Exactly one week before I was asked to go on a press trip to Aruba, I was going through a bit of a rough patch in my personal life and literally said to myself, “I need to go on a trip — like, an out-of-the-country trip.” AND VOILA, I got the invite! I felt very […]

In case you missed my 87-minute long Facebook Live announcement or haven’t perused my Instagram (read: dog and pizza gallery) in a while, I moved from Atlanta to THE BIG APPLE. And no, I don’t actually call it that because I’m not your dad or a midday talk show host (unfortunately).  I moved to New […]

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 […]

Unless you were one of those unicorn children with a perfectly polished stay-at-home and/or overbearing mother who made sure your hair was always on point from birth ’til now (and is probably still meddling), you had at least one to six periods in your life when your hair was an absolute WTF disaster…ESPECIALLY if you […]

****Guest post from Allison of AA**** You guys. I have to tell you about my night.  It is currently 10:42 p.m. and I am sitting at my kitchen table; the exact spot I was sitting in at approximately 9:30 p.m. when I first saw it.   I’LL START FROM THE BEGINNING. I took a later […]

Maybe it’s because it’s on a Saturday, maybe it’s because social media gets more out of control every year minute, or maybe it’s because I did an 8-minute TV segment on it (in which I got called out for my Tindering), but Valentine’s Day is on steroids AF this year. Not to mention I just […]

I love Halloween. Like, really really (add 12 more reallys) love it. When you were little, it was an excuse to get dressed up, get attention, act silly with your friends, and eat candy until you passed out. Now it’s an excuse to get dressed up, get attention, act silly with your friends, and drink […]

***Guest post by Lynsey of Sugar Free Ear Candy*** My most innocent girlfriend called me the other day and asked if she should get a Brazilian wax. Before I could begin laughing at the mere thought of her taking her monogrammed panties off in front of a stranger to get her virginal crotch ripped to […]

Before I left for Mexico, I wanted to be extra prepared (for once) to document my trip via iPhone. I picked up a portable charger and a monopod (AKA selfie stick) so I could take photos and video without my mug being all up in the camera and you guys could see more of the […]

This standup bit from female comedian Iliza Shlesinger (who Total Sorority Move dismissively refers to as “this girl”) has been making the rounds this week because as TSM says, she so “hilariously describes why girls freaking hate each other.” I happened to see it for the first time whilst on a hysterical (and very NSFW) email […]

You know that feeling when you work a crazy 10+ hour day…and you get home…and take your bra (or pants) off? Orgasmic. You guys. That’s how I feel when I put on my new Sanuk sandals. I have basically worn them every day since they arrived on my doorstep and I don’t know how I […]

I had just broken things off with my long-distance, on-again-off-again boyfriend and was driving 7 hours back to Atlanta on a good 45 minutes of sleep (when you know you’re having “the talk” in the morning, it doesn’t make for the best shut-eye). In other words, I was thisclose to dousing myself in gasoline at […]

Last week, I went to the Lunch Crunch class at my yoga studio, which is a 60-minute power session in the torture chamber extra hot room. This class is a doozy, and it’s only an hour because if it were any longer, it would be considered human cruelty. I set up my mat, and since […]

Oh, April Fool’s. We have a love-hate relationship because my mom used to get me EVERY YEAR when I was a kid. I remember her waking me up at the tender age of oh, 7, and convincing me my hair had turned green overnight. Full blown tears before I could get to a mirror. But […]

What…..a week it’s been. It’s moments like these when you realize just how much time people have on their hands. I received a smidge (read: gargantuan shit ton) of backlash from my post about “crashing the Georgia Half-Marathon” in which people called me a “bandit” (hilarious term, btw) and treated me like I just blew up […]

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 […]

By guest blogger Kelley Hagen I’ve had horrific periods since puberty hit. Like, fetal-position-nausea-cramping-migraines-for-three-days kind of periods that made me want to kill myself. I seriously would’ve lost less blood from a gun shot wound, and I suffered through this torture month after month for 17 years because I was unwilling to take pharmaceuticals to […]

I was leaving Atlanta’s “swankiest and sexiest” nightlife establishment, Privé, on Saturday night (obviously I was leaving; that place is awful) when I was approached by a homeless man, who asked me for money to buy food at the nearby Publix. I had an Uber car two seconds away and no cash on me (shocker), […]

While I was drinking Europe dry traveling last week, I re-posted an article I wrote a year prior about my mortifying vibrator incident in London’s Heathrow airport. Well the Internet (and self-pleasure) Gods were smiling on me because a few days later, I received this email: I mean…if you ever get an email that says […]

I was 7 or 8 years old (read: at least 5 years out of potty training), and I had just put on a brand new outfit and was getting ready to go outside and play. By outfit, I mean a monochromatic sweatsuit (this particular one was pink) because apparently, those were my jam when I […]

As our friend Tom so eloquently stated, “Halloween was designed for hooking up. This is a holiday where you can rely on your costume to draw attention instead of your boring personality and average looks.” Add alcohol into this mix and you have people getting down with members of the opposite sex (or same sex […]

Sara DiVello is the author of Where in the OM Am I? and is hosting events this weekend in Atlanta (more info following her story). * I was in the ninth circle of PR hell and my boss was the devil. Unfortunately, this wasn’t my first dip in the lousy job/bad boss pool, but it was […]

Hey gals. Your new bestie Tom here. I want to give you a smidge of advice and share the story of how the most attractive girl on this sweet Earth rejected me when I asked her out, BUT made feel like a million bucks at the same time. Now, you might not know this, but rejection […]

Let me open up to you guys for a sec. (Don’t worry; I’m not going to cry.) Working for yourself is undeniably awesome in a lot of ways and it was the number one thing I wanted in my career: The freedom, no asshole bosses, vacations when you want, working in pajamas (or nothing at […]
