A New Balance


When you find that balance, you wanna hold on tight.


Photography by Soul of Shu

Banana Republic Blazer (old; was on sale for $40; try Asos) // Zara Turtleneck (on sale in stores for $23) // Zara trousers (on sale in stores for $23) // New Balance Sneakers (old; was on sale for $40)

I’ve found a new balance in life. I’m not sure if it was a new year resolution; think it just happened by default.

Anyone that ACTUALLY knows me knows how emotional I am. I can cry on spot, but then feel better in 2.5 seconds. It’s been confused for weakness in the past and suddenly I don’t even care anymore. Maybe I am “weak” to some person’s standard; maybe I’m just emotional. All I know is that I’ve become numb to a lot of Krasinee people in 2015 (Ghanaians understand what I mean).

I forget God a lot. Like a lot. But one thing I started to do was focus on him during times of disappointment. I’m not surprised by people who disappoint me anymore. You’ll should try it: be so consumed with Christ that the actions of mere men won’t phase you.

This is, hands down, my favorite shoot since blogging for reasons other than the outfit or picture quality. Shu, an amazing Australian photographer, captured so many of my emotions in each shot. Sometimes I’m consumed with laughter, sometimes I play too much, a lot of times I give people the side eye (especially on MTA), but most times I’m on the go. Just learning how to be on the go to the right places and things, rather than the countless minutes and hours I waste on leaches, social media, unfulfilling work, and sleeping. I could have posted so many more pics but I was afraid you’d get annoyed.

[I’ll talk about my hair tomorrow…and the milk I drank over the weekend that made my hair flourish into European textures- people at corporate America kill me.]

God Bless!

    OOOOh that first picture is totally adorable!!! Darn, even sweat pants can’t hide your natural curves. check that bum out in the last photo. hehehehe. Giving Kim a run for her plastic surgery hahaha.
    This is so editorial. one of your best outfits by far. especially in terms of photography. so laid back but still killing it.
