Huffington Post: Our one year Anniversary!

Let’s Celebrate!

“5-Year-Old Channels Solange Knowles For Perfectly Recreated Album Cover”

An article written by Taylor Pittman, Parents Associate Editor by Huff Post.

Wow, I remember this day like it was yesterday and I can’t believe its already been a year. We are so happy to share this milestone in our lives with you; being featured on Huffington Post was such a huge milestone for us and we are so grateful! We look back on the night that we recreated Solange Knowles “A Seat at the Table” album cover and think to ourselves “this is going to be epic”.

“Take one look at this little girl, and it’s clear she exemplifies #BlackGirlMagic.

Yup, thats Me! :-). Epic right?

Ahnari was also featured on BuzzFeed: 

“This is 5-year-old Ahnari from Miami, Florida. She loves Solange, whose new album A Seat at the Table went to No. 1 after its release earlier this month.”

Often times we are so consumed with what we are doing now or what we need to do later that we never take the opportunity to celebrate our accomplishments. I believe that every accomplishment we receive should be celebrated, whether big or small. So start celebrating!

“When you’ve reached an important milestone, instead of immediately moving on to the long list of things that you have to do next, spend some time reflecting on what you’ve accomplished – and celebrate it.”

A Seat at the Table…

Dear Solange, 

Thank you for being someone I could look up to. I appreciate your style and your courageousness. I look at you and say wow, look how beautiful she is. I look like her… I can be like her! 

P.S. My favorite songs from “A Seat at the Table” are F.U.B.U., Cranes in the Sky, Mad, Don’t Touch my Hair, and I got so Much Magic. 

With Love & Respect,

Ahnari

Ahnari Recreates Solange's Album Cover

One year later.

“exactly a year ago, I turned in a seat at the table with knots in my stomach. if you would have told me then, I’d playing it live and sell out hollywood bowl, radio city, greek theatre and kennedy center, i wouldn’t have even been able to wrap my head around it. im so incredible grateful for the journey I’ve been able to take with this record, and as we kick off this tour tonight I am filled with an abundance of jubilance and light for all of it….the love, the pain, the rage, the process and the rise…”

As we’re writing this blog… we’re enjoying the change in season (it’s officially fall, yaayyyy!) especially with the mellow tunes and profound lyrics from your album that are playing oh so eloquently in the background. As the natural light pours in from our window there is a glimmer of hope that overcomes the darkness in the world. Not the darkness from the skin that is being hated so much but the actual definition of hate.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -M.L.K. Jr.

A Seat at the Table” is truly a body of work filled with explanations and understanding of not only what the African American/Black culture faces but what our gender as women face; a topic specifically important to me because of not only myself but my mother, my sisters, daughters, etc etc. American singer, songwriter, model, actress, wife, mother, sister to Beyoncé… woman… Solange, touches on some of these issues in her 2016 Album “A Seat at the Table” (available now for purchase on iTunes) but leaves us motivated and feeling powerful, encouraged, and more importantly, beautiful. We will be forever grateful for this album taking a chance on culture and diversity and we wholeheartedly thankful for having an icon to look up to. Representation matters… this is not something limited to a specific group of people but something that should be available to us all. We recreated your album cover in honor of you because you represent me…US!

“The secret to modeling is not being perfect. What one needs is a face that people can identify in a second. You have to be given what’s needed by nature, and what’s needed is to bring something new.”

– Karl Lagerfeld

Behind the scenes…

Scientists discover that humans have 21 different facial expressions – more than three times the long-accepted figure of six. I guess this intrigued my mom to take photos of me in our walk-in closet. Most times I am never opposed to taking photos; other times I find myself reminding my mom that I am only 6 years old and I just want to play. At this particular time, I was game for it. After all, it is my mum and I wanted to make her happy. Continue reading “In The Gucci Closet.”

I turned six…

My mom turned up and showed out and made my six year old vision come to life. I mean… Beyoncé is equivalent to the Michael Jackson of her time. I mean… I love Beyonce and she understands. Like seriously… what would Beyonce do? We literally have this saying in our home to help make our decisions a little bit easier. But to answer… I think she would make Lemonade. My mom did that too…
