Spotlight May/ June Double Feature: Dare To Dream

Hey loves!

My brief hiatus is over! I forced myself to take a week intermission from writing on Caution District to focus on the direction I wanted to take this blog in. Prior to my hiatus, I was so laser focused on just posting content to meet a quota that I set for myself due to someone else’s standards. My heart and ambitions were all in the right place, but it was my speed that was off. In a sense, I was mass producing content instead of going door to door if you get my metaphor. As I explained in my recent Asya Alert my blogging schedule changed from six days a week to four days a week. In the next couple of months, there will be a lot of positive changes coming to Caution District and I can not wait for you all to see what I’ve had up my sleeve!

Spotlight May/ June Double Feature: Dare To Dream

The new issue of Spotlight by popular demand is all about dreaming, doing, and achieving. This double feature is a spin-off of the dreamer’s series that I had been writing to inspire people to go for what their heart’s desire. Sometimes life moves too quickly and no moment is perfect so you just have to do the best with the cards you’ve been dealt.  Whether it is working two jobs in the daytime and doing your side hustle once you get off the clock or working one full-time job and working on your side hustle in every free moment you get. One thing I have learned from my nineteen years on this Earth is regret is vexing. That’s why I applaud all the people who are making moves to their dreams. No matter the speed in which they are reaching them. Now that I have gotten my inner monologue for this issue out let’s get into what you all came for… the double feature. Click below on the cover and enjoy!

How to Create The Perfect Margerita Flatbread at Home

Hey loves!

After a long day and being too lazy to cook dinner for myself. I went to Target and got a frozen California Pizza Kitchen margarita flatbread. Once I got home I popped the flatbread into the toaster oven. The flatbread was extremely delicious the only thing I despised was the fact that it was “fast convenient food” which is not at all good for your body. The next day I went grocery shopping and got all the ingredients to attempt making a fresher version of the flatbread I enjoyed the night before.

Ingredients for Margherita Flatbread Pizza:

• 1/2 flatbread

• fresh mozzarella cheese

• 1/2 of roma tomato, sliced into squares

• 3-4 leaves basil

• 1/2 tsp dry garlic powder

• 1Tbsp Olive Oil

• 1.5 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

• Salt & Pepper to taste

How to Create The Perfect Margherita Flatbread at Home

  1. Cut the flatbread in half. Then cut one of the halves into a half.
  2. Put the organic pizza sauce on your flatbread.
  3. Lightly drizzle a little garlic powder and basil in the sauce.
  4. Chopped of the roma tomato and sprinkle it over the sauce.
  5. Put mozzarella cheese over the sauce and tomatoes.
  6. Put the flatbread in the toaster oven at 350 degrees F for 9-10 minutes.
  7. While the flatbread is in the oven chop up the basil leaves and spread them out on top of the flatbread when it comes out the oven.
  8. Lastly, drizzle the balsamic vinaigrette mixed with garlic and olive oil on top of the flatbread.

Final Product

I had fun exploring new recipes to make at home. I did get this recipe from the website below. I modified the recipe to my own preferences. To see the original recipe click below!

Taking Risk

Hey loves!

I have seen this trend all over Pinterest where people have been wearing shirts and legging under their dresses. I have been on the fence about trying that look out on myself until I styled a mannequin that was wearing a dress with a printed tee.

Taking Risk

Fashion is all about experimenting. Sometimes that involves leaving your comfort zone. So I decided to style a white t-shirt under my plush pink velvet dress paired with a pair of floral Adidas sneakers.

What am I wearing?

Dress: Forever 21.

Shoes: Adidas.

Accessories: Apple watch and Windsor.

Makeup: Bare Minerals Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, Anastasia Dipbrow, Bare Mineral Volumizing Mascara, Bare Minerals Eyeliner, Bare Mineral Lipgloss, and Profusion Eye Shadow & Highlight.

Hairstyle: Twist.

What’s the latest happening on Caution District

I have been doing a lot of spring cleaning on the blog today. Over the years of I have changed a lot about the content I produced. I have also been reflecting on the daily blogs that are posted on this platform. Right now I am not in a creative overflow to produce daily blog posts of value. To bring my readers more value I am going to start four days out of the week. The days that I will be posting are Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Monday through Friday the posts are scheduled to release at 8 am EST. Sunday’s post is scheduled to be released at 10 am EST. This change will give me more time to create better and more meaningful content.

Current Blogging Series Rundown

We have two blogging series going on right now on Caution District. The How To Be A Dreamer series and the newly released series Confessions Of a Blogaholic. The How To Be A Dreamer series focuses on what it takes to get in a dreamer’s mindset and how to make your dreams a reality. The Confessions Of a Blogaholic is a series that express the ups and downs of the what it takes to be a successful blogger with killer content.

What’s Been Axed?

All good thing must come to an end, right? With much thought gone into the decision Asya’s Dishing Out The Issues will no longer be featured on Caution District. I have decided to move those type of blog post to my (personal) yet still public Tumblr page.

Asya Dishing Out The Issues Cosmopolitan (She who dares, win…) June 2018

Hey loves!

On The Cover: The freckled face Kesha is gracing the fearless issue of Cosmo. I am excited about this issue. I have been a fan of Kesha since the fifth grade. Your love is my drug was my friends and I jam for sleepovers!

