Madinah planned on doing one last photo shoot for 2013. We both have learned so much about the fashion, photography, and makeup industry. So here are some photos that I styled.

I wanted to go for an edgy glamorous look that mixed prints and utilized pearls. The shades are from Forever 21 and the pearl necklace I purchased from VictoriousMe Online Boutique.

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.

Y’all get the beat face Leah V and y’all gonna get the haven’t washed up, dry faced, sick af Leah V, too. Life isn’t always glamorous. It’s very interesting how alone I feel when I get super sick. This is my second time being sick. My immune system has failed me. I had run out of groceries and medicine and was depressed about not having anyone to go to the store for me. I wished I was back in my hometown. At least I had my people. I also have a hard time asking for help because I don’t like bothering or owing people. On top of feeling lonely, I was supposed to use this weekend to catch up on work, but because my head is pounding and I can’t sit or stand for more than a few minutes, I have been stuck in bed. I feel lazy. I don’t feel beautiful. I don’t feel accomplished. I feel much bigger than I am. My body hurts. I’m nitpicking about my face. And, I feel as though I should be strong enough to force myself to work even through the pain. When I should be allowing myself to rest and ask for help. But, when you’ve been on your own for so long. When you’ve been the only person you can count and depend on, you kinda fall into the trap of maintaining the walls you’ve built around yourself. There’s a price to pay for being vulnerable and visible and strong. Do you have a hard time asking for help, why or why not? When do you find yourself most lonely? Also, send healing vibes and prayers and cold remedies and funny sayings to lift my spirits. Let’s chat. P.S. I should’ve know soup that has “skinny” in the title wasn’t gonna be appetizing 😂😭 #newyorkblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #wiw #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #selflove #goldenconfidence #beautyblogger #mentalhealthawareness #selfportrait #nofilter #acne
