So I might not be an American nor do I get a public holiday, but I can still appreciate, remember, celebrate and acknowledge; the man, the Christian, the leader, the nonviolent civil rights activist and the great; that was Martin Luther King. As a child I was told about Martin Luther King Jr and his movement from a young age (at home); I was told about his honour, his persona, his heart, his fight (non physical of course) and most of all; I was told about his DREAM.
Ironically with this week’s agenda; Friday 20th Jan 2017 in particular (Trump’s inauguration *shakes head*); my next point is somewhat invalid. However, lets not forget that for the last 8 year – Yes, 2 Terms- we’ve had a black man in the White House. The leader of the Free World was an African-American. The President of the United States (again, for eight years) was a man of colour. For that we owe more than just thanks or a single day to remember Martin Luther King. Without great leaders like MLK we would not be as we are today.
In 2011 the MLK memorial was built and opened to the public. Lucky for me I was not only in the U.S at the time but I also happened to go to Washington D.C. Thus, I had the pleasure of visiting such amazing and deeply touching memorial- so today I dug this [pictured] out to share!
Although celebrated on the third Monday of Jan (to accommodate your typical public holiday), King’s birthday is actually on the 15th (yesterday) – Happy belated birthday Martin Luther King Jr!
1957-1968, and today in 2017 his spirit lives on. Happy MLK Day!
As November hits, the birthday season commences, celebrations begin and festivities await. As well as my birthday, my sister’s and many other friends and family’s birthdays approaching, The F Word also celebrates as it turns 2!
I started “The F Word” just a few days after my 21st and even fewer days after buying my first pair of Louboutins, because I was so inspired and enthused to share my little slice of luxury with the cyber world. Since then The F Word has travelled to an array of destinations including; Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, New York, Thailand and Malaysia. From urban cities, various Fashion weeks and original art exhibitions to rural landscapes, authentic finds and cultural markets as well as beautiful coastlines, paradise on earth and Mother Nature at her finest; The F Word has certainly seen it’s fair share and as a result, has published some versatile posts over the past 2 years. Featuring fashion, art, food, travel and my obsession with Marc Jacobs through images, videos and creative graphics, The F Word now has 6 pages, 132 posts (and counting) and has reached thousands all over the globe.
Untill another 365 days go by, here’s to The F Word. And yes, that’s cake 🙂 . Shoutout to my amazing Aunty for making it, as always I loved it. Thank you! She literally caters to my Marc Jacobs addiction. Can’t wait til next year! #cakecakecake
So it’s been a year! A whole Three Hundred and Sixty-Five days. Hip-Hip-Hooray!
A year ago today The F Word made its debut into the world; The World Wide Web, and since then quite a bit has changed. Not only has The F word had a facelift and reimage, but I myself have experienced some changes and moved on. The last year has been an eventful one; so eventful that The F Word captured, documented and hash-tagged every last detail.
Not long after my 21st birthday and having bought my first pair of Louboutins, I started this blog. Since then, The F word has seen chaos during Boxing Day sales, the bargain buys and a trip to Brick Lane all before ending the year with a bang. Leaving 2012 behind and strutting into 2013, The F word also saw the Marc Jacobs obsession blossom, Mr. Selfridge build his luxury empire, insight into Victoria’s Secret, Beyoncé’s world tour, 2 new fabulous watches, Marc Jacobs become the creative director for Diet Coke, along with multiple Marc goodies, plenty of other gorgeous designer wear, a rare dessert party, graduation, several interesting art/fashion exhibitions, trips to the Big Apple, Thailand and Malaysia and lets not forget the ooh so glamorous; New York Fashion Week and LFW.
As the 14th November marks The F word’s first birthday, I look forward to yet another fun filled year; with lots of glitz&glam, fashion, art, travel, cake, more fashion and even more cake!
Here’s to another 365 fabulous days- #Watch this space!
