Like the vast majority of us, I am a terrible artist. As such, when I first saw this work by artist Christophe Louis, a.k.a. Quibe — in which he eloquently draws Batman, Iron Man, Spock and other characters with just a single line — I was, well… pretty humbled. But mostly just impressed.
So these were my purchases today at Boots. I’m a sucker for packaging and when I saw the Soap and Glory brand in Boots I knew I just HAD to get it! As there stuff is more on the pricey side, I decided to do my research (aka beauty guru review on YouTube). They hyped about the Peaches and Clean cleanser so I purchased it. The Glow Job moisturiser didn’t really do it for me; I didn’t really get the glow that they’d promised on the packaging but maybe that’s just the first day(?). Fingers crossed it does me proud or else that’s 7 quid down the drain!
I’m going to be posting a series of images of my country Somalia and what it was like before. It made me really emotional because I know that it won’t be exactly as it was, with all it’s beauty. I was scrolling through the images with my mum and for her it was nostalgic, at one point she was like ‘take it off’, I asked her why and she replied with ‘It’s too much, it’ll just upset me’. My mum had left Somalia back in the 90s and her plan was to go back; but then things started getting serious and there was no way she could go back to her home country. Nearly all her siblings had left for Europe, America, Saudi Arabia or other parts of Africa, the only ones left behind were my mother’s youngest brother and her mother. But anyway, I don’t want to get too into it. Whenever I look through these images of what my country used to be like it completely dilutes all my passion and love for fashion/the creative arts and just makes me want to become a philanthropist. If you ask me what my one dream, goal, or aspiration in life is it’s to be able to visit my country and restore it back to all its beauty.
