This has been a rough couple of weeks to be black in America.
That's not to say that these weeks have been exceptional compared to our presence any other time...regardless, though, that sentiment does in fact relate to this outfit post.
I spent this weekend practicing self care. If you're part of the dysfunctional family that is black Twitter -- more specifically, many black women on Twitter -- you've probably seen the phrase more than a few times recently. But if not: self care is basically the intentional practice of relieving yourself of stress and checking in on your mental health.
I chose to practice that this weekend by going to the beach with my best friend. (Well...after an all day marathon of a cartoon, the day before of course.) Going down to the water, enjoying the view from the new harbor walk and the new mural at West Beach, grabbing my favorite burrito bowl from a favorite local restaurant all made life a little more bearable.
How are you practicing self care? Andddd have you checked out my latest video? I brought back Black Girl Nude and swatched some dope black girl nude lipsticks!
