Vibes I’m Into

1. How to NOT Look like a Hot Mess
Don’t rush into work every day. Leave earlier so you get there on time. Wake up a little earlier. Take an earlier train or subway. You’ll look well-rested and prettier to people passing by when you’re leisurely walking instead of running like a #crazybetch.

2. Officially switching over to hot caffeinated beverages as of today because I like to make weird rules for myself like that. But really, just so I can break them.

3. The best box to ever receive, ever.


Relax, it’s nail polish. I know… this color is a fantastic red and I’m obsessed.


4. P.S. Dept

An iPhone app established in 2012 that’s your personal shopper – it does the research for you. Text it what you’re looking for and a real-life store employee comes back with options at various locations. You are able to simply add to your cart & check out. The personal shopper takes care of it, sends a receipt & gets you on your way! Simplicity. Awaiting my newest addition coming from LA – check back!


5. Life looks better in black. Much better. Black sunglasses. Tom Ford sunglasses.

Replacement for my Chanel’s. RIP


I keep things black & white. Mostly black. It looks better. Sometimes red.

Quality VERSUS Quantity. Get much less, way BETTER shit.

#QuarterLifeCrisis – I’m going to be a very lonely person with a lot of really nice shit.

“Quality is never an accident, it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction, and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”  – William A. Foster 

When I try to explain to people how I can go ahead and spend  $49.00 plus tax for a lipstick, they are typically shocked and/or appalled by my behavior. But, what they don’t know is that it’s made by Tom Ford. C’mon. American designer, Tom Ford’s beauty line is beyond amazing. Nude Vanille is to die for. It is the PERFECT shade of nude. I’m telling you – try it – you will NOT be sorry. And if you absolutely hate it – go to the beauty counter and return it. Because it’s good shit – if you’re really that disappointed and really that sad that you spent your $49 on it, they take that AMAZING shit back.


“Rare and exotic ingredients including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated color pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.”

I am 100% the type of person who would rather have very few items that are absolutely amazing and that I am obsessed with than have about 32 items that are just OK and I wouldn’t mind if I never saw it again and HECK, I probably already lost it and don’t even recall where.

This post sounds pretentious. I should start over. 

My name is Ashley and I’m a really authentic person. I like to stay true and authentic to how I feel, what I believe in and what I want. I love myself and my choices. I love nice things. I would rather have nice shit than shitty shit. If the general public becomes obsessed about something, I’m already over it. So when I’m all alone for my mid-life crisis, at least my lipstick will be fucking awesome.
