I ran the switch boards this time!!! I didn’t mess up. I guess soon I’ll be by myself and will be really pushing for co-host!!!!

Heavyy was with me again snippets below!!!!

TSWRadio: Season 1, Episode 2

Hey guys!

Until the file gets to me, I’ll post quick recaps of the show. Once we can format them for the blog these will come weekly!

This was my second show and Heavy guest hosted with me, again! (THANKS B!) And we had some shit to say!

Shout out to everyone who was on the live feed. I appreciate you!! We’re gonna try from YouTube moving forward to see if it’ll save w/o Facebook blocking me for having music playing in the background. 

Topic – Netflix and Chill

Basically I learned what Netflix and Chill was back in 2015 and since then it’s been DEATH TK NETFLIX AND CHILL DATES.

Heavy and I discussed how Netflix and Chill is taking over the first date idea. We both agreed, as well as some of our twitter followers Netflix is set to make us bone! 😂😂 I’ve had more Netflix sex than Hulu sex and everyone agreed. Hulu is just better, (I think they need to sponsor me!)

Convo went deep and headed into how desensitized the black community is and rape culture.

We couldn’t save that video portion. 

Topic 2 – Cuffin Season

Basically – this is probably my first cuffin season completely single but wonders, why is it that we press for cuffing season roster. And then wanna switch it up when it’s hot? Like why can’t we be cuffed all year long? Why everybody so quick for something new, instead of keeping what they have, if working through it is obtainable?

Topic 3 – Pride in relationships

I talked about how I put my pride to the side in Love and have always gotten hurt. Heavy and I agreed sometimes it’s necessary as both men and women to put your pride to the side for Love But don’t be a fool In the process.

Men are sensitive and can’t handle what they dish out!! 

Don’t allow someone to make you change your morals or values or sacrifice your pride for the wrong reasons.

Quick snip here on my take of it all…..


​Outside of that. I had fun! Can’t wait for tonight’s show and another update Monday! 

Besos, my loves! 

Congrats, Cardi B!

“Cardi B is the first female rapper to rule without any other billed acts since Lauryn Hill in 1998.”
Shout out to my girl Cardi B on her song Bodak Yellow  making #1 on the Billboard Hot 100!!

It’s not a doubt that she deserves this. I totally rock off to this song every day! It’s apart of the “heading to work mix”. 

If you’re living under a rock, it’s time to come out, jam off with us one time!

We’ll talk more about why this is such a WIN on Saturday @ 10!

Besos, my loves!

Baltimore Event: Community Baby Sprinkle


I had the liberty and blessing to meet this AMAZING woman, Keisha Starr, a few years ago and she has been nothing short of a blessing to those she encounters.

Keisha is a singer, song writer, published author (Check out Diary of a Boss Chick), social worker, mother, sister, friend, daughter, wife; a woman of many hats! She goes hard when she needs too but all out of love.

She strives to make sure that the parents and students in her community are active at both home and school. She helps families facing hardships get the help and assistance they need. As well as just getting the community involved overall. Baltimore is a tough place to live but there are angels, like her, that make the struggle a bit easier. Currently she’s collecting items for her office’s  next Community Baby Sprinkle and she needs our help!

The turnout for the last Baby Sprinkle was nothing short of spectacular. She helped dozens of families get the necessities needed for their new babies and making sure the new parents were okay! It’s a community effort and she will admit; she couldn’t have pulled it off without the community!

The next baby spinkle is 9/27/17 from 9am to 12 pm, located at Arlington Elementary/Middle School. Do you have any new or slightly uses baby clothes and/or items such as car seat, crib, stroller, etc.? They are accepting baby clothes of all sizes, diapers, bath wash and lotions, bottles, pacifiers, etc. If you work in a pediatric office or know someone that does, please ask if they could donate some of the free formulas, diapers, wipes, and rash creams that companies send to them. If you want to donate cash, I can give her PayPal information. She’s very open and transparent and makes all funds public and show how the money is being spent. When she reaches a good amount, she’ll inform and ask people not to donate any more money. Check out pics of the last successful Community Baby Sprinkle below….

She can be reached by clicking here…Please work with us while we rebuild Baltimore and help provide for those in need.

Feel free to share and spread the love. The more that’s received means more families are receiving assistance.

Besos, my Loves!

Baltimore Ceasefire

What started out as a one weekend event to silence the streets of Baltimore from gun violence, came the movement, Baltimore Ceasefire.

