My best friends getting married tomorrow inshallah OMG
Yesterday I came home very upset as some friends and I went to Boots to find out what skin tone we all were so we could buy makeup for a friends wedding. I have always said that my friends are fairer than me and that I have way more colour than them. This has been a regular debate within the group and has been going on ever since we have been friends. Anyway the lady tested us and I was cool ivory. When I asked her to put us in order lightest to darkest she said I was lightest. I nearly died. I wish I was less ghost like.
Bradford: City of Dreams was actually a good programme. For once it was a positive look at Bradford. It did show how run down Bradford is but explained that people still strive to make something of themselves and whatever your ethnicity people live side by side happily. The highlight was seeing my brother though :-D
For those of you who criticize Janelle’s signature monochromatic look.
From her speech on “Black Girls Rock”:
“When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a proud janitor. My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office and my father was a trashman. They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.
This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.
Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.” - Janelle Monáe
This is my new Transformer tattoo (Jazz). This was moments after it was done.. I had to do it in two sessions. It was done by Jeremy Utley at Fat Brothers Tattoo in Highland, MI.. He did a great job and I love the way it turned out.
Jeremy Kyle doesn’t get personal space. Why is he so close to people’s faces? I feel awkward for the people on his show.
