Hey y’all! Happy Easter!!! What an amazingly beautiful day that the Lord has blessed us with this Sunday! Today, I’m going to be sharing with you the first installment of a new series of blog posts on ASH CARO entitled “The Chatterbox Diaries.” I thought the name was fitting because people have coined me as a chatterbox my whole life. In an attempt to be transparent to my readers so that you can get to know me and my life more I will be writing these posts. The post is about as self-explanatory as the title. Just so you get a little preview, I will be talking about likes, dislikes, life lately, things that make me laugh, quick tips, items that I am wishlisting, and SO MUCH MORE. Get ready, I tend to be a chatterbox! 😉
Waking up WAY too early
Has anyone ever been woken up too early by someone who is not yourself? Today– My little sister decided to wake me up at 7:05 AM to get ready for church at 9:45 AM. Please note that is more than 2 hours before I have to leave the house. I LOVE SLEEPING. It took everything in my body to keep me from screaming, I dislike waking up as well. Please tell me I’m not alone on this. Par for the course. Happy Easter.
Conquering the 3hr Pinnacle of My Existence
SO as most of you know, and for those who don’t, I am a junior in high school. A weekend or so ago, I faced the pinnacle of my existence, the ACT. I mean not exactly my existence but the one standardized test that shows the worth in all of my years in school. I, honestly, am so ADD it took all of my energy just to sit still and let alone focus. If you were wondering, I was actually completely and utterly brain-dead afterwards. I haven’t gotten my scores back yet but I would be surprised if I did horribly, well maybe not. I honestly just can’t believe I’m still alive, I definitely thought I was going to die at Broughton that day.
Ashley Caroline, Interior Designer?
Lately, I’ve been interior design shopping as my childhood best friend is moving into to her dorm at the University of Florida next year (GO GATORS!) and her and her parents have asked me to decorate it. I have been putting all of my years of watching HGTV to use. It has been so fun dorm shopping for her and with her. Currently her and I have found one pillow for her bed from Anthropologie which can be found here! I will be doing a reveal when she is all moved in! Until then, stay tuned for the reveal and more sneak peeks at the bedding and everything else along the way.
This Easter Sunday my little sister Anna Cate (11) was baptized which made me such a proud big sis. SO weird to think of how old she is. I feel like she was 5 just a month ago. I got baptized on Easter Sunday in 2011 and it brought back so many great memories. 🙂
The Easter Bunny also came and brought this makeup obsessed fashion blogger a Sephora gift card so get ready to see some new goodies soon! And LOTS of Lindt chocolate which is my absolute favorite!
These Rag & Bone white jeans that are way too expensive for any justification so I will just admire from a far. But if you win the lottery and want to donate the cause (my closet, I mean) Let me know!
These Deepa Gumani Earrings that would be perfect for prom or any other formal event. If you live in Raleigh, you can find these in store at Uniquities (one of my fav places!).
And lastly this Linen Peasant Top that is UNDER $100 and 40% off rn!
If you did not know, I have an obsession with turtles (sea turtles especially) and this pillow from Anthropologie will be in my possession soon
Thank for listening to all of my chatters. Same time next week?
Love from Ralz, Ashley Caroline
