Do not loose your wonder
We are all born wonderers
I wonder, do we run out of wonder?
Should we stop looking up as we grow up?
Hold your gaze, because out there
There’s others like us and nothing like us
And who knows where the window will be, we look through next
Wonderers, keep wondering
Because the more we wonder the closer we become ~ Anonymous (Lifted this piece from the new Heathrow advert narrated by John Boyega)
A portrait of a mystical Funmi Iyanda, a brilliant and eccentric mind who challenges me as a human being, Lord knows we all need people like her. Makeup by the glorious @lordmaclean
One thing i admire most about this kingwoman is her originality and how real she is, can remember on one episode of New Dawn where she showed of her belt telling viewers she bought it from a thrift store “Okrika”
Still conquering the world, still impacting and making lives beautiful, reshaping people with her talk show and her brilliant words, many more years ahead and keep looking beautiful and a chief witch that you are.
