This was a custom piece done for Margaret and her amazing plus size bridal store! . Beautiful stuff!
This was pen and watercolour and so much fun to do! ♥
I hope you like it! ♥
I started this blog not long before I got married. I don’t have many of the photos back yet, but here are a few nice (and silly!) ones I want to share!
PS: You may know me from my proposal!
I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve cried too many tears over my weight. I had an eating disorder for ten years and although I was technically recovered by the time I came to walk down the aisle, it was still at the forefront of my mind when planning the wedding.
My thoughts of self-loathing reared their ugliest head when it came to choosing my dress of course. I was worried that I’d never find one that I felt good in. I was worried that I’d be uncomfortable all day. I was worried that I’d look back at my wedding photos and cry because I looked so enormous.
There seems to be two main schools of thought when it comes to body image, weight and weddings. There are those, like me now, that believe you should focus on being healthy and not stress yourself out by trying to lose weight before the wedding. Then there are others that go on a diet or sign up to some kind of sadistic bridal bootcamp torture as soon as that sparkler is slipped onto their finger.

We. Can’t. Have. SHIT.
Yt girls out here being useless.
I’m so heated!
stupid muthafuckin broads. oh my gawd
…what’s the big deal? they can do whatever they want with their hair just like we can do whatever the fuck we want with our hair. what’s the problem?
im sorry if this is an ignorant question but whats the issue with her having these hairstyles?
is it that she photographed herself and put them online? or just her being white?
ekdoteenchar softsweettouch It’s because it’s cultural appropriation, yes them being white has a big part to do with it, because they get to gentrify our cultures specifically our hair styles. When we as Black Women wear our hair styles, we get demonized for it. Black Women have been forced to assimilate and straighten our hair, because our natural hair is told to be “unprofessional” “dirty” “distracting” there have been school policies, corporate policies that has banned our natural hair, so we’re forced to straighten it, do not make false equivalences saying when we straighten our hair it’s to get a “white look”.
White hair does not have the versatility nor the volume, and lustrous beauty that our hair has, white people are not the only ones with straight hair, it’s never been about looking white, it’s about surviving in a world where blackness is hated. when they wear our shit, they not only get praised for it, but also take credit for it. We end up getting erased from that culture, our hairstyles aren’t trends for everyone to take, our hairstyles evolved to suite our hair care, there is a purpose for why we wear our hair the way we do.
Black Culture is never respected as a culture until white people take it, and by then they are being held as the originators of it, it’s the same with twerking, jazz, rock n’ roll, blues, bebop, punk, we create these cultural artifacts and we end up getting erased from it, because white people refuse to stay the fuck off our culture. This is systematic, and it happens over and over again, Black Culture is not a trend, and these white girls are getting their hair like this because they think it’s trendy….this doesn’t suit their hair because box braids are meant to be worn for at least 3 months.
White girls have to wash their hair everyday if not every other day, them not washing their hair is bad hygiene and soon folks will attribute that to Black Hair, thinking Black Hair is gross because we don’t need to wash it that often, because our scalp, and hair don’t produce as much oil. We don’t need to wash our hair often because our scalp produce very little oil, washing our hair often would strip our hair of the essential oils we need for healthy hair. Is our hair beautiful yes it is, but there is meaning behind our hair, and this is our hairstyles meant for us.
This is cultural appropriation it’s more than them just being white it’s about how our culture is never respected as off limits, it’s always treated like it has no meaning, it’s not sacred, it’s not beautiful, or worthy of any validation until it’s someone who is non-black, or white stealing and profiting off our style and culture, that’s why it’s a problem. That’s why we’re angry, that’s why this is disrespectful, and this not ever okay. Until Black Women can wear they own hair styles without it being demonized, and there being discrimination, then I don’t want to see no one who isn’t black getting the “Let them be who they are and wear what they want treatment.” If we don’t get that same privilege neither should they culture-less bland mayo asses.
As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.
they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution
it’s really scary
it’s really infuriating
it’s really exhausting
