clear water, tanned skin, can't lose ☀️when i was younger i used to *hate* getting darker in the summer and it's a sentiment that many black women used to share. this speaks to a larger issue of colorism in the black community but i now LOVE when my skin darkens in the sun and mellows out to this gorgeous bronze color. i have learned to love the skin i'm in and hope that we will learn to uplift and support black women of ALL skin tones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As I was growing up, my mom always had a circle of amazing women around her. My mom is an only child, so she built her sisterhood through her friends. These women are now my aunties; their children my cousins, their families are now my family. Most importantly; when things would get tough, she would know when it was time to ask for help. So when @the.wing asked me to share some words of wisdom, I thought of my mom and her village. #Repost

i had this moment the other day when I couldn't believe the fact that my best friend is having a baby just because i remember when we used to talk about having kids and raising them together. and can't forget about the dope portrait we'd get made of us and our kids w/ a tiger (??) now that moment is here for you @itsjeanine_ and i couldn't be more excited. you are going to be an EXCELLENT mom and baby boy is gonna have the best analogies ever. love you more than words can express and i'm so glad i was able to share these beautiful moments with you.
