A Message To My Future Son






Dear Karter,
It will be a few years before we meet, I wanted to take time to let you know about life before you......
Although you may not see them at family cookouts or on our family tree…
Trayvon,Jordan,Freddy,Alton ,Eric,Philando, and Micheal are your uncles …
Bad people murdered them because they were scared of them ,because they were just like you,Kings. Some of these bad people who hurt them, are the same ones who were hired to protect them. I’m not sure why they feared your uncles or if I’ll ever have answer… But know that the world will be a very different place by the time you get here, hopefully for the better?
I can't tell you not to listen to loud music or buy skittles at night, I can't tell you not to ever sell single cigarettes or CDs to help provide for your future family. 
I know its hard to understand, bad people were hired to to protect people like me and they kill them? These bad people don't go to jail? Its the way of the world right now..... I can't explain it, because I honestly don't understand it myself.
I can tell you that they don't see the value in you....Probably never will, but don't ever let that break you. We see value in you. Use the things from my generation as the strength to break these chains,don't be scared, create change, be the change....... 
-Mommy

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
