One of my favorite Saved and Single Diva’s Los Angeles Resident and Chicago Native Ashley Leggs has her very own podcast. It is dedicated to inspiring and motivating women of color to take up space in the rooms that they stand in while they fiercely go after what they deserve, and show up as their most unapologetic, most authentic self.
She is by far my favorite podcaster (is that a word?!)
I start my week listening to her podcast, she updates on Monday’s, and it is 15–20 mins of encouragement, laugher, and helpful tips to carry you through the week!
We get so caught up in making a list of the type of man we want but we don’t have a list of the type of woman we need to be first. We asking Ciara for the prayer she prayed when she got Russell because we want a good man that treats us right and loves us to no end, and shows appreciation to us and our family and our children but we haven’t taken a moment to pray and ask God to prepare us…-Ashley Leggs
Her voice is soothing and calm. Her message is pure and always resonates with my spirit! My girl is not afraid to incorporate the Word of God in her podcast. She is genuine and engages with her followers! Love, love, love her!

My Obsession with Body Butter
Alexa play “Shea Butter Baby” by Ari Lennox
Once you use body butter you won’t go back!
I absolutely love Elle Jae Essentials, Elle Vie, and Brooklyn Body Butter.
Supporting these three beautiful black women entrepreneurs has changed my skin care/self care regimen. I absolutely refuse to wear lotion now.
Their products are shea butter based, and extremely moisturizing! All three brands produce wonderful scents and offer unscented butters.
They also offer various other skincare products, and products for men.
