|Inspection Report: Nicholas K FW17 Show|
Who: Nicholas K Fall/Winter '17 Runway Show
Where: Skylight Clarkson Square, NYC
Overall: Does history repeat itself? Well it certainly seem so as designers Nicholas and Christopher Kunz of Nicholas K decided to tap into the communal diversity and unity of the 90s. The sideway berets and the shiny oversized parkas definitely was reminiscent of the 90s, which i loved. However the stand out looks were the monochromatic layered outfits with wrap shirts and dresses. In this times, I appreciate Nicholas K for tapping into the political climate that happened in the 90 which translated into the clothes and now in 2017 revisiting this sentiment is very new and needed.

|Ways To Self-Care|
I'm not going to sugar coat much here... since the presidential election people have been going through it. Now that we're in the new year of 2017 with the success of the Women's March, the No Muslim Ban and the many other protests that's happening in this country right at this moment, it's so important to destress. To sit down and think about this much sadness and anger that's surrounding you can put anyone in a depressive state. Craving out time just to take care of you is crucial for mental clarity. So let's talk about self-care, because if you can't take of your care of yourself, how can you take care of someone else. Below are some of my favorite self-care rituals.
1. Watch your favorite movie with a glass of wine or mocktail.
2. Draw a bath with your favorite bath bombs and essentials oils.
3. Talking about oils... use essential oils for aromatherapy.
4. Get a journal, write down a list of your accomplishments and what you’re grateful for.
5. Go to spa for some pampering ie. massage, facials, manicure, pedicure.
6. Cuddle up with a pet.
8. Exercise the artist in you with an adult coloring book.
9. Surround yourself with plants! (Yes, studies show that having plants improves mental heath and lower levels of depression.)
10. Plan a quick weekend getaway!
In actuality, there's so many ways to self-care that the activities are endless. It's all up to you and what you enjoy to get your mind off whatever that is bothering you in your life.
What does self care means to you?

January 12th of 2017 was a monumental day for the US and actually around the world. This was my second protest but my first for 2017. I found out about the #WomensMarch via instagram and immediately followed and I know I will be joining together in their peacefully protest on the 12th. For the past few months with the election and the results, it's hard to ignore the shift that has happened in the country, more importantly as an African-American woman it would be stupid of me to stand idly by. There were many reasons why I turned out on the 12th but instead of me listing all of my reasons, see all of photos i took of super creative posters by the march in tow.
If you attended the #WomensMarch, what was your main reason?
