The one with the pasta.

"Everything you see I owe to spaghetti."
-Sophia Loren

Not feeling very wordy today, but I really wanted to share that quote plus the few pictures I snapped last weekend.

I also filmed a "get ready with me" video before we left the house for lunch. This is the first time I tried something like this. It's kind of fun to watch my hands go super fast while applying my concealer. ;)


  1. This was so fun to watch! And I love that tune.
    I jotted down six products that you used, and the tune! Going to check them all out now. :)

  2. The name escapes me right now, but I seriously LOVE that pasta place!

  3. Ashley you're the cutest.

  4. Beautiful photos, and you are adorable as always :)

  5. You take the best photos, Ashley!

  6. I miss your random posts. No words needed for such beautiful photos.

  7. That has always been one of my favorite quotes. I love a good pasta.

    If you ever eat at Uncle Julios in that same shopping center, and if you like steak, get their steak fajitas. I don't love their food but their steak fajitas are amazing. You just have to ask for some butter (can't remember but it might be called Mexican butter) on the side. Sounds strange but melted butter on steak fajitas is amazing.

    There is a lot of other good food to be had in that shopping center but steak fajitas are on my mind right now...their salad with chicken isn't half bad either. Oh man I am just really hungry right now.

    I want to second Diana's comments about missing your random posts.

  8. Ash! This video is so cute! It makes me want to go play with makeup ;)

  9. What a cute video, Ash! I love your smile at the end :)

  10. I think the idea of this video is a neat concept - watching how someone else does things. But I have to admit, I am a little shocked at the number of products you use. I think I counted 20.

    You are such a beautiful person, you don't need all that!

    1. Hi, Darcie.

      Thanks for reading/watching and for your comment. Those who have been following me for a while know that makeup is more than just something I slap on my face in the morning - it's a hobby just like this blog and photography. I think of it as a form of expression, not something to cover up my natural appearance - plus it's fun! :) (That said, I am eternally grateful for under-eye concealer most mornings.)

      This video is meant to be fun and potentially helpful. Makeup, like clothing and most things in life, is a personal preference, and I would never try to push my opinions on someone else.

      But I am for every girl owning at least one lipstick that makes them feel amazing. ;)

  11. That video was so fun! The best part was watching your lips while you applied mascara. I know I do that too! :)

  12. I love that patriotic scarf! :)

  13. How did we miss that you had a blog?? So glad you left a comment because we are now following you via GFC and by email. :-) That way us VA girls can stay in touch! Feel better!! Off to watch your latest video!
