BSL Presents: The Skin I'm In - Fall '18 Theme We're going to be hosting several events about inclusion, colorism, intersectionality and more this semester, so stay tuned! #theskinimin
2 flights, 14 hours of travel finally on holiday in Greece for a week. Can not wait to enjoy some mental space from work, routine and responsibility. • • Welcoming a week of sunshine, reading, music, good food and good company. Will do my best to avoid gluten but will definitely be bending the rules on booze and will be celebrating! • • Sometimes it’s good to break the rules and be free. My #psoriasis has definitely flared since arriving- lack of sleep, travel and jet lag, but i know i can get it under control and enjoy this week! • • Relaxing can be the easiest thing to do but often we complicate it and avoid doing it. Just remember you deserve it, can do it and most importantly need it, especially living with #psoriasis ! • • So make sure you listen to your body, take some time, embrace relaxation and #getyourskinout • • #womenshealth #menshealth #bodypositive #beauty #progress #skin #community #autoimmunedisease #mentalhealth #physicalhealth #sun #empowerment #images #girlgaze #bodyimage #dermatology #myskin #theskinimin #vitiligo #eczema #confidence #psoriasisawareness #diversity #inclusion #skincare
Feeling extra motivated in life, with school, work, fitness, etc. Simply surrounding myself with people who lift me up! Remember you are influenced by the people around you. Taking the extra step to make sure that the people around you have your best interest at heart is up to you! Everyone have a great Tuesday ❤️❤️ . . . . . . #motivation #workinghard #love #peace #beauty #beautufulgirl #beautifulpeople #beautifulwomen #beautifulplaces #beach #sexy #cute #thickwomen #thicc #thiccgirls #thickthighssavelives #slimthickgirls #bootybootybooty #bootylicious 🍑 #longhair #melanin #melaninpoppin #theskinimin #blackbeauty #blackqueen #blackqueens #beautiful #fashionnova #tuesdaymotivation #tuesday

If you can’t fly, then run, if you can’t walk run, then walk, if you can’t walk, then crawl, but by all means keep moving. -MLK CROSSING OVER to New beginnings can be both tough and exhilarating. But I’m here for it!! I declared this year to be a radical year and God has delivered immensely! Cheers to new beginnings!
I am soooo not one to take selfies...EVER! I went back and forth and to be completely transparent, I took probably 30 pictures (at least) before I landed on one I felt somewhat okay with sharing 😳😳😳 BUT I had to share because my skin has never looked so good. No, I’m definitely not saying it’s perfect, but for me it’s the best it’s ever been. It’s smooth, I haven’t had my typical breakouts, and it just feels good! There is something to say about feeling good about what you’re putting on your skin....and truly seeing positive results, well that’s just a cherry on top 🍒👌🏼

I remember at 22 years old feeling that I had it all figured out. I was so incredibly naive, overly generous with the wrong people, but was equally ambitious, a zealous dreamer since I was very little. Being uninspired or lackluster was never an issue. I could accomplish anything I desired. I had done it my whole life up to that point. I've always made good grades, I've always gotten the jobs I really tried for and got promotion after promotion. In elementary school I wanted to study environmental biology and save the rainforest. I think Ace Ventura influenced that a bit. In junior high, I wanted to work in mental health and help sad people struggling with depression and grief. In high school, when I was struggling with drugs and suppressed traumas and issues, I decided I wanted to work in criminal justice to help give people a second chance at life. In short, I wanted to save the world. Big goals for a little girl. A decade later and I look back on some of my old pictures and try to remember how I felt at that moment, what was important to me then, and how much different I am now. My cynicism rooted through one too many people I loved who didn't deserve it, a few money-hungry individuals who cared more for wealth and success than decency and self-respect, the realization that much of what I have been taught is lies or cherry-picked, some of my most personal goals shattered out of my control, and my own journey of survival. The girl 10 years ago knew she was a fighter. She just didn't know how many rounds she had. Still, she had a beautiful smile that was rarely forced and an insatiable drive. She's still here. She's just lived a bit. In between rounds, and taking some time to reflect. Life is a gift. #throwback #adecadelater #theskinimin #myjourney #22 #reflection #reminiscing #fighter #howthingschange #older #cynicism #keepsmiling

Lmao I mean... I think this is how most people have to accept me 😂 I don't lotion my legs that much, my hair is probably most likely wrapped in a scarf & my chill clothes is a t-shirt a little bigger than what I need. Love me or hate me 👏🏾👏🏾 I'm good. #Facts #Comfortable #Attraction #understandable #love #loveis #homewear #loveorhate #amen #preach #grateful #theskinimin #lovemeforme

