The Capitol Building

An Eid Celebration

SAM_2430For this Eid (Muslim holiday) I wanted to go for Maleficent meets Jon Snow. I ordered a grass green dress from Etsy and of course it didn’t fit. I freaked out. Then quickly ordered this lace one from F21. The crown, I got from Charming Charlie’s. My new fave accessories store.

I was the designated photographer for the day. I had to capture all the queens in their royal glory.

SAM_2443Here’s a close up of her turban styled by me. I loved her Sailor Moon inspired crown.

SAM_2389Lamiah’s color combo is appeasing to the eye. And check out the pearl belt detail.

SAM_2410I love playing around in turbans. I just made this one up.

SAM_2418My little sis also slayed in a mint and white color combo.

SAM_2391This photo screams confidence.

SAM_2402A close-up of her neck-piece. It’s all in the detail.

SAM_2421Shanni’s Arabian train was everything.

SAM_2445We all #Queen together.

SAM_2451Had to end the day with a few usies.

SAM_2457Hey there, beautiful.

Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History

Detroit, MI

I was invited to this expo by Carlotta the founder of the She Is Project and True Root Marketing. It was a day filled with panel discussions by PR and marketing women, fashion bloggers, and business minded people. The room was full of photographers, retail booths, and local bloggers all coming together for one purpose: empowerment.

I got a letter in the mail telling me that I no longer have health insurance. I need allergy shots. Glasses. My yearly physical. My monthly birth control pills. And I was going to enroll in therapy because I need it again. I did break down this morning. But, I will not allow life’s inconveniences to break me fully. But instead mold me. Because with hardship is ease. Because pain is temporary. Because things are falling apart for a reason, a grander scheme and I have to move with it or get crushed in the process. I arrived home last night, and my former roomie took me to get tacos. It was so nice to catch up. I explained to him the woes of moving from his cushy home. That it was a mistake to leave. Because I’ve been going through it. I told him that I’ve cried more in the last two months than I have in the last two years. He said, “When you first moved with me after your divorce, you were in a similar situation. You got through that. How can you get through this?” He was right. I had gotten through that. I thought back to what I did. I know I cried a lot. I beat myself up. Told myself that I should’ve been okay being abused emotionally and whatever else he was doing. That I deserved to be battered because I was a bar person. I also submerged myself into creating. Videos and makeup and stories and narrative and I posted all of that here. That’s how I wrote my whole book. The one that’s being published in October. It wasn’t about money or popularity. I was creating because it felt right. It gave me something to do. What has been that one thing that has always saved you in times of desperation? What’s your motto for when messed up things happen back to back?
