Funny ha ha ... but for real tho?!!!!


So this is not a new picture, as it has been circulating around the websphere for a while now and I am sure like me, that many people have seen it before, but it was the caption on this particular version that caught my attention and made me burst out laughing...'I thought she was being kidnapped' LOL!!! After I had my fill of laughter, I actually sat back shook my head and asked myself... WHYYYYYYY? Why do black women blessed with such naturally beautiful, age defying, melanin rich, dark skin do this?! I do not want to come over all Judge Judy, but this issue is one that actually really pains me! 

Nykhor dun did it again!



My dear Nykhor Paul has done it again. If once wasn't enough, she surely aimed to hit the nail on the head this time...and good for her! Today, Nykhor sent out another message to 'Dear white people in the fashion world' via her Instagram account. The message was just as long as her earlier message that I posted about recently (here) but this time she seemed to be addressing accusations levelled at her of being a racist!

Body Ambition...

WHICH DO YOU PREFER?
Ok so in a previous post I said that I had started a weight loss and fitness journey (see here). Since then I have been mentally preparing myself for this journey by reading up on weight loss, fitness, healthy eating etc. The hardest part of this preliminary phase has been to cut the crap out of my diet. It's so weird, it's like the minute I decide to get fit and lose some inches, for some unexplainable reason I just want to eat biscuits and drink Rose (can't find the accented e on the keyboard, but you know what I mean... the pink wine). I think that because I know that I am in for a bit of an ordeal with this new challenge, I have really just let myself do whatever the hell I want food wise, knowing that it will all have to stop very soon. I mean.... snacking at 2am?!

Black Models In A Non-Inclusive Fashion Industry....

So on Monday, I was scrolling through my Instagram feed, as I do daily, and I came across the post above by Nykhor, who I follow. The first sentence alone was enough to make me freeze on the spot until I had read every last word of the post. I don't think that I have EVER seen, heard or read such an explicit and direct message 'to white people' against racism by a public figure before. Well, I made my contribution to the comments and continued about my business. Little did I know that Nykhor's post would then go viral! I mean just type her name into Google and you will see... this post is everywhere. So clearly, being a blog primarily about black women I thought I should 'mention' it here....

Okay so what are you thinking whilst looking at this picture?! I am generally not one who tends to be at a loss for words, but when I stumbled across this picture... my jaw literally dropped! It's still finding its way back up... People people people... it is with total respect and admiration that I introduce you to this inspiring young woman Nae Ashlan: a Michigan(USA) based medical student.