Inside the magazine: I enjoyed the classic sections Dates Hell and Too Funny. There were really good articles as well. Fearless was a good theme and very fitting

Kesha’s Interview 

 

I adored this interview with Kesha. I especially enjoyed the part where she talked about the Grammy moment where she performed her song Praying with over female artist. That performance in my eyes was truly powerful because it displayed women supporting other women. Keisha was completely transparent in this issue and had nothing to hid.

Afterthoughout: Check out the articles on Cosmo.com To be honest, if my mom didn’t subscribe to the mailing subscriptions of magazines I would just read them on the magazine’s website.

How To Get Over Writer’s Block

Hey loves!

I have gone four months strong postng daily content for Caution District until about a couple of days ago. I hit the writer’s block wall and was drawing blanks. I couldn’t think of a single thing that was worthy of posting. So I thought why not turn this into an opportunity to share my struggles. I decided to start a series on blogging since my recent post have been about this subject.

How To Get Over Writer’s Block

  1. Find inspiration in the small things in life. For example, going for a walk in nature, watching a TV show or movie. I find a lot of inspirations in movies especially feel-good movies.
  2. Stop thinking about creating and document your experience. I am doing exactly what this bullet point states right now. I am documenting my experience of writer’s block and creating a series from my blog.
  3. Write down all your ideas, even the bad ones. When it does not seem creativity is flowing you have to look at the situation differently. At the moment of writing down your ideas you may think they are terrible. Hours later with a different mindset and fresh a set of eyes, those same ideas could be just what you needed to jumpstart your brainstorming.
  4. Try to tune out the noise in your life. When creating an environment to cultivate creativity try listening to classical music. Low-key classical music is a guilty pleasure of mine. I even created a playlist on Spotify called classically wildin’.
  5. Don’t over think the content you are producing. Just let whatever flow out on to the paper or the computer. Come back hours or even next day to edit the content on the paper to your liking. I find in the editing stage of content creating is when my creativity is at a peak because it all my ideas come naturally.

Asya Alert (food for thought edition)

Hey loves!

This weekend I took a break from all my platforms to hang out with family. Not going lie I needed that break badly. I was burnt out completely. Sometimes I forget it’s okay to lay around with family and watch movies or go out for a meal. I have been a work and more work mindset. I started to see breaks as toxic because I am supposed” to be in a 25/8 grind mode according to some people. Which leads to my next point be yourself 200% of the time always! Listen to your insists and trust them because I promise you 9.5 times out of 10 they are leading you in the right direction. Also, don’t ask someone their opinion if you truly don’t care what they think.

Just a little food for thought to chew on this Mother’s Day. Happy Mother’s Day to all the boss women making it happen for themselves and their family! I am in awe you all.

Before I forget the count for the double feature of Spotlight is in the works! I am on cloud nine and can’t wait to share this issue with you all.

Confessions of a Habitual Nail Salon Devotee Pt. 3

Hey loves!

I chopped off my acrylic overlay nails for my natural nails! Since December my nails had an acrylic overlay over them. While I love going to the nail salon to get them done I need a break. Summer is the best time for everything natural nails to be present. With that said let’s get into this post.

Confessions of a Habitual Nail Salon Devotee Pt. 3

Summer is a time when we all are outside a lot doing activities and having fun. Having artificial nails, acrylic nails, and even gel nail get in the way of having the best time. I can not tell you how many times I have broken a nail after leaving the nail salon a few days before and it ruins the fun. Instead of enjoying the moment I am thinking about how I need to fix the broken nail ASAP. Here is some reason having natural nails for the summer season is the best decision to make.

  1. Your hands will think you for the breather. Constantly going to the nail salon can take a toll on your natural nails and could cause them to become weaker.
  2. You will save a good amount of money. My mindset right now is all about living in the moment and making experiences. Which you need money to do, so skipping out on your getting your nails will help with that.
  3. You can do your nails at home. Make it a self-care day. Put in a facial mask and draw a nice fancy bath featuring essential oils and bath bombs.

My nail page is located under the beauty tab. Down below are my previous at-home and salon nail care post. Be sure to check them out!

Dreamers (Motivational Youtubers & Entrepreneurs) Who Took The Leap

Hey loves!

This post is the fourth installment in the How To Be A Dreamer series. I have been receiving so many positive comments from readers expressing how much this series is inspiring them. For this post in the series, I thought it would cool to look at people who followed their dreams. It is no secret that I love YouTube and have aspirations of being a Youtuber. Content creators and entrepreneurs are some of the biggest dreamers because they risk their entire worlds in the hopes of reaching success and self-employment.

Dreamers (Motivational Youtubers & Entrepreneurs) Who Took The Leap

  1. Gary Vaynerchuck https://youtu.be/AS-ycudM-iw
  2. Refusing To Settle (Clark Kegley) https://youtu.be/isPhOFhv_scBri Hall https://youtu.be/52IyqGfBMCk
  3. LilyLikecom https://youtu.be/6_iVoeFdDGs
  4. Boho Beautiful https://youtu.be/FlSjmCzPiSk
  5. Jay Shetty https://youtu.be/K8BGkoJv6gg

The names above are just some of the few (hardworking) dreamers who are killing the games in their niche online. Most of them started out with one thought. They wanted to be to be free of the mundane singular societal path. They all leaped out on faith no matter how long it took them to reach their goals. That’s all it takes! One leap and a ton of hard work for your dreamers to become a reality like these other dreamers in the list above. I ask that you check out some of the videos from the people I mentioned. I promise you will not regret it at all!
