it’s that time of the month
did you crack 10 eggs on your bed for a post
The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.
Bambi-eyed Malaika Firth is set to be one of the most in demand models of 2014! The Kenyan born beauty (who turned heads in her debut year as the first black model to have a Prada campaign since Naomi Campbell in 1994) has already proven that she has serious staying power after landing a Valentino, Burberry AND a second Prada campaign this year. But that’s not all - she’s also been featured in British, American and Parisian Vogue so a major first cover is imminent. You can catch her natural beauty and charm dominating the runways this F/W 2014, and with a career that is going from strength to strength you will not want to miss it.
Malaika is pictured here in the editorial ‘Spring Uncovered’ shot by Patrick Demarchelier for Vogue UK February 2014
Does anyone else lie in bed at 2:30am filled with the crippling fear that they’re never going to accomplish anything in life and fail miserably or is that just me
"I felt like crying but nothing came out. it was just a sort of sad sickness, sick sad, when you can’t feel any worse. I think you know it. I think everybody knows it now and then. but I think I have known it pretty often, too often."-Charles Bukowski, Tales of Ordinary Madness (via observando)
"When we look back to the Holocaust and WWII people would say, ‘We didn’t do anything because we didn’t know.’ I’ve now documented three genocides: Rwanda, Bosnia, Darfur. The excuse the world community has to say we didn’t know no longer exists."-Ron Haviv, in an interview with NBC’s Ann Curry for her series “Depth of Field.” Ron Haviv, a co-founder of VII photo agency, has documented everything from wars to natural disasters over the last three decades. An exhibition of his work, “Testimony,” is on display at Anastasia Photo in New York City until February 15. (via reportagebygettyimages)

I love this photo because of the movement you can see as she’s going through the pose, and also the pure joy and infectious charm that Alina Somova radiates when she dances. And her fifth position is still perfect.
i always think “if people want to talk to me they will” which is my reasoning for never really starting conversations so i’m permanently thinking no one wants to talk but what if they’re sat there thinking the same and it’s just this cycle of silence that never gets broken because i’m too stubborn to just put myself out there
