Don’t judge a book by…

Last night, a good friend of mine celebrated her b-day at an Italian place called “Da Vito”. From the outside, “Da Vito” looks like any given pizza joint but in the back of the restaurant, behind that brown door will you find the beautiful bar “Moonshiner”. Folks, if you’re like me, a sucker for pizza and amazing cocktails, this is the spot to visit! It was my first time visiting last night and since I was in my feelings after losing a very important game against Italy, I needed a drink! So, when I saw that the drink “Last Minute” had “Swedish spices” in it, I was like: let’s drink one for Zlatan! As I place my order, one of the bartenders overheard our conversation and said “you’re swedish?”. I said “yes” and he goes “well that’s very obvious”. I could have killed him in so many ways but I decided to say “I know, riiiight?”. #bitchdontkillmyvibe




Yes, I look happy af because last Saturday, I was in a room full of women who looked just like ME and we talked hair and sisterhood ALL DAY LONG! I left the 5th edition of the Natural Hair Academy with a heart filled with so much love and empowerment. I get a bit scared when I think about those days I wished my name was Becky and had “good” hair…Thank you NHA for yet another amazing event!

Summer please?

Me waiting for summer like…really? You still not coming? Listen summer, I managed to stay sane during autumn and winter but you are pushing it too far now. It’s June and you are still not here! I don’t know how long I will be able to do this but the lack of sun is driving me crazy. Jalla putain!




I went back home to Stockholm for a day to celebrate my cousins 30th birthday and that was the best 24h in a long time! We are a bunch of us living in different cities in Sweden so I could not miss out on a chance to hang out with them all even for just one day. We managed to do a lot in 24h but the best part was to sleep on my sisters (gigantic) sofa next to my mother even though she snores like a bear!


For us. By us. #teamKrull

Krull magazine was started by a collection of women with diverse Afro-Swedish backgrounds, who identified in the need to address the lack of inclusiveness in the white normative society in Sweden. This idea of what is normal and universal has been coopted by the majority to exclude people of color. We believe diversity prompts better critical thinking, so we feel it is our duty to give an alternative to the predominant perspective.”  #Amentothat
