I’ve been up since 8am today and if I’m up at that ungodly hour on a Saturday there had better be a damn good reason.
Well, today, there was such a reason. Today, I participated in a video shoot for a project called “Perfectly Flawed Project” that focuses on raising awareness about the skin condition vitiligo and also helping others embrace their uniqueness.
I am so proud to be a part of this movement created by Telisha Gibson and I honestly hope I can get involved with more projects like these. The shoot was relaxed and comfortable. I walked in and was pleasantly surprised to see and meet two girls who I follow on instagram and also have vitiligo.

(then I asked for a photo like a normal person would)
It was a great experience to hear each person share their own stories on vitiligo from when they first noticed loss of pigmentation to how they coped and everything in between. Each person was strong and there was even a little 6yr old girl who was interviewed. She was such a cutie pie and also very brave to talk about how she felt when people teased her at school. Yet, when asked if she knew she was beautiful, she proudly responded with a “Yes”. :’)
Headed out to supa fresh clothing brand Extra Butter for a few…
Annnd I just couldn’t help sporting his newly bought Supreme beanie. 😉
All in all, today has been splendid. ❤
