Riverside Runnin it for Chenda’s Birthday!

In high school we had it out for each other and we had the dirtiest past. Now, she’s one of the sweetest, most real girls I know. I admire how much she has grown and what a beautiful person she is. Who knew we would ever be such good friends?

Can’t wait to d__p  

Cannot wait to leave this fckng job and start a new life elsewhere so I can decorate my body how I’ve always wanted without having to hide myself. 

The money right though, bae. 

Went from dating a guy who was like a good roommate to me, to dating a guy who makes me feel beautiful and loved even when I don’t feel like it myself.

STYLE ICON: Oroma Elewa.

With the ever-increasing popularity of ankara fabrics, over the past few years we’ve seen an overwhelming amount of interest from the world of mainstream fashion in the stylistic talents that African designers have to offer, a curiosity that was cemented with the publication of Helen Jennings’ book New African Fashion. However, no one captures the diversity and behind-the-scenes culture of African creatives across the globe quite like Oroma Elewa.

As editor-in-chief and creative director of Pop’Africana - the quintessential bible on global African fashion and the culture behind it - Nigerian-born Elewa casts a much needed and refreshing lens on the diversity and complexities of the individuals and talents who, globally, are re-defining and re-shaping the constructs of various African identities.

Fittingly, this highly talented diaspora darling is just as diverse aesthetically as her originally biannual, soon-to-be digital, publication.

Oroma Elewa is not just a stunning personality with a wardrobe to match, but a creative force to be reckoned with.


Industrial designer Scott Summit, of Summit ID, creates incredibly beautiful prosthetic pieces. They are created on a 3D printer, with the user’s other limbs as a point of reference, resulting in beautifully symmetric limbs.  

His philosophy of creating personal and elegant rather than mass-produced, functional pieces really shows through the grace of his work.  

Some of the more beautiful things that come out of this philosophy range from recreating a tattoo that was lost to matching a purse to looking like a piece of sport equipment: whatever is important and personal to the wearer’s life become reflected in their new prosthetic limb. 

(Listen to his Ted Talk here)

Feeling strongly about this.

I saw this post that said, “Girls should date a few bad guys so when they meet a good guy, they can appreciate him.” FUQ THAT.

We shouldn’t have to be treated like shit at all. I’m smart enough to know what I have, and if I find something great but I’m not ready to deal? Then respect that and move the fuck on. Stop bitching about how you were lead on or wtf ever because it happens to EVERYONE. 

To conclude, girls (and everyone!) should have all the fun they want and as long as they’re real about what they want then they shouldn’t be deemed as fucked up for messing a round with a guy (or girl) that wants more from them. This is like, half of all the relationships/hookups I’ve ever had and I used to make myself feel bad and guilty about. In retrospect, I have no reason to feel that way cause bitch, I kept it one hunna. 

These guys KILL ME. #myteam #workforce #surprise #rude

5 of my favorite photos because I feel shitty about myself.

When you… 

  • feel like you haven’t been shopping in f o r e v e r and your style now sucks
  • to expand on above, I don’t feel like a cute girl lately
  • haven’t been able to afford getting your hair touched up
  • feel like you’ve gained 5 lbs
  • feel like you’ve got to tighten up and bring my game back

if you don’t want a girl to ride your face then you need to reevaluate your life
