20150517_142241So let’s talk about my beat face for a sec. This green dramatic cut-crease was everything. Thanks Madinah 🙂

20150517_180228Jannah (in the middle) was the fashion and event coordinator for the expo. She invited me to speak about my personal style, catching good deals, and how to walk in any room and own it!

My lil sis, also named Jannah, came out to support. Like our ugly fake laughs? Ha.

20150517_153740My fashionable friend, Cassy, also came out to support! Love her dress.

I met Etta and Jennifer last year at a natural hair event at WSU. They were really tall and boisterous. Not to mention their hair was super dope. I met them again at the restaurant they own, Sweet Potato Sensations, in Redford. Months went by…

One day, Etta asked me if I’d be interested in doing a “headwrapping” session at their event. Hellz yeah! I replied. When and Where?

When I tell you these ladies showed out…they showed out! Many of the women packed into the room, wanting to know everything about turbans and how to tie them.

So not only was I able to teach the ladies about turbans, but I also got to speak on the style and fashion panel.

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.
