Nissi’s Birthday Weekend (The Master Post!)
My birthday weekend was so amazing. I am truly blessed to have friends and family that were so devoted to showing me they cared about me! So here is a run down of my special day :)
Went to dinner with an amazing group of my closest friends! I was able to find great vegan noms and just enjoy my night. I made them all party favors/ grown up Easter baskets
This was what was inside! Clearly I was trying to turn up lol
Went to the club, rollin deep with some of the most important and beautiful women in my life! I really loved my dress and apparently so did everyone else! lol I felt like a star because my friends helped me get glammed up. Shit was too live that night!
We got home at 5:17am and still managed to get out of bed for church! It was an amazing service and we had fun going to brunch afterwards. Food was so good we caught the itis and had to sleep it off lol
Finally, we ended Sunday night at an amazing restaurant. The drinks were amazing and I really just enjoyed spending time with these beautiful women.
The food was AMAZING and we had too much fun! If you’re ever in NY please check out Buddahkan. Literally, my new favorite spot.
And if you know me, I couldn’t end this without giving a special portion to my Teddy :)
For my birthday he gave me a copy of “Revolutionary Suicide” and wrote me the sweetest letter ever, as well as wrote me poetry.
This week, my Teddy saw me almost every day, sacrificing time and energy just to make me smile. On my birthday he met and charmed my mother and my friends and they all thought he was as wonderful as I do. His gift to me showed me that he understands my mind, my passion and my heart. His dedication to me and those I care about made me so happy and feel so special. I really really appreciate him and words cannot express how he made my birthday memorable. Showering me with kisses and affection, he really made my weekend amazing!
Happy birthday to me!
Ladies of DiSTinction, even when we turn up. Oooooo-oop!
Happy birthday to me!
The beautiful ladies that helped me bring my birthday in right! I welcomed 24 surrounded by love family and friendship. I’m so blessed I could burst!

Aw thank you Nonny! I actually posted the picture before and it got like -2 notes lol
But as long as you like my face, then that’s all that matters :)
Me and my gorgeous cousins. They are my best friends, my sisters, my hearts. Celebrating my cousins birthday all together was a blessing. And although we got too live (birthday girl currently barfing her guts out :( ) I had so much fun. Turn up doesn’t even begin to explain it lol.
Happy Founder’s Day Sorors! 100 years of Excellence in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
On this day we celebrate not only our illustrious 22 founders, but our century of sisterhood, scholarship and service. I will forever be grateful to Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. for its role in molding me into the woman I am today. Above all else, my sorority stands for public service, political activism and community uplift and I am proud to be in the company of thousands of women that have this same focus.
I am happy to be in DC, with the same excitement for Delta I felt when I crossed the burning sands into Delta land.
OOOOOO-OOP My Sorors! My Sweet Sweet Sorors!
I’d be lying if I said I really gave a shit about fitspo-each to their own. I just have to say-for the purposes of illumination- that the issue lies not the joy of movement or glorying in your physical being et al.
It lies in the framing (and construction) of the idea(l) of fitness.
Exactly. And that ideal is ALWAYS a skinny person.
NOT here for that bullshit.
Not at all.
Really, though? Now encouraging people to exercise and set goals and achieve them and feel good about themselves and all of that is bad?
Everyone should learn and be able to love and value themselves as they are. However, it is a poisonous message to send that one should be okay with everything about their self and not seek to change. Everyone needs to change. Every has many changes to make. What exactly is the purpose of trumpeting the cause of obstinately refusing to strive for positive changes simply as some sort of misdirected “finger to the man”?
And if you’re not interested in being fit and following the fitness lifestyle, fine. You know: ignore fitspo. But to be actively against it as if it were some sort of cause? That’s counterproductive on so many levels.
By the way, looking for a positive fitspo blog that doesn’t fat-shame or body-shame? http://justthroughthelookingglass.tumblr.com/
aw thanks for the shout out! i really work hard so that my fitspo is about healthy living and healthy body image, not about a specific body shape or ideal of beauty!
End of a wonderful Christmas day.
Started off with a special moment with a special some one.
Then I surprised my mom with a Christmas surprise…
Then I ate until I fell asleep.
Then I went to spend the day with my cousins and aunts.
Then we ate until we fell asleep lol.
My family is crazy. And I have to love them. That’s the lesson at the end of the day.
Now I’m home and feeling blessed.
As you can see from my eyes, I’m too tired to even smile.
Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you enjoyed your Christmas day :)
Guess who started her Christmas day with a kiss under the mistletoe!!!
Awkward Nissi is awkward, but happy!
This day just keeps getting better
Nissi, how was your (non) date tonight?
All smiles and I can’t wait until the next time we get to spend time together. He’s really special guys.
This arch and this day (Dec 15th) will always hold a special place in my heart.
