Black Lives Matter

Hi, loves. 

It didn’t feel right to post ‘normal’ content this week. My heart is breaking for the world we’re living in. Instead I’d love for you to check out the below links (everything in bold, pink letters). Please donate if you’re in a position to do so, but if you’re not there are so many other things you can do too. 

Read. Listen. Share. Read again. Listen again. Share again. Never stop reading, listening or sharing. 

I know that I will never fully understand, but I stand with the Black community.
