" i have a headache"

Go take parecetamol you will feel better

" I feel dizzy"

Here drink some water..........do you feel better?

1,2,3 and I'm down welcome to story of the life with an invisible disease

it was August 2002, I remember it as It was a clear summer day, I was about to start in 3rd grade, little did I know it was the last day before something life changing was going to happend,

the school bell rand and it was time for me to go out and play I went to my back back to grab my fruit for a snack it was an orange, my mom pack me and orange that day. the bell rang and it was time to go in I felt this weird feeling in my body something strange some kind of dizzyness things started to get blurry so I went over to the window in the classroom and just just stared out of it hoping the fresh air would help being a silly kid.

"I felt my teacher grab my hand" Binta is everything alright,

I just looked a her I couldn't answer her there was thins tingling coloring that was happening around my eye I was scared I thought I was going blind or dying, she touched my wrist and sat me down at one of the bench we had in the class room and handed me a glass of water, I took a zip 3,2,1

and I was on the floor... everything went dark

they said it was a minute or so but it felt like hours I saw teeny tiny glimpse

suddenly there was my mom, the school nurse, and some of my classmates,

my body wouldnt stop shaking, spit wouldnt stop coming out of my mouth

I heard someone say she has epilepsy, I have what?

came. to my mind the sound of the ambulance sirens came someone picked me up and took me on a bed all I wanted was a grab from my mom tears were falling down my face what was going on

all I could here was sound and people shouting everything started to get dark.

this was my invisible disease


when I first found out that I was diagnosed with epilepsy I was to young to even understand how to deal with such a thing, as child ever 6 month meant blood test and doctor visit, Ive had over a dozen of seizures, if one medication didn't work it was back to changing to another one head scans after another, In elementary school and middle school I was often unfortunate and got seizures very often I could wake up and get ready for school and I would have a seizure and not be able to go, the doctors used to call me one of the lucky ones even though I go have epilepsy I am fortunate enough that I know what causes my triggers not everyone gets to be that fortunate, thats why I never take anything or any opritunity I get in my life for granted, I got to travel to the USA I got so many beautiful things out of that oprutunity that I am forever grateful for. I got to go to Washington , New York and see a play on broadway thing I never dreamed would happend to me and now I am less than a year away from graduating as I am crying as i am making this post I want you guys to know, that if you put your heart and soul into whatever you want to do there is nothing or no-one stopping you from acheving your goal.

"Everyday Is a battle for me but its and invisible battle but if I let that get in the way of my life I wouldnt be living"

"my dress / jeans cannot be the cause for pollution or dirty cleaning water," "I buy expensive stuff, they are quality made,"

thats what you would think but when the fashion industry is the second most polluter next to the oil industry oil. do I actually have to repeat this I was in so much shock and despair the day I found this out and the truth is its not about just clicking that button and donating to a company that says they are sustainable, its about taking charge you might be thinking omg is this girl for real or omg yea I actually want to do this but the future of not only fashion and our planet is in our hand being sustainable doesn't have to be hard and being sustainable doesn't mean that you have to war ugly clothes trust me its about being cautious of what you are buying into and what you are feeding into, especially if you get the opportunity to do so, because its not only about trends this multi billon industry is part of polluting Mother Earth that we live on think first then act ask the questions that needs to be asked

1, who made your clothes?

2. what are the company ethics policy in every genre?

3. are they sustainable or do they just want you to think they are sustainable?

4. what materials do they use? key key !

5. every company usually has a list of their ethics, knowledge is key.

6. Dont throw away old clothes or just becuase they have a tiny rip make them into DIY upcycle is the new couture

The revolution is now!

and if you do have Netflix pretty please with cherry on top I strongly recommend this documentary watch it its so mindful.

