Wednesday sparked a lot of emotion in this country and while I typically stay pretty firm on the 3 I do not discuss in mixed company (politics,Beyoncé and religion )

.... I have to take the time out to tell this story..
There is a 10 year old boy who is learning the ways of life just like all of his peers... He goes to school, tries to stay out of trouble, plays video games, you know normal kid stuff..
On Wednesday morning he woke up stressed and upset...I know what stress could he be facing?
He found out that Donald Trump is going to be the president....
Well what does it matter, he is a kid?
This same ten year old child is now fearing that the president will harm his Mexican classmates.

And why wouldn't he??

I mean given the hate that has been spewed from this man AND his supporters,I think the thought is slightly accurate ?

I mean,personally I don't fear anything but snakes and spiders right now, in my lifetime I have seen several white presidents and even more racist white people... 

None the less I lived to tell the tale.

I fear for our future,I fear that a man can come in,openly contradict the things we instill in our children and they see him be rewarded for it... 
I'm sure you think I'm being dramatic,so let me give you some examples.....

We tell our young men,to be respectful of women....
Donald Trump laughs about grabbing women by 'pu**y'

We tell our children that it's okay to accept differences in each other,
He openly mocks the disabled and disrespects Muslims 

We teach our children about how our military protects us from those who want to harm us,
He disrespects gold star families.

And for all of this he is rewarded with the most powerful position in our nation? This sends the wrong message to our kids, our future voters.

In two years, I have watched the hate ,intolerance and bigotry increase, hell I even lost someone I thought was my friend.



If this is the greatness that is in store for this country,I'll pass

Ill pass on conversations about racism with those who had the ability to wake up yesterday and not be affected,
Ill pass on trying to justify why my life matters,
Ill pass on sheltering our future about the harsh realities,
But Ill also pass on letting someone effect my peace, manifesting anything but positivity, being fearful, or taking in anyones hate.

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
