Obese and still a good role model?


My peoplessss! I was a guest speaker on the radio podcast show, The Sum Up, last week! I was contacted by Shannon Boodram (who I've idolized for pretty much the last THREE YEARS!), whom you guys may know from the very popular blog-site and YouTube channel, Those Girls Are Wild. I've admired her for so long so when she contacted me about guest speaking on her and Mike Warren's show, I FLIPPED OUT.
(In other words, I said "HELL YEAH!")

I was called in to address the main topic of the News Anchor who felt like she was being attacked about her weight (WATCH HERE). The main question was: "Can you be obese and still be a good role model?"

Want to hear what I had to say? Then you have to listen to this episode! Lets just say, Shannon and I were slightly on opposites sides of the fence! Below, I've attached a picture of my new black spiked jacket from Forever 21 PLUS. They completely won me over with this jacket. If I could sleep in it, I would. It's definitely helping me as I transition into my obsession/love for all things black. Tell me what you think?

SPECIAL THANK YOU TO SHANNON AND MIKE FOR HAVING ME!
I had an amazing time.

Homage to my South Asian side: 2

"People will stare; make it worth their while."- Harry Winston

Every year, I make it a point to go out saree shopping. I absolutely LOVE the Indian sari. My motto is, when in doubt...buy a saree. It just works so well with all body types. You can never get too big for it or too small for it because of how it is made. Growing up with such a huge South Asian influence has truly made my perception of beauty very broad. The Indian culture has stood firm within my life since I was about 11 years old. So, I decided to pay homage (which I do at least once a year), by wearing one to my brother's wedding in New York last weekend. I expected that my sister and I would stick out like sore thumbs...America is nowhere NEAR as culturally diverse as we are. That's just the facts.

I chose my favorite colour, AGAIN. The teal and gold just went so well with my skin, I had to get it. Although many stares were evident, it felt good to be a means of culture and change on an amazing weekend. "Staring" for me is never a bad thing. I'm very use to it. Most times, people are admiring your beauty and courage. Never let a wandering eye be the reason you hold back your creativity. Who else can be better at being "you" than YOU? Let me know what you guys think!

My Saree is from Frontier in Brampton.

ARMY BRAT


 My loves! How is everything going? Hopefully all is well with everyone. I'm headed to New York tonight for my older brother's wedding. Before I leave, I wanted to show you guys this super cute zip-up that I got from my dad. First off, its pretty much as old as I am so I'm pretty privileged to even be wearing it. My Dad takes SUCH pride in his clothing (probably where I get it from), so him handing this down to me is a pretty big deal.

Lately, you would think that I was boycotting anything "matching". I've been mixing colours, textures and prints this whole summer. Well, now that Summer is over, it seems as though I still can't  let the pattern mixing go. Not many people would put a mens army jackets with floral pumps. Key words: "not many". But of course, Sasha would. And you know what....I don't think it was all that bad! I actually LOVE it. I got the black leggings from Urban Planet here in Toronto. I JUST came to the understanding that Urban Planet is making some of their clothing in plus sizes. I was absolutely SHOCKED when I walked in and saw leggings and hoodies in a 2X. Well, I bought a pair for 6 bucks and it has been the BEST 6 bucks spent in a LONG WHILE! So comfy. I definitely recommend!

Let me know what you think, family! Special LOVE-UP and welcome to our newest followers!!
PS. Get excited because OCTOBER means FOC Winter Scarves time!!
