Weekend Reading 8.9.14

So I totally forgot to post last weekend so you have double the reading to do! Here's what I've been reading the past two weeks! 

You know those adorable tassel bracelets that are all over Instagram? Southern Curls & Pearls gave us a DIY tutorial for tassel bracelets! I can't wait to make my own!

Aeropostle grew up a bit with their recent rebrand! I never shopped there back in my middle school days but now I am seriously considering it!

How to pick the perfect lipstick shade for you! My perfect shade of lipstick is Too Faced Melted Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Marshmellow!

New bloggers, listen up! This blog life is all about building a community. The best place to do so is on Twitter! Kiersten laid down the law and taught us how to build a community using Twitter!

Corals & Cognacs taught us how to improve our Instagram game! Feel free to follow me on Instagram while you're at it!

How adorable is this bow statement necklace from Benevolent Jewels?! Use code AJCODE20 at checkout for 20% off!

Jen talked about being a "Basic Bitch" and not trying so hard. Definitely a must read!

I put new items under my shop tab so make sure to check it out!

Once upon a time, a few of my college friends created an alcoholic popsicle! That popsicle is called a Shotsicle and my friends just launched their crowd funding campaign! Learn more about Shotsicles and donate to a fun startup business!

Earlier this week I briefly discussed my potential travel adventures to come in the future. While traveling the world alone is a completely terrifying idea, it's also completely exciting to me! Brooke's post "Why All Women Should Travel Solo Once in Their Lives" couldn't have come at a better time!

Design Darling is having an incredible 25% off this weekend with code BIRTHDAYBASH! Happy 25th birthday, Mackenzie! Shop some of my personal favorites from the sale below!

With Love,


  1. Thanks so much for sharing my post here, Ashliegh! I'm glad you found it helpful enough to include in this great link round-up :)

  2. Whoa! Thanks for sharing this :)

  3. WOW you have had such a busy summer, Ash. Hopefully more fun, happy weddings to attend than funerals.

    You did such a great job organizing your shelves. Love those Kate Spade boxes (super cute and functional) and that 2-tier tray with your pretty jewels. Definitely pinned.

    Hope the rest of your Summer is more relaxed! Happy Hump Day!! <3 Ada.

  4. I meant to put the above comment on your post with the Kate Spade boxes. Oops.

    As far as these links, I will definitely check out the tassel bracelets and the new Aeropostale. Thanks so much for sharing. =)
