πŸ” via @inkedcurls: “This is a double #tbt for real!!!!! Year was 2001 and my senior class got a chance to go to the one of the hottest music shows out at the time…106 & Park, you know the good one with Free & A.J?! And come to our surprise AALIYAH was the guest of the day and she was premiering her newest single "We need a Resolution” off of her newest album AALIYAH
Did I forget to tell ya how much of a fan I am? Like really. I’m was obsessed with her (slightly still am) That the moment she sat down in front of me, touched my knee to help her sit and then apologized for touching me GIIIIIIIRRRRLLLL I almost died!!! I couldn’t contain myself but I did.
But then to hear of her passing shortly after that was just beyond heart breaking. I cried for a week, seriously! Even went to her funeral. But I thank God for the opportunity to be able to meet her. And smell her hair! That shit was shining from a mile away!!!! (Oh yeah and that’s me in the pink! And her right below me) #ripaaliyah #Aaliyah #FanForLife #BabyGirl#oneinamillion #aaliyahhaughton #aaliyahfans#aaliyahforever"

Reflecting on it all, 01’ was a horribly tragic year because 17 days later we were once again devastated on Sept 11. What we have is so precious and that is this day! Love it to the fullest! Live it to the fullest! And always respect, honor and revere Life! #TBT” | Such beautiful, deep words and an amazing photo! 😭😩❤ Thank you so much for sharing with us all! πŸ™πŸ’š

A big shout out to Katty a.k.a CameToGiveLove for sharing this with myself Aaliyah.PL for uploading this beautiful video. I can honestly say that I prefer this version more, as apposed to the other one which we are familiar with. I like how it has that acoustic feel. It's so simple and stripped back, that it really gives you the time to appreciate and admire Aaliyah's vocals within this amazing, breath taking track! Thank you so much for sharing with everyone! Peep the video below and enjoy!

This has truly made my day! You can peep the video below in full! One love

Aaliyah: 15th Anniversary Tribute

Drawing created by yours truly 

Day 25: Why You Miss Aaliyah #25DaysOfAaliyah ❤ My late tribute for the 15th anniversary πŸ™ŠπŸ’• With anything that I start I always like to finish it till the end. Everyday is an Aaliyah day for me too, so why should just one particular day be any different from the others? I sincerely apologise on being so busy for this 15th anniversary month. So for anyone who missed out on all the rares etc.. I shall be updating the site soon! 

I literally miss everything about Aaliyah as a person, entertainer and role model. She was the very first person whom I looked up to as a kid, and she taught me how to be the woman I am today. Guiding me through different scenarios of her songs which gave me answers without even realising it. She truly was the big sister that I had never had. 

Her balance of beauty, brains, confidence as well as her humbleness is what I miss most. There are very few people in this world like that nowadays. She was so well grounded and never once complained about anything. When I look at all these rare images which have come to surface, there is one thing in common which I have always noticed, and that’s Aaliyah’s big heart of gold and generosity. She was so kind and giving, not even expecting anything back in return. This is what made her different from the rest. 

The very fact that after 15 years, her influence is still around amongst both men/women as well as boys/girl, only proves at how legendary she truly was. You are dearly missed Babygirl. No days go by where I don’t think about what you would be doing, had you still been alive today. It was definitely not your time to go, but I hope you are smiling in the heavens above like this drawing. Because that’s the Aaliyah we all remember and love! #RIPAaliyah πŸ™πŸ’š

Aaliyah Archives: News


Greetings to all of #TeamAaliyah. It's been awhile since I've posted any of my personal collections, so as a little teaser... I thought I would share with you all a little treasure piece (amongst others) I was able to get into my possession! :D Throughout all the red carpet events, this is one of my favourites for many reasons (mostly her slayage of an outfit!) so it only felt right to have something personal and worth adding to the archives ;) 

I'm also excited to announce that I will be posting some little rare gem pieces on the 25th. We all know that particular day is a hard time for all us fans to deal with, so seeing anything rare or new related to Aaliyah, just makes that day more special and easier to cope with. 

This year will mark 15 years exactly (I still can't get over how time has flown by so quickly!) since our beloved Babygirl, transcended from the waking life, into the spiritual realm, however...we will hold on, stay strong... and instead of dwelling upon her passing, we shall remember and celebrate the 22 years of her LIFE which she humbly dedicated to us all.

Aaliyah Archives: News


On the 28th July 2013 marks exactly 3 years since I launched my Aaliyah site. πŸ™Š❤ It often feels longer, since I’ve come across the most amazing friends from #TeamAaliyah. But I would just like to thank all those who support my dedication and passion for an amazing woman who is dearly missed, and still remembered after 15 years. Before the site, I was going through a lot of trials and tribulations outside of the ‘social network’ realm, where some people like to thrive on negativity, not realising that there are much bigger issues in this world to be worrying about. The year I lost my Grandmother was the same year I decided to create #AaliyahArchives

Aaliyah was the only person whom I had (and still do) looked up to as a role model, and she truly was a 'positive motivating force within my life’. It was a way to channel and express myself through words, imagery as well as having a distraction to keep myself busy and responsible for something. To this very day I’m so grateful that all the hardwork and late nights were all worth it, and I wouldn’t change it for anything!

To celebrate this anniversary launch, the site address has now officially been named www.aaliyaharchives.com instead of theaaliyaharchives.blogspot.co.uk.  I thought long and hard about this, and felt it was the perfect time to make things more 'official', by having ownership of something which was created from scratch. Please note that older posts (including the old site name) will automatically redirect you to the new address. But for future reference for anyone who wishes to source anything, please refer to the new address as the main address. Thank you and one love! Peace!
