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.

Y’all know I like to dance. For me, dancing is such a major form of body positivity. Especially because once I started gaining the majority of my weight, I swore off dancing in public because of my massive wiggles and jiggles. I didn’t want people to judge me, stare at the blob dropping it like it’s hot. One day, I decided to dance again. Just as unapologetically as the other girls on the dance floor. I decided to go dancing while in LA during my trip. I’m walking around the venue scoping out the scene, in search of the hypest dancers. I see a big girl, a fat girl in a group with her thinner counterparts all dressed in bodycon dresses. The plus-size gal was modest and wore a faux fur vest. She wasn’t dancing, either. I made my way to her at once, tapped her on the shoulder, and said, “I love the way you rock that vest.” She looked over her shoulder with surprise, shock. So, I said it again. Her eyes widened and the biggest smile ran across her big cheeks. The fat friend. I was the fat friend. I am the fat friend. Who was picked over in a group of thinner women to be hit on, to be asked out, to be complimented. Invisible was what I felt like. A compliment goes a long way for marginalized bodies from very big to very thin. Have you ever felt invisible or the odd one around a certain group of friends or felt insecure? Also, do you compliment others? When’s the last time you’ve received a compliment? Any body type can chime in.
