I just turned #Forever31, and I look back on the past year as the best yet–growth, change, struggle, triumph, love, loss, travel, and lots of vodka (per usual). I decided to compile some things I learned this year (or kinda’ already knew, but really had experiences with). There are definitely more (for example, how to zoom […]

Oh Dewey Beach, Delaware–my favorite place on Earth and birthplace of some of the most glorious cocktails ever invented. Since I go to this majestical slice of coastal heaven every July for vacation, this month’s #PinnacleCocktailClub posts will be honoring some of the tried and true Dewey Beach elixirs. (And never forget that the standard […]

Atlanta is POPPIN’ this summer, my friends. (Who still says poppin’ besides Sway from MTV?) So many cool places have opened and many more to come. Here are a couple I’ve visited recently (one in particular I’m freaking out over) and one VERY MAJOR beauty boutique opening this weekend. Also….summer date ideas. The Painted Pin […]

Bananas are the Ryan Gosling of fruit. For the past six months, I’ve been eating a banana every day (sometimes TWO) and it has been a life changer. Check out the reasons why nature’s yellow boomerang is truly the most glorious of all. 1. Beats bloat. If you’re swollen from a salty meal (read: 829374928374 […]

It’s almost the freakin’ weekend, which in Atlanta means time to eat, drink, patio hop, go to a strip club (probably), and pray it doesn’t monsoon. Put this stuff in your Palm Pilot. EAT YOUR FACE OFF Smokebelly BBQ This is the new down-home Southern joint in Buckhead from our dude-bestie Trey and the guys […]

Vodka at the beach is a no-brainer. Well, vodka anytime is a no-brainer. This past weekend was Hangout Fest, and when I party/festival hard for 3+ days, the smartest thing to do is stick with vodka. Sure, I’ll have some shots here and there (duh), but I steer clear of wine, brown liquor, tequila (it really […]

I’m Ashley and I love vodka. Shocker. But now I’m even more legit in my dedication to this majestical beverage because I’m officially a part of Pinnacle Vodka’s Cocktail Club. This means I will be drinking and posting about all its glorious flavors and concoctions throughout the summer. While Pinnacle is a lower priced vodka, it’s […]

HOLA AMIGOS. (That is “hello friends” for you gringos.) ‘Tis time for one of my favorite holidays because I know I am part Mexican no matter what my mom and skin tone say: CINCO DE MAYO. This glorious excuse for cheese dip consumption, tequila chugging sipping, and questionable decisions whilst wearing sombreros falls on a […]

Recently, I did a post about the five fattest foods girls love to eat, and I think it got a pageview or two (million). Turns out, we ladies love feeding our inner fat girl and talking about it. But we all have an inner Gisele, too, and she likes to eat different stuff. Like this… […]

I worry that someday it’s going to come out that Kind bars’ nutritional labels are wrong and they really are packed with calories and sugar (Kalteen Bar-style), because I just can’t understand how they are THAT GOOD and still good for you. It’s safe to say I have a unhealthy healthy obsession with these gems. They’re […]

Not only is it Easter weekend, but it’s #FlashbackFriday, so I wanted to grace you guys with this gem of my brother and me. Easter must have also fallen on 4.20 back in 1990 because that bunny is clearly stoned. Before we jump into the weekend agenda, let’s take a look at the… SELFIE OF THE […]

Yesterday, a driver who looked like a retired mob boss (name: “Bill Brown”) picked me up in a black car and drove me to Kim Zolciak’s house to drink and have breakfast for dinner with her and a handful of other media folks. Is this real life? The most famed Bravo hair housewife (in my […]

Most girls, no matter how thin, have an inner fat kid who comes out on special occasions (read: when certain foods are presented to her). In honor of Fat Tuesday, I’d like to present these glorious bundles of empty calories. 5. Cheese dip and chips. Walk into a Mexican/Tex-Mex restaurant during happy hour/dinner and you’re […]

This weekend, I did not have one drink. And no, I was not in jail, rehab, or a dry county. I did not go out, put makeup on, wear anything without an elastic waistband, and barely interacted with people. And I loved it. What…a loser. Mind you, I had my weekend on Wednesday with the […]

Cupcake eating is an art form. You dive into a delicious morsel of moist (ew) cake covered in icing without lacking the proper skills and you’ll end up with cream all over your face (never a good look). Here are five ways to eat a cupcake like a classy lady…or a total skank. You’ll know […]

Some things in life truly baffle me: Nickelback fans, Stonehenge, Ed Hardy wearers, people who still watch soap operas, and most of all….the MISSING EMOJIS. Why are there TWO camels, but not one black person? And two Halloween icons (ghost + pumpkin), but no Thanksgiving turkey? It’s bullshit and we all know it. Most recently, […]

Put on some slow jams, grab your lotion/lube (or whatever), and get ready for a whole lotta’ lust. It comes courtesy of a friend who I both love and hate because she posts pictures that make me hate my life since I’m not eating what’s she’s eating, force me to lick my computer screen (not […]

A vegetable the shape of a penis, but looks like a vagina. That’s right. A hermaphrodite carrot. Eat up.

I can’t figure out why the kids run past my house on Halloween each year. I’m always dressed up in a cool costume (a carrot) and I hand out the good stuff (fresh kale) instead of cheap Sweet Tarts! And I’m very friendly, inviting them to stop and burn off some of that candy so […]

I’m always down to try a new alcohol. Who am I kidding, I’m always down for any alcohol, new or old (but not expired……past six months). Over the weekend, I got my hands on some Tiziano pinot grigio and prosecco ($10-$12) and am a new super-fan of this authentic, affordable Italian vino. I’m also a […]

It was a moment on Facebook none of us could believe and will never forget. Three fashion/beauty bloggers who have tirelessly dedicated our lives and careers to staying on top of trends, and we realized we had not yet experienced one of the country’s biggest crazes. And I’m not talking about twerking (I think we’ve […]

Vodka is my soulmate. We met in high school and fell in love immediately (although we were a lot less classy back then and he sometimes went by the name of “Popov”). We were on-and-off-again throughout college, all the while continuing to mature, although we’d occasionally have late-night fights where I’d end up crying, throwing […]

Health/fitness expert Cara Weaver is back and I LOVE what she is about to share. For one, she is going to explain HOW THE HELL to make a kale salad. I often get the kale salads at Whole Foods, but when I buy the greeny goodness and try to whip one up at home, I […]

When I was in my young to mid-twenties, vacation meant drinking as much as possible, making out with at least one (or four) random dudes, and doing absolutely nothing responsible like answering work emails or exercising. But these days, I’m more into fitness and maintaining my bod while on vacay so I don’t come back […]
