IM JUST ASHLEY TURNS 1!!

Friday, May 29, 2015

Hi all!

I've got a very very exciting post for today, and although it might be a bit late (i may or may not have totally forgotten to celebrate this) i'd just like to say a massive thank you to all of you for getting me to where i am today, as my blog, formerly known as Inhale Grace Blog and Echoed Blog, turns 1!
I was meant to post this on the 18th of May when i actually did open up my blog and uploaded my very first blog post, but being me, i though that i had started it in June and forgot to do anything for the 18th!
I'm going to keep this short as i've got something for you all to watch down below, but thank you so so so much for all sticking with me and watching my videos and checking out my blog posts, i've grown so much as a blogger since i started and now have over 5,600 views on my blog, all thanks to you guys!
So to celebrate one whole year of posting pictures, OOTD after OOTD, lots of DIY's, wishlists, mixtapes, hauls, colabs and Q + A's i've made a short video, i really hope you enjoy it!

JACKET ON, JACKET OFF

Friday, May 15, 2015









wearing: dress - H&M, jacket - Factorie, necklace - Ivy Designs

こんにちわ
So i'm finally getting back into the swing of things! Posting on my instagram once every two or so days, uploading a new blog post every week, and making more and more necklaces for my shop Ivy Designs! This necklace that i'm wearing has to be my favourite, the colours go with absolutely everything! This outfit is really just all my favourite pieces at the moment put together in one outfit, and luckily they all worked together! 
Smock dresses + bomber jackets + handmade necklaces = best outfit ever!

It's been a pretty hectic week for me, with only another more stressful week to come. I've got four tests in three days and i am not one bit excited! And to top it all off, i've got to write a whole essay as well! Fun.... I'm going to make the most of the weekend, watching Marvel movies and taking photos.
