God,I LOVE the black church....

I grew up in some form of church in my life...
Grannys,Uncle Rev(I didnt know his name was Nate for years),a cousin,a friend,some kinda church....

Where else would you want to be on a sunday?
The only place you could get a GOOD laugh,and a inspiration for the rest of the week.

I partically live for the women of the church...

First of is the Mother of the church,an elderly woman...Prolly about 80yrs old who sits in the back,because she doesnt have to sit in the front anymore,and secondly so she can get to the ladies room fast.

Then there is 1st lady,a beautiful graceful woman who looks like she is in the church fashion show EVERY week,she sits in the front and gives her husband tha adoring i-still-run-this look...She has about 3-6kids,all well mannered,well dressed and well behaved(welp on sunday atleast)

Oh..of course there is the choir director....Yea I know he isnt a woman,but I mean...well you get my point.He has a color that is related to food every sunday "Oh not honey,Im not wearing yellow,Im wearing mustard"We all know the truth about his alternative lifestyle and his friend that he brings with him.....You better not say anything tho....
"He aint gay,he jus a lil sweet,thats a good wholesome boy"
...You cant tell granny you saw him at the club last night,because...I mean,what were YOU doing there?

Then there is the girl drummer.....You know the one with the cornrolls,or the ponytail....The one that plays basketball,and is always kinda lookin at you when you are ushering...
Need i say more?

One of my favorites is the gossip,you know sister such n such,she hasnt learned a lesson in those four walls since she wore bow bows and barretts....She keep enough stuff going "Welp I believe Brother _____ and Sis ___ doing a little more than bible study when he take her home on thursdays....."You wouldnt be able to stand the woman if she didnt make the BEST macaroni and cheese for the church potlucks!

Next on deck is the church runner,the lady who starts running and "thankin Jebus" for getting her out of bed...The woman who is running thru the pulpit when 'Passa' is tryin to preach the sermon....The one who should have cross trainers on for the laps she takes around the church....And at the revival when the sister church comes you have to carry her out because she is REALLY cutting up for guest....You always feel bad for her kids because you know they are soooo embrassed!

You have to love the annoucement lady,
The Missionary committee,
The womens group,
& The scholarship committee,

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

The Normal Ones...

So of course every good blogger has these super glam photos posted on their blogs and IG. Like they look like they literally "woke up like this".... So if you know me, the glam thing you know that is a super stretch.. I'm normal at this point in life, I prefer leggings, Jordans and hoodie every chance I get... I have served my time in the club in 5-6 inch heels with the dresses short enough for my niece to wear. So when I sat down with my good friend, Chaz about doing photos for my blog I know I was probably every photographers nightmare. No, like seriously.... She asked about my ideas for my shoot, my visions, and I had nothing.. I mean I'm not a model? I like cookies too much....My 'sexy face' looks like I have something in my eye,lol So I did my own make up (scary, I know), Wore two of my favorite items; a denim shirt from Torrid (that my boobs are apparently too big for), and a tulle skirt from Zellie For She, And sat in front of the ca

Size and the standard of beauty ;The little girl in the pink jumper

So lately I've been battling with some deamons as far as my appearance..... As a bigger girl I have learned what can make or break you in terms of beauty..... Yet I still find it shocking when people find me attractive.I'm very shy,and often it hard to believe that people find me beautiful......I always resort back to moments of my childhood.... Picture this..... A chubby bubbly lite skin girl with braids and barettes in a pink and white shirt,deniem jumper,white socks,and pink/white nikes(eh I was a 90's kid) comes to her desk and sees a note.... "Dear Ashlei Will you be my girlfriend?" The little girl looks over to the most popular boy in class,who happens to be smiling at her from ear to ear.The youg girl sends a note back,"Yes"backwards "s" and all....Later on that day as the children file out of their lines for recess,the girls on one side stepping,playing house,and the boys on the other wresling,playing football,etc.....A yung ma
