Back in April/May, I decided that this was going to be ASHLEY’S SUMMER OF FUN. The first few months of the year were total shit not great for me personally and I didn’t take any vacations, so by the time June rolled around, I was so ready to GTFO of my depression town. To kick off my two […]

bro float

Remember when this was an acceptable pool float? LOL Showing up to a pool party with one of those busted yoga mats these days is like a dude breaking out a Samsung flip phone to get a girl’s number. Sure it can be endearing (ish?), but bottom line: NOPE. Just like mobile phones, workout classes, […]

hillary-clinton-kim-kardashian-selfie

Funny story: A few months ago at a comedy show, the headliner asked “Do we have any Hillary fans in the house?” And someone called out, “Duff?” Me: (spits vodka out) Whut. No girl (bless your heart), not Hillary Duff. Hillary CLINTON, potentially the next LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD. The presidential candidate who claims to […]

After one of my best friends did a SEXY AF boudoir photo shoot before her wedding, a few of us got to chatting about this rite of passage (would I do one? UM, DUH). And after a few gallons glasses of wine, we had a thought: What if men did these? Cue the uncontrollable laughter […]

ski bros

The basic bitch is so 2014 (seriously Internet, stop with the listicles) but the basic bro lives on! He is confident, he is #blessed, he is fit (or at least embraces his #DadBod), he is handsome (enough), and most of all, he is social media savvy! The basic bro knows Valencia isn’t just a city […]

On the necessity scale of 1 to coffee, cleansing facial wipes are a grande triple nonfat latte (especially when you’re tired/hungover/on-the-go/all of the above). They’re perfect for getting makeup off and cleaning your skin when you just can’t muster the energy for a sink situation — and we all know how important it is to […]

restylane

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Restylane® Lyft and Restylane® Silk. However, the thoughts and opinion are my own. While I’m obsessed with my anti-aging products and regimes, I have not hopped on the injection train quite yet. But that’s not to say that I haven’t been collecting knowledge, tips, and doctor reccs for when […]

‘Tis the season! HARK the angels! Joy to the world! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The time of year when you swear you won’t gain 5-8 pounds again but end up saying ‘fuck it’ by mid-December and spend your evenings sipping chugging red wine and indulging in decadent food instead of at the gym because […]

katy

In a world where celebs flaunt their money on social media with pics of private jets, sold out arena shows, and selfies of their expensive faces (or asses), Katy Perry, real-life unicorn, chose to flaunt her realness with a pic from her birthday dinner at none other than this authentic Italian eatery: That’s right, she and […]

adele

Translation: Hey, what’s up. It’s me, Adele. I know it’s been like, forever and you’ve probably moved on but I wanted to see if you’d be down to meet so we can rehash our awful breakup. I’m sure you already know this but I’m super famous (like, 10 Grammys famous) and I’m actually in LA […]

Showering is overrated, AMIRITE? Oh, you think I’m gross now? Well your mom’s gross. Sorry I didn’t mean that. Your mom is an angel. But seriously, here are six reasons you can skip the sprinkle. 1. You don’t have time. Well you DID have time but then you settled into a Sex and the City […]

IMG_0721

At an event a few weeks ago, I noticed some girls with jewels on their faces, admittedly scoffed at it, and figured this was just some gimmicky thing the event presenter put on (“Come by the Bud Light Lime face jewelry booth for a buzz and a bedazzle!”) and not a new trend I needed to […]

Image-1

Girls are notorious for being late. And no I don’t mean ALL girls so you punctual bitches can refrain from being offended and/or typing out a comment detailing your punctuality and how it’s equated to your superior success so all of us late assholes can feel like loser pieces of shit. Because we already feel […]

bridge_karny

Oh, social media. You have changed the world for so much better and so much worse. You give us laughs, you give us tears. You bring awareness to people in need but turn murderers into celebrities. You give us brilliant pieces of literature but also comment sections that make us lose all faith in humanity. […]

target lady

You may still be recovering from the news bomb last week about TARGET SERVING ALCOHOL. For those of you I’m breaking this information to, stop hyperventilating and put down your car keys because you can’t just head to your local Target and get wine drunk right now, ok? It’s only in the very beginning stages […]

Hey guys, I know I blog about selfies and mascara and engagements and puppies, but I have to change tunes for a moment to address something that has been consuming my mind all week (and in the past), as I’m sure it has with a lot of you. We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled […]

jessimae 1

I knew I was a fan of Jessimae Peluso when I watched her on MTV Girl Code but I didn’t know I had a full-blown girl crush on her until we talked on the phone this week and my boyfriend walked in and said, “You don’t sound that excited when you talk to me.” And […]

jeans 1

Consideration provided by Target You guys, I’m going to be honest with you. I’m a jean snob. Most of my jeans are designer (J Brand, MiH, G-Star, Citizen, Paige, etc.) and I rarely dip below that $100 threshold for a pair (#blessed). So when Target sent me a denim mission, I was slightly skeptical because […]

water cat

Hey guys. Not sure if you knew but water intake is pretty much THE MOST IMPORTANT THING EVER. It affects how you feel, how you look, and your overall health, weight, and energy levels. And of course we know (and despise the fact) that hangovers come from dehydration (FML). We’ve all heard the “eight glasses a […]

HT_proposal_david_carrido_lpl_130709_16x9_608

In my TEN YEARS of being on Facebook and making fun of liking engagement posts, I have never witnessed as many as I did this weekend, and a lot of my friends echoed this sentiment. I’ve seen multiple ones around the holidays or on Valentine’s Day (vom), but this was on a whole new level. I […]

ghost

Ahhh ghosting. The best part of Beetlejuice but the worst part of dating. Most of us have been victimized by it at some point in our dating lives or done the victimizing. If you’re not familiar (lucky you), ghosting is when you’re dating/in a relationship with someone and he/she just disappears without any explanation. It’s […]

bridge ford

Earlier this summer, I was invited to attend the Further With Ford conference in San Francisco/Silicon Valley, which is basically an opportunity for Ford to impress a bunch of writers, bloggers/vloggers, tweeters/hashtaggers, Periscopers/narcissists, Instagrammers/selfie-takers, MySpacers, etc. over a whirlwind three-days. And let me say that Ford goes hard, and impressed we were. Exhibit A: Branded […]

surprised_cat-971440

Call me crazy, but I have never been personally offended by the site of an animal’s asshole. However, in 2015 in a world filled with bare human asses breaking the Internet, apparently this is an issue for some people. So praise Jesus for the TWINKLE TUSH, a feline ass-cessory that turns a kitty’s butthole into bling. Now […]

feature image

Consideration provided by Target. In life, we have both basics and statements. Basics are the girls posting cleavage pics on Instagram disguised as coffee-drinking selfies while statement girls are off doing cool sh*t and not worrying about which filter makes them look the most like a Kardashian. And in fashion we also have basics and […]
