5 ‘Black Girl Magic’ Reminders That Solange Gave Us

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?

Empowering Myself With Patience And Determination

I know this a very different and unusual post in comparison to what I originally write about, however, I thought the message behind this shoot was important to share. I recently did a shoot for a friend of mine who is a professional photographer, she had asked me to model for her in a very intimate shoot. At first I was nervous about the whole thing mainly because I’m not the sexy kind of girl at all! And I’m okay with, but now how am I suppose to pose in front of a camera and make people believe I’m sexy. But to my surprise the whole shoot was a great success and it helped me love myself more. We all have insecurities but we can work on those insecurities and turn them into our strengths.

The Internet has become a space filled with negativity and positivity depending on where you’re looking. When I was growing up there weren’t social media platforms which encouraged self-love or helped a person to learn to be comfortable in their skin, instead it showed me what was accepted by society and what wasn’t. However, as the future generation we can change that and remind young people behind us that they can be whoever they want to be and no matter what they look like, they will be loved, because beauty comes in “endless amount of forms and we need to recognise that.” – Alessia Cara.
