Quotes

Sarah’s quote

  • Get closer to the people in your life by being the best mess possible.
  • London-based author and blogger Chidera Eggerue, aka The Slumflower, is tired of chasing perfection, so she’s … just stopped doing that.
  • As she puts it, “Everybody essentially is going to be messy forever, [so] I’m trying to be the best mess. I’m trying to be like, Mm-hmm, my hair’s a bit tangled, but I like this hairstyle. You know my shoes are a bit tight? I like these shoes. One of the diamanté bits on my dress is falling off, but I like this dress.”

Jade’s quote

“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously”
