climbed a mountain and turned around

I'm in my room listening to a shuffle of Fleetwood Mac and my old homies Paramore, they're having a concert on my birthday in Atlanta and I'm psyched - my love for them is pretty equal to my love for Beyonce', which is y'know a lot. So I really really hope I'll be able to see them

I bought this long green pinafore dress like last month in a mall called Dragon Center in Sham Shui Po. that mall is huge for no reason and I get lost there sometimes but it's fine. I'm super stoked about all of my purchases in HK so far, I have a lot of ideas for shoots with the clothes I've bought but I'm gonna wait til I get back to the U.S to do most of them. I'll be working on a few photoshoots here too though with some friends in the next couple weeks so I hope I don't out of creativity

see you all soon <3

green things

Hi! I don't have wifi in my apartment currently and I have to go catch a bus back to it in a few minutes so this will be short n sweet! or probably just short. I'm sorry (mostly to myself) for my sloppy ensemble but that's to be expected when you walk up a mountain in heat and don't have mirrors nearby I think. Hope you're all well and doing good things and loving yourselves, will be back soon. Gonna go read like 80 books at once

I wear my sunglasses at night

Jacket - Maple Fashion // faux leather skirt - 6ixty8ight

I can't remember even like...half of this day and it was only about four days ago (or 6, who's counting). What I do remember is coming back to my apartment after class and then ending up in Tuen Mun with my fly 2nd OOTD. The picture up there with the big M is reminding me that one of my roommates and I also went to McDonalds. I haven't eaten there in 7 years legit except for getting a mcflurry every couple years, it was good but I got spicy chicken and had regret. Spicy food is chill or whatever but lately it's been making me tear up while I eat and that's not fun or ideal?? I'm actually over spicy food at least for the next 2 months so like...sorry to all my POC ancestors but I can't deal.

Hong Kong // Photo Diary

I am currently in Hong Kong, it's so amazing here. Most of these pictures were taken on rainy days, so I'm sorry for the gloom -- but really it looks beautiful here whether it's sunny or raining. it is making me reflect more than I usually do on how so many people are connected to their culture. as a Black girl I'm definitly connected to Black culture and Black American culture, but the culture that I have now is not 100% the culture of my ancestors, and that makes me feel disconnected sometimes. Like I was born from nowhere. but at most, I have the pride in knowing my lineage and that's something to embrace And somewhere start from.

If any of you ever have a chance to come here you should!! just don't be surprised if you end up wanting to pack up and move here too <3

Craving to witness

I began to dislike wearing black immensely. I wore it too often and it made me feel unvibrant and unsaturated and boring. Then I suddenly Wearing black is fun/amazing and cool (+ sometimes lazy). maybe I will get tired of it again and that's okay, but for now I'm going to keep wearing it and hope for the best.

Anyway, I keep thinking of BeyoncĂ© and how men don't get her and won't accept her artistry, or only - on a v basic level - tolerate her artistry and claim they don't 'like' her because girls love her so much. How weird??? it's fine if someone doesn't like her I kind of don't care, but some men go out of their way to announce their disdain for her and I just think it's odd and. Telling. I want to not engage in those conversations ever in life anymore. +
 I forgot to note that most everything I'm wearing is super not new, except for the shoes. And blazer that was given to me by my mom's friend, I need to create like 30 outfits with this bad boy. Okay I'm gonna finish my Snapple and work on some homework, adieu! - Necessary Clothing // mesh bodysuit - (similar) Forever 21 // bracelet - thrifted // shoes - GoJane // pants - secondhand

the golden days // Sammydress layering, but I don't really feel like this outfit is 100% my style I think it's more like my old style yk? still dig this skirt from Sammydress though, they have such cool pieces that kind of amp up my dull looking closet. When I travel abroad I plan to embrace my actual style and bring the outfits in my head that so desperately want to come out. to the surface. 

the quarter's almost over and school has been great, I've made a couple of new friends but have mostly stuck with (that sounds bad, I hate English) my older ones (who I love entirely). I sometimes hold off on initiating new friendships because it just takes so much time and energy to even anyway I'm so so so excited to be traveling abroad, I know it'll be a life altering experience and I kinda want to cry tears of joy just thinking about it.

Hope all of you are well, ttys! <3 I think I'll do a style inspiration post soon, I definitely need it.
