This past week on Instagram, acts of well-deserved self-care were a priority. Showing herself the Halloween smiling sugar skulls day dead dia de muertos shirt moreover I love this TLC she deserves while healing, Megan Thee Stallion cuddled up in her bed with a few essentials: water, a sketch pad, a notebook, and a few important affirmations including “pray,” “write music,” and “take care of skin!” With a dewy complexion, singer Ari Lennox enjoyed a sunlit sweat session with her boxing trainer, inspiring followers to keep moving while in quarantine. While looking forward to the next bootcamp, I couldn’t help but remember the final day of the inaugural one. Entitled “The Victory Lap,” the podcast kicked off with a clip of Beyoncé’s song “Black Parade”: “Motherland drip on me/ I can’t forget my history, it’s her story.” Her lyrics summarized the theme of it all, and the kind of inspiring ministry that defines this walking, talking movement.
Speaking of sun, many beauty muses celebrated summer with some safe sunbathing. Model Arlenis Sosa radiated warmth while basking in some seaside glory, while Victoria Beckham got up close and personal, enjoying a “perfect summer morning” while rocking her newest lip shade, Chérie. At Jones Beach, model Coco Mitchell soaked up the Halloween smiling sugar skulls day dead dia de muertos shirt moreover I love this rays and breeze while staying “fully protected from the sun.” On a more glamorous note, Guido Palau took us back to Chloe’s Spring 2020 show with a profile shot of model Grace Elizabeth rocking a soft chignon that paired nicely with a dark lip courtesy of Pat McGrath. Finally, Tracee Ellis Ross, wearing a bright lip and sleek bun with a hair scarf, proved a little at-home photo shoot “to keep the Zooms spicy” is good for the soul.
