This Sunday I will be participating in the Out Of The Darkerness walk held by AFSP in NYC at Battery park.
This walk is to honor loved ones who have passed due to suicide or even to support loved ones suffering from mental illness or battling the thoughts of suicide. Also for those who themselves are fighting the battle. Through this walk funds are raised and used for research aimed at improving our understanding of suicide and ways to prevent it as well as educational programs to increase awareness about prevention, warning signs and the psychiatric illnesses that can lead to suicide. (This information is directly from http://afsp.donordrive.com)
Nail art is an expression of us, our feelings, thoughts and personality. And so I decided to dedicate my nails to those affected by suicide in any way. This was the message I wrote on my Instagram
“Don’t end you story… I dedicate this set to those affected by suicide and mental illness. Those that have passed like mi lindo (my boyfriend) your story and memory lives on.”
The meaning behind the semicolon is continuing to live. The semicolon is used when a sentence could have been ended but it wasn’t. The sentence is your life and you are the author continue to write. This semicolon motto was introduced by The Semicolon Project, another suicide awareness and mental health organization.

Hello pretties ❤
One way or another you ran into this page and so first I shall welcome you and introduce myself, I am Emily.
Rocking and loving my natural curly kinky hair has been quite a journey and many things have been learned and gained in the process. I love sharing my insight with those on the same journey. While natural hair care and beauty was the core that started this page so much more developed from it.
The best way to define myself and this page is a proud Afro-Latina of many virtues and interest. Creativity is really the root of it all; it drives my passion for fashion which in turn spiked my interest in sewing and exploring the fascinating world of a seamstress. “DIY projects” are my absolute favorite, from sewing to home decor to event designing, being able to visualize and create something from scratch and mere imagination is ultra-gratifying. On 2016 my sister and I started our dream business of event planning later adding a wide variation of handmade goods from aprons to custom party favors and much more. Our company name is Hannie's Decor. We choose the name as a way to commemorate my sister's beautiful babygirl who was born sleeping on July 2016. From such a pain surged a beautiful.
My prime goal is to inspire those who follow my journey. This is not an average hair/beauty/fashion page but rather a lifestyle page with personal life experiences advocating for self-love and acceptance, creativity (our minds are so unique, beautiful and capable of endless things if we just listen to it and follow our imagination), freedom/liberation of social norms and beauty standards, compassion and encouragement.
I hope my posts bring you joy and inspiration

Thank you so much for your kind words they truly touch my heart. I hope all is well. I had a chance to read your post “A Letter to Suicide and Depression” it really hit home. I am so glad you are still here and fighting. Please stay strong and know that your life is precious and need here on earth.

You’re absolutely, welcome. I truly meant it. 🙂 Also, thank you. Everything has been going well and wonderful; I’ll sometimes have those thoughts, but they do not come as much. And soon, they won’t come at all. Haha, if that makes sense. 🙂 I’m glad that it hit home. Thank you so much, my friend. Your words mean a lot. God bless you too, my friend. 🙂
