So I had all these amazing content from Bali, so I merged them all together and pretended to be in a music video .
- I also wrote a poem which I’ve recorded and attached to the full video on YouTube! Link in the bio
Dear Young Me,
I’m sorry for the way I made you feel
Constantly having you question your beauty and place in society.
My lack of faith in you invited dysmorphia who then opened the way for pain, doubt and blurred visions because I clearly couldn’t see just how much you mean to me.
Your beauty so divine
And I heard through the grapevine that there’s magic in you
And I just want you to know that I’m proud of you
Despite the voices and the standards fighting against you, still you rose and pushed through.
Now look at you
Do you know who you are?
You’re far more than what meets the eye
I’ve seen your soul and I can vouch that there’s a God in you
Now look at you
I’m glad that they chose us!
You’ll grow up to inspire and be the women you desired.
Just remember who you are.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

• It was a real legends birthday the other day. Having been a literature student and using poetry as means to express, Maya meant so much to me, I remember the first time reading Still I Rise and feeling empowerment flowing in me and through me. Thank you for teaching me to embrace my sexiness, my sassiness, my intelligence, my blackness - my everything
Last night for @sleekmakeup party, thank you for having me #darkskinwomen#stillirise#melaninpoppin#sleekmakeup#bblogger
People always ask me how I keep my makeup on throughout the whole day whilst remaining on fleek! It starts with skincare and prep! Using my old time and renewed favourite @elizabethardenuk Eight Hour Cream, I can create long lasting makeup looks as well as use it to remove excess makeup. The Eight Hour Cream works perfectly with your day to day skin regime. It moisturises,soothes & even helps shapes my eyebrows yaaas. What makes the Eight Hour Cream even more amazing is you can even use it to moisturise your hands and nails. Between you and I, I also used it to slick my hair down - so basically everything anyone’s ever wanted in a cream Click the link in my bio to find out more! #EightHour#EightHourCream#ad#AllTimeFave#ElizabethArden
Waiting for summer 2018 like ...

I’m so excited to hear what my favourite summer tune gonna be too, last year it was @wizkidayo Daddy Yoo... what will it be this year? Comment below any new songs you currently loving . BTW, I’ve posted my Bali Vlog Part 2 on YouTube so check it out or whateverr - Link in bio #youtuber#summer18#blackgirlmagic#bali
I love not wearing makeup and if I’m being honest, lately I think I’m more into skincare than makeup...but nothing beats the feeling a full face beat gives you . I swear when I finish putting on my makeup I be looking at myself in the mirror like “dark skin Beyoncé is that you?” Anyone else? No..? Just me? ♀️
• s/o @juviasplace for creating my most fave palette. I’ve rinsed the masquerade palette for about two years now #makeupforblackwomen#blackgirlmagic#glow#bblogger#melaninpopping
