Black Girl Magic is Power

Black Girl Magic

Hey Loves,

I can’t tell you how excited I am to FINALLY post these pics. I had the amazing opportunity to shoot with the amazing head wrap company Fanm Djanm. Owned by a good friend Paola Mathe, Fanm Djanm gives endless visual of the beauty and diversity of black women. When Paola emailed me and asked if I wanted to be a part of this project, I couldn’t email her back fast enough. This shoot was all about celebrating black history month and our power as black women. I mean honestly, why would I not want to be a part of this? If you aren’t familiar with Fanm Djanm (strong woman in creole) it is the brainchild of Paola Mathe that brings quality headwraps, clothing, jewelry and more to your closet. Paola is not just about selling headwraps but rather creating a story that will allow women to look, feel and be empowered. Be sure to check out her website. You most certainly won’t be disappointed. Soooooo excuse me while I sprinkle #BlackGirlMagic all down this blog post.

But in a perfect world, if all the stars were aligned, with a prayer & a miracle, these are what made it to my 27th birthday wishlist.
