#CurvyGirlConfessions As much as I love my plus sized body, I’ve faced a major issue with getting good lingerie in my size. And even if I did get a good fit, the lack of design aesthetics was disheartening. Until I came across the TrueCurv range from @officialzivame. With ranges like Minimiser, Super Support and Sag Lift that tackle specific problems for the heavily endowed and have amazing design styles, I’m sold and how! I’m now a #ZivameWoman
*READ THIS* Oftentimes I’ve been told that I victimise myself, that I overthink, overdo, overreact- that these behavioural tendencies can change, that they’re only temporary, if only I changed myself. I’d always felt that I viewed people differently, empathised more, felt strongly, gave and stood by more fiercely as compared to what I’d ever received. And that made me question the base, the authenticity, the very existence of all my relations. Until I realised why I was different. Why I felt so overwhelmed at everything that happened around me, every little trigger that came my way. Also why I’d feel so strongly for my people and my causes. And sometimes it got so much that I’ve had to find ways to release the pain. I found out I am an HSP- Highly Sensitive Person. And that in turn brought in bouts of depression and a never ending chaos of anxiety. As much as I speak on social media, I find it difficult to address this with family or friends. And maybe that’s because I’m sick of hearing that it’s just another phase. I’m sick of people saying they understand me one minute and being insensitive the next. So I’ve tried and I try to deal with it in my own way- writing, singing, crying, releasing. But I try. As much as I want to give up at times, I promise myself 5 more minutes of sanity, and I try. And it helps. I’d urge you to do the same. Keep pushing yourself because no one else will fight for your life like you will. I’m here if you want to talk, obviously 🖤
READ THIS. Lately, I’ve just had so much I want to speak about and nothing I can speak about at the same time. Why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we hold things inside till the point that they become one jumbled mess you can’t unravel? Why is it that we face so much anxiety that even though we know we’re not at fault we can’t stop feeling like we are? What is this sudden breathlessness, this heavy weight on our chests? Sometimes I just wish we could let things out, watch them flow out of our systems and actually let go. How many of you’ll face anxiety? How many of you’ll talk about it? I’ve been feeling so much of it lately and I’d love to start a conversation. Let’s talk. In the comments below, or if you want to stay anonymous, DM me. 🖤
You won't get nightmares if you have something that haunts you every moment you're awake.
Don’t have a long flowy skirt or a pretty dupatta? Dig in deeper into your wardrobe and find a long flowy kurta. If you can’t find one, borrow one from those wedding sets that you’ve kept aside. I found this black flowy tunic that has front slits and paired it with high waist jeans. I found 2 chokers that I had bought 7 years ago while visiting my cousins in Ahmedabad and these silver hoops. A red lipstick later I was done 💁🏻❤️
For look 2, I fished through my closet for ANY dupatta I could find. I was lucky enough to find this bandhani work dupatta which is so vibrant! I used the dupatta to drape these pants which took me 3 minutes and a lot of safety pins. And because the pants were already so bright, I paired them with this loose light coloured crop top. I put on gold danglers, a gold choker and a gold bangle. Tada! 💁🏻
I don’t wear traditional clothes regularly, and hence I don’t really invest in them. Since Navratri is here, I want to show you girls how you can dress to dance with clothes already at home. 1.) Pick your hero piece. Go through your wardrobe and pick one piece that stands out. I picked this skirt that my nani had gifted to me years ago and paired it with a simple black t-shirt. 2.) Borrow. I borrowed the white dupatta from mom and held it together with the belt. 3.) Accessorize. I picked the most oxidised, vibrant necklace from my wardrobe that I could find. It’s as simple as that, y’all. I’m good to go ❤️
