I am sure you have seen me posting about everything that went on this past week. It has definitely been emotionally draining but its conversations like these that we need to have.
I am so exhausted and trying to explain how impactful this past week has been on me would be very long so I wanted to link a post that I think truly describes everything I am feeling by @itsdemib. She is one of my all-time favorite Black influencers who lives in Chicago and her style is so incredible.
I have compiled some of my favorite posts from this past week in a highlight labeled We matter so feel free to check that out on my Instagram.
Below is a few links I had in my bio during this week on ways to support the BLM movement. These are organizations that support black communities and/or Black Organizations that you can support.
