I had a blast with my friends looking at our future vehicles 🙂 A girl can dream and will!

Can you see me driving in this SUV?

This industry is so shallow, that I find myself wondering why I remain in it. Even though, I’m still on the sidelines and not at all a top tier, get flown out to Coachella or BeautyCon level influencer. Why is it when one voice is elevated another has to be silenced? Why does one always have to cancel out the other? I’m noticing, especially in the beauty/fashion and blogging industry, that only certain voices are elevated. Fat white women or bi-racial (light skin/curly hair) with the ‘right kind of plus size body’ are being pushed more so than Black or dark-skinned individuals. More so than individuals who don’t have the ‘Hour-Glass’ figure. You cannot call yourself body-positive if you don’t ELEVATE and CELEBRATE ALL BODIES. You cannot call yourself a feminist if you don’t consider ALL WOMEN’S RIGHTS. You cannot claim that your company is ‘cutting-edge’ if you ain’t willing to cut them edges and think outside the box. Sometimes, I’d like to resign. Because it seems like a lot of us are chasing our own tails. That the media is just too big for us to tackle begging for equality. And that instead of trying to get a seat at the table, I build my own damn table and my own chair and sit at the head of that bih 💅🏽💅🏽💅🏽 Do you think body positivity is a trend/fad? Do you notice in body-pos or ‘all body’ campaigns that they erase dark-skin and black individuals? Is the industry too shallow? Let’s chat.
