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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Get your weekend on, warriors. WHAT UP WEST EGG Did you guys know West Egg (one of the best breakfast/brunch spots in all the land) serves chicken and waffles on Friday nights? I mean, WHAT? If that isn’t an amazing Southern date night (or eat alone in the corner with your iPhone night), I don’t […]

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 […]

Can we all agree that Jimmy Fallon is probably the best human on the planet? Thought so. I’m obsessing over The Tonight Show now that he’s hosting, and was so glad to see that they booked THE Harry Styles during the first week! This interview is obviously incredible, but when Harry reveals his favorite food […]

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 […]

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 […]

What? You don’t have a personal chef at home preparing healthy, delicious meals for you to sit down to when you come home from a long day starving and ready to attack your pantry? Well me neither. And until I do (a girl can dream), I have to make this happen on my own OR […]

Avocados are one of my favorite foods. They go with so many dishes, are delicious to eat alone, and offer TONS of health benefits like vitamin K, lots of fiber (always needed for digestion and weight loss/maintenance), all the “good fats,” and potassium (even more than bananas!). They even protect you from eye degeneration and […]

Liza and I are officially on Day 4 of the Roots juice cleanse and we got 99 problems, but overeating ain’t one. I’ll be honest–I am feeling pretty awesome. I’m clear and focused, have plenty of energy, and my abs are looking more defined by the day. (I’m sure a lot of you are wondering […]
