Compilations offer readers a peek inside my head on a weekly basis. This is not a summary of my week, but rather a few important aspects of or enjoyable moments within. After seeing Joy over at Just like Sushi’s collage posts, I was inspired by her knack for stimulating visuals, and decided to do a similar thing here. Alas, we are all not really that original.

jacksgap // I fell in love with Jack and Finn (as most do) pretty immediately after stumbling upon their channel. Constantly inspired by them, so it was only right to include them here...But don’t take my word for it, take their three million + YT following as testament.
Durimel // unplanned twin theme this week but these guys are incredibly inspiring and I think we aspire to have a similar relationship to art, fashion, and film. Kindred spirits perhaps? They are absolutely fly.
first // a web series written by actress and creative writer Jahmela Biggs. I love this series, and I have the utmost respect for Issa Rae, who has used her platform to give voice to other talented writers and artists. This week the season finale aired followed by a live web chat in which viewers like myself could get their questions answered by the cast and director. [here]
natural hair // Made a natural hair response video to the conversations floating around in the community about texture discrimination. It is truly interesting to uncover the nuances that exist among us. [here]
“Is there more you want to say? Because there’s now.” // A quote that ended a moment of sincere reflection for me. Those are truly the best of times, I live for it.
Jhene Aiko - Bed Peace // I've been listening and singing this song non-stop. Just ask my roomie / lover / friend. The video is also quite beautiful. Thanks for the recommendation Yash. [ click song title to listen ]