The true cost

I have been dreading writing this post reason being I didn't know how to write these words onto a blog post, and I didn't know if anyone would even understand where I am coming from with this. I guess it was the fact that I was tired of people using Trump as an excuse for a lot of things that happend in the world, he is the elective president of the United States and that was a public election where they got to vote,

but thats not really the point my point with this post is. that ever since Trump got elected, it has been this man hunt against him trump is a islamophobe , trump is a racist trump is a bad guy, which by look at the things you see trough social media and what he has said during his election I would say are pretty close to true, but I don't want to get to political here.

it is just that, the wrath that he faced was weird in someway because, it was from the whole world, and believe it or not we are surrounded by islamophes, racist , bad people and ignorant people everyday. and I just think Trump got it bad becuase he is a public figure, I am not a citizen of america so unfortunately I can't do anything when it comes to who I would vote for but when it comes to spreading stories on my platform to build a brighter future I can at least do that, so trump may be a islamophe, a racist, women hater who builds walls I dont know thats what an article said, but that doesn't change the fact of the countless racist and islamaphobic things that has happend years before we all even knew Donald Trump was going to run for the president of the United States,

Barack Obama once said

WE ARE NOT ONLY CITIZENS OF AMERICA BUT WE ARE CITIZENS OF THE WORLD

always be kind and stay humble no matter the situation

Love Trumps hate

Skrevet i : Binta Talks, LOOKBOOK

my favorite colour has always been bright colors I just love orange I think its a colour that had actually been underestimated for its brightness I guess a lot of people tend to lean towards colors such as black and white as a safe choice and red and yellows orange is more to bright summery colors, you guys get where I'm going with this, but hey wear whatever you want, my top is from asos btw well it was a dress I cut into a little because I was picky me and didn't like how the design looked when it came so I made some adjustments, but its not to shabby now :).

have a good one

-Binta

ps. whats your favorite color :)

a couple of weeks ago i was in my lecture sitting and we had to discuss of disseration topics the dissertation is this final huge paper you do in your third year of uni before you graduate if you have hons degree, anyway, i was proposing some topics and ideas i had to my teacher one of them was regarding how, i felt that if a person choses to dress modestly this becomes looked at as less sexy or attractive through our society, i wanted to compare it to the incident that happend with a women that was forced to remove her clothes on a beach in france, and what was suprislingly to me the most was the way my teacher reacted to this, almost making exuses and saying stuff like well there are different rules in france and that has to do with france law, but i started to think does it though, becuase me as a woman wheter i was practicing a religion or not i want to wear whatever i want and be comfertable in my own skin and not feel like an object.. i started thinking about who got to decided what a woman should wear and what sexy and not sexy, when the woman is not comfertable to chose herself becuase she is a constant target of being juged wheter she is modest or not.

if she is modest she not sexy any if she is naked she is a sex symbol


so where is the line?

sort of missing snow right now

Studying can seem like the most exhausting thing ever I mean I am not just writing a post right now where it seems like I am pretending to not complain but the truth is its not easy, but nothing good in life is, am i right or maybe am wrong oh well, any whom that doesn't mean you should feel depressed or down or sad because in uni your suppose to be independent, your suppose to rely on yourself and that can be a good thing but we all need someone.

so here is my study abroad guide

STAY ORGANISED

make sure you know when and where to be, don't rely on other peoples fifth word, its a key thing this doesn't make you a geek it just makes you a organized person, people like that.

Stress Don't stress yourself out when you haven't even looked at a brief yet walking around given yourself a panic attack about something that is weeks away, 1 read the assignment you were given and take it from there.

Stay hydrated

I cannot tell how important it is to have enough water in you drink drink drink water trust me you will feel a lot better

Cut the crap

I mean seriously eat less junk food have an apple instead of crisps you'll feel like working the whole day

Mental Health

taking care of yourself is really important and also knowing when to take a setback and say no, even if it is to a friend and in uni this is hard at times because you always want to be social but also want to focus on your work but mental health is something that is usually just brushed aside, which is also important to take care of, and know when to say no and take a break, just go for a 20 minute walk or a whole day at the beach just do it

hobby

a hobby can always be amazing to have I love to work on my blog and my photography skills


Enjoy

most importantly enjoy your uni experience no matter how you do it just soak In everything its a once in a lifetime thing

i am currently in a production of garments but I will try to post a new blog pos every Sunday as a weekly update
