the vibes were immaculate and this energy isn’t going away. as someone with a following, i felt a responsibility to post petitions, podcasts and little snippets of knowledge for people to get involved with #blacklivesmatter this week. but to be quite honest, i just wanted to sit and read. i wanted to understand. i had nothing to say and everything to learn. there’s many sayings floating around right now like “i understand that i will never understand. yet i stand...” and it’s poetic and lovely and it makes us feel nice. but what does it even mean? watching hate crime video after police brutality video only desensitises yourself to the murder of innocent black people. it’s poison and it’s sadistic. it’s important that the truth is revealed and justice is served. but clicking and watching a video like that will not solve the problem. it’s not enough to simply witness these atrocities, feel awful, and do nothing. it’s time to step away and look at yourself on the inside (and I’m talking to myself too ). knowledge truly is power and if we’re always talking, we’re never learning. it’s time to be anti-racist. now is not the time for white guilt or defensiveness. ask yourself how you want the world to change. then change it, starting with yourself and the people you love.
stop looking elsewhere to solve the problem and start looking within yourself
𝐁𝐋𝐀𝐂𝐊 𝐋𝐈𝐕𝐄𝐒 𝐌𝐀𝐓𝐓𝐄𝐑 look within yourself. never stop learning. never stop teaching. it is not enough to pass it off as someone else’s problem. no freedom until we’re equal. #blackouttuesday
i found a pea in my garden
You’ve probably seen a lot of people posting a picture captioned “until tomorrow” and basically I liked the one @jessybarden posted so I had to post an embarrassing picture of myself for 24hrs with no explanation. To be quite honest I find most (all ) pictures of myself embarrassing because I have really low self esteem. So I posted this picture ^ which for me highlights all of my insecurities and makes me feel pretty embarrassed. Although you and I both know I could have found a picture that was far more embarrassing for me, the point is, I even struggle with a picture as ordinary as this. I’m trying my absolute best to stop being like that because being mean to yourself is such a waste of time/life/energy so instead of deleting this after 24hrs, I’m gonna leave it up as a reminder to myself of how I really look and that it’s completely okay to look like this. Thanks for all the nice comments, I was honestly pretty blown away. 2020 is for lifting yourself uppppp💚💖
IT’S INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY - I’d like to take this time to say how in awe I am of these four fabulous ladies! We spent today casting for our upcoming short film and there is no place I would have rather been. You blow me away with your kindness and hardwork and I feel like the best version of myself when we’re in the zone. The dreamiest of teams 🗣🖤

this year was the best. i fell in love with a boy and i fell in love with myself 😏 i started saying “no”. i stopped worrying about the past, i stopped wishing for the future, and i started loving life for what it is today - because “today is a gift, that is why they call it ‘the present’”. i made time to do more of the things that bring me joy. 2020 will probably be filled with more days spent tending our pot plant children which sounds perfect to me. for anyone who needs to hear this: it starts with you and the changes you’re willing to make. it’s out there for you to take. so don’t just seize the day, seize your life. happy new year 🥳
You like my two piece!???? Well this is no ordinary two piece. I have teamed up with @weekdayofficial and @infinitedfiber to co create this fabulous double-denim dream using the world’s first fabric made from recycled cardboard and agricultural waste. The best part about this fabric?! It can be continuously recycled. I SAID CONTINUOUSLY RECYCLED... 😳 Incredible. Weekday are the first fashion brand to create a garment with this fabric, which means I’m the first to wear it. Ahhhhhh. Making history today. 💗 shot by @reubenselby #ad

What a dream come true 🖤 I feel so honoured to have shared the Emmy’s stage with the most wonderful cast of all time, for the last time, picking up best show for Game of Thrones. 10 years of joy, mud and magic. Thank you. To celebrate our final year, I was lucky enough to wear this custom collaboration between Reuben Selby and JW Anderson. Many hours, many pleats, and MANY CRYSTALS. Thank you for making my red carpet dreams come true - I felt unstoppable. 🖤
