If We Were Having Coffee

If we were having coffee, you would probably be at a Starbucks ordering a tall pike while I’m ordering a grande caramel frappuccino with no whip cream, no caramel drizzle, and extra ice. Since sweets have been a thing for us I’ll add a dark chocolate croissant for us to share.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you we don’t deserve you as a mother. Your actions day in and day out show us you would go to the ends of the Earth to protect and care for your children. No matter if we are acting like assholes you will still pick up the phone if we called you to help us out.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that you inspire me to be bolder in career choices. You tell me that the limits are non-existence. You tell us that we are meant to be extraordinary and you will not expect anything less of your kids.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this illness you are facing is nothing but a test from the man above. He and I know the strength you possess. The scripture says he does not put challenges in the way that we cannot handle.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you the light your spirit gives off is blinding. Sometimes I find myself in awe of the things you have accomplished in such undesirable circumstances. You are the reason why I don’t take or give out excuses in life.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I love you so much. Even though sometimes I show that I am less than grateful for what you do that is not the case. In fact, it is the complete opposite.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I am glad to be your daughter because you have shown me what’s it like to be strong.

2018 Vision Board

Hey loves!

Every year my mom and I make vision boards of what we expect the year to look like for us. This year is a special year I don’t know why, but I can feel it. There will be major moves made in regards to my dreams.

On my vision board this year I have six different areas of my life that I would like to improve upon.

Self-Love

To improve in the realm of self-love I have started to get myself into a consistent routine. I have a skincare regimen of using St. Ives facial wash at night on my skin and in the morning I use my Biore facial cleanser. At night I put a mixture of tea tree, coconut, and two other oils to make my skin glow and decrease the number of acne scars, blackheads, acne and other elements that make it harder to have nice glowy skin. To further my self-love I will …

  • Read the Word
  • Mediate
  • Bath bombs
  • Reading

Health & Fitness

To improve in the fitness realm I go to the gym about four times a week. I start my day off with yoga and stretching out my body. I also watch a lot of the foods I put in my mouth since I am transitioning from being a vegetarian to a vegan. I try to eat very clean.

To further myself in fitness I will …

  • Going to be working with a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals.
  • Eating fewer carbs and more veggies.

Fashion

To improve in the fashion realm this year I will take more risks with my clothing options. Last year I took a lot of risks, but still, I felt sometimes I was holding back. I want to be genuinely and fully myself in choices for fashion. To further my improve in fashion I will…

  • Buy more investment staple pieces.
  • Go thrifting more.
  • Step up my shoe game.
  • Do always follow the trend. Make a trend.

Spirituality

To improve in the realm of spirituality I will read the Word on daily bases. I will pray on daily in the morning and at night.

To further improve in spirituality I will…

  • Talk to more people about my faith.

Socializing more

To improve in the realm of socializing more I will hang out with my friends more on weekly bases. It’s hard trying to get everyone together but I will put in more effort this year.

To further improve in socializing I will…

  • Go to more concerts.
  • Do more outdoor activities.
  • Join some clubs.
  • Maybe even join a sports team.

Travel

To improve in the realm of travel I plan to take a trip every quarter this year. Whether it’s just weekend trips away or a full blow vacation I will be on the move this year.

To further improve in traveling I will…

  • Look at Groupon for travel deals.
  • Have a traveling partner.
  • Know the location that I want to travel too.

What do you all think of my list? Have you ever done a vision board before?

xoxo,

Asya

Black Fridays Buys

Hey loves!

Buy one get one 50% off is not a deal in eyes!

I scored huge on Black Thursday & Black Friday! Making a list and checking it twice helped me stay disciplined in my purchases. I had two different lists that I was looking at while shopping to make sure that I got everything I need and some of my wants as well.  I would glance at my list I made days prior to my shopping endeavorers and a list I made back in June of this year. Down below is my Black Friday Wishlist!

My Black Friday Wishlist

One thing you will learn about me is that I am a person that is big on lists and putting pen to paper. Sounds old fashion, but it keeps me ground and prevents overspending. Another thing that helped me buy thoughtfully is shopping on two different days. My first day of shopping was on Thanksgiving or Black Thursday as I like to refer it as. I was in and out of stores on Black Thursday because I knew exactly what I wanted and I didn’t look into any other stores that were not on my list. I did not care how huge the sales were in the surrounding stores all I knew was I needed to get what I came to obtain and get the hell up out of this mayhem. It was very much like a Black Ops mission! Black Friday shopping is serious no joke. These sales bring out the worst in people. Before, I get off track let’s leap into my purchases!

