My name is Ashley. I am happily married, living in the beautiful Arizona desert. My husband and I are proud parents of what we call, our 11 year old forever puppy, Kona. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see her daily on my stories. She is a rescue pup, and we have had her since she was just 2 months old. Safe to say Kona is our babe, we love her so much.
I began this blog to share my many passions in life, including; sustainable & budget friendly fashion, food, fitness and living an overall balanced lifestyle. I am the Regional Leader of Phoenix Blogger Babes. I am an avid thrifter, especially when it comes to my closet. Some call me the “Dollar Day Queen”, as you can almost always find me at my neighborhood Goodwill every Thursday for their dollar day sale. I wear that crown proudly. I am one who believes an outfit can totally boost your self-esteem. I love to constantly update my wardrobe, but in an ethical and budget-friendly way. As a fashion influencer and Instagram stylist, there is constant pressure to have the ‘next new thing.’ As nice as that would be, I find more happiness and satisfaction in the everyday thrift score. You truly just never know what you will find! Why bother having the same thing as everyone else, when you have the opportunity every day to let your true style shine?
I have been living with a permanent injury for over 10 years now. There is nothing that can be done to fix it (at least at this time), and it leaves me dealing with chronic nerve pain daily. I strive daily to rise about my injury and not allow it to define who I am. It is a difficult journey, and certainly not a planned part of my life. I am so blessed by my family, friends and a strong community that are always there to support me.
I can promise you that all my content you find will remain true to my brand, and 100% honest. Thank you for being here.
