I put you on repeat.

 Dress: Monky, Boots: Nelly, Jacket: H&M
Photos:By me

I rarely do repeats or remixes on my blog. It might almost seen like I don't wear the same clothes twice. But to prove you wrong I decided to post this look that I shot at the beginning of september. Oh that day was so damn and windy , but Im glad you cant tell by the looks of it. 

Before I leave you I wanna thank you for being so supportive about the fact that I quit my job. Hopefully on the next post I might be able to give a better update on how its going with that.

Hold on we are going home

I got my eyes on you 
You're everything that I see 
I want your high love and emotion endlessly 
I can't get over you 
You left your mark on me 
I want your high love and emotion endlessly 

Cause you're a good boy and you know it
But you act so different around me
I know exactly who you could be
So hold on we're going home
Just hold on we're going home 
High love and emotion endlessly 

Hello everybody! I decided to quit my job at the home for unaccompanied youth/children. This my second day home and Im geting extremely restless. I'm hoping to find a job soon, but I'm not worried at all. Its been only two day and I already been for an interview for a new job. I just need to be cool and be patience. I know it was a huge and crazy decision, but sometimes you got to do, what you need to do. 

Todays outfit its a actually from weeks ago. The most favorite part is not that I look like a badass, but the fact that I'm embracing my weirdness. Sometimes you need to be weird to be real.

Africa Fashion week Stockholm - day 2 - Love and Diversity

Oh gosh. I feel like I failed you to keep you posted. The second day of the fashion show was super hectic and to make things better I got my period. But dont worry, it didn't slow me down. On the contrary!  So the fashion was amazing the theme for the whole show was "Love and Diversity" and it definitely showed through out the whole evening. I mean Sweden is a country with a lot of diversity. But most events in general do not reflect the population. In other words  regular places like teaters, fashion events, and most events in general are very white. As a young female of color I usually feel like the elephant in the room. But this event was so colorful and balanced. It was well mixed and I felt like every one was included and represented even though the event was called Africa Fashion Week Stockholm. I think it is nice that Aysha, the mind behind Africa Fashion Week Stockholm, decided to change the name of the event for next year. So, the name on everybody's lips next year is going to be "LeNoir Creative Week Stockholm" instead and I love it. I think that is a super clever move and I cannot wait to be more involved in the process for next year. 

One of the moments that Im very exited to tell you about is what happened during the first day at the VIP dinner. So, what had happened was is that I was approached by the camera group and the minds behind VivaAfrique Show, they asked me if I could worked the red carpet the next day. That is, in other words to interview some key people at the red carpet that attended the fashion show. At first I t was very nervous and little bit scared to be honest. But it went MORE then well. And I had so much fun  interacting with the guess. I might just be a natural interviewer as the they say.. But girls and boys that is it for this time. I thought that it I would be ok not to share everything with you now. So today Im just showing you some highlights. I think it would be cool to lift my favorite designers from the show in a separate post. So, please stay tuned!
