5 Things I have learned during quarintine


At the point you are reading this, I have been 'social distancing' for about 70+ days (you guys are just joining me)...

So I am gonna take a quick break to tell you about the 5 things I have learned while being in the house....

1. You can literally learn ANYTHING on YouTube. 
I have learned to make hot glue wigs, waist beads, and candle making thus fair ....
I may take up nails if these salons don't open up soon...
Outside of my hair (which is essential since of my vitamin deficiencies and my stylist is dope as hell ), I have learned that a lot of things I pay for are for experience and are luxury....Not to discredit industry professionals because they are professionals but I do feel better knowing I can maintain things or learn new skills.

2. Delivery services are LIFE....
I honestly save money buy utilizing delivery services, because I am the person at Target picking up shit I didn't go in there for......
God bless the Amazon, Instacart ,UPS,Shipt,etc  workers who keep us out of stores....
PLEASE TIP THEM WELL.

3. People don't check their mail (me included)
So I have sent several Cheryl &Co cookie cards to let some people know I was randomly thinking about them, and I had to tell them to go check which kinda ruined the surprise, but I'd rather do that than have some 5 month old cookie in your mail box lol

4. You save ALOT of money sitting at home.
I have been completely BLESSED to have transitioned from medical leave to work from home so I have been able to move a little differently .

5. Use the buddy system when subscribing to streaming .
So I am a total believer of being communal when having Netflix, Disney +, Hulu,etc. These companies don't need everyones $12, so I trade log ins with my friends and try not to watch their shows.

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