What I got for Black Thursday & Black Friday

Clothing

  • Classic White Adidas Tee (with the black logo)
  • Classic White Adidas Tee (with the heather gray logo)
  • Plush Pink Joggers (with the three stripes down the leg)
  • Golden State Warrior Windbreaker (from Forever 21)

Shoes

  • Timberlands
  • Nike Air Force 1
  • White Birkenstocks
  • Olive Birkenstocks
  • Adidas Tubular Shadow J
  • Crep Protect (Shoe Protect Spray)

Accessories

Ralph Lauren Sunglasses

Makeup

bareMinerals Primer

  • bareMinerals Eyeliner x 2
  • bareMinerls Complexion Rescue
  • bareMinerls Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara
  • bareMinerals Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara

I did stay strict on sticking to my lists, but I did also have some slip-ups were I just had to cop some product because I would have needed it in the near future. One of those purchases is the makeup because that wasn’t on neither f my list, but the sale that was going on was absolutely once in a lifetime. I have never bought BareMinerals for such a cheap price. That purchase borderline made me uncomfortable because it was such a steal. The store I bought it at is called Bare & Beauty and they had 40% off the entire cosmetic store! It was bananas.

What were your favorite sales and stores that you all went shopping in on Black Thursday & Black Friday?

One For The Family

Hey loves!

I am loving myrtle beach right now! If you saw my post yesterday and on Snapchat, the views are God made. Even though the weather is a little chilly here it still is a site for sore eyes. I will miss waking up in bed to look to the right of me to see the ocean.

Thanksgiving Day: Myrtle Beach

Packed my backpack for the road. It was a long ride to my cousins house.

My OG

My OG

Spending time with my mom’s side of the family was amazing. I had never met them at this point and I was definitely missing out. The food, drinks, love, and laughter was flowing from all directions. No one would have thought we just met them for the first time that day.

Black Thursday Deals

Black Thursday is totally a thing now… at least for me!

I have some Black Thursday drip! Yes, you read right Black Thursday is totally a thing now… at least for me! I loved being out in the hustle and bustle of shopping when everything is going extremely fast. I went to five stores and in less than an hour and got huge deals. I will go into depth when I get back home because I going to do a second sweep of the Tanger Outlets by the hotel just in case I missed anything last night.

Stay woke guys! It’s lit out here. Have fun with your family, food, and shopping! Happy Holidays to everyone!

My FOG X Vans Campout Story

Hey loves!

The FOG X Vans drop on 11.17.17

The Night Before…

The night before the release I was in a super hyped mode. I went to the gym to burn off steam after work then I went back home to start to prepare for my departure to the mall. I packed my Steve Madden bag with a book, two journals, pens, and snacks for me while I’m waiting in line.  I stayed up until about 12:15 in order to see if the shoes would drop on online and they didn’t. The PacSun website had crashed, so there was no way I was going to be able to buy them.

The Day Of…

I set my alarm on my phone to get up at 6:15 am and start getting ready to head to the only mall in Georgia that had the shoes. I left my house a little after 6:45 am and made it to the mall at 7:11 am. When I arrived I didn’t see that many people which were exciting and nerve-racking at the same time. There were quite a few cars outside but with no one in the cars, so I was thinking somehow these people had to be in the mall already even though the mall doesn’t open until 10 am. I took a service entrance into the mall since the door was open. I took the service elevator up to level 2. Once I got off the elevator I was walked down the hallway and was faced to face with a cop. My heart down to my feet I thought I would be in some serious trouble but by the grace of God, he helped me find my way to PacSun with only one question asked. “How can I help you?” He said.

Once I left the service pathway and entered the mall it was go and popping. I thought I would have a decent spot in line but I was mistaken. There was already about 50 to 60 people already there. I got in line anyway and enjoyed the sneaker culture. The people in the line were so nice and welcoming. They told me a lot more about the sneaker culture than I knew before. Now I know about resell website and what are true hype beast wearing and copping.

The Aftermath…

Sadly I didn’t get the shoes. I was extremely butt hurt at first but now I’m better because the marshmallow vans are dropping soon. I have a solid plan of how to get the shoes that are releasing soon now that I know how the culture is.

That was must of the story that happened yesterday. I did leave some parts out due to the fact that I might incriminate myself 😋

Must Do Fall Activities

Hey loves!

