So we headed down to the A for the weekend for a baby shower and to catch up with some good company. Susu (above), an up and coming designer and great friend, showed us an awesome time. She is actually wearing one of her custom made pieces.

Ruquyah, the mother to be, had an African inspired theme for her shower.

My bud, Laila, is rocking her basics with a touch of color and gold accents.

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.