Being a Baltimore native, although I’m from the county, it’s heartbreaking when I log on to social media and see the Rest In Peace messages. Sadly, it’s kinda normal now. It’s normal to drive in the city where I now live and see balloons and teddy bears hanging on light posts or bus stop benches. Even worse, seeing candle light vigils being held almost weekly, because another soul has been lost. While death is apart of life, murder should never be normal. 

I initially became involved in helping in the community in 2015 when I along with many other women assisted and supported our strong, brave and TIRED men of Baltimore and the #300Men march North Ave, a road here in Baltimore that connects the east side to the west side. Men of Baltimore walked from the west side to the east and back and it was such an amazing experience! 300menna

The women provided snacks and hydration at check points. Some of us walked with, some of us drove. We all had a job to do and I never felt more important in my life! To be apart of that, is wow. *sigh*

Baltimore Ceasefire hosted its first #BaltimorePeaceChallenge August 4th -6th, and while we did unfortunately lose two lives, Trey & Donte, the weekend was filled with residents just showing love and being peaceful and it was beautiful. There were cookouts, pool parties like it was a big deal and of course the negative Nancy’s were like “told y’all it wouldn’t happen. Don’t know why you tried” let me tell you, while the goal was 0 and we had 2, compared to the multiple shootings and murders the weeks previously? I say it did SOMETHING and everyone involved did too and thus the birth of a movement #BaltimoreCeaseFire365!!!ceasefire

The movement is by the residents for the residents. It’s so much going on in our city and we are TIRED! Sometimes I can’t decipher if I’m hearing gunshots or fireworks and where I’m jumpy and getting to safety I’ll watch my neighbors just sit and carry on. NO!! #DontBeNumb. We have to spread love and positivity. Teach a better way to handle conflict! We HAVE to get this violence out of our streets.

The next Baltimore Peace Challenge is November 3rd – 5th and we are again just asking the community to get together and spread love and positivity. Kick of the holiday season right. 

The Silenced Woman will be hosting its own event in honor of the next Baltimore Ceasefire event. We will be hosting a coat/ hat and back to school drive on November 4th. All items donated will go to homeless and low income families so that we can get them through the winter but also assist with children getting through the rest of their school year. 

TSW will also be accepting donations of no more than $10 to go towards the purchases of these items. All items will be delivered to local homeless shelters and inner city schools. If you would like to donate please do so by clicking here. If you are local and would like to help, contact me at Ashleigh.TSW@gmail.com
 If you would like to host your own event or get more detailed information on how you can help, official Baltimore Ceasefire personnel can be reached @ Bmoreceasefire@gmail.com

Being apart of something that’s bigger than yourself is amazing. I know my purpose in life is to help and the whole idea of this makes my heart happy. Help me, help my city.

But, I said what I said…

I never understood why when it comes to spending my money, I have to yell at people. As you notice, I am, we are moving into a whole different direction and I have been working really hard to update the layout, getting graphics and stuff done. A lot of stuff, I can do on my own but truthfully with two children and a full time job, it’s just easier to pay. poco

 

I solicited a company to create a media kit with the hopes of getting more promo popping for us. Like the idea I have for the blog and radio show is HUGE, and I am not in the mood to deal with obstacles that can be easily avoided, like doing what I’ve paid you to do. TSW, is written BY a black woman FOR black women. Now that doesn’t mean that if you aren’t black, I don’t want you because I do. But my blog and my brand represents my “sisters” and I. bey

The company sent me samples where there wasn’t a woman of color in the sample and when I asked for it to be changed, they mirrored the image and darkened the person who was in the original sample. Can we say pissed? Like, bruh, you couldn’t find a legit black person for my request? Instead, you play me and edited the image as if I am a dummy and wouldn’t notice the difference? Upon expressing that, I haven’t heard anything. I don’t know what that means but, it really plucked my nerves. dmbw

Simply put – I SAID WHAT THE FUCK I SAID! As the owner of this brand, this movement, this EVERYTHING, I have the right to be bitchy when you can’t bring my vision to life, right? Or is this God’s way of telling my lazy ass to make time and do the shit my self?

I would love to hear from you! Am I wrong or right? What would you do? Are you enjoying the blog?

Make sure to follow us on all our social media platforms. #TSWRadio, will air its first show 09/23. If you haven’t already, please download the link best appropriate to you and tune in. I cannot WAIT!issa
