Welcome to Witty + Pretty! Sit down, pour yourself a drink, and let’s get to know each other.
Oh, you’re at work? My bad. (But it IS 5 o’clock somewhere.)
I’m Ashley and I started this website out of an obsession with beauty and passion for funny (#shocker). I’m also the Atlanta editor of DailyCandy, so that basically makes me an expert on all things girly by default. Right? Well, that, and the fact I have such an obscene amount of makeup and other beauty-related products that I even keep some in my office/storage room so boys who come over don’t judge me.
Wait, did I just admit that?
Anyway, I love manis, pedis, massages, airbrush tans, trying new fitness classes, juicing, eyelash extensions, and discovering natural skin and hair remedies. Also, I love vodka. And cute guys who make me laugh.
I’m a music freak and am always searching for the latest tracks to get me going on a run or before a night out (ie. to sing at the top of my lungs in the shower). I die for a perfect blowout at Drybar, especially when they keep my wine glass full.
But I believe the most important element in anyone’s quest for pretty is having fun and being happy. We all should be laughing all the damn time and not taking ourselves too seriously. Nothing is prettier than a smile, and if someone is bitter/judgmental/sucks at life and can’t laugh at him/herself, no amount of beauty products and treatments can make that look good. Girl, you know it’s true.
On W+P, you’ll find your favorite girly things with a (hopefully) funny twist. We’ll talk lipstick, hair, food, fitness, nails, playlists, waxing, tans, bra fittings, low-cal drinks, sex toys (whaa?), travel, hangover cures, beauty tip, tricks, bad dates, and so much more. And we can’t forget the dude contributors letting us into the male mind one paragraph at at time….
