So this is 30......

Okay so 80's babies (and some 90's kids) may remember this....

Remember in 1999 when everyone was so freaked out about y2K?



Everyone's parents started to freak out, buying up bottled water,canned goods and bullets(maybe that last one was just my dad,but you get my point).....

People really thought that the computers were going to shut down, the world would come to an end or whatever..

That's exactly how 30 is...... Sorry to ruin it kids.

For the past few months, I have been trying to wrap my mind around 30 and the possibilities around it.. Or what I think should be happening to me rather? Or what I believe I should be doing......

And then May 4th,2016 came around, much like December 31, 1999 , I went to bed that night not knowing what may happen at midnight...

So midnight came, and the world didn't come to an end... The computers didn't stop working... I didn't need bottle water, well not until the following day because all that tequilla had me super dehydrated....

I turned 30, went to work and enjoyed Cinco de Mayo happy hour margaritas and shots of Patron (and Curervo) with my loved ones .... That weekend, I had an amazing birthday dinner,spent time with my family and my love. I didn't party like it was 1999,because in 1999 I was like 13. I enjoyed every minute of the weekend,being surrounded by so much love,people driving hours to come,the gifts and cards.....It was just amazing

I guess the saying '30 is the new 20' is wrong, 30 is just that, 30. 

And I am totally here to embrace it .

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
