Downtown Detroit

I heard about Hour Detroit’s Best Dressed for two years in a row and somehow never got a chance to attend. I called Somerset. I emailed and even called Hour Magazine. And no response. Maybe it wasn’t meant to be, I thought. Finally, a few days before the event, their PR firm contacted me with a press pass. I was ecstatic.

I felt like an all black dress would’ve been too blah…I wanted to make a splash at the event. I decided what better color to wear: red!

Hawt like fire.

Explosive like lava.

Spicy like peppers.

I adore this photo. It says curvy fashionista conquers the world.

By the way: hat and sunnies from Forever 21, neck piece from Burlington, and belt was from Rainbow Clothing.

Close-up. Tried new foundation from Lancome. Lipstick by Kat Von D. No, Madinah didn’t beat my face. I had to do it all by my lonesome. My wing liner is getting a little better.

Y’all get the beat face Leah V and y’all gonna get the haven’t washed up, dry faced, sick af Leah V, too. Life isn’t always glamorous. It’s very interesting how alone I feel when I get super sick. This is my second time being sick. My immune system has failed me. I had run out of groceries and medicine and was depressed about not having anyone to go to the store for me. I wished I was back in my hometown. At least I had my people. I also have a hard time asking for help because I don’t like bothering or owing people. On top of feeling lonely, I was supposed to use this weekend to catch up on work, but because my head is pounding and I can’t sit or stand for more than a few minutes, I have been stuck in bed. I feel lazy. I don’t feel beautiful. I don’t feel accomplished. I feel much bigger than I am. My body hurts. I’m nitpicking about my face. And, I feel as though I should be strong enough to force myself to work even through the pain. When I should be allowing myself to rest and ask for help. But, when you’ve been on your own for so long. When you’ve been the only person you can count and depend on, you kinda fall into the trap of maintaining the walls you’ve built around yourself. There’s a price to pay for being vulnerable and visible and strong. Do you have a hard time asking for help, why or why not? When do you find yourself most lonely? Also, send healing vibes and prayers and cold remedies and funny sayings to lift my spirits.
