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.

Eid16

 

Eid Prayer was early, early in the morning. I borrowed this amazing hijab (head scarf) from my friend. I’m not sure the exact color name, but I called it burnt orange or pumpkin.

Eid11

 

Ahhh, no make-up on….Well at least no foundation. I felt a little naked.

I don’t know if anyone noticed but I am trying to take over the world. All my life I have been bursting with creative energy and never allowed to explore it. I just turned 26, I have all types of issues ranging from my job and etc. etc. etc. But I am on a mission. I have seen too many things that I must attempt to have. I have three goals. To be a happy and good person. To be a writer. To be in the fashion industry. This is my journey…

These are photos taken with a cell phone. No edits. Yes, I am that fine. And yes, Madinah beat my face to a pulp. The theme for this shoot was “Color Explosion”.

So I had this idea. I said, “let’s model walk into the camera.” We did. This was the first shot. Epic. We slay!

Eid3I had too much fun with my friends and family during our holiday. My mind wasn’t on work, or school, or chores, or any pressures of life. I just got dressed and enjoyed myself. I hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as I had fun snapping them.

It is the Islamic holiday, Ramadan, where Muslims are to fast (refrain from water, food, backbiting, and anything else bad) from dawn to dusk. It is day three, and I am going strong! I feel great and look good (as always). I found this dress from like four years ago in my closet. I got it from Dots Fashions and it still looks good. And better yet, I can fit it!

Ab1

 

The pink scarf I got from an Iraqi lady I worked with a few years ago. She got it from Iraq. The gray cardigan is also a few years old; I think I may have gotten it from Burlington Coat Factory or Dots.

Ab2My friend said I looked sneaky in these pics. I don’t see it 🙂

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
