QotD - CLEO WADE

Cleo Wade via Instagram
I gravitate strongly towards words of wisdom passed down by our elders or historical figures. In comes Cleo Wade, far from old but perhaps on her way to becoming historical, whom I discovered on Instagram after constantly seeing her notes pop up as liked by people I follow. After going through her feed I needed to know more. Her namesake website describes her as a "poet, artist, and speaker working across mediums, creating empowering messages (she even created a billboard for New Orleans to mark the ten year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina) to provoke emotional responses from viewers, blending simplicity with positivity, femininity and arresting honesty" and I concur. So while like everyone else I take each new year to check in, I am doing so celebrating being weird and setting the intention to be my own hero.


p.s. Check out the love notes' she created for Harper's Bazaar last Valentine's Day as I am sure you will identify with one no matter what your relationship status! 

For a little style inspiration check out Into the Gloss' Top Shelf After dark series featuring Cleo.
