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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Somewhere along the lineage of American history, white girls people thought it would be a good idea to celebrate their birthdays in restaurants with literally everyone they knew in order to feel popular and validated and make innocent servers want to blow their brains out. And listen, I’ve been guilty of this — I remember […]

What would life be without coffee? I LITERALLY CAN’T EVEN imagine. (If you’re not a coffee drinker, feel free to skip over this article but PS, HOW THE FUCK DO YOU FUNCTION ON A DAILY BASIS?) I’m always looking for ways to spice up my coffee routine at home so I don’t spend $238742974 a […]

Instagram is a truly majestical corner of the Internet. I mean, where else IN THE WORLD can you find narcissistic selfies combined with inspirational quotes, gluten-free recipes (omg!!!!), boring baby pics (and the occasional #NoFilter sonogram!), glorious ’90s #TBTs, fashion bloggers’ daily outfits (because you care), LOL-worthy memes and videos, pictures of feet in the sand […]

By Kacie Lett Double shot, non-fat, extra whip, flat white, Mocha Chocalata ya ya. This is for the women standing beside me, amidst the throngs of caffeine aficionados at our neighborhood Starbucks, Caribou, or corner café. You know, just as I do, your coffee order says as much about you as your clothes, your man, […]

It has been a minute (and a half) since I’ve done an A-List, but I have some fun things to share so I figured it was high time to bring back the whole “girl about town” reputation (wait, that sounded slutty…) and show Atlanta some love. But first…HOW ABOUT THIS WEATHER, HUH? Newsflash: It’s winter. Moving […]

New. Year’s. Eve. Three words that can strike fear into the hearts of even the strongest men and baddest bitches. I’ve had a few traumatic December 31 experiences, but I’ve also had some great ones and I have a feeling this year might be the best yet (more on that at the bottom…). But first, […]

Pumpkin season is great and all, but peppermint season is what I live for. Why do you think it’s the last month of the year? It’s literally the headliner for the entire year in flavor profiles. So when DeKuyper put me up to task of creating a holiday cocktail, there was one ingredient and one […]

From Thanksgiving (or Halloween, whatever) to the New Year, I say “It’s the holidays!” approximately 2397298474 times as justification to do whatever I want. I have a hard time concentrating on work; all I want to do is eat, binge drink (red wine), and be merry, and I treat my “winter vacation” like I’m still in […]

Fireball was that perfect guy who always lived in your city but you never knew existed. He was around, but you were too busy making out with Jose, Jim, Jack, or Goose, or partying with your red-headed slut friends to notice. But then finally in 2013 (or maybe it was 2012, you can’t really remember), […]

Staying hydrated is always in style (seriously, it’s like the #1 FREE AND EASY beauty trick), but these days you can make even more of a statement with all the fashionable and functional water bottles on the market. Say sayonara to the days of funk-tasting H2O due to cheap plastic, not to mention the the […]

My brother texted me with a “hilarious” YouTube link and said “I cannot deal with it” and I was like, “Wait, he literally can’t even right now?” I had to watch. Behold Chris D’elia (my #1 comic crush as of late) impersonate drunk girls with incredible accuracy. I mean, HOW CAN HE BE THAT GOOD? […]

Yeah yeah yeah, spring and summer are legit, but let’s be honest—fall is the best season because dudes have NFL, NCAA, and fantasy football, and chicks have EVERYTHING WE LIVE FOR. Am I wearing leggings and UGG slippers as I type this? I mean, does Obama drink lattes? Here are ten reasons to raise a glass […]

A while ago, I wrote about Chuice–a ridiculously healthy raw food/drink that completely changed my life and body way back in October 2011. I drank it nearly every day for two years and even froze that ish and brought it to Europe with me in 2012 because there was no way I could go 10 […]

Peace up, A-town down, shawty! What? Sorry. I got excited because it’s been a minute since my last A List and I can’t wait to share some things going down in our glorious city from food to beauty to BALLS. Now that I have your attention… Bring Me Back Something French Krog Street Market, Ponce […]

After years of waiting, I’ve finally found THE ONE. Obviously I’m talking about a blender. The Blendtec Designer 725 (AKA WildSide) is literally the smartest and most advanced home blender in the world (not mention attractive), so falling in love was easy. It has a 1725 watt motor–the most powerful in residential blending, so it reduces […]

It’s Labor Day weekend but it feels like St. Patrick’s Day was yesterday (WTF). It’s time to squeeze in all the things you planned on doing this summer but didn’t get around to like traveling the world and getting six-pack abs. What? Or just (attempt to) get a tan and eat seasonal foods. Which brings me to […]

Every summer, I go to Dewey Beach (the happiest place on Earth) for a week, and by Day 5, I am a zombie version of myself from all the partying. I somehow make it through the week, but then I need another full week to recover and a full month to get my body back […]

There are few things in life I love more than vodka, coconut, and the beach. Actually, maybe zero things. So when I discovered Pinnacle’s coconut vodka on my way TO THE BEACH, I flipped the F*CK out. After the liquor store employees tranquilized me and I recovered, I got my alcoholic creative juices flowing and […]

I just traveled to Mexico for the first time, and I must admit the thing I looked forward to most was not the beautiful beaches, not the luxurious resort, not the day trips to Playa Del Carmen and Isla Mujeres, not breaking my iPhone and cenote jumping, not the endless margaritas, not the body shots […]

How the FACK is it mid-summer? I feel like Snowpocalypse was just like, last week. This has potential to be the best summer ever because: 1) It’s cooler than hot-as-balls years past, but hasn’t rained every day like last year (the WORST). 2) Killer restaurants (and more importantly, patios) continue to open and lure us in. […]

Welcome to HELL, everyone. Sorry, I mean summer. (Same temperature; I get confused.) A few weeks ago I was sitting outside with a guy friend and without even skipping a beat in conversation, grabbed a napkin and put it down my shirt to wipe my boob sweat. Thank God he was just a friend, but […]
