As you all can see this is my favorite stripped jacket from Torrid! I wear it all the time. Versatility.

My friend and I were enjoying sushi at Kabuki’s in Dearborn. Black and white with a pop of color. Classic style maneuver. And we are both wearing Ruby Woo from MAC.

Madinah planned on doing one last photo shoot for 2013. We both have learned so much about the fashion, photography, and makeup industry. So here are some photos that I styled.

I wanted to go for an edgy glamorous look that mixed prints and utilized pearls. The shades are from Forever 21 and the pearl necklace I purchased from VictoriousMe Online Boutique.

I couldn’t even post yesterday because I was over it. For a long time I racked my brain. What could I say that had meaning. Impact. How could I make someone else’s day better instead of dwelling in my own existential crisis? Nothing. I felt like giving up... Truth is, that sometimes I feel like I am living the lives of two or three very different people. There’s the internet persona. The IRL me. And, the me when I’m alone with my own thoughts. Sometimes they intersect and other times they fly in different directions, dragging me along. In 2013, I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. I felt as though I’d been branded. Where I came from, you just prayed your mental problems away. You just hid them. You dealt with it. Privately. Because having mental issues meant that something was wrong with you. Your faith was weak. I have these bouts where I have no clue who I am. I am floating. I am imbalanced. And on edge. Crying at any little thing. I look at photos of myself, cringe, and find the most hideous things to nitpick at. I feel like the hugest person in the room. I’m taking up too much space. I don’t deserve the things that I have. There’s this pressure on my chest, on my back to perform. Because that’s what everyone else does here. They perform. For likes. I’m sharing this because I know that in my current state, sharing my ugly non-IG worthy struggles with identity and mental illness will touch someone else. Someone else needs to hear this. That we ain’t all okay all the time and that’s okay. I’m sending you love. How does this confessional make you feel? Are you okay today or are you not okay? Let’s normalize conversations about mental illness. This is a safe space to chat ❤️ 📸 @awake.dreaming #detroitblogger #psootd #mentalhealth #instafashion #bodypositive #portraitphotography #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #fatacceptance #seventeen #queen #turbanista #honormycurves #bodydysmorphia #instabeauty #intersectionalfeminism #fashionblogger #sequindress #eatingdisorderrecovery #editorial #hijabi #modestfashion #selfcare #monochromatic #highfashion
