Rebel

By Posted on 2 min read 466 views

The word rebel takes on many different denotations. It could vary from noun to action. From being a person who defies mundane, normal standards to the action of rising in opposition to an established  government or ruler. Rebel “v” Apparel views this definition in two ways:

  • 1) “the act of releasing everything that does not serve you or holds you back: spiritually, emotionally, physically, politically, and socially”
  • 2) “the process of taking your power back”

Rebel “v” Apparel was created by Detroiter, Martissa Williams. Sitting at the intersections of being body positive, feminist, pro-black, LGBTQIA proud, and most importantly, self-love, Rebel “v” Apparel was born. RVA was created with intent to aid the change in group consciousness around the meaning of being woman despite her ethnicity, size, orientation, socioeconomic status, sexuality, spirituality, etc. Martissa prides herself in having extensive detail incorporating diversity into the brand and producing sweatshop free garments; meaning that the people making the garments are making a fair wage and have access to proper healthcare.

RVA encourages people to be happy and accepting of everything about themselves, culture, being etc. In the brilliant words of Martissa, “the revolution is about understanding and loving self, accepting self, and embracing self and [through that], you can embrace everyone else through all their differences”. It is with pleasure that I was fortunate enough to receive this crop top and with pride, I wear my rebel shirt because if you’re going to be a rebel, you do it with a purpose.

When you promised yourself you’d go on a strict intermittent fasting diet but you can’t put down the sweets 🥴⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I haven’t consistently been to the gym in over a year. But quarantine fasho put a screeching halt to any physical alternative activities I could’ve been doing in the absence of the gym... like twerking in clubs. Dancing in streets at a block party. And other random stuff.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I gained at least 20 pounds. To some, I look normal. To me; this is the biggest I’ve ever been and I’m extremely unrecognizable to ME. I plan to change up my diet and eat way less meat (never going vegan tho), drinking more detox and energizer teas, and picking up the slack with the help of @jabsgym_em. But if y’all have any reccs for appetite suppressants - like really good ones - be a pal and comment them down below. I’m sure we could all use the tip as the world prepares to “shutdown” again 😉

Dating in Detroit sucks. It’s already difficult to meet new people because, where the hell are they? What circles do they run in? What restaurants do they like to eat at? And by chance if you happen to like the same things, will that person you plan to bag even be there the same time as you? Let’s not forget to add on also running the risk of being catfished in real life because this mask stays ON 😭⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My dating journey this season hasn’t been pretty. It’s been pretty pitiful. That’s why I love that @bumble has made it super easy to date while safely socially distancing. There’s the video chat feature where you can go on your first virtual date and if you’re a woman you get to #makethefirstmove and start the conversation which I just love because it allows you to sort out the people you aren\'t interested in from the potential dating opportunities and we love to see that!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re ready to find out if you’re new date is quarantine material, #MakeTheFirstMove and download @bumble. #BumblePartner
