This is a body positive blog!

All the things I like or find interesting. I believe that every person deserves to be treated with respect regardless or their size, sex, gender, race or ability.

I also enjoy novels, graphic novels/comics, movies, throwbacks from the 80's and (1980 and 1880) fabulousness and many things nerdy.

Bookshy: Must Own, Must Read: The Aya Series by Marguerite Abouet and Clément Oubrerie »

There are some authors whose works I really must own and must read. One of them is the Aya series written by  Marguerite Abouet and illustrated by Clément OubrerieThe original six were published by Gallimardbetween 2005 and 2010,  with English versions published by Drawn & Quarterly between 2007 and 2013. D&Q published the first three volumes, and then a reworked edition with the first three volumes in one (Life in Yop City) and another with the last three volumes (Love in Yop City).Aya tells the story of its 19-year old heroine, the studious and clear-sightd Aya, her easy-going friends Adjoua and Bintou and their meddling neighbours and relatives.

nashpikl said: Hi there. I just wanted to say you look awesome in your pineapple dress.... I LOVE girls who wear a dress with Chucks (i have a closet full of chucks myself) I hope you are having the best day ever!!!

Thanks! Chucks are my old standby! I also want to invest in different colors, but my feet are weird so I have to actually try them on before purchasing even though the sizing is the same. Do you own any of the knee high ones? I want to get some so bad!  I hope you are having an even better day!!

this makes me think of a convo with a friend the other night about seeking validation that harm occurred from the one(s) who harmed you (in this case i was talking about my relationship with my parents, mostly my mother.)

"seeking validation that harm occurred from the one(s) who harmed you."

I still think about this all the time

Well, that’s deeply unsettling.

Whenever I see black folks desperately vying for white validation….
