Hey can you do reviews on the makeup gift sets? You can do that from the comfort of your home. I love your channel. I like all these brands and would like to get the little gift sets to try them out but sometimes they are not brown girl friendly. Just an idea. 😁
Whew I feel you on the seasonal depression but we gon’ make it through this year! One day at a time 😘
Fav Dallas restaurants you’ve tried
Recreate another youtubers makeup look outside your comfort zone
I just love your care free attitude that I am going to incorporate it into my life, I suffer from depression to so Ive been looking for inspiration and you are IT. But the "there re children on the loose" took me out i say the same thing when random kids are running around and I am a mom lol. LOVE
Thank you! I just want to make sure ya'll know seasonal depression just doesn't go away, I personally choose to vlog on days when I feel up to it -- which is why this vlog only showed two days out of the week instead of the usual five or seven. It's okay to not feel okay and just feel that, that's to be expected, just take advantage of those days where you have a bit more energy! x
In my opinion, I would love to see your life even if you are feeling down or whatever you're going through that day (if you're willing to vlog it) because it lets me know I have someone who I can relate to and it lets me know that we're all human and we go through things! 🤷♀️😊💛 your wonderful, talented, & beautiful inside & out Ms. Ashley Devonna! 💛👏👑
I disagree with the comment that “nobody wants to watch seasonal depression vlogs” in the aspect of you being the only one with it. Sometimes you can be a voice in helping others who suffer from the same feelings around the holidays. I know you have helped me, and although you do not have to go into full details in your videos, just to know that there is a regular woman out here slaying the game with “seasonal depression” and keeping it 💯 also, it helps others to know that they are not alone. I am the same when the holidays come around. I honestly didn’t understand it until I saw it in one of your vlogs! I just pray that you continue to be an inspiration for “us”! Luv ya💋
I love your honesty. I hope you are feeling better. I love your vlogs. I do want to see more chit chats. Your chit chats are like therapy girl talks for me. Hauls, lookbooks and basically bring old YouTube back. Tags and all that good stuff.
Yeah seasonal depressional is no joke! I have depression, anxiety and PTSD and it's a struggle. Anywho, you can def do a winter clothing essentials video, you and bae can try lol to bake some cookies and do a mukbang, a decorate with me video, holiday makeup looks, nighttime routine, morning routine...
Always being the real you and I love it ! What about home decor ideas for the holidays or DIY projects. Or even videos on dupe makeup, clothes, and accessories items would be nice since it is gift buying season
i need all the help i can get w/ makeup so when you’re down i will definitely accept a makeup tutorial, light music in the background and a clear view of what you’re using on the screen .. hope this helps a little ? this way you don’t even have to find words to fake “happy”.. also beating your face for a vid may push you to then go out somewhere after, getting you out the house & possibly lifting your mood
I’m praying against that depression girl,hoping this will be the last year you experience it!! But girl talks about hygiene,how to carry yourself,relationships,diys,cooking,how to become more social,etc.
Monty Girl I’m honestly not sure if I want to decorate for Christmas. Decor hasn’t gone over well on my channel thus far, and a bunch of criticism about a tree and lights and decorations sounds exhausting 🤷🏾♀️
Here’s a little advice , take everything with a pinch of salt xx you could do cute festive themed challenges , like the gingerbread challenge or something. But everything will be okay and you will get through it ❤️
Hey Ash praying you feel better and God lifts you high in spirit, happiness, and every other possible aspect. I go through the same thing as well, but I try to do things that’ll keep me focused. Also, Amerie also has another EP called 4AM Mulholland (give “curious & see me cry”) a listen I think you’ll love it. Keep being the beautiful talented and classy young woman that you are. God bless 😘😘😘😘
Thank you Ashley for the candid talk. That is one of the aspects we love about you is your transparency. I suffer from depression, so I totally get it. And I know there are other viewers who go through seasonal depression and other types of depression too. We appreciate you for being real. I believe you will be watched if you tape at home or out of the house. It is you and your content that attracts the viewers. Oh, and shoot me some motivation over here by the way graduating Dec 14! Funny how I can get excited after typing this and looking at the date. Yet, it is overwhelming.
I talk about it in this chit chat -- https://youtu.be/lhG02uRQ4YU
Being hypervisible and opening up about sensitive topics does help people, but it also sheds light on what you're struggling with and literally invites negative, vile, hateful, hurtful comments in.
