The Purple Naturals Collection 

- all yr long all ive ever wanted is to go purple.. but i have a professional job so i live vicariously ~

finally went purple and its the fucking best lol! but yea, i’m getting my degree soon and gonna be looking for jobs and i’m like… hmmm…

Yup I need purple hair next.

I’m gon marry a girl with purple hair.

(via inmydreamsperhaps)

I am so grateful she exists in the world. But apart from my own personal love for her, I think her existence is very important. Because Lupita is there and occupying a place where she’s on her way to becoming a major movie star and looking the way she looks - she has very dark skin, natural hair, her hair looks exactly as it looks as it grows from her head - this is spectacular. And I think it’s fantastic for so many young woman out there in the world for whom beauty for so long has been defined as something they are not. Lupita is glorious.

a discussion we had in WLC concerning women.

And guys on here get so bent out of shape when we voice our opinions on how we feel unwanted by men, especially black men. Like we’re a last option. And I’ve experienced this in all walks of life. This wasn’t just an isolated incidence. That way of thinking is prevalent. Regardless of the opinions of 50 or even a 100 black men on tumblr. Folks get on here and act like they forget how the real world operates and thinks and then points the finger at us when we voice frustrations. And this is not to say all black men feel this way, but I come across more that do than don’t. And many women react the way these women did because they’re conditioned to think they are a last option, if an option at all. It’s so sad to think we believe someone is lying when they pick us first. Sorry for all the commentary on your video, Walker.

welp

YEP!

Jill Andrew: “Fat is a description not a prescription, nor an invitation for hate!”

In a 10-minute TEDx Talk, Jill Andrew, a Black queer feminist based in Toronto and co-founder of Fat in the City, talks about fat shaming, the power of words, and the problem with perpetuating the thin epidemic. Fat in the City is a fashion and lifestyle blog for stylish women with curves.
Jill, a PhD student at York University, draws a parallel between ‘fatness’ and ‘blackness’ as disruptions to dominant thin centric/Eurocentric body ideals. Jill’s key message: “Fat is a description not a prescription, nor an invitation for hate!”

Best Buddies ↪ Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto

When asked what she calls Jared, as he calls her his ex-wife, Lupita laughed saying “I don’t think I can say it on camera”(x)

On Sunday April 13 at the MTV Movie Awards Jared Leto accepted the MTV Movie Award for best onscreen transformation. Jared’s performance in Dallas Buyers Club won him the honour, and he accepted it from Lupita Nyong’o, calling it “an award in itself” to get the trophy from his fellow Oscar winner.
