Morning Ink is a personal style/expat blog. I’ve noticed that my body type and ethnicity is underrepresented in the style and fashion world, and I wish to promote the inclusion of more body diversity among bloggers.

I recently moved from Houston, Texas to Cologne, Germany to pursue my master’s degree in English. I’m terrified. In the meantime, I play guitar, collect Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone books and spend my free time trying to rap as fast as George Watsky.

I do not currently use affiliate links, and any sponsors and courtesy items are clearly stated in the blog post or under my “Sponsors” section.

  • Hi Leah!

    I want to say thank you so much for your kind words and well wishes, and also your understanding/sympathy regarding me not being able to do Fancy Friday. I’m just stopping by to update you in advance as I couldn’t last time, I’m a lot better but unfortunately still not well enough to be up and about so much so FF on my side will have to be postponed again. I’m so sorry about that and am super grateful for all your support and participation so far, I had hoped to have it going again this week and do a double feature to include the pics you lovely ladies did last week too, so set this morning as my ‘goal’ to see how I felt but I doubt I’ll be better enough by tomorrow morning… Getting there though!

    All the best and warmest regards

    Dolly 🙂
