COMPILATION || "TWIN-ING" [1]


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 ]

TIBI + FIT + YUNA YANG + CLYDEEE | NYFW F17

I had the opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week recently. If you know me or this blog, it's been a very long time coming. Ok, maybe like three years but still it was a plesant surprise to receive my first real invite to a NYFW show, this side of the continent***. I felt truly special, as NYFW  seems to set out to make one feel, with the stark scent of exclusivity. But I also knew almost immediately, I couldn't let the opportunity pass me by. It was practically divine. On the very same day I looked up the dates for this past season's show, was the very same day I ranted about the state of NYFW, and the very same day Yuna Yang sent me an invite. Something much larger than I was at work, so I took heed and followed through with the prompting (Thank you sweet baby Jesus). Yuna Yang

FORurinforMATION.

Listen.
And yes that word counts as a B reference so let's just start there.
