I had a blast with my friends looking at our future vehicles 🙂 A girl can dream and will!

Can you see me driving in this SUV?

Eid Mubarak. Happy Eid 🥳 Whew! We made it through another Ramadan. I honestly didn’t think that I’d be able to participate since the pandemic. We couldn’t go to the mosque or attend those lavish dinners. I wouldn’t be able to get my henna done or shop. At the beginning, I contemplated not participating at all. I had to drive back from Detroit to NYC because I was too scared to fly. I had to look for an apartment. I had a whole breakdown. Figuring out where my income was going to come. This Ramadan has been unique and challenging. I yearned for that spiritual connection. Tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone. So, I took it day by day. I didn’t fast the entire Ramadan, but on the days that I did I felt empowered. Enlightened. I listened to lectures. Prayed. Meditated. Stretched. No, I wasn’t the model Muslimah who was on time for all the prayers, fasted everyday, or didn’t slip up and cuss 😂 But I’m proud I got some things done. As I said in the start of Ramadan, this was never a race. We don’t get brownie points for outdoing another person. Religion. Spirituality is personal journey. No, I didn’t get to walk down the Islamic red carper this Eid, but I was able to get fresh air and sun. Listen to the prayer on YouTube. And break necks 😜 Whether you’re Muslim or not, I want you to know that I’m so proud of you. Don’t be discouraged to be a better version of yourself. No matter how others tell you how you aren’t doing it right. I was discouraged from being Muslim many of times by others. But, guess what? I’m still Muslim. Still a Hijabi. *Tongue pop* What have you gotten out of this Ramadan? And, for my non-Muslims, did y’all attempt to fast? Lastly, feel free to gas me 😜 Let’s chat. P.S.S. I now have an Amazon Wishlist for my Virtual Housewarming. #newyorkblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #fatphobia #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #selflove #goldenconfidence #modestfashion #ootd #womenempowerment #beautybloggers #eidmubarak #eid #blackouteid
