My bestie came all the way from Minnesota to celebrate with us for our Islamic holiday.

I am really loving black lipstick. I kind of want to wear it everyday now.

So I got this pink dress from Ashley Stewart on the clearance rack!

The pink and white scarf and the shades are from Forever 21.

The pics are kind of dark but you get the picture.

I have a lot of fun with my fashion. Since it’s fall it’s time to start working those layered looks.

I was in love with my goth chic outfit for that evening. The dress is from Forever 21 and I paired it with a lace up boot and a turban.

Here to brighten up your Sunday timeline with lewks and a story 🙋🏾‍♀️ On Friday, I was about ready to run away from it all. Emails. Folks messaging me with nonsense. Having to deal with book tour stuff. I was irritable and didn’t want people talking to or looking at me. I took a good ole depression nap and woke up with such a bad headache. “I’m leaving!” I told myself. I started looking up rental cars to go somewhere, anywhere. But no rentals were available. I slammed the laptop, wondering how the hell I was going to get away with no whip. The next day, I told myself that I wasn’t going to do any work or social media for 24 hours (we gonna start small. It’s hard 🤷🏽‍♀️). And that all of the work can wait. I asked me, “what would you like to do today?” I took an almost 2-hour train ride by myself to Coney Island and with my rolling luggage, I created editorial images in the amusement park, I ate chicken fingers and fried Oreos, I got my fat ass on not one but three scary rides (I’ll make a post later about how to navigate amusement parks as a fat person). One was a rollercoaster, bitch, that almost took my hijab straight off 😂 I took my shoes off and walked on the beach. I watched the sunset. I found a random party on the boardwalk, parked my luggage, and danced with strangers. I’m proud of myself because I get anxious going places I’ve never been alone. But I did it anyway. I had fun. I was spontaneous. I went on an adventure. And was my own company. Have you ever felt the need to just “run away”? What do you do when you are just overstimulated and overwhelmed? What solo adventures have you embarked on? Let’s chat. P.S. Can’t wait to show y’all these fire pics! #newyorkblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #selflove #goldenconfidence #wamfam #editorial #hijabi #beautyblogger #covergirl #monochromatic
