Me and the mirror
Mirror Mirror what do you see?
I see Esha.
I see Esha only 40 pounds lighter wanting to lose 20 or 30 more pounds for herself.
I see my rich espresso skin color.
I see my clear glowing skin after putting baby oil all over my body.
I see myself and I am happy so I smile.
I love my full figured-ness.
I want to wear clothing from an Ashley Stewart boutique and costume jewelry too.
I want to wear the faux pearls I already own sometimes too.
I want to organize my closet and winter waldrobe.
I see myself in a red Ashley Stewart sweater dress next January when my 32nd birthday comes around and having a ball with my best girlfriends Window shoppin’ at the mall and buying lipsticks and perfume.
