Eric Garner: "I Can't Breathe"

This morning as soon as I woke up I wrote this status on Facebook: 

"I actually watched Eric Garner die last night. I read about it and saw the video circulating but I couldn't bare to watch it. I finally did last night and I had the worst sleep. I barely slept. It was as horrible as everyone described. I couldn't believe he died like that. He said "I can't breathe" about 3 times and those NYPD officers kept choking him till he was lifeless. At one point an officer joined in to rest his knee on his head or neck. Those words "I can't breathe" were in my head throughout my slumber and I kept jumping out of my sleep, but at least I get to wake up. R.I.P. Eric Garner. A black husband and father is lost senselessly."

Palazzo Pants

If you follow me on instagram maybe you saw that I was attempting to sew some palazzo pants with a matching bandeau top last weekend. The fabric I used was a colourful blue and pink stretch lycra that I've had for about three years. I finally found the courage to sew something with it. I kinda suck at sewing clothes as my specialty is handbags but I'm giving this a valiant effort. I have some other projects coming up that I'll be sharing. I really like the current palazzo pants trend so I figured why not?

Blogging While Brown - Faith In Mobility Video Project

While I was at Blogging While Brown I had the pleasure of participating in the Faith In Mobility video project by Eva Greene Wilson aka Soca Mom & AT&T. I wasn't expecting the question she asked and it tied in perfectly with the Faith In Mobility discussion later that day. She asked me how I used technology to find faith and inspiration. It made me think harder about how important social media is to me.
