Got an email from Idakoos wanting to send me a customized hoodie. I am in love with hoodies. So warm and snuggly. And it being customized was even better.

It took me a long time to come up with something to put on the front. I’m a writer. This should be easy for me, right? There was so many things I wanted to say, but I wanted the hoodie to reflect who I am to the person whose reading it.

Since hashtags are trendy, I stared with those.

#Curvy

#Black

#Hijabi

Killen’ The Game.

I chose these words because they are who I am. And frankly, I am a quite unapologetic about each one. I’m curvy, so there is a stigma that I’m lazy or unhealthy. I am Black, so I am ghetto or poor. I am Muslim, so I am oppressed or a terrorist. I can be all of those words and be none of the stigmas attached. So I put the last phrase on there to solidify it all. I kill the game, which means I am confident in my abilities to go above and beyond. So boom!

The Idakoos sweater was easy to create and shipped pretty fast. The material is heavy duty and the inside is warm and soft. You have the option to buy one or 100+ Definitely check them out.

My wondrous trip to Mexico City via @aeromexico is coming to an end. Although, I wish I could stay longer, I feel reenergized and ready to tackle life. It’s been a long time since I’ve truly had some time like this and I’m super grateful, even if it was for a few days. I’m gonna drop a whole vlog about my trip that I hope y’all will enjoy. I was just thinking how I wouldn’t be able to have an opportunity like this if I hadn’t decided years ago that I would stop being afraid and just do that shit anyway, despite being in a tense relationship and community. If I had listened to people tell me I was too fat to model, if I had listened to people tell me that I couldn’t tell my story because I’d make Muslims look bad and embarrass myself, had I listened to the media who constantly perpetuates how large bodies, how Black bodies, how Muslim bodies and other marginalized folks ain’t deserving, had I listened and allowed myself to succumb to fear and my own self-abuse, I would not be here right now. You may not like me. Like what I do. Or what I say or how I do things. But, for one thing you will respect the grind. You will respect me not giving af how dumb I look. Or how I had to claw my way to still be standing. Nothing I have has come easy, but still I dance and enjoy life with all of my jiggles and baggage. So when you feel like giving up, life is too hard and too much, I want you to remember this and keep going anyway. What have you struggled with to overcome that we have not seen you endure or struggle with? What advice would you give someone who is in the thick of a struggle? Let’s chat. *P.S. How y’all like my Peggy Bundy/Fran Drescher outfit? 😂😂 #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #wiw #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #newyorkblogger #selflove #streetstyle #goldenconfidence #dancevideos #animalprint #travelblogger #mexicocity
