what are your basics?

what are the simple joys that keep you alive? GOD? family? friends? i cannot live without those in my life for sure. i also cannot live without art.

art in music, or food, or writing or in nature. art keeps me alive. when i look at my sisters, i see art. i see art in the way my friends raise their daughter (hi nylie-bean!).

i see art in Jamaica’s rolling hills, in how green the land looks after fresh rain.

art is in my expression of self and in my body’s design. it is in the way i choose to adorn my body, or braid my hair, or paint my lips. and i enjoy every bit of it. today’s outfit is a simple maxi dress, but i think that’s the beauty of this outfit.

there was one thing that made me happy this week: i supremely ‘got my life’ when banks released her debut album! i’m a bit bummed that i won’t be able to see her perform in two weeks but at least i can jam out to her on spotify. her music is haunting and soulful, and i’m here for all of it! so i’m featuring on of the first songs that got me hooked on her sound, it’s called ‘change’, and it’s about the mind games and false promises of a former lover…deep shit.
