Welcome to my little corner of the internet. Make yourself at home. Kick off your shoes, make a cup of green tea, have an avocado or two, do some pushups, paint your nails, snatch your brows, maybe hit a sun salutation, shake out your fro, let the weight of the world go, all while listening to some trap music. If that sounds like a good time, then this blog is for you. I receive you with open arms, an even more open heart, and probably a poppin' twistout.
I'm a Jersey Shore born, Howard University educated public health professional raised by Jamaican parents living in Houston, Texas. Self proclaimed science nerd (I majored in chemistry clearly because I am a masochist) who enjoys smashing the patriarchy and looking good while doing it, I've created this space to share the inner workings of my mind, my creative musings, and Rihanna gifs.
I tend to be overly concerned with the welfare of other humans, particularly oppressed populations, and just want to share my story in an effort to make this world a more inclusive, loving, and positive place. Let's talk politics, blockchain/crypto, fashion, beauty, dating, history of the African diaspora, conspiracy theories, aliens, mental health, great reads, fitness, hair, and all the other things that interest me on my blog. If you put me on to a new podcast I will be your friend forever. Hit up my Ask Ashley section for some advice, to suggest a topic of discussion, or to let me know how much you love me (or not). Either way I'm happy you're here <3.
