A Guide To The Perfect “BBL”.
Okay, Okay let me tell the truth. Before we go any further; when I say the perfect “BBL” I’m referring to the Bad Babe Lifestyle. Mmmm Hmm you thought I was talking about a big round booty huh??. Nope! Now that I have your attention. Hi, I’m Ashley Tamarra. I’m a black woman in my thirties. I’m an entrepreneur by day and a mom at night; but in my head I’m a Bad Babe all the time *Plays Webbie’s “Bad B***h”*.
The BBL explained
It’s no secret the world today is obsessed with cosmetic surgery. Truthfully, my homegirl and I have weekly conversations about BBLs (Brazilian Butt Lifts), tummy tucks, and who’s had what done to their body. For some reason these things make the gworls “look” like “bad bitches”. But when you follow these people, they live a life of endless selfies and participate in things which lack culture, class, and/or stepping outside of the box for Christ sake….
In my opinion, being a bad babe isn’t a look at all; It’s an attitude, a mindset, feeling… it’s an overall lifestyle. It’s having the grit to grind and make things happen for your life whether you work a 9 to 5 or slang handmade earrings on your website all day. She knows how to dress appropriately for any event but on the flip side can cook a meal her family thought was catered. A bad babe is sexy not just physically but mentally. She travels outside of her state and does things out of her comfort zone. She moves with peace and love. I can really go on for days. But I think you get my drift.

Why Do This?
When I look around at myself and the people I surround myself with… we live a BBL. We chase passion, travel, raise children, take chances, we are survivors. I want to share these experiences and quests with you. But more so I hope this inspires someone to live a life they never imagined, or try something that makes them feel alive.
I’ve been talking about starting a blog with friends for a while. So now I’m here. The problem was, what direction should I take “this”. I was trying to go with what’s hip or what others are doing. But what you will soon learn about me is I just do shit my own way. This was supposed to be a food critic blog, but nah. I have so much more to offer the world than my food whore ways. (I just made that term up).
As far as the name goes, first it reminds me of The Migos Bad and Boujee *Sings “raindrop drop-top”. But mainly, I’m out here eating every way possible, and I’m bourgeoisie with it. With ALL THAT BEING SAID , Welcome to Eat n’ Bougie, A guide to the BBL aka Bad Babe Lifestyle.