You all may not see those types of comments or have to read through those type of DMs, but I unfortunately I do, and having strangers poke fun at your mental health isn't something someone wants to wake up to and deal with everyday. So to protect myself, I'd rather not go in depth and just take care of myself off camera when I feel the affects of my seasonal depression x
When I go to my esthetician she'll do multiple different things depending on what my skin needs -- extractions, a soothing/hydrating mask, light therapy, etc. then I'll go to my dermatologist to get prescription skin care products and use those products in the morning and evening as my at home skin care routine! But yes, facials work, and if you're having issues like acne, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots, going to the dermatologist and the esthetician (both black women) work well together!
Some ideas of videos: Christmas decor hauls/decorating. Gift idea for significant other/family videos. Holiday party Look book! We will watch anything you post love! Wishing you the best this holiday season! ❤️
1. More makeup videos. I get a lot of my makeup ideas from you! 2. Clean with me (I get motivation when I see other clean 😂) 3. Organization video (again i get motivated and get ideas) ummm, I’ll be back when I think of more things 😂
I love youuuu!!!❤️❤️
But you can do like a Q&A, holiday makeup looks, tell us about the boyfriend that popped up and we knew nothing about, tips & tricks on makeup videos, more cooking videos!! We just want to see YOU. Breathe deeply & take it day by day, we’re here for you!!
Hey Ash! Love ya girl, & I totally understand how you're feeling (as far as SD); but don't claim that for yourself! I speak joy and peace into your spirit in ALL seasons! It's a journey, but it is possible. <3
Awwww I wished you'd wear the purple one. You look majestically like a Queen in it. All you needed was gold accessories to make it work(gold clutch, gold strappy sandals and simple gold jewelry) but you look so gorgeous in the black😍😍😍
Edit: You're probably experiencing "winter blues" maybe you need a week or two away from YouTube to plan your next step on this platform. Anyways your vlogs are amazing!! You could switch it up and show us a cooking vid(you're fave dish to make), react to an old video of yours or even someone else's, you didn't do a Halloween vid(maybe a belated one for next year), A vid about your fave Christmas movies, Q&A(ask subscribers to send you would you rather??), an exercise vid(we need an update sis cuz you look snitch snatch😭) so much you could show us, anyways we here always supporting. Sending all love and support!💕💕💝
Would be sooo excited to see your take on blog as. Especially that now you have your own place. In terms of non-vlog style videos I love ur sit down chatty videos on topics we can all relate too, don’t care so much for the make-up part but definitely like to hear what you have to say on different topics (e.g. self-development, adulting,friendship, relationships etc). You should consider more sit down videos like discussing a particular topic as well as Q&A’s. And maybe even some cooking videos. That just a bit of my two cents lol. But I definitely love your vlogs mainly 💕
Awww Ashley😢!! I love when you open up,in a sense im the same way. I want to go out if i have to.. At home volgs are find to like you can declutter video's,organization video's maybe cooking video's or DIY's what ever makes you happy. Love you 😘
Girl... I thought I was the only one who has depression around this time. I believe it's because we don't get enough sunlight lol. That purple dress was beautiful and how did I know you was going to pick that black dress. Y'all looked so nice together.
I get depressed around this time because my father passed away Nov 1st so I understand the seasonal depression. Then I lose motivation.... travel more, do what makes you really happy on a daily during this season and definitely keep a mental journal... that helps me a lot
I love u so much Ashley! I literally have watched every last bit of your content over the past 3 months. I definitely understand where you are coming from with the seasonal depression, because this is my season as well. I personally would love to get the "real" on how you feel & how you get through it, but I completely get it if you decide not to due to the reasonings you explained. Keep up the great work, it was nice to see your face again huntyyy 💁🏾😘
I would love to see
* nighttime routine
*spa/pamper day at home
* how do you care for your hair underneath wigs.
* cooking videos(like the taco Tuesday with shrimp tacos)
*make up haul (“what’s In my makeup bag”)
I battle with depression in general. Plus I am a introvert on top of that. Maybe you can do some DIY projects, tips on decorating your home for the holidays, and more hair and makeup tutorials. All these are things you can do from home. I will keep you in prayer. New subscriber.

Let me just leave my (easy) video suggestion here: how to maintain false lashes.
I just started really wearing them and I always want throw them away after two wears. Seemingly, most people get multiple uses out of theirs. Send help!
I don’t know about everyone else, but I know me personally, I’d love to see any content from you period. I’m going to support you through the good days and the bad days. We’re all human and we all go through it. So I guess the real question is what would you feel most comfortable posting during those hard times? If it’s routine videos, makeup videos, hauls, decor, hair, girl talks...literally anything. I’m going to watch! Love you 😘
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
