Solange Knowles’ release of ‘A Seat At The Table’ felt like a monumental sigh of relief for Black women who finally had a voice in 2017, expressing so many close to home emotions. Sit back and listen to the album in full again and bask in your own magic. Perfect soundtrack for a day of self appreciation.
Watch Eartha Kitt express her views on compromise and love. This famous interview serves as a great reminder for those to love themselves first without sacrificing it for others. Her comical and passionate reaction is a classic. Go girl!
If your relaxing in bed or the tub, scroll through Sophie Rose Brampton’s Instagram @sophierosebrampton for relatable art/illustrations that’ll have you feeling badass. Some of my personal fav’s are below.
London born singer Cherée @chereeofficial has released her latest single focusing on the topics of mental health, in particular her experience with depression. The metaphors in the song relate to feelings of struggle and battling through the dark to come out better on the other side. Listen for a bit of uplifting through your stresses.
