My Current Playlist (April)

Hey loves!

A new playlist is hot off the press and ready for a listen. In the Spotlight, April issue music has a featured section again! Back by popular demand. I am always on the hunt for the fresh and original artist. So many people in the music industry sound so much like each other that it is hard to pay attention to what they are trying to express.  To keep up with my evolving playlist follow me on Spotify! You won’t be disappointed.

Whose In My Playlist

As always my music playlist is very diverse. When listening to music I get inspiration from all genres and decades. Some of my current music obsessions has been JP Cooper (Spotify), Chloe x Halle (Spotify), and Zayn (SoundCloud). Soundcloud is one of my go-to music apps to find new artist and podcast to listen too.

10 Things I Can’t Live Without

Hey loves!

 

10 Things I Can’t Live Without

  1. Food/Air: This duo is a given obviously! But seriously when you sit down and digestion the big picture it’s very simple. Food is energy in a fancy form. In a later post, I’m going to let you all in on what some of my favorite snacks are that keeps me energized and productive throughout my day.
  2. Sunlight: To be honest I am a flower incarnated as a person. I was born and grow up in Florida the sunshine state. I love being outside and having sun-kissed skin. The sun gives me life! When it’s cloudy and mucky I have little to no motivation. I just want to curl up watch some good movies and eat some good food.
  3. Wifi: This one needs no explanation. Wifi is a way of life. Yes, I know how important it is to unplug from time to time, but hen you’re connected make the most out of it. As much as a positive can be it can also be a negative.
  4. My Phone: I am not one of those people who have their phone glued to their hand all the time. I use my phone for business a lot. I have everything I need to be on a successful path in one compact area.
  5. Working Out: In my last issue, I had an entire layout of workouts that I enjoy doing. Yoga most of all is my favorite than is swift second comes the duo of running and strength training.
  6. Prayer/ Mediation: This powerhouse duo helps me stay rooted and clear of mind. I start and finish my day with prayer and meditation. I recommend that everyone no matter your religious standing start and end their day in this fashion.
  7. My Journals: I already went over this in an entire post click the picture below to check it out!img_1181
  8. Tea: This drink runs through my veins! My favorites happen to be peppermint, green, and peach tea. I am constantly drinking tea if I am not drinking water. I drink tea year round and about 3-4 cups a day.
  9. Chapstick: No one like chap lips especially during the colder times of the year. It’s not cute and can lead it many problems. Like bad breath and cracked lips.
  10. Hair Products: My hair is naturally curly and extremely thick! If I don’t have products to tame and hydrate my hair it is hell for. I have constant headaches migrates. The one thing I dread in life when I have to do my hair is running out hair product. If that happens I might as well go back to sleep and try again tomorrow.

My 12 Favorite Phone Apps

Hey loves!

My phone is definitely my second brain. I have everything on my phone that helps me be a functioning and productive citizen. There is an app for everything you can possibly think of. Without apps, I can solemnly say there would be no point in having a phone. Without furthermore let’s dive into my favorite apps!

My 12 Favorite Phone Apps

  1. Bible App: I get on this app every day to connect with The Word and I absolutely love it! I found new scriptures every day that come like clockwork when needed.
  2. Instagram: This is my favorite app hands down! I am constantly posting content on Instagram and especially Instagram stories. Since I have deleted Snapchat Instagram stories have been my jam!
  3. Youtube: I go to this app to watch more video than I do tv. YouTube is a very helpful app that entertains and educates about things that I am interested in.
  4. Grammarly: I downloaded this program on every device I use. Grammarly is a lifesaver! I am always writing and Grammarly is my best friend when it comes to catching my mistakes. 
  5. Spark Post: This app helped me step up my Instagram story game! I love everything about this app. It is very easy to understand and I love that I get to be crazy creative.
  6. Notes: Since I am constantly on the go. The notes app is my right hand because my phone is always on me. Anytime ideas or thoughts that I have go first to my Notes apps than end up in my journals than.
  7. Hype Type: Another app that helps kill my Instastories! If I want my stories to have a little extra sauce this is my go-to app. I love that you can add music to your stories also using this app.
  8. Spotify: Music is life! You all know how much I love Spotify. I did a whole post about this app before. I start my day with Spotify and close my day with Spotify.
  9. WordPress: This app is the platform that my blog is running on! I check WordPress daily to interact with people and post content.
  10. Clue: This app is super important for me to use on a daily basis because it helps me keep track of my menstrual. Also helps me keep track on my exercising, eating habitats, and skincare.
  11. Duolingo: This app is amazing! I use it daily to help me learn Spanish. This app is very useful for any language that you are trying to learn. It starts at the basic than goes up in difficulty.
  12. Soundcloud: I found a lot of cool non-mainstream artist on this app. I also use a good amount of songs from this platform on my YouTube channel. This platform is a melting pot of creativity. I also listen to some pretty lit podcast on this app.

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 😋
