blacks-and-yoga

When I was [first] photographing myself, I would look at the pictures and think, oh, my belly is there and it’s fat. But over time, I realized that I’m really strong to be able to hold these poses. My belly is there, and I’m still strong.

Good morning!

Sipping coffee, watching people come and go at the airport and thinking about the above☝🏼️I grew up hearing “Pretty is as pretty does.” Meaning, it’s more important to be kind than beautiful. Thank you, mom.

Cheers to being pretty happy it’s Friday! Xx
