I am constantly battling whether I want to continue blogging, because it isn't what it used to be.

Its like everyday there is another issue to fight. Another hashtag to another murder. Another injustice. Another person dead for no valid reason. Another black person being told you aren't worth shit.

White Womanhood

"You were afraid to nurse your young
lest fallen breast offend your master's

Keturah Ariel Art

As an artist I am always looking for inspiration and I love when I come across illustrators who do art with black people.

I have seen Keturah Ariel's art floating around in the internet space and I instantly fell in love.

I saw alot of youtubers and bloggers talk about the Huetiful steamer and I put it on my wishlist. Then 2 years ago at Christmas..I opened a large box from mumzy and yes you guessed it. It was a steamer!!
