#blackouttuesday My heart is heavy. I won't say much because others have said it much better than I ever could. We must stand up and be better. As Asians we are inherently very racist. The reasons are ultimately complex but definitely stems from certain superpowers preferred method of divide and rule. As Mauritians we are inherently very racist. We don't see the issue with the system. The system has continuously oppressed black people but because we benefit from that then who cares right? We have elevated ourselves to a higher place than out black brother and sisters because we think we are more successful because we worked harder. This isn't the case. We must take deep hard looks inside us and think very deeply about this divide. We must stand up, we must speak up, we must do better. A note: please show yourself some compassion during this time. There's no right way to protest or to show solidarity. If people aren't sharing/posting on social media it doesn't mean they don't care. They may just have a different way of showing solidarity. We can only be responsible for ourselves, our thoughts our actions.
I have been learning to love myself without makeup more over the last year. This time last year I made the conscious decision (yes, it may have been driven by laziness) to not wear make-up everyday. . I've always had skin problems, but have started to get on top of it more recently. It took me a while cause when I stopped wearing makeup daily I also started to neglect my skincare. Because I wasn't double cleansing, laziness, and thinking that I just didn't need to. This was wrong! Everyone makes skincare mistakes and it's important to admit this. Even if it is on a public platform. . I am now actively changing this. Along with some help from Kayennat, and @fashionicide, I am sorting out my skin care regime. . It's important to love yourself as you are, even while striving for improvement in anyway.
Happy Friday (I appreciate some of us have forgotten the days of the week as everything is blending together) but I'm so glad it's Friday. I absolutely love weekends. I'm not a daily SPF, party because I'm never out in the sun long enough to need sunscreen but last year my face got sunburnt while driving 🙈 so now as soon as the weather changes from grey to sunny I apply SPF during my drives. I have tried a fair few SPF but usually find them very greasy or tacky or they just leave a horrible white/grey cast on my face. I came across this brand @altruistsun when @carolinehirons spoke about it, and firstly she recommended it, secondly it was cheap and thirdly it was on Amazon prime so I obviously ordered it and used it every day while on holiday to keep my skin safe. It's high factor broad spectrum SPF and like the name suggest the company has very heartwarming values (read their stories) And as an brown girl it also has no dreaded white cast! I find that it leaves skin slightly glowy (in a well moisturised kind of way not a sweaty way). It's the best sunscreen I have used. Now that the sun's out again, I've repurchased. Available from Amazon, £8 for 2 X 100 ml. Highly recommended. Who else loves weekends? And thoughts on SPF?

Hello. Okay bye. Kayennat
We also want quad biking, swimming in a gorge and hiking! #wonderlust #mauritius #throwback
One of the best of the days was when we took a catamaran to 2 of the isles of Mauritius, Ile a Gabriel and Ile Plat. It was so lovely seeing a less trampled on beach as they are uninhabited. Of course, the dead coral washed up ashore was still there and that's heartbreaking. The highlight of the day was snorkeling in open waters, at a depth of around 25feet. I only lasted 5 mins before the panic set in, but those were an amazing 5 minutes! #mauritius #throwback #wonderlust
We took a family trip to Mauritius last November. It was amazing because we had our own car, so everyday was busy, and we even went places we haven't been before! #wonderlust #throwback #mauritius
And I think it's been a while since we've had a selfie in here 😘
We also did a dessert table for her party, filled with goodies! #foodporn #foodie #dessert
