Zarinah set out to create a multicultural, interfaith expo where wrapping could be celebrated in its various forms all around the world.

My sister, Taahira, modeled she is getting her head wrapped by Fatima.

Head21I did a little head wrap of my own. You likey?

HeadThis pic is super dark. But my OOTD begins with a yellow blazer from Torrid, and the dress is like three years old from Dots Fashions. The accessories are from Rainbow and DEB’s. And the “Flinstone” necklace was a gift from a friend.

I must give my shoutouts to a few of the fashion team members and headwrap stylists that made this all happen: Madinah, Janeea, Laila, Huda, Taqwa, Jathiyah, Marketta, Jendayi, all the stylists, the designers, the floor models, and every volunteer. Great job you guys 🙂

I am my own worst critic. There’s many things that I loved that I stopped doing because I “wasn’t good enough”. Because what I looked like was “disgusting”. The things I wrote about would “disgrace” my family, my religion, myself. For five years, I didn’t do anything. And, resented the fact that I wasn’t living in my purpose. I was floating along life, mimicking what I thought people like me did. They didn’t model. They didn’t cuss. They made their husbands happy. They stayed out of the way. But, most of them were doormats. I chose to put it all out there. On the internets and become myself 😂🤣 There will always be critics. People who don’t read nothin you say or have no idea what you stand for but will look at your body and judge you based on that and that alone. The person in the next slide (swipe over) keeps referring to my body as “that” which means they don’t see my fat glory as human. He/she calls me disgusting. Calls me a disgrace. But, their profile pic says “Inspiration”. My body is my temple. I am a queen. I appreciate what my body does for me despite my size. Period! 👏🏾 And, a reminder for you if you are struggling with body hate—from yourself or others or society—your body is a grand temple. Adorn it. Hug it. Nourish it. In what ways do you overly criticized your self, your body? What advice would you give someone who is critical of their self? Let’s chat.
