A little pop of color | Naimah.A

Hello dolls
               I hope all is well wherever your beautiful souls are at. Today I’m sharing a very loved outfit that I wore on my Instagram story. So many people requested me to do a shoot wearing the same exact outfit and not too long after I did. I know spring is here but the weather in Columbus isn’t proving for that to be true at the moment (silent tear drop). I have been building my spring and summer wardrobe since early January. I find it best to shop early for upcoming season so I can save money and not pay full price for most items which are more likely to be cheaper in the winter. I bought this top from T.J. Maxx, and you know I love anything off the shoulders on a warm weathered day. The jeans I have on are from Gap and they’ve been with me for ages. I paired them with denim boots to top the look all off, and this look couldn’t be anymore simpler. I hope you guys enjoyed my post, Till next time XoXoXo.

90s babe | Naimah.A

Hello Dolls 

         I hope all is well wherever your beautiful souls are at. Today I bring you a post inspired by one of my favorite movies called Poetic Justice. With this specific hair style I get told often that I look like Janet Jackson-which is very flattering. I collaborated with @benhurayettey to bring this amazing visual together. I tried to recreate a few of the outfits Janet Jackson wore in the movie and a major staple would be high waisted jeans. I love high waisted jeans because they extentaute my figure and cinche in my waist. I find a crop to be more suitable with high waisted jeans, to give it a 90s vibe. To top this look all off I paired it with an all white FILE sneakers and for the accessory I wore these unique shades. I hope you guys like my 90s/poetic justice inspired look. Make sure you check out Ben’s instagram, till next time XoXoXo.

Body confidence | Naimah.A

Hello dolls

                    I hope all is well wherever your beautiful souls are at. I have reached a great mile stone not too long a go. I’ve had what’s been a mental and emotional journey when it comes to body confidence and today I’m here to share that with you. I’ve lost over 40 pounds in the last 7 months due to continuous exercise and a clean eating. I constantly told myself  I would be much happier if I lost 10 pounds and when I did I would aim for another 10 more. I understood that everything was a process but I wondered why mine wasn't going any faster. These are the kind of thoughts that drive women like me into an insecure position and constant self doubt. Instead of enjoying the process of weight loss I was moved out of fear. I wouldn't see results fast enough which has caused me to burn out and crash. After reevaluating my reasons I found a healthier and better way to go about weight loss journey. I became vegetarian after a long research process and have for over 6 months now. I narrowed the amount of time I spent in the gym to four days and only an hour session. In contrast to before I spent 6 days there and over an hour each day. I felt much better about my intake on food and the progression my body has been making. I definitely learned to trust the process and not to rush a master piece. I recently did a shoot with another talented local photographer who's helped me celebrate body confidence. His name is Mike but hes known as @mikeothe2. You should check his work I promise you it won't disappoint. I hope you guys enjoy these photo's and until next time Xoxo

Denim on Demin | Naimah.A.

Hello Dolls 

              I hope all is well where ever your beautiful souls are at. I haven’t updated my blog quite as often due to the fact that my life just got super busy. I’m learning to juggle new responsibilities in this new year which is a mix of fun and overwhelming pressure. Never the less I still always manage to do fun collaborations and shoots with awesome creatives in the local area. I’ve gotten the chance to shoot with Benhur who’s work honestly speaks for itself. I put together a Denim on Denim look which to me is one of the long lasting favorite trends of mine. I used to avoid this paring because of the fear of it being too uniformed and not fun. All that fear has come to rest after researching the classic style and the many ways it could be styled. Here’s my latest paring of Denim on Denim and I hope you enjoy the look. Make sure to go follow @Benhurayettey Instagram and check out all his amazing work. Till next time Xoxoxo

Happy New Years | Naimah.A.

                                                                           Hello Dolls

                       I'm so excited to finally be writing a New Year's post. As per usual every year has drastic ups and downs and I wouldn't trade my experiences for the world. 2017 was my "WHAT IF" year. I was constantly second guessing myself wondering if I was good enough, smart enough, strong enough for every situation I faced. I broke a lot of internal doubt in 2017 and embraced a new found courage within. I cut all my hair off so I can break my internalized beauty standards. I experimented with different hair styles and looks which helped me create a new sense of style. I got out of my comfort zone and  collaborated with different artists along the way. In 2017 I knocked down the walls of "WHAT IF" and found my inner courage all over again. I'm so excited to see what 2018 brings. I'm not a resolutions kinda girl but I will keep you posted on the growth and progress I make this time around next year. Life is too short and I want to live up each moment to the best of my abilities and I hope you do too. I hope you guys like this post till next time XOXO
