100 Days of Cookii.....

Needless to say after ducking dodging the bad juju that was 2016, I had a super rough end of 2016 and beginning of 2017.... 


But I made it...

There were some (a lot) of tears, some (a lot) pain and a few (SEVERAL) bottles of wine


But I made it.....


And isn't that the most important part of it all?? 

So now that I have reached a point of calmness, and certainly a place of clarity, I have started to gain some type of insight of things I needed for the next 100 days and new year....

Oh no this is not one of those 'New Year, New Me' post.... 

But after investing so much of my 2016 in others, a previous occupation, and countless interactions that I know I had no interest in, I am dedicating the next 100 days to me.....
Yes, from January 9,2017 to April 18,2017, I am going to love on myself, refuse anything that I have no interest in or could possibly do me harm, and if I get a chance, kick the booze a little and eat some vegetables... And fruit that hasn't been soaked in tequila? 

Standby for the bullet points...... (You know I love those things )

  • Take two trips, due to my new work schedule.. I can actually get around to traveling like I used to 
  • Go out once a month,Cleveland is an amazing city that ALWAYS has something to do but I never take advantage of it.  
  • Read 4 books....
  • Dedicate one hour a day to me and something I love or will provide me some type of substance
  • Buy myself things and not feel bad..... I will literally not buy myself things I desire because I subconsciously think of others and their needs? 
  • Save some damn money, i know the bullet point above is a total contradiction.... And while I have gotten so much better about my saving habits, I know I could be doing so much more..... 
  • Put my phone down...... I couldn't possibly tell you how often I am trapped on the phone call or text with someone about something I could care less about (sorry to those who know me personally), It is so seldom that I utilize that dope feature on the iPhone.... You know 'Don not disturb'
  • Embrace natural me more often... I spend a lot of time (and money) purchasing services ad products that end up on the floor (we just won't talk about how many times Ive killed 'deadly spiders' that were actually Ardell lashes)
  • See at least one concert, I LOVE live music.... One of the best parts of 2016 was seeing Kayne and Gucci Mane.... And don't judge me but Im looking forward to catching the Backstreet Boys in Vegas (Judge ya mama) 
  • Commit to find  space for myself....
  • Cook more, while I am the Queen of take-out, I have gained some pretty dope culinary skills and to be honest when I get few pots and some trap music, I am my happiest. 
  • Tell two people I love them daily..... Sometimes the best way to serve ourselves is to put what we need in life out in the universe ourselves.....
  • Create my own final arrangements, I know it sounds super morbid however if 2016 taught us nothing, it taught us that we don't know when our number will be called...
  • Actually go to the gym..... I have a free membership, and I would like my physical to reflect my new found mental ...I love running and how cute activewear looks on me....lol
  • Invest more in Cis4Cookii.com ,I have some real loyal readers both new and old that deserve more from me..... Maybe even a little give away will come in April to celebrate the 100 days of Cookii




So here is to the next 100 days, my peace and new found space....

x0x0, Cookii

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
