I’ve been saying for a while about how i’d love to start writing more meaningful things on my blog; I have a platform, so why not talk about things that matter to me? Well one thing that is of huge importance to me (and something which I constantly talk about on my social media) is the lack of ethnic representation within the blogging/modelling community.
It’s been quite difficult for me to construct this post as so many feelings and thoughts; I‘ve been sitting on this post for nearly three months trying to come up with a cohesive essay, however I’m scrapping that and what I’m going to do instead is feature some of my favourite plus bloggers of colour and show some love! I hope you guys come to love ’em as much as I do. 😀
