Ashley Does: What Is Beauty, Really?

What is beauty, to you?

I presented this question to my friends and family and got some pretty amazing answers.

Do you know what not a single person mentioned?

Outward appearance.

No one mentioned a dress size or perfect makeup or fashionable clothes.

Beauty, it turns out, is a mindset. It is an attitude. It is a verb. (It is food trucks, according to my friend Kevin.) Continue reading “Ashley Does: What Is Beauty, Really?”

Ashley Does: Six Steps to Summer Skin Care in a “Dry Heat” Climate With Perfectly Posh

I live in Colorado, which means we hear the phrase “dry heat” an awful lot.

It gets hot here, but since we have next to no humidity, it’s much easier to bear than the summers in, say, Louisiana, where my soon to be sister-in-law (Joey) lives.

She’s coming to Colorado this summer and her impending visit got me thinking about ways to help her care for her skin while she is here.  Continue reading “Ashley Does: Six Steps to Summer Skin Care in a “Dry Heat” Climate With Perfectly Posh”

Ashley Does: It’s Time For An Anti-Aging Routine

Ashley Does: How To Choose The Perfectly Posh Skin Treatment That Best Fits Your Skin Type

We all have skin. And as people with skin, that means that we have to take some time for ourselves every so often and take care of that skin.

My favorite way to get 15 minutes of “me time” and take care of my skin is to treat it to a Perfectly Posh face mask treatment. I do these up to 5 times per week, depending on the type of week my skin has had.

There are two different types of face mask treatments:

“On” Masks and “Off” Masks

The difference between these masks may seem slight, but it can be tricky to decide which type of mask you need, how often, and why.  Continue reading “Ashley Does: How To Choose The Perfectly Posh Skin Treatment That Best Fits Your Skin Type”

Being a woman is exhausting.

It is our nature to take care of everything and everyone around us.

Our families. Our spouses. Our children. Our work. Our homes.

You can’t pour from an empty cup.

Ashley Does: That One Time My Husband Said I Smelled Like An Old Lady

I’ma let that title sink in for a moment.

Could you imagine coming to bed after doing your nighttime skin routine, only to have your husband kiss you goodnight and ask:

“Why do you smell like an old lady?”

Guys I was thirty. I wasn’t old.

Needless to say, I tossed my night creme and started shopping for something new.  Continue reading “Ashley Does: That One Time My Husband Said I Smelled Like An Old Lady”

Ashley Does: How Pantone’s Color Of The Year Is Shaping My 2017

Having been a tomboy for much of my life, I had no idea Pantone was a thing. Or that they decided the hot colors of the year.

Now that I have embraced my inner girly girl and all things pretty, I’m in love with the Pantone website!

This year’s color, Greenery, is right up my alley. It’s beautifully natural, as well as neutral, and will work really well with the colors I already have in my life.

For me, 2017 is all about getting organized and getting rid of the things that distract me so I can really focus on myself, my business, and my family. These gorgeous Pantone palettes are helping me achieve these goals – if it’s pretty, I’m way more likely to follow through!

I’ve been having a lot of fun playing around with different palettes, trying to figure out which to use in my house and which in my wardrobe.

And of course, which to use to accessorize life! Continue reading “Ashley Does: How Pantone’s Color Of The Year Is Shaping My 2017”
