Absorbing as much sun as possible on this lovely day
I’m suppose to do the 5 facts about me on my instastory (asked by @janibellrosanne ) but I’ll share one! Fun Fact #1 - I’m terrible at keeping secrets about surprising someone with a gift or something I have planned for them. I literally get too excited to contain it, I must tell them, its too much for me.
ARTIST: @withlove_she • ISN’T THIS THE CUTEST! 💛ILYSM💛 THANK YOU THANK YOU 😍
Patience is something everyone must carry. I admit I drown in my own doubt, in fear I don’t work hard enough for the things I want. But honestly I’m always proven wrong by the results of my own work. Reminded of my worth, don’t forget yours🌻
Feb 8th! Make sure you pull up! So many talented artists such as myself will be there with my artwork! And my boo @marcelaavelina will be performing! (Shes fucking AMAZING) Definitely don’t want to miss❤️❤️❤️
its time i start listening to the advice i give others and stop doing the exact opposite. I tell myself this everyday but again… i dont listen to my own advice.
I said I’m okay, but I guess I’m a liar
Try to figure out the right thing to say or just say nothing at all?
got this Zelda game for my ds, you don’t know how excited I am. Bye world.
I made a separate page for my artwork and I noticed I’ve been getting lots of offers for commission work. The first 50 to message me on my @love.era page will get a portrait for $50!! If you have any further questions message me on @love.era and I will get back to you asap. I want to challenge myself and seriously push to draw at least one portrait a day. (serious inquires only)
While reading poetry, I’ve noticed its been talking to me... also singing a lot of the words that have been lost from my tongue.
probably going to delete this because I’m too shy... womp • song: Crush @yunamusic
“i will tell you, my daughter of your worth not your beauty every day. (your beauty is a given. every being is born beautiful). knowing your worth can save your life. raising you on beauty alone you will be starved. you will be raw. you will be weak. an easy stomach. always in need of someone telling you how beautiful you are.” - @nayyirah.waheed “emotional nutrition”

Once the weather gets warmer I would love to play sports, even if its just for fun. I learned how to play football during middle school on my moms block with the neighborhood kids and played for the softball team in high school for 2 years until I broke my nose and I STILL played during the playoffs. It’s been so long but I still crave the adrenaline and just the fun of sports. I miss it so so muc

it may seem like a long shot but would you rather live your life thinking what if or what could of been??
Starting off 2018 working with @urbanoutfitters !! So amazing! If I could tell myself back in 2015 I would be working with UO I wouldn’t believe myself. Just a reminder to believe in what you can do!

Just got SALT. in the mail so excited to read your book @nayyirah.waheed 💞
Currently Uploading baby hair tutorial!! However I was going through my YouTube and I had a video on private from 2015, talking about going curly. I made it public so you guys can see (YouTube channel in bio) let me know if I should make videos like this. I would love to recreate this!! I’m always open to criticism I want to get better at this so... 🙃🙃 I was also so nervous and shy making this . .
Me: OOoo what flavor is this? Guy: This actually has Matcha- *gets Vegan Planet Earth flavor*
I went on about this yesterday but I’m going to go on about it again just to make sure you didn’t miss this. I don’t care what your intentions are, whether they were good or bad... you NEVER ask a woman if her hair is real or not. ESPECIALLY a black woman. I can’t begin to explain or shouldn’t even have to explain why it is a sensitive subject. What good is it knowing ?? What will you gain? If she

For those who do not know what it means to be an Afro Latino/Afro Latina: someone whose origin is from the Caribbean Islands/Central America/South America with an African descent. We don’t need to look a certain way at all to be who we are. Some guy tried to come at me because I spoke some spanish, saying, “I’m speaking someone else’s language.” 😂😂😂 He clearly does not know who I am. Don’t let my
Tryna feel like I’m @janetjackson again #poeticjustice •Also know i’m long over due but I didn’t forget about that baby hair tutorial, I know I suck 😅😅 I wanted to redo it because I didn’t like how i did it the first time so I have to rerecord it... 🙃 #babyhair #edgesonfleek
Seeing this pic reminds me of the numerous times I would hear ppl say or relate me to carrot top when I first started rocking my hair naturally... i hated it. I don’t hear it anymore but let someone say something I’m ready #tbt
“Black girl magic for me is one just a way of expressing how fabulous women of color are. Just look around you, because there’s plenty of black girl magic around you, and recognize all of the magic that has been set forth in front of us.

A little kindness in life never hurt anyone. I’m not telling you to not have boundaries and be stupidly nice and let people step all over you. I’m saying work hard, be kind to others, stand up for yourself/stand your ground and stay humble. You can be aware of your value and be humble, simultaneously. We are all humans - never look down on someone and think that you are better than someone else. W
