Something that has always had me interested....

*Thought,comments,etc expressed by iCookii are not ones of and/or its affliates*

Now that is out of the way...

Well good people its summer time,
The best time of year,ladies are showing hard earned bodies,cook outs,the guys are showing off their finaced rims,etc etc...
One thing that baffles me as a black person every summer,why the french do white people tan?

Why do you purposely sit in the sun until your darker than me?

Its not even just a summer thing though.....

It could be Feburary in OHIO, and you have the NERVE to walk around looking like a ompa lumpa?

Then of course there are my FAVORITES,the ole been around the block broads who have been tanning since they were 16,probably about 55 now ,think the tanning bed is the greatest invention next to the stop lite,and look like a cookie in the face chics.
Gotta love em.
It amuses me to see em.
But you cant possibly tell me that you think you look good when your face reminds me of one of those chips ahoy cookies ("dont you want me baby...")and your hair looks like hay because you have bleach it so much.
Looking like Malibu Barbies after someone put her on the grill.

I guess it isnt for me to understand as a woman of color,in a culuture where lite skin is paired with some type of privilage and dark skin simply isnt.

So Im COMPLETELY and UTTLERLY amazed to see white women mirror me......

After all that sun in the summer,and fake baking in the winter,its has to be unhealthy rite?
Like you could possibly take years and years of it and your face not fall off?

Call me ignorant but these are REAL questions,why you ask?
Because Im black and I dont tan....Hell I come from a race of people that dont like to sit in the sun(I believe my ancestors may have done enough of it for me)

I guess its one of those things Ill NEVER get?

So such as life...
Have a GREAT holiday!

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
