for me. I’m excited for what’s to come. Hellooo 2020! ❤️ Happy 2020
