alyshanett Hey everyone. Full transparency- since the beginning of the pandemic I’ve felt myself slip. In fact I guess I can honestly say I’ve been slipping for years but the isolation paired with the feelings of helplessness caused my depression to slip further than ever before. I have been struggling with severe PTSD & depression for several years (likely undiagnosed for most of my life) and my addiction to social media increases my symptoms. About a month ago i was able to start receiving treatment for the first time in my life. After talking things over with my therapist, I’ve decided to take the summer off from social media. After 12 years online, it’s time for a break. My brain is sick and i need to help myself so i can help others and use this platform to it’s full capacity. The only platform i will continue updating is my P @tre0n for any creative works I’m able to make during this time. (If you are a member i highly recommend downloading the app for updates.) It’s not my intention to take away any focus from the Black & Brown lives that need our love & support now more than ever. I will continue to be an ally, donating my time & resources to the BLM movement and I hope all of you continue to advocate for justice and human rights in your daily lives. I love you all, thank you for your continued support over the years. I hope to see you again in a few months when my brain is healthy again. ❤️ Stay strong!
alyshanett It’s not enough to be outraged. What are you doing with that anger? White people I’m talking to you! You’re upset about rioting and looting? Why? Are you not upset about what happened to get us to this point? It’s not enough to coast through life because because you think the problems of Black & brown people don’t concern you. THEY DO! “United we stand, divided we fall.” Listen. Learn. Educate YOURSELF and then take those hard conversations to the dinner table. Call your dad out for being a racist jerk. Shame your racist granny for passing that ideology down your family tree. Then sign the petitions and donate to the cause. BREAK THE FUCKING CYCLE. ✊✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 #sayhisname#GeorgeFloyd#Blacklivesmatter
alyshanett 🚨GIVEAWAY🚨 Listen, I waited as long as I could but there was just no way I could keep looking at these #covidnails of mine. 😅 I was THRILLED when I found out I was partnering with @_plumbeauty to try out their Complete Nail Care System! I haven't done my nails at home in over 7 years but it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

I’m giving away a Complete Nail Care System to one of you! All you have to do is FOLLOW @_plumbeauty , LIKE & COMMENT on this post and that’s it!

alyshanett OK be honest- how many of you are drinking enough water?? I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes I go all day without it and then have to drink a bunch at night before bed. I downloaded @plantnanny_us to give me a fun & creative way to remember to drink water. It sends a notification to my phone every so often reminding me to drink a glass and “water” my little e-plant. Right now I’m growing a sunflower & it SO CUTE. 🥺🌻 With everything that’s been going on, it’s nice to feel like I have control over this little thing in my life. More water means I feel better, look better, live better! The direct link to download this (free) app is in my bio AND stories. Use my code alyshagift when you register within 7 days and claim a free newbie gift pack! Check it out & let me know what plant you decide to grow. Mine is getting so big! # ad #PlantNanny2#GrowYourGlow
alyshanett Your anxiety is lying to you. You are strong and you are great. You can accomplish those dreams and the people around you would love to see it happen. You are not a burden, you are a blessing. You are good at what you do. Your anxiety tells you lies in your own voice- don’t listen. // words via @hidayahnicole :: FaceTime photos by @celinakenyon
alyshanett Wowwwwww someone sure did sleep in this morning. And by someone I mean me. I slept in like crazy and it felt SO. GOOD. 😴 Happy Sunday everyone. Is the weather nice enough where you are to get outside and feel the sun a bit?
alyshanett lost film from Bali 🌴 so happy i was able to get these developed yesterday. it’s really cool that my local film place is doing curbside service. I was able to drop these off without even going in the store THEN they uploaded the scans to a Dropbox for me! thank you @nelsonphotosupplies 🥺💚
alyshanett yesterday was as good of a Sunday that I could have asked for. 🌤 I’m feeling rested and ready for another week of whatever may come our way. special shout out to liquid blush & liquid highlighter for keeping me a low maintenance glowing goddess during this quarantine ✨✨🥰
