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.

Mike Brown. Ferguson.  //  The justice system in America. 
So many young lives lost due to stereotyping and a lack of reverence for the lives of young black & brown babies. Babies. Fight Ferguson. Stay strong, and get to work. We have so much to yet overcome. Fight Ferguson. Fight America. Fight people.

rog walker // a beautiful brown photographer doing great work. This is a 'test shot' of Kiah Victoria. I first came across him in the promotional video for one of ONA's new camera bags. Come to find out, he is the photographer behind two of the images I recently re-blogged on my tumblr. He has also photographed other great & beautiful people such as Cipriana Quann of Urban Bush Babes & Joshua Kissi of Street Etiquette. 

fermented foods // just became a bit of a grown-up as I moved into my first real place on my own to end my senior year of uni on the right note. Bedrooms and living rooms are cool, but I am most excited about having my own kitchen. I love simple cooking and natural eating. Fermented foods will definitely be an experiment I undertake. It should come in handy next month as my roommate and I have challenged each other to go vegan for a month. Pray for us.

Lacrae - Background // Speaking of prayer, Lacrae, a gospel rapper, has been on major repeat lately. I know gospel rap sounds cheesier than a gang of bro tees in the gym but hear him out- he's good. One of the only Christian rappers to break into the general market of hip-hop because well, he spits truth.

"They say you came for the lame- I'm the lamest, I made a mess but you said you'll erase it, I'll take it. They said you came for the lame- I'm the lamest, I broke my life but they said you'll replace it, I'll take it." - Lacrae, 'Just Like You'

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

Entering from the End || On ALL NIGHT of LEMONADE by B

I am listening to “All Night” and I am in tears. I am crying from the inside-out. There is no flood, just pain (and healing *rolling eye emoji).


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