Instagram's Love

Happy Friday lovely people!!
Yesterday, I ate a platter of sushi with @titocee2000 and drank a bottle of wine.
With the current state of the world, finding the calm in things that make me happy is very important for self care! Food and anime make me happy so I indulge!

This morning, I read about Jahmel Leach, 16, who was assaulted and tased while he was in NYPD custody. Then Oluwatoyin Salau, 19, who was killed in Tallahassee, Florida after she was sexually assaulted. It truly breaks my heart constantly seeing us turn to hashtags and it has been a great source of anxiety for me and I’m sure alot of people as well!

There are countless more stories- some told & some untold and we are tired. We will keep speaking out because we matter, we need to be heard and black people need to be protected!
____
Then some people have the nerve to say “All lives matter”. Of course all lives matter till it comes to black lives. We will keep fighting for BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS!

When people say “Oh you are so strong”.

I am NOT strong.
I struggle with my battles daily.
I cry everyday:
I cry while driving, I cry in the house, I cry before I sleep, I cry on my boyfriend’s shoulders.

Black women go through alot and are expected to be strong. Please no more.
We are not strong just silently dealing with our pain.

As someone who LOVES animation, I decided to incorporate it in most videos I upload on YouTube. The animation either highlights what Tito and I talk about in the video, or the food we will be eating.
____
For last Wednesday’s video, we ate Carnitas and the animation was a play on Mexico and craving Mexican food! Let me know if you like it!

Did you find it challenging to create in quarantine? I know I did!
____
Being creative at home is challenging for me because I am the type that always wants to go outside. I am learning to change that thought process and making use of the resources available to me.
____
Now with everything opening back up, I am hoping to go outside soon (safely) and do what I love doing best which is creating.

The ability to eat out whenever and wherever I want is something I will never take for granted again.

Sending love and light to whoever is reading this caption. I know so many things are going on around us with covid-19, racism, oppression and police brutality. It is okay to protect your mental health by muting all social media till you are more comfortable.
____
It is also okay to talk about it. Some people have said talking does not do anything but I disagree. It is spreading information which is an action in its own.
I hope everyone has a safe weekend ❤️

Has your city/country opened back up?

Happy Monday!

ART AT HOME
____
I had some flowers and fruits from a few weeks ago that were drying up and I decided to cut them up and make it art.

Tips for taking pictures indoors
1. Have a vision. It makes the process faster. I look at IG & Pinterest for inspiration.
2. Always use extra lighting eg a ring light.
3. Add eye catching elements from your surroundings.
4. Use a backdrop that pops but is not too busy.
5. Use a wide angle lens
6. Last but not least, HAVE FUN!!!!
