Welcome Home

As creatives, having your space is important. It allows you to have the freedom to develop ideas that have been floating around in your mind and portray them in different ways. 

I have been fortunate to build creative spaces everywhere I go. Each time gives me a new perspective on life and create new ideas for the future.


For example; Back in 2016, I wrote a post about my bedroom redo in Plymouth, where I transformed my room into a new york/loft style apartment.



Now, 3 years later, I have moved to Bristol with a new job and brand new apartment in the city and thank Allah every day for this blessing. I have always wanted my own space to reflect who I am as a person and the love I have for the arts. 

So without further ado, let me introduce to my new home.

Poetic Justice

Friday, 4 January 2019

As a creative, you can find different outlets to portray different emotions.
For example;

Fashion - This is my unique way of dressing up/down, depending on who I want to be that day.

Art  - This is what I use to paint a picture of how I feel/who has inspired me.

Music - This helps me in creating generating thoughts and feelings.

Poetry - This helps me vocalize exactly how I feel at that moment.

Photography/film - This helps me capture the moment and document it for life.

...etc ( You get the idea)

So since I have conquered some of these fields already, I decided to tap into my emotions and vocalize it with poetry.

These are some books that I would personally recommend if you are like me;

  1. Maya Angelou - And Still I Rise
  2. Alicia Keys - Tears For Water
  3. Morgan Parker - There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyonce
  4. Rupi Kaur - The Sun and Her Flowers
  5. Black Girl Magic
