Swiming,Swiming.....

One thing Ive always hated as a preteen before summer was swimsuit shopping for summer camp....The thought of the locker room,boys looking at me in my suit,nasty water screwing up my hair,just made me want to.....

*gag*,but I digress...

Now as an adult,I can shop freely for myself but part of me hates to see women at the pool,beach,etc with tshirts on over their swimsuits,if you have curves,a big butt,large thighs,BE PROUD or don't swim!I mean honestly why put yourself through the stress of purchasing something that is going to make or break your ego for the next 3months if your going to cover it up?

A sports bra,tshirt and bball shorts are so much cheaper and alot less stressful.

I remember one time i went to the beach,a woman who was shapely as I was yet smaller walked up to me,wearing a tshirt,over her swim suit and told me she admired how bold I was to walk around in just my swimsuit.....

I stared at her and said,'why wouldnt i?my body is beautiful,and so is yours....'

I smiled,returned to my beach activites with my family,and saw the woman go back to her towel...Out the corner of my eye I saw her take off the worn family reunion tshirt to revel an amazing swimsuit,and a cute shape!


*Warning* I know my choices are slightly pricey,but you get what you pay for.

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
