Hi, My name is Fat Girl...

Talk about a conversation starter! Every time I wear this t-shirt from Corrissa of Fat Girl Flow, I feel like changing my name to Fat Girl. Because all people seem to notice is that my shirt says "fat girl", not that my jeans are fabulous which make my legs and a$$ look great or that my curls are popping, or even the fact that my face is giving a natural flawless glow. Nope! All they see is a walking "fat girl" label and dammit I LOVE IT!

There's something so liberating about owning being a fabulous fat girl! After 24 years of being in this fat body, learning to love it unconditionally, appreciate it and to finally see it's beauty..I think it time to #OwnIt! I won't allow a few "fat shamers" or people who don't understand my simple curvy life (pun intended lol) to steal my shine. It's so funny to me how other people are intimidated or feel uncomfortable when you embrace your true self and love yourself apologetically. I hope one day they'll find their inspiration, like I did rocking my Fat Girl Flow tee!

Season of the Music Festival

FacebookInstagramTwitter, BlogLovin'Google+
I've been suffering from #FOMO thanks to Snapchat and Instagram overly reminding me that I did not attend Coachella lol. I'd love to attend the music festival but Coachella is not in my budget right now ($1,000 admission, hotels, flight, food, etc..nah bruh). Although I missed Coachella, I plan to attend many music festivals and concerts this summer; so far I'm going to see Beyonce, attending The Made in America Music Festival, and other local music happenings in my area. Here's some outfit inspiration as we head into the season of music festivals!

XOXO,

24 Things I Learned Before 24



Dear Mama...

Dear Mama,
I truly don't know where to begin this letter, I feel as though no matter what words I write...they'll never be enough to express to you how much I appreciate, love, and admire you. But, I guess I can start at the beginning. Mommy, thank you for bringing me into the world. I'm so grateful that you chose to selflessly carry me in your womb and birth me into this crazy, weird place we call earth (it's still a strange place to me 23 years later lol). Mommy Lady, thanks for all the sacrifices you make to ensure Antonio and I have all of the things our hearts desire. Although you've told me thousands of times not to let our wants hurt us lol, I truly can't remember a time when you didn't provide us with something we needed or wanted. Back in 2005, when we left D.C I couldn't understand for the life of me why you'd relocate us to this little ol' country town in Virginia. But now that I'm older I appreciate your choice, our lives were transformed in many positive ways since moving here. Truthfully, I don't think I would've accomplished as much as I have if it weren't for you relocating us here when you did. Mom, thanks for always being there for a good laugh, words of encouragement, life & boy advice(I'll get it together one of these days), and for being listening ear on those days I just need to vent. I can't ever repay you for all of the great things you give to me day in and out. I just pray that God allows me to be half as great of a woman, sister, friend, and mother as you are to me and the many people who's lives you've touched.
Happy Mother's Day Pretty Lady! I love you to the moon and back.
Ashley