#fitnessfriday : It was a good workout today - sweat dripping everywhere kind of good. When there's a lot going on in my world I can always count on the mat (workout or yoga) to give me the mental clarity, emotional resilience, and energy boost I need to take on the day. It's always been this way for me, ever since I dragged my unhealthy, 16-year old ass into a Bally's back in the day (26 years ago). Like everyone, I have to fight to make/claim the time and not talk myself out of the self-care in lieu of some other priority on my to-do list. . Speaking of asses, mine was looking juicy today and so I'm celebrating it, along with strong back and shoulders too. And sweat. Lots of sweat. . . . . #theskinimin #lifeinabody #myvehicle #selfcareisradical #priority #healthyissexy #strongwomen #fitstripper #teamstrongtease #iworkout #ladieswholift #healthhussy #coachpea #glutesalute #glutes #juicybooty #backmuscles #oscarthegrouch #grouchypants #whatpants ?i

If you’re at The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, make sure you check out the Sharon G. Flake exhibit in the gallery hall, celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Skin I’m In. Growing up, I didn’t understand a lot about myself, including my skin. I was the darkest in my family. I had the kinkiest hair. And when summer came around, the usually words of,”Dang, you got dark,” floated through the air. I’m thankful for Sharon’s books that bring to light issues black girls face. The Skin I’m In is timeless, a classic, and when I have a little girl of my own, I’m going to make sure this book is part of her collection. @flakesharon @carnegielibrary #theskinimin #sharonflake #bookstagram
Three years ago today i decided to reach out and ask for help sharing my #psoriasis story starting the #getyourskinout campaign and movement with this photo. • • I had no idea what i was doing but knew i wanted to connect with people like me. People who understood when i said my skin itches, or how hurtful it was to hear the words i had failed from dermatologists, and people who in-spite of living with psoriasis have an amazing outlook on life and sense of humor. • • The last three years has been magical connecting and forming a strong, intelligent, informed community with #psoriasis The ability to speak freely, to dig deep and share has truly been life changing and i thank everyone that has joined me on this journey. It’s been a joy to see everyone share and start their own movements. • • 3 years on we stand strong, with our voices heard, banning together for advice, emotional support and challenging those who try and damage our lives with psoriasis. • • I’m exceptionally proud of what we’ve achieved together and look forward to another year changing the game, flipping the script and defining our lives with #psoriasis • • For anyone who has been made to feel other living with psoriasis or any other condition, know there is always someone out there who can relate and if you are open to talking it can change your world. • • Keep sharing, keep being unapologetically you, #getyourskinout ♥️ Celebrate our anniversary and share your #getyourskinout pics and story! • • #womenshealth #menshealth #bodypositive #beauty #progress #skin #community #autoimmunedisease #mentalhealth #physicalhealth #sun #empowerment #images #girlgaze #bodyimage #dermatology #myskin #theskinimin #vitiligo #eczema #confidence #psoriasisawareness #diversity #inclusion #skincare

#SensualSelfieChallenge Day 5. Final "challenge" is to use your body to convey softness and strength, sensuality and power. Ask yourself how your relationship with your body or sexuality has been transformed in these last five days? Where would you like to deepen this practice of self-love and sensual expression? What else is left to heal? I've enjoyed the challenges these past five days. They highlighted my growth and confirmed comfort with myself. As a Woman I know that self awareness is important to embody- and as a Woman raising two daughters, it is important for me to be the prototype. It is also important for them to have a father who reinforces the standards I set by showing them their value- to include their sensual value. I have a thirteen year old daughter who has said she thinks it's messed up that male puberty and sexual coming of age stories are celebrated while female puberty and sexual coming of age is treated with shame and she's right... It was a reminder that woman's issues with their bodies start very early in life and the narrative needs to be changed. For a woman's sexuality and sensuality to Matter, it must first be Valued. Period. °°°°°°°°° #sarlejeffries #dayfive #lastday #soft #strength #iamlight #theskinimin #melanin #iamart #walkingcanvas #walkinyourtruth #prototype #xx #woman #mother #mommying #powerful #unashamed #valued #raisingayoungwoman #artist #beyou #hands #sensuality #outofmymindjustintime #organic MY AFFIRMATION— @evyan.whitney When I am soft, I am strong. When I am connected to my senses, my body, my breath, my sexuality, I am powerful. When I let my sensual light shine and be visible, I become a beacon of healing and representation for others. I give them permission to access the soft, bold, vulnerable, unashamed parts of themselves.I will keep nurturing and deepening this relationship I've created with my sensuality because I know that when I give space for my softness, I empower and I heal.
