It’s almost Friday and I’m getting very excited for the long weekend. Here’s a couple of things that I’ve been testing and really enjoying so far!
The @drbarbarasturm balancing toner* is not what I expected. It’s a mild toner that helps make the skin feel smooth and soft immediately. I find it quite hydrating too! I like to use it in the mornings with my hands. I’ll have more thoughts as I use it more!
My face is extremely pale and can look pretty shallow so I’ve been loving the @clinique sun kissed gelee. It’s an oil free gel that gives my face warmth. Much like d-bronzi but without the oil or the shimmer. I like this a lot because it blends seamlessly. It can be used alone or mixed in with other products!
Stark... (@salemmitchell made a post about not being able to find girls like her in her preparation for this trip to Lake Como. It was a beautiful reminder that what I'm doing here does matter.
Black women of course do come from and go to luxurious places and can just as easily exist in these spaces as anyone can. Luxury Aesthetic Blogs, Tags and Accounts could just as easily feature our bodies as they do everyone else's. They just do not. So instead of waiting for our turn or begging for a proverbial seat at the table, I went ahead and made one myself.
Of course this page is still a WIP, there are still so many women who embody the aesthetic of beauty, "class", luxury and ultimate refinement whom I haven't yet found but I didn't want to wait to get a chance.
Thanks to @salemmitchell and her friends for their gorgeous contribution to the #blackwomeninluxury mood boards

My sister told me that today, she said it’s golden because I am now the same age as the day I was born, 23. I think it’s a nice sentiment, this will only happen once in my life after all. I hope that with the blessing of such a day I go forward with new goals of self care, and keep working to become the woman I have always aspired to be. I feel like I’ve been shedding a lot of old skin since the birth of Kira, my mentality is changed and so is my body, as well as my emotions. It’s been a lot to take all at once and now I need to harness these new feelings to achieve greater things. I’m 23, on the 23rd of May 2019 and I couldn’t be more blessed in life right now. Thank you God and thank you to my mother for bringing me into this world.
