Guys it's actually getting cold *insert Game of Thrones 'winter is coming' reference here*. Catch the sun wherever you can 😩
Being born in a duck yard does not matter, if only you are hatched from a swan's egg ~ Hans Christian Andersen 🐦 AKA "Things I say to my family when they're upsetting me."
"I like the Eiffel Tower because it looks like steel and lace" 🇫🇷 (Spot me jumping for joy because I found the *real* Eiffel Tower... In France, who knew?)
Black women's biggest hair problem is that they think their hair is a problem. You'll hear that natural hair isn't for everyone. It's literally attached to your head - it doesn't get more 'for you' than that. 🙌🏾💃🏾
My quest for 10,000 steps a day brings me to places like this. Water, ducks, sunshine - how can you not feel at peace here?
"Water Lilies is an extension of my life. Without the water, the lilies cannot live, as I am without art" ~ Claude Monet 🎨🌺 If you were ever confused about why he painted the same scenes over and over again, the beauty here answers all your questions.
"The richness I achieve comes from Nature, the source of my inspiration" ~ Claude Monet 🎨 Yes, this time I actually did go to France. 🇫🇷
Bienvenue à Paris! Lol jk this is just Poland's version of the Eiffel Tower on the side of the road somewhere 🗼
Fort Jesus - a 16th Century UNESCO World Heritage site in Mombasa, Kenya. Necessitated by the Turkish, designed by Italians, run by the Portuguese and conquered by Omani Arabs; all unwelcome strangers to a land where they traded enslaved people and their histories alongside spices and silk. 🙏🏾
FUN FACT: Nyhavn was built by Swedish prisoners of war (turns out you didn't have to travel far to pillage, if you were a Viking). Nyhavn is definitely the view I had in my mind when I booked Copenhagen and while it's beautiful, it turns out that the Danes seem to love putting colourful rows of houses all across the city so....
I finally took my first ever solo trip! I went to Denmark for the first time and (without getting too 'inspirational travel blog') it was a fantastic experience, I learned a lot about myself and I urge you to try it if you haven't already. You don't need to go far, or for long. But go. Not everyday try to organise a holiday in a groupchat. You're welcome in advance. ~ "Never did the world make a queen of a girl who hides in houses and dreams without travelling" 👸🏾
