Shoe shopping

As I told you in my last post I don’t have enough ankle boots to wear .I went shoes shopping in Primark today. And I came across some beautiful ankle boots.I love wearing ankle boots for riding my bike because there comfortable and fashionable.I like to ride in style.I came across these in various colours. There only £12.

I sometimes think I should brought two pairs since there so cheap as it’s not easy having big feet .As shoes for big feet are generally expensive and sometimes they don’t come in my size arrhh !

What you think ,I think there Uber stylish and lovely bright colour. There a fake suede material.

Dark Skin Black women being demonized in the media!

Dark Skin black women of the mahogany variety are constantly being demonized .And are having there feminine stripped away. They are regularly presented as androgyny , as more masculine then there fair skin sisters. Its a very damaging and dehumanize for black women .Its continue of what was happening under colonization and slavery .That black people were class as half human.

This is Sudenese model Alek Wek below and here is a disgusting photo which stinks of racism.Why are dark skin black women nearly always present as over masculine, why is dark skin black woman photography with devil horns all the way down her body?

When fair skin black women like Beyonce are celebrated. Its like the closer your are to white the more human your presented.Photos like these, brainwash people into using brutal behave towards black women It makes white people scared of dark skin black women especially.

Grace Jones in the 80s was presented the same was , as to say she less attractive then a medium brown skin black women like Kelly Rowland.

Dark skin black women seems to be photography to make them look scary, dark & sinister. Look at how Mel Brown was named Scary Spice just over hair.But in contrast look at how a white woman like Sinead O Connor ,when has she been portray as masculine, just because she has a bald head? Racism can be very convert , people.

A dark skin Black women feminine is always questioned, as to say she lacks it compare to light skin women.I am fed up of the subtle racism at play here .The question prose by  Sojourner Truth proposed Aint I women ? Is as relevant today , as it was for her. There are people celebrating the Black Panther Movie but not asking how many times do we have to see dark skin bald head black women presented as masculine and wonder why black women are killed at the hands of white police officers.

Just my thoughts folks please share on social media and comment..

Nikon new AP lens

I’ve had my Nikon D5100 since 2014 , its take me a long time to get use too it. And I am still learning how to use it. But I am upset ,as Nikon has changed there lens and the new AP lens aren’t compatible with my old D5100 Camera. There only compatible with three Nikon DSLR cameras: D3300, D5300 and D5500. I regret buying this camera to be honest ,I wish I would have brought Canon instead.

NIKON AP

Nikon lens are also more expensive then Canon. Nikon a brand for someone with a lot of cash to burn. Not a mature student like me on a limited budget. I think its time to switch to Canon. I would like to get the Canon 700d or 750.

I would also like to get a mirrorless camera like Canon M10 because its got pop up screen and changeable lens .It would be a great vlogging camera.I would also like to get some different lens to take more photos with.This is my Wish list is 50mm lens , 55-200mm .

Headscarf

Its so important to be proud of where you come from ,especially if your of African descent. The way Africans are demonized in the media is disgusting.But today was one of those days when I said Fuck western beaut standards.I am doing me 360 days a year.This headscarf inspired by the Fulani and Tuareg women of Niger.Team Africa

Why is it so hard for the west to understand that its wealth is built on the back of Africans pain ,suffering and wealth.Its time to celebrate diverse of Africa and not just western European Caucasian beauty .FYBStandards.

Dashiki Print African Dresses

Lately I have been taping into my African roots more .I am getting fed up of Western  fashion.I am fed up of not finding my size in Primark and other high street shops .I am fed up of having to lose weight to fit into clothes. So when these African Dashiki Print  Dresses and pant suits pop up. I put it on my fashion must have items list straight away. I have seen these online in Youtube videos, blogs and everyone seem to be wearing them.Men and women.

They seems to come in all shapes, sizes and colours. The Dashiki shirts one will allow me to eat my pounded yam and Afia Efere soup (Efik White soup) .Without me passing out because I cant breathe after dinner in my tight western clothing. That’s the beauty of bagging African style clothing ,you can still look beautiful and fashionable while being comfortable.
