Skinny Shaming Is A Real Thing

Let's get real today, many people seem to think that skinny shaming is acceptable. Suggesting certain women really need to get a pizza or a burger and eat the whole thing it is an unacceptable joke. People only hear about fat shaming but skinny shaming is a real problem too.

Body shaming
NounThe action or practice of humiliating someone by making mocking or critical comments about their body shape or size.

Don't get me wrong, I have had positive comments like I can pull of anything because I am skinny, that I could be a model and I have had girls tell me that they would kill to have my body however I have been asked how sad it is not having a big ass, I have been told that the wind will blow me away and that men do not want bones, they want curves (especially from the African community).

Congo To Global

Allow me to reintroduce myself, my name is Arielle Chrisnes Sikabwe and I am originally from Goma, D.R.Congo, fille de l'Est *wink*. I wanted to write this post in French since it is about a Congolese brand and Congo is a french speaking country but then the brand is CONGO TO GLOBAL and what is more global than english. 
Let me tell you a secret, I always wanted to own one of the Congo to Global clothing so I can represent my country. Whenever I saw a picture of someone wearing it on instagram I always told myself that I'd buy it, you can imagine the excitement and joy when they asked me to be their brand ambassador. This outfit is so comfy and you can wear it anywhere, for girls day out, airport outfit, when you want it casual or when you just want to relax at home. I am more of a heel person and that is why I rocked my outfits with heels, I kept it casual but classy. You can wear yours with anything, it can be sneakers, flip flops or heels just like me, it is your choice.