I simply adore watching Hallmark movies during the fall season. The mundane activities that were done in several of those movies bring me great joy.  Instead of just watching the activities this year I thought why not create my own list of corny yet fun fall activities to enjoy this season.

As we tend to get older most of us lose our sense of getting joy out of the small pleasures in life. I challenge my followers to create their own list of corniness (which I mean in the best way possible). Have a little fun and be goofy this almost holiday season.

Must Do Fall Activities

  1. Go to a pumpkin patch.
  2. Go apple picking.
  3. Have an autumn photo shoot. I can check off my list! Visit my post from two days ago to see the receipts of seasonal goodness at it’s best.
  4. Get lost in a corn maze.
  5. Go on a hayride.
  6. Toast pumpkin seeds.
  7. Go into a haunted house.
  8. Make dinner inside a pumpkin.
  9. Decorate for Halloween.
  10. Go to a Halloween party.
  11. Go to a fair. I can check this off my list. If you follow me on Snapchat you saw all the fun my friends and I were having at the fair.
  12. Go to a petting zoo. I can check this off my list since the fair happened to have a petting zoo inside of it!

Relax, Much?

Hey loves!

Yesterday was a dream! I gave myself a day of well-needed rest. I have been in a work work work grind lately with no stop. Exhaustion was inevitable at the rate I was going. Last week my church did a sermon about exhaustion and the Sabbath. Basically, the pastor spoke about how the importance of giving yourself a day of rest on Sunday (or whatever day you are off).  The point of the rest is to be at leisure. As a society, we are constantly praised for killing ourselves for a job but looked down upon if we need a break as if it is forbidden. We are not robots!

We can not operate in a 24/7 all year round with no consequence. Such ignorance will only be the downfall in our society and culture especially in the western world. A weekly break from work would benefit the masses. For example Chick fil A only operates six out of the seven days a week and makes just as much money as McDonalds whom is open 24/7 all year round. The concept we need to be following as a nation is to work smarter and not harder.

Story Time: Broken Glass Ends Fun…

Hey loves!

It’s been awhile, guys. My life has been crazy busy yet slow at the same time. A lot of change is happening right now which is bittersweet, but anyway let me get into the story.

Yesterday my brother, my friend and I went to this local waterfall creek. I wanted to film some video footage for my up coming video. Everything was going great we cross the river and climbed up the mountainside to go the cliffs. We jumped off the cliffs and meet some local dare devil (who are extremely fearless). The cliff we were jumping off of was 25 feet. Those dare devil would climb up an extra 10 feet to jump in the river (which is mind blowing because this water was already sketchy) Nevermind that there were boulders in the water as well. With all that said it was fun acting young and dumb. The day was going good and we left the cliffs to go caves that were in the waterfall. It was the absolute struggle trying to fight the current to get into the cave and when we were trying to beat the current that is when my brother punctured his foot on broken glass. I thought he was joking at first when he said that “he couldn’t swim and needed my help”. I basically pushed my friend out of the way and jumped in the water to get him. It was extremely scary I thought I was going to drown because I couldn’t handle the current and his weight at the same time, so I called out for these guys to help me (thank god that they helped because I have no idea what would have happened if they weren’t there. I had my friend call the police/ ambulance to help my brother with his injury. The only thing that was concerning was that it took the ambulance 40 minutes to get there because they had no idea where this waterfall was located. In the end, my brother got his injuries treated and we all went to get food.

Change Your Mindset

Hey loves!

I accept! I highly recommend you watch the video above before reading my post. This video was the push I needed. I have been thinking about going cold turkey on tv for a while now and I finally made up my mind to do so. I will be doing a 30 day fast in order to push myself further into my creative endeavors. Tv sometimes can be a double-edged sword me for. I find inspiration when viewing certain programs and other times it’s just something to do that pass the time. Instead of passing the time for these 30 days I will be investing in my spiritual self. I will be loading up on knowledge through a podcast, Ted Talks, poetry, YouTube, and books. I am talking this challenge extremely serious because it will show me how bad I want to improve myself instead of just talking about it.

Asya Alert

I thought I might as well write a post while I still awake. The pain pills that the dentist prescribes have me out like a light. I kid you not one moment I would be watching a show on Netflix then next thing the tv is watching me. I am recovering well from having all four of my wisdom teeth exacted at once. The surgery was flawless (thank God).  For now Cheerio guys!

xoxo,

A
