Talk nerdy to me 🤓 How cool is this DNA henna design on @phdomics?! ✨ Fatima works to promote gender equality in STEM (the study of science/technology/engineering/maths) and shares her experiences as a PhD student! 👏🏽 Also, loving this killer unconventional mehendi art by @rakscreations 😍 You go, girls! 💃🏽
Tonight I'm going to be ... MK Gandhi. Yep that's me dressed as one of my heroes for a uni project back in '05.
I have always admired Gandhi for his courage and incredible mind. For me it's nothing to do with race. He saw oppression and used his intelligence to defeat it. He understood the power of the media, symbolism and fashion - and used them as tools to bring the most intimidating and dominating empire to it's knees. I admire how he chose to transform himself, he looked deep within and listened to his own voice. He went against the crowed he once thought was everything. He chose to wake up to what was really happening and use his talents to help those in need. Because of his courage, he changed the shape of the world we live in for the better. For me, he is an example of how an ordinary person can become extraordinary.
👁🗨 "Being Filipina means always knowing I have a family and always having support. Not most people have that, but I do. Being half Filipina teaches me that I can learn from both sides of my culture and that they both make me who I am today."
Thank you @acherondrustan! Let's inspire and build a community! What does it mean to be a Filipina to you? DM us, we'd love to know! 💭 #pinaycollective#pinaygrown
You all probably already know who this is. Yasss! It's Rukhsar, every brown girl's favorite youtuber. I just lahhvv her. I mean her videos have made me laugh and smile when nothing else had the charm to. Her videos have taught me one thing: No matter how much the Aunties have troubled your life, there's always a potential to make a joke about it and have a good laugh. Thank you, Rucksar.

My smile is absolutely deceiving here ...@amarasanctuary was absolutely shit — the resort is dated, and terribly maintained and far from the 5⭐️ resort it's touted to be. Our private jacuzzi was poorly maintained and didn't switch off, the room was filthy, with dirt marks on the walls and there was a stain on the duvet cover when we came in. The pool in our condo is far cleaner than the resort's pools, complete with green moss in the kids' area. Such a shitshow - I'm demanding a full or partial refund and I still haven't heard from them.
The only good thing to come out of it was time with #babydaddy — good thing a good friend booked me another #staycay next week. Being on a medically-imposed travel ban sucks ass... luckily we've only a few more weeks of that, and then the fourth trimester arrives! 👶🏾😂
