Hi there, I’m baaaack!!!
I’ve been a way for quite a while now and it was a welcomed break. I just needed some time to step away from the blog and come back with a renewed mind. But, what better way to jump back in this blog life than the cutest mommy and me graphic tee for those of us blessed with the melanin. Queue Shopsophistishe.com please!
I love supporting small businesses, especially black owned! I have a heart for those who are brave enough to go after their own dream. One day I hope to get my mind together and do the same soon. Anyway, it was a friend of mine who sent me a pic of this tee and said, “Camille needs this!” I fell in love with it immediately and had to have it. I contacted the business owner, Sheena, and told her how much I loved the melanin tee! She was kind enough to send one for Camille and I! So I am proudly sharing this melanin t-shirt with you because you just have to support an amazing small business that encourages us to love the skin we’re in!
Lets teach our little ones to love who they were created to be…
Its so important to instill in our babies the importance of who they are and to love themselves. The world today has its own version of “perfection” that we see all day, every day on social media. I remember my mom instilling in me that I was beautiful, intelligent black girl and to know my worth. My mom bought me black Barbies and dolls because she wanted me to see myself and identify with the beauty God has given us.
I went to a majority white school from 1st grade up until 8th grade and it was HARD. Being a minority in a majority white school was not always rainbows and butterflies. Looking back, I appreciate my mom constantly instilling in me the beauty of being an African-American and always educating me of my history. This is what I hope to instill in Camille as I raise her, to be a proud and strong black woman!
Thats why I love this melanin t-shirt, not only is it cute, but it also shares the importance of loving yourself. Camille absolutely loves this t-shirt. She’s worn it a few times already and even asks if she can sleep in it lol. We had such a fun doing this shoot as its been a while since our last one (click HERE to see it).
So definitely head to Sheena’s site, https://shopsophistishe.com and grab your melanin t-shirt ASAP!!
