Spring is officially here and I couldn’t be more excited! The sight of blooming flowers and sunshine makes everything so much more mesmerising. The fact that we can now pull out all the fun and lightweight clothing and finally say goodbye to heavy puffers, is a definite yes from me.
The off-the-shoulder trend is a spring fashion staple that everyone needs in their wardrobe this season. It is a statement piece that can be pulled off with anything from high-waisted jeans to mini skirts. I had so much fun rocking my off-the-shoulder top with a clean white pair of denims.

Every year the ‘black girl magic’ just keeps getting better and undoubtedly noticeably. There have been so many ‘wow, it feels good to be a black woman’ moments, although there are still many hurdles to overcome, it is just wonderful seeing black girls and women occupying more spaces than before.
Some of my favourite black girl moments included the release of visuals for ‘Lemonade’ and ‘A seat at the table’ which extruded of some many black pride moments, glorifying the beauty that is black people. While in fashion Lupita Nyong’o and Michelle Obama looked ever so graceful and mesmerising on their individual Vogue covers. And most recently I was ecstatic to hear about Issa Rae receiving a Golden Globe for the relatable and quirky television series, ‘Insecure.’ My goodness there were just so many more black women success moments in 2016, but these are just the few that stood out for me.
The Knowles sisters have officially killed the music scene this year. I know you’re probably thinking, why am I writing a post about music. But I just could not pretend that Solange’s latest album did not change my life and make feel so good about being an unapologetically black woman.
Fans like myself have had to wait for four years for Solange to finally bless us with the masterpiece that is, ‘A Seat At The Table.’ If you haven’t listened to it yet, can I just ask you what are you waiting for? This album will permanently be on repeat for me that people will probably get sick and tired of hanging around me. It is an album for black women made by a black woman, how much more magical can it get?
