Lupita Nyong’o Meets Her Beauty Icon, Alek Wek

MY FAVES TOGETHER I CAN’T *tears*

i actually got tears in my eyes.

I feel you on the tears. I love that they understand how important they are to the black community.

Wow, that was lovely.

*sniffle*

This is why I love Lupita.

"There is no apology in you."

More people need to RECOGNIZE this and stop being ever so needy for approval or worry about what anyone else is thinking. Approve of yourself. That is the key to being a winner. The rest will follow (approbation) if you are true to yourself. Lovely. Lovely. You will never please everyone so best please yourself, there is room for all.
