The wait is over. I am finally blogging about my Black & Gold Birthday Soiree photos last month. Although it was stressful, we had a great time. I was even able to style the models above with wardrobe courtesy of Thrift on the Ave and Green and Glamorous. Thanks loves 🙂

This pose was very iffy. Scary actually. I’ve always had this complex about sitting down in photos. I’d tell people to never take photos of me while seated. To never post them. Chile, it was serious. It seemed like my whole body would morph into this huge ball, a blob of a body. There weren’t any straight lines and length or shape. All I saw was a round person. Laying down? Even worst. My chest seems to spill into the two inches of neck I have and it’s just a mess. For some reason, I saw this bright yellow couch at @bulletin.co where @blairimani had her very lovely book launch (shameless plug 😭). And, I was like I should lay on this. My friend was like yah, do it! And, then when it came time to actually do it, I became hesitant. Imma look like a damn blob, I thought. I’m gonna hate this photo. Other ppl will think I look like a blob, too. I got on the couch anyway and pretended to be one of those fancy ladies in those old paintings. Nude and round and confident in their skin. Sometimes, we get in our own way. We overthink how the world views us when we are truly projecting our own insecurities. I became my own worst critic but then rectified it by jumping in headfirst into my own insecurities. Just gotta do what makes you feel uncomfortable. Discomfort is growth, people! *Tongue pop* In what ways are you hindering yourself, being your own worst critic? Be honest. And, is there a pose or angle that you feel insecure about? Let’s chat.
