So happy to finally share this amazing filter for @southasiaarchive designed by me and created by my lovely friend and AR artist @jnnyyoo. So much of my work with this archive is about unpacking how rituals of adornment are embedded in our DNA and provide us with identity and community. My style has always been informed by my first generation confusion and my  innate and urgent knowing that choosing how I decorate myself can also be a path to healing, especially in my diasporic displacement. The modern Desi girl! Thank you @jnnyyoo for bringing my vision to life!! Swipe to see my favorite South Asian beauties in it!! How to get this filter: 1. Follow @jnnyyoo and @southasiaarchive then check your IG filters 2. Swipe up on my story 3. Try the link in my bio!!! Tag us in ur posts so we can see all u cuties!!!!

Happy Earth Day!!! 🌍🌻🧡 I moved to California in 2016 and everyday I still wake up in awe that I get to live in a place that pushes me to heal and grow and allowed me to feel at home for the first time in my life - and so much of that is attributed to how accessible nature is here. Being close to the ocean, mountains, desert, and sunshine in LA instead of watching rats and pigeons fight over dollar slices of pizza on the subway in New York really changed my life in unimaginable ways. Anyway tune in to my @nts_radio show tomorrow 4/23 at 5PM for a special playlist dedicated to our sexy planet🍓

Thinking a lot this week about community and how we can show up for each other in real, tangible ways and hold each other accountable to facilitate some healing instead of letting the cycle of trauma and abuse continue amongst ourselves. Thinking a lot about how grateful I am to be able to learn from my mistakes and be surrounded by people who enable my growth. Thinking a lot about how all that matters to me is honesty, vulnerability, getting my friends paid, becoming a better person everyday, and loving freely. 💒✨

My first @nts_radio show of the year is the sexiest mix recorded in one take for my favorite day of the year - Valentine’s Day. FOREPLAY is 40 minutes of love songs made by women/femme DJs, singers, rappers, writers, etc opening with Audre Lorde’s Uses Of The Erotic and ending with my favorite June Jordan poem as read by @iamkelseylu with everything from Christina Aguilera to Kash Doll in between. Curated to embody the complex ways in which we express our love and sexuality as women and femmes. Tune in at 5PM LA 8PM NYC 1AM LONDON to listen 🤸🏽‍♀️💜

This year in no particular order: near death car accident, 16 hour work days for weeks on end, flewed out my whole family all expenseses paid for Diwali, quit my job, 🌟’d in my first Nike campaign, credit score went up 100 points, conceptualized + directed + executed an iconic shoe collection for thick girls, paid alotta people’s bills, facilitated alotta people’s successes, proved alotta people wrong, ate lavish meals with loved ones, cried a whole lotta tears, spent 10 days alone in Bali, hit rock bottom emotionally and struggled with my self esteem, realized beauty isn’t an accomplishment nor do i owe it to anyone, allowed myself to appreciate the generous, loyal, and complicated woman that i am, worked on becoming more humble + less arrogant, and did my best to not to be a crackhead!! 2018..you almost killed me but *tisha campbell voice* I’m still HERE!!! God, please take it easy on me in 2019 and send more miracles, more bags, more love, more sex (and maybe a husband), more gratitude, more self reflection, more sneakers, more vacations, more abundance, more oysters, more friends, more blessings and please keep broke men away from me 😇🙏🏽 Love, S 💜💸✨🤸🏽‍♀️💞🌟⛽️‼️💋🥂🧚🏽‍♀️ #zeynaskitchen✨

Day 1 in heaven. It feels surreal to be here, the most beautiful place I’ve ever had the privilege of stepping foot in. My eyes greedily feasting on the temples, the food, the flowers, the statues, the water, and the kindest people. I spent much of this year overworking myself, falling into deep depressive episodes, and dealing with chronic illness that no money or vices would fix. 5 days ago I decided that, at 27 years old, I would take my first real vacation and here I am - alone on this little island at the opposite corner of the world feeling peace like I have never known in my life. Ending the year in the jungles of Bali was the best gift I have ever given myself and I am overflowing with gratitude and wonder at how God will pull me out of the abyss time and time again to show me how much more there is left for me to learn.
